The founders of the former Waimea Brewing Company opened this snazzy industrial/loft-style microbrewery and restaurant in Port Allen in 2012. The lilikoi ale—one of up to 10 house brews on tap—flavors the batter on fish and chips, but I prefer the silken ahi poke with seaweed salad or the blackened grilled catch of the day. The menu includes fish tacos, burgers (with a falafel veggie option), and other sandwiches. The open-air mezzanine provides an angled view of sunset over the harbor—and it can be mobbed when snorkel boats return midafternoon. Note: The kitchen closes at 9pm, but the bar may stay open later.
