Centrally located in historic downtown Charleston, Husk transforms the essence of Southern food.Led by Chef/Partner Sean Brock and 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 Charleston. 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. 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, with a little bite of the South for everyone’s palates.

Not near as good as the reviews and other media says it is. Actually was a little disappointed with the food and the insanely loud noise levels in the restaurant.

We planned our entire weekend getaway around our reservation at Husk. Our dinner was just wonderful. The ambiance was casual and relaxed, but so warm and had a feeling of being somewhere special. It felt like eating at someone's home.
I had the steak dish with a "boursin" style cheese top and grilled veggies. Everything was cooked absolutely perfectly, and my steak just melted in my mouth. My wife had the catfish with the best sauce.
I don't think we were seated more than 10 minutes before I was texting photos of the menus to other friends and family to tell them we'll have to come back.
While never once feeling rushed or pushed, we completed our meal and were walking out the door in just 40 minutes. I think this was partly due to having a small party (2) right at opening (6:00pm) and only having 1 drink each. Truly terrific meal!

Fried chicken, as advertised, is quite good. So, was the crispy pigs ear wrapped in lettuce, the cornbread and the shrimp & grits. Service solid as well. Server knew the menu well and took the time to describe dishes and drinks. And, the pork fat honey butter is outrageously good.

We had lunch at Husk and the food was amazing! The burger was the best I’ve ever had. Try one of their shrubs if you want something non-alcoholic and refreshing.

Was a guest with people who have eaten here and was excited to try , Menu changes everyday so that was something to look forward to , Just happened that night menu was not to my liking , What I ate food was good but limited selection for my taste . Also very upsetting such a high end expensive place has very strict pour measures on there drinks . For that reason alone I wouldn't go back .

We highly recommend Husk. It is quiet atmosphere set in an old Charleston Home. No TVs or other distractions. The food was excellent. For appetizers, my wife had charred broccoli with pork belly, Nicola potato, country ham harissa and feta cheese while I had roasted SC (South Carolina) mushrooms with smoked TN (Tennessee) brisket, whipped farmers cheese , crispy kale and sourdough. Our entrees consisted of Atlantic Grouper and confit duck leg. Both dishes where scrumptious. The grouper came with white acre and English peas , Hakurei turnips, sour garlic, dill and aged cheese broth. The duck came with pan fried cabbage, sugar snaps and baby carrots, and country ham with "XO" sauce. Note: the menu changes daily depending on what fresh produce is in season. The restaurant celebrates produce produced locally and the Chef/Owner Sean Brock has resurrected many heirloom vegetables and vintage recipes. There is an extensive list of spirits. I was attracted to the list of bourbons and wines. The next time we are in Charleston we will go back just to explore cuisine further.

This restaurant was amazing! While waiting for lunch, they brought homemade sesame rolls that were so light, almost like a croissant but not flaky, with their own tupelo honey butter. The shrimp and grits were the best I've had, light and cheesy in a curry broth with green onions and peppers. So delicious! We also shared the sausage melt and that was so incredibly good! Mild sausage and white cheddar on a hoagie roll. Our server was very helpful. I would definitely go back and highly recommend Husk.

Visited Charleston from Boston. Knew we wanted to come to Husk for our anniversary. Totally worth it. We hit up the bar first and had the punch and shrubs. At the restaurant, service was great. We were given customized menus that said Happy Anniversary and glasses of bubbly. Food was beyond amazing and delicious. Wished we could eat there again soon.

We waited over 15 minutes for a cheese plate with our coffee for dessert and when we asked our server where it was he was anxious to give us a bill to be on our way. No explanation or apology for the mishap. Unfortunate.

Our honeymoon visit to Charleston included a meal at the much acclaimed Husk. It did not disappoint. The service and food were outstanding. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. Our water glasses were continuously filled without request. The food was plated beautifully and tasted oh so good. The menu changes daily as the food is locally sourced, so I suspect it’s based on what available and in season. Reservations are a must.

This was our first reservation in Charleston for our babymoon. We chose this place after recommendations from a few people. It surely exceeded our expectations. We had the oysters and pickle ear lettuce wraps for our first course. I don't typically like oysters but these were done very well. For our second course we did the NC chicken and the pork chop. So many great flavors all in one dish. We finished off the night with a chocolate ice cream sandwich and an oatmeal pie. The oatmeal pie dish gives you varying textures and flavors. Needless to say we will return here on future trips to Charleston.

My negative review won’t stand out against all these. I’ve been to husk many times both in Nashville, Savannah, and Charleston. Always love it. This week in Charleston I went twice, once for dinner and once for brunch. Both times this trip were extremely disappointing.

Brunch- They opened at 10am for brunch an we were seated right away. We didn't get our meals until 11:15. That's over an hour wait and the place was half empty. But hey I was having a good time and, I'll wait for good food. We got the savory French toast with ox tail. There was barely any ox tail on it but the real problem was the French toast was completely RAW inside. The outside was seared but the inside was like bread pudding. I ended up having to split my meal with my boyfriend because he couldn't eat it. We didn't want to wait another 30-45 minutes for another meal but we did mention to the server about the rawness and he agreed and apologized. He took it off the bill for us but it was just disappointing because I'd rather just have a good meal and pay for it. My boyfriend left hungry and I felt bad since husk is one of his favs too.

Dinner- my boyfriend got the confit duck which was actually good. The rest of the meal was not up to standard. We ordered the oysters which were grilled and two of them of out of 6 we’re all dried and up and shriveled. They shouldn’t be putting that food out. Also we ordered a salad. The reason we fell in love with his is they source local ingredients and the vegetables are always a favorite. But the salad was nothing special. We got a crudo and there was BARELY any fish- it was all fruit and the dish was too sweet. They shouldn’t even call it a crudo it should just be called “peaches with a few pieces of fish” lol.

I wouldn’t bother writing a negative review if we had once had experience (my preview yelp review for husk is 5 stars) but because between brunch, dinner, and the happy hour at the bar we had I spent a couple hundred bucks and left unhappy each time.

The food was subpar for the price and WAY too salty. Didn't finish one entree (pork chop) and the other (duck confit) tasted like it sat in salt water for weeks. The apps were just OK. When we mentioned our disappointment with the food when the server asked about our meal, the server was quite confrontational which threw us a bit. I was very excited to eat at this restaurant but will avoid it in the future given all the other quality options in Charleston.

We were in Charleston for the Spoleto Festival, 2018. Husk is easy walking distance from The Dock Street Theater. Even for my 83 yo Mom who doesn't walk easily. The wait staff was pleasant and helpful. The food delicious. The atmosphere was great. We were seated upstairs and really enjoyed the location. We had reservations and we happy. The wait was 1.5 hours at 12:45pm. We meant to get back to the bar patio which had been recommended but we ran out of time.

Great food quality but arrogant hipster waiter ruined the experience. We let the restaurant manager know our experience was less than par and he dismissed us by asking "well, I'm not sure what you want me to do about it". Well, isn't figuring that out your job, Mr. Manager? Southern hospitality forgot to show up that night. I'd definitely recommend the chef / food, but wait until he joins another restaurant where his service staff didn't come from Mc Donald's.

I was visiting Charleston for only a couple of days and my adult daughter was recovering from a food borne illness a few days prior to our lunch at Husk, therefore, her appetite was not 100%. The waiter suggested a drink with sparkling water and bitters to soothe her stomach and also went above and beyond to suggest and accommodate her 'weak' stomach. He was supportive and empathetic
We would love to go back !

This is one of my favorites in Charleston. Specialty drinks, bacon, tomato jam, fresh quality in every dish, delightful service and wonderful diners make this place very special. My husband and I rarely agree on restaurants but Husk is one that definitely keeps us both very happy.
