We arrived early with our two teens and were actually the first ones allowed in. Leis and drinks are offered AS you walk in and you are escorted to your table. We were seated with another family of four, also having two teens. You are able to roam prior to the show to see a demonstration of someone pounding taro... More

Very, very enjoyable time! Excellent venue / grounds / seating / food / service. Many interesting / interactive things happening before dinner, then a wonderful performance! You may want to get there early - one fairly small main parking lot that fills quickly, overflow lot is across the street - short walk with police officer street crossing. We got there... More

The food was good, and the dancing was nice to see the different types. There was lots of time between dances and courses of food. This is a good thing to do with groups, since you will then have time to talk and catch up between the events.

We have gone to other Luaus in the Lahaina area over the years, but this is by far our favorite. The food was delicious. The staff was super friendly and attentive. The dancing and the music was wonderful. We had a great evening!

Beautiful setting, great food and drink and an absolutely stunning show. This is the traditional old Hawaiian show that tells the history of the settlement of Maui. All of the staff were polite and prompt. The dancers were amazing! Don't let the time frame discourage you from going - 3 hours goes by quickly - that includes eating, drinking and... More

I have been to the Old Lahaina Luau 3 times over the past 5 years and each time the experience has been great. Wonderful food, fantastic show and in the perfect setting. I have recommended this show to others and they have said they had the same experience I did. It is definitely worth it.

Lots of interesting reviews on the Old Lahaina Luau. Most of the negative ones say the show is boring and the food is terrible. Then you have your large percentage of positive reviews. We attended this event 9 years ago and felt it was good enough for a second sojourn. Here's my take on the OLL. 1. It is expensive... More

Picked this luau, like many others, because of it's authenticity. The location was gorgeous - I could go on and on about the grounds alone and we spent the first 30 min or so walking around and taking family photos at various spots (only problem was the sun low in the sky but not quite low enough). This setting and... More

For $100 per person you get all you can eat Hawaiian style along with an all you can drink open bar. Couple that with beautiful Hawaiian dancers and you have an unforgettable experience. The servers are great too but do not forget to tip them because that is not included in the $100 per person tab. I can see why... More
