We wanted to visit here as Boyce is opening a new restaurant in our home city of Birmingham. We love that section of town and how it's laid out (he has two other restaurants here) and we chose Commerce Kitchen on the recommendation of a friend. We enjoyed the started cornmeal crusted oysters... would have preferred a side of remoulade... More

This was the first time in a while that I visited a nice restaurant with a unique atmosphere that had reasonable prices and normal portion sizes. They were not the over size portions you get at a chain restaurant but they were enough to leave you satisfied. The menu choices were diverse and everything we had was unique in flavor... More

We had lunch here on a recent Friday. The place was not crowded and we were seated right away. From there the service became more lackadaisical. I kept wondering why it was taking so long for our server to get to us since the place was less than half full. We ordered wine, and had to ask to have it... More

My wife and I took a guest to Commerce Kitchen. The food was delicious, nice presentation, and the atmosphere was very nice. However, the guest's food was served a good ten minutes before the rest of the meal. We eventually told the guest to go ahead with her meal. It was awkward. The servers were otherwise satisfactory. Moreover, their was... More

So, where do you go in Huntsville for a unique dining experience. I can recommend the Commerce Kitchen. You have to realize that I am somewhat of a "grits" connoisseur. I like them with breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But not if they aren't correctly prepared for the meal they support. In this instance, I had the "Shrimp and Grits", and... More

This was our first trip to this restaurant and we were very pleased with the meal. My husband had the special which was lamb chops and truly enjoyed it. He even liked the side dish of cauliflower even though this is a vegetable that he usually avoids. Our son was with us and choose the cheeseburger which was nothing special... More

Brought the family in for a very nice meal. We were able to get only of the two tables at the bar without waiting. Waitstaff were very polite and personable. The crab cakes were very good ! We enjoyed the draft local craft beers. The bread pudding for desert was fine. However, the pecan pie was burnt on the bottom.... More

Service is top notch and the restaurant is nice and well laid out. A perfect setting for a date night or a small group of friends. Despite the small size it never got loud or to the point of not being able to carry conversations like similar sized restaurants. The drink selections are wonderful and well prepared. The food is...
