It was 4:30, too early for dinnner for us, so we had pupus and drinks - the pina coladas were wonderful, the spring rolls aand wontons were good. Buzz's is always busy, but this was a 3 day weekend so they were slammed. I asked for a fork for Joey instead of chop sticks and it never arrived ....

This place has absolutely the worse service for visitors! We had reserved a table for 7:45 pm but when we got there they DIDN'T GIVE US OUR TABLE! They told us it was too crazy with their regulars and we could sit out in the waiting area and order. FYI, there are only some benches and no tables to set... More

What's great find! Service was very casual but good and the food was delicious. We both started with their soup of the day, mushroom bisque, and it was great. I had the pork chop which was wonderful and my friend has the calamari meal which was outstanding. Huge portion, very tender and flavorful.

Friends were visiting from the Mainland. After an enjoyable drive around the scenic shoreline to Kailua, we had a delicious, well-prepared, leisurely meal topped with some great local desserts. Our after-lunch/dinner meal walk across the street to Kailua Bay beach was the cherry on top of a wonderful afternoon with old friends!

My wife and I had lunch at Buzz' and the food and service were outstanding. It was my second time there and her first (and my first was great also). The burgers are all good, the drinks are strong, and service staff always smiling and helpful. Buzz' is a small place, so if going for lunch I recommend eating early,... More

We found Buzz's quite by accident, we were told Kailua was a beautiful place, took a drive and came across Buzz's so we went in for Lunch, great staff, welcoming, helpful & friendly. Food was fantastic, Mai Tai's were the best and the atmosphere & decor was great, gave us a true sense of Hawaii past & present.

We ate here for lunch and had poke, the fresh fish burrito and the ahi wrap and each one was delicious. The atmosphere feels very local and Hawaiian. It can get really busy and usually the wait isn't too long. You can sit outside and order drinks while you wait.

Great place to dine, the food and service excellent, a refreshing change from fast food outlets in Kailua. Cocktails were amazing and very strong...

I really enjoy this place albeit funky and sometimes loud due to the low ceilings and a normally full house. I find the food to be ample, of very good quality and satisfying. Certainly a throw-back to "steak and potatoes" amongst the trendy "fusion" type restaurants particularly here - although several fresh fish options are offered . Nothing wrong with... More

The lunch menu is varied and reasonably priced. The daily specials are amazing. I went for lunch and a few days later for dinner. The lunch my family had was so good! The Friday lunch special grilled ham and cheese is really good. For dinner you have a choice of fish or steak. All with a salad bar that is... More
