The view is very nice but we were seated at a table in back behind a large family so we couldn't see much. The food was fine but not special.

Brennecke's is as the name says-right on the beach. The food and beverage menu is extensive and the food is well prepared and very good. The coconut shrimp appy is delicious and the fish and chips are scrumptious! Beware, the portions are large! The prices are pretty good for Kauai. Reservations for the restaurant are a must as this place... More

Great service, delicious food and amazing drinks! The view is absolutely incredible. I have to say they have a Brennecke's drink made with Kauai's Koloa Coconut Rum that is refreshing and delicious. Relaxed and fun atmosphere.

My wife and I were on a day trip from the Princeville Westin to Poipu and we read some reviews about Brennecke's. It was a great place for lunch. The Mai Tai was amazing as well as the bloody mary. Food was good. Worth having lunch there.

Really great service, good happy hour mai-tais, unbelievable view if you get one of the right tables. Plus, the food was fresh and delicious (you have to have fish here!).

We always stop and have a lunch at Brennecke's on our annual return to Kauai. Usually we are delighted with the lunch. This year we were disappointed with the food and service. I had my usual order of "Fresh Hawaiian Ahi Sandwich". It was not fresh, tasted fishy, and was tough. The fries were cold. My husband had Bacon Gorgonzola... More

I was last at Brennecke's back in 1990 when we last visited Kauai. It really hasn't changed, which is good. We stopped by during 'happy hour' and had a very nice meal and drinks for good prices. The view of Poipu Beach was excellent and we saw some whales in the distance. The staff was friendly and service was good.... More
