Fabulous all the way around! Great bar for after dinner!
Wonderful meal. Great pork variations. Good friendfly service.
We went for lunch. Everyone was raving. The food was great! We had a late lunch downstairs it was a little smokey inside. Everything else was great.
We had 1:30lunch reservations and were greeted warmly and promptly. Every staff member we encountered was very down to earth and friendly. I will say that Husk lived up to the hype. We had heard good things and had high expectations. The menu is limited and changes daily so everything is fresh. I had shrimp and grits, which was terrific. My husband had the cheeseburger which he said was excellent. For appetizer, we had the pimento cheese crostini, which was very flavorful. Since they are so popular and busy, we thought we may be rushed, but, Kevin, our server, paced the meal well and we took our time to enjoy the strawberry sundae for dessert which Kevin recommended—excellent choice! We had an excellent glass of Pinot Noir which led to another glass (should have gotten a bottle, it was that good.). Overall, it was a very good experience and we will return the next time we’re in Charleston.
We went to Husk for dinner on the last night of our trip to Charleston - we saved this for our last meal as we heard nothing but amazing things but we were quite disappointed.
The fish entree (grouper) was fishy, overcooked and served on peas and sauce that tasted like what dirty salty dishwater might taste like. The fried oysters were served on a platter of huge pieces of sea salt (made to look like crushed ice) but some of the salt was on the oyster's - it was impossible to dig all the pieces out and that was very off-putting. The chicken breast was good and cooked perfectly, but was nothing special. The cast iron cornbread was salty and not sweet - our favorite parts of the meal were the pre-dinner rolls which were excellent.
Very sad to say, but don't waste your money. With drinks, the above came out to $200 after tip and we enjoyed many other places in the area much more (Magnolia's Pawpaw, Raw 167 to name a few) - and Husk not only didn't live up to the hype, it was just below average.
Service was great and our waiter was helpful and accommodated allergies and helped us with the beer and wine menu.
We're from LA so we have our fair share of really good restaurants. We dined at 3 other places during our time in Charleston and Husk was our favorite. Love the local ingredients (and emphasis on same), really enjoyed the wood fired oysters and catfish, our waitress was chill yet attentive to every detail. Can't wait to go back !
This restaurant deserves all the accolades. Really outstanding food from appetizers to dessert.
We were on vacation in Charleston and we couldn't leave without eating at Husk. I had been looking forward to this meal, and it did NOT disappoint. We decided to order a bunch of appetizers, tapas-style. We had country ham with biscuits and house made pickles, arugula and beet salad, General Tso's glazed pig's ear lettuce wraps, southern fried chicken skins, and cornbread. The southern fried chicken skins were my favorite!
This included a very creative recipe. Great venue and service. Husk's excellent reputation and reviews are well earned. If you are in Charleston treat yourself!
The food was literally the best food I have ever ate! Ever! We ordered shrimp for an appetizer and the T-bone steak for our entree. The steak was unbelievably good!! Highly recommend this restaurant.
I looked forward to this meal ever since hearing about Husk several years ago. I was thrilled to get a lunch reservation on our quick trip to Charleston. I was completely pleased with my meal -- skirt steak with arugula and mashed potatoes. My husband LOVED his shrimp and grits. We both enjoyed our skillet of cornbread more than anything! I truly recommend this restaurant if you are lucky enough to land a reservation!
the duck leg meal was great so was the corn bread it was all delicious desert strawberry sundae was great
I own Sean Brocks cookbook and I love it. I am also a chef and do a lot of the same style of cooking with a lot of low country influence growing up in Savannah, currently living in Knoxville TN. Last weekend I had the opportunity to visit Charleston after 10 years and number one on my list was to try and get reservations at Husk. Sitting on Folly beach I managed to score the last available reservation for 6pm. My girlfriend and I were ecstatic as I have been talking Sean up since we first tried out the butter bean chow chow from his esteemed cookbook. Never have I ever been more excited to dine somewhere in my life only to be severely disappointed. I am always one to try as many things on the menu as my gut can bear when I’m excited about my dining experience, this time was no different. Remembering the G tso’s pig ears from the cookbook we started with those. Albeit I’m pretty sure I’m the book they were sweetbreads, I would have much rather had those. The pig ears tasted nothing more than some super hard cracklins that kind of jabbed your gums while trying to eat them while I tried desperately to get the hint of general tso’s flavor we all love. The pickled cucumbers tasted like an afterthought and were hard to appreciate over the dissapointing and painful slivers of pig cartiledge. My girlfriend wouldn’t even eat more than one lettuce wrap full. Next up was the beef tartare. Again the enchanting thoughtfulness and true to the south diligence I remember from his book made me go with this choice as it was packed with I’m sure, house made pickled ramps, “local mushrooms” and lemon preserves. It was a stretch for my date but I couldn’t even finish it. The cracker it was served with really took away from the subtle flavor of the tartare which was poorly seasoned lacking the acid I had hoped for. Next up we’re entrees. They didn’t suck but weren’t anything I couldn’t whip up in my gf’s apartment in a couple hours. Chicken skins were a bust as well. Out of room. 👎🏼
Excellent service and food options. What we had was very good.
best cheeseburger i’ve ever had
My boyfriend and I went to Husk for our anniversary. We had a 9:15pm reservation so spent some time in the bar beforehand. The bar was definitely the highlight of our experience and we would definitely recommend it! The atmosphere was great, the service was wonderful and the drinks were delicious. We were less than impressed by our dining experience. The atmosphere was okay, the food was good, but the service and the “hype” of the restaurant’s reputation did not meet our standards. Overall, we were glad we went, but would only go back to the bar area for drinks and bar snacks.
Best fried chicken ever. Shrimp and grits also great. Ask to sit in the upper porch.
Amazing meal, but a very limited menu.
Very disappointing! We reserved a dinner at Husk for a 60th Birthday. The pork chop I ordered was tough and tasteless and the other entry, the snapper, was very average. Again, we really looked forward to dining here and left with a very bad impression of what was suppose to be the top restaurant in the south!
Loved my appetizer of country ham with wonderful biscuits, & housemade pickles. My entree of pork with pit-smoked butterbeans with cornbread croutons was delicous. Great service, nice atmosphere, great cocktails.
Very innovative and ever evolving menu. All local ingredients. Wonderful catfish dish and definitely unique flavors.
Delicious food, attentive waitstaff, beautiful dining room. Favorite restaurant in Charleston!
The food was literally transcendent. The service was good, but not up to the quality of the food. To be fair, I think our server was jammed up about something.
My friend and I were very excited to try Husk after we read the raving reviews about the restaurant while we were in Charleston. However, we were extremely disappointed with the experience. When we arrived, we met with the hostess and advised her that we had a reservation. She told us that we would need to wait for a bit until our table is ready, so she suggested we go to the bar next door. The bartenders were busy, but certainly had the opportunity to greet us and provide us with menus to look over the drink options. Instead, they ignored us for over 5 minutes. When one of them finally did acknowledge us, I asked if there was another bar upstairs and he replied, rudely, that it was just more people. When we went into the restaurant and were seated, the server was less than friendly or welcoming. She did not talk to us about the menu or the specialities. We were seated at 9:30 PM, which became clear was their last seating of the evening. We ordered an appetizer, a shared salad, and each of us ordered the strip steak. The appetizer and salad arrived at the same time and our entrees showed up about 10 minutes later. Additionally, the wine menu lacked options if you were only interested in getting a glass of wine. The only Cabernet on the menu that was available as a glass was $19. Sadly, the food was not well prepared. The sauce for the strip steak was overpowering and the vegetables were overly salted. The cornbread lacked flavor. The salad was mediocre. The only redeeming part of the meal was the appetizer. Overall, we were very disappointed with our experience. We ate in a number of restaurants during our visit to Charleston and thought that the pretentious attitude of the server, the bartender, and the rude attitude the hostess gave to people who came in without a reservation was unbecoming. It made the overall experience very disappointing for us. Clearly the restaurant staff no longer feel the need to earn the reputation and are simply riding its coattails.
Second time at Husk. Love what they do to food, especially fried chicken skins. Unique restaurant. Waiter was very pleasant.
Lovely venue, great service and fantastic food. Would recommend to anyone visiting Charleston.
Chris our server was perfect! The flavor profiles were home runs
The food is amazing! The waiters are very informative of the food and beverages. Best fried chicken I've ever had. The location is on quiet street and the ambiance is great! They change their menus daily so you know the ingredients are super fresh. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Charleston.
The food was delicious and the service was amazing.
Best hamburger I’ve ever had! Also, dessert was unreal! Definitely coming back
We had a late reservation since that was all that was available and when we were seated upstairs, the volume of the place was vibrating to floors. A number of large groups seated near us were having a very good time. Our waiter was superb - very knowledgeable about the menu (loved the recommendation of the RC glazed duck) and was responsive to us. As the other diners started to leave, we began to relax and enjoy the lovely dining room.
I was a little disappointed in my experience at Husk. I ordered the pork chop and when I cut into the chop it was still nearly raw in the middle. The waiter did take it back and it was the proper temperature when returned but I was disappointed that we weren’t offered a drink or dessert. I don’t expect the restaurant to fully comp the meal but the server could have offered something. I don’t live locally but if I returned to Charleston I don’t know that I would go back
Loved everything about this place except for the acoustics. It was a busy Saturday night and the volume increased the later it got. Aside from that, the food was creative and amazing. Our server was helpful, patient and sweet. And the attention to detail outstanding. Beautiful ceramic plates, silverware replaced with each course and the restaurant itself a renovated historic home. I had the tilefish which was delicious served with smoky vegetables and a crumble of brown butter/nuts which rehydrated in the broth that the fish was in. My sweetheart had the pork chop which he basically inhaled.
Dessert was a combo of grapefruit sorbet and sorghum cake; a teeny tiny serving so don’t plan on sharing! Expensive? Yes. Worth it? We thought so.
Husk lived up to its reputation! delicious, complex and interesting food in a simple but refined atmosphere. the restaurant is in a beautiful old colonial mansion. loved it.
Our server, I think his name was Jeremy, was attentive without hovering. He shared, with a sense of pride, the sourcing of the food prepared at Husk. The pimento cheese appetizer my friend and I shared was beyond describing, delicious doesn't even come close...who knew I liked pimento cheese this much? Prepared like this on crostinis...THIS GIRL!!
Nice. Beautiful place, nice setting, great service
Lunch was incredible here. We had the pulled pork pork boy, the fried chicken, and the mushroom Farro. Everything was so delicious and I loved that they let you know exactly where the ingredients are sourced.
Drinks, appetizers and entrees were awesome. The only thing subpar was dessert, it looked beautiful but the blondie was hard as a rock. Either old or just over done.
Great sweet pea hummus!
My pork belly sandwich was excellent! Creative menu with locally sourced ingredients. Knowledgeable server was very helpful. Would love to go back for dinner.
