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.

    Celebrated our anniversary at Husk and it was BY FAR the best meal we had during our entire trip to Charleston! Truly, it was probably the best meal I've had this entire year. It is pricy, but entirely worth it! The food was so flavorful and the service was impeccable! Cannot say enough great things about the entire dining experience. SO good!

    I’d never been to Husk Charleston, appetizers were delicious but the space was very loud and I wasn’t expecting a screaming toddler two tables over. My guests half chicken was so dry it was inedible, our server was excellent and recovered quickly but I was disappointed.

    Unfortunately, Husk was very underwhelming! We were so excited to be able to score reservations here and our friends raved about this being their favorite restaurant in Charleston. The food was extremely average and the entrees were quite pricey. We had the ham and buttermilk biscuits for an appetizer (not great-very dry biscuits), the rabbit and ink rigatoni for our entrees, and a side of cornbread (the best thing we ordered). The restaurant is gorgeous (the outdoor bar area was beautiful) and the staff was friendly, but the food just missed the mark for us.

    We traveled from the West Coast for a special occasion and this was our last night. We had a 9:30pm reservation and the table before us was running late. Finally at 10pm after saying we were leaving they asked the table to wrap things up. The manager was beyond useless and rather condescending. The only thing that saved the night was the waiter.

    Husk, we got a late reservation for you, and you let us down. I’ve been here before and it was incredible. This evening, everything was tired. From the food to the waiters forgetting allergies to not offering dessert menus, don’t offer late reservations if you don’t want to serve them. We paid $15 for a bowl of lettuce, and $42 for an uncooked, unflavorful steak. We tried to make an adjustment to the snapper and couldn’t because everything is already mixed together. What is this, cafeteria style? Service was not hospitable (except the bar and hostesses, they were fantastic). The waiter made a mistake on our order forgetting an allergy, and he snidely asked “so you want me to send it back”, making me feel in the wrong. Truly sad experience.

    SO overrated and sub-par experience. Food came out barely lukewarm, tepid, and rushed (late night reservation) and genuinely not that tasty -- especially compared to the MANY better restaurants in Charleston - Husk has obviously seen it's day (past) and I REALLY wanted to like it but couldn't- sorry I spent ANY money on this mediocre (at best) dinner, the good reviews must be from people who don't get out much.

    Food was excellent as always. Every dish. However I’ve had reservations for many, many months and still was seated after my reservation time. Also the wait time for our food was substantially longer than any other time we’ve been! But things happen. Overall the food will always be worth it!

    Overpriced. I heard it was a place I had to go but the food was average at best. Cocktail tasted awful, like jet fuel. Cornbread was average. Pimento cheese was good. The chicken was juicy but basic. Nothing u usual. I could have made it at home. Did t bother to get dessert since everything g else was disappointing. Would not return or recommend

    Husband and I were visiting Charleston for the first time. Read the excellent reviews of Husk, so we knew this was a place we wanted to have dinner. The restaurant is in a historic house, and it is just beautiful. I had the cornmeal fried catfish, with butter bean Hoppin John, rice and tomato gravy. We also shared a local greens salad and skillet cornbread. All the flavors went so well together, and the portion size was just right. My husband had the aged beef and it was very good, too. We shared a slice of cheesecake for dessert. A very pleasant experience.

    This was my third visit to a different Husk with my wife. The Charleston location is beautiful. The hostess and service was great. The oyster appetizer was amazing and did not disappoint. My wife had the ink rigatoni and she raved about it. Unfortunately for me my grass feed beef and confit potatoes fell short. The beef was extremely tough and the entire meal lacked seasoning. It felt like it wasn't even salted. I will go back for sure and try some different next time.

    Husk came highly recommended from friends that had been there a couple years ago. I don’t know what has changed at this place but our experience was totally underwhelming and we wish we hadn’t wasted one of our nights in Charleston at Husk. The menu was small and had an overly ambitious “farm to table” vibe. It seems in their effort to be trendy and popular they are missing some of the basics. All of our food lacked salt and was expensive for what you got. Had to send the wood fired chicken back. The lead time on reservations and the experience didn’t match.

    Very pricey menu. Come here to eat high end meals. My pork was dry but my companion said it was the best fish she ever had (she ordered red snapper). The beignets were outstanding. They were served with caramel sauce and ice cream. I highly recommend them!

    Sadly poor experience after Sean Brock departure! We will likely not return and this has been our special occasion place minus a covid travel break, as frequent Charleston visitors. Dry squid ink pasta with crab shreds you could see but not taste, ok fried catfish but uniformly odd spice on 3 sides that tasted the same, side of burnt cornbread. Slow, not relaxing, SLOW service.
