The food was good, the service was friendly, and I liked the quirky/artsy decor. This was actually our second choice after we didn't get any service at 'Ohelo Cafe (see my other review) but I'm glad we ended up here and I'd go back again/recommend it to anyone.

We ate here a couple times and both times the food and service were very good. Can get busy and there is minimal parking. Staff quite friendly. The burgers are the best.

We had great burgers and milkshakes here. It's popular but we were served fairly quickly. Nice rest stop while seeing the volcano sights - not too far outside the park.

We had the bacon, gauc, and mushroom burgers and a pulled pork sandwich. We all agreed that they were fantastic! Normally I don't finish a burger in one sitting but these burgers I couldn't put down! The atmosphere was fun, but the chairs need some love- I felt like I had to sit on the edge of mine or else... More

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
