Dined at the Nashville location in a historic house and sat on the back patio for a lovely view of the setting sun. Pisco cocktail was delicious. As I couldn't make up my mind, I chose the veggie sampler. Served on a pottery plates and dishes, each and every dish was unique, delicious and complex. I tried the shrimp and grits based on the reco of the server and it was, indeed, heavenly. Shrimp was grilled and seasoned, grits had a lot of texture plus the creamy cheesiness made it sublime. For dessert we picked the coconut frozen popcicle which had toasted coconut and shaved lime on top for an out-of this world treat. I can't wait for a chance to return.

I most appreciated the effort that Adam made to welcome us there along with all of his help to me personally with my no gluten/no dairy diet. I was able to enjoy an entree and side items right along with the rest of my party.

It was a great Sunday evening to sit outside and enjoy the weather and watch the sun set over the Nashville skyline.

Well done!

I brought my executive leadership team here because we were in town for a convention. The cocktails are all well done, and have a true Southern flair. For a starter, be sure to get the Pokeweed cakes (a local, spinach-like green grown in/around Nashville) and the shrimp and grits, which were perfectly cooked and full of southern flavor.

I had the catfish with broccoli puree and broccoli salad (think: YUM!); the catfish was grilled to perfection. My team had the beef fillet and they raved about it. I had a bite and the meat was tender and flavorful.

We ordered the corned bread, which is made in house and includes their own cured ham. Unfortunately, the corn bread (though full of good flavor), was dry.

The desserts were great, we ordered three and shared them all. The brown butter ice cream...get it. Nuff said there. The beet cake, which is a play on red velvet cake was amazing, however I thought there was too much anise in the icing...

The venue is an old mansion, once a governor's house we were told. We sat in the very front room, which really doesn't have a view. So, ask to be sat downstairs where it looks overs some gardens. You can expect amazing service and to be greeted with several, "Welcome, Ya'lls!" which is Southern hospitality at its best.

This will definitely be on my list next time I'm in Nashville. It's also a short walk to Broadway afterwards.

Our dinners delicious, shared the Daufuskie crab app...that island is close to Bluffton SC where we live. Entrees Denver steak for me, cut I'd never heard of, chicken for husband...both superb. Desserts I don't recall other than mine had a very hard piece of something as part of the dessert...I thought I might break a tooth on whatever that was fortunately didn't. Wine prices high, soaring ! But what I chose was great. Our reservation was NOT for 5p according to the 2 confirmations I received from OpenTable that I made thru the O T website, don't know where the 5p came from. Had 2 messages on cell phone I hardly use, each for a different time. I would think when 2 reservations are seen for same date, red flag would be raised but not. Got to HUSK & was told 5p reservation & we didn't show, we were there as supposed to be for 6:15p somehow getting thru the heavy traffic for the Predators game. Nice nite, like Husk in Charleston for lunch, day & shopping trip for us from Bluffton SC. Looking forward to the Savannah Husk opening, 1/2 hr drive.

Our first time at Husk suggested by friends. We went at lunch, with a reservation which was suggested. Lovely home that housed a friendly, comfortably elegant setting for the delicious meal. The staff was courteous, attentive but not hovering, and gave us descriptions of menu items. The shrimp and grits with the egg was a perfectly sized lunch item; the fried bologna sandwich a tasty throwback from childhood. Looking forward to a return visit.

We loved place. It reminded us of their restaurant I Charleston. The menu was just what we had hoped for as we like to share and we love splitting appetizers and then jumping to dessert. Their wine list was extensive and we found a really nice red that fit our budget. We shared the charcuterie board and the shrimp and grits. Delish! The dessert was a star, OMG, a deconstructed PB&J. The peanut butter was amazing peanut butter dust. We asked the secret and they got us the answer, tapioca. Wow! It was a fun meal, the staff was terrific. Our server. Eli, was excellent. This is a must place if you are visiting Nashville, make your reservations before you leave home, it is a hopping spot.

I was really disappointed in the food. I had just visited Husk in Charleston and loved it. My expectations when visiting a restaurant run by the same people when the name is the same is that menu items named the same will be similar. The shrimp and grits were totally different and there was NO warning on the menu. It's also bad that a table of 4 people, used to eating at nice places, look at the menu and don't see a main course that looks good. Everything was just enough odd that it just wasn't a good experience. Service and ambience are great so I hope they really work on the menu. Peas do not belong with shrimp and grits...

Have eaten here many times for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it. But lunch was a disappointment. Cheeseburgers and fried pimento cheese sandwiches? Really? Seems like you could reach a little higher with the menu standard.

Wife got Pimento Cheese and was very pleased. I got the Fried Bologna and was completely disappointed. Bologna was over cooked, dry and had no flavor. Thick uncooked red onion was on the sandwich. Should have been cut thinner or sautéed. I'd go back again but would order something different.

We were visiting Nashville and invited friends to join us for dinner on a Tuesday night in mid-May. The restaurant was buzzing--which was fun, but we waited forever for our entree because there were too many diners. Our waiter was just fine, but too many people ordering at the same time I suppose. And, it's very expensive.

I was really excited to try Husk and was underwhelmed by the experience. Food was only ok. The service - especially for Nashville where typically I find the service to be fantastic - was sub-par (awkward / unfriendly interactions, drinks took forever, not offered a refill after I sat with an empty glass for a long time). With all of the other great options in the city, I would not go back nor recommend to friends. Also not sure why the only available reservation was listed for 1:30 PM ... we decided to chance it and arrive 30 minutes early ... were seated right away (which was great) but surrounded by empty tables. Overall, of the 3 restaurants we visited this past weekend in Nashville, this one ranked last.

We came to Nashville to listen to good music and eat, our top priorities. And yes, we had some incredible food and were really looking forward to Husk as our fine dining experience.
We believed that we were in for a treat and therefore it's worth the high cost, however, we left let down.
The pokeweed appetizer was very good. Nice texture, good flavor with a great charcoal butter that hit it out of the park. The charcuterie plate and beef tartare were also nicely done as well. No problems there.
However, having had three apps we decided to share a main entree of the pork with butter beans.
Let me say again that I have no problem paying good money for good food, however, when you pay $36 for a single pork loin and a portion of butter beans, you expect it to be good. The pork loin was a bit overdone and chewy / tough. Yes it had a yummy preserved tomato sauce on top, but a sauce should accent the meat, not make up for its lack of flavor. The pork had no flavor and chewy texture, highly disappointing.
And while I appreciate a waitstaff that is educated about the process of how the food is prepared, that is not enough. The food should be the star attraction, otherwise the meal just comes across as surreal Portlandia episode.
All in all, there are too many good places to eat and I would not go back a second time anywhere unless it worth it. And for the cost, I could not in good conscience recommend Husk to others as you are not getting what you pay for. Unless you don't care about the food and are more concerned with ambiance and such, then by all means.

Setting is lovely--a beautiful old home on a hill overlooking Titan Stadium and the river. The menu is locavore-oriented, and the restaurant has its own garden. Cuisine is creative and delicious, and the servers are well-informed and helpful. Both couples were from out-of-town, and we were very happy with our dining experience! It was a little cold in the downstairs room, but definitely more comfortable than the upstairs, which was very warm. We had a very nice time.

I have not had one single bit of food at Husk that has disappointed. Every single dish appears very well thought out and extremely well balanced. Husk highlights stick to your ribs southern food, but somehow balances the fattiness remarkably well with freshness, lightness, and bitterness and elevates southern dishes to something even more delicious, yet familiar. The building itself being an older house is very warm and is a fun atmosphere with open windows all around and cozy decor. The food/service is a tad slow, but the servers are very helpful and extremely knowledgeable about the menu and the food is so delicious, that the time can for sure be overlooked. My husband and I had the pimento cheese dip, the pork belly sliders, shrimp and grits, and grilled catfish with chimichurri and broccoli salad. All were unbelievable. The shrimp and grits were so unique as the shrimp were poached in a ham broth and had a salty/umami flavor without a cream sauce or ham in the actual dish. They also incorporated pea tendrils, a pea vinegar, and soft egg and somehow made shrimp and grits and peas go expertly together and made shrimp and grits somehow feel light. The grilled catfish was our favorite dish - it was so fresh with the broccoli salad, puree and chimichurri, but also somehow felt indulgent. I was not aware I liked grilled catfish until I had it here.

Sad to report that the luster has faded. Once a pioneer in the farm to table movement, the restaurant now appears rather tired and ripe for a renovation. Although we were hungry, we struggled to find something relatively healthy on the menu. Given that they pride themselves as farm-to-table you'd expect organic and health-conscious dishes. The pokeweed fritters were burned and tasteless. The cornbread was dry and unappetizing. The steak tartare was smothered in deep-fried shoestring potatoes although the menu gave no warning of that. The chicken was rather bland and not noteworthy. And the wine list,which was rather pricey, was suspiciously sold out of the inexpensive options blamed on some wine supplier driver strike - an excuse commonly used by restaurants when they failed to properly stock wine/beverage inventory. Our server was charming and attentive - the saving grace of the evening .
