Super fun

Luau Larry's is a great place to enjoy on your vacation, with tropical drinks, funny bartenders, and live music. I highly recommend it... I visit it every time I come to Catalina.

Excellent food to much for me to finish. The bar serves a wicky wac or something like that and you receive a straw hat to display your fine selection of drink. Right across from beach window to look out off and one drink will set you up for that tan. The staff or crew is always happy and glad to... More

Honestly, the best drinks, and the best value for drinks, from all the places we tried. Just scrumptious. Very casual place, beach bum atmosphere, but WOW - awesome drinks. Don't expect fancy, but be prepared to enjoy yourself. Oh, and better eat some food too, if you want to walk out of there in a straight line. Yes, yes, the... More

Good Clam Chowder, excellent Soardfish tacos and Cole Slaw. Excellent, friendly service and a nice mix of locals and tourists.

This is a great location to stop in for a drink, and visit with friends (Hi Tiffany & Jo.) The wait staff was always checking on any needs we might have, and were able to provide answers to all of our touristy questions.

My wife and I were cruising locally, Dana Point offshore looking for whales! We decided to just randomly cross the channel and have lunch at Larry's, we had a great lunch and we love to eat in The Cave!

While waiting for my wife outside a gift shop I met officers Bob and Danny. I asked them about pizza on the island. They said try Luau Larry's. So that night we gave it a try. When we walked in there was officers Bob and Danny. The pizza was awesome. Now if you can't trust the appetites of a law... More

My husband and I decided to stop in for a drink. I couldn't pass up the Wiki Wacker. Not only do you get a delicious drink, but you get a straw hat too. The drink is very good and will give you a slight buzz. If you are visiting for the first time I recommend having a little fun and... More
