Nestled on the southwest corner of the Courthouse Square, the three-story brick building that houses Cotton Row Restaurant was built in 1821 along the cotton exchange.

A vision for comfort, elegance and modern American cuisine is how the story of Cotton Row Restaurant began. We are inspired by the enduring passion of the cotton traders who once worked in downtown Huntsville, and invite you to experience our southern hospitality.

We were promptly seated, however, our table was on the second floor in a converted apartment. We had to walk back out the front door into the pouring rain and around the building because there is no interior stairway to the second floor. Always request a main level table. Drink service was very slow. Food service was even slower. When my steak arrived I realized why it took so long. It was way over cooked. I had requested medium rare. I got well done plus. Sides and salads were mediocre. I have had excellent meals here in the past so I will give it another chance. However, there are at least two other quality options downtown that will gladly take my $200 for two of us.

This was a great place. However, I went because the menu online showed the dinner menu and I wanted the grilled scallops. Very disappointed they could not accommodate me. The food was good, just not enough of it. Only used the lunch menu.

Wonderful experience for day early Valentine's Day. Filet cooked to perfection. Scallops were awesome, not salty. Always a pleasure dining at Cotton Row.

Was seated directly behind host. Heard everything being discussed at host stand near door. Was difficult to have table conversation. Food and service were great.

Great food and atmosphere! One of the best steaks I've ever had. The drinks were very good, as was the service. All around, it was a wonderful time. I will definitely go back.
