Our anniversary tradition never disappoints

After visiting Poipu and dining at Brenneke's for our tenth anniversary, it has happened to work out that we have spent our 20th and 30th anniversaries there as well....

Food is not much to remember, run of the mill quality. But make sure you request a table by the "window". Not sure I would go back even for the view. The lady on the first floor was rude, and upstairs paid attention to what appeared "repeat" clients.

This was the only restaurant that we ordered drinks and were disappointed. One of us sent their MaiTai back, two martinis were "tinis"--so small and weak. And one ordered a hot tea and never got it, but it was on our bill. Our meals were just okay, we were told that what is on their menu is subject to change... More

Group of 9 went for beer and happy hour food upstairs. We were seated promptly and our server, a cute local girl, was fun and attentive. Stick to happy hour menu from 3-5 to avoid the usual kauai sticker shock. Will return on this 2 week visit.

We had a late night Father's Day dinner. Sitting on the second floor with open space construction certainly puts you in the Aloha Spirit....the drinks certainly help with the Bacardi 151 floaters... We ordered the stuffed mushroom appetizer which the family inhaled (guess it was good). The family ordered fish tacos, salads and a burger. All in all, a great... More

Fun and casual, facing the ocean. Be aware, there is no accessibility and the restaurant is upstairs. Food is well prepared, and portions large. I would skip the specialty cocktails, as they were pretty mediocre. Staff is extremely friendly and service attentive. Best times might be during happy hours, 4-5pm and after 8:30pm. Prices for drinks drop and there is... More

Our large family group ate at Brennecke's twice when we stayed in Poipu. The fish and chips were excellent, the veggie burger was good and the salad with pear and bacon was as well. The fish dishes seemed to be the best choices, but the other items were fine and they had a lot of choices that pleased everyone.

The ahi sashimi appetizer was melt-in-your-mouth perfect, and the rest of the meal was very, very good. The Mai Tais were excellent (they're closing in on serving 1,000,000 of them per the sign outside; we've made a minor contribution to that total). One of the places we always stop when we're in Poipu. Wait staff is friendly and helpful. Hint:... More

We just visited Brennecke's a few weeks ago when holidaying in Poipu. It was a recommendation from someone so we thought to give it a go. We had two cocktails and they were really good! Unfortunately, we ordered the pork tacos and the nachos and they were both quite bad. We discussed our food order amongst ourselves and thought perhaps... More

We went to Brennecke's on June 27,2015, and had lunch. We got seated immediately by the view section and enjoyed watching everyone at PoiPu beach. They are known for their fish dishes and we ordered the appetizer that had a little bit of everything on it and it was a nice sampling, but I don't know that I would order... More
