Blogger Reviews of Husk Restaurant

For all the accolades this place gets, it lives up to the hype. First class food and service, would definitely be on my short list of "need to make reservations here" when I am in Charleston.
Husk Restaurant Reviews
I was dissapointed! After all the writeups and positive reviews, we went to Husk for lunch. The decor is great as is the waitstaff, but the meal was jusst average.
Eat here as often as possible: shrimp n grits or burger at lunch, crispy pig ears lettuce wraps + wood fired mussels to start at din. Can't go wrong w any of the entrees.
by Layla K.
A good choice overall. They go a little overboard with the plating... detracts front he food sometimes.
by Paul B.
If you have only one day in Charleston come here! Try the Southern Fried Skins!!
by Michael V.
It's impossible to ignore the place where Sean Brock cooks with his heart. It's all Southern, all the time. [Eater 18 Member]
Not worth the hype. All the food was salty and the burger was inedible. The bar next door and their bourbon selection is excellent though

Amazing shrimp with grits plus home made corn bread
Check out the upstairs bar next to the main dining room. It's awesome.
by Nicholas C.
The leg of duck is probably the most savory dish I've ever had. So much flavor. The pig ears are a great starter. After dinner, head to the bar next door for awesome cocktails. Open until midnight.
by Jacob G.
They'll split plates for you if you ask! Even stuff like the grits. Which are ridiculous.
by Mike J.
Bloody Mary is insane!! Be prepared..it's like a meal! Prosciutto and chunks of green tomatoes are just some of the ingredients!
by Kelly H.
Lunch was awesome.
by Lynwood D.
great dinner and wonderful menu. Really felt like we were eating authentic regional cousin and it was great! Wait staff was wonderful and wine list was great - reasonable.
Excellent every time.
by Jeffery W.
Definitely the best burgers I've had in my life, period.
Everything was amazing - from the lunch menu, nonetheless! Pork belly lettuce wrap, shrimpngrits, flat iron and pheasant (yes - for 2 ppl). Everything blew our mind, and we have high expectation.
by N Z.
The shrimp and grits! The shrimp and grits!
by Dion L.
by AL K.
Beautiful setting. Phenomenal atmosphere and terrific wait staff - everything on the menu is day-of fresh, so you may not see the favorite dishes listed in reviews. Don't worry! You can't go wrong.
by patrick m.
the most delicious meal I've ever had. incredibly cooked seafood. pig tail lettuce wraps: amazing. stuffed clams: delicious.
Crostini with pimiento cheese, country ham and pickles....AH-MAZING!
by Vandi M.
Overpriced if you choose healthy options. Go for the cornbread, lettuce wraps and stuff that's unique
by L R.
Hate to say it but... Meh. Locally sourced does not mean better tasting. Disappointing. Expected better.
by Michiko B.
Yes the pig ear lettuce wraps are that good. Get them. Punches excellent too.
by Katelin M.
With reservations blocked months in advance, arrive early, grab a drink from the bar next door, and wait on the porch for them to start taking names for walk-ins at 5:15pm sharp. Be prepared to wait.

Vamos tomar Champagne para comemorar minha visita aos EUA ! N
by Teresa G.
Get the pig ears. Just do it.
by Ryan J.
Get the Charleston Light Dragoon's punch, it's an amazing southern sweet tea with a kick. Staff at the bar is fun to watch too.
by Mieke S.
Try the Atlantic Grey Tilefish With Sc Broccoli, Wild Ramps, Spring Onion And Red Pepper Tomato Broth (via @Foodspotting)
by Russ L.
The ketchup is terrible. Bring your own Heinz in your girlfriend/wife's purse.
by David G.
Try the crispy pig ear lettuce wraps for an appetizer and the Arnold Palmer for dessert, amazing!
by Lauren B.
Fried chicken skins with pimento cheese worth every calorie
Infamously blended with bacon (see a full rundown on what this entails), the burger at Sean Brock's Husk in Charleston is a pilgrimage to be made by any burger fanatic.
Try the Kentuckyaki Glazed Pig Ear Lettuce Wraps With Sweet Vinegar Marinated Cucumbers And Red Onion - Surprisingly awesome! (via @Foodspotting)
by Rick G.
The Carolina Gold Rice "Risotto" w/ Roasted Fennel and Tomatoes, English Pea Pesto is hands-down the best rice dish I have ever had! Ask for Travis. He gives impeccable service!
by Suzannah S.
Fried chicken skins will tickle your inner fatkid
by Sohyung K.
We were vacationing in Charleston and this restaurant came highly recommended and was unfortunately very disappointing. Fried pig ears were way over sauced and corn bread was so salty it was inedible.
by Jonathan M.
The pigs ear lettuce wrap really is amazing. Loved everything we had but the ribs (strangely enough.)
by Patrick T.
Hanging pig carcusses...count me in!
by Brandice T.
Start off with a glass of Light Dragoons Punch - a 1783 recipe discovered in the archives of The Preservation Society of Charleston.
by Jeremy P.
Best bacon on earth. Bloody Mary's are sublime. Food heaven!
by Amy J.

Food was fantastic - fried chicken skins were delicious and perfect for anyone who believes skin is the best part of the chicken, but a generous portion means it's a better choice for larger groups.
by Steph B.
If you come to Charleston you HAVE to eat here at least once or three times. Start with the Dragoon Punch or a cider wine. Food and service are top notch served in an older beautiful building.
by Michael V.
Great location, concept and atmosphere
by Meaghan B.
order the Corn Bread it's a must have if availabe.
by Sheen S.
Oh man....what else to expect from a great chef, phenomenal food. Best pork I've ever had!
by Joseph P.
From #TLSponChat: “@RosanneVogel: I had a great meal at Husk in August. Best pork chop ever.”
by Travel + Leisure
This might be one of the best meals I've ever eaten. I also love the little baskets the bread comes in. I ha the red porgy and clams...flavor to die for.
by Niq H.
Came here for Dinner at 6pm on a sunday and was told there was a 25 minute wait. After waiting ten minutes and noticing there were only two tables in the dining room that had people at them, we left.
by Justin T.
Tommy and Nik break it down on the line. Order whatever's on their station.

This place is taking southern food to a whole new level! I had their crispy fried pig skins in lettuce wraps and was skeptical yet they were amazing!
by Meredith A.
Try the Kentuckyaki: pig ear lettuce wraps. Delicious.
by Jeff F.
Try whiskey over the "perfect" ball of ice.
by Marna P.
Try the Wagyu Petit Filet - We got lucky - didn't even know it was Restaurant Week! 3 courses for $30! (via @Foodspotting)
by Jennifer L.
The bar next door is a great place to kill time while waiting for a table.
by Will B.
Great restaurant helmed by Sean Brock. Whatever you do, get the fried pig ear appetizer - one of the best things I've ever eaten!
by Vivek S.
Absolutely unreal! Try as much as you can fit. You will not be disappointed
Bacon cornbread with honey pork butter #nuff_said
by Robert R.
Ask for "the Love" now on draft! It's a German style Hefe by Starr Hill Brewery in Charlottesville Va. They have Northern Lights IPA in the bottle as well! Enjoy
by Brad T.
Get the pig ears. They're bacon's more complex cousin–with the same smoky flavor and crisp chew–pressure cooked for 90 minutes, sliced into thin strips, smoked for several hours, and then deep fried.
by Men's Health Mag
Try the blinker. Rye whiskey, grapefruit juice and St. Germain. Amazing!
by Adam C.
If you can't get into the restaurant, hop over to the bar and have a burger. Amazing!
by Adam C.
Try the shrimp and grits, made with smoky sausage, roast tomato and fennel. For dessert? Bourbon-pecan pie. For more local tips, follow us on 4sq or check out renhotels.com.

You. Cannot. Go. Wrong. If it seems to pricey, come at lunch. Everything is heaven.
by Karen G.
I'll take the suckling pig with a side porch, please.

Order the fried green tomatoes, skip the cornbread. The fried green tomatoes were one of the best things we've ever eaten.
by Dulcinea C.
My new husband and I tried this place on our honey
by Dulcinea C.
The bar at Husk is amazing, with an excellent bar staff. The barrel aged Manhattan is the best bourbon cocktail I've ever had.

Try the Beet, Radish, Peanut And Wild Lettuce Salad - It looks like someone was murdered but it tastes like heaven. (via @Foodspotting)

One-hour wait at 12:45. Sat right down at toast a block away.

Crispy pig ear lettuce wraps are out of this world.
by Cory G.
Made our South's Best List! The hyper-local menu changes daily, but the cornbread is constant—crisp, scented with Benton’s bacon, and piping hot in a mini cast-iron skillet.
by Southern Living
The Fire in the Orchard is an awesome drink.
