Not many places offer views in Kailua. This restaurant isn't right on the beach, but it is as close as you can get without packing a picnic. Buzz's is good for lunch, dinner, or drinks. This visit we had lunch outside and 3/4 of our table said the food was great. One quarter of the group wouldn't order the same... More

Visiting family in Kailua, we first went to enjoy a beautiful beach sunset then walked right across the street to a really nice dinner. Seafood and prime ribs were among our choices, and everyone enjoyed the way above usual salads. Am attentive server, fun atmosphere and good food made for a great night out. I hear lunches are really nice,... More

Group of six on a Friday night with reservation. Good location and nice island atmosphere sitting on the lanai. Service was extremely friendly from hostess to servers. Perfect. Solid menu with both fish and of course steak options. Highlights for our experience were the salad bar and the deserts. The salad bar is small but has some great items, all... More

I love mai tais so I tend to try them everywhere. What they list as a mai tai here contains only rum and no mixers. I went to order without reading the discription carefully and fortunately our waitress warned us of this fact. She recommended instead the BFRD (Big F*** Rum Drink) which also contained pineapple juice. Still was way... More

The food and drinks are pricey (just like everything else in HI), but the food just isn't that great. The staff was actually nice and attentive (unlike a lot of places in HI). Next time, I will just stick with grilling my own steak. I have been there for lunch in the past and the lunch menu seemed to have... More

I ate at Buzz's with my daughter on a early Friday evening and even though they were packed they greeted us with a smile and had us seated right away even though we had no reservations. Service is friendly and inviting. We shared a plate of beef ribs. It has got to be the most underrated item on their menu.... More

People were waiting for tables but got seats at the bar. Excellent food, excellent service from the super busy bartender - I think her name was Mahalini? She recommended the Jack Daniels burger - it was incredible. Buzz"s is a landmark in Kailua - right across from the beach park - they certainly don't need my help but just had... More

Just off Kailua Bch, Buzz's has been around for years and has a local following. Crowded, noisy, slow service, compact dinning area & bar.Typical local pedestrian fare priced on the high side.
