Seating and eating order was very confusing. Expectations were not clear. Food was ok. Show was good
Waste of money! The dancers were wonderful but the food and venue not food at all!

Way too many people on the patio. I ran into a chat and I have a huge bruise just trying to navigate to my table. The food was awful..,, pork too salty! Fish very dry! Overpriced and awful !
Save your money

Was a bummer. Food was not great and when it was our turn to go get our plates, all the pans were empty, our server forgot our drinks multiple times and overcrowded seating. So overpriced. Dancing was the only redeeming part but it was really hard to see between the overcrowded seating and posts. And our kids were so disappointed to not receive a flower lei but a braided grass necklace. The whole experience was lacking.
Fantastic first luau
Lindsay_C, Mar 2023
Our first luau and a great one. We paid for the VIP experience and got seated right away at 5:30 with drinks. Buffet opened shortly thereafter. Good selection of items on the buffet. The Hawaiian pork and rolls were our favorites. Show started around 6:45 and lasted about an hour. Good narrative to go along with the dances. The highlight was the end with the fire dance.
Very small setting overlooking hill on golf course leading to ocean. While we paid for VIP the show was probably as good of view from other tables but we did get front row. Service was good throughout the night refreshing drinks and removing plates. Very enjoyable evening and would recommend.
Gilligan's Island Luau

I bought the VIP tickets. I was hoping we'd have great seats. We did have great seats, but they were very crowded. Gilligan's is a bar & grill. The luau is in their patio. It's a nice setting, but crowded. The food was good, pulled pork, Teriyaki chicken, vegetables, rice and other traditional Hawaiian food. Drinks are included, but not very strong. The dancers were very good and put on a great show.
Fun Fun Fun

My wife and I arrived an hour early to get good seats , we were the first to arrive. We were given table 10 the last table to get food , they had ran out of fish and the pork was cold, our table was just getting food when the dancers began to dance , plus the waitress dumped a tray of drinks on my back ! Fun fun
Great Show and view

The entertainment was fabulous. It was nice being in a much smaller venue to see the luau.? Sunset view is a disappearing right into the water and was gorgeous. I recommend the VIP experience for good seats and private table. Service and drinks were good. food not so great.

Luau in Maui
Elizabeth_P, Mar 2023
Nice luau on a smaller scale and more intimate setting. It was rainy at start time which created a bit of congestion, but the rain passed and luau continued as planned!
The extra money for VIP is kinda worth it. You get a much better, private table and padded chairs up front and get to get in line for food first. The flower Lei promised with the VIP upcharge was a little disappointing, with mostly banana leaves and 4 flowers inserted, which is my only minor complaint.
The service was impeccable, friendly and quick. The buffet was yummy but needed labels on food, though servers were quick to explain what the dishes were. Drinks were typical luau drinks, often more juice than rum. Desert was yummy.
The show was incredible. Gorgeous dancers, interactive hula lessons and lots of fun!

Excellent orator/ presenter and talented dancers! Very impressed with their abilities—from singing to hula to fire dancing! Incredible. Highly recommend.

Had an amazing time here. Would definitely go back again. Wonderful experience, good food, unlimited drinks and great show
Stephanie_T, Mar 2023
Very unorganized event. This is a pub and grill with an outdoor area. I felt like I was walking in to a dirty bar. They did not tell us where to sit until most everyone was already seated, and then we had to move again. The drinks tasted like plain juice. I had 4 drinks and felt nothing at all. There was no ceremony for the pig. Instead the pork was highly shredded in water to keep it moist. The only food I enjoyed was the macadamia nut cookie. This was a lot cheaper than other luau’s and you get what you pay for!
