A visit to the Hawaiian Islands isn't complete without attending a luau, a traditional feast with entertainment.  There are many offered on all the islands, but two stand out on the Island of Maui. 

The Feast at Lele features five different courses, each from a different culture including Samoan and Tahitian.  A big plus is that patrons can sit at their own table for two if they wish.

Another recommendation is the Old Lahaina Luau; many consider it the best on the island. It features the imu ceremony (digging up the roasted pig) and a craft area to visit before dinner.  It's a buffet type meal so visitors can either sit on the ground or on long tables with lots of other people.  The luau takes place in its own separate village by the ocean, with arts and crafts, places to take professional photos, a large stage, etc. Another reason people seem to like OLL is that the “servers” (or waitstaff) take care of every need…and without been obtrusive about it.
