Volcano House hotel houses a fine-dining restaurant that overlooks the rim of Kilauea caldera and its fiery glow. Featuring two bars, a lounge, and live entertainment, it highlights island-inspired cuisine and incorporates locally sourced produce and other ingredients. Paired with Hilo coffee-rubbed rack of lamb, the creamy kabocha squash soup warms up a cool Volcano night. The Taste of Hawaii lunch menu comprises a choice of entrée (kalua pork, fresh catch, chicken, or stir-fry) and five local-style side dishes, such as poi, ahi poke wonton, and haupia pudding, plus beverage; at $19.50, it's a great deal. Breakfast daily, lunch 11 to 2.
