Diner Reviews
  • "this was my third visit to Husk and perhaps my favorite- the johnny cakes are always a dependable starter that I love. the vegetable plate was fantastic, but my boyfriend's pork was the best. tonight was pork belly wrapped in shoulder and it was fall apart tender- so decadent and perfect. the only underwhelming things were our drinks. otherwise, the service, ambiance and most importantly, the food were perfection."

  • "Our party of 4 dined Saturday evening. The service was great, cocktails were fabulous and the food was outstanding! Most impressive dining experience we have had in 3 years here in Nashville. Definitely put Husk on your "must try" list!"

  • "Vegetable plate was beyond belief. My steak and eggs were very good though the steak was a bit under done for my taste. That was my only complaint."

  • "It's high-style and self-conscious, so the experience will be about the Food and not about you, the diner. We were there for a business lunch that took twice as long as we had scheduled into our business day. It's great that this urban pioneer has put this gorgeous old home into a modern day use - but the service needs some work."

  • "First time @ Nashville Husk. Had been to Charleston Husk 3 years ago. Both were excellent. Loved the jopen area downstairs. Food as usual was wonderful."

  • "We went to Husk in Nashville as we had such great experience in the Charleston branch. We were very disappointed. The ambience seems to be quite pretentious, especially the waiters with the beards. Such poor customer service, could hardly raise a smile and if the customer asks for something extra surely this should be happily accommodated but not in this place it seems an inconvenience! Overall food was fine, the rest forgettable. This branch will have to do better to be in the same league as the Charleston one!"

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed every part of the evening. Service was just right.....he seemed to be there when we needed him yet he didn't hover over us. We had a couple of serious foodies in our party and everyone enjoyed their dish. The johnny cakes w/ pimento cheese appetizer is outstanding. Two of us ordered the beef tenderloin, one the pork dish, and one the chicken. If you still have room for dessert try the buttermilk pie."

  • "Tartar was inventive. The BBQ ribs were tasty; described as "falling off the bone" which they definitely were not. Entrees were horrible: catfish was inedible and sent back. Smelled like fish gone bad, tough and chewy. Waiter did not check with our table until bringing desert menu, so no substitute entree was ordered. He said "catfish is a high risk entree and must not be to my taste." Imagine saying that to someone from Louisiana! What a schmuck! Clearly, he had used that line before...and was all too well practiced at it. The pork chop was served encased in fat, but not cooked enough to render. At least the catfish was taken off our bill. Don't waste your time or money on Husk. There are much better restaurants in Nashville."

  • "Good food & service. Hated where we were seated (downstairs section). It was excessively cold which ruined the experience. Maybe turn the air conditioning to a higher temp or not have it blow directly on guests."

  • "Amazing what Husk has done with this historic home !!! That being said , the food was mediocre at best, and service horrible. Was it worth 150.00 to come home hungry !! ?? I don't think so. But I certainly would go for lunch or a cocktail to soak up the ambience."
    Dined on 8/20/2014
  • "We enjoyed some interesting and delicious cocktails (virgin and alcoholic) and the appetizers were amazing! The balance of sweetness, tanginess and savory flavor was perfect on the corn and peppers with salsa verde and the fried pork ear sliders. I could eat those all night. The wait staff was great and my wife's vegetable platter was delicious. My only complaint was that my flat iron steak had quite a few sinewy bits."

  • "This was my first visit to Husk Nashville after eating at Husk Charleston twice. My experience at Husk Charleston was tremendous and I didn't expect this offshoot to live up to the original, but food-wise my expectations were exceeded. The spicy fried chicken was the best I've ever had. I also liked the setting and decor in a charming historic building. A member of my party had some very restrictive dietary needs, and our server and the manager were extremely accommodating. My only complaint was that it took and hour and 15 minutes between the time of our reservation and our food order being brought to our table. Not sure if that kind of delay is typical, but it led to some stress in terms of getting to our next appointment."

  • "I will admit I expected a lot out of Husk but, this far fell short. Ambiance: I liked the location and styling of the restaurant, although the acoustics make it really loud in the front room when there is a large group. Service: Very friendly, but the staff was not well trained to work with eachother. Our waitress ended up explaining literally every word on the menu to a table behind us and no one checked on us. We finished our first course, we drank all our water, we finished our cocktails. Nothing. Food: Pork was excellent, succotash was amazing. But, pork bun app had poor ratio of pork to bread (needs more pork or less bread). Moreover, the table bread was the exact same as the pork bun - and it was essentially a basic hawaiin roll."

  • "A little underwhelmed, to be honest. Food was good, but nothing exciting. Felt as if the Nashville location might be like the red-headed step-child of the Husk duo. Service was excellent and space was beautiful. Really respect Chef Brocks vision and pursuit."

  • "Took some higher-ups from out-of-town to Husk for lunch and they were very impressed! Service and atmosphere was excellent and all the food was delicious!"
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "We really enjoyed the appetizers most this trip to Husk. Our table of four each ordered a different app and they were all delicious. Instead, I opted for the Fried Chicken Leg Entrée and it was a tasty compromise."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "The food was delicious. There were lots of brunch options, and the ricotta blueberry pancake with lemon sauce was particularly good. However, the service was marginal at best. Our server was lackadaisical and had to be asked multiple times for coffee refills or to bring a straw. That is disappointing at a restaurant that is usually exceptional."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Husk was great! The food was excellent and staff was friendly and had great recommendations. The only thing I didn't like was that our table was very close to out neighbors so it was hard to have a conversation without them knowing our business. It also didn't help that they were nosey! Great place to eat!!!"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Excellent food with interesting combinations that are definitely worth trusting the chef's pallet. The flavors were layered beautifully, like a fine wine. This experience was everything I expected from my friend's experiences, and more!"

  • "this time we were seated in a quieter room. However, the bar area is very noisy, fun but noisy."

  • "As a Nashville Native it is always nice to try the newer restaurants. My husband, 2 boys (13&11), and I went here last Friday for a birthday dinner out. The food was fantastic! I understand why it is one of the top restaurants in the country. The kids loved it. My oldest had the Wagyu Beef and the rest of us shared a ribeye with a vegetable plate. All very good minus the okra. I love okra to the point that I eat it raw but the peanut purée with it didn't go. The succotash I could have eaten my weight in. The mashed potatoes were the best I have ever eaten. Sorry mom. It was a great place. My only complaint was the noise level was way too high for a nice restaurant. We had to raise our voice to hear across the table at times."

  • "One of the best meals we have had this year. The vegetable platter was killer."

  • "Great food with a great atmosphere! The bone in Ribeye is to die for. There are some great restaurants in Nashville. This one should be on the top of your list."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Outrageously delectable flavors and gorgeous presentation. The chess pie was possibly the best dessert I've ever experienced. I was a little disappointed in the tomato sandwich appetizer. While flavorful, I felt ripped off by the size and price. However, the rest of the meal was outstanding and I will definitely go back!"
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Food was very good - excellent and a very unique dining experience. Noise level was a bit louder than we would have preferred due to conversations naturally re-bounding off the walls. One of our entrées, 1 out of 3 was slightly overcooked. Menu was unique and enjoyable and I would definitely eat there again despite the above minimal negative comments. Wait staff was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, helpful but most importantly professional."

  • "We dined at Husk while attending a conference in Nashville. There were four of us, all from Chicago, and we had high expectations! We all enjoyed every item we ordered. The food was excellent and our server very knowledgable. Every dish had its own uniique take on a standard dish. The shrimp and grits appetizer as well as the pork entree were the stars! If we are back in Nashville we will absolutely visit again!"

  • "We were in town for a conference and went here on a free night to celebrate a co-worker's birthday! My boss called a few days ahead to order a bottle of champagne for the table to my reservation and she said it was so easy to do! Our menu's said "Happy Birthday!" at the top! The food is superb, such amazing flavors I've never tasted before! Would definitely recommend it!"

    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "I was in town for a conference and Husk was highly recommended. I was not at all disappointed! The food was very good however it is overall somewhat pricey. The only Cabernet by the glass was $20. In addition, they had 42 - 48 ounce bone-in ribeye special that my wife and I split. They did not offer the price and I did not ask so I cannot blame them entirely for the surprise (read shock) when I got the bill. With it being in an old home with wood floors and high ceilings the ambiance was nice, however with all the tables filled that evening it was a little on the noisy side. I would go back, but would certainly ask the price of any special if it was not offered!"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Our friends enjoyed Husk. Lots of fresh ingredients on the menu. Waitress was wonderful explaining all the ingredients in each entree. Drinks were unusual and very good. I found desserts nothing special. It would have been nice to have a peach pie or some other fresh fruit item on the menu. Perhaps some interesting sorbet trio?"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "The food at Husk was supreme- top of the line everything, from first course to desert. It was heavily raining the night we dined, and the window next to our table started leaking profusely. After numerous waiters and the manager pushed behind our seats to throw down tacky towels to stop the leak, no one apologized, no one offered to move our table, and nothing so small as a desert was given. When 2 people spend $250 at your restaurant, a little respect should be shown. Other than that, the experience was great and I would recommend Husk to visitors."

  • "The clear highlight from Husk on our brunch outing was the menu and the food. Everything we ordered was beyond delicious. The deviled eggs, pimento cheese, biscuits & gravy, shrimp'n'grits, chess pie. All absolutely divine. Our server seemed a little out-of-place and somewhat frazzled at times, but not worth seriously complaining about. The one thing that I thought was odd was that throughout our whole meal we could hear the expo in the kitchen calling for "RUNNERS." In an establishment such as this, and a beautiful one at that, I was surprised to hear so much yelling from staff in the kitchen. It was disrupting at times, but the food and atmosphere far outweighed that."

  • "Have been to Charleston location several times...never to Nashville. Had brunch/lunch there...meals and service were outstanding. In Nashville 2-4 times per year, certainly will be a stop every time."
