We bought the higher price tickets to be close to the stage, and were glad we did. The talented cast and imaginative staging made the show a genuine delight! The food was served hot, thoroughly cooked but not dry or tired as one so often experiences at a banquet buffet. This theater production offers a fresh interpretation that remains absolutely... More

We live on Kauai and haven't been to South Pacific in several years. We went last week and found it very entertaining and thought it was better than ever. The acting, music and staging were very good. We particularly enjoyed Emile and Nellie. The dinner was much better than what we'd expected, after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. We encourage...

We went to this dinner show and enjoyed the food and the show... we booked our tickets late the same day so ended up in the back row which was ok but hard to see - if you go I would suggest you book ahead of time to get better seats. As you as you don't go expecting a Broadway... More

The food was served buffet style and was delicious and the actors were excellent. The character who portrayed "Bloody Mary" was excellent and very comical. I truly enjoyed seeing the musical in the South Pacific! The overall production lasted about 3 1/2 hours.

The actors were entertaining but the food was awful. (Nothing worse than a buffet of bland and cold food, especially for the price.) The liquor for the mixed drinks was not premium but the price reflected otherwise. We were disappointed to say the least.

The show was very good, much better than I expected. The food however was not good. It was edible but nothing compared to the level of tastiness usually found on the island. The seats become uncomfortable after about 30 min and we were there for 2.5 hours! It was freezing, so I was miserable. The alcohol was awful, very low... More

The show was worth the price of admission. Very entertaining and the buffet was delicious. If you have time you should check it out.

The buffet dinner was very good--many choices. The performance was enjoyable, just remember this is local theatre, not Broadway or SF. We enjoyed visiting with our tablemates. One tip, Don't wait for any encores--get out quickly. There is a LONG line for the valet parking, and they only have two people picking up cars.

I didn't know what to expect as far as the talent was concerned, being such a small island, but it goes to show that amazing talent is everywhere. The two leads, played by Greg and Cindy, were wonderful, with beautiful voices. "Billis", Patrick, was such a character. Made me lol a few times! "Lt. Cable" was performed by the understudy,... More
