We’ve had the amazing opportunity to sample some of the best places in Huntsville. Here is a collective list of the restaurants we’ve visited so far. We will add to this list as we visit the surrounding area cafes, coffee shops, restaurants, diners, pizzerias, taverns, grills, and kitchens. 

We would LOVE to hear your recommendations if we’re missing a great foodie opportunity!

We really enjoyed this restaurant, located in historic and eclectic Five Points. The wait staff was accommodating when we had to change our seating arrangement last minute.

We expected typical bar food, but Ale’s Kitchen really takes all of that fried goodness to the next level. Think gourmet bar food, plated beautifully and also very, very tasty. A little crowded and loud at peak times, but a really cool atmosphere! Definitely a must try!

The Jones Valley location of this popular brunch chain was our destination one day we were all craving breakfast food. We weren’t disappointed! Their Eggs Benedict and country potatoes were a hit with this crew!

Korean Barbecue. What more can we say? Right downtown, on the square, with indoor and outdoor seating, it was great sitting outside under the umbrellas in the summer, enjoying some delicious barbecue!

Right in downtown Huntsville, Commerce Kitchen is usually bustling! The food was great (sweet potato fries!), but it was too loud for us to have conversation.

Everything at Cotton Row was cooked to perfection. We all loved everything we ordered (fried chicken salad – YUM). The wait staff was perfectly helpful and attentive. Loved it for a fancy lunch downtown.

We loved the location of the Cozy Cow; it’s the perfect spot to grab some lunch on a sunny day and head out to the park to enjoy some sunshine! We want to go back and do just that when it’s warm!

Mid-priced Southern cooking, we know, most of you have been there too!

Here is their website.

Dallas Mill serves quick sandwiches like your grandma used to make. Chicken salad, egg salad, strawberry pretzel salad, etc., this place tastes like home and we loved it!

Really delicious bar food and drinks here. We’ve been several times because we can’t get enough. Most of our favorite things at Drake’s are fried (fried pickles and sweet potato fries), but they also have great salads and healthier options.

Man, we loved G’s. The staff was super friendly and the food was good southern cooking. They have a good variety of Southern, home-cooked favorites, served with a smile. Hush puppies are sometimes hard to find, but they have great ones here!

Good Company Cafe is an adorable restaurant. It’s nestled in a shopping strip off South Memorial Parkway. It’s so cozy! If you want to settle down for a comfortable bite to eat with a friend, we suggest Good Company!

One of the main restaurants located in Lowe Mill, Happy Tummy specializes in fresh sandwiches/paninis/wraps. Their sandwiches were pretty fresh and flavorful!

Here is Happy Tummy’s website.

This one was a bit of a drive for us, located off of University Drive. But their cheddar muffins and barbecue were worth the extra few minutes of drive time!

Keegan’s is situated at the top of the hill in Big Spring Park, overlooking the fountain and lawn below. We loved the large glass window/wall and the food is delicious!

This was one of our favorite spots so far. There’s a special room in the far back of the restaurant, a few steps down from the bar, that feels like you’re in an Italian courtyard. It’s pretty awesome. We got the goat cheese fondue to share and it had pesto and marinara mixed in, served with fresh focaccia. Wow.

 Here is more info on Luciano.

Specializing in American food options, the only bad thing about this restaurant is the number of menu options makes it nearly impossible to choose something without having FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). Everything on the menu sounds delicious, complete with breakfast AND lunch/dinner options, so you’re sure to find something you love here. We’ve heard the meatloaf is particularly good.

While Italian food always feels luxurious to consume, Mezza Luna provides a classy environment and aesthetic in which you can fully enjoy your pasta. Tucked away in Jones Valley, but still part of a big shopping center, Mezza Luna is a destination restaurant for us, but still easy to access. The chicken alfredo pasta was a favorite of ours! (Pro tip: Avoid eating outside during the summer; the cow pasture across the road and the swampy area behind the shopping center brings lots of flies to the outdoor seating area.)

At the base of the Huntsville Mountain sits Moe’s BBQ. Moe’s was founded by two sports-loving University of Alabama grads, and it has four flat screen TV’s playing sports games throughout the day. The barbecue is succulent and the southern sides are just as tasty.

Check out their menu here.

We got Moe’s Grill catered to our office one day. It was good, but not really hot by the time it got here. We love chips and salsa/queso/guac and Moe’s really delivered (haha) with those things!

Here is their website.

Right off Whitesburg Drive, in the Publix shopping center, we loved this hibachi grill for lunch. Most of us ordered hibachi chicken, fried rice, and vegetables to make it easy on our chef, but they were also very accommodating with special requests (get the rice extra crispy).

Meet any of your pasta needs at Nothing But Noodles! They serve an incredible variety of pasta dishes (American, Asian, Italian, etc.) and all of them we have tried have been good. We got our pasta as takeout and it was still steaming hot by the time we got it back to the office. Everyone loved their dishes and there was a lot of food leftover. Go ahead and ask for extra breadsticks – we fought over them! They’re so good!

Ol’ Heidelberg is a Huntsville staple, serving traditional German dishes since 1972. The interior of the restaurant is decked out in German decor as well as an abundance of beer on shelves around the walls.

Sitting right on top of the pond at Big Spring Park, Pane Vino provides a fast-classy Italian place that is perfect for lunch. They have several different kinds of flatbread “pizza” as well as delicious fresh salads and we all loved everything we got!

Ruchi is an Indian buffet close to the corner of Whitesburg Drive and Airport Road. The decor inside is very unique and the food was so flavorful, hot, and fresh the time we went! We really enjoyed it.

We had the chance to visit Sam & Greg’s Pizzeria/Gelateria on the square at the end of 2018, right before they had to move locations. The staff was courteous and they served some of the best pizza we had ever eaten! We are looking forward to their reopening in the Fall of 2019 on the north side of the square in Huntsville!

Some of us LOVED our experience at Surin, but some of us didn’t care for it as much. The Chicken Noodle Bowl was phenomenal and a lot of food. The lunch entrees are all served with a complimentary cup of tofu coconut soup, which was delicious.

Taco Mama handled our large take out order like a champ and everything we got was still hot and delicious when we brought it back. We all love Taco Mama! You can’t go wrong with anything you order, but we suggest you stick to the pre-built taco menu options because it’s easy and their concoctions all work well!

Here is their website.

This Mediterranean fast-casual restaurant is really close to our office, so we order from them fairly often. They package their takeout items so well, everything is always the correct temperature when you get it back. We have been really impressed with the service and quality of food we’ve received from Taziki’s! Their sauces are out of this world, try the Taziki sauce, hummus, any of their aioli’s.

Although it can be hard to find parking spots for this deli-type eatery, the walk through Big Spring Park is lovely and we didn’t mind at all. They have sandwiches, shakes, ice cream, and burgers, all of which were pretty good. There isn’t a lot of seating at all, so don’t go with a large group.

Zoe’s is another Mediterranean fast-casual restaurant we enjoy. Everything is so fresh and flavorful, we always feel so healthy after we eat here. Most of their meals come with side salads and their house dressing is wonderful.
