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

Everyone has to have the special drink, Wiki Wacker, at Luau Larry’s just to get the Huckleberry Finn straw hat. Tropical drinks, small bites, Hawaiian atmosphere, and lots of amusement right on the Promenade near the pier. Always busy because it's an island paradise.

Felt like Hawaii. Great drinks and food too. The restaurant is located right on the main street. Great to people watch while drinking a cocktail or two.
