Wandered in here for a beer and a bite to eat. The service was great. But....the pizza was amazing!! Wished it was closer to home- we would be regulars for sure!

I have been to this place every time I have visited Catalina (which is twice as of now). Great oyster shots and food. Who can resist ordering buffalo milk :)

Great hats, fun, drinks, company, pizza. Whacky spot. Worth visiting ! Very much for passing trade, but, if you just got on the island from the ferry or cruise ship, then go there!!!

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.
