We ate dinner one weekday evening while staying in Lanikai. We drove by the restaurant daily for the better part of a week and it was always busy so we assumed that it was a good choice given how popular it appear. Boy were we wrong. The place was very busy with people waiting for tables. The food was run... More

Stopped in for lunch as we passed it on the way to Kailua beach. Buzz's is located directly across from Kailua Beach park and is a handy place to park while visiting the beach (as the beach park's lot was quite congested). We were seated promptly in an air conditioned area behind the bar, as the lanai and open air... More

Buzz's has been in business for over 50 years for good reason. Good menu selection as well as a beautiful salad bar.

This restaurant has awesome steak, and sea food. I've been here twice, and enjoyed the food. Good service! There dessert tray looked yummy too. I've had there very strong MiTi, it was ok.

In my 40+ years of eating steak, this was the best I've ever eaten. The flavor, tenderness, and atmosphere will always be remembered. save room for the cheesecake!

The atmosphere carries the day here. It's just worth it to be close to the beach, having a beer and and decent food. Nothing spectacular but the authentic feel. Worth going to to slow down, get a feed on and slide out the beach.

I met several friends here to celebrate an engagement recently. We were fortunate to corral several tables on the deck, and I sampled many of the appetizers. All were tasty and well-presented. I ordered their original Mai Tai, but it was too much alcohol for my taste (the server did warn me, so it was my own fault). Be advised... More

The staff here are great but its always full so book in advanced! The menu is pretty much steak, salads and fish of the day. The menu is alright and the food is average for the high costs. However, the cocktails are fantastic and the atmosphere is great for friends to get together over happy hour.

Parking is limited. Environment is cozy and comfortable. Chairs and tables look a little used but it's kinda romantic.
