This hotel restaurant features a large fireplace, local art, koa tables, and is open nightly.

Volcano Village is at 3700 feet elevation and evenings are often cool and misty. The historic fireplace welcomes guests with it's cheery fire. Home made soups and breads tease the appetite.

A large wine list complements the eclectic menu.
