Fun and lots of food.

Great time, we'll organized, very good entertainment. There was a lot of food with some authentic Hawaiian dishes. If you buy one of their mugs at the gift shop your 3 drink tickets go a lot further. I highly recommend that you book a tour as it is in a rather remote location which could be... read more

Overcrowded, overpriced. The food is not good and the show is less than average. You are seated in an open space that has no charm and is not in front of the sea. When the food is ready you have to line for more than then minutes if you are not lucky enough to be one of the first to... More

This being my first luau I didn't know what to expect at all, that being said don't go. Oahu has plenty to offer so don't waste your precious time at a luau. The drinks were okay the food was horrible we did not like it at all & actually ended up getting sick by morning. If a cheesy variety show... More

Bit of a tourist trap. Buyer beware. Pity as this was my first luau experience. Sums up so much here in Oahu Waikiki. Overrated.

Upon arrival, we discover the "Beautiful" setting in the middle of an industrial park and smell the fresh manure-filled air. Awesome first impression. Luckily we were a big group and we reserved our private table, so that when it was time to fight for your seats amongst 800+ guests, we just sat down. Then came time to get drinks... In... More

The food was bad. Said it was on beach. It was not. At least no where near the surf. Sat on hard benches. Some entertainment was good but most not. They even messed up the Hawaiian wedding song. The worst was the annoying guide. Considered taking a taxi back to the hotel. Not worth the time.

Reviewers below have given good overviews of the food, show and location. We drove and arrived early. We had great seats as our picnic table was near the front. It was a very hot and humid evening and there were many choices available for watery and oversweetened drinks. Beer was also available and after the first cocktail I switched to... More

This seemed like the orginal Luau. The staff kept you entertained and informed on the ride. It was very interesting to watch them remove the pig from the ground and get it ready for us to eat. The entertainment was very good and the kept the audience involved.

I was really looking forward to having an authentic experience, but this felt contrived. We were ushered to a distant location and herded through the motions. We were given a lei upon arrival (a shell necklace) and the luau pig-Imu was about 10 minutes. The food was mediocre, but the entertainers were pretty good.

Ok entertainment, many of the dancers fabulous but some not very believable and one seemed to make a joke of everything. Food not anything special, chocolate cake best part! Our bus tour guide Travis was really fabulous and, seemed to really enjoy his job!
