The show is better than the food. The food sucks, drinks we ever watered down. You will pay $135 per person for a salad.

The performers were wonderful, the service was great and the food was good for a buffet. While the luau was "commercialized" the performers were everything we could have wished for. They also had a "kid friendly" food selection for children and less adventurous adults. The...More
