Germaine's is not a glitzy, slick luau. Rather, it's homey, friendly & fun. It's location is not in Honolulu. It is on the beach in Kapolei, about 1/2 hour from Honolulu. We had a car and were directed to arrive around 5:00-5:15, before the buses. The luau is open seating, so getting there before the buses is a great suggestion!
The bar opened at 6 and the show started around 6:45 or so. Dinner included three drink tickets, but some fancy drinks required two tickets. No problem, the mai-tais were one ticket and the bartenders never scrimped on the alcohol.
Dinner was served buffet style and there was plenty of food: koloa pig, chicken, fish, rice, poi, salads, etc. Plates were cardboard and utensils were plastic, but they worked.
The show was a typical luau show, but they did get guests up on stage a few times to add to the fun. It was a fun, good-quality show, but the highlight was the fire dancer. He was excellent.
Cost for the show was $78, but discounts were plentiful. Just ask around. AAA also had a discount.
