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

Location, atmosphere, service made for a great date-night. Pretty hard to ruin a steak but a well prepared/presented steak coupled with the three lead words makes for a truly enjoyable evening. I know, despite it being part of the Landry group … get over it. Brenner’s is worth a visit.

Very elegant experience. Outstanding and attentive service. Orders taken and food delivered in an orderly and pleasant pace. Very good selection of main courses, salads, side dishes. The food is professionally prepared. The portions are very generous. Very good wine list to compliment your meal. Also very good desserts to close out the evening.
