Although it was a very long wait for dinner, the food was excellent. The staff was very nice, and pleasant.

If you are in the Poipu area for lunch, don't miss the tilapia & grilled eggplant with goat cheese salad at Brennecke's. It is delicious! They also serve the best clam chowder I have ever had. Tables overlooking the beach make a great meal even better.

Thank you so much for your review. Many of our guests enjoy the eggplant, goat cheese with Mahi Mahi salad. It's one of our top sellers at lunch time. Next time your in town say hi. Aloha More

I ate here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. The dinner was so-so (i had the burger), but the drinks were delicious. It was fairly average price wise for the island. the lunch was quite good (Pork Nachos) and the service was supreme at lunch. Beautiful beach views from the tables.

Food arrived in timely manner however waitress... More

at a very crowded time, we still had excellent service. Recommend the Ono but all four of us had great meals. Price for a restaurant on Kauai was middle of the road but worth it.

Worth the wait. Open air dinning on second floor with great views of the Hawaii surf and beach. Food and service excellent.

Glad you enjoyed your time at our little slice of Poipu beach. After 30 years, we're still a great place to grab a burger at the beach! Travel safe. Aloha. More

We ate here the first night we arrived on the island. We were tired and hungry. The service was very good, a varied menu. I ordered fish. It was tasty but the portion was little- i am not exaggerating and the price was $27.00!!!! Because of that, we never went back. But the food was decent.

Visited mid-afternoon, just in time for Happy Hour. Coconut shrimp appetizers were excellent. Good bar service, good happy hour prices. For mixed drinks (pina colada, etc), they do not use those chemical-laden concoctions from milk cartons- I thought this was a nice touch, very sensible for the price you pay. Many locals come here, am told the burgers are average.... More

Nice restaurant and a good variety of dishes. The burger is awesome and the staff friendly as they always are on Kauai . Book your table in advance if possible since it's often crowded !

We have eaten at Brennecke's several times on past trips, but this was by far our worst experience. Our waiter was rude and didn't want to answer questions about the menu since he seemed to be in such a rush to "turn the table" and get more tippers in his section. I ordered the fish sandwich and got a small,... More

Thank you so much for your review. I apologize about the poor service you received during your recent business, you know that is not "normal" for us. Being a small family owned restaurant we make every attempt to provide each guest with good quality fresh foods for reasonable prices. While there are certainly many other places on the island to...
