Diner Reviews
  • "Brenner's offers a nice scenery in the background and great service but the food was average and doesn't place on my list of top steak houses."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Brenner's never fails to impress. Classy, high quality restaurant you can count on. Steak quality is superb."

  • "We were visiting from out of town and traveling East on the 10. The building and landscaping attracted my attention so I goggled the name. Once I learned the history, it was a must visit. We had been looking for a genuine steak dinner and our experience exceeded expectations."

  • "Went for my birthday and was made to fee very special!"

  • "We enjoyed a great anniversary dinner at Brenner's. We often go here for special occasions. The food was great, served very hot the way my wife likes and the steaks were just the right doneness. Staff was friendly and attentive. We had a nice table overlooking the beautiful garden. It's a calm, relaxing and cozy atmosphere. You forget that you are adjacent to a major highway. We've never been disappointed."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "We were seated in a back room of the restaurant, not the main dining room for some reason. It looked like a banquet area. The table for two was very small. The decor was old and dated."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Food was as expected. It is not the greatest steak in town but the ambience is great. Service is friendly. Love their creamed spinach."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "A perfect place for a family and/or friends get together"

  • "We wanted a special place to dine for our 45th Wedding Anniversary. We had driven past Brenner's many times and always said we wanted to go there sometime. We looked it up online, made our reservations and are so glad we did. We've already recommended Brenner's to our friends and will return for other special occasions. Thank you for a very enjoyable evening."

  • "They always deliver consistent excellency in their food - not overly styled food -- just straight forward - best of the best steaks, game, and fish and attentive service"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The crab balls and quail appetizers were exceptional. The rest of the meal was good but not exceptional. Steak was salty, the way I like it. Those looking to control sodium intake should discuss with server before ordering. Service was excellent."

  • "Delicious and gorgeous. One of our favorite places to celebrate life."

  • "Booked a table for my husbands birthday. They gave us a great spot overlooking the lovely garden and koi pond. Lovely dinner, great service we could not be happier. Will definitely be back"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "A fantastic experience. We were celebrating my son's birthday. This has been his favorite restaurant since the early 1970's. The menu has changed, but the food was delicious. Our waiter was attentive, but did not hover. A bit pricey, but for our nostalgic dinner party Benner's was perfect. As an aside, I was disappointed that the old style German potatoes were not on the menu, but I was able to get some when I asked. They were not quite the same recipe, but did go well with my "able to cut it with a fork" steak."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Brenner's was fantastic! Food was perfect, George our waiter was outstanding. Our out of town guests were very impressed!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "My wife and I celebrated our 16th Wedding anniversary at Brenner's and it was great. The food was good and the wait staff was awesome. Our waitress was very informative and helpful and a pleasure to be served by."

  • "Way to to loud. Everyone has to shout which makes matters worse."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Had a table of 5 for Father's Day. 2 people ordered the same type of steak but different sizes. Both were mixed up how they were cooked. We did not send them back to be corrected.The creamed spinach came out cold and had no taste. Fried Shrimp dinners were sitting on mashed potatoes which made the shrimp soggy.The manager was very nice and tried to make it right by taking off the cost of the creamed spinach and some of the appetizer costs.We have eaten here several times and will continue to go back but even when it is busy the chef needs to slow down and make sure the orders are correct. This established restaurant wants good clients who will come back time and time again and does not want anyone having a negative experience."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The garden was pretty. Other than that the restaurant (in my opinion ) is average. I wouldn't go back. For the price, you can easily find a better restaurant. Flemings, Perry's, taste of Texas are not far from this place on I 10 and are much better and always very consistent."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • " As usual, friendly but professional service. We always leave satisfied and looking forward to a return visit."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Our family has eaten at Brenner's for special occasions many times over the years. The food is good, the service is good and the atmosphere is quaint, but there are a lot of places in Houston like that where you don't have to spend a weeks pay. It struck me this time that it is needlessly EXPENSIVE. There is no way a piece of red meat would should cost $48 (all sides, salads extra) They must make a huge profit because there is just no reason for the prices. I guess its a good place to impress someone with how easily you can throw away money. Maybe I'm just getting too old to show off."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The steaks were excellent. The lobster bisque was tomatoe soup with pieces of lobster stuck in it. I will not order that again. Mac and cheese was wonderful and the desserts were average. My filet was by far the best I've had."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "It was a combination business lunch/romantic encounter. The service and atmosphere could not have been better. When your companion states "I'm in heaven and when are we coming back for dinner" you know you hit the ball out of the park. It was her first time and the restaurant and service lived up to and beyond my pre-lunch build up!"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "We celebrated my wife's birthday at Brenner's this week, the first time I had dined there since it re-opened as a Landry's restaurant. I'm happy to say that the ambience, though freshened, is still the same, and the food is reminiscent of the old place, a nice blend of steakhouse and homestyle Houston with a slight German twist. All three of us had 6 oz filets mignon. My wife and I ordered it as part of the fixed 3-course menu, and our 11-year old daughter took hers a la carte. The a la carte filet was substantially better tasting and more tender, I don't know if this was by accident or by design. The first course beefsteak tomato salad was excellent, as was the apple streudel dessert, and the german potatoes. Good value all in all."
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "I must say that the gardens were absolutely beautiful and the food was very good, but the service leaves something to be desired. We have only been to Brenners one other time about 15 years ago, and it seems that little has changed, as we had poor service then also. For us be at the restaurant at an early dinner hour, to pay over $300 for four people to dine, and see very little of our waiter is beyond comprehension. As this was a graduation celebration, we were sorely disappointed. Needless to say, we will not be returning to Brenners, and will seek another steakhouse in Houston that can deliver on all points."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We would never have known that it was our Waitress's first day had she not told us. She was very attentive and professional."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "This historic gem on the west side is still just as good as when Mrs. Brenner herself did the cooking! Everything about our meal was superb - timing, quality, wine recommendations. You must have the strudel for dessert - there is none better in Houston for sure. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Tried the $42 3-course lunch that was ample plus had nice glass of wine. The 'special' shrimp bisque and way too salty and I couldn't finish it. "
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "needs improvement. Just a simple loaf of bread or a dinner roll & pure butter would be better. Glad they didn't offer a second round. Our steaks were perfect. Service outstanding.."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "Being our first time to dine at your facility, we really didn't know how it would be. Sometimes it is hard to find really nice establishments with out recommendations. This was amazing. I picked Brenner's for my husband's 50th Birthday dinner and also because it is our last name. We have lived in Houston (west side) our whole life and have never been to Brenner's. It was a wonderful dinner. Kristin was the most attentive hostess we have ever had and when we return we will request her."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "My wife's steak was over cooked and no one offered to correct her order."

  • "For lunch or dinning with relatives or friends is a beautiful and nice place. Excelent service and attention! Delicious meal!"
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "My girlfriend and I went here for a romantic dinner. The ambiance I'd fantastic, beautiful outdoor area, and wonderful service. But the food was much less than impressive.. she had the antelope tenderloin, and I the pork porterhouse. The 6oz antelope was about the size of two chicken nuggets, the combination of blue cheese and parsnips was not appetizing. As for the porterhouse, it was large but not well cooked. I ain't be going back as there are too many great restaurants in Houston to pay $150 got an okay meal."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "What a perfect venue to meet our son's girlfriend's parents. Service was impeccable, our steaks were excellent, and view of the gardens and waterfall provided a great backdrop for the evening. Highly recommended for a special occasion!"
