Husk - Savannah
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.

Most amazing food and dining experience! Highly recommend!
The was our first time dining at Husk Savannah. I will start by saying, this would be a 5 star rating if the service had been better. I honestly believe this was due to our particular server. While polite, we were left waiting at every stage of the meal. It took over 5 min just to get water. It took longer than expected for service and food delivery. Service out of the way, the food was AMAZING! We travel a lot, often in search of great food. It’s been a while since we have been wowed by food. From the bread to the dessert, every bite was packed with complex layers of flavor.
We started with the raw bar oysters and snapper crudo. Both were very fresh. The oysters came with a unique crunchy peanut horseradish. The crudo was clean and fresh with a nice mild variety of habanero on top. The sourdough was freshly baked and amazing. My steak was perfectly cooked and melted in my mouth. We also tried the coal fired chicken was maybe the juiciest chicken breast I’ve ever had. A beautiful crisp on the outside as well. The sweet potato cake was perfect.
We aren’t big drinkers so we had the bartender make us each seedlip mocktsils.
The southern rustic ambiance set in a rebuilt classic mansion was clean and minimal.
I can strongly recommend this spot for a date, business meeting, or special occasion.
JUST TOTALLY GREAT
Excellent food in a quiet, small dining room away from the busier room upstairs. The appetizers and entrees were all delicious - nice take on low country cuisine. Our server was very good.
Terrible. What a shock to visit here tonight and be so disappointed after having many fine meals here in the past. We brought another couple who were visiting from out of town and our expectations were very high. The food started out great with the appetizers that set a high bar. The oysters and the sashimi were perfect as was the pimento cheese and the chicken liver. Only the squash salad wasn’t thrilling. After the first course however, things began to go downhill. First, the wait for the main course was just too long. It took about 35 to 40 minutes for the next course to be served. And they were cold. All of them. The pork loin was almost ice cold and we sent it back to be warmed up. Then we noticed that the swordfish, the pasta, and the shrimp and grits were all just as cold. Why such a long wait when each dish was served cold?
The managers reaction was impersonal but he did offer us desert on the house. We were already full by then but we did appreciate the gesture. Overall it was so disappointing that we won’t be back.
First time at Husk in Savannah - a favorite destination stop in Charleston - and although different, same funky atmosphere, good food/drinks and terrific service.
Service was extremely slow and got our orders wrong.
I was extremely disappointed in our service or lack there of. It took over an hour to get two servings of poached eggs. The food for brunch was just subpar and the service was lacking.
We had a tortallini and shrimp and grits for our mains and we're surprised at the depth of flavors. The grits were much more soup like, and was a nice twist on traditional grits. Highly recommend. We started with a selection of cheeses, and added on the pimento cheese. Both were just ok, and the crackers served with them added no additional flavor and we're a disappointment.
I had a reservation for 9:15, and we got there a little early so went up stairs to have a drink before dinner. We were asked to close out the tab about 5 min before our reservation, but were given someone else's $320 bill. 20 min later we were given the correct bill, paid, and continued to wait to be seated. It was now 20 min past our reservation, and the room had several open tables with more leaving. When the host came back, they began to take us to our table, and we assumed it was one of the booths that had just left, but we're sat at a table that was empty the entire time we were standing in the waiting area. A full 50 minutes.
When we sat, the server was friendly, but it took another 15 min to place our order. They were bus which I can understand, but my water was empty the majority of the time with only a few people tending to the guests, and the slow response left us underwhelmed with the experience.
Overall, the mains were good with a variety of price points, but the lack of attention to service was disappointing.
We had specifically requested quiet table. We arrived 10 minutes early for a 7:30 pm reservation We were made to wait till 7:50 and then sat at a table in the very noisy bar area - when we told them we had asked for a quiet table they said that was not reflected I. Reservation - even though I showed the opentable reservation Confirmation. Eventually a manager did come to apologize. But by then we were already on our appetizer course.
Food and server were solid. Need work on desserts. No one ordering - in fact overheard server pointing the couple at table next to us to go get ice cream at Leopold’s.
We were in and out in an hour - felt rushed and not an atmosphere to linger and enjoy an anniversary dinner.
We went to Husk based on prior reviews. It was not what was expected. I appreciate that chefs want to stretch the boundaries of cuisine. Husk takes southern cuisine to a level that is not good. When one orders a Caesar salad, they expect something that is akin to a Caesar salad. The diner doesn't expect sliced pumpkin and nothing that even resembles the traditional salad.
The shrimp and grits is a ripoff. The half chicken is as well. In fact, our server seemed to be apologetic in that he pointed out how well the chicken skin was grilled. I think he knew we were less than thrilled and tried to make up for the kitchen's shortcomings as both entrees were barely eaten.
Husk Savannah has a great venue. It's a beautiful space. Don't try to reinvent the freaking wheel in the kitchen. Based on other reviews, I was expected to be blown away. I wasn't. Neither was my wife.
Avoid Husk Savannah. IJS. I don't mind paying for high quality food. But $30 for a chicken leg quarter is robbery.
Amazing service, food and cocktails! Would highly recommend to anyone. The Bloody Mary was especially amazing.
Loved it!! Will be back!
Food was amazing with a creative twist. A definite must try.
Food was excellent. Service slow and inattentive. Need more servers so they can take drink orders and food orders without 30 minute gaps.
Amazing space. Superior service. Excellent food. Boom.
Great service and great food. Very relaxing.
Tasteful and imaginative atmosphere, friendly service though a tad slow, excellent food for its taste and interesting combinations. We tried the tuna, liver pate, and pimento cheese appetizers. Mains were beef, swordfish and scallops. All reports were very favorable. Only warning — portions were suitable for fine dining but on the small side if you are really hungry. Will definitely return!
Disappointed. Server was inattentive; we waited 45 min after being seated to order dinner. Food was underwhelming considering the reputation and hype. My NY Strip Steak was the portion size of an appetizer not a main course and the wine pours were skimpy considering the price. The dessert was actually good but by that time the damage had already been done.
Husk is my go-to lunch location when I want to have some time with a friend to chat- the perfect place to enjoy local foods and the company
This time the music was too loud for lunchtime and the server was more present than I would have wished- great food however
Amazing. Beautiful food made with lots of love.
Very interesting food and cocktail menus. Great ambiance in the upper dining area near the bar, particularly in the booths.
Honestly, one of the best meals I’ve ever had. Solid, experienced and knowledgeable staff who were welcoming and gracious and truly excited by the menu offerings. Lovely, open space which allowed for quiet conversations instead of yelling over the din. Well worth the visit and I will be back again.
6 of us came from Houston for the marathon and went to Husk for Sunday brunch. The service was pleasant and informative, the ambiance was gorgeous and the food was inventive and delicious.
Excellent food and service! We will definitely be back again. We bought one of their cookbooks the food was so good.
A must stop in Savannah. Loved our dinner. Loved our waitress.
I've had the pleasure of eating at various high end places around the country and plain and simple Husk is trying too hard. $8 for four slices of bread prior to your meal? $34 for two slivers of pork? Food was okay but the overall experience is contrived. We were really excited about the reservation but left with a feeling of let-down.
Had an excellent time there. They have creative, very tasty food and great cocktails. One thing they do nicely is provide non-alcoholic cocktails that are also creative, my teens loved them. The place is pricy but for a special occasion it is worth it.
Amazing high quality food. Great server - attentive and friendly.
Great waitress and food!! Sat on the porch which was nice.
Beautiful venue, interesting menu. Food was delish. Super slow to get first cocktail. Portions a bit on small size.
Very disappointed in this restaurant as the food portions were tiny
Very helpful and attentive waitstaff. Portions were relatively small but everyone was happy with the items they ordered.
Outstanding. Husk is our favorite restaurant in Charleston and the Savannah location did not disappoint! Great detail in the flavorful, intriguing food and excellent service. Check out the beautiful bar upstairs.
Husk is located in a beautifully renovated mansion (it may have been the BPOE lodge as etched in the cement outside) and serves outstanding food.
We started by sampling six types of local oysters; shared the Kachina Farm Greens salad with whipped Clemson Blue, GA, Pecan, Apple, and Marigold, which was fresh and delicious; and I had the GA Shrimp and Grits (with a Farm Egg, Kale, and Sweet Peppers) and my husband had an "off the menu" pasta with pecans, which we were told about when we asked if there were any specials. Both entrees were terrific. The shrimp and grits was the best I've had in my life!
Service was a little slow, we waited five minutes to be asked for our drink order. The cocktails were skimpy. Our server was knowledgeable and paired us with a a glass of red (Cabernet for the pasta) and glass of white wine (Chablis for the shrimp). Wine was perfect but the pours again were skimpy. Would also have been nice to know the wine makers beyond the grapes we requested.
I enjoyed my first visit to Husk very much. I especially like the Benne wafers that came with the pimento cheese and charcuterie board. My daughter loved the oysters. I had shrimp and grits that were good, but the best I have ever had. The pimento cheese was excellent.
We had a phenomenal experience! Everyone from the moment of arrival was engaging and interested in our experience. Heather (manager) was very nice helping us get our table after a drink at the bar. Our server Santo Delio was a lot of fun, gracious and helpful. Our dinners (swordfish and scallops) were amazing. Thanks again.
I was pretty disappointed with Husk Savannah after having experienced Husk Charleston. Charleston was exceptional, whereas Savannah was not. The service was sub par, you have to pay for your bread, and the flavours were just not there. Considering how much it cost, I was really, really disappointed. I had the squash ceasar appetizer. It was ok but could have been more flavourful, the squash should have been shaved paper thin and treated in some way (i.e. marinated). The entree was chicken with charged cabbage. The cabbage was delicious but the chicken was dry and lacked a sweet element. Overall a 3 out of 5.
We expected a much better restaurant than we found based on reviews on Trip Advisor. A very limited menu listed only 6 entrees consisting of 1 beef, 1 chicken, 1 seafood, 1 pork, and 2 vegetarian dishes. My wife had the shrimp and grits and I had the beef. An order of sweet potatoes and sourdough bread was an extra charge of $8 for each. The bread was 4 slices of warmed bread. The potato dish was good, but the bread was only fair and very overpriced. The shrimp and grits were not very good compared to other fine restaurants in Savannah. The beef was a top sirloin and cooked to the chef’s recommendation. I have had much better beef at Golden Coral and other modestly priced restaurants. It was very tough and very salty.
This restaurant is overrated and overpriced! We will not return as we found multiple better restaurants in Savannah.
