“Blah...Drive to the Kailua one...”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

Don't waste your time fighting traffic to get to this one...Kailua's food is better, view is better and the traffic's less.

“My buzz about Buzz's is not great!”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

I had read good reviews about Buzz's and recommended it to friends. It was about 5:00 pm when we arrived. They asked if we had reservations, we did not. Only 2 tables had customers. Hoping to enjoy their views, we asked for a table with a sunset view. They said they were all reserved! Some of the booths have very tall walls around them - we were given one of those and could only see out to the east. The special drinks were good, so was the salad bar. The rest of the meal was nice and generous. My recommendations for Buzz's to make it better are: greet with kindness, scrub the bathrooms, take down all of the booth walls or at least lower all of them to give every table a view (they do have very comfortable seats!), decide who is serving the table, speed up the drink service. By the time we had left, none of the tables with views had been filled.

“Good food, great view”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

I have been going to this restaurant for decades! It is one of the nicer restaurants in the neighborhood with a view of Pearl Harbor from the tables by the window. They have a great salad bar and the lettuce is always fresh & crisp. They also have grilled French bread that you can help yourself to next to the salad bar. Ideal place for a date or a group gathering.

“Prime Rib was wonderful...”
Reviewed December 22, 2010

Our family went to Buzz's on a Monday night without reservations for dinner and we were seated in a few minutes. The restaurant is very nice and we were seated at a booth. All entrees are served with a salad bar, the salad bar had about 25 items and everything was fresh.

Our server was attentive, refilling our drinks at least 4 times. The food was delicious and quite big servings. We had a few different items, the prime rib was soft and juicy, the steak and lobster was cooked perfect and melted in your mouth.

We were stuffed and did not eat dessert, we will be back here for dinner again.

Only downfall is the parking, the lot was full when we arrived and had to circle around.

“Average to medicore”
Reviewed October 12, 2010

Ordered steak and it was dissapointing. Well marinated and cooked but you could tell it was lower grade meat bought at a supermarket and quite small compared to other steak house's. Poor wine selection. Salad bar was good, next time i might just come for the salad. Great views, try to get a window seat to make the most out of this establishment.
