The BBQ we like the best since we've been here (3 years) is Greenbrier's and the one at 27028 Old Highway 20 (further away from the highway).

I did not know we had a mellow mushroom in Huntsville. I <3 that place. The only place I've ate at in the providence area is Tony Little's Italy and I did not enjoy it that much though I've been looking for a genuine Italian restaurant and this one came off very American and mediocre to me.

Surin is fantastic. Everything I had there is fantastic. The Surin Baskets (Appetizer) are to die for. One of the best places in Huntsville/Madison hands down. The succulent cat fish is fantastic, especially the first few bites but my enjoyment did start to wan towards the end. My favorite in the thai curry duck.

I haven't ordered any sushi from them though.

Out of the three "German" restaurants in Huntsville, this one is the most genuine. I lived in Germany for 2/3rds of my life, 11 of which in Heidelberg and the other two taste like nothing I ever had in Germany. Still, I think one things the reviews aren't saying is that I wouldn't call the food they serve here as good as a German Restaurant in Germany, but this is the kind of food you would get if you ate at a typical German household in Germany which is more than you can say about the other two when it comes to be actual German food. But I like the food and think it's good in a German home cooked kind of way. And that is enough for me to say if I want to go out for German food in Huntsville, this is the only place I consider and won't go to the other two.

However the atmosphere and decor is definitely lacking, definitely a negative. Every time I eat here, the lack of atmosphere bothers me. It makes me feel like the place is about to go out of business which makes one think, the food might not taste good or be top quality. I hope/they need to fix that. Ole Heidelberg has a wonderful atmosphere, I feel at home when I sit there.

The service here is also the "MOST GERMAN" out of the three German restaurants. That's either a good or bad thing though. In Germany, they never rush you or bother you unless you ask. When you go out and eat in Germany, they expect you to stay a long time, have a good time, drink, gossip, then drink more and have some fun. You will never feel rush here but you might have to ask for a refill. Versus the typical American restaurant where they wait on every need of yours and are very polite and refill your cup without asking but then expect you to be in and out in 30 minutes or quicker.

I also say the deserts they sale are very popular in Germany, although Spaghetti ice isn't German exclusively, it is very popular in Germany. VERY and taste just like what you would get in Germany as well.
