The staff was great and the drinks were very good like always. I wasn’t as pleased with our meals as I wish I could have been. By friend eggs st. Charles were way over cooked. My meal was Luke warm when it arrived. But the staff was so nice that we didn’t even complain. I will return I’m hoping it was just a bad day in the kitchen.

We were celebrating my wife’s birthday. Service was just a tad slow (not an unusual circumstance with Covid affecting staffing right now) but the staff was very cordial and seemed to be going full tilt to handle what, in our area, was nearly a full house. Well done, Brennan’s

I had forgotten about Brennan’s with so many eating choices in Houston. This was my lose. Great food and a great experience. I’ll best sure to keep them on my list with so many so called “upscale” places relaxing their dress codes. Great to see a restaurant hold the test of time.

The upholstery was all torn and worn on all the chairs. They re-used paper menus. Such a disappointment given their history and former high standards.

Me and my husband came across Brennan’s for lunch the day prior and it was so amazing we had to come back for brunch the next day. They were able to squeeze us in at 1:45pm on a Saturday ! As you can see from the pictures brunch was amazing the food was superb and the service was even better. Brennans closed at 2 PM. And we didn’t leave until about 4 PM, the service was still amazing the food was even better and I’m happy we were able to enjoy a great lunch/brunch with my husband at an amazing place that reminded us of “Our” favorite place which is New Orleans, and Brennan’s New Orleans. We will be back !

Small crowd and very little attention from servers. We had the special crab cakes, they were awesome but thought they were over priced. It was a shock when the bill came.
Still enjoyed the meal, thank you.

It was perfect. I'm originally from New Orleans and miss home. This experience is exactly like that of the original Brennan's and I couldn't be happier to know a taste of New Orleans is 30 minutes away.

Great food, great service and fantastic value. Tableside preparation (shrimp and grits) was beautiful. Stuffed quail was delicious. One service hiccup was promptly addressed. Can't ask for much more.

Great food and service, as always. We were able to get a reservation same day. The bananas foster is a must when we dine here.
The one issue was the front left dining room we were seated in was VERY loud and not the usual ambiance we are accustomed to when dining at Brennan’s.

The perfect day to have brunch on the patio Sunday afternoon. Jazz quartet was great as always. Food was delish!! Gumbo, tomato soup with shrimp & crawslfish, eggs Benedict & eggs Sardou was really awesome. Chocolate Pecan Pie excellent!! Ebelinda & Ashley were delightful servers always keeping our glasses full & they made the service seamless. Just a great experience as always!!
