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.

“Simply superb”
Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

We had outstanding dinner here recently as part of a group celebration. Brilliant food, great atmosphere, service secondary to none. The private dining room upstairs is a special touch. oNly downside is the place is a little challenging to find.
A Houston institution.

“Found a crab shell, snooty place”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

The front staff looked down their nose at me when I came in. My server was excellent. Food was pretty good but I found a large crab shell in my pasta. Very expensive for the quality and portion size. Parking was a chore too.
Overall, I've had many better experiences at Pappadeux's. If you're going for upscale and feel like dressing up and sitting in the Blues Clues chair, be my guest.

Great restaurant.

Started with the 1-1-1. A little taste of three different soups...I would suggest you don't do this but get a full bowl of the gumbo. That was incredible.
For my lunch I go the duck pot pie...oh my, Wonderful! Dessert, banana foster, of course. You cannot go wrong going here. Fabulous.
