Old Hawaii still lives at the Luau! It is an adventure that is a "must do" on Maui. Great food, excellent staff, superb show with the culture of Hawaii.

Other than the great service at your table, I rate the food as poor to average. The pulled pork was full of gristle and the chicken was overcooked to toughness. The show was slow moving and didnt include a traditional fire dance. For the money, find another

This was our first luau, and we loved everything about it! The service was awesome. We enjoyed the unlimited drinks. There was a large variety of food, and everything we tried was delicious. The show was very entertaining. Attending this luau will be a night you will always remember!

After much research, all the guidebooks and feedback suggested that this was the best traditional style Luau. It is worth noting that many of the others are probably excellent, but often they are not on the beach, this is and the sunset was impressive.

Firstly, it's out of the way when you enter the dinner area, but don't miss the uncovering of the pigs they have cooked in the ground. The food was great. At first the smorgasbord style layout seemed questionable, but all the different types of food were very tasty, and a full plate was more than an adult could eat. Of special note were the excellent staff who were very attentive and familial.
Last but not least, as we hoped, the show was outstanding. Both the background story and the individual dancers were of the highest quality and they seemed to genuinely be enjoying themselves. The show really was worth the $ on it's own.

It's also worth noting that many of the photos suggest that the luau is quite small and we thought that there would probably be 50 or so people there. It is however quite large and with all the different levels of seating etc, probably 500 people are at the luau. However, it is to their credit that it still seems friendly and worth the considerable costs.

The Old lahaina Luaua is supposed to be the best laua on Maui, hands own. I was not impressed. Maybe I was expecting something different but the whole process is long, drawn out and boring. The laua itself was nto what I expected, although I do realize this is the "authentic" laua on the island. No colorful costumes, music was slow, it was just not that good for $95.00. The food was terrible and drinks were just ok. When the audience was asked how many people enjoyed the food only 3 people raised their hands........ I would recommend a luau at a hotel if you are looking for more upbeat, colorful costumes and fire dancing.
