When you think calamari you think the little rings for appetizers right? Not here. When you get the calamari dinner, you get basically what amounts to a calamari fillet. Interested? Try it. I know you'll love it! As far as the atmosphere, it says casual but I felt a little under-dressed in my shorts and beach shirt. And its CROWDED... More

Our host recommended this place for their good food. You need to make reservations in advance otherwise waiting can be a pain since many local residents like to eat here. The place is small and casual, the salad bar has great variety but the highlight was the calamari dinner. This is not fried calamari rings...you have to try it.

Very nice upper scale resturant right across from Kailua Beach. Food was very good. It's Hawaii and on the beach so expect a bit of a premium price.

We recently dined at Buzz's with some local friends. This is their neighborhood 'go to' and we walked their from their house on the beach. Being from a large, mainland city, I have a different idea of what a steak house should be. This is very Hawaiian style, with outdoor spaces and a nice patio. But the inside does have... More

This could have been a five rating but one of the reasons I kept it a four was how we were greeted...a straight faced, annoyed "Can I help you?" And a "wait outside until I see if a table is available"...again, straight faced. It wasn't friendly, almost a turn off. Aside from that...food and drinks were a five! Had the... More

This restaurant was recommended by a local and we were very pleased. The food was tasty and moderately priced. If you want a table with a view, reservations are a must, even for lunch.

We visited here for lunch on a busy holiday. We were unable to sit outside because we had not made a reservation so we settled for an inside table. Greeting was friendly and our waitress came over quickly for a drink order. We had a hard time deciding between the specials and all the delicious items on the menu. Finally... More

We stopped here on the way back from the beach. We were in between lunch and dinner so the menu was very limited. Their Mai Tai is good and strong, 1 is probably all you need. They have a nice little patio at front with a great view. Lots of parking in their lot but the entrance is easily missed... More

always a great place, comfortable and a great salad bar. Right across from Kailua Beach. The restaurant has a real island feel.

This is one of our all-time favorite places to eat at the beach. They have a pretty good salad bar and the catch of the day can make a good choice. I particularly like the ono for its firm texture and mild flavor
