Great Evening at the Luau

We had a lovely evening at the Old Lahaina Luau. The food was delicious and the dancers were beautiful. We loved the story of Hawaii set to music and dance. Best of all was our server, Danno who made the evening so memorable and kept us happy all night.

Wonderful staff, beautiful site with a view over the ocean, tasty food, lovely drinks, and fantastic entertainment. Pulled pork, steak, fish, chicken all good. Do not miss it! Well worth the cost for drinks, food, and dancers. Be aware at any luau the coconut pudding (whitish squares given with dessert) are a natural laxative, so eat few of them. :)

You are greeted with a huge smile, a Mai Tai and a lei as soon as you arrive. This luau is not a typical hotel luau as it is it's own facility right on the ocean. Table and chair seating or pillows at a low table seating (traditional). You can see the pig being pulled out of the imu prior... More

Had an amazing time with my family. I took my three and six year old and we got to the location approximately 30 minutes before the show. I'm glad we did as parking seemed to fill up! We waited in line, which didn't take to long and were greeted with Mai Tai's for my wife and I and juice for... More

It was really hot the night we went. Food was good but wasn't a fan of the pork. The IMU show was nice and they make it fun. It's on the beach, drinks included. Glad we went.

Our family of 8 thoroughly enjoyed this luau. My parents had been to other luaus and said the food here was a step above. The locals we talked to told us that the Old Lahaina Luau is the most authentic of all the luaus in the area. From the real flower leis when you get there, the arts and crafts... More

My fourth trip to Hawaii and my first luau. It was a very nice evening. Our server was very nice and attentive and she shared information about growing up in Hawaii. I enjoyed the buffet style food but my husband and I both thought the pork was very average. We live in K.C. where BBQ pork is renowned. The drinks... More

My parents came to Maui for their 40th anniversary and so we had to make sure they saw a luau before leaving. Old Lahaina was well produced the last time we were here (about 2009) but the food was so-so then. Not the case any more - the food is very well made with great variety and the show is... More

This Luau has it all. Dancing, music, comedy and great food! This is exactly what we were looking for out of a Luau.
