Great for a break in the middle of the day

My wife and I stopped into Brennecke's for a drink and a couple of appetizers early on a Thursday afternoon. We were promptly seated with a view of the park across the street which has the ocean as a backdrop. We ordered some excellent frozen drinks (their Lava Flow was particularly good... read more

My husband & shared nachos with pork were substantial to eat together. The staff was nice enough. It's a convenient location to enjoy a view and be next to the public beaches. You have to walk through their merchandise store to go upstairs for seating.

I am not a professional reviewer, and this is just my opinion. Located right across the street from Poipu Beach Park, the restaurant would be an ideal place for lunch or dinner. We first came here when there were a couple small cottages on the small bluff near Brenneke's Beach, quite a while ago. Which brings my first point about... More

We've visited Brennecke's many times over the past couple decades, and it was always a good low-key hangout with decent sort of bar food. I'm happy to say we we're pleasantly surprised by our most recent visits (4 times in a week). This is now one of the most satisfying dining experiences on the south shore of Kauai. The service...

This is one busy place and they don't take reservations, so expect a wait! Well worth the wait, staff are great, the view is wonderful and the food was fine. We would always go back here....

We stayed at a guest house within walking distance from Brennecke's so we ate there twice. Reasonably priced, excellent food and excellent service and yes excellent view. This placed is located almost on the beach. We met the owner Joe and enjoyed talking to him about his restaurant and his family, super nice guy. We asked our server for recommendations... More

We had nice, relaxing, casual lunch here while playing on the beach one day. Great views of the beach, great service and nice food selection. I thought it was fairly priced for the quality of the food and service!
