The two of us enjoyed lunch at Commerce Kitchen. The Fried Green Tomato BLT sandwich was excellent: tasty tomatoes and lettuce, fine quality bacon, nice size. The side of salad was also very good and the ranch dressing was flavorful. The fish special (orange roughy) was also very good, nicely prepared, and well presented. The bourbon pecan pie dessert was... More

My husband and I visited Commerce Kitchen on Labor Day along with a guest of ours from Germany. The staff was excellent and the food was delicious! We loved it so much, we are returning this evening for our 3rd Year Wedding Anniversary dinner! Thank you Commerce Kitchen! Finally a great restaurant in our small downtown area of Huntsville!!!

I say that because although everything was very good, someone has to order the Shrimp and Grits. Worth the trip almost. Everything else looked and tasted great, honey fried chicken, and Georgia trout included.Good service, nice wine list and house cocktails and fair price.

Had the amazing spinach salad. It was awesome as was the atmosphere and service. Friendly staff, great food, great experience. Some advice, the dining space is small so avoid the peak lunch/dinner hours, Also parking is on the street so bring some quarters for the meter. Its all worth it.

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
