Alabama's Dining Celebration Set for August 15-24

Discount dining at ten restaurants in Decatur and Hartselle.

For the third year, the Alabama Tourism Department is coordinating a statewide Restaurant Week, a marketing event designed to increase traffic by offering prix fixe lunch and dinner offering which typically include appetizer, entrĂ©e, and dessert at a set price. Ten of Morgan County’s best restaurants will offer special fixed price lunches and dinners during the 10-day promotion set for August 15-24, giving diners the opportunity to enjoy select dishes at a reasonable price point.

There are no coupons or discount books to buy or bring. The Alabama Restaurant Week pricing is fixed at $10, $20, and $30 for dinner and $5, $10, and $15 for lunch. In most cases, the price is per person and does not include tax, tip and drink.

The 10-day promotion kicks off in Decatur on August 15th during Downtown Decatur’s 3rd Friday monthly celebration which hits the streets beginning at 5 p.m. Following the next day during Watermelon Day at the Morgan County-Decatur Farmers Market, there will be special cooking demonstrations from participating Alabama Restaurant Week chefs.

Participating restaurants include Albany Bistro, Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q (both locations), C.F. Penn Hamburgers, Fite’s Waterfront Dining, Simp McGhee’s, Timbuck2, Mellow Mushroom, and The Brick Deli, all located in Decatur, and the Freight House located in Hartselle.
