Mai-Kai Restaurant

The Enchantment of the Mai-Kai - The Mai-Kai was voted the area’s Best Unique Dining Experience for many fine reasons – just simply because it’s the best. The Polynesian restaurant features many signature dishes as well as traditional fare. Guests may dine while enjoying the nation's longest running Polynesian dance revue, or in a quiet room overlooking the tropical gardens and waterfalls.
A community landmark - In 1956 the 4-room restaurant with a small bar and remarkable peaked thatched roof, stood alone on the outskirts of Fort Lauderdale drawing guests from near and far. Guests drove over the wood planked bridge and entered a distant world of enchantment. Several additions later and a complete renovation completed in Spring 2009, the restaurant now boasts eight dining rooms seating 489, a 150-person capacity bar/lounge, a gift shop, meeting/banquet facilities and a tropical garden through which guests may stroll and/or dine.
