This was a good burger place. Was confused upon entering, you immediately see a bar on your right and then open seating. After standing around without being greeted, I asked the bar person if we were going to be seated - was informed to grab a menu, seat yourself and then return to the bar to place an order. I...

The Onion Creek is a nice restaurant. Good selection of food and very big selection of beers. Nice patio. Decent service. Good place to hang out.

Love this place! I am on the go all day long visiting jobsites and I make it a point to be in the heights area in order to make this my late lunch spot. I intentionally skip breakfast so I can fully enjoy my drinks and meals. This place is awesome! It has great staff and the ambiance is great.... More

I love, love, love Onion Creek. Let me just get that out of the way. It's got Austin nostalgia, a great patio, good coffee and a nice beer selection, tasty food, and an overall pleasant vibe. It's a busy spot. Talk buzzes in the air. Interesting people mill around up to the counter and back to their tables. Sunday brunch... More

Great Value across the board. I love that it located in The Heights. I there is a parking lot but it gets full quick because a lot of people come out for steak nights. The steak nights are on Mondays and Wednesdays. Mondays are the most chill and Wednesdays are busier. I love the old school funk music that they... More

For a place we use to be regulars at it's not quite the same, good food, but not as good as before. The growth of the area makes it difficult to get there too. Still worth checking out.

Decided to eat in the Heights and was not disappointed with our selection. I went with the Maple Chicken and my significant other chose the breakfast bowl with brisket. The Maple Chicken was delicious but my girl was not to impressed with the breakfast bowl

We stopped here on the way out of Houston after my wife ran the Houston Marathon. I didn't have much of an expectation and it didn't leave much of an impression. The beer selection was almost all from Texas, which is fine. I was pleasantly surprised to see one of Austin's finest from 512 Brewery. The food was pretty standard... More

Went with some friends for a bike ride and stopped in here for a pint and a snack. They gave a good selection of draft beers and they made some good nachos. The place has a great relaxed atmosphere in a nice area of Houston. I will definitely return when we don't have a few hours of biking to do... More
