Eddie, our server, was more an order taker than a server. Not what you normally find at a high end restaurant, but I can get past that. This was our first time here, and it was a special occasion. We weren't given any entree recommendations so we each ordered what sounded good. My daughter's food came out quite undercooked. When... More

Upon checking in we were told they would like to give us a better table, if we wouldn't mind waiting just a bit. We agreed and headed for the bar where he bartender made us the perfect Gimlet (with Roses Lime juice!) and offered us a menu to peruse while we waited. Table came available, but we were offered the... More

We had a marvelous dinner with great service and food that was fabulous. Can't wait to go back. Something different was the wonderful bone marrow in a split bone. UMMMMMM.

Good location. Off street near bayou. Looks like a converted house/ mansion. Nice bar out back overlooking bayou. Nice feel and look. Good food. However service is a little touch and go. Perhaps turnover and inexperience.. Would go again for location and drinks only. maybe watch football outside on deck For a great steak would pass. Sullivan's - Mortons better... More

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Brenner's Steakhouse on the Bayou. It was a WONDERFUL meal! The filet was so tender and juicy and the peppercorn sauce was delightful! We enjoyed a seared scallop appetizer and Mimosa Salads. Everything was exquisite and our server was absolutely wonderful.

This restaurant is on point. They have valet parking and a nice outdoor atmosphere with the foliage and the bayou. We started with a drink at the bar before dinner. Bartender was friendly and made a killer dirty martini! We got the table on the stairs! It was so cool to have the view of the dining room and the... More

The appetizers, side dishes, and steak were tasty, and the waiter was very attentive. However, the daily catch featured two U6 shrimp, which were foul. As soon as they were placed on the table, they smelled foul, and they tasted even fouler. I was annoyed that the manager (I presume he was the manager) had the gall to suggest that... More

We used to go here when it was the Rainbow Lodge. We usually eat at the Brenner's Steakhouse on the Katy Freeway, but thought the atmosphere would be a good change. We were disappointed in the service and quality of the food for the high price you pay. Also, the soft lighting of the bayou & grounds in the back... More
