Mai-Kai Restaurant and Polynesian Show
3599 N Federal Hwy, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308
Since 1956, we have captivated people with our warmth and magical aura. The Mai-Kai authentically recreates a Polynesian Village, complete with tiki torches, a thatch roof, tropical gardens, waterfalls and museum quality artifacts. The exciting Islander Revue is performed nightly by native Polynesian dancers in colorful hand sewn costumes. The Hawaiian wedding dance will seduce you, and the Samoan Fire and Knife dance will leave you speechless. The Revue is a favorite of all ages.
The award winning cuisine includes American and Cantonese dishes, many prepared in our Chinese Ovens, and each dining room reflects a different Island of Polynesia.
The Molokai Bar is a South Seas saloon with over 51 tropical drinks and live music nightly. "Home of the Mystery Drink" served by our sarong-clad maiden, with an orchid lei. Try our House Specialties - Mai-Tai and Barrel o'Rum. Happy Hour nightly 5 - 7 pm.
Our Mai-Kai trading post and gift shop will give you a chance to bring home your favorite memories of the Mai-Kai. From Hawaiian shirts and hats to Polynesian Jewelry, everyone is sure to find something to bring homeThe Mai-Kai Catering Service is the catering division of one of the most unique dining and entertainment places in South Florida.

With my search to find romantic hotspot with live entertainment, I stumbled upon this restaurant. From the reservations to the end of the meal the service is great, as I enjoy my wood smoked prime rib with succulent juices dripping from my lips, I enjoy the live music and hula dancers with an array of colorful skimpy clothing. From fire dancers that defy death and sweet tastes of mai tai drinks. This is one place worth exploring!

Decided to celebrate my mom's 50th bday here. We called to make a reservation for 10 and there was no problem. Once we arrived there and tried to park we were charged with a 5$ parking fee which they never explained over the phone. Second it was happy hour at the bar. I went to order a drink in the bar for faster service and so I could receive the half price. Once my friend and I were in the bar a worker came up and hounded us about ordering a drink and then returning to the dining area. Food was ok, I asked if i could share a meal with someone and the girl told us they were way to big entrees to share. We shared anyway and it was plenty. Then we brought our own cake and they charged us a cake cutting fee. This place was good but definitely not worth the money.
There is no other place like this on the eastern seaboard. From the luscious waitresses in the Molokai bar to the cuisine, to the 75 exotic cocktail menu, the five hundred miles or so that separate me from the Mai-Kai is probably the only thing preventing full-on alcoholism.

Everything about this place screams Vanishing Americana. Go, right now, before one more pre-Disney landmark disappears forever. Polynesian floor show, seventy-five entrees, fifty exotic drinks, vintage Tiki decor...it's all here, and you don't have to fly to the Bahamas to escape!

They seated us quickly, The staff was amazing never leaving you wanting for any thing! I had the lemon chicken it was so good. The drinks are tropical and also amazing. The show leaves you wanting more. when you step in the front door you leave Floirda and enter the big island. I loves the Mia Kai I will do again !

This is definitly the worst food i have eaten. If i were to compare the quality of the food to the price, someone owes me money. $7.50 for an egg roll. The drinks are good, but i ordered two different drinks one at the bar ond one in the resturant and they brought me the same drink with two different names and dollar amounts. The only reason I didnt complain was that they were good. wouldnt go again.

When I say the food was bad I meant I ordered the teriyaki chicken and spent most of the night in the bathroom. Its not because of the spice either (i'm latin I love spices) something was horribly bad with the chicken. My little sister had ordered the same dish and she is sick as well...
The show was cool tho....
