Diner Reviews
  • "Husk is perfection. From the moment you enter the door to the moment you leave, it's a calming experience thanks to the spectacular team at Husk. These folks miss nothing! Start with a cocktail, original, unique drinks that follow Chef's philosphy "if it isn't from the South, it's not coming in the door." The shrimp and grits is a must have starter, a unique version of a Southern favorite. I had a tilefish entree and while the fish was delicious, it was the squash they served on the side that just blew me away. I cannot explain what they did to it but it was heaven in my mouth. Save room for dessert, the final touch of Southern charm. I've already sent a couple friends who were in town and their experience mirrored my own. Simply a must!"

  • "I have heard great things about the Husk restaurants; however, my experience was quite disappointing. I had a beef short rib small plate and trout as my main entree. They were both beautifully displayed, but the flavors could have been better. Our table split two desserts, a lemon chess pie and a cornmeal tres leches. They were both heavy and, again, could have had more flavor. "

  • "Somehow in this newly-crowned hippest town in America, it has become a "thing" for the waiters at the newest, hippest restaurants to not only provide menus but to describe every item in excruciating detail, down to the provenance of the butter. Enough. I can read. Just tell me the specials and get out of the way. It was a business lunch, not a cooking class, and I don't care if your heirloom farrow has been gently smoked for a week."

  • "Husk was a great find for us. Our Nashville visit was terrific and a highlight was this place. Service was top notch from the moment you walk in the door. Servers were all very attentive, even if it is not their table. I wish I could remember our server's name because she was fantastic. (Taller blonde) cocktail menu was excellent! Yum! The food was the best that we had in Nashville. It was recommended by a local and not full of tourists like some of the spots we had gone to. This was a good sign from the start. Each dish was meticulously described by our server. Mouth watering descriptives did not disappoint. Presentations were beautiful and food melted in your mouth."

  • "This was the first time I dined at Husk-Nashville, but I have dined at Husk-Charleston and found them both to be a memorable experience. I loved the atmosphere of Husk-Nashville better and the food was to die for at both locations. I would recommend to anyone that asks!"

  • "Fantastic drink menu, extremely well-versed wait staff, incredible seasonal, local fare, beautiful restaurant. We'd highly recommend. Try the veggie platter as an accompaniment to any entree. It's big enough to share and well worth it. I'll be dreaming of the cabbage, the broccoli and the grits with roasted red peppers for ages."

  • "The menu represents an innovative take on traditional southern dishes. We started with the pimento cheese and corn cakes then had both the pork and catfish dishes. All three were delicious. The desserts were also good but, not as outstanding, in my opinion. It wasn't an inexpensive meal but, it was much better than average in terms of taste and presentation."

  • "My spouse and I are still talking about our meal three days later. The food was fresh and cooked exactly as ordered. It was just an outstanding night."

  • "The restaurant is in a renovated historic home. They did a beautiful job keeping the character of the old while bringing the building into the new. The service at the bar while we waited for our table was mixed. One bartender was very friendly while the one that made our drinks did not even look at us. The food was very good but nothing so outstanding. The beef cheek started was excellent and should be tried. The shrimp and grits starter was dissapointing, not as good as the one I make back home in New York."

  • "Went to Husk Nashville after having enjoyed the great food at Husk Charleston and was not disappointed. The service was outstanding and the food delicious. I particularly loved the deviled eggs and the fresh warm bread served. The Chess Pie was so tasty and the Apple tartlet to die for. Great food, great service. I would highly recommend. Can't wait to go back and try different dishes."

  • "Nashville friends recommended Husk and we are so glad they did. The building is historic and I noticed the Heart of Pine floors. Our server was very attentive and saw to our every need. She recommended the Shrimp and Grits which was fabulous. We also had the Flatiron Steak and the Chicken. Everything was cooked perfectly and was delicious. I strongly recommend this restaurant!"

  • "I was really disappointed with my main course. The beef was not tender at all and very chewy. I think the entree was around $18 which is a lot to pay for a below average lunch main course. Desert was good, but most of the lunch was a letdown. Past dinners were superb, but I was unimpressed with lunch."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our experience, servers were all wonderful and on top of making out experience the best! I have an allergy to pork and any pork products-- I greatly appreciate the care taken to steer me away from it. Our server was outstanding and we commented several times on the fluidity of the entire staff. Keep up the hard work-- it truly shows!! Thanks for making our engagement celebration meal special!!"

  • "Had a wonderful time dining with my sisters at Husk in Nashville this past weekend. We were visiting from New York City so it's not every day we get to enjoy a meal in a beautiful Southern house! Our waiter was impressively familiar with the menu - from the variety of cocktails they offered to how everything was locally sourced and prepared. When deciding on a drink, I informed the waiter I do not enjoy sweet drinks and he recommended the "Fine and Dandy" and it was delicious! The presentation and the taste were exceptional, definitely instagram worthy =) This restaurant represented class all the way and I would love to try their brunch menu next time I'm in town, or perhaps check out their Charleston location. Great job all around!"

  • "Service was excellent. The waiter knew so much about the food and drinks. It was impressive because it's obvious how much everyone at Husk cares about the food and the experience of the diners. The smoked trout deviled eggs were beautiful and delicious, I loved the parker house rolls, the ribs were great and I loved the sauce even though I prefer a dry rib, and by the time I got my vegetable plate, I could barely eat any of it. I am really looking forward to returning for dinner. Hearing Drive-By Truckers overhead as we were seated was a major bonus. We're on the same page, Sean Brock!"

  • "Husk was an amazing dining experience. I took my parents here for their first dinner in Nashville, and it was so good that we went back for lunch a few days later. I highly recommend this restaurant because every single dish that we ordered was absolutely delicious. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and poetically described each dish and why the chef created it. I will definitely be going back to Husk every chance I get!"

  • "The view of Nashville from Rutledge Hill is quite impressive and the antebellum home that is HUSK is well maintained. The downstairs bar is small and could not handle a large crowd. The bar staff seemed knowledgeable and as we were just there for a single drink while waiting for our table the bar area worked fine. Supper was well received by members of our party with each sampling a different entree from the menu. The chocolate desert and ice cream were a perfect way to end a very enjoyable meal."

  • "This visit to Husk for lunch was my first chance to eat in a dining room. I usually eat at Husk in the evenings and sit at the bar because it is so hard to get evening reservations. But the food and the cocktails are so wonderful and so unique that I will sit wherever I can just to be there!"

  • "We went there on a Tuesday specifically to get the fried chicken, which is Chef Brock's take on Nashville Hot Chicken. We did not leave disappointed, as the chicken was crunchy with just the right amount of heat. The serving was 3 generous pieces (wing, leg and thigh) and came with roasted potatoes and sautéed cabbage. What a deal for $11!!! We also loved the complementary Parker House rolls with honey butter. They were just the thing to balance the heat from the chicken. Mrs. Ned had the corned beef sandwich and allowed me a bite. It was tender and succulent. I can't wait to try the pork chop on the Thursday lunch menu."

  • "We're big fans of Husk in Charleston and couldn't wait to try Husk Nashville. We decided to go for lunch like we often enjoy in Charleston and loved it. It's hard to decide what to order, but whatever they feature on the vegetable plate is highly recommended...so is the cheeseburger! We can't wait to get back for dinner sometime!"

The pigs ears were easily the best I've had, and the rice cakes with pimento cheese were impeccable. Make sure to arrive with a hearty appetite too. The portions are huge compared to most restaurants like it."

  • "We tried Husk's brunch for first time last week and it was spectacular. With advanced notice, they had menus printed with Happy Birthday Ron for my brother-in-law's birthday celebration along with a complimentary cava starter. All four food plates were terrific with the pork belly Monte Cristo a crowd favorite and the french toast, shrimp and grits and veggie plate all worthy of repeating on a future visit. Service was outstanding as it has been on every Husk visit. The rolls are yummy and drink list large enough to please all. Husk is now my favorite spot in downtown Nashville."
