Good start to the day. For only $9-10 you can get a nice pancake, French toast or egg and bacon breakfast. We wanted a big breakfast before our day of touring. This Worked great. We wondered about this restaurant based on reviews. But it was morning and there were no tour busses. We were greeted and our order was placed quickly. The water & coffee was brought right out. Those that ordered the french toast said it was only ok. One said the sweetbread taste was too sweet, the other said it was a little mushy in center. Overall service was good but not great. The food was good. The food was a little slow arriving and then it was slow cashing out, but that seems standard in Hawaii. The restrooms were clean. We recommend if not too busy.

We ate here as part of a bus tour around the island. The meal cost $14.00 each and included a drink. I ordered the grilled Mahi Mahi. I must say, for $14.00, I expected a bit more. The fish was overcooked and a bit bland and the sides were so forgettable that as I write this review a week later, I honestly cannot remember what they were. The iced tea was good however. All in all, I'd say if you go on the bus tour, save your money and pack a lunch.

Great food, burgers are flame broiled, fries were great as well, good service, only problem was the friendly flies who wanted to land on you all the time.

Service was friendly, but the food was mediocre diner fare, at best. The bathrooms were outside, dirty, and out of paper towels, too. You'd be better off spending a little more at Volcano House where the food and view are light-years better.

Service 4/5; value 4/5; atmosphere 4/5; Food 3.5/5
Like many others visiting the area we pondered about where to eat. We did a lot of research of the few choices in the area but decided to go to Lava Rock per a local guide we ran into at the visitors center. The service was very good and very friendly (remember you're in Hawaii). There was a live musician who was very good. It is a nice local cafe / pub. We didn't want to eat too much so we ordered some simple food (salad and soup) so that is why we gave it a 3.5 out of 5. The place is good for all types of groups.
