My wife had been in hospital for our October 12th anniversary, so when I was given a Brenners gift card on leaving a volunteer position, we knew it was time to celebrate.

I've been visiting this location for 20 years , back when it was Rainbow Lodge and it is undoubtably on of the most unique environments anywhere. The food was excellent, both the steaks and snapper. But there is much better value, both food and atmosphere available in Houston.

I absolutely love the atmosphere of this place. You definitely do not feel like you are in Houston. I had the filet and Parmesan fries and it was just fantastic. I will for sure be back soon!

The staff was friendly and very attentive . This visit was great. I was pleased with the ease of reserving a table online , the parking and the... More

This place is really beautiful and we enjoyed our appetizer on the outside deck of the restaurant in front of the Bayou. The meat is delicious, just as others places in Houston.

I made a reservation via Tripadvisor.com. At that time, I didn't realize that there are 2 Brenner restaurants in Houston. Unfortunately, I made it at the wrong one. By the time I realized my mistake, no table was available at the right one before 9:45 pm and I can't eat that late. It was for our wedding anniversary. We still... More

Look around and let me know but this one is hard to beat for uniqueness. The steaks are on par with only two other restaurants in town. Simply excellent. Shrimp and grits, if you are not into beef is all that is is good about Southern food and the Gulf Coast combined with the spicy hint of chipotle from neighbors... More
