Great beer and ambiance

The Nook has the best beer selection in Huntsville... close to 50 beers on tap and hundreds of bottles. Great variety of local, U.S., and foreign beers. The outdoor patio is beautiful, the perfect retreat to enjoy good beer. The Nook has a German feel to it that is helped by the owner and... read more

Neat place. First visit. Will definitely return. Owner very engaged in business. Unbelievable selection of beers. Super large patio area is really nice and has heaters and fire tables for use in cool months. Love that it is no smoking or vaping. Music played is classic soul and R&B mostly, very nice and relaxing. No TVs - which is neat... More

If you like beer, this is THE place to go. 500 beers available, categorized by style -- light, hoppy, sour, bitter, dark, etc. Draft and bottles in all formats and from all over the world. Knowledgeable waiters. Beautiful outdoor deck in a lush garden with subtle lighting and plenty of seating. I did not try the food -- I was... More

The Nook is without a doubt, the absolute best place in the greater Huntsville area to grab a beer!! They have an amazingly large selection of both draft and bottled beer!! In the summer the patio becomes the quintessential place to grab a brew with friends. The food is a 6/10, don't go there to get a full meal, their... More

A friend of mine treated me for lunch and I ordered the Chicken Chili soup and the Pimento Grilled Cheese sandwich. I was impressed with the Food! However, it is a little pricey for me.

The beer selection is outstanding but the German food specials are even better! Great beer and great food at a great place. The patio has a great atmosphere also. Worth a visit for a beer and good pub food.

Huntsville has been the home of the Army Missile Command and NASA since the 1950's and as a result we have higher than the usual population of Geeks and Nerds. In fact, one of the local companies is called Geeks and Nerds! The Nook has been located in the same location on Bob Wallace Avenue near the Redstone Arsenal since... More

This is a great place to get together with friends for beer/cider. The cheese/cracker plate was fine--but we didn't eat any other food.

If you are looking for a place with the largest selection of craft beer look no further than The Nook. Their selection of draft and bottled beer is unrivaled in all of Huntsville. The atmosphere and service are also both top notch!!! The proverbial Achilles Heel of The Nook would be the food. Sadly it's on the lower end of... More

Was visiting friends in Huntsville and they took us to The Nook. What a wonderful surprise. Fantastic tap list and pages of bottles. We were able to order tastings of multiple beers. Had some really nice local beer plus some standards for the non-geeks in our group. Were there on a quiet night, just a few other tables were occupied... More
