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.

Super loud - kind of ruined it for us. Food was delicious but portions were tiny and I do mean tiny. I think the catfish portion I was served was all of 4 ounces. Waitress wasn’t very attentive. Wanted to love this restaurant but was disappointed.

2nd time eating at Husk. The food at Husk is excellent. You will not get a bad meal at any downtown Charleston restaurant. I've been to most of them. At Husk we got the Confit Duck and Yellow Tail Snapper. Both were very good. The Duck with red curry sauce was really, really good. Also, get the cornbread. It's awesome. Love their philosophy of using fresh, local food. The food is always very good at Husk. Portions can be a little bit smaller than most other places but fair. Casual atmosphere is nice also. I'm a local and I could eat there repeatedly and know I'm going to get really good food.

Server, Chris S., was knowledgeable and professional. He was on target for all recommendations. The environment was wonderful and the background music was perfect. Lastly, the hostess was amazing. She stayed on her game while making you feel welcomed. Definitely a favorite of ours in Charleston. We will return.

Absolutely delicious meal, I spent a ton of money on just myself but wanted to ensure I tried everything I wanted and left feeling full. The dessert - squash cheesecake - was to die for. Everything was great, just wish the portion sizes were a bit bigger given their price points.

The quality of ingredients, flavors, service, and beverages, are all spectacular at Husk. We had a similar experience with the location in Nashville. We're particularly fond of the pork lettuce wraps, chicken and waffles, and bistro burger. The lemon drop martini and bloody Maria were both phenominal. Given that time and money for dining are limited, we'll spend as much as we can at Husk.

We were greatly anticipating our meal at husk, after not being able to get in during our last two visits to Charleston. I have to say that the food was wonderful, and the service was excellent too. Unfortunately, the noise level was highly distracting and took away from our general enjoyment of the meal.

Flavorful New Southern food in an upscale setting with fun cocktails and mocktails during our trip to Charleston. Highly recommend stopping by the Bar at Husk while you wait for your table and enjoying the charming patio and porch.

I think this place is overrated. I’ve had meals that made me feel elated that stay on my tongue for years. This one just didn’t. I wanted it to so bad and had been looking forward to coming here. The outside is gorgeous and staff was friendly but the food and drinks just fell flat of anything special for a fancy night out. Won’t be back or recommending. Nothing special about this restaurant at all. :(

The food was well prepared and very nice presentation. Portions are very small. No bread but cornbread is available to order. Very long wait between appetizers and main course. The ambiance is very nice. All in all very good but very expensive for what you get.

Definitely make a reservation or you'll never get in. Drinks were creative and delicious, and the wine list was very diverse and had good value. The entrees were fairly small, which wasn't overly surprising, but let's be honest, we all know catfish is cheaper than steak, so I was a little surprised my catfish portion was so small. Overall had a great time and enjoyed this place.

Fabulous food. Ask for Parker - he’s terrific! Bacon crumble cornbread and Vertical root salad were amazing. Amberjack was was tender and moist with butter beans and a yummy sauce. We’ll be back!
