Very enjoyable evening. The service, food and drinks were great!
Our 45 anniversary
He host mentioned it when we ck in and that’s it
Terrible waitress initially and mediocre food. Once a favorite spot has slipped. Many better options exist.
Great spot with outstanding food. Great view of the ocean.
The food was amazing - several of us had the macadamia crusted marlin - it was tender and delicious. The service was friendly and accommodating- a great spot.
Climb the stairs to seating to see the ocean. Great view and well crafted drinks. Food was great!
Food & ambiance were great but our service was horrible.
It was horrible, reservations at 7;30 we were seated at 8;40, 10 mins to get waitress, cooks went on 15 min break got meal at 9:30. Every meal was unedible! Kids were asleep. Never again $152.00
Excellent food, great drinks. Service was stellar. Must reserve way ahead of time to get in. Great view too
Our server Mila was so fun! She joked with us, got a little sassy, and made our experience so enjoyable! The food and drinks were pretty great too!
Amazing service and food. The king crab legs were the best we have ever had!! The Mai Tai’s were also the best I have ever had!! Also the Coconut Shrimp was amazing!!
Well done. Food was good, service was fine overall better than what was anticipated.
We arrived in time to see sunset from our window booth, which was beautiful. Our server was friendly and attentive. We ordered the half pound Alaskan King Crab meal, and a local greens salad with a fresh catch filet. The crab was very disappointing. There's no way it was a half pound serving to begin with. It was barely reheated, and tasted bland and possibly even starting to turn. I had to soak each small piece in butter to make it palatable. My girlfriend's salad was mostly just lettuce with barely anything else in it, and her fish filet was overcooked and bland. I also ordered an Old Fashioned that was watered down and tasteless. I've only been there one time, so maybe they do other things better, but based on those two dishes, i cannot recommend Brennecke's.
Last night out with friends in Kauai.
Brennecke's Beach Broiler is always a must (at least once) on a trip to Kauai. The open air feel of the restaurant, with the incredible beach view, never lets us down. The staff is great, friendly and very welcoming.
Small fish and chips for $30? Good but not sure of value.
Love the spot. People were great.
Delicious food. Highly recommend the Poke bowl. Cold beer. Great view. And fun, friendly service in an outstandingly unique restaurant!
Van was our waitress and she is great. The Tai Chi's are absolutely amazing. Had the striped marlin fish we go there multiple times every year when we come back and have never been disappointed. Just go!!!
Year after year, when we are in Kauai, we always enjoy Brenneckes Beach Broiler. The food is really good, service is friendly. It's in a wonderful location.
Great place for nice lunch by the ocean. Service was great
The restaurant has a fascination with calling its items world famous. There's also a bit of false advertising as the restaurant isn't quite on the beach: its certainly close, but the photos all seem like trick photography to make you think you'll be eating on the sand. Big merch shop on the first floor makes it feel particularly touristy.
Went for Saturday Brunch and had GREAT service and wonderful food! Ocean View is perfect !
Great open air second floor grill & pub. Beach and ocean views are wonderful, as is picnic and green space areas. Service prompt and as engaged as requested. Limited menu, but well prepared.
Pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. We expected a little touristy restaurant, and instead were treated to excellent service, great cocktails, and a delicious dinner. 5 stars because it was much better than expected.
We were treated extremely well as the manager or owner greeted us talked with us. The food was excellent, the service was very responsive, the view was awesome and our company with our friends was priceless. Don’t miss the opportunity to eat at Brennecked!!
This was our first sit-down meal there. We had a previous take-out. Both meals were exceptionally delicious. And the service was timely and professional.
Stopped in for their burger and it was great!! Fun place near the beach. Good food (make sure to get the recommended sauce for the burger, it made the burger!!).
Always the best. Can’t beat the location, can’t beat the friendly service and can’t beat the fish! We eat there de real times a week. It’s Kauai!
Service was slow. It took longer than it should have to get our drinks- a beer and a coke. I asked for the special sauce for my burger but there wasn’t any on the burger or the plate The waiter went to get some but then she came back and said they had to get it from “ downstairs”. I never did get it but she brought me a container (after I had finished eating) to take home and try. I requested medium rare for my burger but it was very rare. I probably should have sent it back but was afraid it would take a long time and I don’t mind rare. Otherwise, we enjoyed the beachfront atmosphere and the live music. My husband’s prime rib was very good and so was the greens salad we shared.
Always good food and service being going to Brenneckes for years.
Adjacent parking; Seated on time; open air view of ocean; staff were compliant with CDC guidelines and attentive. Fresh catch was Marlin which was very tasty even when made into fish and chips. Prices were in line with market competitors. Good selection of beers and cocktails, especially the Mai Tai’s!
Great staff, view, and food. Good for lunch or dinner. Fish and chips are great.
The location is to die for: great for wave, beach, people, sunset, and whale watching! The food is good, very good when their main chef is cooking. The wine list is not their specialty area--which is their good mixed drinks. And the all the staff are wonderful and warm and aloha! Go!
Great views over to Poipu Beach Park. Now open for lunch too! Yeah! Good fish- fish & chips and fish in Caesar salad.
Great beach bar and grill. Open and airy. Tasty food
Overall very good
Great birthday dinner for my daughter. Mahalo ❤️
We were disappointed in the limited menu options here. The fish tacos were just ok.
Always the best people
Very slow service, significant disconnect between the bar/kitchen and servers. They were out of their main dishes (?!?) Pad Thai tasted like powdered noodles. Even their "world renowned" Mai Tai tasted and looked like a college fraternity soda/rum mix attempt.
Ambience was nice though, staff was very friendly and lively but management needs to get their act together in improving their overall service and food quality.
