Enjoyed an afternoon of 8 at Brenner’s on the Bayou. The food was excellent all the way around. From French Toast to Duck, no one complained. I, at times, felt the servers were maybe pulled in other directions. They were still very attentive but sometimes towards the end of our dinner, non existent.
It was a great day all around!!

We had a great experience at Brenner’s. I had been before for dinner but never brunch. We had the chicken fried chicken biscuits which was delicious. The caramel apple mule and banana wafer tart was to die for! My friend had a mimosa which was too “pulpy” and our waitress Morgan graciously had it fixed. Will come back again soon.

This is my favorite secret spot in Houston! I love eating the crab legs and truffle fries while enjoying a martini out on the back deck. Fabulous food, HH, service and ambiance.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Brenner’s on the Bayou. It was a great atmosphere, we chose to dine outside and it was a very relaxing environment. I needed gluten free options and the waiter was able to recommend options to me, I did well after. The food was good and staff was very professional. We’ll definitely go again.

The cocktails, food, and service were immaculate.
Ambiance is the issue here. It is DARK inside the restaurant and a lot of people use phones as flashlights. Do not dine here if you have any sensitivity to flashing lights.

The noise level was perfect the atmosphere was fine we did sit downstairs in the dining area overlooking the waterfall so that was perfect however the food was fine the only thing I didn’t like about the food was it had some food items that I wasn’t familiar with so it through the taste and a blend of the food off and it did not have any seasoning or taste

Great atmosphere. Wonderful for a date night. Cameron was our server and he was great! Very professional and friendly. We are very spoiled and have high standards for food. Steak was cooked perfectly. Asparagus was overdone. Tomato salad did not have enough blue cheese or dressing on it. Overall, love this place.

Like most Landry's establishment, food is consistently good. We split the check 3 ways but were told only One Landry's reward card could be used. Very dissappointed in that.

we were celebrating our 10 year anniversary. We had the worse table against a wall with no view. I expected so much more especially, because I made sure to tell y’all it was our 10 year anniversary. The restaurant was not busy at all.

:( our waitress was excellent and sweet.

We ate out on the patio because of covid concerns, so the ambiance was a bit noisy and more casual than a dine in experience. Still, we really enjoyed our meal.

I ordered the Red Snapper for $42. I only received half of a fillet and it was under cooked and barely seasoned. The lighting inside was very poor. Too dark. Had to use cell phone light to see menu. The parking lot is too small and it's valet only. I didn't valet my car because of covid and I don't trust the people who park your car. Brenner's stress that they have a dress code, but they do not enforce it. We saw people wearing shorts, tee shirts. Several had blue jeans and tees shirts, etc. My wife and I were dressed above business casual.

My wife and I came here to celebrate our anniversary and my birthday. Food was great. My bone in ribeye we perfect.
Our server was really good. Unfortunately, I thought his name was Dawson but his actual name was Austin. Sorry Austin was getting your name wrong. I guess the combination of the music noise and your mask, I didn't hear your name probably. However you were great. Thanks for an awesome evening. We will be back.

Beautiful location — a bit noisy inside which made it tough to hear a each other. Starters and entrees were delicious. The chocolate soufflé could have used a bit more chocolate

Perfect restaurant to celebrate my mothers 85th birthday. Our round table was next to the window with a gorgeous view. The service was excellent and I love the lodge vibe of the restaurant. All of the food was excellent from salads to schnitzel to the soufflés. Some of our party ordered from the brunch menu and loved their food as well. This was the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion.

The combination with the salmon was not good. It needed some type of risotto or potato.

Mask wearing by the staff is clearly optional. The managers appeared inexperienced and did little to support the staff. The bartender is in the wrong business.

The great news is our table service was first rate and food was tasty. The portions of the entrees are a little undersized for the price however the bake potato and wedge salad were oversized.

It was a beautiful sunny warm day and the grounds and restaurant have a great ambiance.

Food was great only problem is that we were seated in the middle of traffic next to the stairs. I had to keep adjusting my chair to let people walk by. It was uncomfortable.
