Had the bacon cheeseburger and chocolate shake. Best burger we had on the island. Potato mac salad was very good. I would eat there again.

Ate dinner and breakfast here. Food was good, service was quick and people were friendly. Looked like a lot of families were her, probably because the prices were reasonable.

As mentioned - options for food are limited in the small town. This is a good place to sit down and grab a burger or something similar to eat. Shakes are good and beer is available too.

Good place for a basic menu served up with a relaxed and friendly attitude. Volcano Village is small and isolated, and there are few places to eat. If you want a burger and a beer, fresh made fish and chips or loco moco, this is the place. Popular music from the 50's and 60's was streaming on the sound system... More

We liked our breakfast so much the first day that we went back the second day. The food was great, wonderful service and a nice selection of reasonably priced food. There were 4 women in my group and we split omelets because they were so big. The home fries were delicious!!

This little diner in Volcano had been recommended to us by a local, so we stopped in. The staff was nice and friendly and the menu went the distance for thematically naming food choices. The food was average and the coffee was pretty salty tasting, so I wonder if they didn't filter the water. I wouldn't recommend the home fries,... More

Food was great. Service was great they were very busy when I got there. Taco Salad, loaded baked potato, and macadamia nut pie. They have a wide range of food. I just missed the start of the dinner menu. I would have tried the fish that was crusted in macadamia nuts. Casual setting. They get a lot of travelers from... More

We had stayed near here about 15 years ago, now we are back and looking at Trip Advisor most places seemed to have some negatives, so we went to the Lava Rock Cafe for old times sake. I have to tell you that I cannot recognise many of the comments left here. The service was exemplary and each of the... More
