Had a great time with friends here. Great drinks--especially the mai tais. We just came for drinks so we didn't try the food. Great place to people watch on the main boardwalk.

In three days we stopped into Luau Larry's five times! Great Poke, tacos, pina coladas, sweet potato fries and laughs.

We dropped into Larry's while on Catalina last week and found a fun atmosphere and great burgers. You have to like a small, dive bar approach, and that's where you find many times the best food and service. Not to be missed in Avalon.

We have a really good buffalo burger, an average cheese pizza (lots of cheese with very little sauce), & really good seared salmon. Overall, would definitely recommend for solid lunch or casual dinner. Looked like they had good beer options, but did not try anything.
