First of all this place can be pricy, so lunch is definitely the time to go ($9-$16). They are known for the shrimp and grits, but don't be fooled the fish tacos are the true mouth watering item. I also had the sorbetini, which was yummy. Need to like champagne to like that drink. Good service, great location.

The food is okay, especially for the price. Expensive for what you get. Staff is not well trained enough to be charging these prices. The wait staff is more the lines of a Ruby Tuesday. I don't mind paying this much but expect the experience to be worth it. The booths are tight and cramped and the tables in the... More

One step below Cotton Row. (same owner) Good food, good service and not as fancy as its sister restaurant. Better atmosphere for kids. Good for a business lunch or taking the family out for dinner.

The association of fried food and the south does not hold here. Went for lunch and returned for dinner. Very pleasant decor which does not look like Huntsville. Food was imaginative and very good. Do make a reservation as busy at lunch and dinner.

We really enjoyed this place that is owned by the same folks who own Cotton Row. The menu is less "fancy", but is very good and still upscale. The theme is to offer menu items with fresh ingredients and with a Southern twist. A unique place with a unique food offering. Highly recommended.

Commerce Kitchen is, hands down, my favorite local restaurant. I go here several times a month, it's that good. This place is pretty versatile; I've gone on romantic dates, one-on-one dinners with my best friend, drinks & appetizers at the bar and for brunch. Brunch is always really fantastic. The biscuits are incredible. I typically order eggs and breakfast potatoes,... More

We've been here several times. The food has always been good. The service on the other hand...and it's not the waitstaff, it's one of the managers. Our personal experience with him on multiple occasions was not good: he's condescending, rude, and you would think his actions were with intent to put this otherwise fine eating establishment in a bad light...

I suppose everyone has a pre-conceived idea about the Deep South, and has vague memories of reading about all troubles from the 50's and 60's, the lynchings, beheadings, etc. And of course most of the area hasn't really recovered since the civil war in a lot of ways (thanks GOP!). So my expectations were pretty low when I found myself... More

I really enjoy finding gems like this place in Huntsville. This small yet stylish restaurant is awesome for lunch or dinner dates without being expensive. I went for a lunch date with a friend and took my family there for a lunch before my graduation. The lighting in the restaurant keeps it feeling very comfortable and energizing during the day....
