We stopped by there on a Sunday afternoon for some shuffleboard. We had ice cold drinks and for eats we ordered the clams and mussels appetizer. It was so fresh and delicious. The broth was really good and had nice crusty bread for dipping it up. We all liked it so much we ordered a second order! Really nice.

Retired about 1 1/2 years ago and now meet weekly with former colleagues for lunch. We have worked our way through numerous restaurants, taverns, food trucks, and sandwich shops. Introduced to Buzz's Bar & Grill 2 months ago and have returned 3 times. Possibly our favorite spot. Great outdoor deck with view overlooking Mud Bay. Extensive menu and the food... More

This is a popular local watering hole in a very interesting location. The food and drink are what you would expect, but the place is right on Mud Bay, which deserves its name at low tide but is beautiful at high tide. I'd guess that 80% of the patrons are regulars but the place isn't anti new person.

Thursday night "open mic", always friendly staff. Decent food and a relaxing place to stop and hang out, some good music to boot.

They have a great outdoor patio on the water. A huge menu for a small bar. Appetizers and pizza were great. Weather you get all the toppings or just one the price is the same.

2 disabled people who went to have lunch there were refused service for no stated reason - recommend going elsewhere - like Annie's for example. Female manager lost this local business a lot of money! Never going again.

We drive by here all the time but have never stopped until one of our friends was singing and playing his guitar here a few days ago. It was a pretty nice day and there were people on the deck and the servers were very nice and the food we had was good too. They have a nice clientele. We... More

We were running through town and needed to pick up some grub. Ordered burgers from Buzz's to go. The food was awesome. Can't complain there. However, the inside of the restaurant smelled like cigarette smoke, which was not very appetizing. I can't see us eating there if it's like that often. Would pick up food there again, though.

We recently went to Buzz's for the first time with friends. It was a Saturday night and crowded. The service was good, the food was good but it was difficult to talk. Still, we all had a great time and will return soon.

The sandwiches are off the hook here! Very filling and very tasty. You will not be dissapointed if you swind in for a item off their menu. The beer is expensive and the Mac-n-Jack flavor was very off when I was there last time. So stopping in for food and one drink isn't too bad of a deal. They have... More
