Nice selection of food. We stuck with the conventional burger and that was a very good choice. The presentation was appealing (see photo) with the burger served on a board with fries in a cone.
It's a bit pricy but compared to some of the other places I thought it was worth it for atmosphere, although it was quite loud.

Whilst visiting Venice Beach we came across Larry's just off the boardwalk. This restaurant will appeal to anyone wishing to enjoy a great meal at good prices whilst recieving a high standard of service. The meals vary from the routine through to some very interesting and enjoyable combinations which the average person would probably not think to try.

Larry's are located at 24 Wynard Avenue Venice Beach and may be contacted on (310) 399 2700 or larrysvenice.com.

We will definitely be going back and I am sure you will too if you have the time.

Was on a business trip and just popped over to Venice beach to have a look at this iconic place. Didn't expect to find a brussels sprout pizza and amazing microbrewery beer. Friendly service and excellent music too...

Looking for a little more than a stand-up snack, we happened upon Larry's on Windward Ave. Pleasantly surprised by the fine food and extensive beer choices. The server's are very pleasant and efficient and the restaurant is very clean and well run. The atmosphere is contemporary but just right for the location. Highly recommend this stop when you are strolling Venice Beach.

Aren't you tired of going to trendy locations, only to be extremely disappointed in the quality of food that is within walking distance? You have to take a cab, then endure the wait afterwards to get back.
If you go to Venice Beach, you can now relax. Don't go to Larry's Venice after 7:00pm, though; there will be a line. When you get there, you'll wonder why. It looks like a dive. The outer environment could graciously be described as "colorful". Even after being seated, you may still be skeptical. But wait for it; the dining experience is quite a surprise. Urban Spoon gave them a 100% rating. That is neither an exaggeration, nor an embellishment. The ceviche was so delicate, superbe. The scallops were tender, not overlooked. The wine selection is more than adequate. If you're into beer, they have maybe a hundred different choices.
Venice Beach: a destination. Larry's Venice: a destination restaurant!
