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 excellent again. This is the third time I’ve eaten at Cotton Row in 5 years. All have been memorable experiences. Our waitress was outstanding - knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Food was outstanding. I’m a veggie, and they do a great job of improvising a tasty, interesting veggie dish. My colleague loves meat and was happily satisfied with his steak. We started with Manhattans: a classic made well. Then a nice affordable Oregon Pinot. Excellent. Kudos all round.

Went to Cotton Row for the first time for birthday brunch with hubby. Food was delicious. Wish there were a few more vegetarian options but overall a pleasant experience. We’ll definitely go back again.

The food and service at Cotton Row were absolutely outstanding. Our drinks were never close to being empty and the staff were very knowledgeable about the dishes. My main complaint is the seating design. I was led to believe this restaurant is one of the most romantic restaurants in Huntsville, so my fiance and I decided to eat here for Valentine's Day. We were seated right next to another couple, and could not hear our own conversation over the other couple talking. Not romantic, at all. I feel like seating could be a bit more spaced out to give a more romantic vibe. My other complaint is that the blackberries on the cheesecake made it inedible. I recommend straining the sauce.

EXCELLENT! We truly enjoyed the experience, ambience and dining. If you'd like a more intimate experience you might specially request to be seated downstairs but the upstairs was just fine. Only regret, not enough time to try everything on the menu!

We had a great Valentines dinner. Our reservations were for 7:30, we arrived early but were seated right away. We ordered a bottle of wine and it came quickly. The service and food were both great. I will visit again.

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.
