Local classic beachy restaurant. Open for lunch and dinner. While the ambiance stays the same, the menu and vibe changes for the better at dinner. Buzz's is really connected with local farmers and fishermen. The fresh catch can be prepared 3 ways for everyones favorites. The lamb is always a favorite!! But............ the salad bar always fills me up!!! Always... More

It was okay but not all that. They use Bacardi versus local rum. The food was okay but don't think we'll be back. One and done.

A friend suggested Buzz's for a mid-afternoon get-together lunch so we went. We walked in and were greeted by the hostess who told us that the restaurant was in between lunch and dinner ... she said it was Happy Hour and that we could have appetizers and drinks. That was fine. Our server told us that it wasn't Happy Hour.... More

We went here to celebrate a birthday. It's popular so make sure you book a table. Friendly staff helped us navigate the menu. The steaks were great, served with broccoli. The salad bar was average but fresh. I enjoyed the big island beer served cold. The calamari was huge with big fries.the tab is attached to give you some idea... More

Thoroughly enjoyable with reasonable prices for Oahu and a very nice dinner selection. A casual atmosphere that is obviously very popular with both the local crowd and the tourists. We would definitely go again!

Very good food but we found the openface King Crab sandwich to be a little small for the price. The chicken caeser salad sandwich was good but a little dry. The Mai-Tai was the strongest drink ever. Wait staff were very efficient and friendly even on a busy Saturday lunch.

We love this place. Don't understand some of the comments people have made. The service was outstanding and we had three meat entrees and one fish. All cooked perfectly. Salad bar was more the adequate and nice location. Not the cheapest and perhaps "not" the best for "foodies", but not let those snobs stop you from enjoying a good meal,... More

We had lunch here two days in a row. Was so good the first time that I wanted to introduce it to our travel companions. Had the catch of the day fish burger the first day and the crab sandwich the next. Both were delicious and fresh tasting. Had to wait about 15 minutes for a table both times but... More

Buzz's has an incredibly beautiful setting just across from the beach with water views from all tables outside. The food is very fresh, tastefully seasoned, beautifully presented and truly outstanding. The wait staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. A great experience.
