My husband and I have been at This restaurant three times this past week. We enjoy the great food and the view! We loved the deliscious dinner we had there on April 21st - Ono over rice with vegetables in a light sauce! So great! Then we had the lava chocolate cake that comes with vanilla ice cream and raspberry... More

My husband and I had a quick lunch here before hitting the beach. This quick lunch of an order of coconut shrimp (we got 5 shrimp), shrimp stuffed mushroom caps (I think 6?), one order of fish and chips, one lemonade and one mango pina colada plus tip came to $70!!!! We didn't even get 2 entrees! I couldn't believe... More

This is the closest place to grab a bite on Poipu beach so the fact that it was very crowded was not surprising. We decided to sit at the bar. The service by the bartender was terrific. We got the shrimp salad and coconut shrimp with a side order of fries. Everything was good but the coconut mango aioli I... More

We went for happy hour and an early dinner. The happy hour drinks were good and reasonably priced. Our dinner was excellent, but seemed a little pricey. We enjoyed sitting where we could enjoy watching the beach. The service was super: friendly, helpful, and attentive.

Met Bob, the very friendly owner. Great casual dining in a wonderful location. Plan to walk across the street to the park at sunset!

We went there for lunch and the food was very average, but ridiculously expensive. But the drinks are always good!

We were recently in Poipu Beach for 8 days and ate at Brennecke's three different times!! Great tropical drinks along with great appetizers, fish & chips, burgers, and nachos!! Would highly recommend if for no other reason than the ambiance!!!

I recommend waiting for a window table if you're not in a hurry, as it adds to the already open and festive style atmosphere, not to mention the great sunset if you get there at the right time. Friendly wait staff and good food. Our group of four each had either the fish tacos or fish and chips dinner and... More

Had an early dinner here on a cloudy evening. View of the beach was still enjoyable even without sun. Our server was friendly and efficient. Although we were there in time for happy hour, decided to go with basic burgers which were very good. We look forward to coming back on our next trip to Kauai.
