We typically like to have dinner out at a fancy place for our final night in the islands. Last year and this year, we chose Gaylord's. Unfortunately, the experience was not as good this year.
On the positive side, the food was very good. I shared the crab appetizer with my daughter - good chunks of crab in a creamy sauce. I had the Ahi main, and it was perfectly rare and very good. My daughter had the scallops and my wife had the Hawaiian swordfish (name escapes me). Both enjoyed their dishes.
However, the service was not good. We felt like we were being ignored in favor of the other tables - perhaps the waitress thought they would be better tippers. We got no check back on our meals, our drinks were late in arriving, and were slow to be re-ordered. Perhaps the most infuriating was when we asked for refills of water. The busboy said, "sure", and then went to every other table refilling their water before refilling ours.
So, all in all, a disappointing end to a great trip.
