Stopped for lunch at 2pm and it was busy! Took a few minutes to get a table ready, but then seated quickly. Waitresses are very friendly and quick. Turkey burger was real turkey - not a frozen preformed patty! Patty melt was cheesy and delicious....More

This place is located just a few minutes away from the National Park. The interior is functional and the wait staff is friendly. The portions were large, the menu had a wide variety of choices, and the prices were pretty good for Hawaii. We enjoyed...More

Surprised at the menu choices. The food is good, service is good, and the prices not bad. It is Hawaii so things are a little more expensive, but worth the price.

Local restaurant in the village of volcano .... which really isn't a village but a square block with a few restaurants and small hotels. Service was friendly but not quick. Local ingredients were nice but nothing stellar about the menu choices. Quick place to grab...More

If your looking for an adequate menu at a good price, try Lava Rock. The Menu is similar to what you'd find at a diner, waffle house, or Denny's The food is well prepared. It is a small café that provided courteous service with Aloha.

We stopped here after a day of exploring at the Volcanoes National Park. There were lots of options on the menu to choose from (including different combos in case you were torn on different things to try). We had some tasty drinks, and my husband...More

We had a fabulous breakfast here - ok not the most modern environment or spotlessly clean and as it is in the middle of a rain forest you will always get bugs. If you have had a bad experience why do you go back.

Volcano Lava Rock Cafe is a restaurant. Think you have this mixed up with a B&B.
