Step back in time with the Hawaiian people at a Maui luau. Share an experience of our ancient culture with a setting, feast, and performance that has made the Old Lahaina Luau so famous.

The Old Lahaina Luau is an adventure into the past and a perfect end to a perfect day. This is the only Maui luau that offers a real fresh flower orchid lei upon arrival and a program with your name on it. This is also one of the few luaus in Maui that reserves your seats at the time of your reservation. The further in advance, the better the seats. The Old Lahaina Luau seats from the inside out beginning with the first row of tables and chairs. The seating is quaint with tables for eight. The Old Lahaina Luau includes tableside service to their guests. There are two different styles of seating, traditional style; mats and cushions right in front of the stage, and regular table and chairs. The luau grounds are tiered up every row providing a clear sight of the stage. With the top row being only 40 feet or so from the grass knoll stage, every seat has a spectacular view.

The Old Lahaina Luau is known for its gourmet Hawaiian buffet that serves high-end restaurant-quality dishes. The lovely staff will shower you with Aloha and the fresh island drinks will have you feeling fine. These are just a few reasons you’ll want to reserve these seats well in advance as advanced reservations are required well before you arrive at Maui, and last-minute bookings rarely work out.

He definitely added to our enjoyment of the evening! David did an excellent job bussing our table and keeping things clean and orderly for the next exciting course… btw pace yourself! There will be a LOT of food! 😋 And my goodness the dancing/entertainment!! If only I could move like those individuals!! 😲😅. So fascinating and fun to watch!

This is our second time going to this Luau. It is one of the better shows we have been to and by far the best drinks and atmosphere for taking group photos!! The first time we went was a buffet style which they have now changed to a plated meal (Covid rule). The food is good but the buffet was so much nicer allowing you to get more of what you liked and less (or none) of what you didn’t care for. We hate waisting food so a bummer seeing items tossed that we didn’t care for.

Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. For me, a Luau is a one time thing to do since it is very expensive but we enjoyed it. I can see why this is one of the top rated. It was a little unclear if the menu was buffet style, but it is plated. However, there was a lot of food and we were very full and wouldn’t have wanted more. Unlimited drinks and we were able to get them all virgin as well. I felt they did a good job explaining history and showing the evolution of the hula. I saw a portion of another luau at my resort and this was significantly better (although also much more expensive). There were a few times it was hard to hear the narration, so that could be improved.Beware this gets booked months in advance. They were fully booked when I looked, but added my name to my waitlist and got a call a week before they had a spot, so their waitlist does work! Note: I did not receive any confirmation when signing up for the waitlist which was frustrating, but did get an email when the spot opened up.

This is definitely one of the best luaus we have attended in terms of the food and the show. It was a beautiful setting, and we watched the sun set as we ate dinner. There were 5 courses, and they brought out a sampling of all the foods in each course. I really enjoyed this over the buffet style. You can still request as much of a particular dish as you want, but they bring it to the table instead of your having to stand in the buffet line. Every course was so nicely done and felt like being at a nice restaurant rather than a buffet.The show was stunning as well. I loved that they told the history of Maui specifically.

Together you all made our first Luau experience one we will always remember.

Fantastic experience. Everyone was lovely: the servers, those doing the activities, the drummers, the dancers! We had a rare opportunity to join my parents on Maui and bought this as a gift for them. Purchasing I we the phone was easy. we called and confirmed the reservation when we arrived to the island. We had a little drizzle in the beginning but nothing too serious! The food was fantastic. Everyone was so wonderful and attentive. This was my first luau and it is definitely worth the experience! Got to learn a lot of history as well.

We enjoyed this Luau! The grounds are beautiful and i liked that the seating was raised so everyone could see! Waiters and staff were very friendly! It rained, which delayed dinner a few minutes but they were kind to give everyone rain ponchos! I thought the food was pretty good. They did well at organizing everything so it wasnt a crowded mess! The show was great and they gave everyone banana bread and chocolate to go! I feel that they try to personalize and make it a unique experiences! No sales pitches at this luau. Non what so ever!

As soon as you walk in they hand you a Mai Tai. That alone is worthy of 5 stars. The setting is beautiful highlighted by a Lahaina sunset backdrop. The service is top notch and the food was quite awesome considering the number of people they feed. Unlimited poke? Scoop, scoop, scoop... Can't get enough. They didn't cheap out on the drinks either. Before the show starts you can check out some native Hawaiian crafts, watch some musicals demos or get a picture taken. The photographers might be the only negative here as they just splash u with a forward flash without diffusers or umbrellas. The pig is unveiled as one of the staff explain the story behind it. The dance/musical performances were equal on the history, storytelling and quite enjoyable. Finally the night is included with a slow dance with a loved one. My 6 year old loved the whole thing!

Great show! The food was more on the authentic Hawaiian style, very good. They slow roasted a pig and uncovered it as part of the learning experience. The smoky flavor really made this my favorite of the foods. Show was entertaining and included a bit of history throughout.

The food was amazing! There was such a variety to choose from. All the drinks and cocktails were excellent and the servers would bring them to your table once dinner was started. The entertainment before hand and during dinner was all amazing and a great way to learn about Hawaii and its culture. Highly recommended
