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.

We have been here three times trying to like this restaurant. Thought with the new chef it would be different but it was just ok. Can’t believe this is best Charleston has to offer. I would go to Circa 1886 fir an amazing romantic evening and eat outside !

We’d tried to get dinner reservations but they were unfortunately at capacity. We then decided try the brunch and thankfully got in. It was well worth the attempts. Everything was impeccable. Plan ahead and make this a must do.

This is a Charleston classic, started by Sean Brock. His founding partner is now Exec Chef and has maintained the Southern sensibility while expanding the range of the offerings. It is even better than before, in my opinion. We had a wonderful experience!

Incredible dining (and drinking) experience! The food was a 10/10, service was a 10/10 and the ambience is a 10/10. Justin, the bar manager was very very knowledgeable about everything from the history of the building, recommendations of things to do and places to see in Charleston and his bourbon knowledge is second to none. My girlfriend says he makes the best Cosmo south of NYC.

Get the fried chicken, you will not be disappointed! It’s not on the main menu, but is on the takeout menu. Ask for their homemade hot sauce and drizzle it and some honey on top. Hands down the best fried chicken I’ve ever had.

We are very glad you enjoyed your experience with us. Justin takes his bourbon very seriously as you found out. Can't wait to have you join us again. Cheers!

Food was good but portions are small. Shrimp dish was very good but a bit salty foe the average person. Waitress was ok but didn’t add to the experience. Needed music or something inside wasn’t the best ambience. Cute outside place though!

Absolutely phenomenal food and service but the air conditioner constantly blowing on us made it hard to truly enjoy the meal. The 6 tables upstairs were all visibly uncomfortable with the temperature...

Excellent all around. Server was stellar-Her name started with a V (sorry the rest isn’t being recalled at the moment!).
Steamed us towards starting with the scrumptious smoked Oysters then the Quail and Chicken as entrees.. Every bite and flavor found within was most pleasing.
MUST mention the chocolate cake that was accompanied with an adorable but slight scoop of vanilla ice cream that we spoon battled each bite for! Seriously !!!!
Will try to make Husk a part of every Charleston trip for this pleasing and enjoyable experience.

If I were simply rating the service, I would give Husk 5 stars across the board - the service was excellent! I also really enjoyed the ambiance and the overall experience. However, the food itself really fell flat for me. The emphasis on local/heirloom ingredient is great, but for the price, I was expecting more innovative flavors and better presentation. I would consider returning to try their cocktails, but the dinner menu items we had here were disappointing.

We have been to Husk several times in the past year. This time was a disappointment! We had three different entrees and all three were: lacking in flavor, small portions, and way over priced! The catfish particularly was substandard! We, a party of 4, all left saying, “Why did we eat there when there are so many good restaurants in Charleston!”

Pretty disappointing - late to greet us, no offer to keep white wine chilled until we drank half of it (I actually prefer no to chill it, but this is a basic step of service), forgot our appetizers, didn't check on us once during the meal except to drop food off, snapper overcooked, no apology or attempt to turn our experience around. Really let us down as it was our first dinner in town after an 8 hour drive.

Far better choices in Charleston. Expensive for what you get. Pork Belly was great, the Burger is fast food level with what appeared to be frozen patties. Was really disappointed but was warned by a local this was the case.
