It hardly seems like a trip to this beach without a stop for lunch here. We were seated quickly, with a great view and a nice breeze. The server was attentive and knowledgeable, without trying to become our buddy and friend. Fish and chips and the ahi sandwich, along with a couple of cold glasses of beer made for a... More

Stopped into this place a couple of times and even met the owner once. Very convenient to Poipu beach for good eats and COLD beer. Try the coconut shrimp - they are awesome.

We had reservations & only had to wait a few minutes to be seated. Ordered a cocktail the staff had never heard of (pretty standard one) but they listened and produced a pretty decent version. Suspect most diners lean towards the sweet, tropical drinks. We opted for light dinners. The pork tacos were ample, even if listed as light. Two... More

This was a bit pricier than the places I usually go on vacations (cheapest entree is like 13 bucks, most are more than 18) but the service was great and the food was delicious. Happy hour Mai tais were $6.50 and really good. The pupu platter was incredible, even though I'm not huge on fish. Definitely try the ceviche.

If the open windows and view didn't get you the Mai Tais and sashimi will. We walked in after snorkeling for a few hours at Poipu Beach and were greeted with friendly faces and great service. Our group experienced the coconut shrimp, sashimi, charbroiled ono, wasabi shrimp, ahi steak, porcini ravioli, pacific clam linguini/apple wood bacon, kalua pork tacos, ahi... More

Wow! Thanks for the super awesome 5 star review. Sounds like you guys tried just about everything on our menu! Our fresh fish is never frozen and always caught locally from the same fishermen that have been suppling us for the past 33 years. Travel safe and aloha. More

There are great views of the ocean here, especially if you have a window table. The food is pretty good but very pricey for what you get. The service was good and the margaritas even better! Great way to enjoy a meal with a great view.

Brennecke's is a wonderful restaurant just across the street from Poipu Beach. The restaurant is on the 2nd floor and the open air design gives you a great view of the beach and partial sunset. The menu and food are great. Our server Lisa took great care of us- she had such a good attitude and did a wonderful job.... More

This was a family-friendly restaurant with excellent mahi-mahi and according to my husband, the gold-standard of the island, comparing it as better than the one he had at the Zagat-rated St. Regis's Kauai Grill in Princeton. Lovely wait staff and young bartender was friendly and gave us all kinds of travel advice related to the north shore of the island.... More

We went here for happy hour. Got a table in view of the ocean...although it states "right on the beach"-there is a park that is in front of your view that would be "right on the beach" but it is still a great spot. We enjoyed the drink specials and apps. The wait staff is very friendly and we went... More

Thank you for your 5 star review! We love what we do, and I am glad it shows. If we could build on the county park across the street....trust me we would. :) We appreciate your review, business, and kind remarks about our FUN wait staff. Aloha. More

Location is nice, right across from Poipu Beach. There's a parking lot and sat at a table near the open windows facing the beach. We opted for a few drinks and some snacks. Coconut shrimp was good but even with the special its kinda pricey at $10 for 5 pieces. Mai tais were a bit sweet but still good although... More
