Absolute worst meal of the trip. We are very easy people usually with no complaints however, this experience was awful. Our waitress was incredibly slow, as was the kitchen. Our food came out after and hour wait. It was not even busy at all. Then, my fish was completely raw and the other meals very unsatisfactory. There was a nice... More

We stopped for drinks and got in on some special. It was a phenomenal amount of drinks for a very low price.

This was by far the worst place we had the displeasure to visit on our holiday in Fort Lauderdale ! We arrived expecting to have dinner and a few nice cocktails, but having been eventually shown to a table, we found that it had not been cleaned....it was actually sticky and dirty. When we asked someone if they had a... More

The service was awful! They were out of many things on the menu. The manager replied to us and said well we have wings and fries. Very unprofessional and unfriendly atmosphere for visitors. I will never visit or recommend. Worst service in my travels.

This is the worst restaurant/bar in all of Fort Lauderdale. Manager STINKS! Also understaffed and they have the worst Customer Service.. This was the worst experience of my life. Food was awful, drinks were watered down and service was the worst. They should really be out of business and I'm sure their return rate is far below 1%.

When you're in Ft. Lauderdale Beach, you have to try Da Big Kahuna on a Friday night. Not only is the food terrific and the service great, but at 8:00 p.m. there is a free Polynesian dance show that is dynamite. And it's free! Incredible. You will not forget the show, and the staff is so friendly and helpful. You... More

If exposed light fixtures, dirty tables, smell of stale beer and a run down look doesn't scare you away, sit at the table, open the dirty, stained menu and you can't wait to get up to leave. However with that said, with hungry kids in tow, and pouring rain, we decided to eat cook food only! Food was fair and... More

Da Big Kahuna was in the complex of our hotel and we ate here twice and really enjoyed it. There is a beautiful view and the burgers are great! There is always a guy in the front of the place handing out wrist bands for 2 for 1 drinks too. It is reasonably priced and service is good.
