Steakhouse
A Houston legend for more than seven decades--Brenner's Steakhouse offers a dining experience like no other. From Prime steaks, fresh seafood & decadent desserts to an eclectic wine list and stunning backdrops, Brenner's continues its tradition of generous hospitality to guests. The original Brenner's Café was the dream of Herman and Lorene Brenner and many of the recipes were re-created for Brenner's Steakhouse, including the crunchy German Potatoes and incomparable Apple Strudel. The Brenner's location on Katy Freeway features outside dining in an exquisite garden area, surrounded by waterfalls and a gazebo.

Nice atmosphere love the outside sitting area, staff was awesome. Make sure to try the crab cakes, I thought Vic & Anthony had the best but Brenner's was the best so far. The drinks were on point and the potatoe soup is to die for

Food was great. Service fantastic. Acoustics lead to relatively high noise level in main dining room.

The braised short rib was amazing. The filet was kind of bland. The mashed potatoes were delicious.

Celebrated our one year wedding anniversary at Brenner's Steakhouse over the weekend. The entire experience was beyond amazing! Our night was magical thanks to our experience at Brenner's. Food, wine, desert, service - everything was outstanding. It was a bit too cold to sit outside but we look forward to happy hour in gorgeous the patio area.

Way too loud in there. Was very hard to hear people at a 4 person table. Had to yell to be heard and way too loud to enjoy the company.

We had heard of Brenner's for many years, but never had a chance to visit. After finding ourselves in Houston again, we tried it and thoroughly enjoyed it!

Very loud! Waitress obviously new in not knowing the wine list and being unfamiliar with menu details. She was eager and pleasant so will improve.

Overall pretty nice experience. A little disappointed in some of our food. We had the chef’s special fried green tomatoes, and the tomatoes were not ripe enough, hard and difficult to cut. My husband thought the lobster bisque had a stronger tomato gravy than he prefers. Our steaks were ok, but we’ve had better on other visits. Service was excellent!

The noise level is not properly assessed in the survey (energetic is not the right term - obnoxious is more appropriate). It was extremely loud to the point that two of us at a 2 person table could not talk to each other. Definitely hindered the experience. Wait staff was very good and the food was excellent.

In comparison to other four star restaurants Brenner's needs a major overhaul. The ambiance isn’t the same and the food quality has changed considerably.

We picked Brenner's to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary tonight and we were really disappointed. We almost always pick Brenner's for special occasions and they have done a good job in the past but tonight they really missed the mark.
I made the reservation earlier in the week and I informed Brenner's that it was our anniversary. I requested and quiet/romantic table for us but when we arrived we were seated in the middle of the restaurant at what was probably the loudest spot in the place. It was also right next to the kitchen so we had wait staff walking past our table the entire meal. The food was good but overall the experience was bad and our evening was ruined because of it. We will not be celebrating our 20th anniversary there next year.

Salads & Steaks were good. Only surprise of the evening- is they delivered our steaks to the table while we were eating out salads. ( maybe just 1/3 left.. but more than a few bites).
