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.

Great food . Service wasn’t that great . Dirty dishes remained on the table for quite some time and the second round of drinks came after we both finished our meal and we ordered them before we stared .

Best coconut shrimp EVER! They should have an all you can eat option ;) I highly suggest pineapple lilikoi margaritas by the pitcher. The servers are wonderful and watching the ocean while you eat is amazing!

Nice view of the water and park. Food was OK and prices for that quality I would say high. "Fresh fish" a little "fishy" and the waitress, while attentive, could have given better guidance based upon our wishes. Not going to come back.

It was our last day in Kauai and we love Poipu. The sun came out after days of rain, we snorkeled in the bay across the street that day, and our dinner brought back sweet memories of a previous delightful meal at Brenneckes.

During our stay in Kauai, we ate at Brenneke’s twice. We were so happy they were open during COVID-19. Tables were well spaced, everyone wore masks, menus are online if you wish. All the staff were friendly, helpful, kind—true Aloha spirit!! The view over Poipu Park is exceptional. And the food—amazing! Great mix of island fare and more traditional options with an island twist.

Currently the menu is a bit more limited than it has been in the past but there was never a thought that we couldn’t find something we really wanted. During our stay, my husband had two different specials with short ribs (enchiladas or served over scallop risotto) which he thorough enjoyed. As a “fish” person my choices were the catch of the day (striped marlin) and ahi sashimi. Both were perfectly served.

When on Kauai, this is always one of our go-to places and it never disappoints.

My husband had surf and turf and I had the Pad Thai. Both were outstanding meals. My husband was commenting on how fantastic his dinner was all the way home. We are local customers and Brennecke's is one of our favorite restaurants. We have recommended Brennecke's to all of our visiting friends and they have not been disappointed. The band was also a nice addition, not too loud and good music. We also love the renovations. :-)

You can't go wrong with the Ahi Eggs Benedict! An enormous portion, perfectly cooked- to-order ahi, two eggs, potatoes, Oh My. In fact, each plate at our table for four was overflowing with darned delicious food, and lots of it. Highly recommend Brennecke's Brunch!!
