Good steakhouse for a date

This is a very nice place to go on a date. The place has a nice bar on the back deck which is nice if your waiting. The food was really good and the service was top notch.

A friend and I met here for happy hour and dinner. The martinis at the Blue bar were delicious. The outdoor spaces [while blazes hot in August] were fantastic and right above the bayou. We chose a Restaurant Week dinner and it was very good.

It's been years since we were here and decided to try it again during HRW - I had forgotten about the stairs - We had late reservations - 9:30pm and only had to wait a few minutes to be seated downstairs - Tree house elegance - great table near the center of the room. Service was excellent - Two of... More

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 bit rich to complain - n'est pas?... 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
