a great southern dining experienceI am a food lover and I loved this place. The menu was an inventive take on southern cooking with innovative ingredients all locally sourced. I highly recommend dinner here and if the weather is good, request a table on the upper porch.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenomenal Restaurant!Best value meal I have had anywhere in the US!
I could have paid twice the amount and still been delighted with the experience.
Shrimp and Grits were to die for!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMeets expectationsSeated on time, great service and the food matched the rave reviews that we had read. Food-to-table freshness with seasonal specialties (try finding ramps in California where we live). Memorable dining experience all around. Couldn't recommend Husk more highly.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat anniversary dinnerMy wife and I celebrated our 1st anniversary with a dinner at Husk. The food was amazing, the server was incredibly knowledgeable, and the overall dining experience was great. We started with the ham plate and the pig ear lettuce wraps - both were delicious. My wife got the chicken with rizzoto and I ordered an off-menu special they had that night, a bone-in ribeye over a potato "salad" - both entrees were cooked wonderfully and presented extremely well. We also got two sides - the cask iron skillet cornbread and the grits - these two were great.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat mealI'd anticipated this meal for some time, having wanted to make it down to charleston expressly to go to husk. It lived up to expectations. Great takes on a southern base. Very fresh. Skilled subtleties in all of our dishes. The "signature" pig ear wraps were phenomenal. A great array of non-alcoholic drinks with lots of thought into their composition. Some nice craft hard-ciders on hand as well. Fantastic service. Overall great experience and can't wait to make it back.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMamazingIt was Bon appetite's restaurant of the year. What else can you say? Either arrive early or stay late, their bar is a must.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a 1:45 pm lunch reservationWe had a 1:45 pm lunch reservation and were taken in right on time. The ambience is great and the service and food were outstanding. Definitely try the Lemon Blackberry Trifle for dessert!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOh my apps...Fantastic time at Husk this past Saturday. My girlfriend and I enjoyed a wine on the porch while waiting for our table, taking in the fine Charleston night. Our server was fantastic; attentive and knowledgeable. I'd love to tell you about the entree; but before we could approach that together we put down 5 appetizers. We just couldn't get enough. 5 appetizers, two entrees (pork and pheasant), three bourbons and a glass of wine for under $200 at a restaurant that fine? Unheard of. Cannot wait for my next trip.
On a side note: I really wanted to see the kitchen; like a kid full of excitement. I was worried I'd be ushered away but the manager said "It's an open kitchen for a reason". Pure class.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it. Great food- so freshLoved it. Great food- so fresh and unique. Our service was excellent. One of our favorites in Charleston5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb experienceFood was great, and interesting, excellent wine list and outstanding service. A couple of our party were delayed in arriving but the wait staff handled this without a problem, and made us all feel welcome. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. It did get rather noisy at times, but this seems to be the rule these days.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBeyond my expectations!Phenomenal overall! Service fabulous! Dinner out of this world! Everything made in house. Southern ham selections were mouth watering porky goodness! Husband's pheasant so tender it cut with a fork. Grits were smoky cheesy delicious! Coctail and wine selections expertly paired! After dinner went next door to the coolest bar I have ever been inside. Hams were curing hanging from the ceiling beams! Wow Wow Wow! Can't say enough!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing dining experienceThis restaurant definitely lived up to our expectations. Had a wonderful dinner including drinks and dessert that were also outstanding. Sitting on the porch really added to the evening, beautiful setting. The service was also great.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMCats to the Rescue!The most delicious catfish prepared by a master. My entire dining experience was delicious from the pimento spread with pickled tomato on the sesame flatbread to the strawberry rhubarb tart. A nice wine selection perfectly paired with the meal. Service was great!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect dayMy daughter and I had lunch outside. We had the pimento cheese appetizer with pickled green tomatoes, fried catfish BLT, and arugula with buttermilk dressing. Everything was so fresh and and tasty! This was my third time at Husk for lunch. Now, I want to try dinner there!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHusk lived up to it's expectationsHusk lived up to it's expectations - it was WONDERFUL.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved HuskVery foodie resturant...
Great cornbread great cheesy Grits
Wife and I shared the cheese burger and Catfish BLT. We both loved each but if we could do it again we would get two Catfish BLTS and maybe still one burger! The Catfish BLT is a simply wonderful sandwich and is a must for lunch in between walking around Charleston.
For sweets get both the Arnold Palmer and the donuts. The donuts are flaky airy goodness...one of the best light sweet snacks I have had. the Arnold palmer is a great lemon pouncake and tea flavored ice cream. So great...so unique. You must try it.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience; amazingGreat experience; amazing service; unique and impressive wine list. The food was awesome too.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly recommendFood was excellent as was the service. Stands up to many of the best for this picky New Yorker.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMone of the best in Charlestonhusk combines every aspect of great dining. Food, service, atmosphere are all fantastic5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDine on the porchThere was an article on epicurious.com that named this as a must eat place in Charleston so we thought we'd give it a try. We had a nice late lunch on the porch (made for a relaxing atmosphere). The cocktails were unique and the food was very good. Based on the article, we tried the Shrimp and Grits which were served with an egg on top (different than anywhere else I've had them) and the cheeseburger was flavorful. The service was great. As I said, very good, but for the money there are other places in Charlston that wowed us.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayWent for Mother's Day, could not have picked a better place, ate upstairs on the outside porch. We will be trying Husk for dinner soon. Outstanding food5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Food, Fabulous ServiceThe food was absolutely amazing. We went for mother's day brunch and it was wonderful! My father had the pigs ear app and it was one of the best dishes i have ever tried. I had the biscuits with gravy app and the Monte Carlo dish for my meal. Both were to die for and were VERY filling. My mom ordered the pancakes which were HUGE and delish! The whole experience was great, with a wonderful waiter. We will definitely be coming back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic lunchI came in with high expectations based on fantastic reviews - and each one of my expectations was exceeded!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAwaiting Nashville openingDiverse and interesting menu. We had the sampling of hams appetizer and while it was very good, the addition of some different condiments paired with each type of ham would be welcome. I had their pheasant and it was superb, my wife shared the 22oz ribeye with another in our party and found it not to be as tender as it should be in a restaurant like Husk. Exceptional service from all providers and they were very knowledgeable. Not the best meal we had in Charleston, but we would return.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMCharleston GemBook in advance. There's a reason why Husk is so hot! Luncheon options were great and all uniquely southern. Share all the small plates, you can't go wrong. Server was knowledgeable with great recommendations. Looking forward to a return visit for dinner and the second Husk in Nashville.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely dinnerHad a really lovely dinner here. Particularly good if you are interested in what The South particularly has to offer. Service was friendly and very helpful with the menu.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMy third visitVery good and last weeks meal for our part of four was very good. Very limited desert list. I suspect they want you to order after dinner drink?5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMKinda of disappointed afterKinda of disappointed after reading so many stellar reviews. For us, the food was good, but not outstanding. Ambience and service was very good, though. Don't go with high expectations!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Lunch!We were traveling to Charleston for a couple of days and looking for places to eat and I found Husk. They had me hooked at pig ear wraps. The hubby was suspect, but one he tasted them, he was a convert. His shrimp and grits were heavenly. The chocolate mint parfait, devine. Husk is a must to anyone who is staying in Charleston.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBest food in Charleston -Best food in Charleston - and that is saying quite a lot. We swooned over the pain perdu with crispy pigs ears. We make sure to get to Husk every time we come to Charelston.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest CHS restaurant of 2013 tripThis was the only "oldie but goodie" that we chose to repeat and we were not disappointed in the least. Menu changes with such frequency that it would be pointless to review individual dishes. We opted for four starters and only one main (plenty for 2), items came out perfectly. Superb service, fabulous décor....nuff said!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodHad the sirloin with cornbread, asparagus and grouper. All were amazing and tasty.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingThe food and service was incredible. Husk did not live down to my expectations. I would recommend this to anyone!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeDelicious meal - had the soft shell crab and ribs which are both starters, but the ribs are pretty big! The place is beautiful and service very good. We were recommended a red wine that I really didn't like, but that's not really her fault! And as it was a Friday night the noise level on the second floor was really very high, be warned! Would definitely go back.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant place, not worth the hypeI went with high expectations. The place is fun and the service excellent. The food was good but not outstanding.. The pig's ears were interesting but too salty. The chicken skin good but only if shared. The onion soup delicious but very rich and the vaunted cornbread only delicious if rewarmed and very hot.
Best meal I had in Charleston was Martha Lou's kitchen. Truly outstanding soul food. Best collards I have ever tasted.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHusk is up there with the best!We're from the San Francisco Bay Area, no slouch food-wise.
Our recent lunch at Husk has to rank up there with the best Foodie restaurants in the Bay.
The concept, food, presentation and service are all lovingly delivered.
We got a kick out of knowing that everything comes from sources south of the Mason-Dixon line.
We started with the Whiskey flight and loved the Willet Rye in particular.
I had the Shrimp n' Grits, and it was the best I've ever had. Wife had the housemade burger. Again, simply an awesome assembly of meat, bun and extras.
It does Southern proud!.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLived up to my expectations!I have wanted to eat at Husk for several years now after reading about it in my Garden & Gun. I have very high expectations and it lived up to them. The food was wonderful and service was outstanding. We had a drink at the bar at Husk and it was wonderful as well. I am excited that they are opening a Husk in Nashville since it is closer to home. I think all the hype for Husk is worth it!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperbWe had heard great things about Husk and were not disappointed
The soft shell crab was delicious and the ribs to die for. Charming staff too. It's along way to travel for a meal- Living in the Uk - but I'd recommend it if you're going to be there.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMgood, but priceyWe're glad that we tried Husk for lunch. It's very good, but quite pricey.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHusk lived up to its reputation.This was a destination restaurant for us, and well worth the effort. Fresh interpretations of classics were exciting.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AM#1 in CharlstonBest place we ate at, food was perfect price was even better. Service I would hold against any other restaurant I have ever been.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMlives up to the (good) hypeI have been wanting to go to Husk since it opened. Recently have heard that it is getting touristy and not as good since Sean Brock is hardly ever there any more. But my out of town friends have heard of it so we went anyway. Whomever is bad-mouthing it doesn't know good restaurants or else it is just more civilized at lunchtime. The loud raves from our table were for the soft-shell crab BLTs. The onion bisque was very good and the pimento crostini was a good vegetarian option since they held the country ham. I loved the whole experience. Our waitress was helpful, informative and so thoughtful. Don't hesitate to try it no matter what you've heard. It is good value for the money. One negative - some of the cocktails not so hot.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBest shrimp & grits in allBest shrimp & grits in all of CHS. Very good cocktail list. Nice service and good atmosphere.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI had to schedule my reservationI had to schedule my reservation for brunch a month in advance, and I worried that the restaurant might not be worth all the hype. I was delighted to learn that that the restaurant lived up to all of the praise. The food was fantastic! Everything on the menu sounded interesting. Our meals were perfectly prepared. Can't wait to go back for dinner and try their bourbon pairings. My only critique is that the kitchen and waitstaff seemed slow.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFun lunch with friends!Had lunch with friends visiting from out of town Was proud to have chosen HUSK - they loved it - especially the cornbread in a skillet. Also appreciates the large wooden salad bowls. All food was exceptional! Fun place for quick lunch!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best food I have everThe best food I have ever had. Everything was spectacular, from the bread/butter to the fried chicken skins to the wagyu beef and cornbread. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, food presentation,Excellent food, food presentation, decor, bar, service and wine. Way too NOISY; unable to hear conversation.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLow country creative food...You'reLow country creative food...You're probably not going to see these combinations on other menus in Charleston. The service was excellent and the atmosphere beautiful. A trip to their bar is a must as well...handcrafted cocktails and unique appetizers.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit toThis was our first visit to husk and absolutely loved it!! We will most certainly be back. It was so good..... We would come back to charleston just to go to husk. Everything was fresh and very tasteful without being too salty or rich. Excellent meal!!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThere is so much hype withThere is so much hype with the awards and magazine articles - and the advance reservations required - sorry to say the food was just OK. The service was superior - above any others. I would recommend for the experience - we would take others but would not return just on our own. Best item we ordered was the smoked chicken wings - we would order again.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
