My son and I stopped here after the beach on the recommendation from our concierge. The service was awful,almost like they didn't care if we were there. My chair was back to back with the next table,very uncomfortable. I felt squished and I'm 5'5" 128lbs so if your a larger person you won't fit. The food was alright,nothing memorable. Skip... More

One of our favorite places to eat in Kailua. Great location, right across from the beach park...spend the day swimming and then walk over to have lunch or dinner; just cover up with a towel. We always order the calamari appetizer as soon as we are seated. This is our favorite thing on the menu. Tender on the inside, crisp... More

This restaurant has a nice outside patio menu for drinks and appetizers when they are changing from lunch to dinner. I had the refresher and it was good. The prices are reasonable and portions are good. It's so close to the beach and the service was very nice. Try it out.

Family, Friendly, Open Air, Excellent Time. You will be tempted to fill up at the salad bar ... save room for your meal. Service was terrific! Across from the beach and canal. The only issue was parking at the restaurant, however; lots of parking across the street at the beach park.

Not sure if the restaurant depends so much on tourists that it doesn't care if patrons will be back or not. Service was mixed between excellent, rude and cocky. Fish dishes average or "just take it off the menu please" Beautiful setting, nice old time feel of the place, but what happened to pride in what you do and what... More

Had lunch at Buzz's with family members. Very nice setting across the street from the beach park with a beautiful view of the aqua waters and white sandy beaches of Kailua. Buzz's was built around large, sprawling trees that protrude through the floor, rooms and roof in parts of the dining area, providing an exclamation point on outdoor dining. Tables... More

Buzz's is the right concept, just not done very well. It is next to a busy road on a canal you don't really see from the restaurant. They haven't updated the interior in years or it's just that bad. It smells around the salad bar, not a good smell. Sitting outdoor could be really nice if it wasn't right next... More

Second time to stop here while in Kailua! Shrimp scampi salad and lanai ka fruit salad were excellent! Teriyaki steak was awesome! Topped off with flourless chocolate cake with pomegranate sauce! Very nice! Now to go across the street and kayak!!

Quite a few people told me to try this restaurant, so we did. It's not a big restaurant but has indoor and outdoor seating. Most of the items are steakhouse style, meaning you order your meat or fish entree, choose your method of cooking, and your sauce. The entrees come with salad bar, but while its a pretty good salad... More

Buzz's is right across the road from the public beach. It's totally casual and has a great beach you, fun vibe. I wasn't crazy about my fish sandwich and my son didn't love his fish burrito but others in our group enjoyed their meals. The wait can be long...it's a big place but fills up with hungry beach-goers. The only... More
