Great Atmosphere, Great staff and good food

I have been going to Brenner's for some time. Staff is always spot on and the Blue Bar out back is magnificent for a patio drink. Atmosphere is very nice, beautiful landscaping and large scenic patio area (not overlooking traffic or a parking lot) which is hard to find in Houston. Very ralxing... read more

We were looking for a fine-dining restaurant with a view for my 70th birthday dinner, and Brenner’s on the Bayou turned out to be a perfect choice. When we made the reservations, Tracy asked if it was a special occasion and we said yes. As a result, I received warm “Happy Birthday” greetings as we entered and left the restaurant,... More

We we're taken to Brenners by locals after we told them we wanted a really good steak. This place has truly excellent steaks. The Wine cellar is outstanding and the location is perfect. Definitely worth a visit.

I went there last week for my husbands birthday. We were seated right away at a little table pushed against a wall. The window was framed from top to bottom so it was like our own little cubby. They have put rose petals on the table for his birthday. Very romantic. The lights were just low enough to put you... More

We held a dinner event for about 15 people. The food was nice, service good. We had a nice menu with both fish and filet as the main selections. Discuss pricing for events with the correct Dept. One comment: If we had 100 percent attendance this long narrow room (with a view, near the bar area) would gave been very,... More

Outstanding service as you might expect but the food is really really good. best crab cakes in town, cancelled my salad order to get another one. Gulf snapper was equally impressive. Excellent wine list Outside bar area overlooking the bayou

My husband and I went to Brenner's on the Bayou for our anniversary dinner and the ambiance in the place is fantastic! The staff was extremely professional and attentive. The atmosphere and landscaping was really cool to take in. Definitely a must see for any couple looking for a chill place to enjoy a meal or a drink!

Went there with my husband and two friends who are moving away. My husband and I decided to get there early and check out the happy hour and the patio and grounds everyone raves about. It was nice. I think the happy hour is a great deal to check out after work. We ordered the gyro and it was phenomenal.... More

like a small oasis in the desert, this delightful watering hole in downtown Houston. If you are getting married this is a place you would consider without a doubt.. You will need good lungs however there is no lift to the top floor. External steps. food was excellant.
