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.

Nothing like we had hoped for. Largely disappointing. SalD was tasteless. Service was unfriendly.

We were very much looking forward to dining at Husk, but the service was horrible. The waitress did not put any effort into ensuring that we had an enjoyable dining experience. Two of the menu items we ordered had sold out she made no suggestions of what would be a good substitute. My boyfriend ended up ordering the chicken dish thinking it would be the fried chicken dish that was served to the neighboring table to us. Instead it was a grilled chicken dish with pasta and veggies. Not really his type of dish unfortunately. We rarely saw the waitress and when we did she was very monotone and just seemed uninterested. Needless to say we were very disappointed since the previous experience at Husk was amazing. ☹️

The service was excellent, and the food was exceptional. We have eaten at Husk before, and love the bar. While the bar was less accessible than before due to Covid, our meal was the best yet. The charcuterie plate was delicious, and the catfish was amazing.

We’ve been visiting family in Charleston for 5 years and this was our first visit to Husk. What a treat! Last minute decision and were able to get a reservation. We liked it all - cornbread, pork lettuce wraps, shrimp and grits, pork entree, and blueberry shortcake. Nice but bit pricey wines. Both the hostess and our server Nick were very friendly and professional. I admit that I was a bit nervous about dining out in S.C. because of Covid and because mask wearing wasn’t implemented as soon here as other states. However, it was perfectly fine at Husk. We were greeted outside and then shown directly to our table. Tables were placed a good distance from one another and all cleaning and safety precautions were being used. Thank you for a very nice evening, Husk!

The old house and Charm is outstanding the waiter was good but hard to understand with his make so not his fault. The food was good but not very many choices and very expensive for the quantity. The hostess was a bit rude but i think she was having a bad day. I sat and wondered if times where different if the experience would’ve been better.

We were really impressed with Husk. The food, ambiance and service were sublime. A menu that changes daily is difficult to execute, but Husk did it without skipping a beat.

Husk is our favorite restaurant in Charleston. We always have such a pleasant experience and the food is incredible. The staff goes out of their way to make the experience even more amazing. We are from Chicago and are sure to always go to husk whenever in Charleston.

Husk was amazing. We made reservations about a month and a half in advance. Food was amazing, portions were a good size. The menu says what state each protein is from. Gorgeous interior, great service in an old residential home. Would definitely go back.

Always perfection! I was particularly impressed by the staff and how they seamlessly managed the wearing of masks, cleaning and social distancing requirements as if it were normal. I had to be in Charleston for a family medical emergency and was nervous about dining out but all of my fears were allayed by the staff and patrons.

If you’re visiting Charleston, Husk must be on your list of places to go for dinner, brunch, or both. If you live in CHS and haven’t been, you’re missing out; go ASAP. If you’ve visited Charleston before but didn’t go, visit the city again and go to Husk. The building is beautiful, the atmosphere is relaxed, the staff is exceptional and the food is off the charts. I had been 4-5 times between 2011 and 2014 but recently made it back in 2020. Better than ever. Our server was Tanya and she is amazing too.

Fantastic restaurant and meal. Loved the seasonality of the menu- I had shrimp and grits, my friend had the pork dish. Both were amazing. Tables were distanced, servers wore masks and signage was posted on each table that surfaces had been disinfected between guests.
