Best Happy Hours in Fort Worth
Anna Caplan is a Fort Worth freelance critic who has contributed reviews
and news to the Star-Telegram since 2009. Here are her top picks for
the area’s best food-oriented happy hours.
With beer at $5, cocktails for $7 and reserve wine $9, the drinks are a steal at Fixe, but the best deal may be the $8 plates. From Jack’s Salad (crispy chicken skin, pear and gouda) to the outrageously good burger (more Fixe sauce, please) and fries, park yourself on the patio here from 4:30–7pm, Monday through Saturday. 5282 Marathon Ave. (Clearfork), Fort Worth 76109, 682-707-3965
With a vastly discounted menu during Happy Hour—er, make that Booze & Bites Social Hour, Monday–Friday from 3–6pm—the selection of tasty treats is seemingly endless. Hovering in the $8–$21 range, items include charcuterie boards, mini beef Wellingtons and fried oyster sliders. And the champagne starts at $10. 5212 Marathon Ave. (Clearfork), Fort Worth 76109, 817-737-5212
From 4–6pm Mondays through Thursdays, the seafood is fresh, delicious and discounted at this beloved University Park Village haunt. Happy Hour wines are $6—and so are hand rolls. Oysters clock in at $18 for a dozen—not too shabby—while the calamari and Pacific Dip are $7. 1600 S. University Drive, Fort Worth 76107, 817-887-9995
