We had a fantastic experience at Husk. The service was everything you always hope for: knowledgeable, nice and available if needed. The food was simply delicious. Innovative, modern and unique.

The restaurant underwhelmed us in a number of areas. The food was above average, but by no means outstanding. Things were somewhat overpriced for what we were receiving. I was charged $14 for a non alcoholic beverage that I could have bought for under $5...in a store. Our server was continually trying to upsell us, there were two of us and she strongly suggested that we have at least 2-3 starters before our main meal. We won’t be going back.More

Everything was so good. Took forever to decide and a hug thank you to our server Dom, he was so helpful. We started with a Ham Plate, Cheese Plate and P. J. Kuhn. The ham was the favorite. Dinner was Strip and Trout with a...biscuit plate and vegetable plate. I would pass next time on the biscuit and vegetable; Strip and Trout was excellent. This was my first time to try Vinegar Pie and it will not be my last.More

Rutledge Hill is a tiny Nashville neighborhood in downtown no wider than six blocks in any direction. But the district’s restaurant game is very strong, including newcomer The Goat, and three absolute legends in Martin’s, 3rd & Lindsley, and Husk. The latter is so highly...acclaimed, it easily holds its own against just about any culinary establishment in town. The space exudes southern charm, occupying an old home built in 1882, inhabited by a Nashville mayor, and privately owned until 2012 when Husk bought the house. Just a glance at their nightly and ever changing menu reveals quality, creativity, and a commitment to local foods. Like many high-end restaurants in Tennessee - and fine dining establishments all over the U.S. for that matter - their pork products come from the much heralded Benton’s ham shop in rural Monroe County, Tennessee. The beef comes from Bear Creek Farm just south of Nashville in Williamson County, a staple of upscale local restaurants. Between those two products and the creative fusion of southern flavors, Husk’s menu immediately had my attention. There are four Husk outlets across the South, and Nashville is fortunate to have one. But each location has its own identity, so calling them a chain would be derogatory. These beautifully orchestrated dishes and carefully coordinated wine pairings are nothing shy of genius. Executive Chef Ben Norton was brought in from Charleston in 2021 to uphold their high standards. Despite being the sixth head chef at Husk in about three years, the quality has never skipped a beat, remaining true to legendary chef Sean Brock’s original vision. The restaurant goes the extra mile for freshness, collaborating with local farmers, coordinating seasonal foods at their peak, and even growing their own herbs outside the business in the heart of an urban setting. Their attention to detail is stunning. After an exquisite evening of dining at Husk, I’m compelled to rank them among my top five upscale restaurants in Nashville with the likes of Kayne Prime, Bourbon Steak, and The Optimist. I simply cannot give them four stars considering the fabulous service, the incredibly knowledgeable server, the clever dishes, and the stellar quality of everything we ate. If you have a meal comparable to ours, with tax and tip, you’d be looking at right around $100 per person. And Husk is worth it. Two of us shared two appetizers, including 12-month aged Benton’s ham, sliced thin like prosciutto served with soft rolls to assemble your own little sandwiches. We also shared the cheese plate with some exquisite selections of cheddar and blue cheese. Our entree was a small sampling of a Bear Creek strip steak in a brown butter sauce with a horseradish foam and sautéed Jerusalem artichokes. I’d put the steak alone in Nashville’s top three. We placed two orders for their legendary cheddar buttermilk biscuits - four total - which have been ranked by Eater.com among the top ten in a city known for biscuits! They have a hearty and thick texture with a hint of cheddar, buttery and tender and certainly among the best I’ve had. We finished with the vinegar pie, a slightly acidic dessert that slightly resembles a key lime pie but not as citrusy nor as strong. It just melts in your mouth like a chess pie, but thicker like a cheesecake, accentuated with a rose flavored whipped cream. If you need to narrow down the extensive culinary scene in Nashville, Husk is definitely a must-do!More

Everything about Husk is top-notch. It’s a bit far removed from downtown and Broadway, but I think that kinds of adds to its charm. I’m a big fan of the historical aspect - the architecture for both the interior and exterior are stunning. We fortunately...sat at the lower level, and were under the high vaulted ceilings. The sky was clear and blue, and there was lots of natural light in the dining area which really enhanced the experience. The food was unbeatable too. Husk’s take on an espresso martini was so good I had two! We started off with the monkey bread, which was excellent. I had a duck confit toast which was very innovative and delicious. My dad had a trout roll which was great too. Husk is the perfect embodiment of southern cuisine – we are huge fans!More

We have eaten at Husk twice now. Both times we were very impressed with our meals, the ambiance and the service. The thing that sets Husk apart for me is that they offer a side sampler that includes unusual versions of multiple foods, and each...one is tastier than the next.More

The restaurant is off the beaten track but we quite liked that. It is in a charming setting and in a converted house. It is expensive and a little overpriced for what you get. However that said we enjoyed our dinner here and the ability...to see the open kitchen. Menu is short and was fine for us. Service good, cocktails great and all our food was delicious!More

Really cool atmosphere. Service was attentive but server not great at listening to what we really wanted. Food was mediocre. For $500 for 4 people, I’d save your money. Presentation was great but food was pretty bland. Asking for salt didn’t seem like an option.

Set in an old house some way, away from Broadway street, this is a great restaurant to visit if you like a vibey restaurant with a very interesting menu. The service is good and the charred back ribs are truly spectacular, and highly recommended. We...had a great evening, and I would definitely return should the opportunity arise.More
