Very cool place, a must to try the famous drink... The wings and swordfish tacos where very good. The next day we went for breakfast and it was excellent. Very festive and fun place.

I've been coming to Avalon for short summer breaks since the Reagan Administration, and Luau Larrry's is one of the town's constants. When we heard about their $5 "Cheesburger in Paradise" special (Wednesday night only from 5 to 8 p.m.) we thought, how wrong can you go for five bucks? I halfway expected a two-ounce ground beef patty with the... More

Excellent service and location. Waitress was extremely friendly and the breakfast was great. If you get there early there is a front inside booth that is great to watch the people! Food was very good! Service is excellent!

We stopped by here to buy a shirt for my dad, and ended up having cocktails and burgers because it was $5 burger night. Chicken or beef. It was a little crazy, and they don't seem to have an organized system. But they must, because the waitress had a table for us when she said she would. Service was friendly,... More

Step off your boat or off the flyer and into Luau Larry's. It's practically on the beach and has open windows to the street. It's a party waiting to happen with signature bar drinks and live music. The food is traditional bar food--burgers and such, but the beer and drinks flow freely and everyone is here to have a good... More

Great bar right on the boardwalk. I recommend stopping in and have a drink, or two, or three, or staying until they kick you out.

Small place but great food. Sat by the bar and had a Mexican lollipop. Spicy but good. Their Mexican cocktail shrimp was delicious.

We had a blast here. You have to order the Wiki Wacker, as it comes with a goofy straw hat. Go there. You'll be glad you did.

This place had live music most nights. It isn't very big, so plan to get there early or eat at the bar. The food was interesting with some normal burgers and such an items like poke. All the food was good, the staff was professional. On weekend nights, this place is packed.
