Really enjoyed the food as well as the entertainment that was on during the Luau. It is a buffet and this is mentioned on the tickets

The food for the luau was tasty, but served cafeteria buffet style. If you get the Barbecue beef or pork make sure you look for the barbecue sauces. The chicken was good. The veggie offerings minimal at best. Sautéed green beans. And salad. That said...More

So, you only have an hour to eat. You can find your seats half an hour sooner but your server lets you know at the assigned time when you can go up. I had ONE plate of food. I was watching the entertainment and waiting...More

We wanted to go to a luau during our visit to Oahu. Since we had purchased the Oahu 3-day pass (worth every penny!!) we got to attend this one for free. The show was good with great dancing and live entertainment, but the food was...More

The seats were reserved seating when I attended but I would say it’s best to be back about 10 rows or more because it is a spectacular and a very wide stage area.
