Brenner’s Steakhouse Katy Freeway
Lunch at BrennersI have gone to Brenners on Katy Freeway often for special lunch occasions. The food is great but portions I find small for the cost. The lunch menu for a main meal from the $29 to $39. They need a lighter, less expensive lunch menu for ladies who want to go somewhere special and not spend that much money. I wouldn't go there and pay myself, not at lunch.
The onion soup was great! But, I expected french onion soup as you get elsewhere. Now that I know, OK, it was a creme onion soup and the portion was small, again for the price $8 or $10 at lunch!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSteak and the gardenI have gone to Brenner's twice now and both times I was blow away by the food, service, and building. Brenner's is really a gem of West Houston. I think Landery's has done a great job in keeping its tradition and not turning it into "just another steak house".5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love Brenner's, Katy FreewayBrenner's always accomodates our seating preference next to the window with garden view.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day dinnerI took my wife who is pregnant with twins to have a specials Mother's Day dinner. The landscaping is absultley amazing and was being taken advantage of by taking family photo's after dinner. Great food and excellent service! Even with the extra crowd at Mother's Day the service and food were timely and great!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great steaksBrenner's never fails to serve excellent steaks, cooked properly to order. The waiter was a little ostentatious, but attentive anyway.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for Mother's DayBrenner's has retained the original German ambience and menu influence. Our group of 4 had 4 different preferences on how steak should be prepared, and the kitchen accommodated each perfectly. One of our party requires gluten-free, and they thoughtfully provided a pre-prepared gluten-free menu (though it took a few minutes to retrieve). Attentive service and great deserts. Over-all a good experience from start to finish.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect For Mother's DayMy wife and I hosted both mothers here for Mother's Day. We were seated in the side house off the main restaurant and accordingly I was concerned that the service might be less attentive. Those concerns were for naught though as I actually believe the service was even better then normal! Food was top quality, prepared well and served as we've come to expect from here.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMdiner with MomMother Enjoyed The Atmosphere And The Food Was Great, Our Server Was Knowledgeable. We Will Be Back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSteaks are best in town! AlwaysSteaks are best in town! Always a great experience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenomenal as usualTook the wife for date night. As usual the food and service were outstanding. Brenners is my go to when she needs a great night out. We dropped $400 (included 2 dinners, 2 salads, 2 family sides, 2 desserts, and 2 bottles of champagne) and was worth every penny.
The bone in ribeye is by far THE best steak I have ever tasted. It will put anything Ruth's Chris, Morton's, or The Ritz Carlton has to shame!!!!
I took her there on our first date (she had never been) and her exact quote was, "you have ruined steak for the rest of my life. NOTHING will ever compare to brenners!"5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid steakhouseI like the old school feel of Brenners. My waitress was great. She had the right mix of service professional and personability. Steaks and German potatos were good. Nothing complicated, just a good steak joint.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Steak!Great restaurant, great steak! Good all the way around.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely wonderful...again!This was our second trip to Brenner's to celebrate a wedding anniversary. The service and food were outstanding.

And it was last Sat night.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI think they have the bestI think they have the best crab cakes not that I have tried every crab cake in Houston but I have had my share and not just in Houston and thus far they have the best that I have tasted.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experience - couldWonderful experience - could not have been more enjoyable.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed our dinnerWe really enjoyed our dinner at Brenner's. We were celebrating my dad's 85th birthday. He was a regular at one time, however, he has not been there in over 20 years....it was so great to hear him and my mom reminisce about their past experience's at Brenner's. The gardens are as beautiful as ever. The food was cooked to perfection and the presentation was awesome. We were looking for a nice quite place with excellant food/wine and found that at Brenner's.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall, excellent experience.Overall, excellent experience. All of the steaks were wonderful and cook as requested.
My ribeye was fantastic! good wine list and side dishes were nicely prepared as well.
Will look to go there again when in Houston.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food in a charmingVery good food in a charming setting. GREAT service from valet to sommelier!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a very nice time atWe had a very nice time at Brennan's. It is a quaint little restaurant with a beautiful backyard view. We were first seated at an extremely small table that seemed to be just placed in the middle of other tables in the restaurant. Thankfully, one of the managers must have clued into our body language and maybe expressions as people and waitstaff passed by and occasionally bumped into us. He came over and offered to move us to a newly opened larger table situated in a corner, which was more private and much more comfortable. Much better! Thank you! We watched as other patrons were seated at the small table and rejected it promptly. From then on, the experience was wonderful! We would go back again. Attentive staff & great!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was outstanding asThe food was outstanding as well as the service. The only negative thing I can say is that the venue is so small, and the tables are really close together. So, in turn, this makes it a bit noisy.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFor that Special Evening!We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Brenner's. It was our first time to go, but it won't be our last. We had a wonderfully-clever and attentive waitress, Ashley, who did a fine job telling us about the restaurant's history. Our experience with a Landry's-owned restaurant has always been good ... this one didn't let us down either.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMY FAVORITE HOUSTON RESTAURANTLovely Easter dinner. Food absolutely delicious and wait staff wonderful.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been here multipleI have been here multiple times and have never been disappointed.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday Dinner with a view.I was thoroughly impressed with this Steakhouse. I went for my birthday and everyone was so nice and helpful. Very attentive staff. Amazing view of the garden! LOVE IT .. will be a yearly tradition.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was my birthday, everyoneIt was my birthday, everyone acknowledged me and helped with a wonderful wine selection to go with dinner, very enjoyable. lf3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMTeh food was out of this worldTeh food was out of this world good. The service was great. We were very happy and will be going back again when we are in the area.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI was expecting to have aI was expecting to have a nice quiet dinner, but it was shockingly very loud. It took away from our dinner, and I don't think I would select Brenner's for a romantic dinner in the future. You may as well go to Chili's it is just as loud. The food was very good, but not sure why you would serve the fried shrimp by pushing them into the mashed potatoes, it made the crust soggy, and I did not enjoy the combined flavors! Fried shrimp should not be soggy. Everyone else at the table ate steak, and all were cooked perfectly. Side dishes were excellent and our waitress was excellent and very friendly, we did not have to wait for anything... Overall we truly enjoyed our experience.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite RestaurantThis is probably our favorite restaurant in Houston and we drive from Clear Lake to go there. Food and service was great. Our meats were prepared perfectly (and always have been there). This is sometimes a challenge for my wife who likes her meat close to well done which often either comes out under-done or near burnt at some restaurants, but Brenner's always gets it right. We usually eat there somewhat early (around 6:30), so this time we ate about 7:30 which was fine, but it became a bit noisier later in the evening which we weren't used to. Obviously all the diners were having a good time and enjoying their meal and good conversation.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service. TheGreat food and service. The menu selection was excellent and the wine list was notable. Expect to pay more than your regular locations but the quality of food and service will far exceed your expectations of a grand dining room experience.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my new favorite.This is my new favorite. My go to place for special occasions but also good for my corporate events.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMI've eaten at Brenners forI've eaten at Brenners for more than 45 years. It seems to me that the quality is always to be relied on as a very fine eating establishment. The steak I had (New York Strip) was prepared wonderfully. It melted in my mouth. I had very little trouble eating all 16 ounces of it. The salad and potatoes were very good, too. My wife also very much enjoyed her filet, as well as our guests, the Searfoss's. Thank you for preparing something special to commemorate Linda's birthday.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMNever FailsI have lived in Houston for 40 years and Brenner's is always a special place to dine with friends and family. We enjoy our meal and the atmosphere very time.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, except for STEAK! Whaaaaa?Everything would have been so perfect, but my steak wasn't even close to the best I've had in town. The au ju sauce they poured in the plate, for me, detracted from the steak, and I had a filet. Tough to cut? I think mine personally didn't come from the right part of the cows back. Measurements were off, because mine was a store bought steak, taste wise. Not filet mignon. I ended up eating only half of it. I was surprised manager didn't ask WHY when he took it away! Sad. It was our anniversary. Crab cake was amazing tho! Service wonderful.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAn old fashioned steak houseAn old fashioned steak house - but not an boys only steakhouse. The rear patio looked like something out of a Thomas Kinkaid painting! We weren't seated outside but it is a lovely outdoor setting suitable for dining or private functions. We had a window table which was just as nice. I could hardly believe it was so close to the interstate. The servers and managers were knowledgeable and very attentive. My favorite part - it was not noisy at all. The only loud noises were from a few nearby cowboys :) So many restaurants have poor acoustics but I did not have trouble hearing my dinner guest at all. And of course the food was wonderful - my filet mignon was cooked perfectly and the salad special was divine. Great for a special occasion!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDate night for my wife andDate night for my wife and I. We found the restaurant to be small however the ambiance was excellent for the evening. The quail appetizer was excellent. My wife moaned as she took the first bite of the red snapper she ordered so I instantly knew it was a hit. I had the ribeye steak which I also found to be flavorful. A well managed restaurant from the hostess to the wait-staff. We shall return.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWOW!This was my first time at Brenner's on the Katy Freeway but it will not be my last. The staff was friendly, attentive (but not over attentive), and very responsive. The table went with seafood dishes (yes I know it is a Steakhouse); and from fish to shrimp the dishes were excellent. Outside dining was available in a beautiful garden atmosphere. Overall this was an excellent choice for my out of town quests to have a wonderful meal.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best in HoustonWe had Valentines dinner at Brennans and it was fabulous. The service was impeccable, the food was outstanding, and the portions were not overwhelming. A perfect evening and we will be back.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a graet experience thereHad a graet experience there the other night. Sometimes you judge a restaraunt by how they react to a problem. Well, after 7 great experiences at Brenner's I had a steak come to the table overdone. That is when they earned their high marks. They did not argue, they just took it back. The manager and his manager came to see me to make sure they had the order correct. And they delivered a new steak 8-10 minutes later that was perfect. None of us are perfect all the time. On those occasions it is how we act next that counts. We love this place and will go back.12/30/2012 12:00:00 AMWhat a wonderful BirthdayWhat a wonderful Birthday dinner. A greatdinning spot.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
