Although it is expensive, I think its a great experience. You get placed at a table of eight and upon arriving you get a lei and a drink and have some time to watch the subset, watch demonstrations, take pictures. There was plenty of food and good variety of Hawaii speciality. The dancers and entertainment was fantastic and well worth... More

While visiting Maui for 6 weeks this year we went to 2 different luaus; the Old Lahaina Luau and the Royal Lahaina Luau. Both were great and had interesting differences. I'll compare the 2 so you can decide what's worth your $$. 1) Food - both were the same great food. Nothing stood out between them. 2) Drinks - both... More

When on Maui, and wanting to go to a Luau, this is the only choice. Most all of the other offers are on hotel properties and are very much run of the mill, not necessarily Hawaiian in style (esp the show) and, well hello you're at a hotel/resort so you should know what that means.. O L L, as it... More

I really screwed up. This Luau was recommended to me well in advance by multiple people so I booked it at least a month in advance. When we got to Maui, I thought our luau was on Monday. But when I went to pull out the printed reservation sheet on Monday, it said our show was supposed to be on... More

We are so glad we choose the Old Lahaina Luau instead of other options in the area. To begin with the people are fantatic and you get the full feeling of what Aloha really means. From the people who checked us in to our server, they were wonderful! We even got actual orchid leis and little flowers to put behind... More

We loved the show and the dancers were great. We did sit front row and that was a plus. Food was very mediocre. Everything was super super salty. I mostly ate salad. The lei when you want in are a nice touch! This was my first luau and I would say here you are going more for the show.

I was poring over the different luaus covered in TripAdvisor and this was an evident favourite. Each ticket is 100 bucks and as I walked along Front Street, apparently you could visit some for 30 bucks? I knew I wanted to take my parents to a luau and experience one for myself. The options offered on the cruiseship were 115+... More

Overall, it was a pleasant evening. The atmosphere is great, the view is beautiful and the show was pretty, but kinda low key. No fire torches : ( I learned later that is not traditional Hawaiian. Our server was polite but inefficient. He forgot many drink orders.

This luau was very enjoyable. We received beautiful orchid leis upon arrival. They had a great variety of very tasty drinks and the food was delicious. The luau was nicely done and we had great seats in the table/chairs area.

I think my husband and I will revisit this luah again in the future. It was beautiful. My husband was unsure about spending so much money but it became the highlight of his trip! The food selection was small but EVERYTHING was delicious and that mattered most to me. The performance was jaw dropping. These performers seem like real trained... More
