    We came for birthday breakfast our waiter Chase was amazing they treated me to a wonderful Hula Pue for my birthday after our breakfast. If there was anything negative to say it would be that they didn’t have macadamia nuts for the Hawaiian sweet bread macadamia but French toast. We also got to watch a monk seal out on the sand bar while we were having breakfast. It was a really unique experience

    I don’t think the poke tacos was ahi (some other kind of fish), burgers and salads were good, edamame and drinks were good. Server seemed disinterested and drink/water refills were slow.

    Food was terrific! Great vegan Pad Thai and my partner’s burger was done as she requested (medium well, so next time she’ll order just medium! LOL). They were out of their one non-alcoholic beer. Vista was gorgeous.

    We always like Brennecke’s when we return to Kauai. The inside with large open windows is very nice. Arriving prior to sunset is a treat. The prices are a bit high and the service requires patience, but the experience is worth any negatives. Hey, it’s Hawaii, relax and go with it.

    Started out at a table in the corner next to the kitchen. Thankfully, another guest left so we were able to get a much better spot. Food was good but I thought it was expensive for what it is. Oh well, it is Kauai and everything here is pricey. The staff is great and very accommodating.

    We have been to Brennecke’s during previous trips to Kauai and made ITV’s point to return this trip. We were sadly disappointed with the menu options and the food was average. Our waitress was outgoing and fun and provided great service. Would not be likely to return during our next visit to Kauai.

    We both sat on the same side of the table for lunch gazing at the beautiful Pacific Ocean and the splendor and awesome beauty of the island of Kauai. Our meal came and it just got better, I had the Ahi sandwich medium rare and my girl friend had a perfectly cooked burger which she enjoyed as well. The server a young man I believe his name was Chase was most attentive and it made for the best lunch we had on the Island. We had lunch their twice once by ourselves and once with our friends both experiences were excellent. We love Brennecke’s Beach Broiler in Kauai and definitely will return. Mahalo.

    Out server Patty was outstanding. Still struggling in the wake of Covid. Understaffed and ran out of a lot of basic ingredients. Ordered three of the same drink and each one had something missing or somthing different. Burger was naked and extremely dry. Ceviche wonton and coconut shrimp were the highlights

    The service was so poor. Had a reservation and was taken quickly to our table and food ordered however food took over an hour for breakfast that turned into lunch to come . Ask if potatoes could be substituted for fries (since burgers were being served and told sorry too busy you will have to order a side of fries . Several excuses for being busy - after an hour asked for another coffee and came cold. Maybe invest in a better coffee maker ! Nice view but experience just horrible!
