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.

We were seated on the side porch outside after being told we could not go upstairs. The porch was quiet and no ambiance for 2 friends looking entertainment. We were the only ones outside! After dinner we went upstairs and there was PLENTY of room and felt we had been cheated on what could have been a much more pleasurable dining experience!
Beautiful restaurant. Food was very different but delicious. We had a squash Caesar salad that sounded weird but was absolutely fabulous! I also had pecan tortellini that were to die for. Portions were a little small but flavors were amazing.
Husk was absolutely amazing! We got there a bit early and grabbed a drink in the upstairs bar. The ambiance was fantastic in the grandiose room. When we got to our table we were greeted with special menus for us to celebrate our recent wedding. We ordered the seafood tower, including oysters, caviar, shrimp, tuna sashimi, etc. we then ordered two delicious and unique seafood dishes for our main meal. Everything from the ambiance, service, and food was impeccable. Would go here again in a heartbeat!
Highly recommended! Inventive cuisine that was delicious, excellent service, and great wine
Menus changes daily so not the one we had reviewed.
Disappointed in no fried chicken but shrimp and grits were superb.
Great, inventive food in a fun environment
Enjoyed everything about the restaurant with these exceptions:
1. We were seated at the bar area and it was very noisy
2. We weren’t told we could have ordered bread if we wanted it
The service was very slow. We had been warned about it by a couple who had eaten there the night before but we almost had decided to leave before the main course finally arrived. I wont be back.
What a wonderful anniversary dinner! Our knowledgeable server was excellent. Every little detail of the meal was outstanding. The menu changes daily and they even printed on ours "Happy Anniversary." The explanations of what each entrée was, helped us decide what we would enjoy. Each course was absolutely delicious and so beautifully presented. Dessert was divine. Our time in Savannah was capped off with this wonderful restaurant.
The pecan tortollini was an amazing dish! Loved the bar area as well as the more quiet rooms available for a really lovely dining experience!
Fantastic dining experience. Delicious food & great service!
We had a wonderful meal at Husk. The sommelier helped us pick out a nice bottle of wine. We started with pimento cheese which was amazing. For mains we had the scallops and beef. Both plates were incredible and perfectly prepared.
Husk in Charleston is a family favorite. Was hoping for the same experience in Savannah. Might have been a except for the 30-45 min wait between courses, which was way too long for a party of 4 to who weren’t drinking. Some of our entrees came out at room temperature at best. The restaurant wasn’t even that busy. No reason dinner for 4 should have taken 2.5 hours. Food was good. Our server was nice. Not sure why so slow, but not a fan it being painfully slow. We were considering dessert and coffee, but as we weren’t staying in Savannah and had an hour drive back, we decided not to chance it being another hour until we could leave. Please allow a lot of time to your meal if your considering Husk Savannah.
Food was not the quality I would expect for the price. Just okay. Save you money and eat somewhere else. Beautiful building though
Great food and presentation. All of it was delicious. Vegan mornings butter—delish. Who knew? Sat on the porch outside which was nice.
The food is outstanding and incredibly creative. The problem was it took exactly 60 minutes from the time we sat down to receive our order. Also the wines pours keep getting smaller, only 5 ounces.
We went for brunch . Best hot chicken and grits !
Had reservation at 8:45 went early to have a drink were told bar was full but they did find us high top to sit for drink. Waited until 9:15 to ask again about the table which was not ready until around 9:25. You could tell they were very busy. Nice server came told us specials we asked to have our wine served and to give us a few minutes. We were left waiting for over 20 min at that point one the members of our table was so hungry she went to find our server who was obviously overworked! We asked to have some corn bread so that we would have something to snack on immediately. Dinner took a very long time! We did not eat until about 10:30 or so and it was good but nothing extraordinary. The ribeye special had too much fat, the okra didn’t have much flavor and the 4 of us foodies could not find a dessert we would like to try which was troublesome. This was our second time here, a huge disappointment and our friends whom we had brag about this place were even more disappointed! I recommend in the future not to give so many reservations or have more cooking and serving staff! Thanks!
I had a great dinner with a friend here this past weekend and it was our 1 st time to Husk... I’m a big foodie from Chicago and now Florida I will say I was VERY impressed with the food and service the only negative I can say is if your going to have a romantic or more private dinner this is not the place.
Seating is VERY. Lose so close that we lost track of our conversation while hearing our neighbors a foot away. Decor is adorable and lighting was great service was spot on so other than the fact your getting to know your neighbor and their life story well it will be somewhere we more then likely will revisit... maybe sit at the bar next time ... since it’s about the same.
Oh and one last thing it is a bit of climbing involved so if you or your guest has a walking disability or bad leg/ hip etc I suggest you use the elevator as you can’t get to the sining area other then a 2 flight stairwell if not.
Savannah is amazing and I would recommend this restaurant just to see some of its great chefs at work.
Great fried chicken. The upstairs bar was great. Enjoyed our meal.
We ate at Husk in Charleston and loved it. I didn’t see that on weekends only brunch is served on the weekends. The selection was small and as it was 12:30 we expected lunch. I ordered French toast and received one piece cut in half, plated beautifully. I, sure it was a fluke but we were disappointed.
I couldn't help but feel like this restaurant is resting on the hype. For the price, I would expect better service. We waited a long time for the waiter to first see us, we had questions and needed another minute before ordering and then the waiter did not come back for 15 minutes. Overall it was over an hour from when we got seated to when our entrees arrived.
The food was good, but it was not outstanding like I was expecting. Husband ordered the trout and I can honestly say I thought it was gross and bland at the same time. I had the shrimp and grits which were nice enough, but on par with what I ordered in a neighborhood cafe the next day for less than half the price and less than half the wait!
The actual building itself is truly amazing. Very cool decor and atmosphere.
Maybe we just ordered wrong or caught the service on a bad night but I would not come back. If you really must, then order some drinks and oysters at the bar and go somewhere else for dinner.
The menu had too many creative and interesting choices to pick for one night. The wine list was excellent. The server was very knowledgeable about the ingredients in the food, preparation and the wine list. A great experience.
Great experience at Husk! The food was amazing but smaller portions for the price. Overall, we would go again for the amazing experience, setting, and taste of food. The cornbread was a larger portion and went great with the meals we chose!
Fantastic food. Our server was incredibly knowledgeable! The restaurant was gorgeous. It was a fantastic dining experience!
Food was excellent. Our server was not engaging, seemed to just do the bare minimum. Not bad service, just not what it should have been at a place like Husk. All other staff was great.
Great food, great service and great setting! Vegetarian and gluten free friendly! Don’t miss!
Love Husk Savannah. They sure know how to make bar drinks and the food is amazing.
My only disappointment was NO steak tartare on this trip. I think you should always have one. That said the PL caviar is a good substitute for me. Now if you did steak tartare you could have a steak tartare/ Caviar combo called Surf and turf. 😀
Beautiful food. Our waitress helped us order without going overboard with our appetite. We would have gotten much more but she cautioned us to hold off on one of the huge portion breakfasts. We were there for Brunch and we were the first ones there at 10:00am. That was great for me because we didn't have the noise with a busy restaurant. It was hoping as we left.
My favorite Savannah spot. Terrific service , amazing food , nothing but praise for Husk!
Wonderful meal from start to finish. We were celebrating our anniversary and our menus had a special message for us printed at the top. The food and service were incredible.
The waitress we had we did not care for at all.
Amazing experience! The food and service was absolutely impeccable. The menu was new yet familiar and the shrimp and grits was to die for!
We loved our experience at Husk. Sean Brock's mission of bringing back the seeds and ingredients from generations ago to bring us food that tastes like your grandmother makes this place well worth the trip. There is flavor in those meals that you can't find elsewhere, and we loved everything we ordered. The service was top-notch and the renovated building is beautiful. Loved it!
We have been to Husk 3-4 times. Each previous meal was excellent. This time we were very underwhelmed. The ambiance was excellent as usual (actually better than our last visit because they got rid of the TV's that were hung above the bar). Our waitress was very nice and adequately attentive, but was wearing a sleeveless shirt. It was a nice shirt....but seeing someone's armpits doesn't exactly fit my expectation of the price point. I ordered the beef dish. For $36 I received four 4" x 1/2" strips of hanger steak, two silver dollar sized potato cakes, and 5-6 small pieces of mushroom. It was cooked and seasoned very well. The potato cakes were excellent. I typically don't eat all of a meal when I eat out, but this felt like I had just had an appetizer. When we were done with our meal we actually went to another restaurant and had a second dinner. I know Chef Brock isn't involved with the restaurant anymore, so I am assuming the significant change in menu is related to the influence of the group that now controls it......Too many other contemporary fine dining experiences with more value to recommend Husk. It's a shame because the renovation is beautiful and I really liked Chef Brock's concept.
The service and food were outstanding!! Loved it!
Cocktails are overpriced but still great. Food is great as well.
Husk provides an amazing dining experience. The food is fantastic, and the staff works like a well oiled machine. Our entrees took a little longer to come to the table than we would have liked, but that was probably a direct result of the time and care put in to making them. It was a bit loud while we were there (9pm-ish), but the place was pretty busy. The bartenders were also fantastic. We will definitely go back again.
I have always dream of dining at Husk. I was very disappointed at the quality of food. Staff is friendly and attentive or I would have given the lowest one-star rating.
