    I was leery at first but now I'm a convert. Great food - the pulled pork and the tuna poke are fabulous - and even better service. Drinks are included in the price so enjoy. I'll be going back.

    Couple things: Head to the pit early to see the pig unearthing (you'll get a good spot). Tip your server, who is sure to give you excellent service. Get a DD because it's an all-inclusive open bar!

    Easily the most authentic luau on Maui. Tickets are expensive but all inclusive - all you can drink and eat. Pig is unearthed ~30min before the meal.

    Maka is a great server and dancer. Drink up, the mixed drinks are pretty weak. Had to switch from missles to guns aka beer to keep the good time alive. Best luau in Hawaii, so much history.

    Traditional seating books fast so ask to be put on the wait list. Good performance, abundant buffet style food, and sugary cocktails.

    Mai tais are great! If check in is 5:45, food is not served until 6:45/7. Excellent service!

    There can be a month-long wait list. But, if you call the day you want to go after 10:30, spots free up on the wait list. Worth the effort.

    This is fantastic. Hands down the best luau in Maui. Skip the hotel ones and come here. Reserve a spot a week or two in advance.

    Ask for Tim. I forgot his daughter's name but she's a dancer here too. Awesome food, great staff, better show. Also there aren't really any bad seats so I preferred the chairs over the ground

    Great food AYCE, entertainment, and open bar! Try it all!! Mat seating is right in front, but your back starts to hurt and legs get numb.

    Awesome luau. Staff are super friendly and attentive. Food is great considering they are feeding a couple hundred people. All around a great evening.

    While the seats on pillows are a bit closer the tables with chairs sit up higher and have a great view. Come with an appetite and ready to enjoy the authentic show.

    They sell out of tickets way in advance, but if you call early on in your vacation, they may be able to get you in-as long as you're not picky on which day you go!

    The performers and staff are great. Service with a smile even when it was raining. They give you banana bread to take home.

    We'd come here again in a heartbeat. Food was great, drinks were great, and the atmosphere and staff really made the night special. One of the more authentic Luaus.

    If you like medieval times, and/or you're 12 years old, you'll love this shit! Otherwise, drink your face off, and you'll love this shit!

    Don't be afraid to try the poi. It's the bland pinkish goo pounded from Taro. It's used as a palette cleanser between each powerful, exotic dish. Read more

    Not worth the hype. Most the food had no flavor, nothing that sets it apart from US mainland food, well booze to ensure a hangover if you drink enough (cuz they're weak,) but a fantastic view.

    The food is pretty good, especially the pork, but the drinks lack any real alcohol content. The show was pretty standard.
