Extremely well run and accommodating. Was expecting a cattle call experience despite great recommendations because we've attended a few of these and it's an art and a science to handle so many people at once. The setting was perfect on the water, the staff couldn't have been any nicer, the food was delicious, the show was mesmerizing and when the... More

This was the worst experience ever!! The food was terrible and not even room temperature. It's after 7:00 now and the "show" hasn't even started. Save your money and spend it some place else.

We attended the Old Lahaina Luau for the 5th time. My husband and I went the first time we were in Maui in 2010 and have taken our friends and family as often as possibly. We enjoy the show and the food. Before the Luau starts, you can walk the grounds and learn a little bit of hula from the... More

Well organized and easy. Showed up, sat at the table, saw the unearthing of the pig, took pictures, saw some activities, went up to the buffet a number of times, watched a very traditional Hawaiian dances with story tell, LIFE IS GOOD!

Set right on the beach in Lahaina, this is one of our favorite luaus. The singers and dancers are awesome, telling the story of how the islands came to be and where the early voyagers came from. Great chronology and progression of the hula from the various South Pacific islands .

Before we went to Hawaii, I researched which was the best place to experience a traditional feast. The Old Lahaina was recommended my many. The display of dancing was excellent but I must say that we were disappointed with the food. The slow cooked pork was stringy. Some dishes were interesting (e.g. local potatoes) but others not. The self-serve line... More

The setting is beautiful (get there early) and the help is terrific. The drinks are phenomenal and the buffet quite good. We loved the show and story. My only criticism was where we were seated. Do not sit near a speaker. We could not hear anyone else at the table and it was quite uncomfortable

Lots of food, drinks upon arrival, entertainment from beginning to end. They told the story of Hawaii during the show which was really neat to learn the history. The food was awesome there was so much! Games and pictures before the actual show started! Nice people and workers, I would recommend sitting on the floor. You get to eat first... More

Queues queues queues. Disappointing food bit like an All you can eat buffet. Dance show was ok but it rained and for how much you pay you would expect to be under cover. Couldnt wait to leave

I have been to several Luaus, and this is the best Hawaiian one I have been to. Old Lahaina does not have that "cheesy" feel to it. It is located at place that is all they do is Luau, not like the hotel ones that put up the tables and stage the night before. I like the grounds where you... More
