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.

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).

Food quality and service was very good. However, it was very noisy which made it difficult to carry on a table conversation or understand the server. I recommend it if you only wish to eat.... If you want to engage in any socialization, I would not recommend it.

Two years ago, we fell in love with Brenner’s “chicken fried filet mignon” - a filet mignon that was pounded out thin, battered and fried, and served with bacon cream gravy. It was delicious! They have changed the recipe. Now, the meat is not pounded out so that it is thin, and they top it with a gravy that is loaded with corn. In my opinion, the original was far better than this new concoction. We don’t normally eat chicken fried steak very often, but once a year, we would treat ourselves to this special treat. Sorry to see that they have changed the recipe so that it no longer tastes like traditional Texas-recipe “CFS”.

Excellent lunch for two. The only downside of Brenner's is the noise factor. Seated next to a group of loud business types shouting at high volume makes it impossible to have a conversation.

The waitress was excellent. She made sure to explain the menu to my husband and me. She also told the differences in the steaks. She made sure our glasses were never empty. She made my husband birthday a great and memorable day. I do not remember her name, but she was African American. Her customer services were GREAT!!!!!! We will visit again.

Thank you for a great experience.

We were seated in the private dining room and the AC was unreasonably cold. The bar was out of Zaya rum. Again. The old fashioned didn’t have a brûléed orange because the bar was out. It seemed like it was one thing after another throughout the evening. That being said JIMMY was outstanding! He was personable, attentive and went out of his way to make our evening enjoyable. We will definitely request Jimmy for our next visit.

Dined at Brenner's for my wife's 70th birthday. Notified the restaurant in advance about the special occasion to no avail. The food, as usual, was excellent and the recommended wine was delicious and well priced. However, the dining room seemed more crowded than ever and the noise level made normal conversation difficult. Table service was also slow at times.

There are a number of restaurants in Houston were a great steak can be had and a normal conversation can be held in some of them without physically bumping into the patrons at the adjacent table. Sadly, Brenner's isn't one of these and for these reasons I would not recommend it.

The food is always fantastic. The service is always attentive as well. This time the service went way above expectations. Even the valet helped our disabled mother-in-law to the car. If you want a wonderful meal and great experience, look no further than Brenner's. They never disappoint!

Steak was over cooked. The brussel sprouts were just okay. Nothing I would go back to Brenners to eat.

Wonderful service by Luis! We're a bunch of bossy women and he handled it beautifully! Delicious food. Only thing, it's quite loud in there so it's hard to visit.

The food was good but bland. I really do think they need to put an herb butter on steaks without additional charging

Celebrated a birthday with eight people. Waiter was outstanding, wine was 1/2 price which was an unexpected perk and service was at a leisurely pace. One steak was not cooked properly but the waiter and staff handled the situation very graciously. Ambience is definitely a plus.

My husband and I LOVE this place! We’ve been twice, and each time we sit outside and it’s absolutely amazing. The staff is fantastic and so accommodating to you, the manager makes it a point to stop by. Our server made a recommendation for the Beef Sirloin and that was hands down the best dish I’ve ever had! Neither time was there even a chance for disappointment. We will be back!

Everything was great until we left. On our way home the hostess informed me that they don’t allow men to wear shorts in the main dining room. This was after she seated us that they served us and collected our money

We had a great evening at Brenner's! The food is always delicious (don't miss the crab cakes) and Michelle was such a great server! Her service was warm and professional. Brenner's is always one of our "go to" choices for special occasions, however, this time was just friends getting together. The Steaks are always top notch however the German Potatoes are dream worthy!

In this day and age when things change so quickly, I appreciate that this establishment has been left alone and still is the inviting getaway the Brenners created so many years ago!
