Hit up this place on a Wednesday night after a cold front came in. Onion Creek is a cool Austin vibe neighborhood bar with a huge patio, probably prefect for smokers, though I can't imagine being comfortable outside in Houston. The place has long hours, opening up early in the morn for its coffee fanatics and then closing at the typical time of 2am.

The selection seemed adequate and priced cheap to average. It was Texas pints on Wednesday and after 5-6 beers I think I dropped 12 bucks plus tip. Some of the Belgians I saw were priced nicely to about as cheap as I've seen. I think over all its a good value place. The only staff I was talking to, I think Jeff, was pretty cool for convo, and knew enough about the beers they had to entertain, though wasn't much into exploring or talking about styles. The crowd was slow to mellow on the night, though he acted like different hours get different people and different masses, obviously.

The food and atmosphere here are great. I live right around the corner so its a nice place to walk and have a bite to eat and a beer. However, my biggest complaint about Onion Creek is that they do not have proper glassware. I know this might be a minor point but when someone asks me to drink a Brooklyn chocolate stout out of the bottle or a Chimay out of a pint glass you kind see my point. I'm not trashing the place because the food is really great and the selection is very good for a local restaurant/coffee house/bar, but just be prepared to have to request a glass. This is a great place to go and have good beer and good conversation with you and your friends.

Onion Creek is the perfect place to grab a bite to eat and some good beers on a nice day. Very small amount of seating inside and tons of picnic tables outside with plenty of shade from trees and umbrellas to go around. They have a fairly simple menu mainly comprising of sandwiches, burgers and salads but good luck on finding something that isnt delicious. I personally recommend that blue burger but I have had several others and some sandwiches and I always end up very pleased with my meal.

The place stays fairly busy so the guys at the bar taking your order expect you to know what you want by the time you get up there. With that being said, they are very helpful when it comes to giving you recommendations or helping you with beer questions. The selection is pretty great for it being a restaurant. Double door fridge full of bottles and cans with about 20 or so taps on the wall. Craft beer dominates the BMC selection and they have a couple of bombers to choose from as well.

Bottom line, the place has great food, great atmosphere (always seem to be jamming good play lists), good beer line up and it is very reasonably priced if not considered cheap compared to other Houston spots.
