Very funny lodge, very weird room with tackiest decor ever, loudest bathroom fan, windows on parking lot, so no privacy. Extremely noisy drains at night when it rains. Otherwise bed okay and good housekeeping and cleanliness. Front desk in a separate building 2 miles away.

Aloha Lokahi Lodge is not us! That house is managed By Chalet Kilauea and has nothing to do with Kilauea Lodge. We are miles apart. Lorna More

The restaurant is in a classic lodge built in the 30s with a large fireplace. Excellent service and well prepared food. I enjoyed the paupiettes of beef. I 'd suggest reservations. The restaurant is quite popular.

We had wonderful breakfast here! Green sands omelet and banana pancakes were delicious! The portions are really big- good to eat before hiking in Volcanoes National Park ;-) Friendly staff.

Annie had Mahi-Mahi, it was good. I had a creamy white fish(don't remember the name) but seared, medium rare. This we both felt was excellent. Best meal ever eaten at an American National Park. You can't get a fine restaurant type of meal at Glacier, Yellowstone, or the Grand Canyon National Park restaurants. Not just because it was "fish", I... More

We had dinner last month (October, 2016) at the Kilauea Lodge.. We had reservations as advised by our hotel staff but did notice empty tables during the evening. Having dined there previously we had our mind set on duckling a la orange. However, when we arrived we found that this dish was not on the menu that evening. In fairness,... More

There aren't many places to eat in Volcano, but this place is a gem. The menu is diverse. I wondered where/how they got the ingredients for dishes that even in mainland cities would be eclectic. The menu changes daily and all entrees came with a soup or salad, starch, and a vegetable. We tried both of the soups, a creamy... More

Friends recommended this restaurant so we made reservations. It's a casual cozy environment. The staff was super friendly. They have some unique and diverse entrees on the menu which vary in price from mid $20s and average low to mid $30s. The starter bread was great and on this night had sunflower seeds in it. The hunter soup was a... More
