Buzz has been operating for 12 years and Pat Bowden and Chef Marie who have worked together for 37 years have been successful in all their restaurants. Pat has created a restaurant and bar with a warm ambience, friendly atmosphere and lots of charm. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating and as the name implies, is abuzz with activity. Food is presented on dishes in varying shapes, sizes and colours. Buzz is known for Seafood; Fresh Tuna, Potato Crusted Snapper, Baked Mahi Mahi filled with Avocado and Shrimp, Swordfish and a variety of Shrimp, Scallop & Lobster dishes (in season).

Not only does Mervin keep the guests amused with his “chat”, he also keeps the children amused with his “card tricks.”

Having opted for an all-inc package at our hotel purely for ease we were looking for a dinner that was exciting rather than functional. Buzz has the whole package - the setting is intimate and cool, the service is friendly and smooth, with our server offering personal recommendations, and the food and wine were high quality and tasty. We started with cocktails and chose a lovely fresh gruner veltliner to accompany our food. Tempura shrimp - awesome. My husband's 'crack' bread was addictive as the name suggests and our mains of king fish and steak also exceeded expectations. We were too full for dessert but the choice looked tempting. A smooth operation for a special occasion dinner.

We had been advised by a friend to go to this restaurant and we were not let down. The food, specifically the shrimp was cooked perfectly and tasted so good. Would definitely recommend.

Dear Nicole,
We also thank your friend for the referral and we hope to see you again! Our new menu is soon out but we are leaving the shrimp dish at it is quite popular. Thank you for reviewing us.

We loved having dinner here on our first night, the lights in the backyard were so pretty. The service was top notch and the food delicious. We had the manager's special cocktail and I must say it was the best cocktail we had on the Island. We are animal lovers and also enjoyed the company of the cat that we fed our left overs to since the portions were huge.
Thanks for a wonderful evening.

Hello D3261FW,
Thank you for choosing us on your first night on island as we know there are plenty of great choices in Rodney Bay. The cocktail you had was our house rum punch and has quite a following amongst those in the know, delicious and packs a punch!

We dined out here approximately 4 times over our two week holiday and what can I say but its amazing, the staff are attentive without being in your face, the food was freshly cooked and everything was perfect.

Even our fussy 8 year old loved visiting BUZZ.

Hi there,
When a client returns multiple times we know that we have hit the right chord with them and their preferences (even for the more discerning 8 year old palate)! Thank you for taking the time to review us! You rock!

We visited St. Lucia in August. We dined two evenings at Buzz Seafood & Grill. It was a very convenient walk from our resort and came highly recommended by the staff at Bay Gardens Resort.
This is an outside dining establishment; you have the choice of eating underneath a huge tree or in the open cove within the building structure.
We had several very friendly and courteous attendants to take our drink & food order and see to our dining experience. Jackie, Marissa and Michelle were knowledgable, pleasant and provided service with a smile.
This restaurant has choices for seafood & steak lovers as well as vegetarians; great for blending if you have variations in pallate.
My husband dined on the King Prawns in herb butter sauce while I tried the Seafood Creole; both were amazing.

The food is well prepared and presented. It had good portions and you felt satisfied when finished. They have a great wine selection as well as full bar for all sorts of cocktails and concoctions.
We were greeted by the Managers (Matthew the first time; Marissa the second). They truly want to ensure each table is having a great experience. The fact that we went a second evening is proof that we enjoyed ourselves.
They have some unique and delectable desserts, too. My husband loved the banana & chocolate spring rolls while I had the Caribbean crème brulee. Awesome way to finish our meal.

Cannot say enough about the great staff and chef. Jackie helped make recommendations on where to shop and get reasonable priced souvenirs. You can tell the pride they have of St. Lucia and are happy to chat with you if you engage them.

We do plan to return to St. Lucia; we will certainly be back to Buzz's. It left a great impression with us.
