Last night we visited this downtown restaurant for the second time in over a month. We sat outside and it was just lovely. The service was great, as we had both our primary waitress, and plenty of server helpers running water, drinks and food. The prix fix menu was for restaurant week downtown. The appetizer was fried green tomatoes. They... More

My second visit to the CK within a year and found much the same menu, service, and ambiance. I arrived early for a 7:00p.m. reservation and was told I couldn't sit at the bar because those seats were reserved. I was shown to my table where 10 minutes passes before wait staff arrived. Menu items were familiar, with appetizers averaging... More

This is a delightful, small, crisply appointed restaurant on the downtown square that specializes in their fried chicken and something they call pimento cheese on a Ritz. But they also feature a BLT sandwich with fried green tomatoes. That's what I ordered and it was delicious! I understand that for dinner you need a reservation. I went late for lunch... More

Have taken out of town guests here and also eaten ourselves. I like that the menu changes and has limited choices. We have eaten the shrimp and grits and the fried chicken. The pimento cheese appetizer is a real treat. I service is impeccable. Simply wonderful meal but you do pay for it.

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
