The chef modified some dishes for the vegetarians. The Coconut Haupia was delicious. The plates were Hawaiian size.There were several local Hawaiians and great live music. We went there early - around 5:30 pm. The place filled up quickly and we saw people waiting outside when we finished.

This place is dirty and understaffed. No one even acknowledged us for 15 minutes. Our drink orders were taken but never came and no one even came back to check on us. We ended up leaving.

Pulled pork sandwiches were awesome and burger was better than average. Good value as there are few choices for restaurant meals in Volcano. Would go back there again.

We had shrimp and crab rolls and it definitely came out of a can. There is not much in this town but I'd avoid this restaurant!
