The venue couldn't be surpassed; looking out over the beautiful ocean. Good pre-luau activities. Worst luau food ever which couldn't balance out the good parts of the luau. Program mc was clever but then became tedious. Won't be recommending this one!!!!!! Huge waste of money.

It is a buffet, plenty of fruit, meats, rolls, and I believe a couple of salads and cake for dessert
