From its opening, I have always enjoyed the food and the view at Brady’s Landing on the Houston Ship Channel. Large ocean ships pass right in front of the windows. Last week I invited a business associate for lunch. Since we’re both involved in marine operations I figured he’d enjoy Brady’s Landing. Most of the other guests were in business casual attire; even a few in jacket and tie. Just when we were about to get our food at the buffet, 4 workers came in; straight from a dirty jobsite. They wore mud caked pants and shirts that had not seen a washer in weeks. I was embarrassed that I had taken my guest to this place. In the thousands of restaurants I have frequented, I have never seen anything like it; not even at fast-food places. The dirty men sat right behind us and the wait staff did not mention anything about a minimum dress code; like wearing clean clothes. Judging from some of the other reviews, management does not seem to care.
My family took me there for my birthday and it was very disappointing. The only menu we received was for barbeque, I was there for the seafood. The waiter did mention that they had a blackened redfish on special, priced at $22.00 and so my husband and I decided to have that, I expected a blackened fish with vegetables, and we got ONE filet of the fish with green beans and rice along with one carrot. My daughter ordered the baked potato and could not decide whether to get the chopped beef or the pulled pork to go with it and the waiter made a face at her like she was taking too long to make up her mind. The freaking place was deserted, except for the wedding party that was in the event room we were the only other people there and it was a Saturday evening.
The outside of the restaurant looked like it could of used some landscaping and someone to mow the grass, it was overgrown and looked like a vacant lot. I did enjoy the view of the water and some cargo ships, since it is the ship channel. All in all we would not go back there again.
I did read a review (2009) from someone who said that they were putting money to make improvements to the restaurant and surrounding area, they must of decided not to because it looked neglected.

I went there for my husband's job and I heard from some people that it was a nice place to go because it was on the water by the ship channel, so I was all excited. I get there and am extremely disappointed with the whole look of it. It's buffet on Friday and Saturday which isn't nice if you don't like anything on the buffet. The food was not hot and looked like it had been out there for hours. I tried a little portion of the food they had out and it was all nasty, everything was over salted, cold and just plain gross.
The chairs are coming apart, I say this because I felt something poking me in the back and it was a piece of wood off the chair. You are on the water yes, but all you see is big ugly equipement and it kind of smells nasty over there.
This is not some where I would ever tell people to go. You spend a lot of money for food that is not beyond mediocre, the waitstaff is slow and the bartner we had was rude and you could tell didn't want to be there.
The only good thing about that night was there was a photographer taking pictures by the Christmas tree.

My family and I try Brady's Landing for their Thanksgiving buffet. We had not been there in quite a few years. One of my friends told me that there has been some major changes recently. We decided to give it a try... WOW were we impressed!! The build has and is going thru some major renivation. The company is putting some big money into making sure that Brady's Landing is going to be around for a long time. The rooms were decorated and it looked like every banquet was being used to seat the massive amount of people that showed up for thanksgiving. It was a real professional show. The 2 grand buffets were ""Las Vegas"" style quality. I asked our server what the big differences were. She said they had a new General Manager, a new chef, and a whole new attitude toward service and their guests. She was also very attentive and made us feel like we were the only ones there. The food was ""to die for"" (we went thru the buffet about 5 times). I can not wait to go back for x-mas.

I had heard about this restaurant for years but had never gone as it's a bit of a drive. We went last week for Sunday Brunch and it was a Wonderful treat. The Best brunch that we've found in Houston. As I write this review we are preparing to go to brunch there again today. One Tip: try to save some room for dessert.
Bradys landing did not respect my contract. The wait staff was rude to my guest, telling my guest to get themselves up an serce their own tea. My contract stated they would serve the cake, staff did not want to serve the cake. They did not have the champagne ready not did they want to serve it. I had to leave the banquet hall while an important part of my daughter's event was taking place to go and ask them to serve the champagne. The food was cold and they were serving guests partial meals. Overall, I would not recommend Brady's Landing..

The landing was not worth the drive. I make this statement because most of the people that are willing to pay the $27+ for ""all you can eat"" do not live anywhere near the landing. It is located in a less than desirable area of town. It does have a nice view of the ship channel, in all its cargo ships glory. The building itself is nice with great personality. There are plenty of banquet space for rent ""probably the only reason this place is still in business"". The staff was helpful and adequately professional. The worst thing about the place was the food. I honesty felt that I have eaten better at a Golden Coral. Best thing was the salad bar, it was fresh, but still just a bunch of lettuce. I will have to say I sampled every savory item on display and nothing came close to being satisfying. Many of the items appeared to be previously frozen ""fried shrimp and catfish"". My last selection was the Gumbo. I lifted the lid and noticed an aroma that I had never smelt before. After a few moments of debating whether to try it or not I laddled me a bowl. When I sat back at the table I took my first bite and realized what the taste was, musk. I sit here almost an hour later still unable to get the taste of funk out of my mouth. Diner Beware.

I went to Brady's Landing for Easter brunch with 4 friends (we all go to Rice). We don't go out and spend a lot of money eating a lot so we were looking forward to Brady's Landing for a while as a nice treat for Easter. However, it was a huge dissapointment. Not only was it in an pretty sketchy area of town, but the food and service were both orrible and the views were of ugly freight boats. There was a lot of food but most of it had been sitting out for hours and with no waiters replacing it. We had to scrape the bottom of the platter to get any food at all, and all of it was tepid and unappetizing. We were all very dissapointed and felt sick afterwards. It was also very overpriced for the quality of the food and service.
