We had salad and grilled chicken for lunch. we came in for a burger but there was a delay for burgers so we chose the salads. Service was fine and they do have a bar but we did not purchase any alcohol. It was perfectly fine for our lunch up the mountain.

My husband and I had been site seeing all day and were starved by the time we got to the lodge, it was just after 3:30 and we were told the cafe had stopped serving food at 3:30. The wonderful lady at the register took pity on us and said she might be able to get us some soup that... More

We were staying at the Cabins at Koke'e, so stopped in here for breakfast on our last morning. Service was good; coffee and tea were plentiful; breakfast choices were good, but basic - eggs with sausage, spam or bacon; pancakes; etc. They have a limited menu, but have daily specials. We really wanted to have lunch here one of the... More

So there I was having just finshed the Kukui trail and lived, hot, hungry with green money at 230pm. But first let me tell you a little about me, I love local places, I will deal with not so great food and smile if the people are friendly and have good service. So I walked in at 230 it closes...

We had lunch here while trying to wait off some rain before viewing the lookouts nearby. The food was excellent and there was a nice little shop attached. The kids also had a blast feeding the chickens here.

After driving 18 miles up the road to get a glimpse of the beautiful mountains, stop and get a bite at Kokee' Lodge before you venture down. Based on the reviews of others, I had to give this place a try. Beautiful scenery and a cozy atmosphere makes this place a winner. Great fresh food served with a smile. I... More

After a breath-taking, winding trip up the (extinct) volcano canyon, you don;t expect to find a perfectly civilized lodge and meadow fit for 4th of July. A great resting spot for weary hikers.

Wow. If I had read the reviews before we went here, I probably wouldn't have gone in. There are very limited food choices in the canyon so we went here to allow some time for the clouds to clear (they didn't ☹️). Yes the service is a little slower, but this is Hawaii. They are on island time and in... More

Monday, Sept. 19 I took 2 friends that had never been to Kauai before to the canyon and the lodge for lunch. It took over 8 minutes to get service and when she finally stopped at our table, she said she wasn't sure if we were her table. There are only 2 waitresses in this small restaurant so it shouldn't...
