In planning for my first visit to Charleston, I kept reading about Husk as a dining must. Save your time & money. Place is loud, our wait staff was absolutely rude and disengaged, the place was full of kitchen smokiness and my gin and tonic...More

We had breakfast on the upper balcony. Nice setting. But we first were seating by the hostess at a table without a table cloth, meaning the table itself was marred and dirty. The surrounding tables all had table cloths. We had to ask our waiter...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.
