Husk was the culinary highlight of our short trip to Charleston. We were able to make an evening reservation just a few days ahead of our trip, and it proved essential. The first course lettuce wraps containing crispy pig's ear were excellent and went well...More

I’m a frequent eater and restaurant aficionado. Been to Husk several times, lunch is usually worthwhile. Dinner is spotty - last time I had amberjack and explained to the waiter it was a bit underdone to my taste. I know that fish doesn’t need to...More

You will never get in for dinner without a reservation, we got lucky and went there for lunch and we were the only couple to get in without a reservation with seven couples waiting

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.
