Good buffalo burgers and fish tacos! Small, but fun and good service. Great for take out or a quick and casual meal or a drink. Will go back again next trip!

What do fun place to hang out with great views. We hung out here for a couple of hours enjoying happy hour. I of course had the Wiki Wacker which was yummy and came with a hat! The bartenders were fun and friendly. Everyone was having a great time! The margaritas are really tasty too!

I'll just state this up front: I love tiki bars. Let me repeat, I {less than symbol} 3 tiki bars. That being out there, I liked Larry's because it has all the right stuff. Firstly, it's on an actual island. Secondly, it has bamboo and palm fronds all over the interior. Thirdly, they have a cave inside that you can... More

My wife and I have been to Luau Larry's on every one of our trips to Avalon, usually multiple times. Great drinks, great island attitude, great food, great people watching, wonderful decorations, puts you in the vacation mental attitude immediately upon entering. Not too busy to be fun and still get your meal and drinks on time.

Really enjoyed eating there! Such great service and friendly people! The food was fantastic!!! We were seated outside and we saw the guy who comes around with the Falcon to scare away the pigeons! Crazy!! That was the highlight of our meal!

Luau Larry's is right on the beach front in Catalina and has a wonderful menu and fun drink specials! It's family friendly and happy hour is really fun! I look forward to coming here every time I come to Catalina Island.

Besides the bar scene Luau Larry's makes a delicious breakfast - don't miss the spinach omelet if you're a Popeye-type - and a spicy Bloody Mary that's not to be missed. Lots of fun and sure beats standing in line elsewhere.

With a name like Luau Larry's you've just got to try it. On the waterside promenade in center of town. Easy stroll back to your hotel or dinghy to your boat. Tropical drinks are great. Atmosphere and decor perfect for the island. Great spot for people watching. A crowded place in the evening. Early arrivals find the preferred seats. Music.... More
