I love Luau Larry's! We always bring all our friends here when we come. The daytime staff is amazing!! So happy they have their breakfast back too because they have the best burritos.

If you're looking for fun AND food, Luau Larry's is the place on the boardwalk. It sits overlooking Avalon Harbor, the marina and mighty Pacific Ocean. The food is good and from hamburgers to nachos, there is something for everyone. If you get there in time, you should get a seat along the open window that faces the boardwalk and... More

We decided to stop in here because it was a gal's getaway and we wanted to "live it up" while on the island. The day we went there were no cruise ships so it wasn't wall to wall people. The bar is very small (maybe 10 tables?). The staff is friendly, though, and accommodating. We both had the Wiki Wacker... More

It was a cute, little bar right on the promenade. The drinks were good, we didn't have food, as it seemed more like a drinking place. The people at the bar were having a blast. Would go again for drinks.

For $9 bucks you get a big tropical rum drink and a free straw hat. What a deal. It's called the Wiki Wacker and definitely a conversation starter. We were there on a Saturday around noon. Sat at the bar, met some locals, met some visitors, laughed a lot, ate 8 juicy buffalo chicken wings with spicy sauce and then... More

This restaurant is street front and over looking Avalon. A great island vibe here anytime of the day. The food is what you'd think of bar island cuisine but one of the Better places to eat.

We ate here the most. 4 times in a week. Love the location right across from the beach. Food was really good with excellent service. The clam chowder was a particular favorite!

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
