Description: Kilauea Lodge and Restaurant, located in the quiet village of Volcano...
Kilauea Lodge and Restaurant, located in the quiet village of Volcano, sits on 5 acres of gardens and gazebos and native forest. This hotel restaurant features a large fireplace, local art, koa tables, and is open nightly.

Volcano Village is at 3700 feet elevation and evenings are often cool and misty. The historic fireplace welcomes guests with it's cheery fire. Home made soups and breads tease the appetite. Albert specializes in unusual game...venison, antelope, rabbit, duck. The biggest sellers are local fish dishes; ahi, ono, mahimahi and the exotic Tristan lobster. A large wine list complements the eclectic menu.

Great for lunch

Fresh, good prices for this area. Had the fish sandwich (catch of the day was ono fish) and it was delicious. Also had the beet soup - borsht. Great! Fast and friendly service. If you're in the Park all day make this quick trip out for lunch. Save your receipt for the Park.

This country inn is located just outside Volcano Park. The rooms are very roomy, comfortable, with a large bathroom with all the amenities. We enjoyed several breakfasts and dinners in a large charming room. The wait staff were pleasant and well trained.

We ate at the Kilauea Lodge restaurant twice during our stay in Volcano. The food and the service for both lunch and dinner were excellent. Get the steak.

Just reopened after several years of renovation. Nice view of the crater from the restaurant! Cheaper accomodations within the national park in the military camp area.

This place seems to have every thing going for a fine dining experience. Great setting, warm, cosy atmosphere, excellent looking menu and friendly staff. It did not deliver on the food. They provide fresh bread and the choice of salad or soup for starters, a good concept. I had the soup, a tasty broth. My partner opted for the salad... More

We stayed at this lovely lodge in room 6. It was great! We enjoyed the rain and the hot tub. We had dinner and breakfast at the lodge. They have a large variety of selections. The service was excellent. Everyone is very friendly.

19 Years and counting... Coming back is truly coming home. The warmth is found not only in the beautiful quilts, the heated towels and the endless detail, but also the staff and owners. Aloha you guys!

Our food was good, as was our service, but it always irks me to have a shared plate charge, ESPECIALLY a $10.00 charge, as was the case here. We split the lamb chops and the fish special (Ono),

While staying on the Kona coast we travelled with friends to visit the volcano and spent a night at the Kilauea Lodge and as we had heard rave reviews of the restaurant there we made a reservation and were not at all disappointed. One of our friends had the seafood pasta while the other had an excellent fish dish. Both... More

We stopped for lunch on the way to Volcano National Park around 1pm on a Tuesday and the place was slammed. There were six in our group and we'd heard so many great things we put our name on the list and waited. Glad we did - service and food were wonderful and the building charming! Don't miss this stop!
