Great food and great service! I was most impressed with their cleaning of the tables with paper towels and being incredibly sanitary. Support this business! They take this pandemic we are in serious.
We come here everytime we visit the island. This time the food was average. They were out of the coconut shrimp and beets for their salad at 3pm (pretty early in the day if you ask me). We ordered fish tacos & (2) fish & chips. One fish & chips came out great and the fish was white and fresh. The fish for the other fish & chips & tacos were much darker meat and very fishy tasting. Did not seem as fresh.
Service was also average but, we'll assume they were short staffed due to Covid.
I made these reservations at Brenneckes, a couple of weeks ago before leaving California for Kauai, because I thought a Sunday Brunch with our family would be fun during our 1 week stay in Poipu. I think that we have only eaten there once several years ago while staying at the Marriott Waiohai Resort, and I didn’t realize that no one else in our family had eaten there. Much to all of our delight, it was a wonderful experience. They had a nice long table set up for 10 of us, we were greeted warmly. Our server was Zachary, and he was a great waiter, and had such a pleasant personality, that it made for an excellent experience. The food was also very good. We all thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday Brunch. I would highly recommend checking it out!
Food was good and it was great to be there for a Sunday brunch. Was quiet and enjoyable with a great breeze. Server was good as well. I expected food to be a lot better (pancakes were a little dry) but it was still good.
Great table great service good times! Highly recommend
Do not order the tempura roll unless you like to spend $18 on rice. There is only a small bit of crab through the center and a very small amount of the worst cuts of ahi full of grizzle. The whole dish lacks any flavor , even the wasabi . I had wasabi mashed potato’s elsewhere that had more flavor than the wasabi they serve along side this tempura roll. I expressed my disgust of the dish and was pretty much ignored. I expected when I got my bill it would have been removed but no such luck. I never write reviews but I just couldn’t ignore this.
The owner was very accommodating as they were busy. Been coming here since the 80's and have always had a great time, great food, and taken care of by great people.
Awesome visit during our vacation to Kauai!
So great never disappoints ❤️
Always our first stop for dinner while vacationing on Kauai. In more than 30 years our family has never been disappointed!
They were out of a lot of things, including chicken breasts and watermelon. But everybody enjoyed what they ordered
Ono. Can’t beat the ambience. Food very good Little pricey but worth it.
Tourist trap! Nothing bad happened while we dined here. But seeing the 4.5 stars on open table left me wanting more. The food is basic diner food. The food is not sophisticated or elevated or frankly very good. The pricing is high tourist rates. $21 for nachos? The interior isn’t beautiful. It’s basically the interior of your local seafood restaurant. The location is prime though, right across from poipu beach. I don’t have an axe to grind. But if you’re a foodie. Don’t go here, you’ll be very disappointed.
While everyone around us got their food drink we waited. Table after us got thier drinks by our server before us. Had to find manager to pay tab as server didn’t return for 15 after dropping check off. Other staff served our meal.
Food was fantastic.
It was my husband’s birthday and we had a wonderful brunch with mimosas.
Beautiful place and we were happy to score a reservation, but…service was quite slow (even though it wasn’t screaming busy). Most of all, food lacked flavor. A couple of us had the Sunday brunch special of ahi eggs Benedict and it was soggy and bland. Avocado toast was pretty good but we asked for no onions but it came with them. Not worth the hassle of sending food back. Such a nice location with ocean breeze. I suppose that can make up for just an okay dining experience.
The food was delicious but the server immediately expected us late 20 year olds to not tip well. This resulted in bad service which to his assumption also resulted in a not so great tip. Sad it would’ve been a good tip.
Best service in town! Delicious food & great live entertainment! Love this place!
Everything was wonderful!!
Enjoyed it. Nice owners and staff. Food was pretty good— not extraordinary— but fairly priced for a vacation zone.
The service and ambience were great and the food did not let us down. The poke bowl was fresh and had a well balanced amount of rice. The nachos were just ok, but Taco Tuesday was a hit with perfectly cooked fish. This is a favorite dining location every time we visit Poipu.
Food was great. Service was fast.
Great food and drinks!
Brennecke’s never disappoints!
Ordered a 90$ plate of king crab which came out cold. The salad was extremely overpriced and basic. The drinks were excellent and worth the money. So sad because this is what we booked for my birthday dinner and our last meal out here before we go home. We ended up only paying for the drinks and went somewhere else. The manager did their best to make it right which we appreciated.
The macadamia coated fish was outstanding.
Great, fresh food!
Outstanding restaurant for beachside dining
Our server was helpful and so friendly, while the food was delicious and scenery beautiful!! The food is pricey but no more than your typical “nice” Kauai fare.
Great food, great service. Ambiance was laid back, and view was killer looking right on Poipu beach
Great food! staff were fast helpful and friendly. I booked reservation for a special occasion and we received what I think was vip treatment. Great place will definitely be back on future trips.
Such good food, and wonderful wait staff. Our food server was on the ball, and even though they were super busy, she kept the coffee cups full, and got us on the road in time to make it to the airport. Great location on the beach, with an open air view out onto the surf. Mahalo for helping us celebrate a birthday, and for fitting in a large group!
Good food, drinks and live music overlooking the ocean.
Full menu with choices for all tastes. Several options for kids too.
We’ve come to Poipu 9 times in 20 years and had never eaten at Brennecke’s. It was really great. Casual, friendly, great location.
Beautiful view and delicious meal. However, if a restaurant is going to require using a QR code to view their menu, they should have working free WiFi.
Get the coconut shrimp. Yum!
Aucun respect ou presque des normes COVID. Serveurs masculins sans masques… Manque total de considération pour la clientèle vulnérable.
Highly recommend; staff was wonderful and food was delicious. You won't be disappointed! Make your reservations early as they book out over a month in advance
great drinks good food very nice staff
