This is the 3rd time seeing the Hale Koa Luau but I have not been in about 5 years. I think it use to be just for military but seems they opened it up to all. It is average and the food is fair. They...More

I can’t gush enough over how great the performers are! They put on such an engaging show, but not only that! They’ve taken the time to learn the traditions from not just their own, but similar cultures so that they can display them for others...More

Traditional Hawaiian events start the evening, followed by a music and a tree climbing demonstration, pig roasting, and then on to the feast. A good sampling of local specialties served family style, coupled with more Hawaiian dancing and singing. Overall a very enjoyable experience.

THIS IS NOT FOR ALL PAST MILITARY! we called ahead. My husband was honorably discharged from the navy. Has proper ID and a VA card. We were only allowed to attend if he had a disability ranking of 100%!

The food was good, although it was not buffet style like I was expecting. They brought the plates out to each person, and you could not get seconds. Entertainment was wonderful

If you go to PCC, you will have already experienced some of what any luau has to offer. I bought our tickets months in advance, we got the front of the table and covered seating in case of rain. It was just my husband and...More
