AAA Inspector Notes
Classic Historic. This landmark restaurant has been amazing patrons for generations since opening their doors in 1956. The exotic atmosphere really spices things up with an extensive array of dishes inspired by such Polynesian islands as Tahiti, Samoa and Hawaii as well as Asian-inspired dishes using curry and teriyaki sauces. The well-performed Polynesian dance review and cultural show, for an extra charge, leaves guests captivated with their elaborate customs, infectious rhythms and gyrations. This is special event dining at its best. Order one of the myriad of incredible libations, some are served in souvenir glasses, coconut shells or even in hollowed out whole pineapples. Some of the desserts are finished off tableside and theatrically flambéed. Be sure to walk around the extensive gardens where authentic Polynesian artifacts are displayed as well as bridges and water features that provide great photo opportunities. A trip to Polynesia would not be complete without stopping by the gift shop to pick up a souvenir, a memento from your adventurous journey, even if it was just for the night.
