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!

Keneke's did a great job for our wedding!! We had a destination wedding from Seattle WA, so wanted to have a local Hawaiian food for our reception. Keith helped us a lot for planning and the day of wedding. Food was amazing, the staff are all friendly and professional! The price is really reasonable too. We highly recommend Keneke's to everyone for their wedding!

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.

Keith and his team provided us with an amazing catering experience. I was nervous at first because there was not a whole lot of back and forth communication at first but his team truly delivered and exceeded our expectations. His team was professional and provided excellent service for our guests. The food was fresh and amazing and reflected our love of local and fresh food.

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.
