Friendly greeting with Mai Tais at the door before we were shown to our table. We saw the pig in the ground, then returned you our seats to eat. Orderly trip to the buffet with our waiter who described the myriad of dishes. With dinner done it was time for the show. Live band played the Hawaiian wedding song and... More

This is our 3rd luau , typical luau food and best food by far. Typical show and not a bad seat in the house. Reserve the table and chair instead of sitting on the floor with a cushion. The only thing missing were the fire dancers. Paid $105 thru costco pp.

Admittedly, this was my first luau. First time in Hawaii, too. I'd wanted to take my family and friends to this particular luau as it had the best reviews, and I can understand why. The food was wonderful...so many options and so good! The service was great...everyone was friendly and helpful. The layout was great, too...not a bad seat in... More

This was a very good experience. You're able to watch them take the pig out of the ground and the view and show were beautiful.

This was our first ever luau. It was worth the money! We reviewed several on Maui and Oahu before we chose this one. We must have made the right choice, because it was delicious and memorable. The food was flavorful and non-ending. The pork, the chicken, the veggies, the fruit...it was all mouth-watering! The drinks were also spectacular. My wife... More

If you appreciate history and culture you will enjoy this experience. Good food and drinks. Great service our server was attentive and fun. The dancing and chant immersed you in the ritual and importance of both hula and the Luau to the people of Maui.

For $100 per person you get all you can eat Hawaiian style along with an all you can drink open bar. Couple that with beautiful Hawaiian dancers and you have an unforgettable experience. The servers are great too but do not forget to tip them because that is not included in the $100 per person tab. I can see why... More

The food was ok, the entertainment was better, the service was best....but, honestly, it's hard to justify $125 per person with tip, total $600....not sure it was worth that even understanding this is Hawaii at the height of tourist season. I would pay that for a great B'way show or an amazing 5 start dinner....this was neither. If money is... More
