The menu is diverse, complex, yet does not let you forget that you are in the south. On a 4 day vacation we had lunch here the 1st day. Then had to go back for dinner on the last evening. Plan ahead, reservations are hard to get. Service was helpful and smart. A must when in Charleston.

Traveled here for business from PDX, and several of the local attendees recommended that we try Husk next time we are in town, due to how long locals wait on reservations (6+ months standard). When we found out Sunday Brunch (only day they offer it is first come first serve, we walked across the street (stayed at Mills House) just... More

There is a lot of demand here and they deserve it. We really enjoyed relaxing at the bar courtyard next door before eating. We enjoyed all of the "firsts" as small plates and had a very enjoyable meal. Oysters, ribs and kielbasa were highlights. Charming old home and terrific setting.

We had breakfast on the upper balcony. Nice setting. But we first were seating by the hostess at a table without a table cloth, meaning the table itself was marred and dirty. The surrounding tables all had table cloths. We had to ask our waiter for one, and he was happy to do so. But the waiter was a typical... More

The food is outstanding. Make sure you make reservations a month or so before your visit. If not, you can still get in but need to arrive right when they start taking walk ins. The bar at husk is also a great option w a wonderful patio. The service is good!

In a jam packed weekend we had to do Husk for brunch. We were a bit disappointed. The place is not as charming as Fig. The menu is limited mostly consisting of eggs. I would stay away from their brunch flatbread. Their fried chicken and the grits are a must

Had lunch at Husks, Food was great, had the cheese burger, shrimp and grits, and fried chicken. Awesome Bloody Mary.... and the rolls with butter were to die for! We did not have a reservations, and we showed up early and were seated 25 mins later. The only negative we have to say about our visit was the waiter we... More

fter three days in Charleston, I came here after receiving a good recommendation from a friend of a friend who is a local. I first went to the bar, but quickly realized the bar doesn't offer the full menu so I tried my luck inside. I snagged a table on the second floor porch without any wait, which was amazing... More

Husk was highly recommended. I made dinner reservations for 2 of us 6 weeks in advance. The food was excellent. When seated the service was excellent, but as the meal continued and the restaurant fills up the service became lethargic. 6:15 PM to 8:30 PM for 2 people was a long time for a dinner. The review would have been... More

Description
Occupying adjacent spaces on Queen Street, Husk’s structures date back to the late 1800s. The main dining room, constructed in 1893, evokes the grandeur of Charleston, and speaks to the transformation of the city over time. Victorian details and turned columns were layered over the original Queen Anne-style façade through the years, and the buildings fell into disrepair until discovered by Husk ownership. The Neighborhood Dining Group President David Howard set into a motion an extensive remodeling effort of both.
Although both buildings retain their antique charm and stately character, the renovations imbued each with a modern, minimalist theme. Like the reinterpreted food served within, each space has been laid bare, revealing reclaimed floors, original windows, and exposed brick throughout. The main house features an open kitchen with a wood-burning oven and dining room.
