Great show, wonderful entertainment, gives any stand-up comedy club a run for their money. The Chief is hilarious. Dancers were wonderful. Food is typical buffet luau. The best family fun and best luau on Oahu!

We visited the Chiefs Luau in July. It was a fantastic evenings entertainment. We took our 17 year old son as he wanted to see the fire dancers. The show was very entertaining the Chief was a good showman and kept the audience involved. Be prepared to participate if you are on the top tables. Our son got up and... More

We went to this luau with two 16 year old girls. We ALL had a great time...I would highly recommend this luau to anyone. We paid a little extra for the Royal package, but I don't think it was necessary, we would have had a fabulous time no matter what. Aloha!

Our group of six adults and five children ranging in age from 16 months to 13 truly enjoyed the dinner and show on a Sunday night in late June. The Chief was a great host and the kids were allowed to move around freely not chained to their chairs. We purchased regular seating yet all of us were able to... More

My husband really wanted to experience a luau while visiting family in Ohau. I was a bit skeptical, but did some research and found Chief's luau to be the only one outside and read some really great reviews. It was a beautiful location with cliffs behind, with ocean backdrop for the show. Beautiful sunset! It was incredibly well organized from... More

A fun night out. Set in a beautiful part of Hawaii. Professional photos were value for money. It would be good if we were able to walk through the sea life park a little more. Some groups seemed to be allowed. Food was ok, but dessert was too basic. The people were friendly. I would suggest if you go, get... More

Located in a beautiful region of Oahu it is an absolute must if travelling there. I purchased the Paradise package (2nd tier - gave you a welcome nut lei, buffet and 2 complimentary drinks) and had a great view of the stage. The food was great and you got to go through the buffet first so didn't have to wait... More

I picked the Chief's Luau based on the rave reviews I read online and we were not disappointed. As a family with preteen kids, it is always good to have a family friendly attraction where everyone has a great time. The Chief is funny and the fire dancing was amazing. I would recommend this luau to everyone.

Chief's Luau was a terrific, family friendly, well executed evening. We did spring for the "Premier Package" with closer seats and table service. The extra money was well worth it, but the Luau would have been great even from further back. All performers were top notch and they did a great job of including the audience in the show.
