I have now been to enough Luaus to have some basis for comparison, and so far this is my favorite. The location with its seaside view is enough reason to come, but the nice mix of entertainment, drinks, food, table service ( I hate buffets, so being served at the table is a real plus), and the fact that we had our own table for two all made this a standout experience. Unlike some luaus, the show began a bit later in the eating experience. I like that because it gave us time to chat, enjoy our food, take pictures along the waterside before focusing our attention on the show. Another difference was that there was no comedy routine woven into the show, and while I do appreciate the humor of some luau MCs, it is also refreshing to just learn some of the history or lore of the islands while enjoying the music and dance without the constant injection of jokes. The food was also a bit better than the food I have experienced at other luaus, though I have never had truly outstanding food at any of these kinds of events. I do appreciate that if you are vegetarian (as I am) they can make arrangements for you. The vegetarian appetizers were a bit unappealing but the entree made up for it, and I asked for extra bread to make up for my lack of interest in the appetizers. Oddly, they brought the same quantity of fish and pork to our table as if it were for two people (actually it was enough for 5 people ) to share in spite of the fact that I told them I was vegetarian. It was a bit wasteful on their end and something they should think about for future arrangements.
Overall, the combination of the seating arrangements, the beautiful venue, and the great band and performers made this a lovely evening. One minor glitch in the experience is that we had a server with a bit of a personality disorder. She is not exactly a "people person" and may want to consider other career paths. When we asked fairly simple questions about the menu and how things would be served, she got strangely defensive and there was a tinge of hostility to her interactions with us up until the very end (tip time!) when she became over the top gooey friendly. The other servers here all seem great from what I witnessed and overheard, so I think she is an anomaly at the place. I would definitely recommend this luau as one of the more tasteful ones in spite of some minor matters that could be improved.

We loved our experience at the luau, it was great for a family with young kids (4 and 6). Our server and busser were both very friendly and knowledgeable and the food was delicious. They also give you banana bread to take home at the end of the evening.

The views here are fantastic, which is what sets this luau apart. The food and drinks are average and the show is good -- likely very similar to others. But the waterfront view is great and it was a fun evening.

My husband and I experienced the Old Lahaina Luau on our honeymoon in November in Ka'anapali. We experienced the friendliest and most attentive service from our server and busser. The food and drink were great -- I'd recommend pacing yourself, since we were so full by the end we couldn't enjoy the main course as fully as we wanted to!

We had such a wonderful experience! The food is so delicious and it was fun to sample so many Hawaiian foods at one sitting. They bring so many options and drink are included! They encourage taking pictures and the setting is beautiful. The show was so fun and I loved learning about Hawaiian culture. Would definitely go again!

The cast and servers were by far the best I've seen. Very attentive and helpful! Parking was easy. As time goes on, my biggest gripe is around gratuities. It'd be nice if the price at reservation were inclusive, but....you get an email confirmation before the event suggesting gratuities. For our party of 10, it was $21 to $30 per person. I like to give gratuities from the heart and not because the owner doesn't pay there employees enough. The Gratuity suggestions felt like a guilt trip and have to vs from my heart.

Way too much money for what you get. Staff nice, food ok. Show nice. Drinks had very very very little alcohol. I would not recommend this show. And we had to tip at the end. Find another.

This luau was a well-oiled machine! When we arrived, the entrance line seemed long, but we were seated immediately (after we received our leis, of course!). The 1st of 5 courses came immediately, with our amazing waitress, Kona. She gave detailed descriptions of all the courses along with some Hawaiian history as well. She was VERY helpful with my food allergies, and made sure to note foods I couldn’t eat. She was easily accessible for more drinks and/or food. The luau show was amazing as well - great dancing, music, and outfits. We had an awesome experience and highly recommend this to anyone in the area!
