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.

Husk is amazing. Every ingredient is thoughtfully chosen and each dish is well balanced. We have been there 4 times now and have never had a bad dish. The service is excellent and the wait staff can answer any question about each dish. I highly recommend Husk as a must visit when coming to Charleston or the surrounding area.

We arrived at 5pm as it was the only reservation we could get.
We sat down expecting it to fill up and the restaurant remained empty which meant the ambiance was not great at all - also why were there no later reservations? Seems a bit weird.
Appetizers were great.
Mains were average.
Left feeling slightly disappointed as we were excited to eat at Husk!

We really enjoyed our meal. We were seated right away and the waitress was knowledgeable about my food restrictions (gluten) and was able to tell me what I could safely have. The ambiance was lovely—lots of windows for sunlight, tables not crowded together, and it wasn’t loud inside.

I will start by saying that the service was great. Our server gave some great recommendations and was super helpful. I was really excited about o try Husk and was honestly a bit disappointed. We went on a day that was pretty hot and even though we were seating inside, it felt like the AC was barely working. My husband was sweating the whole time, which was super uncomfortable. We had the crispy wings which were VERY delicious, and the donuts which were pretty good but a little dense. Our entrees were disappointing. My husband had a burger which was dripping grease all over his plate (which I know some people love, just not his taste). I had a salad which tasted barely dressed and oddly salty. For $16 I expected something a bit more substantial and appetizing. I also had the dragoon punch which was tasty but pretty weak in the boozy content. So, in summary, I really wanted to love Husk but mostly found it to be overrated in the taste department, but great in the service department.

Our waitress was fabulous. I felt at home in what could’ve been an alienating experience (I don’t do fine dining often) she explained the meals and drinks without being condescending and she KNEW the menu! It was my wife and I’s anniversary and we loved celebrating it there 🙂. Food was the best we had in Charleston and I highly recommend checking it out.

We began by splitting the arugula salad - excellent. My wife had the grouper which was absolutely outstanding and I had the catfish which was also terrific. My only suggestion is that perhaps the chef could dial back the “hot sauce” on the catfish. I’m from Buffalo so I’m very familiar with this flavor but the catfish was so light, crunchy and delightful on its own that I don’t think it needed so much hot sauce. Maybe a different sauce or just less of the sauce that I had. Make no mistake, still an outstanding meal. We will definitely be back.

It felt like amateur hour at Husk not the upscale and polished establishment they claim to be. We waited well over an hour for our lunch to arrive. The food was just ok. Maybe it was an off day for them?

This was the single greatest restaurant experience I’ve ever had down to every detail. The food was some of the best I’ve had the pleasure of eating. The waiter guided us through the culinary experience with great expertise and was courteous the entire meal. The waiter was also very knowledgeable and could give me details on every dish and gave great recommendations for pairing drinks with our meal. Husk is a must visit destination if you are visiting Charleston!

Don’t believe the Hype, entree selections very limited, and with that, 2 of the entrees not available. Artisanal Cheese plate sparse and not worth the expense. The Skillet corn bread was overcooked & dry…
