Centrally located in historic downtown Charleston, Husk transforms the essence of Southern cuisine. Led by Executive Chef Travis Grimes, the kitchen reinterprets the bounty of the surrounding area, exploring an ingredient-driven cuisine that begins in the rediscovery of heirloom products and redefines what it means to cook and eat in the Lowcountry. At Husk, there are some rules about what can go on the plate – if it doesn’t come from the South, it’s not coming through the door. Much like the décor that inhabits this historic Victorian-era home, the food is modern in style and interpretation. The restaurant is as casual as it is chic, evoking a way of life centered on seasonality and the grand traditions of Charleston life. It is a neighborhood gathering place for friends, and a destination dining spot for travelers seeking an award-winning taste of the South.

The food was delicious and our service was great. We are on the balcony and it was a perfect setting for our anniversary dinner.

Coming into Charleston for a visit, I was told Husk was a must for dinner, and they did not disappoint. The cocktail selection was inventive and delicious. The starters (we went for both the vertical roots and and fried chicken thighs) were gobbled up with delight. We finished with the grouper and pork plates — divine!! Definitely recommended; we’ll gladly return.

I’m not sure if we caught the restaurant on an off night. The staff was lukewarm - no one was really smiling and the service was ok, not great. We struggled to find something that looked “standout”. We settled on a variety of apps and the grouper. We enjoyed the deviled pimento crackers and arugula salad. Other than that, the pork tacos and the grouper were overdone. You needed a knife to cut the grouper. The restaurant was very noisy and challenging to hear our table conversation.

Vacation. Everything was great. We had two children and a 2 1/2 month old and a stroller. At first we were told they didn't have accommodations for the stroller. They eventually made it work out. It seemed as though they didn't want children in the dining room, maybe the fancier part? All in all terrific service and meal!

Service was excellent and the atmosphere was perfect for friends to get together and enjoy food and conversation with no pressures. Food was good no complaints just a little bit small in portion size. For example the deviled pimento cheese bites were $14 for 6 crackers with a spread amount on each cracker the size of a Hershey kiss. Tasted excellent but very small for the price. However the main courses were an appropriate meal size for the price. Locally sourced items and unique takes on them make Husk an experience in itself.

Food quality has plummeted since departure of Sean Brock- sorry to say this as it was always a favorite of ours. The waitress had an attitude and was uninterested in being there. But the food- man, it used to be SO much better.

Our server, Tao, was awesome. He was attentive but low key with recommendations we very much enjoyed. I had a chicken dish that I would say was one of the finest chicken delicacies I have ever experienced and I am over 50.

Food is poor quality, outrageously expensive and not worth the money that they charge you for it. The quantity of food served was minimum and there was no balance of flavors. If you have ever experienced good food it is not a place to go. Wants to be pretentious but it doesn’t have the caliber of cooking required. Just a place where he push off for a status symbol.

Went for an anniversary, the restaurant was beautiful and my reservation was handled well. Service was excellent. However the food portions are VERY SMALL. Be aware that the prices here and relatively comparable for similar downtown Charleston places, but the portions here are about half of those other restaurants. Would recommend 82 Queen next door instead, get the jambalaya there.

Our experience did not meet the reviews we've heard and read about. The food was good, our waiter, Nick, was great. Our cocktails were skimpy for the price, no bread was served before our meal and the food was certainly good, but not great.
