We really enjoyed our evening at the luau. The only complaint was the drinks. I'm not sure there was any alcohol in them. The food was buffet and offered a wide variety of local foods. The sunset was beautiful and the entertainment was wonderful. I only give it a 4 because it was very crowded. I wish it could have... More

I have been to a couple luaus, and I must say that this one seemed to be the most authentic out of all of them. I'm not saying that they all aren't in their own way, but this one seemed the most authentic. The story line of Hawaiian history was awesome. Great food and free drinks!!!

Old Lahaina Luau is awesome. The entire experience is wonderful. This was our first laua and I am so glad we picked this one. You are welcomed with a lei and a drink. You can walk around the grounds and have photos taken while waiting for dinner. Our waiter Kypo was so friendly and made sure we had drinks the... More

This was the second time we enjoyed the Old Lahaina Luau. Reservations are easy to make online. Limited parking is available on the Luau grounds, so arrive early. You can also choose to shop and park at the Cannery Mall just across the street. Check in was easy and well organized. All of the staff we encountered were extremely friendly.... More

Very good show, food was outstanding. Waiter was very good. We were greeted with a real lei, shown where our seating was and was allowed to wander around the grounds where we could have our pictures taken, watch craftsmen working, dance lessons , listen to music, and view the pit where the pig was cooking. The show was just about... More

My husband and I attended the luau this evening and enjoyed the experience. The food was good (not fabulous) but the entertainment was great. We had mat seating front and center. We loved the location of these seats as we had great views of the show. Overall, it was a fun night and unique experience.

This is exactly what a luau should be like! Endless food, open bar, incredible service, amazing dancers... you can't come to Maui and not experience this! A beautiful telling of their history through song, dance, show, and food!
