Stopped for lunch and wasn't very impressed with the food. We all had sandwiches and the group thought it could have been better. The chicken was dry and tasteless, the burger was super moist with a strange sauce and the soup was bland. The waitstaff did a great job keeping drinks filled and checking back to see if we needed...

some members of our party were playing on the beach and got rained out by a brief rain/wind storm. They took refuge at Buzz's for a beverage and decided to stay for lunch and called to invite us to join them. Very close to the beach (which our party members enjoyed greatly). Food was good. I had the Swordfish Fish... More

Our daughter took us for a tour of "her" side of the island, insisting that we must go to Buzz's for lunch. Parking is a challenge, and we had to walk a block or so. The place was full, but our wait was short. The decor is typical grass shack and surfing motif with many dramatic photos of surfers in... More

We were disappointed. Friends of ours told us they go weekly for the fish. Only two kinds of fish were available, swordfish and marlin. The three of us had three different preparations (Chinese, grilled with lemon and butter, and hibachi). All of the fish came out rather dry. The bread served prior to the entree was soft inside and out... More

This was my first time here. We had already eaten lunch, but thought a drink and dessert would be fun. They do have a limited menu after the lunch period, and you can only sit on the patio, which is nice. Our server was friendly and funny. We ordered the mango cheesecake, key lime pie, and the tiramisu. One of... More

Nice stop along our drive around the southern side of the island. Enjoyed our lunch but as far as prices go it was a tad expensive for a lunch.

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.
