Husk - Charleston Ratings and Reviews
Was not at all convinced this southern gem would live up to all the hype it has received. I was wrong! It was a divine way to spend in afternoon. We scored a balcony table outdoors on a unusually warm winter afternoon, sipped playful cocktails and thoughtfully selected wine. Normally not a fan of pimento cheese, but this was a standout. Salty and delicious!
Shrimp and grits , the best I have ever tasted, don't even think about sharing it, you want want to waste a spoonful! Fried chicken was crunchy and moist, spiced to perfection.
Service was exceptional, thanks for the wonderful southern hospitality!
Husk represents all that is good in the world of food. With classic southern dishes and fresh, high quality, local ingredients, Husk serves up the finest in American South cuisine. I’ve been to both the Nashville and Charleston locations, and Husk is a must every time I visit. Don’t miss this place. I have ordered from all over their intriguing menu and have been excited about every dish. Also - they make a mean menu of craft cocktails. Friendly service, fine southern food, a standout. Come hungry and leave happy.
Husk for lunch is a great experience. Soul food with focus on the ingredients and perfect preparation. Servers are knowledgeable and passionate. Embered Wings with Cheerwine Glaze, Shrimp and Grits, Pork Belly stew, and cast iron cornbread were all fantastic. The bourbon flight pairs nicely, or try the homemade ginger beer. Great time!
I was recommended Husk from a friend and decided to go on a week night. Our server was fantastic, very knowledgeable and courteous. The reason for the three star review was due to the atmosphere. The dining room was extremely smoky. It seemed like the kitchens ventilation failed or something. Our clothes smelt like a “grill/bonfire” the rest of the evening. Food was delicious. The steak was cooked perfectly to order and the cornbread was worth every penny.
Came to Charleston with my husband to celebrate my 30th Birthday. We are from Asheville, NC and consider ourselves foodies. THIS MEAL WAS FANTASTIC! Honestly one of the best meals we have ever shared, start to finish! From our bar time through 3 appetizers, 2 entrees and dessert, everything was near perfect! Friendly, attentive staff made the experience of the food even better! Thank you Husk!
Booked a reservation here for my trip almost a month ago, but it actually wasn’t too busy (Monday night in February). Beautiful rustic feeling decor, extremely creative seasonal menu. The chicken skins were one of the best things I ever ate! Would make another trip to Charleston just to come here again
Husk is a solid restaurant and I would go back if there was no wait, but this isn't a place to wait in line for hours when there's so much other great food in Charleston. I came here for lunch with my husband and friend. We ordered the split pea hummus which was EXCELLENT and refreshing. I would definitely order that again in a heart beat. The fried chicken was a solid dinner and I enjoyed it, but the pimento cheese board was a little too much and overboard. I expected a charceuterie board but it was prepared crostini.
This place becomes a challenge to review, because the menu changes from day to day. This was my second time here and it was noticeabley better this time. It may be that the weekend chef crew is better than the weekday one, or the menu was more to my liking this time. In either case, Husk is a worthwhile experience. It's creative takes on local cuisine do not disappoint. May have been the best duck confit I have ever had. The romanesco side was also an incredible compliment to the meal.
My husband and I ate here for lunch when vacationing in Charleston. It was a nice day and we sat on an upstairs balcony which was quiet and lovely. The service was perfect, our waiter was very knowledgeable and we never had empty water glasses. I am expecting, so I decided to try one of the Shrub drinks (mango) and it was so refreshing and unique that my husband got his second vodka drink mixed with the ginger shrub. Pimento cheese appetizer and arugula salad were really delicious. Then we had shrimp and grits (awesome) and the fried chicken for entrees. I loved the rustic feeling and serving dishes. Everything was delicious, it was our favorite dining experience overall while in Charleston. Would highly recommend.
My boyfriend and I went down to Charleston for the weekend as a pre-Valentine's Day getaway and were super excited to try out Husk. The atmosphere and the food was top notch. Any questions we had were answered and I would recommend everyone, local or visitor to go to Husk!
First time we’ve visited Charleston and Husk. It came recommended to us as a must eat. It definitely lived up to the hype. Reservations are a must. I would recommend allowing enough time before dinner to visit the connected bar. The area upstairs in the bar is super cute and a nice place to have drinks before dinner. We will most definitely visit again next time we are in Charleston!
