Good local pub, on the water at high tide.

Thursday night "open mic", always friendly staff. Decent food and a relaxing place to stop and hang out, some good music to boot.

They have a great outdoor patio on the water. A huge menu for a small bar. Appetizers and pizza were great. Weather you get all the toppings or just one the price is the same.

2 disabled people who went to have lunch there were refused service for no stated reason - recommend going elsewhere - like Annie's for example. Female manager lost this local business a lot of money! Never going again.

We drive by here all the time but have never stopped until one of our friends was singing and playing his guitar here a few days ago. It was a pretty nice day and there were people on the deck and the servers were very nice and the food we had was good too. They have a nice clientele. We... More

We were running through town and needed to pick up some grub. Ordered burgers from Buzz's to go. The food was awesome. Can't complain there. However, the inside of the restaurant smelled like cigarette smoke, which was not very appetizing. I can't see us eating there if it's like that often. Would pick up food there again, though.

We recently went to Buzz's for the first time with friends. It was a Saturday night and crowded. The service was good, the food was good but it was difficult to talk. Still, we all had a great time and will return soon.

The sandwiches are off the hook here! Very filling and very tasty. You will not be dissapointed if you swind in for a item off their menu. The beer is expensive and the Mac-n-Jack flavor was very off when I was there last time. So stopping in for food and one drink isn't too bad of a deal. They have... More

Very nice menu; a wide range of tasty sandwiches, burgers, and pizzas. Super selection of cold beers. Range of daily bar fun; karaoke, DJ, bingo, so pick your night. Best part? The prices, very inexpensive for very good food. So, not the place for your anniversary dinner, but if you want something, good, easy, affordable, and decent beer to boot,... More

The week night dinner specials are a great price for the food. Buzz's is also generally active for the dinner schedule. Bar-tending staff are generally friendly, efficient though busy so the "old fashion-welcome-back -experience" is lacking but that type of service seems more and more lacking in most restaurants and lounges I have encountered in the area. I liked their... More
