After reading all the great reviews about Buzz's my boyfriend and I were excited to try Buzz's. Unfortunately, we were highly disappointed. We waited for about 30 minutes to be seated and while they do offer drinks outside, getting the waitresses attention was extremely hard and then the drinks took forever to get to us. We were seated in a... More

We were very excited to go to Buzz's, but in the end we were let down. I hate spending top dollar for below average food. The staff was excellent. The food however came out cool like it sat for a while, one pasta dish was so cold we sent it back. I had the Hawaiian ribeye there was nothing special... More

BFRD (stands for Big F****** Rum Drink) to start. It lives up to its name, in case youre wondering. It has 3 shots of rum and they only allow 3 BFRDs per person. You won't need 3, trust me. Hubs had an old fashioned, said it was excellent. We both had fish specials. He had tuna; I had hebi. Both... More

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. It seems that steak is popular on Saturday night with great prime rib while my partner had the rib eye. He didn't like his as well as I... More

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!!!

Thank Warren N
