Love eating under the "Tree" but definitely need reservations. There is no guarantee for that table! Parking can be difficult so you may need to park across the street at Kailua Beach Park. Our favorite choice is the fish of the day, opah (moonfish) or Opakapaka (pink snapper), cooked Chinese style. It is so moist! Buzz's is a great place... More

My wife and I had dinner at this ocean side restaurant. I decided my wife needed a little emotional boost after the very long and arduous legs of our flight from Florida, so I checked fine dining as filter for fine dining and Buzz's was the only listing for Kailua. The food was very good. My meal was the special... More

Don't miss a trip to Buzz's, across the street from beautiful Kailua Beach. Husband and I just had a wonderful lunch of fresh Ahi tuna. He had the Grilled Ahi while I opted for a delicious Ahi fish burger with wasabi aioli. Both were terrific! We then splurged with a Banana Rum Tiramisu dessert. Yummy! This is our last day... More

The restaurant has that up north Wisconsin supper club feel to it. We stopped for lunch as we were passing through and got seated right away (inside). My wife had the fried fish which was tasty and I had the burger which tasted like one you would get at a concession stand. The fries were soggy and Luke warm. What... More

What a great lunch we had that included a tasty Rueben with pastrami. We also had the fish Burger with spicy mayo that was dined perfectly with fries crispy and hot. Recommended for a great experience with a attentive staff.

Recommended this place by an uber driver and was not disappointed! The steaks are to die for. Salad buffet available but we were so full we didn't even need it. The baked squid and Poke was sensational. Gentlemen, make sure to wear shirts with sleeves otherwise they will give you a shirt to wear.

I had there the best fish in Hawaii and appreciated very strong mai tai. They have nice deserts as well. Definitively very nice option in this part of the island. The beautiful beach is in the walking distance. There is no problem with parking as there is a big beach parking lot across the street.

Pretty casual place right across the street from the beach. Burgers, fish and chips, seafood, salads, steaks, good food. Plenty to choose from. Casual attire but no beach ware for dinner. Good price point.

After 15 restaurant visits in Kailua this was going to be the best and we really looked forward to it. The scampi was perfectly grilled, but the rest was a bit disappointing. Though there were not to many guests, we seemed to be forgotten several times.

Buzz's is an institution in these parts. It's a steakhouse in a land of fish restaurants. And it's a good steakhouse with good fish to boot. The menu is Old Traditional on both accounts. Meat eaters will appreciate the portions. But the star of the show is the bar. Kailua is Ft Lauderdale without snakes and gators. The inland waterways... More
