    Great steaks in a fun atmosphere!! The quality of the food is always exceptional! The variety during Sunday brunch is slightly limited when it comes to sides/extras compared to dinner but still a wonderful experience!

    They had private parties in the yard and at Blue. So couldn’t get in for Happy Hour. It should have been published in their website. When I mentioned that to the hostess, she said: “I don’t work on the website” (not the answer I expected). 👎🏻

    We made our reservation online and we were reminded the day before which is a nice thing. Upon arrival we were seated inside in a small balcony looking at the restaurant. It is a busy traffic way however the staff was gracious when walking past. Because we were very central our service was fantastic. We did not go without attention. We even asked for a 15 minute break between service so we could talk over wine and enjoy dinner. The food quality was as good as you would expect from a high end restaurant. It was a great date night for us.

    This was my first time at Brenners, decided to take my girlfriend for a early Valentine’s dinner and she loved it. The filet mignon and NY strip were to die for. For appetizers we had oysters and their famous bacon. Definitely would be returning back to Brenners for a second date in the future. The food and service is too good not to be returning.

    We came here to celebrate a birthday with the family. Only reason I’m giving 4/5 stars is because my dad who was in a wheelchair and oxygen was not placed in an easily accessible seating area. I had specifically requested this when I reserved In fact I was surprised that the hostess was unaware of the back entrance for handicapped customers. We were placed in a very small table by a door to the patio that blew things off our table every time somebody opened the door. Both my dads and my daughters steak had to be sent back for being way overcooked. Sorry but this was not an SNL Lisa from Temecula skit. I’ve been here with friends many times so I was quite surprised at this lack of quality customer service from a normally excellent quality favorite.

    I used to love this place. The food was totally uninspired and bland, not to mention over cooked. The atmosphere was outstanding and this restaurant is now relying solely on that. The service was overbearing, maybe in an attempt to overcome the poor quality meal. No longer with the money and with so many outstanding choices in Houston this one is off the list.
