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

Fantastic lunch with family visiting from England! We had a young vegetarian and the restaurant not only had some great choices for her, they were happy to create something for her too! 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

Beer and wings were on my mind and I found this place using the map app on my phone Great selection of beers and super friendly staff The wings, although big and meaty were tasteless. I ordered the level above hot hoping for a little kick. The sauce at best, for my taste buds, wasn't even mild. I ended up... More

Below the Radar is a nice sleepy local restaurant and micro brewery in downtown Huntsville. Diverse menu with very good food to meet anyone needs. Tonight I had the Cerdo Ahumado while sitting at the bar. Spicy pork belly slices thin on a bed of creamy polenta with grilled Conecuh sausage and an chipotle prickly pear BBQ sauce. This disk...
