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

So you're tired of the same old Applebee's, Chili's and Panera Bread crap you can get anywhere around Houston. Why don't you challenge yourself to get a few blocks off the highway and visit this great café. The menu has a little bit of everything. Portions are good. Large selection of beers. "Austin" feel. Great place to meet somebody, be... More

This is a little gem of a place that I love. When I am in the Heights, this is my go to place. Fried Chicken and red velvet waffles, scary delicious, and my friend had a breakfast pizza that was presented beautifully. The large cappuccino is as big as a fish bowl and delicious. The eclectic interior the friendly staff,... More

I love the Houston style of hangouts. You know, ice houses, bar/grills, etc. This is an all day joint. They serve breakfast, and emphasize coffee, but as others have noted, it is actually a place to drink, graze and hang out. Our group of four spent a couple hours here today. When we arrived, it was raining, and we sat... More

Although it bills itself as a "coffee bar and lounge" it is more of a Texas grill and café. This is one of the Creek Company restaurants. There are Cedar Creek, Dry Creek and Canyon Creek as well. The Set-Up: Onion Creek is located in heights and like all of the Creeks, Onion Creek has a casual Austin Texas theme.... More

I just had lunch at one of my favorite eating spots, I do have several, different eating spots for different moods. Yesterday was perfect; 75 degrees outside with a bright sun, the perfect setting for a cold beer and the best hot sandwiches you will ever put your mouth around. The outdoor patio is surrounded by trees and the air... More
