The food was scrumptious and the prices not too shocking. It's not set up for groups larger than six, so you'll split up if you need more seating. The atmosphere is somewhat similar to Islands, but not exactly.

This place is so much fun. We had the honor of eating in the cave. It does fit 5 grown adults comfortably. The food is right for the price. It is amazing! If you get the wicky wacky drink then you get a fun Hawaiian hat.

We girls had soooo much fun celebrating our 60th 39th birthdays. Their world renowned party drink ... The Wiki Wacker helped us enjoy the stellar burger served on Wednesday nights. A 'locals' favorite choice!

Catalina is expensive, but you can get a pretty good deal at Luau Larry's. It's not a fancy place by any stretch, but the food was pretty solid and priced reasonably. They serve your standard American fare. The place seems like a little bit of a dive on the surface, and they were playing some bad classic rock (not the... More

What a fun tiki bar! I got the drink called the "Wiki Wacky" that came with a free straw hat. My sister got the "Buffalo Milk". Great! The background music was aimed at Baby Boomer. Okay by me!
