From the time you get out of your car to the time you leave they wallop you over the head every which way regarding money. If they could charge for oxygen I’m sure they would. Yes there’s a show and food but for the prices...More
My first visit here was 38 years ago and this was my first return visit. This place did not fail to make the evening as enjoyable as it had all those years ago.
The cocktail list is extensive and a very good way to start...More
Went there Saturday night for the 10:30 show, the bar area was crowded but manageable. Food was so so, but really no one goes for the food. The show was amazing, my 2 boys (11&17) had a great time. Try to get a front row...More
We came to Fort Lauderdale for the tiki convention "Hukilau" and one of the nights we all went to the dinner show at the Mai Kai. It was incredible. The polynesian food was outstanding. The show was great and the service and drinks were top...More

This restaurant is overrated. If you coming for show it’s okay. Will give you the taste of Polynesia if you didn’t have chance to visit it. We couldn’t hear lady from the stage. Acoustic is terrible. Dancers are very good and it is the only...More
Very poor quality of food and staff could be more friendly. You get much better food and service in other places in Fort Lauderdale. The show is amazing (if you are lucky to get a table from which you can see something)!
Somehow the Mai-Kai keeps the nostalgic flavor of the 50's-60's without being cheesy. You can, if you wish, get the parasols and skewered hangover inducing rum drinks. Just don't have too many because all that sugar will make you sorry in the morning (unless you're...More

Hi, I would suggest making reservation for dinner at 6 or 6.30 pm, the show starts at 8 pm. I would also take advantage of our Happy Hour in the Molokai lounge prior to getting seated for the show. The Molokai lounge opens at 5 pm. Hoping to see you at Mai-Kai in October.
