Our steaks were perfectly marinated and the lobster bisque was delicious. I found the potato cakes that came with the steak a bit too sweet but everything was delicious otherwise. A special mention for the impeccable service: our waiter was always one step ahead of us, filling up our glasses, suggesting we take a break on the large patio before... More

My husband and I were celebrating our 29th Anniversary and decided on Brenner's for dinner. It was VERY pricey, but everything from beginning to end was absolutely perfect. Service was extremely attentive, the food was delectable, and they even wrote on our dessert plate in chocolate wishing us a Happy 29th Anniversary (see pic). The ONLY negative thing I have... More

My wife and I recently ate at this restaurant. My wife and I had the same comment - "This is one of the best meals that we have had in a long time," I ordered a steak and my wife ordered the shrimp. Both were cooked to perfection and the sides were very good. The service was also exceptional. Overall,... More

If you're staying in downtown and want a great meal that isn't far away, I suggest Brenners on the Bayou. Great happy hour deck out back overlooking the Buffalo Bayou, and the menu usually serves up an impressive meal with local/regional twist. The 3-course meal is a best-buy at $42 and usually has at least three entree options, including a... More

The scenery is absolutely gorgeous, the food was delicious and the service was fantastic. Complimentary valet parking added to the exuberance. The wine or alcohol must be good there because our waiter was very persistent with recommendations even after we shared that we don't drink. My wife and I will return very soon. I recommend requesting a "view of the... More

I really enjoyed the atmosphere. The bar was on the small side, but it has a great patio to have drinks. The steaks were delicious. The wine list was also excellent. Service was outstanding. I will definitely return soon.

Went for happy hour at the Blue Bar. Great deal on the drinks and food. Great view at the deck and beautiful surroundings. Will be back.

We just went to Brenners on the Katy Freeway for our 25th anniversary and have gone there for years. A painful experience. None of the old staff are there and the service that was one of their hallmarks, is sadly gone. The fillet was burned on the outside and very rare on the inside, not as ordered. The lobster tail...

Houston is filled with hidden treasures and Brenner's on the Bayou is an excellent example of that. Located off Memorial Ave and Birdsall, Brenner's is a gem to the city of Houston. You'll forget you're in Houston and think you're in some exotic, tropical paradise. Built around Houston's famous bayou, Brenner's incorporates the beautiful scenery into a posh, upscale restaurant.... More

My hubby and I went here for date night and it was just an overall wonderful experience. We arrived early, ahead of our reservation, and had drinks at the bar. We made it up to our table and had an amazing dinner. We both ordered filet and shared the smoked mac & cheese. Just delicious!! Our server was great, overall... More
