Husk - Charleston Ratings and Reviews
Started off lovely - special menu and care in seating me. Fabulous descriptions of food and preparation - obviously took pride in chef and prep. My app was amazing - oyster stew. And corn bread to die for served in a skillet. But then the service was so very blah, and I couldn’t get my waiter’s attention after that. I could barely get a water refill. My main was a very salty, fatty pork with no nuance or depth. That was disappointing. They redeemed themselves again at dessert when I asked for just ice cream and it came beautifully plated on a cushion of gingerbread crumbs. Lovely. But for over $100 with a single cocktail and no wine, it just wasn’t all that.
The food was good, but did not live up to all the "hype". My main course, which sounded like chicken and dumplings, was only "fair" (ok, it was just chicken, but nothing like chicken and dumplings...watery style, flavorless sauce). The appetizer portions were quite large (enough to share), but the waiter didn't tell us, so we were already full before the main course. That is the only reason I marked down the "Service" rating.
For years I have heard the hype about this place, and they had a reservation while we were in town available so we booked it, but I must say, it was nothing super special. The food was okay but many other Charleston restaurants are better imo. Cool place though and the bar next door was beautiful!
Husk had been highly recommend to us and we came in with high expectations. Unfortunately, the expectations were not met. We ordered oysters, a pork dish, and confit duck leg. The oysters were okay but didn't have the saltiness you would expect. My duck was fantastic, I would order that again in a heartbeat. My husband's pork dish was awful. It was bland with murky flavors.
The biggest disappointment was the service. We were extremely rushed by the waitress. We had barely sat down when she wanted to know what we wanted from the bar. The rest of the meal followed suit. She just seemed very annoyed to be serving us. Everywhere else we went in Charleston had amazing service, so the service here stuck out as particularly bad. Hope we caught them on an off day. If my duck was any indication of what the experience could be, it's a shame that we had the experience we did.
Wonderful evening with my husband. In Charleston for a wedding and this was the only dinner we could dine out alone. It was a pre-birthday dinner for him and I am sure he will want to return very soon!!
Close to our favorite and I am sure it will be added to our must dine
Place and service was nice. Split on the taste of the food. For the appetizer, the was amazing. The pork with the Napa Cabbage, Carrots and Chilly was good but not amazing since the pork was not as tender. The chicken and dumplings dish was good. The chicken was very tender, but it lacked a little bit of taste. The cornbread on the side and the rolls were really good, specially with the pork fat butter. Will definitely to comeback to at least try the other dishes.
It was fine. Nothing particularly great about any of the dishes we ordered. The fried chicken skins didn’t taste like much and were made soggy by the so-so pimento “ranch” – definitely order the sauce on the side. The catfish was well-prepared but the veggies with it were drowning in sauce. The pork chop was good but the side vegetables were, again, overwhelmed by 1-2 flavors rather than letting the vegetables shine. And the cornbread tasted too smoky to enjoy. The rolls they brought out before dinner, though? GLORIOUS. BEST PART OF THE MEAL. I would sit through this otherwise okay meal all over again for those incredible rolls.
I made the res for Husk through Open Table some time ago when I knew we were going to Charleston. My hub and I said that the food was most unusual and very tasty. The flavors were complex and delicious. I stuck with the appetizers and my husband had the oysters and the trout. ALL DELICIOUS. We are savory people, so did not try the desserts. Enjoyed every bite!
It used to be one of our favorite Charleston restaurants. Disappointed we had a reservation but still waited 30 min as walk ins who were on wait list were seated. When I finally asked about our table I was twice told it was being set. 20 min later still not seated.
The food was fine - I had shrimp and grits. Grits were lumpy and cold. My son had a version of a cuban - huge roll without a lot of filling.
One of my favorite meals in Charleston. This restaurant deserves the hype it receives. The flavors are spot on and the presentations add to the experience. The pig ear lettuce wraps, pork belly, and shrimp and grits all delivered. I would absolutely go back. If you are vacationing make your reservation in advance because this place fills up quick.
It's our third time at Husk - when friends come from out of town, they want to go there. It doesn't live up to the hype. The food is short of being exceptional and there are too many exceptional meals to be had around Charleston to settle or pay that price tag. Go to the Bar at Husk and have some outstanding cocktails and an incredible burger. You and your wallet will thank me.
