Good place, good food, good service, good fun. Will b back
Beautiful spot Good food. Great service
We had a reservation but the wait was still long and service was slow - it took 30 mins to get our drinks and another 20 to get our food. The food was great, the margarita was meh.
The table was next to an open window with a great ocean view. Food and service was great ! Highly recommend!
The green salad with fish is so good!
Taylor was an incredible waitress! She was friendly, fun and very responsive.
Service was good but the food was mediocre at best, pub food for an established restaurant.
We make sure to go to Brennecke's every time we're here. Our server Taylor was awesome!!!
Great dinner. Great experience. Will definitely be back.
Wonderful food - had the Mac Nut Crusted fresh catch (striped marlin). So good! I’ve cream pie CANNOT be missed!!
Outstanding service Shannon was our waiter. Food was very good.
Great staff. Fun place for lunch.
Outstanding view and wonderful meal! Can't go wrong dining here!
Great experience at this fun spot. Our server was very attentive and friendly, and our food was great. Even though it was busy, our drinks and food came out quickly, and the food was very hot when it arrived at the table. Beautiful beach across the street was perfect for sunset.
Great place. We come back every year and are never disappointed.
It’s a neat place to sit up above the street and people watch a bit. There isn’t much on the menu if you aren’t a seafood lover, but that’s expected. The cleanliness has issues. The waiter had his bill holder tucked into his butt. That was nasty.
Had lunch , blackened ahi sandwich, fresh fish and the dressing was very good. Can’t really say more, liked the location, nice breeze and atmospheric !
Great table by the window with a view of the ocean. While they were out of several entrees we enjoyed our selections. Service was quite good!
Excellent ocean view, super busy & good food & service. Make reservations as far ahead of time as possible.
Amazing place, one of our favorites. Good pricing, amazing service and a great view with a good breeze.
In Hawaii celebrating our 40th anniversary. Among the restaurants we selected was brennrcke’s as in all the years coming to kauai, we had never tried it. Appears popular with a lot of people eating there. Strawberry daiquiri was truly awful, as was the replacement. How does a Hawaii beach bar make lousy tropical drinks? Friday is sushi night. The sushi at our local grocery in the SF Bay Area is better. Fish in fish and chips was very good, but fries were limp and cold. Tarter sauce was excellent and appeared house made. Overall marginal drinks and marginal food. Very disappointing and would not recommend to others.
Casual spot near the beach, too dark to see the ocean however. Service was good, drinks fine, but the food was not good. One plate of crab legs was ok but not great, but the second order had a couple of legs where the meat was literally still frozen, and none of the meat was warm. I had an ahi tuna sandwich which I realize ahi is not served cooked through and I'm fine with that, but again it was not even warm on the outside, and completely cool inside. Our server did ask about it when they noticed I had barely touched it, and they did make me another sandwich, which was much better. But overall a disappointing experience. Unfortunately right now Kauai is just beginning to open up again and there are not a lot of options. We were there June 3.
Fish end chips a bit greasy. Coconut shrimp was really good. Waited to be seated despite reservation.
Great view and good. Enjoyed it so much returned the next day
The food is wonderful!
Really a good meal- great friendly service- beautiful view…. Easy parking- nice casual night!
Very great service, food was delicious and served quick and easy.
We are enjoyed every moment
Food was good. Children's prime rib was gigantic. Service was excellent. Seating when we got there even though we had a reservation was a little bit slow. Nice water views. Temperature check at door.
Casual beach-side dining on the 2nd open-air level of the restaurant. Happy Hour drinks & pupus were quite good and reasonably priced for Hawaii. Had a nice table by an oceanside open window. Service was very good. Biggest issue (road noise) is not within Brennecke's control. We had a couple of very loud motorcycles go past & then idle outside the restaurant which made it very difficult to have a conversation. However, that lasted for only 5 minutes.
Bartender was awesome, food & Atmosphere excellent. Table Waitressed barely made conversation with us, And charged us for a drink that we didn’t get, 20 minutes after ordering it, and still Didn’t arrive, so we canceled it but still got charged. We had it corrected though
Best atmosphere in the island. Very friendly staff. Food is excellent and views are perfect.
True Island neighborhood feel. Second story view has diminished some over the years as the flowering across the road have grown up. Music was a bit loud
Busy night but we had a good time. Server was great but she was busy. NY strip steak ok but shrimp great.
Brennecke's is doing a great job of dealing with the Covid-19 restrictions. We were quick to be seated with our reservation. Everyone from the host, waiter and server were very helpful and pleasant even though they were very busy. The food was good even with not having much competition in the immediate area. Thanks for making it a wonderful dinner!
The food is delicious and the staff is super friendly!
Liked the live music on saturday. Coconut shrimp were excellent. Make sure you have a reservation- wait times for those who didn’t at 6pm were two hours.
We loved it so much we came back for brunch the next day too! A new favorite on Kauai! Loved every minute. Service was excellent and so friendly. Food was amazing. You can’t go wrong
Great food and great service.
The food is great ,, view is great everybody that works there is wonderful really enjoyed our self
