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.

My expectations were much higher given that this is suggested on so many "must go to in Charleston" lists. Though the ingredients are quality, I simply didn't find this food that inspired and the menu quite limiting. It was good but didn't knock my socks off as I had expected.

We have waited a long time to get to Husk. It did not disappoint. The drinks were lovely, and the meals were tasty! The sleeper on the menu was the cookies, they were otherworldly! I’ve never had a better cookie in my entire life and I’m old! Thanks Husk!

Made an early reservation to avoid the toddler's bedtime, but the place was still lively. Very interesting menu offering a variety of Southern cuisine. The corn fritters were fantastic. I had a glazed snapper that was exquisitely done; however, my wife ordered a steak, and even after sending it back once, they couldn't seem to get it to medium. For as fine a place as it was, it's hard to miss on the basics. Would still go back, but hoping for better execution next time.

Husk responded to our requests on seating because of Covid. They are very safety conscious.
My wife and I enjoyed the fried corn fritters very much. They were delicately crisp and the relish was a perfect aside. I had the sweet chili glazed snapper and it was prepared with skill. The pan fried cabbage and blackberries in a cilantro broth was a marriage of exceptional flavors. Ditto on the heritage pork, one of their signature dishes. The pork and the peas was Southern hospitality for the tastebuds.
Start with the dragoon punch and this meal will punctuate your visit to Charleston.

Food was inventive and the servers were attentive. We were offered to sit in the cocktail loft vs main dining room to get our table more quickly. The air con was freezing and the server did not address our request for it to be lowered.

We were underwhelmed by Husk. We’d heard so many great things but overall our experience was mediocre. We did enjoy the chicken wings and my husband’s steak was delicious (although tiny!). My chicken was under cooked with soggy skin and the pasta it came with was similar to what you’d find in a lean cuisine! We spent a pretty penny and both left hungry. We had much better experiences at other, less pricey places during our time in Charleston.

We definitely thought the food was not worth the money. The oysters were very small and the pig ears which were highly recommended were big hard pieces of cartilage. Save your teeth on these.

First will start by saying the service was what you’d expect of a 5 star. Waiter was very attentive and quick with everything. That said. The food at Husk is seriously lacking. Do not get what all the hype is about.

We got their skillet bacon corn bread as an appetizer. It was burnt to a crisp on the bottom. My wife was hungry so she asked for honey and doused it in copious amounts to drown out the flavor. I did not touch my half. The waiter inquired as to why. Told him was burnt and he just took it away.

Dinner comes, Which we were super excited about as many know the reservations for this place can take months, having lost two reservations over course of last year due to kids having some kind of sickness last minute.

My wife ordered the snapper, which I can say was very very good. What you’d expect of a restaurant of Husks reputation.

I ordered the shrimp and grits a southern staple. I can honestly say they were the worst I’ve ever had (and have had a LOT). Whoever was the chef decided to only cook one side of the shrimp and Absolutely scorched them! They were RUBBER! If you were to drop them on the floor I’m sure they’d bounce up and right back in the bowl! The grits were absolutely water (if there were any).

I’m 41 years old I can honestly say this is the first meal in my life (and I have been out to a lot of restaurants) that I sent back!

I then got the chicken pasta dish. The chicken was cooked to perfection. Perfectly moist. The pasta however was a penne noodle that was so mushy you could feed it to a 1 month old and not fear them choking on it. The sauce and (supposedly fresh tomatoes) tastes exactly like Classico directly from a jar with no seasoning added at all.

If you’re from Charleston or the surrounding area, you probably have experienced this and know there are many better places to go. We’ve only lived here 3 years. Still venturing about.

If you are not from Charleston and visiting, looking to find that amazing perfect meal. Do yourself a
