About Husk - Charleston

Centrally located in historic downtown Charleston, Husk transforms the essence of Southern food.Led by Chef/Partner Sean Brock and 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.

Simple, classic menu items that are taken to the next level. Overall, everything lived up to the hype. Off the lunch menu we ordered the pimento cheese crostini (amazing), pig's ear lettuce wraps (excellent), fried pickles (very good)and smoked brisket sandwich. Brisket sandwich was the only thing we wouldn't order again, it read well on the menu and was executed nicely, but wasn't as refined as the other dishes. We would rather have had more apps instead. Bloody Mary's were the best we have ever had! Highly recommend these!

We were lucky enough to score reservations when visiting Charleston and I will say that Husk is a must eat place! The food was pretty delicious. We got the cornbread which was just ok, ours was a little burnt. We also got the pig ear lettuce wraps, which had great flavor but the crunch of the pig ears was really grossing me out (totally just me because I had never had pig ears). I had the shrimp and grits which were amazing!! And my husband had the butchers sandwich that had ham and brisket—DELISH!! The local beer, Boy King IPA is a must get if you are into IPAs. Overall, it was a beautiful spot, not too expensive and their menu is always changing.

Was not at all convinced this southern gem would live up to all the hype it has received. I was wrong! It was a divine way to spend in afternoon. We scored a balcony table outdoors on a unusually warm winter afternoon, sipped playful cocktails and thoughtfully selected wine. Normally not a fan of pimento cheese, but this was a standout. Salty and delicious!
Shrimp and grits , the best I have ever tasted, don't even think about sharing it, you want want to waste a spoonful! Fried chicken was crunchy and moist, spiced to perfection.
Service was exceptional, thanks for the wonderful southern hospitality!

Husk represents all that is good in the world of food. With classic southern dishes and fresh, high quality, local ingredients, Husk serves up the finest in American South cuisine. I’ve been to both the Nashville and Charleston locations, and Husk is a must every time I visit. Don’t miss this place. I have ordered from all over their intriguing menu and have been excited about every dish. Also - they make a mean menu of craft cocktails. Friendly service, fine southern food, a standout. Come hungry and leave happy.

Husk for lunch is a great experience. Soul food with focus on the ingredients and perfect preparation. Servers are knowledgeable and passionate. Embered Wings with Cheerwine Glaze, Shrimp and Grits, Pork Belly stew, and cast iron cornbread were all fantastic. The bourbon flight pairs nicely, or try the homemade ginger beer. Great time!

I was recommended Husk from a friend and decided to go on a week night. Our server was fantastic, very knowledgeable and courteous. The reason for the three star review was due to the atmosphere. The dining room was extremely smoky. It seemed like the kitchens ventilation failed or something. Our clothes smelt like a “grill/bonfire” the rest of the evening. Food was delicious. The steak was cooked perfectly to order and the cornbread was worth every penny.

Came to Charleston with my husband to celebrate my 30th Birthday. We are from Asheville, NC and consider ourselves foodies. THIS MEAL WAS FANTASTIC! Honestly one of the best meals we have ever shared, start to finish! From our bar time through 3 appetizers, 2 entrees and dessert, everything was near perfect! Friendly, attentive staff made the experience of the food even better! Thank you Husk!

Booked a reservation here for my trip almost a month ago, but it actually wasn’t too busy (Monday night in February). Beautiful rustic feeling decor, extremely creative seasonal menu. The chicken skins were one of the best things I ever ate! Would make another trip to Charleston just to come here again

Husk is a solid restaurant and I would go back if there was no wait, but this isn't a place to wait in line for hours when there's so much other great food in Charleston. I came here for lunch with my husband and friend. We ordered the split pea hummus which was EXCELLENT and refreshing. I would definitely order that again in a heart beat. The fried chicken was a solid dinner and I enjoyed it, but the pimento cheese board was a little too much and overboard. I expected a charceuterie board but it was prepared crostini.

This place becomes a challenge to review, because the menu changes from day to day. This was my second time here and it was noticeabley better this time. It may be that the weekend chef crew is better than the weekday one, or the menu was more to my liking this time. In either case, Husk is a worthwhile experience. It's creative takes on local cuisine do not disappoint. May have been the best duck confit I have ever had. The romanesco side was also an incredible compliment to the meal.

My husband and I ate here for lunch when vacationing in Charleston. It was a nice day and we sat on an upstairs balcony which was quiet and lovely. The service was perfect, our waiter was very knowledgeable and we never had empty water glasses. I am expecting, so I decided to try one of the Shrub drinks (mango) and it was so refreshing and unique that my husband got his second vodka drink mixed with the ginger shrub. Pimento cheese appetizer and arugula salad were really delicious. Then we had shrimp and grits (awesome) and the fried chicken for entrees. I loved the rustic feeling and serving dishes. Everything was delicious, it was our favorite dining experience overall while in Charleston. Would highly recommend.

First time we’ve visited Charleston and Husk. It came recommended to us as a must eat. It definitely lived up to the hype. Reservations are a must. I would recommend allowing enough time before dinner to visit the connected bar. The area upstairs in the bar is super cute and a nice place to have drinks before dinner. We will most definitely visit again next time we are in Charleston!
