“Good show and food”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

The pre show was fab lots of interaction with other guests and the dancers, staff. The food was super and the show was fabulous. No complaints from us. We did the traditional seating and it was't so bad for us 50+er's.

“Good food, poor view of the show”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

We booked this luau well in advance, we decided that this would be the only one we would book on this trip. The food was great but when it came to watch the imu ceremony it was impossible, there was no way that all the guests could see it.
The buffet line was organized and service from our server was fine. However, when it came to watching the show, both my boyfriend and I completely missed it. The table we were seated at had such an awkward placement that we couldn't see anything. The people next to us had to also move their chairs or stand up. It was just very poorly designed. I wouldn't recommend it as it is a game of chance and I definitely wouldn't go again.

“Fun experience!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

My brother and sister-in-law got married here before they opened, then had their 'reception' at the luau. The set-up for a wedding was fantastic, even though the ending was bit rushed since they were opening soon. But we did start a little late. The buffet was good, I can't say it was out of this world but decent traditional fare served obviously buffet style. The service was fantastic, everyone was friendly and very helpful. The luau was entertaining and very informative. Each segment had different stories that went along with the dances. All in all it was great time and a memorable Hawaiian experience!

“The Best Luau Ever”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

My husband & I have been to many luaus and we both thought this one was the best. Location is beautiful, next to ocean in Lahaina. The grounds are spacious with plenty of room to wander thru the pre show exhibits. The food and drinks were delicious. The show was fantastic. The staff were very welcoming, funny and attentive. This luau made for a memorable night for our family. All 6 in our family loved it. Highly recommend.

“The Best Luau”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Have been to several Luaus over the years and the Old Lahaina Luau is the best. If you don't mind sitting on pillows with your legs crossed for dinner and the show the traditional seating is great. Our 5 year old grand daughter loved being up close but if you have back or knee problems go for the regular table seating. The food and drink quality is very good for this type of venue. Staff was very friendly and helpful. All luaus are overpriced but for a special treat it's worth it.
