Average Product Rating: 4.9 / 5
We went to this luau in 2003 and again in 2009. The location, service, food and show quality are much better than luaus we had been to elsewhere. We chose the regular seating at tables instead of traditional seating on the ground at low tables. There isn't a bad seat anywhere at this location and you won't be waiting in lines for food or drinks like at some luaus.
Probably was the best event we went to and our server was awsome...... couldn't ask for a better time
I was told by my travel agent who specializes in Hawaii that this was the best Luau bar none so we decided to celebrate our anniversary at Old Lahaina and it didn't disappoint. The grounds are beautiful and the entertainment was superb! And OMG the FOOD...definitely go hungry! The personal attention made us feel so special. The orchid lei that they placed on each of us was icing on the cake! I think I tried everything, even the poi (not a fan) because when in Maui...celebrate life! Oh and the entertainment was phenomenal!!
Lovely evening, great organization serving many guests, the waiters were entertaining and personable as well. The show is worth the price of admission on it's own. Colorful, authentic, and professional.
The Old Lahaina Luau was one of my favorite things we did on our vacation to the Islands. I would recommend it to anyone!!
We booked our luau through Tom Barefoot's Tours from home 2 months before our vacation. We booked Old Lahaina Luau which we had attended in 2000. Booking through Tom Barefoot's Tours assured us of being able to experience with our children a wonderful night. The event was full and the food was great. The kids never missed a part of the show and the story that was told. We will use Tom Barefoot's tours on our next trip to Hawaii and we have suggested Tom's to many friends that are or have travelled since we have.
Aloha Wayne, Mahalo for relying on our team of experts to assist your family in creating the best most personalized vacation of fun for your family through the years! We appreciate your appreciation and love what we do.
This is our second luau experience in Maui, and it was superior to our prior experience. The food was incredible, as well as the service. If you are looking for a "tourist" experience, this is not for you. The show is definitely rooted in Hawaiian tradition and leads you through an interesting history of the islands. The backdrop is the Lahaina harbor, and the background music is provided by a quaint and talented band. My teenage children really enjoyed the night. They especially enjoyed watching their mom and dad slow dance to a song played by the band at the end of the night. This is well worth the money.
Very Nice, everything we were hoping it would be. Your process was easy and straight forward. Thanks.
It was a beautiful night. The food and drinks were good. The show activity was entertaining.
We really enjoyed the Luau, the show, food and service was excellent.
Thoroughly enjoyed this experience! The staff that not of been any kinder or more attentive
Can't say enough positive things about our experience at the Old Lahaina Luau. Professional staff, well organized, great service, food was exceptional, and the performance was GREAT. So happy we picked this organization for our Maui luau experience.
A thoroughly enjoyable evening of song, dance, and great food. Beautiful production which really provided a feel for the traditional Hawaiian culture yet brought things into the present with vignettes centering on more recent events. Outstanding in every respect. Highly recommended.
It was wonderful-food great as was service and entertainment! I would have liked to be closer to the stage but so would everyone!!! I understand and when I stood up I could see everything! Fabulous!!
This was one of the most favorite parts of our vacation. The service was superb and the show was educational and entertaining.
Well organized, friendly service, terrific entertainment, good food.
Thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
First Luau and it was awesome, we loved every minute of it. The dance, the story telling and the food made this a night to remember.
Our visit to Old Lahaina Luau was wonderful. Check-in was smooth and easy. The food was delicious and plentiful, the entertainment was magical, and the staff was professional and very friendly.
We had a really fun night out. The whole operation was so professional and well choreographed from the moment of arrival and everyone made us welcome and ensured we had everything we needed. Noah our host was attentive and funny. The guys who dug up the pig were great and the food overall was of a high quality and wide variety giving us a chance to try new things. The highlight was the dancing though. Really amazing and everyone got a great view. Thank you for a brilliant night out.
My wife and I have been to many different Luau's over the last 5 years we have been on the islands. This one you cannot go wrong! We had excellent food., drinks, service but more importantly, we thought the performance was done excellently bringing out the traditions of Hawaii. We recommend this luau highly and want to advise to book this early (6 months) in order to get front row seating which we did. Thank you Tom Barefoot Tours!
The luau was amazing only one problem we had is I booked a table vs the floor seating and we got the floor seating which didn't work for my mom's metal hip and the we're booked...the staff was very accommodating and got us a table but it was after half the show and dinner so my mom had to stand up every 20 mins until we moved. Other than that this luau was the best and would definitely go again!
We were a party of 6 ranging in age 17 to 52. The food, atmosphere, and entertainment were top notch. We all agreed that this Luau was a 5 out of 5. One of the highlights of our trip.
My family and I had a wonderful time! The food, drinks and service were fantastic! The history and show was amazing!
The Old Lahaina Luau was the best part of anniversary celebration. From the beach location, music, games, food, service and of course the show were all outstanding. We wish our photos came out better but we will always remember in our hearts. We plan to visit again with friends, we loved Maui. Thanks for making our dreams come true.
The show, the food and the staff was amazing. Highly recommend.
Excellent luau! Could not have been nicer. Beautiful location, great food, lovely show, and a full moon to boot! We've been to several different luaus and this was by far the best! Only complaint was that the taxis that they assured us would be waiting after the show were non-existent. Note to anyone planning to go: make arrangements for a pickup with Uber or a cab before you go.
Wonderful! Great show! Would recommend to anyone.
We had such a fun evening, the show was super and the food great. No waiting and things ran so smoothly. Tim our waiter was so much fun. We just had a great time.
Had a wonderful time and what a great way to end my first trip to Hawaii! The food was wonderful and I tried most everything, the personable wait staff at the tables were very attentive. The entertainment was so fun and I loved learning the history of Hawaii through the stories and the Hula. It was in a beautiful setting, the atmosphere was great and it was a clear night with a full moon or almost full moon that shown brightly. I have done nothing but rave about my trip and the Luau since I have returned home. Would totally go again to this Luau and if I go back to Hawaii I will totally be booking my adventures Tom Barefoot.
Best night ever!! Everything was perfect!
Went there to celebrate my 30th birthday and I was very, very pleased with the service, attention and just the whole luau. I would definitely go again. Food was great! I regretted not getting there early enough to participate one the little stations they had going prior to our meal.
Fully enjoyed the Old Lahaina Lua. Food was excellent, as was the entertainment. Highly recommend.

Have been to several Luaus over the years and this is the best for learning about Hawaii history, the best food, and activities for the kids.
