We had lunch here..waited about 10 minutes because we didn't have reservation (which I would recommend). Food was awesome...had the shrimp and grits with a side of the corn bread. A must if you're in Charleston. Service was exceptional!

We were in Charleston for the Spoleto Festival and looking for a bite before the opera. I had heard of Sean Brock (chef/owner) and his famous Husk restaurant. I saw that it was close to the performance venue, so we walked over. Of course, they...More

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.
