Fresh Catch Fish with Rice & Vegetables
Great staff, view, and food. Good for lunch or dinner. Fish and chips are great.
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.
Always our go to place since 1984
BRUNCH was awesome! Everyone in our party of 8 were happy!
Great food and service
great band, great food, great service.....great vibes
Food adequate (not special). Very light pour on the drinks including their touted My Tai.
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!
Had the 1/2 lb king crab..it seemed pre-cooked and I would have liked to have my scales to check...great service though and the macadamia nut ice cream is unbelievable! - Yum!
Nice view. Food was solid. Cocktails were weak and not tasty.
Everything was fabulous! Very casual laid back atmosphere near the waterfront. Would recommend.
Our favorite place to eat in Poipu. This time I had the coconut shrimp and poke bowl. So so ono! I didn't have to eat dinner that night :-)
My short rib loco moco was delicious. Served with extra gravy on the side. Huge portion! Service was friendly and prompt.
Ahi appetizer was great. Ym
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.
Food disappointing, been here several times in past, 2019 and before food was better. We at twice hoping 2nd time would be better! Shrimp and lava cake was best, fish and crab not the beat.
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.
Great atmosphere, great food and excellent service. Our waiter, Shannon was welcoming, accommodating and had a great sense of humor. Very funny! Overall, very good and fun!
Wonderful food. Great location. We had the brunch and it was delicious! Everyone who worked there was very nice. We had a really great waiter. He was very helpful and really nice.
Drew at the desk and Van as our server made our time very pleasant. The food was perfect and we return in tge morning. Mahalo.
Fish and chips were fresh and perfectly crisp and the ahi poke bowl was also really good! The mai tai was very string
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.
Typical beach bar with local flare. Ahi sandwich was great and shrimp tacos were filling. Great location to see turtles on the beach outside!
Keith our server is always fantastic. The food is wonderful Great portion sizes
Music is upbeat and fun. The ocean view and breeze thru the windows is just stunning
We thank all the staff and management for staying open during the pandemic. Appreciate their dedication for wearing face masks, social distancing . Restaurant is clean and comfortable Always my favorite on the Island
We were celebrating pre-valentines, staff are very friendly and attentive as usual 😎
Was a great dinner and we enjoyed the live music!
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. :-)
We ordered several of chef Drew’s sushi offerings and we couldn’t have been more pleased. Everything was awesome. So delicious and our waiter was great too! What an awesome attitude he had. Made dinner fun!!
As usual we had a great dinner and a wonderful time at Brennecke's this past Friday night. In addition to the great food and drinks we enjoyed the awesome service by Keith as well as the music played by the band "Underrated" . A great time was had by all.
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!!
We went for Chef Drew’s sushi and it was fantastic. Our usual sushi place is another restaurant but this is always better.
My wife and I had a delicious brunch, particularly the Fresh Ahi Benedict.
