Description: Since our 1967 opening as a sister restaurant to the world-famous Commander's Palace in New Orleans, Brennan's of Houston has evolved into the city's premier destination for memorable dining served with true Southern hospitality. From the reservationist to the waiters, chefs and every associate behind the scenes, our team is focused on the highest standard of excellence and equally dedicated to creating enduring memories of snapshots in time: the sealing of business deals, wedding proposals, joyful celebrations, and the marking of significant milestones along life's way. And the proof is in the (bread) pudding, with loyal patrons returning time and again to create new memories.Reflecting the same warmth as our friendly greeting, each farewell concludes with Brennan's signature lagniappe: an abundance of unforgettably fresh pecan pralines.

I'm from Louisiana, so I'm very picky on my cajun/creole food. Brennan's is top-notch, and you must have their Turtle soup. We went on Easter, and the meal was great.

You just can't go wrong....this is THE Houston staple. Best brunch, hand's down. Have a special occasion? This is the place. Always memorable, delicious and unobtrusive servers...order with confidence, as they are incredibly on their game. Oh, the fact that a 'Terms of Endearment' scene was shot here, always makes it more special for me...I have been going here for over 40 years...

The ambiance was delightful especially with a Quartet playing Jazz music. We had brunch for my daughter's birthday. The crab cake was scrumptious and my favorite. The meal would not be complete without Brennan's Banana Foster.
