If you are looking for the best of the best, then call Keneke for a full on Hawaiian affair! My daughter's wedding was perfect and much of that was due to Keneke (Kieth) and his wonderful staff of bartenders and helpers. We were delighted by the extra attention they gave to every detail. My daughter and daughter-in law picked Keneke from the very start of looking for a caterer and knew that would make the event what they were looking for! We had the wedding at LuLou Palm Estate, which is where they were referred to us from! They are wonderful in every way! I highly recommend them to people who are looking for the full-on Hawaiian experience. And did I say, the food was delicious. They even made us sliders for later in the evening and included spam sliders at my request. Thanks, Keith! They were amazing. YUM! The Jones family from Encinitas, CA

We were so happy that we chose Kenekes Grill & Farm as our Caterer. Their farm to table decadence of food is out of this world. As a company they exceeded every expectation that we had and it was the best food that my we had ever tasted. When we talk to guests that attended our reception all they seem to remember is how amazing the food was. Its hard to pin point my personal favorite because it was all very delicious. My husband loved the coconut shrimp and island stir fried noodles. We loved the farm to table freshness. We toured the chefs restaurant and saw where all our vegetables came from and loved the fresh local sustainable approach that Hawaiian Fresh Farms follows. And the set up and placements made for an even more elegant feel and look. We highly recommend Keneke's for all your catering needs. You are in good hands with their highly capable team.

We recently booked Keneke's for our small destination wedding on Waimanalo Beach from Australia and were absolutely blown away by their amazing food and professionalism. Without breaking the bank they provided traditional Hawaiian food, service and tableware. Keith was easy to deal with via email and phone and the girls who served were a credit to their team. All our guests raved about the food and we could have been happier, every dish was delicious!! What an amazing service!
Don't be put off by their cheap price, they are 100 percent quality!

Keith from Keneke's was awesome! He is very quick to respond to all inquiries, was flexible with our choices, and provided outstanding food and service.

The food was amazing! Nearly everyone--both from Hawaii and from out of town--commented that this was one of the best wedding meals they'd had. Couldn't have asked for more! It was an excellent price to quality ratio!

Service was smooth. His crew came and set everything up, including the dining ware and buffet. Very professional.

I cannot begin to express our gratitude to Keith and his staff for the fabulous food and service they provided for our daughter's wedding at Hei'e State Park. My husband and I loved every single thing on our plates, and how many times can you say that about wedding food? They wrapped the leftovers for us to take, and the next day, our dear friend put into their freezer a month of food into meal-sized bags for the newlyweds to come home to! Their service went far beyond what we expected (didn't hurt that the groom is a Marine and Keith has a family bond to the military). We wish he'd move to Wisconsin so he could cater our next daughter's wedding! Thanks again for everything, Keith!

AMAZING! That's how I would describe the food with Keneke's. Planning the wedding from California we didn't get a chance to do a tasting so I really relied on the recommendation of our "weddiing planner" along with the reviews I found on yelp, wedding wire and other wedding sites to help me pick my caterer. Keneke's did not disappoint! We selected the Wedding Special #1. The mashed purple sweet potato was SO ONO, and a hit with all of us. The coconut shrimp, guava chicken and kalua pig was so yummy too. OH, and everyone seemed to really like the prime rib. Our family is still talking about how great the food was...and how much there was!

The Keneke team was awesome too! From the table set-up to the serving....they were all friendly and professional. I believe Mark was our chef and Cara/Carmen (I'm drawing a blank on her name. Sorry!) was the lead for the team.

Mahalo for everything!

The catering team at Keneke's did an unbelievable job at our wedding! They were recommended by our wedding planner and we were not disappointed!

From the Tasting Menu to the preparation and execution of the buffet (they even cleaned up the venue grounds after everyone had left!), they provided top-notch service from top to bottom.

Our guests continuously told us throughout the night how good the food was and how friendly and accommodating the staff was. Some of our favorites were the Teriyaki Chicken Skewers and Coconut Shrimp passed appetizers, and the sweet potato mash was to die for! We were actually blessed with a few bags of leftovers, which we enjoyed over the next couple days.

The staff was friendly and attentive, and remained professional the entire night. We would recommend Keneke’s to any of our family or friends for any event, big or small!

Thank you again for everything! You helped to make our wedding absolutely perfect!

We had our destination wedding in the North Shore of Oahu, Loulu Palm Estate. We wanted to find catering with good local Hawaiian food at a reasonable price. After doing some research online, we found Keneke's. When we emailed our inquiries, Keith answered all our questions quickly and was very helpful . We choose Wedding Special #1, $39/person. He was flexible and let us change a few things from the wedding special menu. This package includes delivery, staff for onsite cooking, to hand pass appetizers, and help serve at the buffet. This package helped us save a lot of money w/ our party rentals since our package also included china, flatware, water goblets, stainless steel warmers. My coordinator mentioned they only charged 50% for kids & for vendors we fed.

On the wedding day, Keith and the entire staff were very helpful and provided great service. I loved how the servers made sure I had appetizers before and after running off to take pictures. They even set some aside & put on our table. More importantly, the food was delicious. For appetizers we had shoyu ahi poke, maki sushi, teriyaki beef, mochiko chicken, and grilled pineapple skewers. For dinner we had nalo green salad, mixed veggie medley, garlic prawns, garlic mash potatoes, hapa rice, hibachi chicken, kalua pig, and the prime rib carving station. Nothing but compliments from our guests, everybody loved the food. We didn't get enough time to sit and eat for long. They were kind enough to wrap our food to go and labled it "Mr. & Mrs". They also packed all of our leftovers for us.

If you're looking for catering with attentive service and delicious island-style food for a reasonable price, we definitely recommend Keneke's. Thanks again to Keith and his staff!! You guys are awesome!! We will stop by next time were on the island for sure.

Keneke's was AMAZING!! We planned our wedding from California so we weren't lucky enough to taste our food or meet the caterer ahead of time (scary!) but Keith was such a pleasure to work with. He's very laid back, friendly, flexible and very responsive. We didn't have to worry about anything on our big day. They handled everything with such professionalism and it looked great! The appetizers were served at the perfect time and dinner was delicious. They even prepared a box for us to take home at the end of the night! Our guests are still raving about the food and service. Thank you so much keneke's. We can't wait to come back and visit!!

Keneke's did an AMAZING job with our wedding dinner all the way from the buffet setup, to serving appetizers, refilling drinks, and serving our wedding cake! Keneke, himself, offered us a taste testing from his menu and while there are menu packages you can choose from, he helped us to create a menu based on our favorite items at no additional cost. Keneke's provided dinner plates, water glasses, and cake serving plates as well. His staff was extremely nice and very attentive to us and our guests. Even if you're not getting married, Keneke's is a wonderful place to have lunch and dinner! Thank you Keneke and your staff!!
