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

We recently had a birthday dinner and Brenner's and came away a bit disappointed. We have been to this location several times during the past year and the quality of the steaks (rib-eye's in particular) has decreased. The location is excellent with great views of the Bayou and great atmosphere and the service was excellent, but a $78 bone-in ribeye,... More

Beautiful view of the grounds, very attractive atmosphere in restaurant. We had nine in our party. The servers were exceptionally attentive. Most of us had the filet which just melted in our mouths. You have many choices for sides which are served family style. We had au gratin potatoes, mac and cheese and creamed spinach. Very, very delicious! Outstanding meal... More

I had a rave review from a local when visiting a girlfriend in Houston this weekend. We were told to make reservations, so reservations we made. They sat us inside and quickly brought us sparkling water and bread to munch on. Seeing the gorgeous scape of the Bayou as mentioned, we asked to sit outside and forgo the reservation we... More

What is there NOT to like about a restaurant in Houston, close to town, offering UNRIVALED views of the bayou, that's quiet, has an absolutely spectacular bar, the best service in town, and food that's absolutely to die for?! My husband and I tried every "5-star" restaurant in town before selecting Brenner's for our wedding "reception" dinner...the team did a... More

Brenner's on the Bayou is in the same location as the Rainbow Lodge, so anyone who has eaten there knows what an amazing building and view are included with your meal. There are a number of interesting locations to sit. You can sit near the bar and look over a park or sit next to the stairs halfway between two... More

From the moment you walk up the sidewalk a feeling of rustic country living sets in. The rafters and wood work inside just makes you feel comfortable. The outside patio is also not to be missed as its facing the bayou, has great seating areas, a separate bar and just very laid back for socializing with family, friends, or a... More
