I came here to try their house beers, but I seemed to have stumbled onto a small office party and a packed house. I squeezed in at the bar and talked to the bartender about their home brews. They had several such offerings but no flights. I tried the Red Irish Ale, which was decent, and the Octoberfest [sic], which... More

We absolutely LOVE The Phoenix on Westheimer!! While most pass it off as just another brewpub, they actually have an incredible menu. With lots of vegetarian options too!! They have started to brew their own beer, which is super tasty. On big game nights, you can usually find a projector displaying the game. Sometimes they even have a giant display... More

Amazing food, great drink specials and always impeccable service. Friendly atmosphere you have to see for yourself. The owner is they're almost every day and all regulars know him by name. Creative daily specials and "soup of the days". Often celebrating holidays with outdoor fun like crawfish boils, slides and pools. Also get your exercise every Monday with the Phoenix... More

This is a particularly good spot for a late bite. I love their chicken fried chicken, burgers and chicken quesadilla, but everything is good and cooked to order. Reasonable prices for the beers and house wines. It is a sports bar/pub, so be prepared for some noise on occasion.

We walked in the door and was greeted with a huge welcome, the place has a warm cozy feeling with sports decor, and lots of TV's and a beautiful... More

I go for the fish n chips and sometimes for the appetizers. Noisy, often crowded with sports fans watching on multiple tvs. Pretty loud. Beer specials for beer drinkers. Full bar. Pub atmosphere. Friendly staff. Not top of my list, but I do like their fish n chips and sweet potato fries.

We've been frequenting the Phoenix on Westheimer for over 7 years! And, we don't even live in H-Town! That's how great this restaurant/sports bar/neighborhood hang-out is. It's important to so many people: home of watch parties for the alumni of colleges, not only just the ones located in Texas! Rugby, baseball, trivia nights - you name it - you'll find... More

The Phoenix is well located on Westheimer near Lamar Junior High School. Parking on side and back of building is free--No Valet. Varied menu and great selection of draft beers including those made on site. Waitress Heysee is very polite and friendly. Food exceptionally good and fresh tasting.We will return for sure.

I love to go to The Phoenix to watch sports or just for a great beer and pub food. They have great Fish & Chips. It's open late, which I often need. The wait staff has always been wonderful

Welcome friends. The Phoenix on Westheimer is formerly known as the Firkin and Phoenix. Firkin Die-Hards will always call it the Firkin. Many of you have noticed the cosmetic changes that came with the name change. It's the still same great bar, owners and staff. For those who have never stopped in, come and make it your home away from home. NOW BREWING! - As of January 14, 2015, the Phoenix became a brewpub. We started selling our Kinfolk (Kolsch style) beer on February 17, 2015. Come checkout the latest changes to the pub and sample our house made beer! Opened in December 2006, The Phoenix is a neighborhood pub with a relaxed and jovial atmosphere. We want to be your home away from home, a welcoming place to meet your friends for a pint, some fine food and a good time. We offer a wide selection of bottled and draught beers on tap as well as wines and cocktails. Our extensive menu includes traditional pub favourites such as fish'n'chips, shepherd's pie and bangers and mash, as well as burgers and salads. We also provide a number of different ways to unwind, from darts, billiards and ping pong. For you sports fans, we have 12 LCD TVs throughout the pub, as well as 4 projectors for those big games.
