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.

I am sure at one time Husk was an exceptional dining experience. However, our group of four found the staff to be lackluster - no energy and certainly not that happy to serve us. The food was interesting - fish and chicken prepared well. However, all of our vegetables were undercooked - on the verge of raw. This included white beans, potatoes and sweet potatoes. We did not find this to be one of the best restaurants in Charleston and will not return.

Our dinner was spectacular. We began with fire roasted oysters on the half shell with pepper mash. A little spicy but wonderfully prepared. I had snapper in heirloom pepper sauce with wonderful vegetables. Diane had pasta in whey broth with ham. We finished with house made orange bourbon ice cream and peanut butter cookies. It was absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend Husk.

Great service and tasty food. From the complimentary bread to the entrees, cornbread, and desserts, everything was a pleasure. Service was attentive but not intrusive. I loved the space, the restaurant was an old house and tables had plenty of space in between and on the table. Would love to return!

The VERY limited menu is not attractive therefore 3 out of 4 dinners were very disappointed and 1 hardly ate. No discount was offered and the waiter was a bit much when asked about substitutes, “no” was his response.
NEVER WILL RETURN OR RECOMMEND. Open Table should remove them.

From the moment we stepping into Husk, we knew we would have an amazing experience. The host seated us promptly in an understated yet tasteful dining area, and we were greeted by Floyd, our attentive, knowledgeable and communicative server. The real star was our meal, which did exactly as expected: featured locally sourced low country ingredients in a heightened and non-pretentious way. We left feeling satisfied and paid less for the meal than some other less-satisfying lunches and dinners. Needless to say, we will visit anytime we are in the area and tell our friends to do the same. Bravo and thank you, Husk!

Our reservations at Husk were made right along with our flights to ensure we were able get in and they did not disappoint! Service was impeccable. My husband had the steak and I had the Heritage Pork. It was the stuff of culinary dreams as we knew it would be. Thank you for another fabulous experience!! We will be back!

We were there to celebrate our sister’s birthday. We chose Husk as it was recommended in Travel Condé Nast. While the ambience and individualized menu exceeded our expectations, the service and food was underwhelming. For example, we ordered ice tea. Our waitress told us they were unfortunately out of ice tea. How could a Charleston restaurant be out of ice tea? Another miss was their fried chicken. We were hoping for a traditional buttermilk flavored fried chicken. Sadly it was smothered with Old Bay seasoning. They should check out how Founding Farmers makes fried chicken. Finally service - our waitress started off well then disappeared leaving our glasses empty. Not good when our tastebuds needed a wash from the old bay. Husk was nice on the outside but empty in flavor and service.

Really lovely restaurant with beautiful preparation of local resources, impeccable service in a beautiful space. We enjoyed our meals (catfish and steak). I would give a 5 star but the meat was (surprisingly) a bit tough and it was served with about one tablespoon or less of oyster mushrooms. It was still good, just not a 5 star meal. The catfish was perfect as were the sides on each entree. We also enjoyed a lovely apple crisp - one of the best I have ever had. Wine was also very nice. Definitely will be back.

The corn bread was very dry, the pimento cheese app reminded me of cheese wiz on crackers, pork entree seemed to be the leftover pieces put together to form a meat loaf of sorts. The ham and pickles were the best part.

Shrimp and grits were delicious. Pimento crostini also great. Fried chicken wasn't advertised to be spicy, but it definitely was. Not something for someone with GERD. Menu changes quite frequently from what I understand and is based upon what is most available from their suppliers which are only in Southern US states. Wine menu was better than High Cotton's but the wine menu award of the week went to Grill 225.

Terrific locavore concept with even better execution. Energetic dining room with a varied clientele that seemed to be enjoying the original dishes. This location is significantly different decor and approach compared to two other Husk locations we have visited. Hard to pick a favorite one but would rank all very high.

We first learned of Husk while touring the Willett Distillery in 2018 and seeing the country ham hanging in one of the rick houses, so we just had to make the visit on our recent trip down south. The restaurant exceeded all expectations from the moment we walked in. The locally sourced food was magnificently presented and prepared to perfection. Our server, Tanya, was incredibly knowledgeable with the evening's menu, eloquently describing the flavors, characteristics, and preparation of the food. Dinner at Husk was one of the highlights of our journey.
