Wonderful Southern Food

Second time here on a business trip. We had the shrimp and grits both times and both times it was the highlight of the trip. The pimiento cheese with ritz crackers and bourbon pecan pie were perfect complements, along with the great service!

My wife and I went with another couple on a Friday night. We had reservations at 6:15 and were promptly seated. Tables in the dining area are close together and it is rather noisy. I would not call the atmosphere cozy and intimate, but more like a boisterous southern feast. We loved it. The food was excellent to the point... More

I love how one reviewer puts it "snooty pretentious eccellent food" lol. I enjoyed the food and the restaurant immensely. The shrimp and grits was excellent and my friend said it was the best friend chicken she had. Beats blue plate hands down if you got money to spend.

This is one of our favorite restaurants so we were disappointed when the fried chicken was changed on the menu that day! Fortunately enough people didn't like the change and they are going back to the wonderful dish they have served for a long time! The manager was lovely, grateful for the feedback and was anxious for us to enjoy... More

We visited on the night of the Twickenham Christmas Luminary and Home Tour. We arrived at opening, 4:00 pm, without a reservation. We asked to be seated in the main dining room which was empty except for one party in a booth. We were told they were booked up. I asked, "Really, you are fully booked at four o'clock?" The... More

This is an up-scale restaurant service well prepared food. The service was polite an professional (not warm and fuzzy). The atmosphere is clean and a bit formal with a slightly crowded arrangement of tables. I recommend getting there early or making a reservation to get a booth. The walls reflect sound quite well so do not plan on a quiet... More

Wife and I are in for the weekend and tried these folks for lunch. Great food and great service. Nice choice of beers on tap and wines by the glass.

I love Commerce Kitchen!!! I don't know who their chef is but the flavors are fantastic. I repeatedly go for the "Fried Green Tomato BLT"...delicious. I have also had the half pound cheeseburger which has an excellent beef flavor. And don't get me started on their deserts yum yum. Just love it.

I have dined at Commerce Kitchen several times. The food is "good", the service is fair to good. It's one of the better local options in Huntsville as far as food. As noted in other reviews, the bar/wait area is basically the corridor between the kitchen and the seating area. To go in and have a drink or wait, you... More
