I've been there twice and both times food was very good. Food is always fresh. Large portions of food and just about any kind of beer or liquor available.

Our first trip to this place and we ordered a BLT and a special burger with the bratwurst &egg. Both were delicious, gourmet seasoned with a variety of tastes. Also of note are the very good house-made chips-thin, crunchy and fresh out of the cooker. Not your run-of-the-mill food, definitely worth the trip. A huge selection of beers.

You want a great Reuben and a cold beer? Under the Radar has it!!! Their food is all made there and their beer selection is worthy for even the pickiest beer drinker. Nice downtown place to go!

I enjoy the food quite a bit but I hate going here because of how loud it is even with a few people in the place. If they would put some window coverings and some other noise buffering items in the room, it would really help. The food is really good although I think they need to add some seasonal... More

This was our first visit to Below the Radar. We had heard good things about the food, so we decided to visit on a Sunday. We found ourselves a captive audience to some very mediocre musicians playing tag-team sets. It was loud, and there was no place where a conversation could happen without shouting. One of the food items was... More

We tried different appetizers and various entree's and all were great! The donut bread pudding was outstanding!! Our waitress was attentive and very helpful with selecting beer's for... More

Stopped in for lunch 1 barmaid working whole bar with a couple of other ladies not sure what there role was but seemed the bar maid was doing everything. Sandwich was pretty good Rueben. Beers were average. Had a flight from the brewery. Overall great selection of craft beers on tap some local other national craft breweries.

We were in Huntsville for a weekend and looking for a place to grab a late light dinner and good drinks. Also wanted a place that wasn't too loud since this was date weekend. Ordered the Cheeseburger and BTR chips, the Make Me Wanna Stout and a Martini. Burger was awesome as was the Stout and Martini. The "piano man"... More
