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.

Managers and staff were very attentive. We were initially in a room with several LOUD diners. They quickly set us up on the porch and we had a wonderful evening

The food and service are definitely good. The bartender was a little pretentious when someone in our party ordered but not a deal breaker. Fairly elegant meal.

This place was all it was cracked up to be. Remarkable food and exceptional service. Talk about fresh food - our table was by the back window and we watched them rolling in the whole, recently slaughtered hogs.

This is a beautiful location and the service was very charming. I know the chef is all about local and timely but menu felt somewhat limited and I would have loved for vegetable based choices. That said, the pimento cheese crostini was excellent.

Don't like to be a proverbial hater but we thought it was really overrated. Not sure why it's so popular. Appetizers were heavy and pork loin looked like head cheese and tasted like Piggly wiggly bacon.

Our waiter, Parker, was the best! He timed our service as we requested and appeared calm during the busy lunch service. The very best bloody marys, great cornbread to share at the table and the shrimp and grits were superior. Can't wait to try them at home from Brock's Heritage cookbook. Wish I didn't live across the country so I could go more often.

Husk was recommended by a friend, it is in a really neat building, we enjoyed a window table that looked out on the porch. It was nice for lunch, we had the pimento crostini, bloody Mary’s, Husk burger and fried chicken. Drinks and food were delicious. We had ordered another side that never came and did not enjoy our server but overall it was a good experience.

Pickled shrimp app excellent and plenty of it. Shared it. The flatbread accompaniment went perfectly. I had the cornmeal fried catfish. Crispy and light; wonderful rice bed with tang and crispiness. Excellent bourbon list and solid wine list. Good service and ambiance. It is pricey but worth the money. I was a tourist but did not feel like I went to a tourist trap. I felt like I went to a good restaurant with local flavor.

Nice interior at the restaurant. Service was slow, and our server was just a little too weird (looks and affectation). Hostesses weren’t particularly friendly either. Food was interesting but nothing to write home about.

Not sure what the Husk hype is about. Our worst dining experience in Charleston . The flavors are all over the place and not particularly good. Don’t get the duck it is not what you would expect and a rip off. The broccoli salad is a mixed up mish mash of weird flavors. They serve your dinners in a bowl which makes eating the entree a challenge. The food just doesn’t taste good. Service was spotty . The place is very loud, just not what you expect for so called sophisticated, southern dining. Yuck !!

Unfortunately, this restaurant is too concerned about turning tables then it is about overall customer experience. They were 25 min late in seating us and at least 5 other tables as well. Their fall back is to send people to the whiskey bar next door, but that too is overcrowded. They will continue to erode experience if they continue to try to do this. The hostess at the front was unprofessional and rude to us. She came across as arrogant and matter of fact about the whole thing. I think with the reputation and rating such as Husk, they need to do better about this initial impression.

Bartenders over in the bar building were personable and attentive... host staff was friendly, our waitress was a perfect mix of attentive but not overwhelming... she just knew when we needed something and the food from the ham biscuits to the entrees and dessert was all amazing!!! We will be back again for sure!!!

I've been to Husk on many other occasions, 2 other times for brunch. I was a little disappointed by the menu this time. The only grits were vegetarian. They were ok, but honestly, I was sad there wasn't shrimp and grits on the menu. That should pretty much be a brunch staple. Service was also on the slow side. The bloody Mary was amazing, though!
