Tacky fake greenery stage & setting; meh performance that lacked passion and shameless up selling left and right. We did the math and they make $30g a night for absolute mediocracy. Look elsewhere for a luau

Don't waste your money! Been to Luai's and this had to be the worst. Sorry but it is true. Hostess, announcer, MC, whatever you call her, was talking like she was reading a script. This was tourist trap to the MAX.

It is close to the beach but you can not see the water when you sit at the tables. It is all open air but there is a hedge around the venue.
