We've been here a dozen times or so in the last few years, and there's no question that the owners are pleasant and make every effort to see that their guests are well-cared for. The servers, however, are another matter; and the food just isn't anything to write home about. For Farmville, this pitiful attempt at a restaurant is all there is in town, but by any other standard of fine dining, there's definitely something buzzing around the overpriced food ... if it weren't for friends who live there and love it, we'd never have returned for recent visits!

Worse, there's no website with the menu or hours, no specials listed or announced, etc. -- making it pretty tough to plan anything in advance. If you are stuck living in Farmville, it may be all there is, but it's definitely not worth the trip from Greenville ... or anywhere else for that matter.

The Buzz Around offers a lovely setting in a nice clean atmosphere but best of all is the food. We were a group of 14 people and everyone was very pleased with the menu and the food. The selection was extensive, imagination was used as opposed to just an everyday boring offering. The large variety of vegetables was pleasing and even people who don't normally eat bread did that night.

However, all that being said there is one negative. The piano player is so loud it makes it difficult to have conversations. The music would have been wonderful as soft background music but once it interferes with conversation it becomes too loud.

Still worth going back to which we plan to do mid December. The group of 14 are from NY, NJ and northern Va and are used to an extensive list of restaurants and not always easy to please but everyone loved the Buzz Around. We were there in November 2009.

My fiance and I have tried several times to have lunch or dinner at this place, but the hours, which are not posted, are pretty limited. Fortunately, we were able to make it in for dinner, last night.

On a chilly, rainy night, this was a wonderful place to eat. Walking into the restaurant is like walking into a sunny day. The decor is unique, with giant sunflower pots hanging upside down from the high ceiling, yellow walls, and light hardwood floors. We were seated right next to the piano, but were still able to hold intimate conversations comfortably.

The company was very friendly, and the staff were very warm and welcoming.

The menu is one of those with fewer dishes than other restaurants, but each item is unique and, judging by the dishes we tried, very well made. We, as non-dessert people, even ended up splitting a brownie sundae.

There were several other dishes I'd love to try, and we'll definitely be going back again, soon. I only wish the hours weren't so limited, and more available for us to plan dinner or lunch ahead of time.

Buzz around definitely deserves a buzz for the unique menu selection. In addition to having your traditional soups, salads, and sandwiches, they have a small selection of honey dishes in honor of the name. A definitely worth trying restaurant if ever in the area.
