Centrally located in historic downtown Charleston, Husk transforms the essence of Southern food.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 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.

This was our third or fourth time dinning with you. Everything was impeccable and our server was fantastic and helpful with guiding us through the menu. The shrimp and grits were out of this world! Thank you again for your hospitality and to our server!

Not the same, post Sean Brock departure.

I ate at Husk in 2014, when it was still making it's mark.

If your heading to Charleston, seek out an upcoming chef (in kitchen) restaurant. Sadly, I would pass on Husk.

Great food, great service, price was so reasonable, a great place for lunch. My wife though the cheeseburger was one of the best she has had. I had the shrimp and grits, excellent, first time I had them as a sweet dish, usually had them as a spicy dish. We had the pimento crostinis, I dont really like pimento, but these were so good. My favorite thing of our stay in Charleston. Well worth having lunch there.

On a sunny day, enjoyed sitting on the terrace for a leisurely lunch which was ideal. The sweet potato bisque was thick, rich, and adorned with greens on the side. The shrimp and grits were a manageable, aromatic portion. Couldn’t even consider dessert. Next time! Service attentive but not intrusive. Husk is still worth all of the praise.

Husk was fantastic. So good, in fact, that we went back the next day. We went to several of the most highly reviewed restaurants in Charleston, and Husk was number 1 or number 2. It will be a must visit any time we go to Charleston.

Had a great anniversary lunch at Husk. Great service and even better food. The sweet potato bisque was very tasty and even included duck confit. Fried chicken was crispy and perfectly cooked. It has a perfect level of heat and the side it came with was great- butterbeans and sweet potatoes. My wife had the shrimp and grits (because, Charleston, duh) and it was delicious. Decadent and perfectly cooked shrimp and creamy grits. Didn’t have room for dessert. Definitely recommend!

The atmosphere was pleasant. I recommend you arrive early and have a drink at the outside bar. Sitting outside in a informal but comfortable area was great.

As the our dinner everything was fantastic. The flavors were fresh and creative. Our favorites were the oysters, to die for and catfish with an unbelievable vegetable sauce combination. For desert chocolate cheese cat with a hint of jalapeños. Chocolate and spice!!

A very special dining experience.

I knew this place was going to be good because all of the reviews and personal recommendations. Well it exceeded my expectations. I had a pork shoulder stuffed with pork belly that was marinated and cooked for 18 hours that my fork cut right through. It was one of the best meals I have ever had. Cannot recommend Husk enough.

Great service. Excellent fried chicken, cornbread, and grits. Uncomfortably salty, however. Surprising star of our meal was the homemade ginger beer serviced with a lime.

We ordered the homemade pasta appetizer, pork ribs and they were delicious. The catfish was amazing, as well as the pecan pie dessert.
