Description: Established in 1967 In 1967, Jerry & Eileen Macdonald opened Buzz's Wharf Restaurant in the Ma'alaea Small Boat Harbor, where it still stands today. They shared 30 successful years in the restaurant business on Maui and Honolulu. In 1993, the Macdonald's retired and the next generation took over. The American Cuisine with an Island flavor continues on. Mrs. Macdonald's French Tahitian roots contributed to many of the unique menu items. Their signatures dish the " Prawns Tahitian" being the most popular.Buzz's Wharf Restaurant recently celebrated 45 years of operation, and is one of Maui's Long Standing restaurants. As a landmark in Ma'alaea Bay Harbor, Buzz's continues, year after year, to greet and extend their ho'okipa (hospitality) to both newcomers and their loyal local and visitor clientele.

We stopped at Buzz's for lunch with the kids. Turns out that the kids eat free with our meal purchases. Great value at $17 for fresh caught mahi mahi and fries. We had a few drinks with lunch which always drives the cost up but this was certainly some of the best value for our food dollar that we've found!

We met friends here a 4:00 for pupus and drinks. Food and service were both excellent. Good view of the harbour. Convenient parking. Prices, esp. with the happy hour discount, were very reasonable. The "slider" dessert was a treat.

We had dinner and drinks here. Beautiful view. I had the terriaki steak and garlic mashed potatoes. Both were excellent. I ordered a pina colada and it really wasn't very good. It had a funny taste to it. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals and drinks. We probably wouldn't come back as it was quite expensive for what you got.

Ordered Panko Deep Fried Shrimp and french fries and the shrimp was tough. Very disappointed. Also very noisy. Sound now carries. Has been renovated and looks very clean service was very good. Use to be a restaurant we always looked forward to going to each year when we return to Maui. The last three years it is not as good as it use to be. Change in ownership?
