This restaurant is located behind the Kilauea General Store. You will find locals and tourists enjoying the food here. My favorite is the cheeseburger with a side of greens. The cheeseburger is ample and is cooked to order. For the green salad, I always ask for the house dressing which is made with lilikoi (passionfruit). It is so delicious!! The Big O burger is equally good but it is HUGE!!

The service is friendly. There is a bar if you'd like some alcohol with your meal. The desserts are baked by a woman in Volcano. The pumpkin crunch is a favorite along with a hot cup of coffee for the perfect end to a satisfying meal. The prices are reasonable.

There's not a lot of dining choices in the Volcanos Park area. We were pretty hungry late afternoon and this was where we ended up. The prices are pretty steep for what you end up getting. The Mahi Mahi sandwich was fairly bland, served on meager tasting bread. So-so veggie burgers and watered down iced tea. Maybe we came on a bad day?

We went out of our way to eat here, and delayed our trip back to Kona for it. I had heard good things about the place but perhaps they are out of date.

Food was mediocre, nothing special. Small portions, kinda reminds me of a truck stop food spot .. which I guess it it, attached to a gas station.

If you happen to be there, it's passable .. but I would not go out of my way to eat here.
So many better place in Kona and Hilo ..

Not fancy but a pretty varied selection of reasonably priced, well-prepared food. Delicious desserts and full bar. What more do you want in Volcano?

At first search, you may miss the place. It is in the back of a small mall off of Old Volcano road as all the other restaurants are in Volcano.
It is nice and open atmosphere with art on the walls and a local ambiance. The menu offers pretty much what you would need with decent choices. We ate there for breakfast and it was good and the prices were not that crazy. We enjoyed it and would go back again if we were in town.
