A most enjoyable evening of good fresh buffet food, ample drinks, good service and entertainment that was enjoyable and with pockets of interactive opportunity. The balance of the show to background music was excellent throughout the evening. Good value.

Touristy experience as you’d expect. Entertainment was cheesy but interactive. Not too commercial—only advertised a few items on sale (I’ve heard of much worse at other luaus). Food: delicious meats, sides were fine. Dessert was also fine. It was good to do once, but wouldn’t...More

Pros: great host and talented dancers, good music and historical background provided, great food! Only criticism is the seating, it seems to be the same price if you are front row or back table, so go early if you can.
