Great food, atmosphere… Kailua ... Dining in paradise!

Five of us enjoyed our dinner here immensely. One of us enjoyed the Wahho and the other four of us couldn't decide between their wonderful fillets and crab legs. So we all ordered and split… Fabulous dinner was had by all. Save a little room because desert is Just as good. Went back a second time... read more

I've always liked the paddle menu and all of its simplicity. The salad bar is good too. My friend enjoyed her meal immensely and liked the location close to the beach. The staff, as always, was extremely friendly and courteous. I thoroughly enjoy seeing patrons and staff interactions and this restaurant definitely has one of the most laid back atmospheres... More

The King Crab Louie salad was out of this world. It was amazing. I would go there in a heartbeat again. Waiters very friendly.

This is a classic Hawaiian bar that has a restaurant added on. Service fast with a smile does not offset the rather plain-jane food. My drinks were great and reasonably priced. My food was bland, the marlin overcooked and tasteless, the sales crispy but ho-hum. If you're in the area, this is a good place to drop in, but definitely... More

Stopped in for an early dinner and were told we could be seated IF we were out within an hour. We dined inside, after asking for an outside spot. House cocktail was tasty but overpriced. Our fish dishes were well prepared (mine Hibachi style and my wife's was done Macadamia style) and the clam chowder before was good. Service was... More

Wanted a good meal by the beach. Location is good, but hard to find a parking spot. Men's bathroom doubles as a family bathroom. The food was good. The staff was friendly.

I grew up in Kailua & have visited Buzz's on a regular basis. I always knew the atmosphere was great (on the beach), food good but a little spendy & the drinks are strong. I have since moved away from Hawaii & haven't been back in two years. We did our regular deal, drink beer at Lanikai then head to... More

Fresh fish, perfect seasoning, and all around good! Great location, great food, and fun place! Whether you go swimming, surfing or shopping first this is a great place to end up. The drinks are great and the food even better.
