We really enjoyed the slack key show. The musicians were very talented. The music was great and the stories were enjoyable too. I think it was a more authentic Hawaiian experience than going to a luau (we've been to many). We will go to this...More

We were so surprised at how much we enjoyed this show. The music and dancing were so much fun. We especially liked the 2nd half of the show, when the young guys joined the older musicians and "jammed"!

No, it does not include drinks and tip; however, the food is excellent and the view is off the chart.

I don't recommend including dinner at Sea House. We did and were very disappointed. You get a salad, entre and dessert. It's very over priced. The shrimp scampi was 4 shrimp with pasta, drowned in butter. It had no flavor.

We called ahead to reserve a seat. Tickets were available at the door. We went early after dinner & sat on the front row. This was a fantastic night. Don't miss it, whatever you have to do. Just go. Incredible show.
