This was my 3rd visit to the restaurant and it hasn't disappointed me yet. The location, atmosphere and quality of the food was all outstanding. I will return when I'm in Huntsville.

Stopped here for lunch while on jury duty. Close to the courthouse and is a place I have wanted to try. Had the shrimp and grits, which were excellent. I like that they let you sweeten your own tea, so you can get it to the way you like it. Service was quick. Definitely will be back!

My family chose Commerce as our dinner celebration before going to see Dolly Parton last night. We loved the decor, the vibe and the friendliness of the wait staff. We dined early since we were going to a 7:30 show and the restaurant was already beginning to fill with others going to see Dolly as well. I chose the special... More

Several of my friends work in the law industry and we frequently find ourselves at this excellent lunch spot. The service is almost always on point and the food has never let me down. This is one of those places where you can branch out and try something new and feel assured that it will be a good choice.

What an unbelievable combination! The tang of the fried green tomato expertly prepared blended perfectly with the smoke flavor of the bacon. Simply the best BLT I've ever had.

Nice atmosphere. Restaurant was packed but it still felt like you were the only ones there. Perfect place for special occasions. The shrimp and grits are scrumptious and their cocktails are creations!. It was almost too beautiful to drink.

Parking is a little rough, even on a Thursday evening. We walked several very pleasant blocks to the restaurant. The entrance is through a side door which is next to their outdoor dining area on Franklin St. We felt it was too hot for outdoor dining even at 6:30pm and there was a full band playing a half a block...
