Royal Oak Bar & Grill

1318 Westheimer Rd.
Houston, TX 77006
Best Of
Royal Oak Bar & Grill is located just yards away from Boondocks and shares the same ownership, but is considerably quieter without being a snooze. The décor displays an attention to detail rarely seen in Montrose, as the wood flooring, leather seating, upstairs lounge, televisions, indie-rock soundtrack, Prohibition-era portraits on the walls and chandeliers made from deer antlers all create a unique neighborhood experience. Food here includes humongous personal pizzas, shrimp and grits, and a heap of truffle fries that eats like a meal. Be sure to check out the front patio, which faces Westheimer for optimum people-watching; sitting outside here is cheaper than a movie ticket and just as entertaining. The Wednesday happy hour is whiskey-centric and well worth a stop.
