We have been to Brennecke's many times over the years while vacationing in Kauai. While we went here last year and were disappointed, we decided to give it another try this year and were very happy we did. So far after a week on the island, it is the best dinner we have had. The fish was outstanding as well... More

Ate lunch at Brennecke's, right across the street from Poipu Beach. Really good and great Mai Tai's. I had the pulled pork hamburger and it was unbelievable.

We go here for the view! Go early and get a front row seat to the most fabulous sunset over Poipu Beach. Enjoy the salad bar and delicious entrees. My fav is the fresh catch of the day--if you love fish you can't go wrong--they never disappoint!

A bit dirty and service was average, but food was okay. Not high on my places to go again. Perhaps would be good for lunch if hanging at the nearby beach.

We ( 3 couples) spent the day at Poipu beach, snorkeling near Koloa and touring before going to Brennecke's. We were glad we choose this eatery. Great food and drinks for a more that reasonable cost.

This location has a great view of the ocean as it is second floor dining. No sunsets regrettably. Fresh fish and vegetables make this a preferred dining location deep in the heart of the resort district. Service was excellent with a very helpful, attentive waiter. Our dishes came quickly and hot! Deserts were tempting but the main course filled us... More

Nice.. Location-Ocean Front. Menu offers variety. Steak, prime rib, ribs, fish etc. Portion and pricing is good. It upstairs. Not sure about ADA. The Macadamia Crusted Mahi was yummy and the staff was great. Overall a great place for dinner or lunch or breakfast.

Average rating, not the best food, and not the worst. Close to Poipu beach area . Brennecke Beach Boiler can get crowded , mid-afternoon, a short wait to be seated at a table.

Had a chicken Caesar salad and my wife had the Arugula salad. Both were very tasty. We saw food delivered to some other nearby tables. Portions were large and all looked good. They also take reservations.

We had a great dinner at Brennecke's, and ended up returning for a second dinner when vacationing in Kauai. Our party of four hit lots of items on the menu, and I don't think anyone was disappointed with anything ordered. Most of us had dishes with fish or seafood, but my favorite was the kalua pork tacos. We read one... More
