If you are staying near Volcano, Hawaii, there aren't many "fine dining" options. We knew this when we made reservations, still we expected a pleasant dining experience. If this restaurant was anywhere other than in a high tourist area, it would have to improve the menu or lower prices if it wanted to survive. If I was to stay in the area again, I'd seek other options, perhaps pick up dinner from the Thai food truck parked nearby and take it to our B&B with a nice bottle of wine.

The Chef at Kilauea Lodge is one of the property owners. The menus are inventive, interesting and use many local ingredients. The soups are amazing. The menu doesn’t change every day, but there is plenty to select from, if you are staying in Volcano for 2-3 days. Service can be a bit slow sometimes, but the wait staff is friendly and actually seems to appreciate that you have chosen the Lodge for your dining experience. The martinis are wonderful and served in a manner to ensure they remain cold to the last drop! We stayed two nights and had dinner twice, breakfast twice and ordered a packed lunch (which was quite good) to take with us to the Park. Absolutely worth a visit!

I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a cozy hunting lodge. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The soup was amazing and the house salad was refreshing. The table was split on the fresh warm bread – one person thought it was great, but another felt that there wasn't enough butter. Everyone loved the duck. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were too expensive for us.

We were very disappointed with our meal; we both ordered the Antelope, which was described as "Antelope leg" with mashed potatoes and veggies. For $30, it was cubes of meat sitting on the plate in a soup of gravy. Tasted fine, nothing spectacular, but presentation was so awful it ruined the whole experience. For $30 I expect at least trying to make the food presentable.

I made reservations online and noted that it was for a birthday. They called the day before to get the name of the birthday person. It was a nice surprise to see all the staff greet us with huge smiles and happy birthday wishes. They even set balloons out on the table and printed a special personalized Happy Birthday message on the menus. The food was delicious!! The prime rib rolls were so tender and flavorful on the inside and light & crispy on the outside. We also had a fillet of succulent duck with candied oranges...yum!! We added lilikoi margaritas to it and called it a party. But still all of that goodness was topped off with lilikoi cream cheese and chocolate decadence pie slices, they were perfect! What made it even better was that all the staff got together and sang a nice upbeat Happy Birthday song to the tune of "Do-Wah-Diddy" while they brought out the dessert. Excellent experience!!

We found this restaurant by chance after a day at the Volcano. We decided it would be a perfect spot to celebrate my parents birthdays. Let me tell you, we were so right! Such an amazing experience! The food was absolutely amazing, some of the best I’ve ever had. Great drinks also. My parents loved the meal and they had decorated our table with balloons for their birthdays which was so thoughtful of them. We will definitely be back when we come back to the big island!

Wonderful ambience. Sat near the fireplace and had a romantic dinner which was utterly superb. Home-baked bread to die for, exquisite celery soup, and I had the seafood pasta which was fresh and well-seasoned. Even the salad dressing was special. My husband had a delectable lobster salad. The server was very knowledgeable and friendly. We'll definitely be back for special occasions, given the price. But it was well-worth it.

A beautiful night. The staff's attention was exceptional, taking extra steps on our Anniversary. Both soups were mouth watering, full of fresh flavors and perfect on a cool night. The homemade warm bread was great. The blackenedd ono had a little cajun kick while the duck special in apricot and mustard sauce just melted in your mouth. We had the carrot cake, solid nutmeg holiday favor, not sugary sweet on the icing. They had run out of bread puding, which tells you how great it is. We had it last year, superb.

The Lodge is our go-to place in Volcano. We are always impressed by how we meet locals as well as people from around the world at the Lodge. We had dinner as well as breakfast on this visit. Starting with the melted brie appetizer, we enjoyed the eggplant and kampachi mains that were well prepared and tasty. Another very nice meal in relaxing surroundings was enjoyed by all.
