About Cotton Row Restaurant
Huntsville, AL 35801
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.

This was our 4th visit to Cotton Row over the last few years. We were seated in a quiet, romantic section of the restaurant I previously didn't know existed. The food was absolutely delicious as always, and the service was top notch. It was everything we've come to love about Cotton Row.

Went for New Years Eve dinner. It appears the restaurant was more concerned about jamming people in than the quality of the experience. The website stated the chef would be creating some special dishes for the night. The one and only special dish was a $50 steak. Service was slow and food was average.

I would not recommend this restaurant. My wife got extremely sick in early December. She missed a lot of work the week after Christmas and went to a doctor twice following Christmas. Regretfully, we called over 30 hours in advance to attempt to cancel our reservation due to documented medical issues but were told we had to pay $50.00 to cancel. Granted, this was a New year's eve reservation. Rather than pay a penalty of $50 I sent my daughter and her fiance in our place and paid for their dinner. They said the restaurant was noisy and that Longhorns cooked better steaks. We are locals and looking for a new restaurant to frequent and this would have been our first visit to the Cotton Row. We will however, never go back.

excellent food choices, good insight and advice from the waiter. meal was perfectly prepared and presentation was wonderful. fickle weather for this time of year made for a little warmer interior, but the staff corrected the problem when asked about it. overall great dining experience.

Where do I begin -- After arranging reservations through Open Table we contacted the restaurant directly to insure they could accommodate a large group of ten for a family Xmas Eve dinner. We originally requested a private room, however, unsure whether my elderly parents could negotiate the stairs or steps required to enter their private dining spaces, we were told by the restaurant to confirm our number the day before we arrived and they could pre-arrange banquette seating near the back of the restaurant. We arrived 3 minutes before our reservation time and the hostess looked like we had never talked before.... literally "a deer in the headlights". No one was ready and they acted like we were a complete inconvenience for them to arrange seating they had already confirmed and promised the same day.
It took 15 min to start taking our drink orders when our lead waiter finally showed up to begin our meal service. It was actually another 15 to 20 minutes before our drink orders showed up. Furthermore, they only had just taken our main course orders, now over 30 minutes into our seating. Needless to say, we were well over an hour and a half before our main courses showed. Service and coordination with the kitchen was strained to say the least.

First few times I visited, I was so impressed. Reservations were made in my special friend's name. He lives in Arab. I made this last reservation in my name and I am from Knoxville. We had the worse table in the restaurant. In the back near the rest rooms. Noisy. Not as pleasant experience.

I had received a gift card and treated three of my friends for a birthday luncheon. The food and service were great. The sun was beating down on us and needed sunglasses, but we refrained. As we were leaving, they lowered the outside canopy to deter the sun. When I gave the waiter the gift card he returned and said that the gratuity couldn't be paid with the gift card. I wish I would have known that prior and I would have been prepared. I can't find where it says that anywhere. It was a little embarrassing as I was trying to gather adequate cash for a tip.

Really a bad experience. For some back ground, I chose to have my Corp Christmas event last year at Cotton Row ( they misspelled my company name on the menu cards and I did not complain) and have eaten there 20+ times and mostly had a good experience. Tonight was different. The food was sub par and the service was sub par and the whole experience was inadequate. I had a guest in from out of town that is moving here, as I often do, and was embarrassed to present Cotton Row as the best restaurant in Huntsville .

Sat at table for close to 10 minutes after being seated before the server came by to even offer drinks. Ordered steak medium and it came out rare leaning toward raw. Disappointed in the overall experience especially with the prices charged.

Great meal! The good was cooked to perfection. Our only disappointment was the very slow service. It took a good 10 minutes before someone actually approached our table. It took over 20 minutes to get our drinks! Other than that one glitch, the night was enjoyable.
