The Rim Restaurant

Big Island Guide Travel Guide

The Rim combines breathtaking views and fresh local ingredients to give their patrons an upscale dining experience. The restaurant is located inside the Volcano House on the edge of the Kilauea caldera. Start your morning with the breakfast buffet offering their freshly baked bread, pastries or made to order waffles with banana butter. Craving a more savory breakfast, the buffet has turkey hash, roasted potatoes, a selection of breakfast meats and an egg station. A variety of hot and cold drinks are also provided with the buffet breakfast.

A lighter fare menu is offered during their lunch hours. Most of the dishes on the lunch menu are also served all day at Uncle George’s Lounge next door.

While the views at The Rim are beautiful any time of day, they are truly stunning as the sun sets and the pale red glow from the Halema’uma’u Crater becomes visible on a clear night. During this time their skillfully innovative chefs prepare meals using a Pacific Hawaiian influence of flavors and ingredients. Some dinner favorites are the pineapple wrapped island fish, the Hilo coffee-rubbed lamb and the grilled fish of the day with Waimea bok choy and lilikoi butter sauce. Saturday through Wednesday from 6pm to 8:30pm you can enjoy live music with your dinner. Advanced reservations are recommended for a table.
