Food was excellent and fun place to hang out at

Always live music going on which helps with making Luau Larry's so fun to hang out at. Can get rather crowded on busy times of the year, but that can add to the atmosphere and good times. They have some really great swordfish tacos and their burgers are excellent. Throw in some cold beers or fancy... read more

Typically will pop in Luau Larry's for a beer, and maybe a bite. Always a bit tight at the bar, and crowded on nice days.

Waiting for our room to be ready we wandered down the street and the reader board looked interesting. Food was great, as good a plate of fish and chips as I've had and my wife says her shrimp and chips were absolutely the best. Lightly breaded and full of flavor for both dishes. A good selections of beers and assistance... More

A small restaurant but well worth waiting for a table if you have to. The staff was super friendly and the drinks and food were excellent. Their giant drinks do not disappoint - 45 oz's and delish!

Great place to run in for a drink. The decor could use a little freshening up, but the Hawaii theme actually wasn't bad. Just a couple of TV's, more of a belly up to the bar place than a lot of the other places I visited. I ordered the Wahoo Fish sandwich (thinking it might be local), but it and... More

Loved this place, fun people behind the bar and great drinks. We went in at lunch, a little concerned that we wouldn't find seats. The bartender saw us looking around and asked the folks at the bar to scoot down so there was room for us. Great views, can't wait to go back!

Decided to go to Catalina Island for a walk and lunch. Checked out Trip Advisor and picked Luau Larry's because of their revues. The staff was great, music awesome, Oysters on the half shell exceptional but the blackened fish sandwich was incredible. Highly recommend Luau Larry's when visiting Avalon.

Everytime we go to Catalina we eat at Luau Larry's. We first went there for the wiki whacker hats... you get one when you order some really yummy cocktails. We have eaten lunch and dinner there and each time the food is excellent! Everyone in our party was happy with the food and the service. The restaurant has music and... More
