“Food & Show...pretty good”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

Both the food and show were pretty good overall when you consider the amount of people.

Food was good considering it was buffet. Desserts were kind of boring, but still tasted good.

The show was non traditional, but that was ok. Neat to see another version of it.

Liked it better than Smiths.

“Great show, don't go for the food”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

The luau show was very good, although the sound system was poorly set up and you couldn't understand the story being told. When we went to sit outside the pavilion, we could hear just fine, but inside was bad. The dancers were really great. The food, however was just a regular buffet with a few choices, but not very good. There was no beach, no burying of a pig, or digging him up, just a small ceremony where they brought in something covered up that could have been a pig.
Quite disappointing and very expensive for crummy food and a show.

“Show good food fair”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

We really liked the location of this luau. We knew most luaus are a little tacky, but this one is held on an old sugar plantation, very pretty. You get to tour the mansion. The show was very nice and tasteful, excellent hula and fire dancers. The food however was only fair. Especially for the money. Plus it was soooo hot in the tent thing we were roasting! Some ceiling fans would have done wonders!

“Night of great entertainment”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

First visit to Kauai and this is a must see. Truly a well prepared show. From the wait staff to the over the top entertainers, it's pure Hawaii. Glad we went and would do it again. Plenty of food ,good too, and plenty to drink.
The fire dancers will have you on the edge of your seat.

“Show is wonderful, food is not”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

I would highly recommend the ticket only option of this Luau. The food was not consistent in quality. Some dishes were good, others not so good. The pork should be skipped.
