Description: Whatever you do, don’t leave Buzz till your last night. Besides their à la carte menu they have nightly specials. Buzz has been operating for 12 years and Pat Bowden and Chef Marie who have worked together for 37 years have been successful in all their restaurants. Pat has created a restaurant and bar with a warm ambience, friendly atmosphere and lots of charm. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating and as the name implies, is abuzz with activity. Food is presented on dishes in varying shapes, sizes and colours. Buzz is known for Seafood; Fresh Tuna, Potato Crusted Snapper, Baked Mahi Mahi filled with Avocado and Shrimp, Swordfish and a variety of Shrimp, Scallop & Lobster dishes (in season). House specialities include Homemade Raviolis, Lamb Shanks, West Indian Pepperpot, Rack of Lamb & Black Angus Beef hand trimmed and served with a variety of sauces. Homemade Desserts include a Trio of Crème Brûlée, Warm Apple Crêpes, Chocolate Mousse and Banana Pecan Bread Pudding. Mervin the Bartender will whip up fun cocktails like our “famous” Mango Dacquiri, Buzzing Bee Stinger and Buzz Cooler. Not only does Mervin keep the guests amused with his “chat”, he also keeps the children amused with his “card tricks.”

“Surprisingly upbeat restaurant- Buzz”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2011

Our concierge recommended Buzz restaurant from a wide selection other restaurants in Rodney Bay Area. We were very pleasantly surprised by the service, food and evening some entertainment for the evening (Wednesday evening). Seafood dishes were tender and garnished tastily. Appetizers were tasty, zesty and fresh. Would highly recommend! Not too pricy and one of the better restaurants in the area -we were disappointed by another one close by. So pays to listen to your concierge!

“Best food in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2011

The restaurant tables are either in the garden or inside a restaurant with an open front. Either provides a comfortable eating environment on a fairly humid evening. Originally we chose to sit outside, but the candle on the table was not enough for me to read the menu well enough, so we asked to move inside. The staff were extremely accommodating and moved us to a nice table inside.
We ordered crab and lobster cakes to share as a starter to share, which were cooked from fresh and full of flavour. The fish we had for main course were yellowfin tuna and swordfish, both were melt in the mouth and accompanied by superbly prepared vegetables.
The wine list had a good enough variety for the menu.
All of the staff were friendly, attentive and professional.
Loved the place!
