Diner Reviews
  • "Have eaten here many times for birthday celebrations and it always delivers. Waiter was excellent and actually chased us as we were leaving because we accidentally left a couple of "to go" desserts! The steaks are the best in town. My only complaint is the noise level if the dining room is full, which is always is...even on a slow Wednesday night it was packed! Chef was nice enough to tweak a dish and bring me only blackened shrimp which was delish. Charred yet moist...have no clue how they do that!"

  • "Still the best steak in Houston. Lots of competion around now but the restaurant was packed albeit with oil and gas money and doing deals over a martini and steak. Does it get any better?"

  • "We had a great time and the steak and food was great! We love the garden scenery too!"

  • "Took my wife to Brenner's because the restaurnat we typiclly use doesn't accept reservations and didn't feel like standing in line for 45 minutes becasue it was Friday. Brenners accepted a reservation, seated us promptly in a lovely dinning room with a sophisticated yet somewhat old word ambience. Service and food was perfect. The small dinning room became a bit noisy towards the end of our meal as the restaruant filled up to capacity. Would recommend for special occasions as it is on the pricy side, but I felt we received value."

  • "I wanted to like Brenners, I really did. The restaurant is lovely, the ambiance great. However from being told our sever was 'busy' and would be with us 'soon' on being seated through to his breaking of mid sentence to speak to a diner on another table, to watching our severs bring out our food, place nearby to us and then wonder which table it was for (once again our server was busy at this point) and then finding a piece of plastic on my steak I just cant mark this higher. We will try again as we may have caught them on an off night, but for the price both my partner and I left underwhelmed talking of all the things that could have gone better."

  • "We had never been to the "original" Brenner's Steakhouse, but found a true gem. Great food, service, and ambiance. For a special occasion or just a nice "date night, it is well worth it. We will be back."

  • "This place is gorgeous! The food is top notch and the service is even better! I would recommend the blackened red snapper with a side of their german potatoes. For seating, the main room middle window table seems to be the best. For outside however, you'll want to request table 100. Hands down the best table in Houston if you're looking to wine and dine a beautiful lady. Buen provecho!"

  • "We had seen this establishment for many years along I-10 and had never made the effort to plan to attend. We had reservations and were immediately seated upon our arrival. We visited for my Wife's birthday and we had a great evening and experience. Their courtyard was very charming and we were very impressed. The service was great and very attentive to our needs. They were not overly hovering over us, but made sure we had what we needed. The food was very good, a little pricey, with a good selection of choices. We each had the 3 course menu items, and may very well try a non combo item so that we can try some of the other very appealing choices available. If looking for a nice quiet special occasion meal, this is the place."

  • "Brenner's has always been one of the best, if not the best, steakhouse in Houston. When Landry's took it over, it even got better. Now they have jammed so many tables in, and gazumped the prices to ridiculous levels - the wine list, while very good, is the most egregious example - that the experience ain't what it used to be. The food's still the best, but hardly worth it. Managers now cannot or will not adjudicate the points on the loyalty program - this too is a characteristic of other Landry's Restaurants - but we don't expect the same level of cognitive ability at Saltgrass (for example) as has always been the case at Brenners. The Open Table scam, not unique to Brenners, is problematic for any restaurant that it afflicts."

  • "This steakhouse is definitely the best I've ever been to and I go to as many as I can. This was perfect for a romantic night with my wife but at the same time it would have been great for a simple night out with friends who enjoy being able to talk and eat a great meal. If you are looking for cheap don't eat here but the food and service make the price well worth it. I will be going back and I will be recommending it to all my friends."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "In spite of the fact that my wife and I are long-time Houston residents, neither of us had ever been to Brenners. So, we chose it as the venue for our anniversary celebration. Brenner's did not disappoint. The setting, food, service and ambiance were all five-star. We'll not only go back; we'll recommend it to others."

  • "Seth was a fabulous waiter.Had to wait a litle longer than I thought we should for our table but I did get a great table where I had requested. FMy compliments to the well stocked bar - especially for Scotch drinkers. Food was outstanding. I always enjoy dining at Brenner's on I10"

  • "Second time I went to Brenner's. I was again surprised about the quality and taste of the food. It was busy and the waiter had therefore not all attention towards our table resulting in late drinks at start. The rest of the visit he provided good service. This restaurant is highly recommendable."

  • "excellent food, great small restaurant atmosphere, prices are not cheep but very reasonable for the quality of the food. The only negative is server will push to up sell a little"

  • "My boyfriend and I went for a special evening out. I expected the restaurant to be pretty and it was. We were seated alone in a back dining room, which may be why our service was less than ideal. We ordered the crab cake for an appetizer, recommended by our first waiter (the waiter changed more than once) and it wasn't hot when it came to the table - and it came to the table very quickly. Steaks were not cooked to our temperature requests. Sauteed spinach was yum. Overall pleasant, but we won't rush back."

  • "It's unusual to find such a lovely spot right on the Katy Freeway feeder road. I've always heard wonderful things about Brenner's and this was my first time to have dined there. The garden with moving water is a great focal point. The food was outstanding as was the service. The only problem we had while we were there was the noise levee. We WILL go back, maybe earlier in the evening when it's not so crowded and noisy. I just feel when you go to such a nice restaurant it usually if for a"

  • "The best steakhouse in Houston. Great ambience, not jam packed full of people like Pappas. Great wine selection. Fantastic customer service. Most accomodating place. Special off the menu requests welcomed. Noise level low to medium and easy to have conversations. I will keep going back!"

    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "When asked if everything was OK, I mentioned that the red pepper flakes/seeds on the crab cake were too hot and not an improvement. They apologized and made a note in my Landry's membership record so they will serve my crab cake without them next time. Very professional. Wish it weren't so loud here; the view and dining room are lovely."

  • "We were seated at window and it was very scenic, HOWEVER, workmen should hold off on working in the garden til after lunch rush. Also, you forget that you're on the freeway within the urban jungle."

  • "My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Brenner's Steak House. I had the house salad with a very good blue cheese vinaigrette. My husband had the tomato-gorgonzola soup and was ready to lick the bowl. Our steaks were perfectly cooked and we had the scalloped potatoes. The asparagus were a little on the large side and more than a little al dente. My husband had the apple strudel with ice cream and was very happy to have his favorite dessert. Overall we had a wonderful time with good service and good food."

  • "We have been to Brenner's previously for date nights and special occasions. This was our first trip with the entire family. We have two sons (7&3) that we try to take with us when we can. The Service and food were as to be expected at Brenner's, excellent. We were seated in the back/group room. Our waiter made every effort to include our oldest son in the experience. Complimenting and commenting on his choices for dinner. He even turned down the AC as two vents were blowing directly on our table. Overall this could not have been a better dinner. I was, as usual, completely satisfied with the food and service at Brenner's."

  • "We had our Valentine's dinner here, which was great, I had Red Snapper with Asparagus and my husband had Lamb Shank. Add some champagne and you need nothing more! The only thing I didn't like that much was that we felt a bit rushed, as our starter and main meal was being served so quickly and usually they give you a little time in between to just enjoy your surroundings and have a chat, be romantic :o) But I guess it was a busy night, still no excuse as we wanted to enjoy our evening without being rushed. Other than that, the food was lovely and our waiter very friendly and helpful and knowledgeable."

  • "Our first time there and we will surely be back. Judson was our waiter and we couldnt have asked for anyone better. The Au Gratin potatoes were to die for! My husband had the Filet Mignon and I have the Red Snapper, but were amazing. For Desert I had the Best Creme Brulee' ever. We had a great time. Next time we will request a table outside because it was so beautiful, did even realize we were in Houston."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The Valentines day menu was excellent, the choices were well balanced. The staff were very attentive and knowledgeable, my only complaint, this was meant to be a lovely evening. Some hopes on a long romantic evening as we had all four courses in under 50 minutes, no time enjoy each other's company. Never knew that Brenner's was a fast food place."

  • "Brenner's is an annual Valentine's Day tradition for us. The food is always great, the wine list is hard to beat, the service is always good and the ambiance is good for a romantic dinner. We will keep going back......."

  • "I made reservations for Valentines Day about 3 weeks early; it would have been nice if someone would have asked if we preferred to dine in your dining room our outside on your lovely garden. We have dined outside at your restaurant and it was a beautiful experience. We certainly enjoyed out dining room experience but, if we would have been offered a choice outside that would have been the response. Nevertheless, we had a great time and the food and service were impeccable; we enjoyed your Valentine Day menu."
