THE Best Burger

Visited Larry's with some friends in November, we initially intended just to have a couple of beers, so sat at the bar, not in the dining area. The food looked good, so decided to have a burger. It was cooked exactly as requested, medium-rare. It was succulent and juicy, very tasty indeed. The... read more

I ordered a pizza with a beer, the staff was friendly. The pizza was okay but really too greasy for me. It's probably the way they do the margherita with tomato, mozarella and an additional cheese (that you don't usually have)

We went to Larry's for lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the menu and service. Larry's is as unique an interesting as is the rest of Venice Beach. We had good food and good service.

Service was horrible. By the time I was approached by a sever, he looked irritated....at me! Food was good enough, but not worth being ignored. Heard several tables around me with the same issue... no thank you.

Really nice bar with good food and friendly staff along with a great atmosphere. Nice selection of drinks including some wicked cocktails. Great place to relax along the Venice Boardwalk.

Popped in for a bite to eat one afternoon, quite a busy place, ordered the 'classic Burger' for $11, nice thick juicy patty, Brioche Bun, nice fries (I'm sure American ones are better than ours) excellent selection of American and local beers. A good place for a bite to eat or just a cold one in the Californian heat.

Larry´s was a great find in Venice Beach. The area is so relaxed that you might think you would not find any decent food here. We went to Larry´s twice and had perfect hamburgers there. It was prepared from high quality ingredients, full of flavor and the bun was more like brioche than a typical hamburger bun. So great. Pizzas... More

This place is good for having a chilled lunch. Service and food were ok. Ordered fish & chips, but not the best that I've ever had. The best part was the music. The playlist was so good!

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.
