Good, not great

Popular place, so make a reservation! We didn't, but w we're prepared to brave the Mosquitos and sit outside at one of the handful of tables they have in the pretty (but noisy being located just off the I-10) garden. The food was good, but not top notch which I'd expect at these prices. I had the... read more

Brenner's is a delightful restaurant. They have several small rooms which create a lovely, intimate atmosphere. They also have have a wonderful special occasion venue. But the food is absolutely fabulous. They also have an extensive wine collection and a very knowledgable sommelier. The ONE thing that has kept me coming back for years are the crab cakes. I have...

Brenner Steakhouse in has roots back to 1936 is the longest surviving establishment of its kind in Houston. They have stuck to their original ambition; serve the best steak in Texas; and they do. The staff is very helpful and the ambiance is stylish yet informal. Going here will never disappoint you, whether for business or with your better half.

We hadn't eaten here in several years and were a little worried that the new ownership would adversely affect the quality. We were pleasantly surprised. The wine list is extensive, the menu has plenty of variety for everyone, and the service is still outstanding. We all had the three course meal, which was the most value for the considerable dollars... More

What you would expect from a good stead restaurant! Nice big juicy steaks. Not cheap but a great place to bring a client or date. Valet parking, great service. They have a great 'backyard' with waterfalls, coy ponds and green. If the weather is nice it is a great place to sit. They also have large groups there. Try the... More

Hands down the best steak in Houston! Any time we have guests and they want steak we go to Brenner's. Lovely outdoor area with beautiful scenery- you would never imagine this restaurant has such beautiful landscaping from the freeway. Service is always friendly, helpful and accommodating. Great for parties or quite meals.

Am so sorry to write this review, and not give it a rave review. My husband and I made a special stop in Houston to celebrate my birthday, but most important to have him experience a restaurant I have talked about for years. I moved from Houston/Katy several years back, and kept telling my husband about this amazing restaurant that... More

We made a point of visiting this restaurant based on the excellent reviews and it was easy to get to from the nearby Embassy Suites Energy Corridor hotel (which provided a shuttle service). We were greeted warmly and introduced to our waiter but we both felt that he 'looked down on us' making us feel uncomfortable. He went through the... More

My lady and I dined here on Saturday, April 19th, and the experience was outstanding. From the phone person who took the reservation to the last bite of our meal, this was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. We both started with a salad which was just the right size, then proceeded to a 6 ounce... More
