This was our first luau and didn’t know what to expect. Overall interest experience. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food was ordinary, and would expect a bit more for the price. The show and host were good, good music and performance but seating can be improved. Except for a few line tables in front (prob VIP that require additional expense), almost all other seats have blocking views by trees. I didn’t keep track of time but the overall performance was perhaps about 30 minutes, which was much shorter than expected. The following day I randomly ran into another cultural event (free) and had much better viewing of the hula dance and other traditional performance.

Very nice all around show and meal, by reading other reviews we did arrive early and had general seating by the stage. It didn’t rain and I enjoyed the food. The drinks were awful, it seems that no one could get a simple sweet and fruity drink right. The pork was seasoned, the beef was tender and the fish was delicious. The best part of the potato salad was the sweet potatoes and unfortunately, they were a small garnish. Otherwise the show was entertaining, fire dance, and being by the water was an added bonus.

Make sure to get there early and get a good table so you can see the stage well. Otherwise you’ll end up behind a tree and unable to see the dancers. Plan for potential rain, it rained for the first hour while we had our meal. The food is plentiful and mostly good. The staff is pleasant and helpful.
