Excellent location, rooms and dining

Great place to stay overnight and look into the crater - cannot see the lava or glow at night, but lots of steam vents - watch the cloud form every morning above the crater - nice rooms - superb dinner and breakfast in the restaurant - many trails are closed due to recent activity.

Great lunch outstanding view

My husband and I stopped at Volcano house on a whim. It was a clear day and you could see right into the Kilauea caldera while dining on Hawaiian delights. I had a ginger shrimp with Jasmine rice in a sweet and sour broth. My husband had the Hawaiian sampler which was beautifully presented in a bento box. It contained poke, poi, fish, even haupia. The service was very attentive as well.
