What a fantastic evening at Brenner's -- I was a first timer and was impressed! It was a little confusing at first because I received a text from OpenTable to confirm that we were on our way, but I guess I inadvertently pressed the wrong number and cancelled the reservation -- which we found out when we arrived at the restaurant. The hostess graciously accommodated us within minutes. On to the food... first up was the roasted bacon appetizer - OMG FANTASTIC! A huge hit! Next was the wedge salad. Didn't care so much for the blue cheese dressing as it was different than I expected (and I LOVE blue cheese!). My friend and I ordered the filet special which came with shrimp and a scampi sauce followed by au gratin potatoes with bacon and exotic mushrooms. Absolutely delicious! My steak was perfectly cooked, the right temperature, tender, and tasted delicious! The potatoes were incredible as were the mushrooms. For dessert we had and apple crumble with ice cream and creme brûlée -- oh that creme brûlée was so tasty!!! We loved our experience and would definitely return! Thank you!

Pretty disappointed. We’re pretty happy and easy customers and have not walked away feeing that frustrated from a restaurant before. We’ve dined here before so wasn’t expecting that. The guests next to us were being very difficult and it was clearly messing with the staff. We hardly saw our waiter, he was very distracted and gave us pretty poor service. All the waiters were drenched in sweat from the business of the night and from the stress of the unpleasant customers next to us. Just disappointed since the meal is pricey, we were hoping for a really special time and that was just not what we received sadly.

The AC blew on our necks so hard we could not keep a napkin on the table. The Assist Mgr did nothing about it when asked. The worst was we had a waiter that had is mind on something else. He never wrote our orders down and got the order wrong twice, took forever to serve us (3 hours) and never did bring my coffee in the end. We would get up and go looking for him often. One person said he was in the kitchen????? Food was outstanding. I have come to this restaurant for over 40 years but this was the worst experience we have ever had.

Interesting to say the least. Better not mind bugs. One landed on our daughters menu when we sat down to start the experience. Flies were always around and a spider even landed on our sons shoulder at one point.
My Snake River filet was great. The salmon was good. Shrimp was ok and the redfish as good as pappadeauxs.
They comp’d our salmon for some of the issues and for that I was very thankful. We told them it was not necessary but told us not to worry about it and even offered us a desert.
Overall the staff is great. Just that being in the wooded area for the atmosphere may cost them with a lot of bug control needed.

I took my husband to this restaurant to celebrate Father's Day. It was a great place to spend a really good time with the family. They had good options for the kids. For the appetizer we ordered Wagyu Miso Tenderloin Skewers. They were tasty and really soft. My husband ordered a steak and the creamed spinach and I ordered the Beef steak tomato salad. The steak was big enough to share and the creamed spinach was amazing. My kids ordered the chicken and waffles from the brunch menu and they loved it. My salad was perfect in flavor, presentation and size. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends and family. The cheesecake was the perfect way to finish a flavorful late lunch with the family.

Overall a very good meal. Our filets and sides ( mushrooms, creamed spinach, and Brussels sprouts ) were for the most part well prepared. Both steaks were ordered to be cooked medium pink throughout , one was perfect , the other just a tad under cooked ,but not enough to send back. The bacon in the Brussels sprouts was a tad undercooked. All very small things. For an upscale restaurant the bread served upon being seated and the first impression of the meal to come was very underwhelming, somewhat dry and tasteless. That being said the cheesecake was excellent as was the service.

I have NEVER seen a place so loud in my life! Usually Brenner’s is a fairly quiet and peaceful restaurant, where you don’t have to talk loud to be heard. So many people were talking and laughing so loud - l guess it was the liquor. Also, our waitress didn’t check back often enough with us, although this may not be their fault bc l think they were understaffed with that big crowd.

It was my husband’s birthday. It was an awesome dinner experience. Matthew took excellent care of us. He answered our questions and told us the history of the location of the restaurant. He made sure our courses were timed just right. We will be back and tell our friends about the great service and food we had.

Celebrating a birthday and everything was amazing. It had been awhile since I was there last but remembered how good their steaks were. They did not disappoint! They make a perfect old fashion which goes perfectly with a great steak. Mac & cheese was super yummy as was the Au gratin potatoes. The filet was cooked exactly medium and needed nothing to be great but I highly recommended the peppercorn sauce. It’s so creamy and tasty I alternated between some bites with and some without, lol. German chocolate cake was dense and delicious. Oh, how could I forget the crab cakes? The menu says tomato basil which I’m not a big fan but don’t pass these up! They are so good.

Food and the service was amazing. I was genuinely surprised especially with how full the restaurant was. The lamb lollipops were better than the New York strip imo, probably what I’m going to get next time I go.

Only issue is I made a reservation and it wasn’t available when we got there. It was fine, I understand things happen. But then they told us to sit at the bar, but we got kicked out of the bar to another seat not long after because someone reserved the bar seats we were put at. And it seemed like the person knew the manager. The noise was very loud too where we had trouble talking to each other from across the table, but that’s understandable since it’s a Saturday night. All in all not terrible and I’ll be back.
