Incredible experience due to atmosphere, friendly staff, timely service and great food. It’s important to note menu changes daily. The restaurant is very accommodating on mixing sides of the main entree. We ordered 4 appetizers and 2 entrees. The 4 appetizers included: deviled eggs, shrimp...dumplings, pimento cheese with buttermilk biscuits, husk pickles, and thinly sliced ham and lastly, golden fried rice with fried chicken. The chicken with rice appetizer was slightly greasy, but had an outstanding flavor. The 2 main “supper” dishes were roasted chicken substituted with collard greens and the second entree was gemelli with green tomatoes, okra and crab. A side of corn bread was also added to the order with whipped butter. We appreciated the manager walking around checking on tables. Overall, experience was excellent!More

We booked this restaurant months in advance as it has wonderful reviews. It is a fabulous historic home and the food was delicious. I enjoyed the shrimp dumplings in a ham broth for an appetizer, and had snapper for my entree.

We had a wonderful lunch at Husk. We grabbed a quick drink from the bar and sat outside while we waited for our table. Fun to sit on the historic porch and watch the world go by. Our lunch was delicious, service excellent. I highly...recommend the country ham biscuit with pimento cheese and pickles. Yum!More

What an amazing experience. The restaurant is already touted as one of the finest in Charleston. The menu has a date on it because the menu changes based on the Chef's choice. The food is non-traditional home cooking. For instance the deviled eggs.. I mean...it's a deviled egg right? WRONG. I swear when I ate the deviled egg I went through 4 phases of tastes. From creamy to a bite of fire, to a mustard tang and finally back to creamy. You will need reservations for sure. The place is VERY busy and you are not rushed. You are expected to stay and enjoy. And the price? Very reasonable for a top notch restaurant. HIGHLY recommend!More

Greeted and seated promptly. Service excellent. Deviled eggs delicious, compote yummy, fried chicken cooked to perfection. The strawberry cocktail was the perfect compliment to the meal. Definitely meets the high standards of a Beard Award. Keep it going!!!!!

I'm glad i was able to snag a reservation once I arrived in Charleston. Since i was a bit early, i read the menu outside. Actually, i was rather unimpressed, but knowing the high ratings, i gave it a try. Ordered the flounder with clams...(3) and bacon and broccolini. Oh, my. The sunchoke sauce accompanying the fish was superb, the side of grits with white cheese was delicious, and a final tangerine shebert was also great. Really an enjoyable meal. It was also nice to have a nicely located table and not be relegated to a hidden spot as a single diner. Overall a great dining experience.More

We came for drinks at the Bar and then dinner at the Restaurant. (Bar is a separate building from the restaurant.) We were really disappointed at the bar. The bartender was unfriendly and had an attitude. Usually, bartenders are so friendly and helpful we were...disappointed. We stayed for one drink and then left. We asked a few questions about the history and Husk but he could not bothered. We took away two Review stars for the Bar. We give the 3 stars left for the Restaurant. We enjoyed the delicious southern food and our waiter was friendly and helpful with making choices.More

We dropped in for a few drinks. Not a great experience. I thought I saw a bottle of Patron tequila - so just asked if they had Patron (my go to drink is a Patron and tonic). The guy jumped down my throat saying ‘we...only have tequilas with no additives’. Well if you knew anything about tequilas , you would know that Patron is one of the very few that is made from ONLY Water, Agave and Yeast. So I had a beer. My wife checked that the tonic was from a bottle (what proper bar does tonic from a gun or Syrup!) - they had Fever Tree by the bottle . Perfect. Gin and Tonic please . He then used Mediterranean Tonic . Hopeless. And aggressive. Not great.More

So disappointing!!! This is supposedly one of Charleston's best restaurants? Asked for a Pinot Grigio, which they didnt have...that's ok, but the waiter suggested a Gewuztraminer...really? Not close to a grigio. The mushroom appetizer was OK, T-Bone was marginal, and cornbread was burnt. Don't understand...the hype...More

Bar at Husk: Great spot for a pre (or post) dinner drink. Lovely building, staff with a great sense of humor and delicious cocktails. Husk: YUM. We had a delicious dinner with fantastic service. And, now, Husk is my favorite spot in Charleston!

My sister had reservation here a few months ago. In fact she was on a waitlist and got called back fairly quickly that we could get in. The menu changes daily, so what you see on Yelp etc may not be what you will see...on the menu. I looked at their menu on their site the day of and that helped me decide. I had a 1st for dinner, it was plenty. I went with Carolina Gold Rice, Fried Chicken and eggs, it wasn't my thing. I had chili on the side but the dish was still too spicy for my liking. My mom had the Joyce Farms Chicken meal and that was great! I guess a hit and miss, glad I could experience it though.More

Very high expectations, a little disappointed in the food. Great bar, charming ambiance. Our server Rob was warm and professional. The cornbread and collards were exceptional, and I don’t even like collards! The $17 glass of wine was fine. The dumplings were good, but not...exceptional. I was very excited about the locally sourced tile fish, and it was plated beautifully, but a little overcooked. So, a fine meal, but did not meet my lofty expectations.More

Husk is hands down the BEST restaurants in Charleston! Husk has a very attentive and knowledgeable staff from servers to their female Sommelier! Everything we ordered was delicious and served hot! We will definitely return next time we’re in Charleston. BRAVO

I’ve had to do that in many restaurants in many cities. If you cancel your reservation 24 hrs in advance, there is no charge.
