About Cotton Row Restaurant
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.

Cotton Row Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant was cool and dark. The Southern seafood chowder was meaty and tasty. The creole crusted red snapper was adequate, but not wonderful, which it should have been at $32. I got an overall vibe of pretentiousness in the attitude of the staff. Overall it was a satisfactory but not an excellent experience.
First off our server was great. Downhill from there. The wine cellar must be almost empty. Requested 4 bottles on the wine list they didn't have. Finally ordered a wine double the price of the others and they had it.😙 Salad and starters were good. Then we get to the entree. Let me prefix this by saying I had informed them up front that I have celiac disease. I ordered the $42 NY Strip. First time our entrees came out during our starters. Server promptly sent it back!👏 The next time the entrees came out there was a big, breaded, fried onion sitting on top of the steak.😵 Remember I have celiac d. So those went back. Next steak was so salty to be inedible. So on the 4th try the kitchen delivered an edible steak. Last time going there for a long time. I don't know what has happen to Cotton Row, it "was" a fantastic place to dine!
First of all, the service was outstanding. Second, the duck. I have to say, it was cooked perfectly, not dried out or overlooked. Overall it was amazing. The strip was equally great, cooked to perfection. I can't say anything negative about our experience at Cotton Row. We will definitely be back.
Love this restaurant! Always accommodating to our requests. The filet is to die for!! And they don't just lay asparagus next to it - it's artfully presented and amazingly delicious. David goes above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect. We're lucky to have a restaurant like this in Huntsville.
The people were amazing! We were visiting Huntsville and I called ahead for seating. We had never been to the restaurant before. They were very accommodating and the food was excellent! We will be going back every time we are in the city. And we will be recommending this place to others. Thanks Stephanie and crew!
The staff was very helpful, the food was delicious, and the ambiance was fantastic! I took my wife there for our anniversary, and she LOVED it. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a quality meal, in a romantic setting. We dined outside, and there was live music. It was perfect.
I asked for a slice of lime in my San Pellegrino. After dropping the lime slice on the tablecloth the server picked it from the table and still placed it in my glass?! He justified this action so by remarking that the tablecloths were "sterile". Hmmm... Even for a ruffian like me that seemed out of character with an otherwise high-end dining experience. Presentation is everything. The five second rule isn't a good standard to observe when serving others.
