“Nice place to take a break”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Clam chowder was really good, Chili was okay, but the corn bread was fantastic. Very much a lodge feel in the mountains.

“Kokee Lodge Restaurant”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This is the only place to get a meal served in the Kokee park area. Food is ok for the price with breakfast probably the best. French toast was good and the portion was large. Nice view in the morning sitting by the window as the morning fog lifts off the park and forestr areas. If you want to save money, buy a bento lunch before making the trip up the hill. Never has any problem with service or servers.

“Lunch at Kokee Lodge Restaurant”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

In spite of some of the bad reviews, I had a good lunch with a Hawaiian ale. The service was pleasant. I am glad the place was there for a convenient lunch a long way from any options.

“Not much Aloha here.”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Our experience at the Kokee Lodge Restaurant was terrible. The service was SO rude. Our server had a terrible attitude from the moment we sat down. Our food was okay. I got the loco moco and my husband had a burger. We were going to get dessert (after all we were on vacation), but the server was clearly not interested in selling it to us as she rudely slapped our bill on the table without asking, saying have a nice day, nothing. We when paid at the cash register the place was not busy, yet the cashier completely ignored my greeting and thank you.

“Unique, a nice rest stop after hiking”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

I think this may be the only place to eat up on the mountain. The food is nothing fancy, but good. It reminded me more of Alaska, than Hawaii.
