We enjoyed an evening at Luau Larry’s and tried several Buffalo Milks. They are known for a fun environment. The live entertainment kept the mood elevated! It’s a lively place for a fun night!

Stopped by for a quick lunch and a beer. I had the fish taco and wife had clam crowder. Both were excellent.

We had burgers and fish and chips! Evening time on a Monday was quiet so we got a perfect window seat. Try the gummy bear drink !!

It's very small but lots of fun. They serve a drink called a Mexican Lollypop that is so good! We loved it and cannot find the recipe. If anyone knows what's in this drink, please pass it on. Would definitely come back!

Luau Larry's is "a must" visit while in Avalon. The drinks are great and the bar is lively. There is live music on weekends.

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.

It was still a rousing good time when I was there. Very noisy, very packed and very fun.
