    We tried to get into the Husk in Charleston last year for my birthday, but they were totally booked during our entire stay. I was thrilled we were able to get a reservation at this Husk for this year's celebration! The food was amazing! Fresh, lots of local ingredients, and all prepared with an eye for detail and flavor! We shared the shrimp and grits for an appetizer and found it to be every bit as good as we've had in our favorite low country restaurants in Charleston. My fiancé had a pork dish he said was the best he's ever eaten and my red snapper was a thick, moist filet that would put many seafood restaurants to shame. The desserts were amazing, too! Highly recommend Husk, especially to foodies and those looking for a special meal.

    Husk, hands down, provided our best dining experience this year. Commendable service in a lovely setting. The menu, however, is out of this world. A terrific turn on farm-to-table, traditional Southern cuisine. Could not recommend this restaurant more.

    Food and beverages are of an extremely high standard, among the best in Nashville. one of several great restaurants for Southern-style haute cuisine in Nashville. Excellent service. Lots of meat but always something for vegetarians. However, if you don't eat pork or shellfish, pickins' are slim.

    I wouldn't call Husk inventive or imaginative with their cooking, but the food flavours are clean-tasting and fresh and delicious. The local ingredients are given a nice chance to shine on their own, with little adornment. My friend and I had the fried chicken skins (seriously addictive), the wreckfish (a lovely summer dish), the chicken with grilled peaches and bean succotash, and the chocolate pudding with bourbon caramel for dessert. All very lovely, in a nice atmosphere with quiet but friendly service. Overall I wasn't completely wowed or anything, but Husk does southern cooking really well.

    Our dinner at Husk was mostly delicious; two out of three entrees were excellent, although the third was not good at all. The catfish was bland and the accoutrements bitter and oddly textured. The pork chop and roasted chicken were fantastic, though, as were the desserts: Crema coffee cake, chess pie, and lemon blueberry shortbread. The service, however was negligent and inattentive. We spent most of the meal with empty water glasses, and our server was very difficult to reach. Although we didn't have a terrible experience, with so many incredible dining options in Nashville, I would recommend that diners try their luck elsewhere.

    Title says it all. The food was excellently prepared and delivered. The ambiance was first rate and the feel cultivated by the proprietors fits both the style of food served as well as the location. May be the best restaurant I've been to in Nashville, not that I've been to them all, but really just blown away.

    I truly think this is the first restaurant in Nashville that has reached the high level of food that typically you can only find in major cities like LA or NYC. Everything was simply perfect. Our server could not have been more attentive. This place is NOT to be missed. P.S. I also love the fact that everyone there seemed humble and happy to be there. Too many restaurants are coming to Nashville with staff that thinks we should be honored to simply walk in the door. OMG did I just say Holland House out loud?

    My wife and I make eating a hobby and have dined in some of the finest restaurants all over the world and Husk is one of our best finds in years. Certainly one of the best places in Nashville. Ironically, there is not a lot of hip about this place and it is outstanding. Unlike Rolf and Daughters that hipped to ceiling and difficult to get into--then what a let down--of all four dishes not one was any good and way too salty. If you have not been to Husk put it at the top of your to do list!

    Great food and service! The corncake and pimiento cheese appetizer was excellent, as well as the Wild Catfish and the Gullah Fish Head Stew with okra and Carolina Gold rice. The pork dish had a wonderful succotash with butter beans and fresh corn, and the corn tasted as if it had come right out of the garden! Then a great finish with the Buttermilk Chess pie garnished with grilled fresh peaches, peach sorbet, and fresh whipped cream.

    The taste wasn't that great and the entree pairing wasn't special. You can get local food that tastes better at better prices. It also wasn't well run, we had a long wait even though we had the earliest reservation that evening. The desert was good, but not enough to be worth going back.

    Four of us were vacationing in Nashville for the weekend. This city has a burgeoning food scene not to be missed. We spent our second night having dinner at HUSK. Lots of great reviews so we were psyched. Maybe too many expectations. The restaurant is in an old house which has lots of interesting rooms on many floors. The kitchen is open and fun to see. Their bread rolls were amazing and so was the butter.. We started with appetizers (jonnie cakes, chicken skins, tartar) Nice but not exceptional. Followed with the chicken, fish head stew, pork chop and steak. Again, nice but not exceptional. Service was very accommodating, professional and caring.

    The food was excellent. I have missed that quality since being there and will most definitely return. It was exceptional. The staff was attentive and offered great service. The dining area was very attractive. However, I was celebrating with a friend and we both had a little issue with hearing and two tables nearby were talkative people with loud laughter and the room's acoustics caused the sharp bursts of laughter to be a bit painful. The next time we may ask for another table location should that happen again. But overall the food experience and service were great!

    Seemingly simple food that is anything but. Wonderful locally sourced ingredients shine with impeccable execution. Wait staff was very knowledgable and friendly and made you feel at home. I loved how the old building and modern decor fit with the heirloom ingredients and modern preparations of the food. It's refreshing to enjoy an experience as well thought out as the one at Husk. I've had more 'exotic' meals, but none more well executed.

    We went this past Tuesday to have the famous Hot Fried Chicken. It was very good. It was accompanied by mashed potatoes and green beans. The beans needed a bit more flavor, but overall, lunch was great. It's a beautiful restaurant. The last time we went we sat at the bar for dinner and it was outstanding. It was nice to see at lunch, several tables had young children...so they are obviously kid friendly during the day.

    A big fan of Husk! This was my second time to eat there. My wife and I had lunch. At the waiter's suggestion my wife had the fried chicken. BAD Choice! It was too spicy to eat. We noticed several folks around us putting the chicken aside and ordering something else. The servers should give a warning about the heat! However, everything else was great! Will definitely go back. Southern food at its finest!

    Husk is a lovely restaurant with a menu that includes several traditional southern dishes with unique flavor infusions. I suggest ordering multiple appetizers and entrees that can be sampled by everyone at your table, as there are several dishes that everyone should taste - such as the Shrimp and Grits. It's perfect for a girls night out or a relaxing date night. It's a great addition to the Nashville restaurant scene!

    First visit to Husk-Nashville (dined at Charleston before) and it did not disappoint. The entrees were outstanding (pork feature and southern veggie plate). The drinks were very good, as well, and they have an extensive liquor list. The chicken wings we got as an appetizer were average but dinner made up for it. The wait staff is excellent and trained very well. They really know all about the cuisine and drinks they offer. It's fairly expensive so we reserve it for special occasions. I would be hesitant to bring children to eat here. The cuisine is very mature and the ambiance is calm and quite.

    I expected a little more for the price. Food was good but again for the reputation expected a little more. The burger was good but didn't have a wow factor. We went at lunch and for a drink, 1 dessert and 2 moderately priced meals spent close to $100. I don't mind spending if you feel like you got really good different food. Maybe I just expected more. Service was great !

    Enjoyed a good dinner. We were seated upstairs but if I went again I'd request downstairs which looked livelier and had nice view of the kitchen garden. My only disappointments were the dreary dried flowers on the table and the heavily chipped pottery that was used. It degraded the presentation of the creative food a bit for me. Overall though it was super.
