    We live downtown and eat regularly at Market Square . . . Maggie/Neil the waiter staff and cooks are to die for . . . they make you feel like family. Every time I go I feel as if I am in a local SOHO NYC corner bar/restaurant. A home away… Read more »

    I'm a student at U of H - Downtown and its only a few blocks walk to this burger mecca. Burgers are flame grilled, staff is friendly, good beer selection, and even though its a bar also you dont leave reaking like smoke. Prices are good… Read more »

    Food is satisfactory; I got the philly with blue cheese, which was about 8 bucks and is one of their specialties. The meat was lean, and the bread was soft, but there wasn't much blue cheese, which made it a bit of a rip off. I'll… Read more »

    This place is NEVER too crowded, NEVER too loud and NEVER off my mind for a good eat! I love the location and the outside seating with the fountains and the vines in the back... it's historic I think. Anywho, the beer is cheap and BOY… Read more »

    This is the downtown bar & grill for traditionalists who like good food, reasonably priced drinks, a friendly bartender, and don't need ultra-modern decor to feel trendy. Read more »

    Everything I expected. The food was great. I took the family before a 6:05 Astros game and it was fine for kids, but this place is definetly a bar and would not be kid friendly after hours. Within walking distance of Minute Maid Park. They… Read more »

    I have found no better Saturday lunch than a martini (or two) and blue cheese burger at Market Square Bar & Grill. The MSB&G has been known for years for its martinis, winning more than one readers poll somewhere or another, but the food… Read more »
