We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Brenner's Steakhouse on the Bayou. It was a WONDERFUL meal! The filet was so tender and juicy and the peppercorn sauce was delightful! We enjoyed a seared scallop appetizer and Mimosa Salads. Everything was exquisite and our server was absolutely wonderful.

This restaurant is on point. They have valet parking and a nice outdoor atmosphere with the foliage and the bayou. We started with a drink at the bar before dinner. Bartender was friendly and made a killer dirty martini! We got the table on the stairs! It was so cool to have the view of the dining room and the... More

The appetizers, side dishes, and steak were tasty, and the waiter was very attentive. However, the daily catch featured two U6 shrimp, which were foul. As soon as they were placed on the table, they smelled foul, and they tasted even fouler. I was annoyed that the manager (I presume he was the manager) had the gall to suggest that... More

We used to go here when it was the Rainbow Lodge. We usually eat at the Brenner's Steakhouse on the Katy Freeway, but thought the atmosphere would be a good change. We were disappointed in the service and quality of the food for the high price you pay. Also, the soft lighting of the bayou & grounds in the back... More

Dined at Brenner's for the first time to celebrate my birthday. Beautiful restaurant and setting, will return to enjoy the outdoor setting and a cocktail at some point. We ordered a NY strip and 10 oz filet cooked medium + and medium well respectively and it doesn't appear like there was any attempt to the correct temperature. The filet especially... More

Had a very good dinning experience at this restaurant. The food was excellent and the service was great. The view of the Bayou and the surrounding area is breathtaking! The patio or lounge area in the back is very comfortable and romantic. I loved it and I am planning to take the wife back soon! Orville O. Dunk, Esq.

Our party of four arrived just a few minutes before the time of our reservation on New Years Eve and happily, our table was ready. We enjoyed cocktails then ordered dinner. We were never rushed and service was excellent. Our 10 ounce filets were done perfectly and the sides were very good. They have kept a lot of the old... More

On our first night in Houston we decided to enjoy a romantic meal at Brenners on the Bayou. The restaurant had more of a night club vibe than a dining area, and the lighting was so limited numerous guests used their cell phones to read the menus. The service was okay- attentive and efficient. I ordered creole shrimp and grits... More
