Depends on the exact situation. But a granular texture (minerals clearly visible and identifiable in an optical microscope, if not to the naked eye) would usually suggest a plutonic origin. A very fine-grained, or even glassy, groundmass is typically volcanic - such rocks can have larger phenocrysts, which formed in a magma chamber prior to eruption.
