Luau Larry's is a small place but also cute. We went for my eldest daughters birthday and was able to get the little "volcano room" in the back of the place. We only got an appetizer platter and she wanted a "wiki wack" which comes with a straw island hat. Cute little place.

Good food, great atmosphere, good prices. Portions were good. My husband got the fish and chips and wished he would've gotten the shrimp and chips...I got more shrimp than he got fish.

The bar tender was so accommodating, he made me a green grasshopper even though he was missing some ingredients, and it tasted awesome! Also tried a red headed $lut (shot) , which was pretty easy going down, and enjoyed an oyster shooter. The food was great for a place with such a good bar, and I'll definitely be back.

It can get noisy especially when a cruise ship is in port but the food is great and the drinks are as exotic as you want. Great place for lunch or dinner.

The food was very good with huge servings. The noise level was extreme due to partiers from the cruise ship, but everyone was having a great time.

If you're in the mood for listening to loud and boisterous bar goers, then this place is for you. I myself found it a little on the too loud side, even sitting far away from the bar. I had the clam chowder in a bread bowl, which was just your average New England-style clam chowder. There was nothing special about... More

50th birthday celebration with friends. We all got hats. For us it was all about the music. Terrific one-man-band played a wide variety of great music. Good food, good drinks, great service and fun atmosphere.

On a couples vacation and Luau Larry's was recommended to us by the gentleman at the golf cart rental place. If you order the "wicky whacker " drink special you get a complimentary straw hat! It was a fun photo prop for our vacation, and a yummy drink. The atmosphere is great with a tropical island theme and the location... More

Right on the boardwalk with live music some nights. My husband's fish and chips were excellent…skip the swordfish tacos. Again, friendly wait staff and fun atmosphere.

A warm and inviting feeling greeted me when I entered. Just looking for a restroom. They were so nice that we had lunch there. The food was very good a well as the service. And, OH yea, the restrooms were clean, too!
