Our History

Brenner's

history

Herman and Lorene Brenner opened the original Brenner’s in 1936. The steakhouse was called Brenner’s Café. At that time, Houston was expanding west, and the original building had to be sold to make way for the construction of Katy Road.

The original Brenner’s restaurant was relocated to its current location just off of the Katy Freeway. This new location gave ample room for the Brenner’s to create their lush gardens in the back of the restaurant. These fabled gardens were said to have been a re-creation of picturesque scenery from Mr. Brenner’s native Germany and a similar lush garden is also the main feature of the second Brenner’s, Brenner’s on the Bayou.

The warm atmosphere for which Brenner’s is known, as well as its delicious food and personalized service is available to all diners that visit.

The rustic, yet elegant Brenner’s on the Bayou opened in 2007 in the same location which formerly housed the Rainbow Lodge. In order to maintain its delectable menu selections, available at both locations, Landry’s Executive Chef Kathy Ruiz worked alongside Mrs. Brenner to re-create some of Brenner’s favorite dishes. Some of the favorites include Crunchy German Potatoes, Homemade Roquefort Salad Dressing, and the incomparable Apple Strudel.
