We came here for the $5 martini Wednesday and really enjoyed it. They had a lot of different martinis in addition to the classic. I've read comments saying they have no alcohol in them (or very little) and I personally found them to be just...More

Just had dinner at "The Buzz". It was fantastic! Started dinner with a special martini. It was excellent! Then had a curry dish. Even though this is not an Indian restaurant, the curry was superb! Reasonably priced too!
