Our wedding was laid back and beachy, and we wanted traditional Hawaiian food. Keneke’s was a PERFECT fit for us (and our budget). We selected one of their wedding buffet menus and also added on some additional choices (like the blackened Ahi Tuna, which was AMAZING!) The staff was so nice to everyone, and they were very aware of the bridal party. For instance, when my partner and I went off at sunset to take photos in the middle of dinner, we returned to covered dinner plates and a server asking if we wanted fresher food or if there was anything else that they could do for us.

Keneke’s will definitely provide your guest with the utmost respect while delivering an excellent luau feast! Following the meal, the staff packed up all the leftover food for us to take home and enjoy throughout or week stay in Hawaii. Other recommendations for the excellent appetizers and meal choices they provided include spicy chicken skewers, maki sushi, kalua pig, and mashed island purple sweet potatoes. The also offer traditional poke which we regret not getting as poke is now are favourite cultural dish after visiting Hawaii!

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!!

Keith and his team create a local yet quality experience. His laid back, island attitude was, at first, worrisome since I tend to be a bit of a control freak but when I learned to let go and trust that everything was going to be fine my wedding turned out fantastic! We tried the food at his restaurant which is why we selected him as our caterer. His plate lunches are ono and the food at our wedding was especially ono! We had quite a few guests travel from the mainland to our wedding so we wanted them to experience a good buffet, luau and local style. The pupus during cocktail hour were passed around consistently and the bartender served drinks all night. The servers at dinner were friendly, courteous and prompt. Keith cooked and served the food barefoot, as any local would do. We loved his style! He was friendly, professional, and our guests loved him and his food. We, especially, had wonderful comments on his shrimp and sweet potatoes, and enjoyed eating leftovers the next day. Next time we're in Hawaii we will definitely stop by his restaurant to eat his great tasting food.

Keneke's put on an amazing spread for our wedding in March. Keith, the manager, was helpful leading up to the event, let us know what would taste good together. We paid a total of $39 per person and that included passed pupus for the cocktail hour, mango chicken skewers, breaded fan tail shrimp, roasted veggies and a few other appetizers. It also included all the set up, place settings including, plates, salad plates, knives, forks, wine and water glasses. The food we chose was fillet mignon, mahi mahi and a full roasted pig (served on a wheeled out silver cart, big crowd pleaser). We had kale and sesame salad, nalo greens salad with papaya dressing, grilled asparagus and taro buns. The food was tasty and plentiful! I'd received quotes from other caterers for $6000-$8000 for the same or similar catering, so to find Keneke's and pay under $2000 was phenomenal. They were professionally dressed, all in black with aprons and Keith himself was there to oversee everything. Food is such an important part of your wedding day, and all of my guests and my husband and I were completely happy :)

For a vendor thats a little less "professional" when it comes to contracts, they have amazing food!!!!!!! They have a great staff and provide glassware and dinnerware and the food is grilled on site. The main chef even came around and asked how the food was. The mango chicken was amazing as well as the nalo green salad with the papaya seed dressing. great for those looking to serve a smaller party save a buck but still have amazing tasting food.

Keith is very laid back cool guy so our deposit was hand written on a piece of paper he tore off of a menu choices. We stayed at his Punaluu location after we tried the food just talking story with him and got a tour of his on site wedding venue. The food was good except for the shrimp...-_-...it was mushy. So, I don't suggest the shrimp with pineapple citrus topping.

Keith of Keneke's provided us with the best local food for our wedding. Everyone loved the Kalua pig and sweet potato mash. Everything tasted great. Keith was very helpful and gave us good tips on how much food and what types of dishes would go well with our menu. I highly recommend Keneke's to do your catering.

Keith was such a pleasure to work with!! He was so on top of his game, and the food was AMAZING!!! The buffet looked great, and it always looked fresh and full of such delicious food! My guests were going on about how yummy everything was! And Keneke's don't try to nickle and dime you, or rip you off in ANY way!!! They were so helpful, provided the silverware and dishes with the buffet, and they included staff in the price, what an amazing deal for all that really great food!! I will be recommending Keneke's to EVERYONE I know!!!!
Mahalo for helping make my special day perfect!!!!

Keneke's was fantastic! We worked with Keith there and he provided exactly what we were looking for in an authentic Hawaiian Luau! We had a whole pig, kalua pig, teriyaki chicken, Mahi Mahi and plenty of other tasty dishes and pupus at an incredible value!! Keith and his staff were very professional and friendly and really made our wedding truly unforgettable! Our main goal for our wedding was to have really good food and great atmosphere and Keneke's provided both! I am still getting compliments on how wonderful everything tasted and looked! I recommend Keneke's 100%

Keneke's food was so ONO! Keith did a great job at our wedding, and the price is unbeatable. I highly recommend Keneke's for local food. My family, all kama'aina, loved the food. My husband's family, all from the east coast, also loved the food. Can't believe we pleased everyone. All the staff was also super friendly and everyone had a great time.
