Shannon, our server(this time) was a delight. But we have always loved the staff; as locals we have brought friends here and make it a regular destination when we venture out to eat. Have especially enjoyed Chef Cody’s approach to food and people. We are fans!! The Schultz Family

Brennecke’s is one of the BEST restaurants on the South side. Hoku, the Manager is friendly and makes sure your experience is the perfect night out. Food is delicious, drinks are amazing and nightly entertainment is great. When in the Poipu area definitely a must to eat & drink and enjoy the breathtaking view.

The staff was friendly and welcoming. All exercised COVID 19 facemasks and gloves. The ambiance was excellent with a great view of the south shore. The drinks were to die for. The food was simply delicious and well portioned. The dessert was also great. And then to top it off, the bill was very reasonable.

We were so glad Brennecke's was open during this time (pandemic). It was wonderful-- open air, staff wearing masks, and customers, too, while moving through restaurant. Food and drinks were delicious. Just perfect.

For the most part the dinner was okay. My wife enjoyed her meal as I only needed to return my plate once because they didn’t serve it as it was agreed upon during my order. Because of this, my wife was forced to eat alone as I watched on. I also didn’t enjoy the fact that other that were seated around us were greeted, seated, and informed of the daily specials that were being offered. I’m sure the people seated on the two sides of us would give a great review, as we noticed they were well taken care of. Once my food came back out, it was satisfying although they needed to reheat my prime rib changing the desired temperature. On the upside, as a parting gift the individual I believed to be the manager offered us a birthday dessert after he noticed that his staff didn’t present one to us prior.

Server, don’t remember his name but he sat down with us and had a friendly conversation. Granted it was towards closing and we were the last ones so don’t expect this sort of treatment. To me it makes me feel like a human. I have nothing but respect for the service industry. Fish and chips were really good. Pretty sure it was Marlin. Girl had salad it was good too. Late night night bite or you’re hungry after snorkeling at Poipu beach or surrounding show up here you’ll get taken care of. 🤙

Why reserve a table if you have to wait 30 minutes anyways?? Just walk in.

Responded on March 11, 2020

Sorry about the wait past your reservation time...that is unusual and we do watch that daily. Sometimes tables don't turn as fast as they "usually" do and we do our best to satisfy all of our guests. We apologize about the extended wait. Try us again and see that your original experience is not "typical" Reservations are always recommended and we do our best to hold window side tables for reservations. Sorry again. Aloha.

Wonderful open and airy upstairs location with beautiful views and wind swept dining. Very kind hostess, great waiter, comfortable ambiance, fair to moderate fish (but pricey) but bland sides (broccoli and mashed potatoes). Gin and tonic was disappointing and watery, i told our waiter and asked for another stronger drink with dinner so orders me a double, doubled the volume, charged me an additional $5.75 for a total of $14.50. He then delivered a dilute, weak tasting, twice the volume gin and tonic mixture that was awful. Should have returned it but I was just tired of dealing with it and left. I would go again but would stick with canned beer and enjoy the location/ambiance

Sorry about the poor bar experience during your visit. Our entire staff, especially our bar staff is among the best island wide. We do care and are grateful you'd still return despite the less than thrilling gin and tonic. Again, we apologize and invite you back to try us again. Aloha.

Food was really good! I had their fish special and it was excellent. We also had desserts, bread pudding and a scoop of macadamia nut ice cream. The bread pudding was enough for 4 people, so we took lots home. The dining area overlooks the beach so the location is fantastic, especially at sunset. The MaiTai’s are really good too!
