Great Beer/Good Fish and Chips

Great fish and chips. Good beer on tap! Green Flash and Blue Moon. There is a strange booth that looks like it's in a cave. Low key and casual :)

We went to Luau Larry's after the Catalina Marathon to celebrate with a few drinks. The famos drink is the wikki wack. If you order one you get a fun straw hat and a bumper sticker that says "I got my wikki wacked at Luau Larry's" It was a fruity concoction, but tasty. The burgers were really good, and hit... More

We went there a couple of times for drinks. Drinks were fun and so was the atmosphere. Be sure to get a bumper sticker.

After all the reviews and recommendations to hit this place up, I wasn't too impressed. It is a good mix of tourists and locals. The drinks are ok. I definitely have had better drinks elsewhere in Avalon. It is fun and I got a hat for ordering a Wiki Wacker.

The drinks here are very tall and the music is great. The crowd is friendly and the bar is right down on the waterfront near the hotel.

You have to go to this place, sit at the window seat and watch the tourists walk by. Best Mai-Tai's on the Island, and a fun place to go to. It's always the last place we go to before we leave the island. Food is fab too.
