Excellent food and service. We had a truly amazing meal here. I would most certainly eat here again but you need to book a table well in advance.

Glad we had made reservations, as this was a popular destination for lunch. Very pleasant dinning area, and service was very good after short wait even with our reservations. Menu was interesting, and the four us all had something different and no one was disappointed. Ample serving, and fair value.

LOVED everything about this restaurant. We were lucky and were seated on the second level porch (if you are going and it's nice weather, the porch was an excellent atmosphere). The old southern house has lots of charm. The burger....one of the best I have ever had. The fried chicken.....hands down the best fried chicken my husband and I have... More

We shared the sale, husk puppies and rabbit terrine - plus the bread. All very good and the salad and the terrine were the stand out. My wife had the burger - always a classic. I had the fried chicken which would have been too much, even without the starters. Delicious. Our son had the pork belly sandwich which he... More

The wait staff was great!! The menu was fresh and fun but the tastes were not so great. It was lacking fun- maybe just too much hype?

When it takes you 3 months to get a reservation and there's a ton of hype about it and it's super expensive, one expects it to be one of the best meals they've ever had. Unfortunately, this restaurant is greatly over-rated. This was "THE meal" for our sisters trip. Not only are the front staff unfriendly but also unwelcoming. Being... More

We got on the waitlist Easter morning and got lucky enough to enjoy brunch on the upstairs porch. Great food and beautiful historic home! Will return.

My wife and I were on a cruise, and knowing we were stopping in Charleston,SC we had made prior reservations at Husk Restaurant for lunch. We were seated promptly, and the service was pretty good. My wife ordered Chicken Fried Steak which she enjoyed. I, unfortunately ordered fried chicken, which at a restaurant priding itself on southern cooking, should have... More

I had high expectations for Husk, which has won awards and is regularly ranked in the top few restaurants of Charleston. Unfortunately, my experience did not merit these accolades. The menu changes daily so it is possible I just caught it on a bad day. Neither my first or my supper was very tasty. The dessert also was nothing special.... More

Description
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.
