Our Story

The Crown Jewel of Texas Creole Cuisine and Southern Hospitality

Brennan's of Houston has a rich history rooted in the 1967 opening as a sister restaurant to the world-famous Commander's Palace in New Orleans. Incorporating the freshest local ingredients, we offer exceptional dining, including many original creations among our award-winning cuisine. From pan to plate to palate, our brigade of culinary professionals directs its overwhelming passion for food and hospitality at creating great memories for every guest every time. 

Our unpretentious, efficient staff -- a lovable band of misfits that range from Ph. D's to those who couldn't get out of high school quick enough -- connects to one-to-one with customers to pinpoint what truly matters, then tailors each dining experience to their specific desires to create lasting memories. For weekend dinners, Brennan's Creole Jazz Brunch remains a four-star tradition among Houston's Sunday brunch enthusiasts. The air is filled with an abundance of tantalizing jazz music and the fragrance of fresh flowers; southern mainstays and twists on classic favorites are graciously served in sun-filled dining areas.

Our Team

Unmatched Reputation for Standout Dining and Lasting Memories

At every level of our management and service teams, we revere the Brennan’s heritage by approaching each meal as a welcome opportunity to maintain an unmatched reputation for standout dining and lasting memories. We also embrace new ways to keep the restaurant fresh and progressive so that you’ll see us as, well, fresh and progressive as Brennan’s continues to evolve. And what other restaurant caters to its customers in sooooo many ways? — an evening theatre shuttle, cooking classes, a hotel-size ballroom, cookbooks and business books, chef for a day, and a chef’s table? Helen Hayes summed it up by noting that if you rest, you rust, and we’re neither resting nor rusting.
