Brenner's on the Bayou, this steakhouse, is indeed quite good, but I ordered half-ripe, personally think the meat is a little bit old, or half-ripe is just right.
Although a little expensive, we had ribeye, NY steak, and roasted chicken with 2 sides. The service was excellent (Taylor) on the top floor. Tip: try to get a good table facing the bayou.
My wife, daughter, son, and I dined at Brenner's on the Bayou on Sunday evening, June 5th. Our reservation was for 6pm and we arrived a few moments early; however, was seated upon entering the restaurant. Our waiter, Richard, was FANTASTIC!!! We asked for some recommendations on wine and Richard suggested a Rombauer Vineyards, Carneros Merlot which was delightful! This was my first time having a Rombauer Vineyards wine, but will not be my last. At one point, I excused myself to go the restroom and when I returned to our table, my son informed me that "they had come by to fix my napkin." He was quite impressed with the way that it was folded and put back on the table for my return. My wife inquired about a 3 course meal (I believe she had seen something online about it) but we did not see it offered on the menu. She asked Richard, and he said he would go speak with the chef. He came back with a couple of menus, and my wife and I ordered off of the menu that he provided us. We had a choice of soup or salad to start. My wife chose the Caesar Salad and I chose the Soup du Jour, which was a Beef, Chicken, Barley soup. This soup was "Out of Bounds" delicious!! The soup smelled (and almost tasted) like a chicken sausage gumbo, and was PACKED with flavor and was piping hot. Each bite was an explosion of flavors in your mouth. My son had a "bite" of my soup and could not stop eating! We had to order him his own cup for dessert (that was after he ate some bites of my cheese cake, which was one of the dessert items). For my entree, I opted for the Chipotle Shrimp & Grits, and my wife went with the Filet Mignon. My shrimp and grits came with African Salt Prawns (2), Anson Mills Grits, White Cheddar, Nueske’s Slab Bacon, and Chipotle Butter. While they were good, I didn't think they were great. A couple of pieces of the slab bacon was very hard to chew. The prawns were still in the shell and did not pack too much of a flavor profile. You could definitely taste the chipotle as th
We had never been here before but I was looking for a nice whitetable cloth restaurant that didn't restrict me to only a Sunday brunch menu. Brenner's came through. We started with the Seafood Campechana with homemade chips. It was wonderful. We did have the obligatory Mimosa's which were better than most. We each had the Mimosa Salad and it was very good but we should have split it. My wife had the Gulf Red Snapper which she thoroughly enjoyed. I looked at the menu and several steaks were available but the sides listed were of the breakfast variety. Our server, Nelly, was quite helpful and listed the sides available from the dinner menu and assured me I could order any of them. I ordered the roasted Brussel sprouts and they were very good. The Prime Ribeye was very good as well and more than I could eat. We finished with delicious Beignets and coffee. The service, the atmosphere and the view were first class. We even enjoyed the live music which was never intrusive.
they might have good food but I will never know. I ordered the Texas breakfast. Even though the waiter warned us that food does not all come out at the same time, I expected something worth eating. My scrambled eggs were ice-cold and sloppy. When my mother-in-law asked me what the brown goo on my plate was, I had to tell her that it was cold, slimy potatoes that had soaked up all the grease but none of the flavor from the pulled pork. It was all cold and wet, and someone had clearly forgotten where the microwave was. The others' food look pretty good. I could not eat mine. The service was exquisite though.
