Wonderful food and beer; obviously owned and run by foodies. Attention to detail in cooking times, food perfect. Local flavor and beautiful setting. I rebooked our table 2 nights in a row.
Soooo amazing and gorgeous view! Great for kids. Hostess loved our girls and was very sweet with them - checking on them to make sure we were doing well.
Great place for late dinner and music. Casual dress is good. Food was alright, nothing stood out.
Very touristy. Don’t think we saw one local there. Food and drinks are what tourists visiting would probably consider Hawaiian food. We preferred restaurants that were local, tasty, fresh and authentic.
Great food! Service was okay - slow...
Best poke bowl on Kauai!! Great staff and great views. We eat at Brennecke’s often.
Might have been good except we didn’t learn they were out of the two entree we had come there for until we ordered. Server stated “oh, I guess I forgot to mention we’re out of macadamia crusted mahi mahi AND seered ono” - the two most popular entrees.
Average restaurant with above average prices for what was served.
Great experience and good.
Food and service was awesome. We had the fish tacos and fish and chips for lunch with the lava cake for dessert 👌. Beautiful view of the ocean and park in an open air setting, Th I s is probably our 3-4 visit over the years of visiting Kauai. Flies are sometimes a nuisance with the open air.
Finally got a window seat. Great.....".........................................Thank you for your help
Super fun and great happy hour. Waiter was awesome and loved seeing the ocean. Fun to celebrate my bday there.
Love Brenneckes, always a favorite for friends and family. Disappointed with my Macadamia Crusted Maui. I am sure the chef didn’t prepare correctly. It was breaded with no nuts. I have had this dish several times before. I asked the waitress and she said it was right. Didn't want to cause a scene as we had 5 at our table.
Had a great meal tonight with an even better view. From apps to main and desert all were presented and cooked well . Staff was friendly and helpful
A great place for a casual dinner on Brennecke’s beach. Good happy hour. Good menu variety.
Great food and great view.
Great beach bar & grill. Food and drink as you’d expect from this location. Still a lot of fun.
Food was great. . .only complaints...my opah and scallops dish had a total of 2 scallops...was supposed to come with vegetables and basically had mushrooms and a couple of peppers. All very tasty. My husband had outstanding prime rib with actual steamed vegetables. Hannah was a thoughtful, attentive waitress.
Good happy hour can make a meal out of 2 or 3 appetizers. Nachos are delicious 😋 Clam chowder loaded with claims!
Time and time again after going to Brennecke’s for over 20 years we are never disappointed. Best meal and drinks on Kauai!
Even with a reservation, plan to wait for a table. Brenenecke’s is very popular - good for bar food. We were not impresses with food or service. Nothing exceptional.
The location is great close to the beach , service is excellent , just found Caesar salad had no taste , clam chowder was lacking in substance and flavour ,flourless lava cake saved the day .
We had lunch here and the view of the ocean is fabulous. I had the beach burger and it was done just the way I like it. They use a pretzel bun and I don’t like them so I skipped the bun. My friend had the tuna and it was also done to her liking.
The service was prompt and she took good care of us. This is one of my favorite spots to look out at the sea across a great beach.
Thanks Scottie for your excellent 5 star review. We appreciate your business. Aloha.
Good fun food and drinks!
We appreciate your business Dave. Aloha.
We went there twice during our stay in Kauai! The food was outstanding both times. There are a few tables that don’t have a great view so I recommend reservations if possible. We were able to get reservations the day before we wanted to go.
Thank you Marge and yes reservations are always recommended. We appreciate your business and excellent 5 star review. Aloha.
We miss some of the old menu options - pork tacos, pork sandwich and the (not blackened) high sandwich.
Thank you for your business and review. We do cycle some menu items on and off the menu and we like to keep it fresh. The kalua park tacos are great and we will talk about adding them back to the menu as an option. Aloha.
Great food. Nice people. Hard to beat prices. Recommend to all.
We appreciate your business and are glad you feel our prices are hard to beat! As a management team we do our best to keep costs down, which allows us to sell our quality food at reasonable prices. Aloha.
Great view of sunset over the beach from our table. Crowded but reservations helped. Good and service were great. A little pricey by mainland standards but about right for islands
Thank you Robert for your nice review and you are right reservations are very helpful especially for dinner. We appreciate your business. Aloha.
I had a great corner table to watch the sunset and wonderful service!
Service es great here. Had a fantastic mahi mahi chef’s special. The bread pudding was amazing too! Only issues were that the seats were a bit too close together and the flies were quite bothersome. Had to send a couple of drinks back in exchange for new ones because of this. Otherwise, it was a good place to have a nice family and friends dinner.
We appreciate your business and are sorry about the pests. Our open air environment is very hard to control, especially in our warm humid climate. I am glad the staff took good care of you during your visit. The nightly chef special is always a crowd pleaser. Aloha.
Very quick service. The food was delicious!!
Thank you for your business. Aloha.
Great place to have lunch and dinner. Great location. A Must.
Thank you David. Aloha.
Good dinner, service and ambiance.
We appreciate your business and excellent 5 star review. Aloha.
Nice location just off the beach.....mediocre food and menu
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!
We appreciate your business. Aloha.
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!
Thank you David for your excellent 5 star review. Aloha til next time.
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.
