We have been to Maui three times and have seen this excellent Luau all three times. The show is way too great for words. Each seat offers a great view of the show. They offer servers who will definitely make your stay more enjoyable. The food is great, with many varieties to choose from. The bar is an OPEN BAR.... More

This luau was most definitely a learning experience; for one be more wary of large luaus geared toward tourists but understandably it is hard to just join a real traditional luau. But due to the large amount of people the food is cafeteria quality food push out as quickly as possible to give people enough time to get some food... More

We had a great evening. Glad we chose to sit at the table instead of the ground. They treat you very well from the moment you walk in. The server never left us wanting anything. We were a little early so we went next door for $3.50 Mai Tai's.

We walked around the grounds enjoying drinks and the scenery, especially the rebirthing of the pig, seeing it unearthed was spectacular. Local crafts are featured and plenty of photographers on hand to capture memories. You're free to wander around until mealtime when you are seated to begin dinner. It's very well coordinated, the food is delicious, service was outstanding (Noah... More

The Old Lahaina Luau is a Must Do at least once in your lifetime. It is not cheap, but it is worth every penny. The feast that they presented us was great. From the beginning when you walk in the door and are handed your first Mai Tai, to the uncovering of the pig, the artisan displays and fun hulu... More

From the moment you pull up to the Old Lahaina Luau, you know its going to be a great experience. Yes, the lines were long to enter as we got there plenty early. We were immediately given wonderfully scented flowers to place w/in our hair while also being offered Mai Tais, fruit punch or another beverage. Go w/the Mai Tai... More

Check in could have been a bit more thought thru seeing how many times they do a show. Food was good, but I guess I was expecting more given the cost. The show was good, I enjoyed the history via story telling and dance. Unlimited drinks is nice, service was very good.

Everyone at the luau from the people meeting us at the door, the servers and bartenders, and the people performing really seemed to care about what they were doing and worked hard to provide a great experience. Food was good, setting is good overlooking the beach and the atmosphere was great. Great value for money.

First off, they passed out ponchos, so it was not that bad. They were prepared - rain or shine. As typical luau food this was top notch in flavor. Our host/waiter/attendant Kala was there to fill up another drink, change out the plates, special requests - steamed rice. He made it a special night for all ten of us, Mahalo... More

We chose this luau as it was advertised as traditional and focusing on Hawaiian traditions instead of showy extras. The food was good but nothing spectacular. It was nice that the show occurred after dinner for the mist part so you could really sit back and enjoy Very attentive servers - Joe was great!
