Husk - Charleston Ratings and Reviews
Went here to eat at "THE MUST EAT HERE" if in Charleston. The Fire roasted broccoli was cold and raw. Bread plates were removed before rolls were offered. The entrées arrived and were not to bad. I then asked the server about rolls and they were promptly delivered cold and stale.
My guess is the server initially mentioned the fire roasted broccoli as his number one favorite. After he asked my opinion and I foolishly gave it, It was like my wife and I were no longer there.
Being a better guest then the server was a server, we still tipped him well.
I made our reservation a month out to be sure to get to eat dinner here; in fact we timed the trip around the Husk reservation. We got baked oysters, barbecued ribs, grouper, cornbread and dessert. It was all wonderful. After we left my husband remarked that he wanted to be sure to always eat at Husk every time we come to Charleston.
After months of waiting and actually getting a reservation at a decent time, I was severely let down. Reception was cold and abrupt, although the server was adequate and able. Menus were printed just for us acknowledging my birthday, which was nice. The Manhattan my husband ordered was the smallest I had ever seen! Our food was edible, yet nothing amazing. We skipped dessert. We overpaid significantly for the experience. We won’t go back.
From the moment i arrived at Husk I was captivated by the authenticity of the exterior of the restaurant. Upon entering, I was further appreciative of the outstanding decor that blends traditional southern ambiance with rustic and industrial pieces. The menu options, which are created daily, made I️t difficult to choose from the variety of amazing dishes. The biscuit and gravy appetizer was creamy and delicious and the biscuit was light and flavorful. The flat iron steak and fried egg brunch entree was cooked perfectly and mixed with a variety of roasted vegetables that were equally delicious. In addition, every member of the staff was sincerely gracious, accommodating and professional. In a city of outstanding restaurant options, this is a top choice. I will definitely return on my next visit to Charleston.
My boyfriend and I were in town for a wedding I was standing in and the bride recommended that we go to Husk. She gave me the heads to make the reservation as soon as possible so I made the reservation about 3 months in advance. I decided to make the dining experience even more special by taking my boyfriend there to celebrate his birthday. We had a fantastic time. The food was deliciously amazing and came out so quickly! The service was great as well. We will definitely be returning to Charleston just to eat at Husk again.
My daughter recommended Husk's Shrimp and Grits. I thought the dish was good but not extraordinary. (I much prefer Magnolia's spicy sausage and shrimp grits.) The setting is more informal than the outside of the building suggests. Reservations are hard to get, so I thought the restaurant would have a big wow factor. It does not. Probably foodies need to go once and see if they think the restaurant deserves the hype. Good but not great.
We had lunch based on a recommendation from friends. My husband had a burger which he loved. I had fried chicken, which was just okay. The rice and broccoli mixture was delish. The special Manhattan was also a hit. So, overall a good meal. Great service as well.
This is the second time that my wife and I have dined at Husk. The first time was lunch and the food quality was excellent (shrimp and grits) and portion size was fine. The other night, we went to celebrate our 51st wedding anniversary. I had the catfish. Quality of the food again was excellent. I also ate 2 of the 3 dinner rolls and butter. My complaint was that the portion size of the entree was disappointing...very small. I am not a big eater and this is one of the few times that I have left a restaurant still feeling hungry! If the entree size had been about 30% larger, I think that would have been fine.
This was not the restaurant for us and we may be unique. My husband is allergic to oranges and many of the dishes had orange juice incorporated into them. After two trips back to the kitchen to ask about salads, the chef finally said he could make something up (and it was good). Since it is a relatively limited menu, this impacted our experience. My duck confit was really good and our server was excellent. There was also no New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc - we tried two other offerings but weren't really thrilled with either. Because of the great reviews, I assume that Husk just wasn't a match for us.
Husk was the most disappointing, underwhelming and overpriced restuarant we ate at during our 5 days in Charleston. We dined at all the top spots for lunch and dinner every day and had excellent meals.
Our waiter rolled his eyes and acted very mad when we asked for our mixed green salads to come fairly unadorned. When they did arrive it was a plate of kale. I don’t ever remember ordering “mixed greens” and getting a plate of kale. Call it a kale salad! Chicken dish was fine nothing spectacular, oysters were good, appetizer of ham and biscuits served on a log took over our table. Why serve only 3 biscuits and 5 servings of ham? We ate upstairs which was quiet and lacked atmosphere. A big disappointment.
Hideously rude hostess who told us we were late for our reservation when we arrived a minute early. They moved us to an earlier time slot although I had an OpenTable email confirming the actual time. She said she gave our table away since we were “late”. Horrible.
However, the food and service were outstanding and we look forward to visiting again (but hopefully with a competent hostess).
Fabulous food as always. They've set the bar for shrimp and grits . . . and actually everything else we've eaten there. Anticipating a meal at Husk makes me feel giddy as a kid at Christmas. Really. Our waitperson was outstanding, too. She added to the ambiance and left our group smiling.
I had quail and got only couple of bones with little meet on it, together with rice and carrotts. My wife had a cheese burger with big potato wedges, and they where laying on a piece of old menue (absorb the greese?, not very applealing for this high rated restaurant). Had gritts upfront and they were really good, the rest of the food was nothing special, besides the high price. Disapointing...
We were recommended by a friend and Husk did not disappoint! We had three small children with us and grateful to the restaurant for accommodating us despite the kids being so tired. The chicken fried steak was incredible and I could live on their bread and sweet tea! We will come back if we make it to Charleston again.
Since my son moved to the Charleston area about 4 years ago; I have wanted to go to Husk. It was well worth the wait. The service was attentive without being overbearing. We shared appetizers of ribs, fried chicken skins and sautéed broccoli. Our favorite was the ribs. For dinner we tried the pork, cat fish and duck. I think everyone enjoyed all, but the duck was the best. We were really satisfied after dinner, but tried two desserts, the ice creams were fantastic and the desserts were ok. It was an amazing meal and I can’t wait to return.
Went for lunch on our anniversary. Our server, Kent, was a pleasure and really helped make it special. He knew my dietary restrictions beforehand and made wonderful suggestions. I had the quail with a delicious sauce and the most tasty vegetables I've ever had! My husband said the shrimp and grits were tied for first best he's had. I have no complaints--only compliments. Thank you, Husk!
Just can’t express how great a meal this was for our entire party of 4. I travel globally 30 weeks every year and try to eat at best restaurants everywhere I go. The meal this evening was easily in top 3 I’ve eaten in past 5 years. Don’t miss the chance to eat here.
Concept amd attention to local is there but food fell short at least as a first impression on a Tuesday night when it wasnt real busy. The cornbread was very dry and not very flavorful. The heritage pork was a combo of shoulder and belly and the belly portion was not soft and molten as expected. The shoulder pieces were just ok as well..The pureed sweet potato was luke warm. I was really surpised honestly as I was really looking forward to eating here and only heard great things about Sean Brock. While I understand that restaurants can make good money on wine and drinks, when you pay $15 for a glass of wine, i expect a little netter than a 5 ounce pour...maybe its a Charleston thing as It was the same at 2 other places...maybe just an off night for Husk? Lastly, as usual, got a lame table booked through OT...is this what I get for sticking with Opentable since I think 2000...
Nice quiet evening. Good service, very attentive. Not too crowded. Food was outstanding; varied menu withinteresting combination of ingredients and flavors. Enjoyed every bite, left the table full. Kinda pricy, but not too bad. Nice decor, was able to have a conversation without yelling. Good mood music in the background, coudl hear it but wasn't overpowering. I reccomend Husk. This was the second time we've eaten there and can't wait for the third time. Well done Husk.
