I never even was seated after waiting an hour and a half, with 90% of the tables open. I was a single diner, ready for a full course dinner. The hostess demanded I sit at the bar, and I told her I was handicapped with...More

When former President Obama is in town, you might find him eating here. He enjoys this area. We had for lunch their grilled fish entries. Location and food is very good.

I like Buzz's Original Steakhouse! This is a great alternative to all the over-priced restaurants in Honolulu and Waikiki. Although on the complete opposite side of the island from Honolulu, it is just a quick 45 minute drive to get to Buzz's, via the Pali...More

Interesting twist on a salad bar, but did enjoy the avocado in it. Not much butter comes with the bread. A bit overpriced for what you get especially since you did not even get potatoes with the steak. Good location next to the beach. The...More

The cocktails were very good. Look out for the hostess if you want a table between lunch and dinner. We were rudely treated on more than one occasion. There is a limited place to be seated if you say no to dinner and no vegan...More

Buzz's came highly recommended, so we went with anticipation. Under no circumstances would I recommend this restaurant. The salad bar was unappealing and the dressings flavorless. The fish, grilled and served simply with lemon, was unremarkable. The special, New York strip steak, was untrimmed; one...More

Buzz is great for their meat and seafood. Always packed during lunch and dinner. You have to go early if you did not make reservations. A hit with locals and tourists.

Just wonderful. Great salad bar and small menu with lots of winners. Staff is incredibly nice. Good drinks. Even bought the beach towel this time around :-). We keep going back. Love the unpretentious atmosphere.

Alpha Garry! Unfortunately we do not have the space to accommodate parties of 25 people. Pearl City is the best location for large groups. At Lanikai we do our best to get large parties in but it wouldn't be together or in a... More
