Go to Kona! We make it a point to go to the Polynesian Resort every trip and the Kona Cafe is a good excuse IMO.

I did not love it and it did not love me! Spent the evening sick . My 8 yo son ate very little. The views were incredible.

I didn't enjoy it at all. We were unlucky enough to get an indifferent server and that style of eating wasn't my thing.

Definitely not...we were there for breakfast once and after all cold food (that was supposed to be hot), even when we tried to replace it with 2nds we never had the desire to return. Dinner has always been hit or miss for us-last time we went it was good but so was our server. For some reason seems that the service at this restaurant has a major impact on the food quality? Sounds strange but seems consistent regarding this factor whenever we've been there.

We loved it 11 years ago. Went back a few times since, but stopped going altogether about five years ago. The food and service definitely took a hit from the "good ole days." Oh well.

'Ohana is consistently inconsistent. It's as if they alternate chefs & servers between those who would be at home in a top quality restaurant with a crew who couldn't get a Taco Bell order together. Seriously, there ought to be a study to see just how they accomplish this because it couldn't be more uneven if they tried.

Look at the opinions of those who posted in this thread. There has been a similar thread approximately every 31 hours for 10 years. It is alternately "The best meal of our trip" and "Over cooked food" Served "too fast /too slow."

'Ohana is for gamblers, risk-takers, people who live life on the edge. Your luck with 'Ohana lies with the roll of the coconut.

Most Definitely!

Considering our last ADR was running 100 minutes behind and we exited Ohana's at 11pm with the dining rooms still 50% full....I'd say you are in the minority

And there's the reason the inconsistency will never be addressed. They can still fill the place, even when they are lousy, with diners hoping for one of those elusive "fabulous" meals they keep hearing about.

My family really enjoyed it. I think I liked it the least of our entire party of six. I liked the apps a lot but the meat was just fair. The chicken I ate was not evenly cooked, some parts burnt. I am allergic to shrimp and all the adults in the party went nuts for it.

Hilarious with a definite element of truth.

If you are talking about 'Ohana breakfast, we love it and we go on every trip. It is our favourite character breakfast.

We tried 'Ohana for dinner a few years ago, and we will probably never go back. It wasn't bad, it just didn't really enjoy it.

I've been three times in past 7 years & it goes downhill more & more each time. I mainly go back for the dessert but now I can make it at home so we skip O'hanas

I finally ate at 'Ohana last November. It was ok, but definitely not worth the hype. I preferred the sides to the meat for sure. But the fuss to get the ADR, the wait in the overcrowded lobby where some rude person actually sat on my DD's jacket when she got up for a minute, and the just ok food - way overrated IMO.

But I don't love meat by itself, so it isn't much of a surprise that I was nonplussed by the experience. My DD thought the unlimited meat on a stick was fun, but its unlikely I will go back there. I was looking forward to the shrimp, and it wasn't very good. Beef undercooked for my taste and pork was very dry. Chicken was ok. I ate a lot of broccoli and noodles LOL.
