We enjoyed a sunny yet cool Sunday Brunch on the Bayou. The menu offered a few selections, some familiar and some unique options. The portions were suitable and the mimosa's were good. 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

I have just returned from Houston and felt I needed to tell you all about this restaurant, it was delightful. The setting is very pretty in the trees with the Bayou nearby, I felt i was having a meal in a tree house. The waitress was attentive, knowledgeable and helpful in our choice of both food and wine. The steak... More

The word that keeps popping up with this place is "gem" and I couldn't agree more. One of the best steaks I've ever had combined with friendly, courteous and informed service made for a simply wonderful meal. They don't just "phone it in" on the appetizers either, they're so good you could make a meal out of only those. Unlike... More

This is the first time we eat at Brenner's and all i could think of during our romantic dinner was WOW! The carefully crafted cosy interior design blends perfectly with the scenic outlook on the landscaped exterior. It's a renovated old house with wood flooring, stairs and ceiling. It will take you back to your old momma's farmhouse! We had... More

It was one of those hot, steamy Houston nights. Fortunately we were seated inside behind the bar in a long room. Excellent appetizers and friendly wait staff took care of getting is drinks and wine. Entrees were very good. I had the shrimp entree which was great. Desserts were served and exactly perfect. An establishment I will look forward to... More

This place deserved five stars the first time, one star the second time and three/four stars the third time. Service is excellent and attentive but the food has either been fantastic or terrible. (Un)fortunately we live around the corner so this will be/is our hangout and the inconsistency of the kitchen is scary. The second visit with friends was terrible... More

This should get 5 stars by most standards, but I'm spoiled. No this is not like Brennan's in NOLO this is a very hip steakhouse, and an even hipper bar scene. We were greeted by attractive, and gracious hosts. Nice seats. The atmosphere is hard to describe, kind of like an upscale lodge, with outside tables if you like. Go... More
