Always take guests visiting me in Kailua to Buzz's Original Steak House in Kailua. Ambiance & atmoshpere across Kailua Beach is unbeatable. Food is great. Staff friendly and accommodating. Recommend as a must have dinner spot. Even the US President Obama eats here.

Yummy fish and seafood, even a local beef option. Delicious! John was our waiter I believe, and he was great.

This restaurant had a prime location by the beach, because of this they get lots of business so be prepared to wait. We had a baby with us, but I wouldn't necessarily call it a family friendly place. It seemed more like a friend hangout place. The atmosphere was that of a locals bar, even though I'm sure most of... More

We came here on a Saturday night with a reservation and there were people outside wanting to get in. As we had a reservation, we got shown to a table right away.

Good prices for good taste! Nice area next to Kailua Beach. Presidents Clinton and Obama liked to dine here. Cozy and informal, you can eat outside or inside. Go early or call for reservations if you go later. I like the teriyaki steak sandwich with tempura fries!!!

This eatery has it all: great drinks, great food, great service. For a Sunday brunch, the wait can be more than you would wish for, but once you sit down, you know, it was all worth the wait.

Buzz's at Kailua is a usual stop due to its convenience across the street from the beach. Can get busy, but the food is good and servers are cordial. Worth a stop while in the area.

Pretty good value for your buck here when considering typical prices in Hawaii. Food quality and service are excellent. Would definitely recommend doing dinner once, and just a casual patio drink / appetizer (limited menu on deck). Fun spot near great beaches.

I had Ceasuar salad with chicken ( ask for more dressing), Thai chicken salad( great needs more dressing), fish sandwich (yum) , teri chicken burger(yum) with fries.
