Picked this up at the last minute and so glad we did. Great grounds to see, and the staff was great. Food was very very good and there was entertainment while we ate. Very well organized and very friendly. Show was outstanding and a lot of fun. Made great memories and would strongly suggest.

There are alot of people but they have it basically down to a science from the parking to the drinks and the food line there is never any waiting in line. The show was excellent and the food fantastic. Very interesting and... More

Highly recommend this Luau. It lasts about 4 hours which includes a garden tour, dinner, cocktails and a show. The buffet food was excellent. There is food for everyone including pork, fish, roasted vegetables & much more! The garden is beautiful and the show was very exciting.

Family run luau. Many attractions within the garden. Entertainment show was stupendous. Food was very yummy - try the poi with your pork. While in Hawaii do what the Hawaiians do. Mai Tais were also very good. The family has a long island history and the staff are happy working the luau which made it a wonderful experience.

We were advised that the Smith Family Garden Luau was the best on Kauai. What an understatement, it is the best in Hawaii! The food and entertainment was 1st class all the way! Everyone was extremely friendly and the after dinner show as amazing! If you an in Kauai, don't miss the Smith Family Garden Luau!

Had a wonderful luau with the Smith Family.. Staff, food and show are all wonderful! It is not your usual Luau by the beach, but it is in a beautiful garden by the Wailua river.

After a drive round the beautiful gardens we watched as the cooked pig was removed from the ground oven. After this we found seats at long tables and collected our first local drink made of rum and fruits. It was a buffet for the meal with local foods and it was really delicious. Then we walked to the seating area... More
