We were seated at a table near to walkway/ door even though there was a nice table in the corner available.
Didn’t make for great impression. Noise level was very loud until earlier tables cleared. Then we could stop yelling at each other.
Service was very good. Food was excellent!!

As usual, great atmosphere, service and food! The seared goat cheese was ok, lobster bites were amazing for appetizers. Salad, filet with truffle butter was insane. So full, didn’t have dessert. One of our top 3 in Houston, always!

First of all, the red snapper and crab cake were delicious but the lobster bisque was a bit salty. It was cold and drizzling rain and we had to walk from the bar through an outdoor area to get to our dining table. It was awhile before a server came to our table. I was a little disappointed. Based on the price point, I expected more.

First time at this location. Food was excellent. Atmosphere was very nice. Price was a little excessive for the choices. Service was unnecessarily challenging at times. But, overall, very nice and we plan to return.

Everything was great as usual. The only thing was I had foot surgery and we were put in the very back area where we had to walk outside to get there. I did not say anything.

Our waitress Charity was very attentive and helpful. We went all out and ordered Drinks, crab cakes, salads, steak with scallops and the short rib, and bread pudding for dessert. All of it was delicious! Couldn’t have asked for a better parents night out

One of the best steaks I have ever had. They do allow cigar smoking on the patio and it was quite strong. They however did offer to move us inside or to another table on the patio. The food was incredible and the ambiance beautiful and cozy. Our waiter was not the best, but the food and atmosphere made up for it. I would definitely return.

What a lovely way for my husband and I to spend our Christmas lunch. It is just the two of us now and the entire staff treated us so warmly that we left feeling very much in the Christmas spirit. From the lobster appetizer to my husband's perfectly prepared filet mignon and my Red Snapper with sweet crabmeat topping the meal was delicious and exquisite. Since we live seventy-two miles away this is a venture for us to make for special occasions. General Manager Pettet was so very cordial and our server Chris was knowledgeable and accommodating.
If you have a special occasion or just want to spoil yourself Brenner's Steakhouse on Katy Freeway should be your dining destination. We look forward to our return for another exquisite meal.

This was our first time visiting Brenner’s. We really enjoyed our evening celebrating my husband’s new job. The restaurant has a very nice feel with a fireplace and a beautiful view of the water wheel and gardens. The service and food was exceptional. We had the filet mignon that melted in our mouths, along with asparagus and German potatoes. And don’t forget the apple strudel. Brenner’s is an excellent combination of steak house and German restaurant. We definitely recommend it for a nice romantic night out or celebration with a group of friends. Don’t forget to enjoy the gardens. They are beautiful in the evening with the sun coming down and the lights sparkling across the water.

We were very impressed with Brenner’s and we will definitely go back.

Unfortunately, we picked a very busy night: a Friday before Christmas. It was so busy and so noisy that people at our table could not hear each other talking. We had hoped to have a nice cozy meal with family but those of us within hailing distance were forced to yell at each other just to be heard. My poor mother-in-law was excluded for most of the juicy conversations as it was so loud.

The food was great. The waiter was very attentive and provided really good recommendations; we followed them all and were very appreciative.

We love Brenner’s! The service and holiday merriment were great. Our food was not as good as usual. Everyone deserves an off night. We will be back!
