Southern
Husk Savannah, the fourth outpost by the Neighborhood Dining Group
highlights the unique ingredients of coastal Georgia. Located on W. Oglethorpe St. in the heart of
Savannah’s Landmark Historic District, the restaurant is situated on what is known to be one of the most
haunted blocks in the city. Originally built in 1898, the building has a vibrant history and plenty of (ghost)
stories to share. The cuisine of Husk Savannah upholds a strictly Southern philosophy –
working with local farmers and purveyors for a menu of exclusively Southern-grown ingredients.
Tried-and-true techniques of seed-saving, heirloom husbandry, in-house pickling and charcuterie
programs by the culinary team are the basis of Husk’s offerings with a menu that changes twice daily.

Thought food was just okay. I had the pork which was tasty but overpriced for what you received. The cornbread was terrible. It was beyond dry and was flavorless. The space is beautiful and open. But overall not worth it so I won’t be going back.

I understand the menu changes daily but need more variety especially for vegetarians. Salad were old greens. Extensive wine selections but far too complicated for an average patron. A beautiful venue but menu didn’t match expectations. I think if the owners and management would look at lunch numbers, that should be an eye opening. From 12-1:30 pm our booth of 3 may have been only customers .

I definitely would recommend Husk - Savannah to any friend, including chefs. The hospitality was top-notch, the room was delightful, and the food exceeded our every expectation. Don't miss the charcuterie board or raw oysters, as both were as fresh as they could be and delicious. As a bonus, the wine list, while relatively condensed, offered a good number of appealing choices, all priced very fairly.

We had gone to Husk in Charleston and decided to try it in Savannah. The meal was extraordinary - local ingredients, beautifully put together. The charcuterie first course is wonderful and not like anything you’ve had before: the mortadella with local pecans was not at all like mortadella in Italy, but simply delicious nonetheless. We had duck and pork main courses, each better than the other. Carrot cake for dessert - sublime. If you are ever in Savannah, it’s worth the trip

lovely home and bar scene, really knowledgeable barkeeper (our guest was a sommelier and she was very impressed too), swordfish was too thin and dry, hard to keep it moist with that thickness so not surprised, better to double the price and the the thickness, willing to pay the higher price for the local fare, thanks for keeping your farmers in business! I try to do that in Carteret County NC, good job. my shrimp and grits was great. Guests were happy too, thanks!

The service was wonderful at husk. However we were 5 people and all five people
Were very dissatisfied with our meals. Each and ever meal was like warm and the meat was undecooked and very tough. Once we told the waitress about how displeased we were she only came back to bring us the bill. One would expect with what was thought to be one of the better restaurants here in savannah the food would have been superb.

We were sat in a downstairs room, which was nice - but nothing compared to the impressive upstairs. We saw that as we went upstairs to use the restroom. Make sure you ask to be seated upstairs - it would have been a very different experience.

Our waiter was terrific, but the speed of the kitchen was glacial. We arrived promptly at our reservation time of 9:00, but our food did not arrive u til after 10:30. While waiting, Glasses of wine took 20 minutes to arrive.
I observed 6 waiters outside the kitchen waiting for their orders to come up, and many have-completed dishes waiting on the heated table.
Poor management and coordination.

My boyfriend and I had a reservation the day before St. Patrick's Day, the same day as the parade. We thought it would be packed but we were pleasantly surprised it wasn't. We asked to sit on the patio so we could watch some of the parade and the folks decked out in their green gear. Our waiter, Justin, was super knowledgeable and helpful, also attentive. We both enjoyed breakfast cocktails along with our brunch (corned beef and the country plate). Overall very impressed with the food, service and ambiance. It was a great way to start off the day.

Delicious food in a beautiful setting, but service was soooo slow. We were there for lunch and the restaurant was perhaps a quarter full, but we waited 45 minutes for our food, and the server never even attempted to explain, or apologize for, the delay. After we finished eating, we waited another 20 minutes before the table was cleared or the check offered. A very different experience from the consistently excellent Husk location in Charleston.

This may be the best restaurant I have ever visited. Literally everything we ate was incredible. At some points I didn't want to take my last bite of food, because I didn't want the meal to end. Must must must visit.

Husk has gotten a lot of press, but perhaps there are too many of them now to be unique. Or, perhaps Sean is too much of a celeb. We went to lunch expecting all kinds of interesting, very Southern foods, but the menu was super limited - like three items and some did not a lunch make. We had the ham - which is not Southern salty thin-sliced ham, but more like prosciutto - with biscuits and some maple syrup. We also got an order of fried chicken which was more than tangy - very hot, actually. Perhaps if that had been made clear on the menu, it would not be so off-putting. The only other option was a burger. Hmmmm....Not worth the cost of $60 (which I should say also included a glass of sub par rose.) Just completely underwhelmed. Perhaps dinner is where the real show is - We've been to the one in Greenville, SC and in Charleston, SC. for dinner and --- I can't remember so it's not fair to say anything about those experiences.

Once you find a parking place on street, a lovely entrance with the usual blackboard listing the sources/locations of all the foods, then the option of inside or porch..we opted in for bug avoidance. Very low key, description of the menu & appreciated the server's caution of the spice/heat of the fried ci chicken that my friend chose along with creamy grits she loved, sunchokes not so much my taste. I chose the duck confit which was delicious accompanied by fingerling potatoes & oyster mushrooms...the latter were slimy. No dessert tho offered as we had Leopold's on our radar despite the line ! Service was slow, had to ask for refill of sweet tea, very strong, not as sweet as I like. Server never came during the meal to ask what we thought, she was lucky to get the 20% tip in cash I left, undeserved.

We were seated almost a half hour past our reservation and food arrived over an hour past our reservation. The bar is very noisy, where we waited to be seated. Service was very slow. The waiter "didn't realize" that we were seated so late...duh! Food was mediocre.

The meal started off well with cocktails and a seafood tower made to order as it was a weekday and not officially on the menu. The service was excellent. Mixed reviews on the appetizers: The charcuterie plate in particular was a disappointment. The mains were also just so-so, which was a surprise given the many great reviews. I’d go back for the beautiful setting, cocktails and raw bar but stop there.

We were celebrating our anniversary in Savannah, so it was a must to check out Husk. We were greeted and directed to the bar upstairs before sitting at our dining table. The bar itself was pretty spectacular and our bartender made us the most fabulous mezcal cocktail. It was killer, though the name escapes me, perhaps we had one too many? The oysters were nothing short of spectacular. My boyfriend had to talk me into ordering something else off of the menu before I cleaned Husk out of all of their oysters. Susan, our server, was incredibly warm and attentive, as was every other member of Husk we interacted with. Lastly, the carrot cake. I CANNOT stress to you how unbelievable this carrot cake was. Ah, and I mustn't forget the atmosphere of the dining room, I was absolutely smitten with it's inviting and charming feel. The entire experience was wonderful and certainly memorable. We very much enjoyed ourselves.

The service was really terrible. Our side arrived after we finished our dinner. The beer that we ordered came pretty much at the end of the meal. My daughter had been talked into or suggested at least to have a glass of wine which when she tried it she did not like it. We told the waiter that and he took it away, but he charged us for it. Everything seemed very disorganized and helter-skelter. It was also the most expensive meal we had in Savannah and probably the worst. I could not recommend this place and wonder where it's positive reviews come from.

Overall, our experience was very positive.
The service was impeccable and thoughtful, the drinks were a good value for the pour, and the restaurant itself was beautiful.
We were seated in the bar area and the noise level was relatively high. Our first course was fantastic. Truly fantastic. Popped sorghum on sorghum glazed ribs. The plate was clean in seconds. Our entrees were wonderful as well, but not nearly as impressive. While they were perfectly executed, the composition of the dishes felt rather one-note. My pork dish tasted strongly of it’s burnt honey glaze, but really of nothing else despite the dish having many other elements. My wife’s steak, was a beautiful cut of meat that was again perfectly cooked, but it’s black garlic chimichurri felt lackluster. We did send our skillet cornbread back for being excessively salty. I understand it shouldn’t be sweet, as authentic southern cornbread hardly ever is, but it should not be so salty that the wonderful airy texture and fragrance of the again perfectly cooked cornbread cannot be enjoyed. Our server was fantastic. Attentive, professional, and friendly like everyone else on staff we interacted with.

Overall, we were not disappointed and will return. I believe the chefs and are exceptionally talented people that very obviously know how to cook, but may need to taste what they send out a little more often. I don’t mean to downplay their work at all though. Much respect to the chefs, front of house, Mr. Brock and the work they do. This was a truly fantastic meal, that could have easily been perfect, and was well worth the money spent.
