dinner and drinks outside!

Coffee house? Really? We ordered a pizza and a hummus plate at the counter with a couple of beers then retired to the ample courtyard to wait for our meals. There are tv's and a bar outside and lots of tables. Great p-lace to hang out! Meals were brought out to us and they exceeded our... read more

What a lovely place! Visited for the first time yesterday, but hope to be back soon. The outdoor patio is great for enjoying the delicious food. Would highly recommend for a relaxed dinner or just for sharing drinks with friends.

If you are looking for a cool outdoor cafe with a great vibe, look no further than this place in the Heights. Food was amazing and we had the brunch. Wish I had more time to go back for the regular menu.

After reading the reviews I stay with the one about "love to hang out after work on Friday " which would I totally do if it wasn't so far away. Food is really good, beer selection great, but it is a chill and hang out place. Which means if u plan to visit don't be super hungry cause it will... More

This is our happy hour hangout on Fridays after work. The patio area is the reason this place is as popular as it is. There are better spots to find your favorite craft brews but the beer selection at Onion Creek is good enough and there's a full bar if you've had a long week. The menu is decent but... More

I never miss Onion Creek when I am in Houston. It is in the Heights district and if I were to live in a Houston this is where I would want to be. Onion Creek has great food, an excellent beer selection and the music is great. Not live but they play great stuff. You order at the counter so... More

Houston’s Heights area has an abundance of places to dine and drink and one of them is Onion Creek Coffee House Bar & Lounge. An establishment known for its food as much as for its beverages, Onion Creek is a popular hangout for locals and others who want some good tasting bar food and a wide selection of beer. Onion...

I've never been to a restaurant/bar/coffee house that has no servers. At Onion Creek you have to stand in line at the counter whether it's to place a giant food order or to get a whiskey and sprite. It wasn't too much of a pain, just a hassle that made no sense. The best part about this place is the... More

You order at the bar, sign your check, take a number and wait. Three of us together. Two orders wrong, all slow. No offer for drink refills. No napkins on table. Very expensive for a burger or sandwich of not to good quality. I won't go back. Better choices available.

This was not my first choice but usually the place is ok. The staff is a little too laid back for me and after seeing so many flies in the restaurant -- I should have turned around then but... We were there and going to have a nice summer lunch, I guess the resident roach had the same idea. My... More
