This review is specific for happy hour. We did two happy hours here during our one-week stay in Kawai. The mai tais are excellent. They have served a million Mai Tais, and you will understand why. Sitting at the windows with the breeze blowing in, looking out at the ocean was just what you want in that space between an... More

Do NOT go here without a reservation. They are packed all the time and the bar is a bit tight. The location is right across from the beach so you'll find people in all manners of attire. The food is very straightforward seafood. Nothing fancy but well prepared, large menu, good prices and good service. They serve a mean MaiTai,... More

Great casual atmosphere. Just throw a cover up over your swim suit and put on your flip flops. Food good too.

Great service, well priced happy hour and nice view. Had the wings which were good (but fried). Wife had the veggie burger and the garlic waffle fries were selfish. Would recommend if you're looking for a late night snack or dinner (open till 1130pm and late night happy hour options).

We'd eaten at Brennecke's when we were here 8 years ago, so stopped in again. We made reservations while at the beach in the afternoon for later that evening. We had our first and only mai tais of the trip, plus mac nut encrusted mahi mahi with sweet potatoes and ono and shrimp with jasmine rice and wasabi butter sauce.... More

We had dinner here. They were quite a bit late on our reservations but we were good in the small bar even though crowded. The food we had was great. We had Opah, coconut shrimp, and the fish and linguine dinner. We had excellent service too. And hula pie!

We came here one night since it's one of the few places that are still open late on this side of the island. Their deli closes at 830pm, keep that in mind. So the service is great. The wait staff and servers smile, and enjoy working there. You can really tell. Food is a bit on the eh side, maybe... More

Come for the view PuPus and the tropical cocktails, but don't miss the great fish. The food was great and the service was outstanding. The view across the street on really nice and having the restaurant on the second floor provides a wonderful ocean breeze.

We visited Poipu beach for the day; driving through from the North because of a rainy day. The setting looked great right on the beach and the reviews on Tripadvisor sounded good. The staff was friendly and helpful and we quickly got placed at a table. The place was packed! The reason for my poor review is due to the... More

This was a perfectly acceptable place to eat, but it is not worthy of the publicity it gets. Sort of expensive and average food in a great place.

Thank Amy L D
