I dine here nearly monthly and I am NEVER disappointed and I don't say that very often. The service is always great, the food is delicious, the Bloody Mary's are wonderful and the view is breath takingly beautiful!

I made reservations for a dinner with my wife through Open Table and mentioned that it was our anniversary. We were greeted at the hostess desk with a Happy Anniversary and were seated in an area overlooking the park. The waiter also told us Happy Anniversary and when our dessert was brought out, the chef and written Happy 39th Anniversary... More

We like to go here at Holiday time with the family. Food is good and there is something for everyone. Can be a bit pricey. It is not quite the same since the original owners sold.

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. Get the negative out of the way first: it was expensive. Without the gift card we would not have gone there. Having said that, the service was excellent,... More

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!
