Very excited to go to Husk, since the one in Charleston was so awesome. Made reservations weeks in advance and my son and I went to there with great expectations. The vibe was horrible...not friendly at all. Our waiter after he screws up our order,...acted like it was our fault. The wings were so hot that my son could not eat them. My shrimp and grits were also too spicy for me to enjoy. Just because it is spicy doesn’t mean that it is flavored well. Lived in Louisiana for years and these were the worst I have ever had. Waiter gave me my bill and then took it back so he could add a tea refill on my bill....really. Very pathetic and will not be returning or recommending to any of my Nashville friends or food bloggers. Go some where else folks...don’t waste your time or money.More

Excitement to try Husk quickly turned to frustration and confusion as the hostess sat us at a tiny table in the dark basement against a dark wall. The food unfortunately didn't follow too far behind the ambience in disappointment. Gravy for biscuits was good, cinnamon...roll was okay, but needed more sauce. Seems the passion has gone for this place...could have been so much more.More

I was here in April, 2019 with a friend who has food allergies. Her dietary restrictions were accommodated, the food delicious and the service superlative. I could hardly wait to come back again. Returned on Friday of Labor Day with my husband, recognizing that COVID-19...changes things. More limited menu, but still innovative. No charm on the patio and service was LACKING. The non-meat dishes were quite good. Don't choose them, though, if you want your veggies ordinary.More

The venue was great- elegant and exactly what I expected. As far as the service- it was mediocre at best. I ran out of water and my white wine was room temperature and should have been chilled. The server just ignored the fact that I...didn’t eat and had no plates in front of me after it took 55 mins to get our food. In terms of the food- my husband got the pork chop and I got the beef of the night. The pork was ok- but for $33 I expect more than ok. The beef was the worst piece of meat that I’ve ever experienced. So chewy, no flavor and just bad that I didn’t even eat it (it actually hurt my teeth it was so chewy). I gave it to my husband! He let me eat his pork, but after a few bites I realized it wasn’t very good, too much fat and just mediocre flavor. The portions were so small my fit husband ate both meals. There were literally 6 halves of Brussels sprouts as a side. That’s 3 total Brussels sprouts! A side of the pork chop was a small sliver of sweet potato. I consider both of us foodies and appreciate smaller portions, but for $36 and $33 dollars- the food should be delicious. please go somewhere else. Pretty much anywhere else.More

I have been to Husk Nashville a few times, but have also been to the Husk in Charleston. For loving Charleston's food scene so much, I can honestly say I like Husk Nashville more. The building itself makes the dining experience a little different than...a normal restaurant, which I personally find very nice. The happy hour is great. You have to sit at the bar, but it's a cool space. The burger is one of the best burgers I've had. Cooked perfectly, with all the right toppings. I have also formally dined here a few times. The menu is constantly changing, with options for everyone. There's usually a vegetarian option too, which is helpful. If you're looking for a special occasion meal, or just to try something new, I definitely recommend trying Husk.More

First let me say I was very impressed on the venue. The old home had a lot of charm , but that is about as far as it went. My wife and I were in Nashsville for the weekend and made reservations for brunch. When...we arrived we were seated in the front room which turned out to be very cold and drafty. We ordered a Bloody Mary which ok but not great. My wife ordered the Shrimp and Grits and I had the Eggs Benedict. Being from the gulf coast you know what good shrimps and grits should be and these did not come close. Really a poor substitute. Now for the Eggs Benedicts. I consider myself a pretty good expert on EB. The eggs should be cooked just right so when you cut into them they will run over the ham and muffins and the hollandaise sauce should complement the eggs and cover the eggs and muffin. The eggs were cooked to perfection , however , the hollandaise sauce were three spoons full of yellow paste served on the plate without no taste which was probably made the day prior. I will compliment our server who did a great job.More

Visited Husk with a group of friends on a Sunday evening for dinner. Two ordered the shrimp and grits and the ordered the trout. We also had the skillet corn bread and smokey wings. It is evident that only the freshest items are used in...their dishes. Excellent food, excellent service, excellent atmosphere.More

Boasting local ingredients makes everything from the drinks to the food fresh tasting and delicious. The bartender knew her stuff when it came to every kind of liquor. Great place!!!

Husk restaurant was amazing. The old house is a perfect spot for a restaurant, so beautiful. Atmosphere was so nice. Location was perfect from our hotel, only a 10 min walk. Food was fantastic. The Shrimp and Grits was to die for. One of the...best things I’ve ever eaten. Our server, Logan, was very professional, polite and attentive. We live in Canada, so it may be a while before we return, but if I lived in Nashville, I’d visit this restaurant regularly.More
