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.

The food was excellent, as usual. However, the service was a bit slow. After a very long wait, I had to summon the waiter and point out that it had been a very long time since I had ordered my salad. He agreed and said he would check to find out what the problem was. There was also a rather long wait to get the wine I had ordered and additional water. Another table seemed to be getting much the attention of the staff. I was a bit surprised, since the diners at that table did not appear to be the usual Cotton Row customers. Not meaning to be judgmental, but their dress and table manners were not what I’m accustomed to seeing at Cotton Row. It seemed that members of the staff might have known the diners, since they gathered around the table and chatted at length.

Overall very good, but we went on a night when winter weather was a possibility. Even though no weather materialized, the restaurant was nearly empty as a result. This was actually my only complaint, because with so few people in the dining room, I could hear every word of the conversation going on at the bar among the few other patrons (they were also being pretty loud).

The menu was diverse and impressive. Wait staff was very good.

I had gotten this reservation a week in advance and then called to ask for a booth downstairs in the wine cellar. It was my daughter’s 28th birthday and she was visiting us from Atlanta and had never been to Cotton Row. We wanted a good table. They gave the absolute worst table in the house. We were right beside a serve station and the staff would stand right beside our table. It was loud and hard to carry on a conversation. We had a great server and the food was phenomenal as always but it was so disappointing where we seated. I left disappointed with the experience.

Once we got our check, the asst. server asked for our coat room stubs. By the time we got our change back, the asst. server was standing there. Literally our coats in hand, implying it was time for us to go. I hadn’t realized I was in a fast food restaurant.

Great as always. Valet parking a plus on these cold evenings. Food tastes were extremely fascinating. Service amazing without camping out beside us. we had the swordfish and filet. The internet menus a little different than actual choices which caused to reconsider our pre-made choices. We've never had a bad experience or meal here.

Over crowded restaurant that had ok food, some dishes were good but others were over cooked. My biggest complaint was the table spacing, the tables were so close together and the music was so loud that you couldn’t have a conversation with the person across from you.
