About Us


The Dolphin Poipu is owned and operated by Brooke and Bryson Sugahara. The couple’s journey started at the The Dolphin’s original location in Hanalei over 20 years ago. They had been working there for years before the company decided to make its mark on the south shore of Kaua‘i. 

“We have always believed in the product” says Brooke and a new location presented them with the opportunity to own and operate a business they love.
The Dolphin Poipu opened in 2012 in the beautiful Shops of Kukui‘ula in Poipu.

It’s clear to see that there is a strong sense of ‘Ohana that lays the foundation of the companies culture. Although there has been many challenges over the years, it’s always been the employees and patrons that has kept Brooke and Bryson persevering.

For an unforgettable taste of local cuisine, The Dolphin Poipu is a must visit. 

Join us for our over-the-top gourmet sushi, specialty cocktails, fresh fish, steak and seafood while enjoying romantic sunset from our fabulous lanai.

Whether you come in or take out, we hope to be your first and last stop in Poipu.
