Good First Impresion
It was my first visit. I used Google Maps to find it and it was a block off as to location. The facility was nice, newly renovated and nicely laid out. At times the noise made it hard to talk with my friend but not impossible. The service and food and beverage selection was very good. I'll be back!

Some of the best food in Huntsville
Definitely some of the best food in Huntsville. Great menu, that is very foodie friendly. My wife and I enjoyed great appetizers, a wonderful venison dish and a fantastic shepherd pie for our respective entrees, and maple bacon blondies for dessert. I must also mention that our server that night was great.

Great local gastro pub
BTR is a great local gastro pub. Excellent beer selection, warm people, better food than most places around.

meet before a show
Pleasantly surprised as I don't typically like "bars". The food was quite good the beer list was GREAT. Walking distance to the Civic Center/Embassy Suites (just over a mile). Really a great place to meet friends/co workers. Would have given 5 stars for service but as it got busy, our waitress all but disappeared. We had a reservation for 530, got there a little before 5 and went straight to our table. They were very accommodating when we had an extra person show up and moved us right to a larger table. Yes, it's loud...it's a bar ;-)

This was our fifth time eating
This was our fifth time eating at Below the Radar and have always enjoyed the food and beer selections. I have tried several items on the menu and everything is quite tasty and it really would be hard to find any better food in Huntsville. I love the venison ,even though Saturday it was served a little cool and would have been better if it was hot upon arrival to the table.My other diners had the ribeye and fish & chips and they both were impressed and enjoyed with their choices. All in all, Below the Radar is one of my favorite places to eat in Huntsville and I highly recommend it for anybody looking a great place to eat.

This place is great. Wish
This place is great. Wish we could go more often. Creative, eclectic menu - bar food with a gourmet twist. Great, ever changing beer list. Now they also have their own brew. Truly one of the best places for a casual meal, group gathering, or just to sit at the bar.

This was my fourth time at Below the Radar. I enjoy the food, the service and the different selection each time I go.

Excellent food and beer and
Excellent food and beer and wine selection. Both the duck and pork chop were a flavorful delight at our table. Entering the restaurant we felt like we entered the wrong restaurant. Didn't care for walking through a casual bar to get to the dining area. Even though the servers performed a great service and were very knowledgeable on the food and beverages, the t-shirt and jeans made me feel that I was more at a fast food joint than a fine dining experience. Also, thought the tables could have used a table cloth of some sort.

It's the best combination of beer and food in Huntsville.

Yummy Downtown Huntsville Dining
Very good food (Grilled cheese and tomato soup was yummy!) with great service. Live music was excellent... though it made the dinner very loud. That's not bad, just don't expect a quiet meal on live music nights. Will definitely go back.

Happy birthday dinner!
Took my husband here for his birthday. We were headed to the VBC for a show after. This was great because it is close to VBC, great service, speedy but EXCELLENT food! The toffee pie was Ahhhhh-mazing! Good beer, good food, fun with friends! The only thing better would be more comfy chairs and seating for a long dinner. The high chairs are not comfy for short people when your legs can't reach the bars! That would have made it perfect! But it was still worth it!

good food and extensive beer variet
The food was very good but could use a little more variety.
There was an extensive beer list with many choices. Excellent place for beer aficionados.
Service was good. Food was a little slow coming out.

This was our first time to Below the Radar for brunch, and it was simply awesome! The food, the service, everything was great. Will definitely be back for brunch again!

Best birthday ever
I love this place! I came in with my parents to celebrate my birthday and had a blast. The food and service were awesome.
Megan our server was friendly and attentive, I want for nothing the whole evening. Great bear list and finished with an incredible perfect manhattan. I will be back!!

I took my boyfriend here this past Saturday for his birthday. Below The Radar was recommended by a member of my staff @ work. She said the food was amazing. And, it was! This place offers an extensive beer selection as well. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the service. Our waitress remembered that it was my boyfriend's bday because I wrote it in my reservation comments. How sweet! Definitely coming back!

Beer, beer, beer, and good food.
Great beer list and very good house made beers. Great food that is not typical pub grub. My dish of quail with summer greens was seasoned perfectly and was a perfect choice for a hot summer night. Will be back!

We really enjoyed our visit.
We really enjoyed our visit. Having a table off to the side allowed us to be able to enjoy everyone's company without disturbance. Food was excellent as was the beer. Thanks.

A Great Place to Relax and Eat
My wife and I have been here on 3-5 different occasions and each time has been great. The food is excellent and the service is top notch. It's so nice to have an upscale, yet not upscale priced restaurant where you can dine on good food and feel safe. It's about a 10 mile drive from our house but well worth the trip. My favorite is the Fish and Chips, usually me wifey and I share this meal as the portion is to much for one person IMO. If you haven't tried Below The Rader please do so!!!

Below the Radar / Way above average
Had a reat evening there with a couple of friends - Open Table reservation was a short cut and definately helped. Food was great, beer was awesome and the service by Louis was OUTSTANDING

Fun Night Out
Below the Radar is an unexpected find for the Huntsville area. Great food with some unusual, but delicious, choices. Fabulous beer selection and our waitress was extremely knowledgable, helpful and responsive. I especially love all the GF choices.

We chose Below the Radar to celebrate my husband's birthday with friends. The service and food were exceptional!

Great Beer, Great Food, Too Loud
I usually eat here on my own when I don't mind the noise, but brought a friend on Friday 26 July 13. The beer selection is fabulous, and the food is always awesome. My personal favorite, and the favorite of my friends from Alaska that have come here with me, is the fish and chips. The cod portions are generous, the fries are well seasoned and perfectly cooked, and the batter on the fish is not overwhelming or overcooked. We had lamb chops as an appetizer on this visit; AMAZING! Well-seasoned, seared impeccably, and the bed of mushrooms and potatoes served as a great start to another wonderful meal. Bottom line, this is a good place for great beer selections, amazing food, just don’t expect to be able to carry a reasonable conversation.

Change in menu
I was really disappointed to see how much they changed the menu. I have to limit my carbohydrate intake and they took off the spiced pecans which was the primary thing I was looking forward to during this trip.
The rest of the food is still pretty amazing, but the old Menu was so much better.

Not perfect - but better than OK
Keep in mind that we visited "Under the Radar" during the early evening on a Tuesday. The food and beer were excellent! The service bordered on excellent. Our biggest objection - the place was loud from the time we walked through the door. As the evening progressed, the noise level increased to the point that carrying on a conversation with the person sitting immediately next to you became a useless endeavor. We'll go back - but we're thinking a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon might be more appropriate for our "likes" and "dislikes".

Good food, great service, poor parking, somewhat noisy. Overall very good

Below the Radar
My husband and I dined at BTR for the second time this week. Wonderful lunch and dinner! A happy place....energetic....really good service. We will definitely return!

The pork steak was perfect
Well cooked and still juicy. Our server, Bonnie, was not only helpful but very knowledgable. A great combination.

Good Meet & and Greet Spot
We had a business associate in town who some of us have never met. Below The Radar was a good spot to have a relaxing meal. Since it's not a formal place, we weren't pressured into the common business talk. The beer list allowed us to have much discussion about our favorites.

Great Night with the Gang
Had a great time. Really loved the beer and food. There was no complaints. You did a great job accommodating our party of 8!
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our recent meal at Below the Radar was my 46th birthday dinner. I made a reservation for four but needed to add two people a few hours before dinner. I called and BTR accommodated us. I appreciate that. The food was very good. We had the charcuterie board as an apppetizer. As it was a special occasion, I had a filet with a tomato rissotto and an arugula salad. Just great! I enjoyed the beer, the pïlsner on tap. It was quite loud on Thursday night but still quite fun. I like BTR and it is quickly becoming one of my favorite restaurants in Huntsville.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed the New American meals that was offered. Great bar, with even better food, def going back
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've been here 3 times now and the food is always excellent. The service was great, she went out of her way to help me with my dietary restrictions (gluten free). They do mark the menu items that are gluten free, but may others can be adjusted as well. I we'll be back again.
