We had a terrific time! The music and dancing was not only entertaining but educational and authentic. It is obvious that the Director and her crew have put a lot of energy and effort into developing a quality event. Food and drinks were top notch.

This was the first luau we’ve been to, and we really enjoyed it! We appreciated the smaller setting. We had VIP seating, but I would say save the extra $ and just get reg seating as there was not a bad seat in the house....More

They do not have the pig there, however at other shows where they did that is was no big deal. Also the food here is better than others I have gone to.
