One time only

Somewhat enjoyed. The food was not very good. It was probably the worst food we ate while on Oahu. The best part of the luau was probably the fire show. Weird seating…we were some of the first to get there and they seated us at the very back table. Good to do one time, but won’t do this again for the money.
