Good basic lunch

This is the only show in town, but the food is decent. We had a sandwich and a salad, both of which were good. I understand that the soups and cornbread are very good

Stopped here for lunch. Food very good, service excellent and very prompt delivery. Good value. The Apple salad was the best choice, sodas all one price and self serve tea and coffee

About the only place to grab breakfast or lunch when visiting the park. There is a park museum located right next door which is well worth a gander.

After the drive up, it was time for lunch, so we were glad this place was here. The restaurant itself is not fancy, but more rustic. Nothing to really write home about. The grounds are lovely (and equipped with the ever present chickens) and the parking is free and easy. One reviewer called the food 'glorified cafeteria food'. I wouldn't... More

As you travel through Waimea Canyon into Koke'e State Park you may be a bit hungry if you didn't pack a picnic lunch (like us) so we were really happy to see Koke'e Lodge in the same lot as the Koke'e museum. There are lots of chickens around and if you have packed a lunch there are picnic tables too.... More

I can't believe we actually just walked out of a restaurant without eating!! The service in this restaurant is the absolute worst I've seen in my entire life! Honest! We came to this restaurant three years ago and had almost the exact same experience but figured since it's the only place for miles around we give it another shot. Wrong... More

We went here after doing a hike. A rain storm was coming and this was a nice place to watch the rain and have a nice meal. Yes, a bit expensive, but the service was good and the grilled cheese sandwiches were basic, but tasty. There was also a nice gift shop with some local crafts and books - and... More

Putting it into the context that she was working alone and handling not only the dining room, but also the banquet room with a tour group in it, she did well. Still maintained a friendly outlook and was helpful. In my opinion the Portuguese Bean Soup is worth it, along with the cornbread. Yes, the menu is a bit limited... More

however, we found the service delightful. We ate there 4 times. Their food is very tasty, but do know they bring it up in their car--hence the convenience "fee". My fave shirt from the trip is their
