THE HOLY PLACE OF STEAKS

We entertained 2 business associates here yesterday. For all the rave reviews, I rate it as between good and very good but a bit less when you consider value for money. Ambiance is great and the service professionally polished. All meals were rated "very good" but when someone else is paying it's a... read more

We had dinner here on Saturday, May 23rd just before the recent flooding. The gardens on the grounds were beautiful. The wait staff was very accommodating and helpful. The steak and fish dishes we had were very good. Overall, it was a great time at Brenner's Steakhouse on the bayou.

Brenner's on the Bayou host bands every Sunday between Mother's day and Father's day at Blue Bar. The Bar has outdoor covered seating and overlooks the bayou. The bands start at 3PM and it is advisable to get there early if you want a seat. When the weather is nice you can sit on the well manicured lawn of Brenner's... More

Tucked away near Memorial Park, this restaurant has a nice location with plenty of greenspace around. The service was excellent; however, the food was hit and miss. The steak was definitely overdone. Salad and desserts were good. The 3-course chef's menu is definitely a good value for the expense. Appreciated that the server brought the bottle of wine when the... More

We've been here many times because the restaurant, bar, and outdoor lawn are are just gorgeous. The food is great, our service has always been great as well. I'm hoping to be able to one day rave about the lobster but it is pricey and we've stuck with different cuts of steak, thus far. We also went to the craft... More

$78 for the bone in Ribeye...and it was mediocre at best. Not the best piece of steak... Truffle fries were good but a very small portion for a $10 side... Cool location and views... I don't mind expensive - but the food better be outstanding...and its not... Sorry Brenners!

I ordered the hanger steak which was interesting but under done and the side of mushrooms and spinach both of which were very good. Felt like I was being pushed to order more than I needed. Prices reflected a restaurant of excellent quality. The food was very good but not excellent.

I was there for a business function where an assortment of buffet style foods were offered. The Quail wrapped in bacon was dry, the meat dish was also poor which is what surprised me for being a renowned steak house. OK it was a buffet and buffet style foods tend dry out quickly if left for a while (I ate... More
