We dined there for Thanksgiving (third year in a row) and were able to take advantage of the surprisingly beautiful weather and were seated outside in their patio. The service, as always, was top-notch. Matthew, our waiter, was attentive and friendly. The turkey was tender and delicious, and the stuffing was probably the best we've ever had. This special dinner also includes fresh green beans and sweet potato pâté. (We hope they add cranberries in the future!) Topped off with caramel cheesecake and pecan pie.

Special note regarding COVID operations: they have expanded their outdoor seating and have spaced tables well over 10' apart. We felt totally comfortable and enjoyed the change (we usually eat inside one of their two rooms). If the weather permits, it's a great option. The freeway traffic is a little intrusive, but we could converse at normal levels.

We were there for Thanksgiving and had the thanksgiving feature. I had hoped for a more expanded option for Thanksgiving. There was plenty of turkey which was very moist. The green beans were nothing special, steamed or blanched. There was a smear of sweet potato purée that the turkey was placed upon. It was rounded out with a small dollop of andouille sausage dressing. It was a bit of a disappointment.
Our service was adequate.

Amazing! Came here two years ago and had the same exact experience as then. By far the BEST steakhouse restaurant experience food wise we have ever had.

Bar area was packed, with no face masks and table spacing with no regard to COVID - worst place i have been for regard to pandemic, and I'm not normally one to be be overly concerned.
Receptionist was rude

My husband and I always enjoy our dinner at Brenner’s. From Rebecca, the friendliest and most knowledgeable server to our cocktails, dinner, wine and dessert, they are the best. Rebecca always greats us with a smile and she knows our cocktail and dinner preferences. My appetizer of grilled scallops was delicious as well as my husband’s lamp lollipops which he always orders. I was going to have the red snapper special but they had run out of the snapper. Rebecca suggested the salmon prepared the same was as the red snapper with lump crabmeat and capers. It was outstanding. My husband had the 8 oz filet served with a side of mushrooms he enjoyed. Since we were celebrating our anniversary we were served not one, but two crieme brûlée because the first one didn’t have “Happy Anniversary” on it! We had to take one home! We love dining at Brenner’s on Sundays because they have a list of wines at 50% off. We take advantage of this offer by ordering a bottle of La Magia Brunello de Montalcino. Outstanding!

The hostess was very scantily dressed. Very short, very tight, very plunging neckline.
Lobster bisque was lukewarm with few pieces of lobster.
Snapper with crab was great!
Outdoor atmosphere very relaxing.

Very Impressed at our 28 Anniversary dinner.Service was superb! Steak knives were not serrated,which impressed me. Malbec wine was very good for the price. Sides were as good or better than other Houston steak houses. Filets were cooked to perfection and needed no condiments. Thanks for a great dinner

We had a reservation for 8.15, we got there early and had to wait close to 20 min to sit down. Then the waitress took too long to take the orders...we tried to order 3 different bottles of wine and they did not have any available, they finally gave us a $100 bottle for the price of an $85 that we wanted.
My daughter order a fish with the crab topping on the side which they never brought. Very disappointed as it was my wife's bday and was trying to do something nice for her and the kids.
I have been here a few times before and it was not like that...chances are we will never be back....Patio is nive thought.

It was perfect! They didn't seem to read my request on the reservation for a quiet place away from people by the window, as they had us seated in the middle of a crowded room, but they did move us to a small window table. I only wish there were fewer people in the dining room overall due to covid, since it is a large restaurant. None the less, the food, service and all else is always reliably spectacular!

Service was very good. Food was okay but overpriced. Menu descriptions did not match the descriptions on the bill. Menu said the bone in ribeye was 22oz but the bill said 20oz. Bill said that steak was dry aged but the menu did not say that. I do not like dry aged and would have never ordered that steak (for $79) if I knew it was dry aged.

We had to ask the waiter to keep his mask up and then while dining outdoors guests next to us smoked cigars and played music so we had to move to another table for dessert. The food and service was excellent.
