Way overpriced for the ambiance and quality. The atmosphere is beach casual, but the prices are quite a bit higher. We had the pupu platter for an appetizer, and that was good, but it was downhill from there.

I had the seafood kabobs and my husband ordered a steak. Our food was stone cold when it arrived. The garlic butter for my kabobs had been plopped on top and hadn't melted at all, the food was so cold. Husband's steak was ordered medium, came well done, and was so full of fat and gristle it was only about 1/3 edible. The server was very nice and they did make an adjustment to the bill, but it was still too much for the atmosphere and quality of food.

I'm a local here and went for my birthday because Keoki's had a 1.5 hour wait for dinner. It was a Tuesday night, and although there were only half of the tables full we still waited 15 minutes for a table because they had sent some of the staff home since it was slow.

Our dinner arrived quickly, but my $30 NY sirloin steak was way past well done although I had ordered medium. There was no flavor to the steak, it was very tough, and no condiments on the table. The vegetables (green beans) were also bland and overcooked. The mashed potatoes were undercooked.

It was a very disappointing and terrible meal. The people next to us were enjoying their fish dishes. Maybe if you absolutely have to eat here, eat the fish.

The waiters and waitresses were okay, not friendly and not unfriendly. They checked on us often, but made no small talk. This is touted as a higher class resturaunt, believe me, this food is not worth the very high prices they charge. If you would like to see their menus and prices go to www.kauaimenu.com

The best thing about this place is probably the sunset view. But, you could just as well get a picnic lunch, sit on the beach across the street and enjoy an even more beautiful view.

Brennecke's has the freshest fish and they know how to prepare it. Hamburgers are not bad, either. Their second-story view of Poipu Beach is hard to match. Downstairs, try their Shave Ice with a scoop of ice cream.

Brennecke's is a terrific location if you're staying at one of the Poipu resorts as we were. Open air, 2nd floor restaurant overlooking the beach. Food was good and the fish prepared several different ways. Salad bar, vegetables, and starch included in the price of the meals. We had two boys who enjoyed the pizza and salad bar. Not cheap for kids, but not too bad considering it wasn't a low end restaurant. The service was oustanding. Waitresses were very efficient, very friendly and had a good sense of humor. We had a pitcher of margaritas with our meal and it was quite reasonably priced.
