Were in town for business and everyone kept recommending the Commerce Kitchen, so we decided to give it a try. It is in an old historic building downtown. The building is beautiful inside. We started with the fried green tomatoes. They were good, but we all agreed that there was too much hot sauce on them. You couldn't taste the... More

I have visited this location multiple times over the last 6 months, including my latest visit today. In all of my visits, Commerce Kitchen has met my needs across all the most important pieces (good food, reasonably priced, and a staff that is attentive but does not interrupt). The staff is superb....funny and engaging....but also quick to all our needs.... More

I am on a business trip in Huntsville and three of my colleagues and I went to this great restaurant last night. Everything was wonderful! One of my colleagues had her first oyster ever--brilliant cornmeal fried Gulf oysters here--and wonders why she waited so long. I had a beef filet with fried shrimp on gorgonzola mashed potatoes--brilliant. Everyone loved the... More

This is a great place for a sit-down lunch right on the square. They have classic Southern fare (including a fried green tomato BLT), and the service is friendly, too. I recommend it.

As always, the food was excellent. I went back to my favorite (shrimp & grits) and my wife had one of their burgers. We were there for lunch on Valentine's Day and it was a typical lunch crowd (nothing overwhelming). Unfortunately, the service was less than stellar. It was like only 2 servers for the entire place so we sat... More

I have heard great things about this place and decided to pop in for lunch today. I called my order in and when I arrived it still wasn't ready. I waited 30 min and it still wasn't ready. I asked the waitress what was wrong and she told me that they put my order in and then they served it... More

Visiting Huntsville for a short weekend trip, my boyfriend and I dined here on a Saturday night 2/11/2017. We had reservations for 7pm and were seated. This is an extremely small area with only about 20 tables for 2 or 4. If you have a larger party, I only saw one or two tables that could hold more than 4... More

I've eaten at Commerce kitchen a couple of times. My biggest complaint up to now has been that it's an open room 'live' room with a metal ceiling so it can be hard to carry on a conversation. My most recent visit last week was a party of 6 for a special birthday. We had reservations at 7:00, but out... More

Found this place on trip advisor, had great ratings, so I tried it. Opted for the coffee coated strip, it was great. I ordered it Med rare, but came out Med to Med well, but still good. Sides, potatoes and asparagus, were good as well. I opted to sit at the bar, it was small but nice. The bar stools... More
