Amazing experience from the very beginning at check -in. Easily my favorite restaurant in Houston, but to be honest, our server was outstanding. Kelsey is energetic, helpful, and had the best recommendations/suggestions.

Visited for a birthday celebration and all aspects of this experience was amazing. The service, view ambiance, and food. The sides were a bit on the pricey side.

In my opinion, they should have had more separation between the tables -- less than 6 feet.

This was our first time at Brenner's Steakhouse on the Bayou. My Boyfriend and I were celebrating our 6 month anniversary and have visited pretty much every steakhouse in Houston and decided to try Brenner's for our anniversary. The ambience was superb, wait staff was great, but we were somewhat disappointed in the steak. I ordered a medium steak extra blackened and the steak was all the way pink and even with a rubbery texture. We did not have time to deal with this that night as my boyfriend was working the graveyard shift and would need to get some rest after dinner. A couple of days later, I went to heat up the steak hoping that it would cook a little more and not be so rubbery, but that was not the case. I don't know if I just got a bad cut of meat, but this steak does not compare to a Vic & Anthony's nor a Papa's Steakhouse. The ambiance on the patio for drinks and appetizers was the greatest treat, but the main course which was the steak was sub par.

Our server was very kind and professional. The water servers were constantly refilling our drinks which was great. I just wish the large group of loud women weren’t seated behind me. Very annoying but they deserve to have fun.

We had an enjoyable dinner. The food was good but nothing to write home about. We had excellent service and enjoyed the ambiance. The valet is not free and was greatly understaffed. Overall it was a good experience but we'd choose many other steakhouses in Houston before coming back.
