What an amazing experience to celebrate my 60th birthday. Incredible food, exceptional service and mind blowing show.
From pick up to delivery to our accommodation after the show a perfect package deal
Our escort Camden and waiter Evan were the icing on the cake

This was a great alternative to the usual luau show. We did the green room package, which came with an interesting backstage tour, meeting the artists before the show, and front row seats. The food was good, but heavy on the seafood which I don't eat. Honestly, there was enough food that I didn't leave hungry, so not eating the seafood was no big deal, I just felt bad it was wasted. The impersonators included Elvis, Katy Perry, and Michael Jackson. Elvis and Michael Jackson were amazing. Katy Perry definitely needed some work. Otherwise the show was fabulous. The local hula and fire throwing dancers were unbelievable.

The show was great, and the service was even better! Our waiter was Evan Reyes, and he was outstanding. From the moment we walked in the theatre he provided us with everything we needed.As a matter of fact the whole staff was very attentive to us. Hell, the chef even stoopped by our table and talked. This was agreat experience from finish to end!! Thank you Rock-a-hula!!!!

Two couples on a 10 day Honolulu vacation. One grew up in Honolulu and the rest of us have visited several times. This was the first time at Rock-A-Hula. We had the buffet up on the terrace. It was extremely hot and there was not even a fan blowing. Then we were the last table to be called which meant we sat there and waited more than 20 minutes (watching the others eat) before we were called to get in line. Which meant we had very little time to actually eat. Then it was wait in a single long line while one man carved beef. It was so raw that he had a hot skillet he was cooking each thin slice to order. That was good, but took forever. The beef ended up really tough. The rest of the buffet was very bland without many options at all. The entertainers during the buffet were very nice, but you had to get up to get even your own water.
The show was good, Elvis was good, Michael Jackson was good, but I don't know if I would consider Katie Perry a Legend. I thought the show should have been longer than one hour.
Knowing what I know now, we would have just bought tickets to the show and not the buffet. Those that just bought tickets were seated right behind us.

Aloha marieandpat,

Thank you for your praise of the show! As with all carving stations, the cuts are made to order as part of the presentation. I am also pleased to hear that he cooked your portion to your desired temperature. In order to limit the amount of time guests are standing in line, we help manage the flow of guests to the buffet. Meanwhile, the musician and hula dancers are providing table-side entertainment as well as drink service, as the water station is for those whom would prefer not to wait for drink order to be fulfilled. We appreciate your sharing that by choosing the Terrace Luau package, it includes the best seats in the mezzanine. Thank you for recently visiting us for the first time, and we hope to see you and your friends again soon!
