My family enjoyed the activities and show. Dinner was okay and filling. I personally thought most of the show was a bit cheesy especially the emcee. Dancers were awesome and athletic. I would return with family again if we come back.

I was there Did not enjoy the Food (near uneatable) and surely did not enjoy some of the program. (have not been so insulted since I got back from Combat). The best part of the show was the 8 year old fire dancer. Being in a mobility scooter I was seated right at the back and could not see what... More

I booked this for the family of 4 that included a 23 year old daughter and 16 year old son. It takes a lot for them to be impressed and engaged. They, along with my wife and myself, thought it was an excellent show. The price is a good deal compared to others I researched, and is an excellent value.... More

This was a great choice for our family of six with a small child and teens. Everyone enjoyed the evening. The dancers were energetic and talented. Dinner offered a few new dishes we wouldn't have tried otherwise along with plenty of things the kids were fighting over. Definitely a great value and something we would love to do again.

Used to be one of the best in Oahu. Now everything is "consolidated" from the beginning activities, although they are more than proud to show off the roasted pig to nauseum. Food was average, although one in our party didn't get to eat because her silverware was solidified together with food. Both forks solidly and the spoon had large chunks... More

My wife and I were not as impressed with the luau as other reviewers. We hadn't read all the reviews prior to buying our tickets and like another reviewer had missed (still not exactly sure where it says it) that this is 'military only' when we bought the tickets online. The people at the box office granted us an exemption... More

They put on a great show and, unlike PCC, have alcohol :). This is worth seeing and even better if you don't want to deal with traffic to another location.

There are pros and cons to every luau and what I missed in the show part was made up for in the food part. I finally found the kalua pig that I liked. I've been to some luaus where the pig tasted too gamey. I also liked the fact that you were served at the table instead of going through... More

Extremely disappointed and disgusted that the Hale Koa Luau no longer provides a military discount for service members stationed in Hawaii. For a business designed for the benefit of military service members, it is shocking to hear of such a business practice. While still one of the best Luaus on the island of Oahu,the management needs to rethink this decision.
