Recommended by a friend I try this Chef driven restaurant. I found everything that was prepared fresh that day to be very good. I was not only impressed with the food, wine, and service, but also the old house that it resides. An overall relaxing and pleasant lunch

We had a perfect dinner ! The restaurant is in an old home so it has a number of rooms as well as upstairs and downstairs. It is tastefully decorated with art work, and has comfortable tables and chairs with lots of space in between. A great ambiance for comfort and enjoyment of a meal! The wait staff is excellent--very... More

The most important thing about this restaurant is that my cardiologist doesn't know I was there! Wow. The food was terrific - they served this bread with a pork infused butter that was out of this world. I had the pancake. One pancake that filled the whole plate, covered with apples and crumble and a buttermilk frosting. I ate half... More

After a less than impressive meal at Circa 1886, we decided to try to get into Husk our last night in Charleston. We could not get a reservation but were told to come in around 5:45 and put our name on the list for the outdoor patio seating. We arrived near 6 PM and were told it would be close... More

My husband and I foolishly tried to wander into this super popular eatery on a Friday night, hoping to get on the waiting list. We were too early (waitlist starts at 515) but as we walked out the hostess ran after us as she had just had a cancellation for 6:00. The restaurant is lovely- the staff and service is... More

My son had just graduated from the navy nuclear power school that morning. My daughter, his girlfriend, his mother and stepfather and I went out to dinner at Husk that evening to celebrate. Except for my son, we all flew in for the celebration, so we did not know the restaurants in the local area, so luckily my son did... More

Visited with three friends in November 2016--we mostly got different dishes and tasted each others' choices--everything was terrific. I still think about the roasted Brussel sprouts that were pastrami style--flavored with caraway and perfectly cooked. Start to finish the meal was amazing, including our server and the kitchen tour we were privileged to take.

After being so excited to try Husk, we were extremely disappointed. Not only did it not live up to the hype, it simply wasn't very good. The coffee rubbed strip was well prepared...... but perhaps one of the most flavorless steak ever. The pork had large chunks of fat and was slightly cold - not a good combo. The sides... More

Oh my, this is one fine dining experience. Chef Sean Brock, I love your food. The flavors all meld into one tasty experience. The soup, Heirloom Bean and Pancetta Soup, Winter Root Vegetables, Siberian Kale, Fried Cornbread was perfect. This broth was savory, all items in the soup complimented each other and the ample cornbread bits were such a delight.... 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.
