Ordered the Pulled Pork BBQ Burger, as did my brother. Fantastic taste combination! Their waffle fries were perfect. Massive burger with an onion ring on it. It was like eating a double burger. Needed some sauce on the bun, but that was my choice. Sunset at Piopu Beach & a great burger. PERFECT!

We were in Kauai in 2016 and decided not to eat here - this was a poor choice. We returned in 2017 and had dinner here. The food, service and open air dining room all exceeded our expectations. The fresh fish was well prepare and very tasty. Make reservations - there is limited waiting room upstairs. BTW the Mai Tais... More

During our three night stay in the Poipu area, we became two time customers of Brennecke's - and fortunate enough to have spent St. Patrick's Day there. Our first visit was for drinks after having dined elsewhere. The bar staff was attentive and fun. We then made the executive decision to have dinner at Brennecke's on St. Patrick's Day. As... More

Moderate food for a vegetarian. Only three menu options. Store bought veggie burger on a good bun, with grilled mushrooms and onions. Pretty good fries. The view is far from mediocre looking out over the water and beach across the streets. Catches the TradeWinds so it's pleasant to sit and enjoy what you can of the food.

We enjoy Brennecke's, it is a casual place to enjoy food with a great local ambiance and view. Can get very crowded and reservations would be suggested for dinner but are not required. No reservation, have a Mai Tai or two while waiting for a table.

It hardly seems like a trip to this beach without a stop for lunch here. We were seated quickly, with a great view and a nice breeze. The server was attentive and knowledgeable, without trying to become our buddy and friend. Fish and chips and the ahi sandwich, along with a couple of cold glasses of beer made for a... More

Stopped into this place a couple of times and even met the owner once. Very convenient to Poipu beach for good eats and COLD beer. Try the coconut shrimp - they are awesome.

We had reservations & only had to wait a few minutes to be seated. Ordered a cocktail the staff had never heard of (pretty standard one) but they listened and produced a pretty decent version. Suspect most diners lean towards the sweet, tropical drinks. We opted for light dinners. The pork tacos were ample, even if listed as light. Two... More

This was a bit pricier than the places I usually go on vacations (cheapest entree is like 13 bucks, most are more than 18) but the service was great and the food was delicious. Happy hour Mai tais were $6.50 and really good. The pupu platter was incredible, even though I'm not huge on fish. Definitely try the ceviche.

If the open windows and view didn't get you the Mai Tais and sashimi will. We walked in after snorkeling for a few hours at Poipu Beach and were greeted with friendly faces and great service. Our group experienced the coconut shrimp, sashimi, charbroiled ono, wasabi shrimp, ahi steak, porcini ravioli, pacific clam linguini/apple wood bacon, kalua pork tacos, ahi... More

Wow! Thanks for the super awesome 5 star review. Sounds like you guys tried just about everything on our menu! Our fresh fish is never frozen and always caught locally from the same fishermen that have been suppling us for the past 33 years. Travel safe and aloha. More
