We enjoyed the all you care to enjoy drinks. The themes were fun! The food was great in terms of the selection they offered. The show was entertaining but a little short. We also wish there was more variety, like fire dancers and a drum feature. The pig did not look like a pig, so that was kind of anti-climactic. Lava flow was my favorite drink. The parking lot was small, so we had to park at the nearby mall and walk over.

Old Lahaina Luau was organized from beginning to end. Before the show we were able to walk around to games and vendors.
What I found the most interesting was the way the whole Hawaiian story/history was told.
My twelve year old and fourteen year old sons even enjoyed it.
The food was just ok, but service was excellent.

My husband and I went to the Old Lahaina Luau toward the end of our honeymoon and had a wonderful evening. It was my third time and his first time to this luau. The food is always great and we loved the hands on cultural activities before dinner too. We enjoyed dancing under the stars as they called all of the couples to the front to celebrate all of the happy marriages and relationships. The dinner show is fantastic and easily one of the most authentic, entertaining and well-executed performances exploring the history of Hawaii and various Hawaiian dances and chants. We had a great time sitting at our table chatting with the other guests and will definitely be back next time we are in Hawaii!

We have been to many luaus over the years, and this is one of the best! It is very authentic, and the setting on the beach is beautiful. Pros and cons:

Excellent and authentic food and drinks. Excellent service from all the staff. The stage is round and centered in the middle of all of the people, which gives everyone an opportunity to enjoy the show. The dancers are truly professional, and the show is authentic. From the moment you arrive, you are greeted with a lei and drinks. The staff greets you with smiles and Hawaiian hospitality. You are seated at your table, which has been assigned to you according to when you made your reservations. This is a plus for those who book 6 months in advance, but a negative for those of us who book later. Musicians are playing from the moment they open their doors. Once you have been seated at your table, you are free to roam the grounds and experience various Polynesian activities. The views of the sunset are truly a highlight of any Maui trip, and these views were top notch. It is a photographers paradise. Everything about this luau was top notch. Five-star experience! I do, however, suggest that you book 4 to 6 months in advance in order to see the show from a good vantage point. Everyone is seated according to when they put on their reservation. We booked late, so our seats were not advantageous. We were not able to enjoy the show to the full extent, which was disappointing.

This is one of the greatest things to see while in Hawaii. The dancers are great . I think they should interact with the audience more though. For the price it can't be beat. Great food and drink galore. A must see.
