Friend and I enjoyed our dinner here. The servers are friendly and the food is good. The salad bar is a nice touch. Even though it has "steak house" in the name, the seafood is also very good. Prices are moderate.

Saw Buzz's on Tripadvisor. My wife and I were right across the street at Kailua beach and decided to give it a try. It's like any beach bar/restaurant you've ever been to. Basically, bar food with a twist. Our waiter was bad. No substitutes on...More

Try the pork chops with mango chutney. TO DIE FOR. Surprisingly good salad bar. The restaurant itself could use an upgrade. I'm guessing that's part of the restaurant's charm. Buzz's is more than 50 years old. Definitely worth a try if you are in Kailua...More

Buzz's purports to serve fresh sea food from the island. We went there after a day at Kailua beach. There were six of us in our group. We ordered six different dishes plus several appetizers. So let's call it nine dishes total. Only one of...More

We ordered 3 drinks while we waited for our reserved table. One was supposed to be a margarita, and looked like one, with a salted rim. But it was just sour. I drank less than a fourth, and when we were seated I told the...More

Aloha, John! I was the manager on duty that evening and I do remember your party. In regards to your drink, I told the waitress that I would gladly take it off your tab. Our Freshy is one of our most popular drinks - its...More

Alpha Garry! Unfortunately we do not have the space to accommodate parties of 25 people. Pearl City is the best location for large groups. At Lanikai we do our best to get large parties in but it wouldn't be together or in a... More
