Ordered the shrimp and grits, a bloody Mary, and bananas Foster. The shrimp and grits were the recommendation of the bartender, and boy was he right!

We brought our daughter and granddaughter for a birthday celebration and reserved early to avoid the dinner rush. However, after our first course, we could hardly get our servers attention and most of the folks who came after us left before our dinner was finished....More

I've been here twice and it's always a consideration. Not my absolute favorite steakhouse, but they have other options and I'll be back.

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.
