Went on a Weds around one pm - had the Best Bloody Marys - spicey and garnished with pickled green beans and olives!! Had the mushroom swiss burger with grilled jalapenos - just delicious!! Fresh fresh burger roll. Sat outside in the back courtyard - lovely with ivey all along the old brickwalls! Just a great time with good company and great food and drink! Very good service also! All for under 20 bucks!

One server at 3pm on a Saturday who was overwhelmed and rude. She refused to take our food order but was willing to take our drink order which she ended up forgeting anyway. :-/

I've spent hundreds of nights in Houston and never had a real good or fun time, but this place is as close as it gets. The last time I was here, the bartendress was bouncing a local offensive drunk. Rather unfairly in my opinion. I think they disagreed on politics more than any objectionable behavior.

Anyhow it's more often quieter and the perfect place for Atkins diet lovers. Steaks, grilled meats and nice sautéed veggies as accompaniments. Prices are a fair exchange given the cool old stamped metal tile ceiling and the huge dark wooden bar that dominates the atmosphere of the place. Like so many of our inner cities in America, may I suggest that if you're walking here from a local hotel or home that you use caution and common sense. Take a cab or go armed, you will be targeted in this neighborhood...

Great burgers all around and lots of beer to choose from. A favorite of ours when in the area. They grill the jalapenos freshly sliced right on the grill for the burgers--try 'em if you like'em.

I have been eating at Market Square off and on for years since I live very close by. I think of it a classic neighborhood bar/restaurant. Good place for a quick drink and a burger/club sandwich or other bar food. It's not fine dining (and they don't charge like fine dining), but I have never been disappointed with the food. Hamburgers have occasionally got good mentions in the press. Staff is always friendly.
