Nice views! Great drinks! Good food. A little pricey, but basically you're paying extra for the location and views. I had the grilled chicken sandwich and it was pretty good. The Lava-flow's were excellent!!! The service was very good!

We had just arrived in Poipu, Kauai from Maui and were hungry and tired. The concierge at the resort had recommended this place, and it was close, so we gave it a try. We were not disappointed! Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. We ordered a pupu sampler, and it was delicious - a variety of raw and seared... More

Had dinner here recently. Dining area is upstairs and is small. We waited at the bar for a table. Tables were spaced very close together and everything was kind of tight. Food was good.

Stayed in a vacation rental near Poipu for a few days and this was one of the closest restaurants to us. The view is awesome from the restaurant! Request a window table if you can. We went two separate times to Brennecke's and I can say that the crusted Mahi Mahi was the better of the two entrees I had.... More

Unless you are there for late afternoon happy hour this place is over priced. You pay for the view. Any place that has a gift shop selling their merchandise will not be fine dining.

Had a good meal here. Tables are arranged a little tight, so not much elbow room. Had a weird experience with no wind that night and so lots of bugs were outside and some made it inside. But didn't ruin our night or meal. Great staff and service.

Dave was the best choice for catering for our wedding. We loved the food during our tasting and amazingly, the food on the wedding night was even better. He was one of the easiest vendors to work with and was highly accommodating and responsive. He was relaxed about the timing of the final guest count and provided us linens at... More

We ate at Brennecke's Beach Broiler our first night on Kauai because of its proximity to our rental home. The views were lovely, but the prices were surprisingly high. We later came to realize that 'sticker-shock' is a typical reaction for mainlanders visiting Hawaii. The Ahi Tuna Tacos were great, but my husband found the hamburger overpriced and inadequate. The... More
