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.

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...

After going to Poipu for over 20 years, I have hoped that this place would reinvest their profits to expand the way too small upper searing area. Either that or create outdoor searing somehow. The food was okay, and as always with Poipu, on the side of expensive. Go in the army afternoon and you won't care how expensive it... More

Thank you for your honest review and continued business over the years. Our small location does provide for some pretty busy times throughout the year, especially during peak seasons. We always recommend reservations for dinner and usually have tables available for our happy hours from 3-5p daily. Next time your in town, say hello to our management team. More

I have been to Brennecke's many a time but I have to say, it was not as good as I had remembered it being. The service was excellent, which was the best thing about our experience here. The food was bland and nothing special, but it was very edible. I got the fish tacos, which were good but not that... More

Thank you for your review, and we are glad you enjoyed your view of the sun set and moon rise! As part of the management team I am glad your service was excellent! Our fish taco sauce has recently been improved upon to a yogurt cilantro lime sauce that seems to be pretty popular, so far. We appreciate your business,... More

My husband had the chicken sandwich and fries. He said it was very good. Loved the fries. I had the fish and chips, the fish was very good. We would definitely eat here again when we return to Kauai.
