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.

My catfish was perfectly fried, outstanding, the rice was just fair, the collards were just ok. The Riesling was not very good, if your only offering one I think choosing a German one would be a better decision. The dessert menu was tiny and uninspired.

My husbands chicken was also perfectly tender and flavorful especially for a breast, house made pasta was great, side undercooked.

Server was very knowledgeable and very helpful.

We had a wonderful time and the food overall was delicious, unfortunately my dish was very salty and I couldn’t eat it. But appetizers were phenomenal and my husband’s mais dish was delicious. We will try again next time we are in Charleston

A wonderful spot in Charleston! The food was delicious, our waiter was phenomenal and was so excited about every single dish on the menu. The ambiance of the restaurant was filled with southern charm. I highly recommend their Goat Cheese Cheesecake ( I forgot the official name) as a sweet ending to the experience at Husk!

I’m a Charleston resident and have always enjoyed dining at Husk. We had originally had a party of 5, but arrived with 3 people as the others could not make it last minute. Was told from the hostess, that this changes things. The dinner service and the food was great, as usual. Was upset that I booked my reservation a month and a half out, and was given a table in the courtyard. Normally this would have been fine, but it was 45 degrees out. Even with space heaters, it was freezing. We could see our breath as we chatted at dinner. Was disappointed to have looked forward to this dinner for so long, and to not enjoy because we weren’t comfortable. Spent close to $225 at dinner and left very disappointed with this visit.

We drove to Charleston to celebrate a Birthday week
As expected - the service/food were magnificent

We tried two different starters - the “Panzenella and Wraps
The main courses of Duck Confit and Catfish were outstanding

We greatly appreciated the recognition of the birthday and the attention to detail and service provided. We truly enjoyed our night - and the surprise that our children paid fir dinner too!

Great as always - and worth the drive from GA. to SC

We had indoor dining and were seated promptly. Staff was attentive, but the number of dinner choices was rather limited. The food was good, but nothing outstanding. Our favorite of the night was the Charleston Light Dragoon's Punch, a delightful concoction derived from a 1792 recipe. Would be perfect for a balmy, summer evening.

We all know this is the best representation of the collective cuisines of the south, I don’t need to tell you how incredible everything here is.
I just want to reiterate the value of this meal. For such a thoughtful and perfect menu with impeccable, warm service... the price is astoundingly affordable.

Love you Husk!

We have been going to HUSK for 4 years ... for cocktails. Some of the best in Charleston! We decided to finally try for a full experience and get appetizers and dinners. The meat board was 22 dollars and barely got any meat. Should have got cheese with that price. They woodfired oysters were awesome! That was really the only thing that was good. Our 2 entrées were a total of $65 and the portions were like 4 bites each. we spent 49 dollars on drinks and the rest on food equaling $175 and left hungry. Service was awesome! Ambiance was great, and the cocktails still stood up. Other than that, the food was meh, and would never go back for dinner.

Service and drinks were excellent but the food wasn’t great. The portion size for the entrees is small for what the prices are and their menu items are things you can find in any southern restaurant. I’d recommend stopping in for an old fashioned and then getting dinner elsewhere

Food was great service was great. We couldn’t decide out of three entrees so we had two there and brought the third one home. I felt like they only gave us a half portion of the entree and still charged us full$32 price. That was disappointing. But the food was wonderful.

We've been to McCgrady's but never to Husk. Both were exemplary in food, ambiance, and service. Husk had a very comforting but elevated ambiance. The food was as expected...excellent! We didn't have cocktails during this visit but the fresh-squeezed orange juice was amazing. The atmosphere was quiet and intimate. Honestly,​ there wasn't anything I didn't like about Husk!

We had heard great things about Husk, but we didn't fully believe the hype until we experienced it for ourselves. We were nervous about this restaurant because the menu felt limited, but the food, ambiance, everything about Husk exceeded all of our expectations. We will definitely be making a reservation to come back again and again anytime we are in Charleston. Truly one of the best restaurants we have experienced across all regions.

Super interesting ingredient combinations! The chicken with the gnocchi was delicious. The house made kielbasa was amazing! Some of the flavor combos weren’t our favorite, they could be strange. The dumplings with the potato and fish weren’t great. The drinks were also delicious. Be prepared to spend a lot of money on food and drinks! I recommend getting a table on the upstairs porch or right by the windows upstairs so you have a nice, Charleston view.
