Took my team to lunch yesterday. Table perfectly set for 8 and we were very warmly welcomed. Dining room was extremely cold so they reset the thermostat and lit the fireplace. Everyone at the table ordered different dishes and all were very pleased. The wait service was exemplary. No request was too much for them. We all left pleased and... More

I always feel like I have stepped back in time just a bit when I visit Brennan's of Houston. Even though the entire building has recently been rebuilt after a fire the charm of the place is palpable. The food is great and the service impeccable. I prefer this place for a brunch on the weekends but anytime is a... More

On my birthday I wanted to go to a special place. We choose Brennan's . This restaurant according to Zagat has beautiful interior decoration . I think it's OK, but not so impressive. Unfortunately we were not that lucky to get the best service. Our server seemed to be pretty tired and unhappy. Plus it is so dark over there,... More

Wanted to go somewhere special and memorable for New Year's Day, so decided to visit Brennan's after a many year hiatus. What a wonderful and perfect way to start 2017. Greg was our server and was attentive but not obtrusive. The three course brunch was a great value and among the three of us we had the smoked and shrimp... More

Our family tradition is to celebrate the special occasions at Brennan's. We've come here for both my parents 30th and 40th wedding anniversary, as well as following my engagement announcement. Always a wonderful meal with fantastic staff. This tradition will hold for many more years to come!

Visited Brennan's recently for a wedding celebration and the staff were helpful, the food was good and the venue was nice. Would certainly recommend for enjoying a nice meal. The beef was nicely cooked and the desserts were excellent.

A place looking old American Southern style with a burning chimney. The idea was to go and eat Cajun food. As a French I do understand something different under the 'Cajun' word and none of tasted dishes had this touch or expected spice. Oysters were overlooked and swimming in oil. The specialty of fish with crab mussels and shrimps had... More

I came here on a date night. The place is beautiful and elegant - the perfect spot for a romantic dinner or special occasion. I ordered a cajun fish dish that was perfection. Bananas Foster table side for dessert is a must - it's amazingly delicious! Excellent wine list. It's a bit cold in the dinning rooms, so bring a... More

Since our 1967 opening as a sister restaurant to the world-famous Commander's Palace in New Orleans, Brennan's of Houston has evolved into the city's premier destination for memorable dining served with true Southern hospitality. From the reservationist to the waiters, chefs and every associate behind the scenes, our team is focused on the highest standard of excellence and equally dedicated to creating enduring memories of snapshots in time: the sealing of business deals, wedding proposals, joyful celebrations, and the marking of significant milestones along life's way. And the proof is in the (bread) pudding, with loyal patrons returning time and again to create new memories.Reflecting the same warmth as our friendly greeting, each farewell concludes with Brennan's signature lagniappe: an abundance of unforgettably fresh pecan pralines.
