Buzz's original seak house is absolutely great and is the best restaurant in the Kailua / Lanakai area. We were there for 10 days and went probably 7 times. We loved the fish and the meal includes a all you can eat, very good, salad bar. Would go back in a heartbeat.

A crowded, happening place. We were seated in the bar which was very loud and why I wouldn't give this five stars. Our waitress was fantastic. Our food was good. We enjoyed the salad bar, especially the pickled onions. They serve the white wine way too cold. Unless you are a wine aficionado you probably won't notice. Small complaints aside,... More

When we were there it was crowded so we had to wait for a table in the bar area. There was plenty of sitting in the bar and the bartender was fabulous so we ended up eating there. The ahi wrap was outstanding and my husband ordered the prime rib special. His was a thin cut and a little over... More

Everyone said it was a good place to go & eat however they had a good fish burrito & steak on a stick was good. But the service wasn't what it should have been! Our waiter didn't attend to our table very well in that another waiter/server came to check in us. Our water glasses were never filled after the... More

Not just about Steak but you can do no better than Buzz's when you are in the mood for a delicious steak....or lamb....or teriyaki chicken....or any number of specialities that Buzz's has honed to perfection. The staff is relatively young but imbued with a team spirit and enthusiasm to serve their patrons. The vintage Hawaiian style of the Kailua/Lani Kai... More

We visited the restaurant on a Monday evening around 6pm and the restaurant was already bustling. We ordered steaks and had a soup and salad from the bar. The food was excellent and service very friendly and efficient.

Great food and a choice between bar food and something a little different, as well as some healthy alternatives, too. Great service!

This was our first time eating here. We had lunch and orders the Jack Daniel burgers with seasoned fries, Cesar salad and clam chowder. Everything was delicious. Ordered hot teas and Sprite. The servers were quick and attentive. The places itself is like stepping into the past with the lighting, decorations and overall setup. Liked the fact that's it's so... More
