Did not enjoy at all. Salty food. Misrepresented menu . Ugh! Don't be fooled by the Brennans name. Overpriced and nothing special AT ALL! Don't even ask about the service.

Brunch at Brennan's was excellent. Service was top notch. Atmosphere was very nice and relaxing. We arrived at 10 for brunch, when they opened. The food was also very good. I chose the signature dishes of Turtle Soup, Eggs Brennan and Bananas Foster.

We've enjoyed 3 Thanksgiving dinners in a row here. It's a fantastic restaurant with excellent service. But out-of-towners should consider squeezing in a Happy Hour @ Brennan's of Houston: they offer small plates of amazing appetizers and inexpensive drinks. The Bartender & crew do not rush guests. It's a super pleasant experience. We just enjoyed Happy Hour here during Super... More

We were travelling for work & pleasure to Houston and came across this place our last evening. Everything from the reservation process to the check went great. From sightseeing all day we were not quite dressed for the formal requirements but the manager and staff were so kind and allowed us to stay and experience the best of Houston in... More

My wife, sister and our family friend went out on a Monday night and had a great time. The restaurant was not busy and the service was very good even if a tad slow off the mark. The waiter was professional as was his helper, both were attentive with a deft touch; not intrusive or pushy. Our waiter was very... More

Brennan's is our favorite restaurant in Houston but our last visit was less than spectacular. The service was fantastic but not sure if Sunday night is a good night to go there. The Redfish was underwhelming (did not smell fresh) and the Pork Chop was a bit though. We will definitely go again but hope it gets back to the... More

The ambiance, attitudes and cuisine will transport you from downtown Houston to New Orleans. From The moment you walk in the door and see the platter of pralines to the warm greeting, sound of Dixieland and fabulous menu you will be treated to southern charm and an exceptional dining experience.

We had dinner here for a birthday celebration. The area we were seated in was a separated room with two rows of long tables for parties of 14-15. There was another party of 10 seated at one set of tables and we were at the other set. It was not too difficult to hear people talking if they were next... More

What a great dining experience we had at Brennon's! The wait staff was incredibly attentive, the atmosphere is elegant but comfortable. The portions are large. I had a strip steak and my companion had a pork chop that Fred Flintstone would have felt right at home with. Huge, flavorful, and great enough to make us both smile with the very... 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.
