Brennecke's has a late 60's surfer shack sort of vibe. Not the place you go for an elegant romantic meal. Just great food and fabulous service. Everyone at Brennecke's was extremely friendly and engaging. They will be happy to help give you recommendations on things to do on the island. It's not a fancy place, but does have tables with ocean views as they are directly across the street from an Ocean front park. My Ahi Tuna was phenomenal as was the Ono.
Caution- don't let the ambience fool you into thinking this will be a cheap meal. The prices (like everything on Kauai) are steep. But THIS meal was worth it.

Thank you for joining us for lunch. We also have terrific happy hours (3-5pm and 8:30 until closing) and the Dinner menu has much more variety than lunch-time. Try us for Dinner, you'll be pleasantly surprised. Mahalo.

This place is a MUST stop for us on our trips to Kauai (every 5 yrs for wedding anniversaries). The view can't be beat, the Mai Tais are just what you expect (with paper umbrellas and all), and if you come between 3-5 you get them at a discount during happy hr. This time we also enjoyed one of their happy hr pupus, the Brennecke's Slider Trio, and it was stunningly good for happy hr food! The late afternoon lightning is just beautiful on Poipu beach... And yes we've had two Mai Tai's... The place is worth a stop, a drink and a bite! It's been 16 years since our first visit, and we will return again next time. Thanks for being here Brenneckes! Mahalo!

Thank you. You're right, I've got a great location, but over the year's I've seen lots of good locations go by the wayside because of lack of attention to detail. I have a good management team, that works with team players and fresh products. I thank you. Mahalo.

After a day in the sun at the beach directly across the street) we walke over for happy hour. They had some yummy drinks featured and great appetizers. We ended up having appetizers for dinner. The coconut shrimp was great, but the real deal is the nachos. Huge serving and wonderful. Check them out. Happy hour starts early so you might want to check the time.

If you want to feel some sense of "home", this is the place. Local watering hole feel, with plenty of character. Great bartenders, decent food, outstanding view. I find myself here nearly evey afternoon when Im on the Island.
