Great show

This was a delightful event with wonderful food. It was easy to find with lots of parking nearby. The show was spectacular and so was the service.

We were disappointed and surprised to see how the Old Lahaina Luau has gone downhill. We were there last 12 years ago and yesterday's show was strangely pale in comparison. There were few dancers, nothing spectacular, and gone was the sunset canoe arrival. The show was short, and the crafts were tacky and expensive. Swarms of photographers are at the... More

Very nice, but very disappointed that they had no fire dancers. Food was delicious, but only one plate of dessert per table for 8 people. The luau we had been to before had a dessert buffet. Seating was excellent. Could see almost everywhere you would sit. Show was nice told the history of Hawaii. But again very disappointed no fire... More

Worth the price of admission. Before the show they let you walk around the grounds and have informative little sessions about things (how to make poi, clothing, pig roast, Hawaiian lawn games, etc). The food itself is very good and large variety. I saw some complaints about drinks, but if anything, ours were on the strong side (not complaining) and... More

The whole experience was great. Good exposure to age old Hawaiian culture. But at $400-500 for a family of 4, the food is a huge disappointment. If you're big on alcohol and can swipe down several cocktails in the 3 hour window, you can make it worthwhile. But other than that, it's way overpriced with sub-standard food. That being said,...

We had a table for 8 and since there were 4 of us we were sat with another group which was no problem at all. Drinks were quick to arrive and kept coming. Service was great. Food was just okay. We had much better food at other places on our stay but you're really there for the whole experience. There... More

The food was not that good and the drinks were weakie weakie and the show was mediocre. The highlight was our server Recie. This was our 9 or 10 Luau and I have to say unluckily it failed miserably. It was a family outing so we went against our better judgement. For $130 a person they could at least have... More

Went with my wife and two teenaged kids. The food was good. The drinks were free. The service was extremely friendly. And the show was informative and entertaining.
