Centrally located in historic downtown Charleston, Husk transforms the essence of Southern cuisine. Led by Executive Chef Ray England, 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.

    While the service was good, the food was very disappointing. The crab appetizer was very salty, and the snapper dish was dry. I am not convinced about all the hype about this place.

    We went on the recommendation of someone else. I ordered the steak. It was cooked great and tasted great, the whole 3 bites of it. However, the rest of dinner was awful. They have a theme of pureeing everything. The steak was put on something pureed that looked like and tasted like baby food. And on top of that, the side dish of sweet potatoes was also pureed. Disgusting. I will never visit again. What a major disappointment.

    Excellent meal. The oysters were fresh, plump and tasty. I had the catfish and it was crisp on the outside and perfectly cooked on the inside. The smoked chocolate mousse dessert was also very good. We walked in about 30 minutes early to our reservation and they were kind enough to seat us right away.

    It was good, but nothing special. Three of us ordered the rabbit, steak and porchetta. Also ordered oysters and lettuce wraps for apps. All were good. We tried to order a couple of apps with our drinks but were told the chef required our dinner choices at the same time. We felt rushed when the restaurant was not busy. Husk was okay but did not live up to the hype.

    Pork chop raw! Manager stated it was in a brine so it stays pink( it wasn’t pink it was borderline purple it was sounder cooked. jWhen bringing the recook she also stated the kitchen Intentionally overcooked it so it wouldn’t be under cooked( it had so much steam coming off the food and was so chewy that I would bet it came out of the fryer and in the microwave to die. One would think you would just get it cooked properly. Burger way over cooked. Carmelized onions? There was one onion not carmelized just lighted cooked. Was barely translucent. Donuts good. Over priced 5 donuts holes for $14, but good. Hostess were great. Server not so much. Was out of water at the whole table only got refilled when a had another waiter find her so we could pay. The other server seemed great we just got the bad egg.

    The house is beautiful but scantly and rather poorly decorated. The server was great and attentive and well informed. The food was trying too hard to be different and the tastes, although unique, were nothing special.

    Husk was just mediocre. A lot of people say good things about it, but my pear gin drink was sort of tasteless, my partners Bloody Mary mild and the mix was weak in tomato flavor, the etouffee was flat, and the hash was overpowered by smoke if you got everything in one bite. Also, the only gf thing on the entire menu was the yogurt and hash.

    Husk Charleston is located near the Charleston Market and in a lovely walkable neighborhood. The food is completely local as well: shrimp, grits, other seafood and local produce. Much of it organically grown! This restaurant is a must for an authentic Low Country experience!

    We enjoyed the hospitality of all we interacted with. We were traveling with an infant and we felt comfortable and accommodated. Our server was wonderful and recommended numerous delicious dishes including hells bells cocktail, carrot side, and a surprise favorite- rabbit! The apple bread pudding with cheddar ice cream had amazing flavor. A truly special evening on vacation!

    Service was great, but food was just average. We had eaten brunch there last spring, so were eager to enjoy Husk for dinner. The rabbit was like sausage; the shrimp pasta was good and spicy, but not special. The first course was heavy, not unique. And the price was what we would expect for a really good meal.

    Lacking southern hospitality. No effort to keep their business. Resting on laurels. Bland food. Bitter greens. Waiter has no personality. Curt phone reception. Hostess was nice. Good cocktails.

    The service was excellent and the food was very good. The portions are very small I ordered the beef and was told it will be 5 oz. I didn’t realize how small 5 oz really is. I received 5 small sliced portions of beef. Also I ordered a glass of wine which was excellent but it also did not look like a 6oz pour. I would of ordered another glass but not for such a small pour.

Do not pass up the chance to visit the bar prior to dining as their cocktails are wonderful and the bar itself is a special experience! Can’t wait to come back and enjoy another culinary delight.

    The food here was brilliant. Especially the pork dishes, which they seemed to do some sort of magic with, but also the vegan dish (not on the menu) that they whipped up for my Father in law. Sometimes "veggie plate" is really boring, but each of the four bowls they brought were really delicious and different - collard greens like none I have had, smokey, even without the usual meat in the mix, and not at all bitter. A wide variety of mushrooms in a delicous sauce, and so on. The service was outstanding (our server was Leslie, and her recommendations were spot-on!).

    A faulty fire sprinkler erupted on the mostly empty outdoor dining balcony but operations inside carried on despite an ear piercing fire alarm. A pleasant staff and decadent menu more than made up for a kitchen that was lagging in order delivery. The Pastrami Pork Hash is a hearty brunch choice. (It could benefit from a second poached egg). Our starter, a Smoked Fish Toast on crusty bread, is destined for fame, as it combines smoked trout with egg salad and fish roe (domestic caviar). My spouse loved the thinly sliced country ham with buttery biscuits. This was not my grandfather's country ham. Light on salt and gristle.

    Wonderful service. Daily menu was outstanding. It was our anniversary, and our menus were printed with "Happy Anniversary". That was a very personal touch. We were very impressed. The staff were all in a great mood and smiling the entire time. Our cocktails were made from fresh and handmade ingredients. I have already recommended Husk to several of my friends. We will definitely go back.
