Kailua landmark

Buzzes has been located here for 30 years or so. Reservations recommend as it is a popular spot right across from the beach park and at the entrance to Lanikai.

truly a staple for windward beach dining. Nice setting, a little pricier than other local options, but definitely a must visit while in Kailua.

This dining spot across from the local beach is a favorite hangout for locals and tourists who've been lucky enough to find it. We eat here every time we come to Hawaii and the food and service never let us down. My favorite is the calamari which is a steak rather than the circular bites you might be used to.... More

In town for a wedding and four of us decided to check it out. Unreal location and very cool on the inside, seems like they kept the same style since day one, loved the old photos. Hostess was super nice. The place was busy and I ran up and asked how long to get a table for 4, right away,... More

The place is across from the beach. Food taste: good! Service: Hostess/manager:rude; we were scolded for requesting seats outside without having made a reservation. Waitress: trying hard to earn her tip. Cleanliness: need for improvement. It's dark inside and one cannot see very well.

Okay, they may not serve the best steaks on O'ahu (Ruth's Chris, Haleiwa Joe's, and several other restaurants serve higher-quality beef) -- but they're darned good nonetheless. The magic of Buzz's is more in the laid-back ambiance and the wonderful service, especially at the bar (where the cocktails are awesome, too). Nowadays I stick to the calamari steak appetizer, the...

Stumbled upon buzz's when visiting the beach and stopped in for a nice lunch. Service was prompt and friendly and we enjoyed our lunch. We tried the open face crab sandwich which was good, perhaps seasoned just a little heavy for delicate crab. We also had the fish burrito, a generous and tasty plate. Desserts were reasonably priced, seemed to... More

Yesterday I took my Tutu who came to visit and wanted to go to Buzz's in Kailua in Oahu. She was so happy to hear her wish come true at Buzz's on a Sunday. Food was excellent, staff was friendly we sat outside where you can see the Beach. But was very disappointed in our waitress who we only saw... More

Buzz's is an awesome place to grab a feed and they have the best damn burger ever! It's call Buzz's Jack Daniels Burger and it the tastiest burger I've ever had anywhere! Good service and nice people and it's right across the road from Kailua Beach and Lanikai Beach is just around the corner!
