Very professional, but entertaining! Get there a bit early to enjoy some hands on instruction in how to craft plumerias into hair adornments, leis, etc. Make reservations early(a week in advance, if possible) as the seats go quickly.
Really enjoyed the evening...a casual, elegant, informative fun evening!!!
Well worth the money spent!!!

The luau is a fun experience that everyone should do at least once while in Hawaii. The location of the Old Lahaina Luau is great and the grounds are very scenic. It is a little pricey for what you get, but still fun none the less. The food is mediocre, but the pork was delicious. You have a great selection of cocktails and beer that are included in the price. The entertainment is good, but not overly exciting. The service was also really good.

We wanted to go to a Lua during a recent vacation on Maui. We read the reviews and decided to go to the Old Lahaina Lua based on Trip Advisor positives. We called last minute and were put on a waiting list. We got called back an hour later with a reservation. While the cost was a bit high at $100 each, it did include all beverages, including drinks, a very good dinner and a very well produced stage show. At the end of the evening, we were quite satisfied. Everything is a bit expensive in Hawaii.

After spending a week in Kapalua, we went to Honolulu and stayed at the Hilton and was able to look down from our balconey on the Lua they had. From our vantage, there was no comparison between the OLL and the Hilton Lua. The location was far nicer and the production appeared better. We could not taste the food, but two of the couples we sat with at the OLL had gone to several and they all agreed that it was the best one.

The OLL does appear to sell out most evenings and cater to bus loads. They have a well oiled and professional operation and know what they are doing with the customer. Very positive.
