Went to Larry's for a burger and beer. The spot is good for people watching at Venice Beach. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Had the Larry burger and fries. Both were really nice, with both being good portion sizes. The drinks list had a wide choice. Great range of beers.

We were a bit hesitant at first but as soon as the waiter arrived we were sold. He was very friendly and professional and recommend both wine and food. We had the best fish (tuna) tacos we've ever had. We will definitely go back again.

Place was a bit pricey and portions are small, but the service was good for a busy night and the food quality was a surprise. Drinks were all made well and generous pours.

After experiencing the hustle and bustle of Venice beach we sought out a lunch place and stumbled across Larry’s. What a great find! We only had a short wait for a table in the outdoor area (which protected us from the sun, had excellent decor, and isolated you from the Venice crowds). Their beet selection was extensive and it was... More

Walking towards Venice Beach, I stumbled upon this hidden gem with its great atmosphere to have lunch or just a glass of beer in the middle of the day. The music makes you identify with the SoCal atmosphere, on top of your drink and food order, you get free ice-cold water and the staff is utterly friendly.

We recently visited Los Angeles and while exploring Venice Beach happened upon Larry's restaurant. What a great experience we had. The food was superb, the service 5 star and the owner was utterly charming. On hearing our South African accents he came over for a chat as he has been to South Africa before. We felt as if we had...

While walking the boardwalk I needed to find a nice place to sit, have a beer, watch the game and enjoy the weather and happened upon Larry's. This is a nice place with a great staff. The bartenders are attentive and the beer cold. The beers on tap are fancier beers and not the common domestics. I had the sweet... More

This place is a real Hidden Gem. One of my favorites anywhere to hang out; I've reviewed before. I will usually make a beeline for Larry's and the other day was one of the first to arrive on a Saturday. I was not disappointed. A friendly face, Brian, was behind the bar, as well as a girl that looked somewhat... More

Restaurants along the Boardwalk will be packed at lunchtime, and if you’re hungry and can bear a break from watching the Venice human flow (I'll bet you can), Larry’s may be the place. Just a block off the Boardwalk, Larry's is not going to jump out at you, but it’s a pleasant place for lunch, open air under colorful canopies.... More

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
Venice
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
