Luau Larry's has a fun vibe and the staff was nice. I didn't go in thinking gourmet food, and it wasn't that but was good for the price.

I've had drinks there for years, but my wife and I decided to split a burger. It was so darn good, that we couldn't help ourselves and ordered a second. Always the fun spot on island, now it will be our dinner spot as well.

The New England Clam Chowder in a bread bowl was super creamy and delicous. Perfect for a cold, winter stay. A little busy, but we sat at the bar and received great service.

1. The drink was $9 when I was there and comes with a hat. 2. It is served in a tall hurricane glass so about 12 oz. 3. I think 6 at the cave table. 4. Email Lisa. Trip Advisor does not allow me to post her email address.
