We haven't been to Brennecke's Ina while. We were trying to go to another Poipu restaurant, but they were closed. We called Brenncke's and we're lucky to get in. Bottom line, all 4 of us said the meals we had were excellent. We'll be back!

This was a great place for a casual lunch. We split the fish and chips, which was an excellent choice. The two pieces of fish were huge, so it was great to share. It was delicious so I could've easily eaten the whole thing by myself, then been miserable from eating so much.

Got there just in time for happy hour but before dinner. We took advantage and had happy hour Mai Tai's. my son had the strawberry smoothie. All were delicious. Mai Tai's are one of my favorites and these were very good. Not watered down as some reviews say. I had the Brenneckes burger and it was cooked just the way... More

Great view of the beach. Excellent seafood dishes. The fish and chips, in particular, was wonderfully done -- two HUGE pieces of very nicely done fish and tasty coated fries.

I love a beach-front restaurant and place has really nice views, good service and great mai tais. Visit happy hour and you won't need dinner.

We ate lunch here. Two people had the fish fry. It was expensive, $22, but good? One of us had the ahi tacos. They were disappointing. Lots of silver skin. We complained and they were happy to not charge us for them. The fourth person had the Kailua pork tacos. They were dry. We didn't complain, but they were definitely... More

Very good food, but sort of pricey, but that's expected because of the view and parking! Open air dining was a plug and they had good waitresses.!

Is a good place for lunch. Food was good and service good too. Fresh air and view of beach from above. Ample parking. Located right across from Poipu beach.

My parent's have been visiting Kauai for years and Brennecke's is our family's favorite restaurant in Kauai. Their salads are always fresh and very flavorful. The seared Ahi Tuna with Porcini Ravioli is amazing every time we order it! The Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi is wonderful also. All of the drinks we have tried are really good, just tried...

A tiny walk from the beach, this place offers excellent lunch choices. Service was speedy and friendly. Fran and I had the fish tacos. The Ahi tuna was done to our choice, although medium rare is standard unless you say otherwise. The atmosphere is typical Hawaii open air with large windows that can be can be closed in case of...
