“Great for families”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Mass production. Would be great for older people and families with children. Wasn't what we were looking for. Drinks only from 6:30 - 7:30. Food was good though! Hundreds of people in large long tables. Then you move to another location to see the show. Beautiful grounds.

“Great luau...even if they do serve poi.”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

This was a fun luau, that actually gave good value. Elapsed time was about 4 hours. This included a shuttle ride around the grounds with descriptions of the local flora and fauna. A stop to watch the unearthing of a pig for the feast, then open bar while waiting to eat. Wine, beer and Mai Tai's were flowing freely. The food was good for a buffet, so no complaints. Stage music during the meal. Following this we walked to the big stage and were treated to quite a nice show that lasted an hour. Well done. This is the best luau we've attended.

“Fun luau”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I enjoyed all the activities offered at the luau: the tram tour, walking in the gardens, dinner, and information about the luau and preparation of the food. The show itself was pretty fun as well.

“Best Luau in Kauai”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Take the Fern Grotto boat tour ( a mere $20, $ 18 with AAA card ) before the Luau. We made the mistake of booking the 3:30 boat and didn't have time to walk the grounds of the Smith Family Luau before dinner was served. The gardens are worth a look, so make sure to allow an hour or so too check out the different " villages " set up on the grounds, it's worth it and best of all, no extra cost.
The food was great and the show offered a look at various cultures that inhabit the islands. Worth the cost, although I cringed at the price initially.
