the waterfront. Kailua Beach Park is the scenic location you will be dining near, and it's close proximity to the famous Lanikai beach (which is widely recognized as the world's most scenic beach) should provide you with an idea of the kind of scenery you should expect to enjoy over dinner hear. As the name suggests, they are a popular preparer of Steaks, offering up specially broiled cuts of meat that are right up there with some of Oahu's more popular steakhouses. This is one of the more romantic restaurants on Oahu, and certainly the tops on this side of the island. For a solid meal and even better setting, don't miss Buzz's while in Kailua.

A wonderful place to eat right across from Kailua Beach. Pricey, but good food.

Beach side classic steak house built around a tree. Perfect for dinner or for a Pau hana (happy hour). Walk down the beach from the vacation house and a pupu (appetizer)

Best fish in Kailua. Mahi Mahi, Mai Tai's, Kailua Passions are to die for. Good salad bar

Make dinner reservations, even on a Weekday evening. 15 minutes ahead is fine.

Great food and friendly service in a relaxed atmosphere. Known for their mai tais. Personal favorite - teriyaki steak. Nice salad bar and warm rolls.

This was the best meal we had in Oahu. The scallops were second to none. It's a local favourite & it was busy every night. The seafood is just great.

With a party of 8, waiting for a table was going to take too long, so we opted for pupus. There is a small seating area right at the entrance which was perfectly comfortable for all of us to talk and enjoy some nice appetizers. It turns out that most all of their entrees can be ordered pupu style, so we selected a variety of items from both menus. Food was very tasty and nicely presented, but I think pricy, especially the drinks. Our sever was friendly and attentive. Even though their location is very convenient to Kailua beach, they'd probably not like you to come in wearing beachwear covered in sand. And there's really no view of the ocean.
-- Parking is along the right side of the restaurant and pretty large, but it was filled so an easy alternative is the beach parking lot or along the highway.

Buzz's has been a Kailua institution for more than 50 years. This place is one of the only restaurants near the water in Kailua. They serve steak and fish. Its expensive (about what you would pay at a Morton's on the mainland, but not quite as good), but its fun with a real island flavor. They are famous for their Mai Tais - they mix them super strong, so figure out your driving situation before you get started. We had a New York Strip, which was tasty, and a lobster tail, which was also good. All main courses come with access to the salad bar, which was good. The service was good and it was kid-friendly (with crayons and the like). Great spot to hit up.

Find dining options are slim pickings in windward Oahu, but Buzz's Original Steak House is one option that visitors ought to consider. More than the steaks, the atmosphere here is absolutely breathtaking, with great views of the adjacent beach park providing a romantic feel to the establishment. Unfortunately, the dining area can be a bit crowded, and when that happens even the most spectacular of views cant break through the crowds. Still, if you aren't shy about paying top dollar for steak, this restaurant has a lot going for it; just hope you go on a day when it's less crowded and get a good seat.
