Brennecke’s Beach Broiler
Offering a robust menu of salads, gluten free options, steak, and fresh, never frozen, seafood options every diner is sure to be pleased. Brennecke's is the only full service ocean view open air dining on Poipu Beach with daily happy hours from 3-5pm and 8:30 til closing. Live music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights starting at 7:30pm. Join us for lunch, dinner, or our world famous Mai Tai! Reservations highly recommended.
Had reserved table and was seated right away. Fun ambiance and overlooking Poipu beach park. Varied menu. We opted for the fresh fish special. The chef was quite heavy on the salt which took away from an excellent food rating. However service was superb.
Always eat here when we are on the island. Good food and friendly staff! Highly recommend!
Thank you Doreen for your excellent 5 star review! Aloha.
Just another overpriced Kauai beach bar. Fine for a quick bite or happy hour but don't expect a high quality dining experience.
Thank you for your review and your business. We do our best to serve quality food at reasonable prices with a fun atmosphere for the entire family. We hope to see you again in the future. Aloha.
Perfect spot before or after the beach at Poipu.
We agree! Thanks for the review and your business. Aloha.
We have been coming to Brenneckes for over 25 years and it never disappoints. The food and drinks have changed with the times but always for the better. This is truly a Kauai classic.
Awwww thanks for the great 5 star review. We also appreciate the continued business over the past 25 years. We all look forward to your next visit. Aloha.
Leckeres Essen mit Meerblick,
Wir waren 2x dort Essen und es war jedesmal gut. Wenn man die Vorspeise auch wirklich vor dem Hauptgericht essen möchte, sollte man das Hauptgericht auch erst im Anschluss bestellen.
Die MaiTai‘s sind sehr lecker und das Bier gibt es auch im Pitcher, wir haben das BigWave aus Kona genommen.
Food was great and service even better!
A Poipu must! Great service and each staff member is so friendly. Delicious food from a menu with many options. Enjoyed the pupus very much as well as the ahi tacos, daily catch. Awesome ocean breeze and slight views of the beach depending where you sit. Great customer experience.
Lauren thanks for your excellent 5 star review. We all work hard every day to accomplish each and every 5 star review.
Fun, high-energy experience. Local vibe, despite being a tourist favorite. Breath of fresh-air from the stuffy resort restaurants.
It was just ok. Great view. Poor furnishings. Lots of off the beach traffic. Prices were a little high for the state of the restaurant (30 dollar range for entrees). I will say the food seemed fresh; Shrimp Scampi was portioned generously.
Nice view and really good food with decent portions.
Soooo much food! Great value, great music, great find!
We appreciate your business Sunny. Aloha.
Nice view of the beach and waters but don't really see the sunset so much. Food was average. I ordered the prix fix menu as I was running the half marathon. The menu item was pasta but the sauce was not what I expected. I ordered seafood pasta and expected a white sauce but was red but tasted rich in butter. Not to my palette but maybe someone else's. The dessert was yummy though. I would still go back to try other items.
Our table was amazing- right by the ocean! The food was very good. We got fish tacos, the fish sandwich, kids chicken tenders & kids burger- & a burger to go. The fish was great but I asked for it without the sides & it still came with all of them which wasn’t a big deal- I just felt bad about wasting the food. The kids burger was huge & the fries were all really good & hot. The service was good but not always there when needed. We ordered a few drinks at the end that never came but we weren’t charged for them so no big deal. It’s a great beach spot with good food & I felt totally comfortable with my kids there. I’d love to walk over from the beach in the middle of the day & have a few drinks!
Macademia crusted mahi mahi was outstanding!!! We ate at a table overlooking the beach and ocean. Friendly service. Would definitely go back!
Thank you for your excellent 5 star review. We appreciate your business. Aloha.
Solid dinner steps away from Poipu beach
We appreciate your review and business. Aloha.
Our server was AMAZING as were all the waiters and waitresses. Just a bit lack luster on the food. It was good food, just a bit overpriced for the quality. Some of the fish options were delicious, just the sides to go with them, rice or mashed potatoes tasted like boxed everything, the veggies too were soggy and gross. Would happily come back for the sashimi or a burger but would save my $35+plate meal for a better eatery.
Thank you for your honest review Vikki. We are always changing our menu for seasonal vegetables, current menu trends like the plant based burger craze or basic updates. I will share your review with our kitchen staff and know that we do care. Aloha.
great bar across the street from the ocean. the food is moderately priced. The service, atmosphere and friendly staff are 5 star
Thanks John for your review. Aloha.
Our meals were great!
Thank you for your excellent 5 star review. We appreciate your business. Aloha.
Good atmosphere, happy and friendly staff.
Food good quality and tasted great.
Mahalo and aloha.
We have now been 3 times and enjoyed our food, drinks, friendly staff, atmosphere, etc. We brought friends with us this last time and they too enjoyed it. Hope to return next time we come to the island.
Sue, Thank you for your excellent 5 star review. We appreciate your trust to bring friends with you as well. Aloha.
Very nice, beautiful setting and excellent food. Would highly reccomend.
Thank you for your 4 star review. We appreciate your business. Aloha.
Amazing ocean view with very tasty food. A remarkable deal considering it's location. Ate dinner there twice during a four day trip.
To avoid for a dinner. Expensive and the fish was not fresh
Wonderful Hawaiian restaurant! It's how it should be when on the islands. Perfect!
We were celebrating my Mom’s 80th Birthday! We had a wonderful ocean view table, our server was fantastic and the owner gave us VIP treatment!
Excellent service, yummy entrees and amazing views. A must do dining spot on Kauai.
Thanks for the excellent 5 star review. Aloha.
The food was not very good. Especially the patty melt which I asked for medium and was well done/ burnt both times. Fish and chips had a ton of bread on them.
Sorry about the poor dining experience. Try us again and you'll see why we are still open after 36 years. Aloha.
Need more variety in the menu. Also, train staff to give better recommendations and know the specials of the night.
Sorry about the poor service and small menu. We have a pretty wide variety and well balanced menu consisting of seafood, beef, chicken and vegetarian options. Our staff should know the nightly specials, as well as, have a couple personal recommendations....we agree. We hope to see you again. Aloha.
We all appreciate it. Aloha.
We went here twice during our trip. Great food, incredible view & fantastic service. Will definitely be back next time we are in Kauai!
We appreciate your business and look forward to your next visit with us. aloha.
Great casual location by the beach and good pub fare - must have the coconut shrimp appetizer! Had a great conversation with the waitress about how our parents visited Bernnecke’s 20 years ago - the place is a legend. The one thing that didn’t sit well with me afterwards was the request for ID with our credit card - left a bad taste in my mouth...
Aloha Tall Canadian Girl, we appreciate your family's continued support over the past 20+ years and we hope to see you again in the future. Our policy is to ask for ID's on credit card purchases just to go the extra step against fraud....please don't take it personal. Someday we hope to allow guest's to run the credit cards at their table, but we are not quite there yet. Aloha.
Good receipt, good food and well placed
Food was fantastic view was gorgeous!!
Thank you Kimberly. Aloha.
Bonne ambiance tres bon service et tres bonne cuisine
Loved Brenneke's for a casual lunch before Waiamea Canyon Bike Ride. The food was excellent the only reason for the 4 star rating was the fish and chips 'fish' came out way under cooked. The waitress was awesome and got the replacement quickly but we were all done with our meal at this point. The view is amazing and we had a reservation and table was ready. Plus was the Impossible Burger and several vegetarian options.
Lovely food although one in our party got one shrimp and one scallop instead of two shrimp on the fish and shrimp meal. Friendly service and great view of sunset over beach.
Perfect! Good food for a good price. We had the Nachos and one portion is more then enough, maybe share it 😉
THANKS FOR THE GREAT 5 STAR REVIEW. ALOHA.
Food took over 90 minutes to arrive. Food was mediocre. Flies everywhere - ate us alive while we were waiting for our food. Horrible experience for our last night in Kauai. Thankfully waitress was nice and comped our food.
The date of your visit was a very difficult night of service. We should have closed to the public due to short staffing, especially in the kitchen. As for the flies, we are an open air dining restaurant, I don't see many if any complaints about them ever. Wish you could have alerted some on the staff with your concerns. We apologize for the poor dining experience. Try us again with a reservation and please let a member of our management team know of your previous visit. Aloha.
