This was our second luau at Smith's. They are by far the best on the island. Everything is about family and the experience. All drinks are included and the food is fantastic for a luau. You can't say that for all luaus but you can say it for Smith's. Kamika and his whole family really put on a show with... More

Four generations of the Smith family still run the luau. My husband is disabled and was so impressed by the owner coming over personally to see if he needed anything. Food was pleniful and more importantly delicious. Best IMU pig that we ever had. Highlight of our 12 days in Hawaii. They knew how to properly handle the close to... More

A family run business that ofers a first rate experiance. First a trolley ride around the gardens with our driver explaining all that we see. Then the ceremonial removal of the pig from the ground. Next one of the best Luau feasts you could ever,the pork and beef were to die for. Then you leave to take a short walk... More

My husband booked this luau based on several different site reviews and we thought since it's a family owned business we might get a more genuine experience. The luau starts with a tour of the property on a little tram. The property has some nice features but it is very manicured and doesn't feel very authentic. Our tram was propane... More

If you do nothing else on Kauai make sure you get to the Smiths Family Garden Luau. It is a real treat. We went to 3 Luaus, this one, the one at Polynesian Cultural Center and the one on Maui called Old Lahaina Lua. All were good, but by far Smiths was the best!!! First the garden grounds are very...

This is a great experience. Everyone gave great energy, service and entertainment. We went to a Monday night show (hard to find activities on that night in the area). But it was full, and everyone enjoyed the drinks, plentiful food after a shuttle ride around the acres of gardens with native plants well labeled and described by our guide. For... More

My husband and I have done luaus on every Hawaiian island so when we visited Kauai the first time for part of our honeymoon, we decided to look for a good luau on the island. Smith's is a great experience. It actually rained on the day of the luau so it was great that dinner took place under a covered... More

The Smith family is incredibly hospitable and I couldn't imagine a more beautiful setting. The food was excellent and alcoholic drinks were included. There were about 250 people there so it was a very touristy place to be.

This was our first luau so not much to compare it to. We booked here because it was $20 cheaper than the other luaus on the island, and I wasn't thrilled about going to a luau (but as my husband said, "when in Rome"). However, I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food and the overall ambience of... More
