We had dinner there in June, 2013 and it was GREAT! The owner was there and made us feel special. Went back this year as a family and waited over an hour but thought it would be worth it and our girls would love it. Hostess was not nice. Waiter was waiting on to many tables and so our service...

On our way back from hiking in Waimea Canyou, which was spectacular, we decided to stop in Poipu for dinner and a drink. Right at the beach was Brennecke's restaurant. We just missed the happy hour (3-5), and there was a line to be seated at a table. We decided to have a drink at the bar area where there... More

I paid $22 for fish and chips but I have to admit that it was the best fish and chips I have ever had. Ono fish; beer-battered and so fresh and delicious. A great open-window table with a view of the gorgeous Poipu beach. We took our time for lunch on a Saturday and had a great time enjoying pitchers... More

I went for the nachos, which did not disappoint. Good location, service and atmosphere. My salad was fine but not great. Hubby and kids also give it a 4/5. I would say go for lunch vs dinner, especially when you have Keoki's, Roy's, Red Salt and Tidepools nearby.

We have eaten here twice and that's enough. Worse quality than a fast food place. Everything tastes like it's out of a freezer and microwaved. The prices are higher than some of the nicer restaurants in the area. It is the only place right across from the beach in Poipu and even then we would rather drive further to get... More

We went here 3 times in 11 days - for dinner or happy hour. My favorite dishes are the pulled pork nachos and fish and chips. Amazing! Great seaside views! Great for families, couples or whomever!

Visited Brennecke's for lunch while driving around Kauai for the day. I would describe it as a fun spot to eat. Great view of the neighboring park with the ocean in the distance. Service was good and sandwich was as well. Great spot for a fun meal and a few tropical drinks.

Loved the food here: The fish was very fresh and perfectly cooked (both seared and grilled). Also loved the open-air feel with all the windows wide open and the ocean view to enjoy while eating. Would have given it a 5 if not for it being a bit too pricey.

Location is great, right at poi' pu beach. Food was out fairly quickly. Fish n chips was terrible. Fish was overdone and small. Way too expensive for such bad food. Drink was okay. Nothing special. Maui does it better for sure. Host was great. Very friendly and welcoming. He's perfectly suited for front of the house and serves the restaurant... More

Ask for a seat by the window. Its a beautiful view of the ocean. The windows are large and the breeze is terrific. The food was good and wait staff was excellent. Drinks were good too.
