As soon as you walk through the gates of the Old Lahaina Luau and they put a lei around your neck and a drink in your hand you think: This is exactly what I thought Hawaii would be. The grounds are right on the water and the scenery is picturesque with the boats out on the water and palm trees blowing in the wind and the sun setting behind them. The food was a lot better than expected. It is buffet style with many options; however, it was very organized. The service was great as well: Very entertaining and funny too! The show is very well done and traditional. There are no knife throwers or fire breathers because that is not Hawaiian. They do a very nice job and it definitely did not seem like a mass produced show as some Luaus can be. A great experience, after all when you are in Hawaii you have to do a luau!
