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 home

The Mai-Kai Catering Service is the catering division of one of the most unique dining and entertainment places in South Florida.

Fine dining at it's finest. Good food, great show and superb service. If lived even reasonable close, this would be a regular destination.

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!

A Unique Landmark!

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.
