“A nice time was had by all.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We like this place. It's a fun, relatively inexpensive, local steak house. The staff are very friendly, the food is good, and the drinks are reasonabgly priced. It's just a hop, skip and a jump from Kailua beach. and there's a car park right beside the restaurant. All in all, our group had a very nice time here, and I'll bet you do too.

“Home away from Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

I love the friendly vibe in this place. I sat in the bar and had great conversations going all around me. The food is great, and the salad bar is the best. I walk to this restaurant from a couple of blocks away, and the stroll back home along the beach, on a very lovely evening really is not to be missed.

“It's ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Buzz's isn't bad but I'd rather go down the street to Cattle Company. The wait staff is nice but the food is only average and overpriced because of its averageness, and the steak isn't tender.

“Buzz's Still Serving Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Just dined at Buzz's last week. Try the calamari steak appetizer, yum! Good steak and grilled fish, a bit pricey.... but you're in Hawaii.

“Best seafood kabobs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

the salad bar is the bomb. Even though it's to a smaller scale, everything is fresh! The bread is also served fresh and hot. I normally order the kabobs or their short ribs. Gotta go back soon!
