So, this is an upscale steakhouse across from Kailua Beach park. You can throw something on over your suit and have a world class dinner as long as you cover your shoulders. I have never sat at a table. In fact, in the many times I have been there, I have sat in one of three different stools at the... More

We really enjoyed our lunch at Buzz's in June. Traffic gets backed thoughout that area, getting in and out of the restaurant's parking lot can be tricky, and parking spaces are limited.... BUT it was worth it! We got a nice table next to an open air window onto the patio. We told the waitress we didn't have much time,... More

I wish that they took American Express. We love going to Kailua Beach and Buss's is just across the street. I don't like to carry cash and only bring my American Express Card because they are super fast handling lost or stolen cards. Buzz's doesn't take American Express so they miss out on our trips to the beach for lunch.

Long lines during peak hours, difficulty parking, but totally worth it! The best steaks on the island, salad buffet in the evening has a nice grouping of ingredients. Friendly BarTenders! Oh yes, they love you enough to give you a drink worth coming out of the sunshine for! This is the restaurant I take my house guests to. It is... More

Always have great selection of Pacific Ocean fish. And now take credit cards too. Great breezy location at beach park complete with tiki tiki ambiance.

Lovely relaxed beach side restaurant by Kailua beach. We were a party of 8 with 4 adults and 4 children and had a very enjoyable lunch we returned back the next day! Good value food and portions and very accommodating with children. The sirlion steaks at $14.95 was exceptionally good value and came with a ceasar salad starter.

I hate taking cash to the beach, but I always have my Amex card tucked away. Because Buzz's doesn't take the card, it limits the opportunity to stop for food. Maybe a dozen trips have been lost to Buzz's. I guess it's better to have some cash for them. Not the guest.

We read the reviews before we went and even though they weren't great, we decided to give it a chance. I thought the lady/front end manager who was at the door was rude right up front. She sat us at the back end of the bar, the we waited a good ten minutes before anyone even asked us if we... More

You have to book for this restaurant as it is quite busy for dinner time. We found the waitress to be very helpful, friendly and efficient. The only negative is the salad bar which I didn't find it very well stock as there were many people going through it. The meals were excellent and the portion of the meals were... More
