I was about ten minuets late for the reservation but was seated right away. The waiter Alex gave us excellent service. This is by far the best steak that I have ever had, I normally ask for steak sauce to add a little kick but I didn't need it. The smoked macaroni and cheese was great. I cant eat seafood anymore but the fried shrimp were very large and the mashed potatoes were great.t. I also had a Mi Tai (never had one made like it before) my compliments to the bartender. I'm going to try brunch soon and I hope to get the same service.

Pros: Best Steak

Cons: The apple whatever it was needs more crust

Had a great experience last night! The crab cakes, the salad with homemade dressing, a perfectly cooked steak that was delicious, german potatos, awesome mac and cheese, and the apple strusal for desert.
Also had one of the best waiters I have had in a long time (forgot His name). I was pleasantly suprised, we had picked this place for the grounds and view, and not expecting 5 star food and service. I would highly recommend Brenners!

Called for a reservation for 8 people for 7:30pm. Call placed at 9:30 am and was told "I'm not sure how to read this thing but looks like only four tabes booked- will call right back"

Noon no call. I called and was given an 8:15pm option. I had to move sitters (we all have kids under 5) but will take it and call back with confirmation that we can change our schedules. Did it and called Brenner's to be told it was a mistake. "ALL BOOKED"

The manager got on the line and said he would try to move some things around and call back.

Hostess called within minutes and said can't do it.

The Manager should have made that call. Now changing plans for a third time.

First time to write one of these but the Landry's group at least at Brenner's on the Bayou does not have their act together.

Called Fleming's. Manager answered and was most professional. Changing plans again, but confident that co-diners and baby sitters have it right this time.

LOL - after all that and while previewing this post - Brenner's manager called and told me "We can make it happen" What could I say - "Are you sure?"

Pros: Unknown

Cons: Poor Service

.

Food presentation, preparation, and quality are average.

Service ranged from mediocre to inept, and was very slow even though the restaurant was not crowded.

Ethics alert! They attempted to serve wine (over $100/bottle) of different vintage than on the menu.

This is a "Landry's" resturant, and incase that doesn't already tell you enough, then here it goes: food was average and WAY over priced! The service for that upscale place was way below the bar, and to say it again it is a "Landry's" resturant!!! DO NOT GO! I went b/c my inlaws suggested it, and i made other suggestions, but what my mother in law wants my mother in law gets. Oh, and we inquired about family pictures on thier grounds early on a Saturday morning, and they want to charge us $175.00 to use thier grounds for 1 hr even before they are open for business!!! What a crock!

Pros: Pretty grounds

Cons: Food, service, and price

.

Love the location and the building is beautiful. The service was wonderful and the food was great. The prices are a little high, but are comparable to any other high end steak house in town. I understand they have a buffett on Sundays - I will be by to try it soon!

Pros: Ambience, service

Cons: grounds are beautiful during the day, but like to go to dinner later in the evening

.

Romantic restaurant. Good food (serving size is very generous). Waiting area is too small. I agree that it is a bit expensive but the food and sides were good. Service was ok. On both occasions, the waiter was a bit slow but it is nice to take your time eating on weekends.

Pros: Bone in ribeye is good

.

We tried this restaurant for an anniversary dinner. Boy, I was completely disappointed. The prices were very high for what we got. The steak was okay, but only okay and the sides were boring and ordinary. The wine list was long and they had a good selection. Of course, the location is awesome, but that's about the only thing that was awesome. The service, too, was not very good. I didn't know that this restaurant was a Landry's before we went there, otherwise, I would have never gone. Truly, for a good steak, Flemings or Striphouse is the way to go.

Pros: Beaufiul views and good wine list

Cons: The food

.

What do you expect??? It's a Landry's!!! First the landlord took the location from Rainbow Lodge, then they BOMBED out badly. Next the the King of Chains took the location and used the Brenner's name he bought to label this great location.

Oh well...

Most beautiful atmosphere, food is delicious, but the service is sub par. Our server was simply an order taker, didn't welcome us to the retaurant, spoke maybe 10 words thorughtout the meal, he disappeared for long periods. Dining out is not just about the food quality, it's the whole experience and service plays a key role in this.

The best located restaurant I've been to in Texas with the idyllic grounds and coutryside atmosphere that makes you feel like your miles away from the city. The trouble was we had service which was below par for a place that cost us $35 per person for brunch. "Toasted" english muffins took an additional 10 mins and came out un-toasted when they forgot to serve them and they don't understand the meaning of "no mayo". A real pity as it could have been a great experience. Go for the atmosphere - not the service or value.
