Ah, to sit and enjoy the view of a giant hole (caldera) with a smaller hole inside smoking (no not POT). It's just cooking off and a fabulous view from the dining room in the Lodge. We had Kuahiwi Burger, Fish and Chips, Stir Fry,...More

Awesome service. Our host Jeremiah and our server April really made our visit here very enjoyable. April was so knowledgeable about the menu and the sites we asked about. This is an awesome place to visit.

While visiting the Volcanoes National Park we needed to grab some lunch and the closest place was Volcano House opposite the visitors center. Normally places like this are a tourist trap with overly inflated prices and tasteless food, but Volcano House was different. When we...More

We stayed at the Volcano House, so we predictably ate at the restaurant, which was maybe not the best decision. The restaurant is quite spacious, clean and has huge windows overlooking the Halema’uma’u crater. The food was really good both for dinner and breakfast buffet,...More

The Volcano House is a must when visiting Volcano. The food is very good, they often have entertainment, but the best entertainment is the view from the rim of the volcanic area…providing the weather and the eruptions cooperate.

I was pleasantly surprised that the food was so good. Near many national park places the food is sub-par but not here. The service was fantastic as well. There was nothing better than enjoying some good food with a fabulous view of the volcano.

Firstly forget about this being a 5*hotel, it's not advertised as one. It is in the middle of the volcano national park and where else can you have lunch, dinner and even a bed overlooking an active volcano ! This hotel is just across from...More

The food was so so. The service was great. The prices high. But we knew this walking in. The view is wonderful and it was enough to make it worth while to visit but not good enough to come back.

I would just call directly. We actually stopped in when we were there for the day. They fill up very quickly due to the fact that it's a hotel and so popular. Our server Beth was one of the best I've ever had and our dinner... More

It's not a huge menu. There is a menu listed online and it appears to be current. We had edamame that is not listed, but most of the others are.
