Very friendly service! It was a nice change from some of the other local restaurants where service was less than friendly. Food was great, table overlooked ocean, catered to our young boys and everything came out timely!! Everyone from the hostess to server to gift shop employee were very kind and engaging!
Liked it so much we went back 2 nights in a row. Plan to use for take out also.
Food was wonderful, service a little slow, but overall a great experience. We will be back!
Thank you for the nice review. We look forward to your return visit with us. Aloha.
Excellent meal. Great service throughout. Beautiful view. Recommend the mac nut encrusted mahi mahi, and stuffed mushrooms.
Thank you for your business and we all appreciate your 5 star review. Aloha.
A great and fun restaurant. Would recommend it to any and all!
Arrived early for our 5:30 reservation and hearing it explained that the tables in the bar were available to those without reservations as long as they put their name on the list. At least 3 parties were seated in the bar as we waited for our table. When they came to seat us, he took us to a table in the middle of the bar. He did not ask if this was ok just dropped off the menus. There were several tables open up in the dining room but none were offered to us. We decided this was not the dining experience we have had here in the past and Brennecke's has lost our business.
Roger sorry to hear about your seating mishap. It sounds like you have been here before and at least enjoyed your visit enough to come back. Our reservations are limited and we usually try to seat reservations nearest the open windows. There is no guarantee window tables will be available at the time of your reservation. It sounds like to me a little more communication could have helped this situation tremendously, don't let this one mishap stop you from returning. Our sincere apologies. Aloha.
Lunch was amazing!! The pork burrito was large and flavorful. The view was like a picture!
Thank you for review and business. Aloha.
Bar area was fun.
Reservation easy to make on open table.
Nice open air dining.
Our server, Celia, was fantastic.
Coming from the Boston area...we really appreciated the excellent Clam Chowder.
Thank you Kathleen for the excellent 5 star review. I will be sure to share this review with Celia as she has been with us a very long time. We are glad you enjoyed our clam chowder especially being from the Boston area. Aloha til we meet again.
Service was quick, too quick. We felt rushed, like they were trying to turn things over, even though our reservation was late, at 8pm.
Food was good but the fries were cold and stale.
Overall, felt very tourist-y, but if that's what you're into, it was fine. Location was great.
Sorry for the rushed feeling Victoria and the cold fries. We never want our guests to feel rushed and that certainly does not fit into our "Service that rocks" motto. We invite you back to try us again, even if it's just for happy hour pupus sometime before you leave the island. Aloha.
This is our 25th yearly visit and, as always one of our favorites
Thank you sooo much for the continued business over all those years. We all work hard to accomplish each 5 star review from our early morning maintenance crew to our late night bartenders. We love what we do and I am glad it shows. Aloha til next year.

Thank you Dan for your excellent review. I will be sure to share your review with Greg. Aloha and safe travels.
The sports bar vibe is elevated a notch by the ocean view. The service is very good, with friendly alohas from all, and solid on water refills. My husband ordered their fruit smoothie which was a tangy treat, and my pineapple IPA was good though seemed it could have been colder. We started with the poke tacos which were crisp and flavorful. My husband’s burger was the right temperature, satisfying and he appreciated that the brioche bun held up well. I ordered their organic greens salad plus ahi, which was seared rare and lightly seasoned. The salad is basic with greens, carrot and cherry tomato but nicely dressed with a white balsamic vinaigrette. We shared the flourless chocolate cake, called a lava cake because it has a filling, but it was not served particularly warm, which would have been a lot better to melt the vanilla ice cream. The raspberry sauce was nothing special but overall it was a nice treat. Portions were respectable and a decent value. With TV screens (featuring college bowl games when we were there) plus some classic rock tunes (not too loud for conversation) but a friendly and low-key casual place.
It’s freaking Kauai! What else is there to say
We went at 4:15pm so it was pretty quiet. We had the Mac Nut Mahi Mahi, NY Strip, Pad Tai, and the Ono. The fish and the pad tai were mostly without spice. Could have used a bit more spice heat. The steak had to be returned to the grill for a few more minutes, but was very good. Great location on the beach.
A fantastic find! Right by the beach. We dined here for lunch and dinner. Kids loved this place and so did we! Food is excellent and the staff is very cheerful, friendly and kind. Thanks for making us feel at home!!
Good food great service
Great food and service! Nice view.
Ate here before and loved the selection of food also close to the beach.
We appreciate your business. Glad you enjoyed your visit with us. Aloha.
Could eat there five nights a week! Food is delicious staff is friendly and helpful! Ambience is fantastic. Great for every day dining or special occasions! Right on the beach, couldn’t be any better
We agree! Aloha.
Had the special and it was great. Coconut shrimp rock. Their main tai is awesome and so was the bloddy mary. Will go back
We appreciate your business and are glad you enjoyed our coconut shrimp and mai tai. We look forward to your return visit with us. Aloha.
Fun. Casual. Crowded. Good food. Busy bar.
Had not been for several years. We were celebrating a variety of things. Our appetizer, main course and the suggested wine were perfect. Our server was informative, had the right amount of engagement and was attentive to all our needs. A truly lovely beach front setting.
Beach bar with good food, Across the street from Poipu Beach. What more need be said...
Fun evening with my husband and niece. Great service, and fun atmosphere.
We appreciate your business. Aloha.
