Always a favorite for fresh seafood and live music. It's a legendary restaurant that we have enjoyed for many years.

We visited Larry's because a friend, Pee Wee Bowen, brought his band to town. The place was packed but the service was still very good and the wait time for a table was less than 10 minutes. We enjoyed the food, the music and had a great evening. I would suggest making a reservation when popular bands are playing.

Just ate here today and I have to say the food and service was fantastic. The restaurant is pretty cool looking inside and the buffet was cafeteria style. Scoot through the line and people take up the food for you. I'm not sure if they have a different selection each day but today there was a wide variety of grub.... More

All the food was very good. The salad bar was well laid out-great potato sald. The seafood gumbo is excellent. I also tried the crawfish jam balaya and the fried shrimp. Both were very good. Also a great place to dine and dance on weekends.

Quick hearty Cajun lunch choices draw a good crowd. Seafood buffet is mid $30 pp. A little much for not a large appetite, but they sell a lot. Locals like the fe do do. Dancing, eating, drinking with all generations of the family. Cajun tradition, and the only one outside of Louisiana I know of. A great family evening to... More

Wanted Cajun food and close to Louisiana and Larry's highly rated. Just rating as large servings, flavorful and variety. Fried shrimp was more shrimp than batter, chicken delicious. Sides were plentiful - northern beans, stewed tomatoes, rice were superb. Gumbo of any flavor were a hit. Service quick and friendly. You know it's a must eat when local workers fill... More

I was a little scared off by the price of the buffet... but after one look of the selection it was a no-brainer for me. The selection of fried gator and fried frog legs were great! Boudain, shrimp and crawfish ettouffe, catfish, gumbo and a couple of cold beers... damn Nick I ate like I was going to the electric... More

Great place to go on Friday and Saturday to listen to usually French Cajun music, dance and eat. Family friendly. Food is good and a lot of it. It can get busy so you may have to wait a bit.
