Nice place to celebrate a special occasion or dinner party, call ahead for reservations, top floor is best for parties.

If you are visiting for alcohol beverages then you are ok, if you are visiting for food, then good luck. Menu selection limited and food taste like the environment-bar food and slightly overpriced.

Visited for a late lunch. It took our server several minutes to approach the table and then take our order. He didn't run our food or ask how we were until he stopped by to give us the check... When he told us that if we wanted dessert to let him know. We had to ask for a box and a drink refill. I watched as he did his side work a few feet from us. I know he was cut... But it's no excuse for him ignore his table... After all... We pay them.

Our food was good and the host was nice.

I had dinner here with friends one night in late October. We were seated upstairs, which was a little quieter, with few other guests (though we had a small child with us, so it may have been for the benefit of others that we were put upstairs). On this particular night, there was no live music and it was pretty subdued inside.

We were waited upon by a couple of staff, who were upbeat & friendly. Our drinks were served quickly and the waiters remained attentive, checking on all the tables to see if everyone was happy or needed more drinks and were available whenever we needed something.

We ordered the ‘Huske Sampler’ platter to share for starters, it contains all the usual suspects: chicken wings, (heavily battered) onion rings, cheese sticks & chicken pieces.
For mains we ordered alfredo pasta; shepherds pie; a half pound hickory burger and quesadillas. Each main was served as a generous portion (and came with sides) and was well cooked – however it was standard pub fare and nothing memorable. (& to include a minor technicality shepherd’s pie is made with lamb not beef, the latter is a cottage pie.)

Between us - we sampled a good selection of the ales that are on offer, with the German Blonde and the Farmhouse Ale being the favourites on the night.

The food on offer is pretty average with a slight bent on an ‘English pub-grub theme’ – on the website they state they’re a gastro-pub, but they’re not! It’s very much a contemporary bar, serving American or Americanised food, which is fine, but let’s not call it something it’s not.
I was a little disappointed to only see a handful of items on the menu that were British (shepherd’s pie, bangers and fish & chips), but that doesn’t make a full menu. What about an all day greasy spoon breakfast? neets and tatties? Irish stew? Yorkshire pudding? Cornish pastie? Or since you’re a brewery, how about a steak and ale pie??

Don’t get me wrong this is a great place for a few drinks and they serve some grub that goes down well with beer; however I personally am not a fan of pubs/restaurants that make claims on national cuisine/identity like Outback Steakhouses (you won’t find any bloomin onions in Oz) or any Irish bar outside of Ireland (serving Guinness, doesn’t make you an Irish bar!). Either stick to what you know or (if you want to be a British Gastro Pub) go the full monty and serve a broad selection of British Cuisine at gastropub standards.

I really want this place to work! Downtown needs good choices to eat but each time I come to Huske the service reminds me why its not my top choice for lunch or dinner.

From what I hear, Huske has a pretty hoppin bar scene at night so maybe thats their niche.
