My fiance and I ate at Luau Larry's on a Friday night in December. There was great live music and people dancing in the aisles. We sat near the back where it was a bit quieter. He tried the pizza and I tried the ahi tuna. Both were delicious. We returned the following night and sat at the bar for... More

great drinks, good breakfast, live music at night. Really fun place to party and meet people but very small so it can get really crowded

Great place to get going with your friends, dancing to the music and drinking a few Buffalo Milks. The only place in town to get a hat with your drink!

I go to Luau Larry's every time I go to Catalina! Their buffalo burger is the best! Service is always quick and friendly, and if you feel like having a "private" table, wait for the table in the "cave". Fun atmosphere, tasty burgers.

Catalina Island is a small place so when you walk in you can totally tell this is like a "Cheers" Bar, everyone knows your name. Although they KNOW you don't belong and you're a visitor they treat you JUST like you come there daily. It's always nice to feel welcomed when in a new place. I shared a buffalo burger... More

My wife and i stayed on the island over night. Had lunch at Luau Larry's the first day and the Buffalo Burger was delicious. Tasted a couple of their specialty drinks, Buffalo Milk and Mexican Lollipop, and you can't miss with either. The staff including Yoni were all very nice and had plenty of islands knowledge to share. We stopped... More

While taking a day tour at Avalon, my wife and I had lunch at Luau Larry's. My wife ordered the "Seared Ahi" and I ordered the "Poke." Both were surprisingly good! Luau Larry's also sells huge drinks. The dining area is small and congested and the noise level is loud. It is a party spot.

Get a buffalo milk and dance yourself silly! It's just an island thing you need to do. The crowd is fun! The service was good. Band was good.
