Webster defines gluttony as, “excess in eating; extravagant indulgence in the appetite for food.” I say, “Pufffft!” Huntsville Restaurant Week (HRW) returns in August! For residents, HRW is a chance to venture outside of your norm and try a new place or dish in our diverse dining scene. For visitors, consider this your invitation to explore Huntsville/Madison County’s many and ever growing culinary delights. From Tex-Mex to Italian, Thai and sushi to Persian, Greek and good ole’ Alabama BBQ, the Rocket City’s got it all!
The 7th annual Huntsville/Madison County Restaurant Week will be August 10-19. During the 10 tasty days of deals, participating eateries will be offering fixed-price specials that are sure to tempt you—at their locations, no tickets required and reservations only if it is place where you usually need reservations.
Lunches are two-courses at $10 and $15 and dinners are three-courses at $10, $20, $30 and $40. Each place decides how many of the categories they will serve. For our favorite places that do not serve a full lunch or dinner, they will be offering specials in the Bonus Bites category. Bonus Bites are anything but lunch or dinner—think unbelievable chocolate assortments, tantalizing desserts, and wake-me-up breakfasts! What’s more than a bonus? Some places are offering specials in addition to the set categories. (Yeah, they are culinary overachievers and my taste buds say thank you).
Returning for 2018, most of our craft breweries are getting involved! Six of your favorite local breweries are brewing up a special beer just for the 10 days of Huntsville Restaurant Week. Check them out on our website and on the Untappd app.
In addition to the delectable specials, our partners have cooked up other food-related events. All are listed at www.huntsville.org/restaurantweek for more information.

Pamela Brooks Williams is one of the rare Huntsville natives. She is passionate about her city and sharing its highlights with anyone she can snag even for a minute. The reverse of that is her desire to travel—if she hasn’t been, she wants to go. Actually those go hand in hand—wherever she goes, she spreads the gospel of Huntsville! Pam is the blessed mom of 3 very talented, intelligent, busy and beautiful young adults/teenagers (and 1 canine baby). In her spare time, she enjoys . . . wait! Refer to the previous sentences.
