The food is delicious and the people are so friendly and accommodating. Brought my 93 year old mother here for Mother's day and we both had a great time and an even better meal! We've been back a number of times, and plan to keep coming. The She Crab Soup IS the best in town.
"amberjack is a wonderful fish, both robust and flaky at the same time, a fish deserving of being allowed to be tasted on its own merit with subtle accents to complement its texture and inherent flavor"
That's gotta be the nicest thing ever written about an ol' sea donkey.
Mrs cp and I finally got around to going to Husk this evening.
Long story short, in our opinion by far the most overrated restaurant in Charleston.
Mind you nothing was inherently terrible, but not a notable dish to be found. Also mindful that expectations are the building blocks of disappointment we tried to be as objective as possible ... still, most of dinner was spent trying to locate the 'great' and trying to figure out what the fuss is all about.
Things started out goodish, with a bean salad for mrs soulsea and the chicken skins for me. Granted it's a little weird having a heated salad as an appetizer but it did taste good, as did the chicken skins.
Our main course went as follows ... mrs cp is a vegetarian and we are fully aware that most restaurants we go to her choices will be limited. But in every quality restaurant we've ever dined at the chef will create something special for vegetarians, especially if said chef never took the time to insert even one vegetarian dish amongst their main courses to begin with, which quite frankly is unheard of in 2014. What was the chef's offering for her tonight you ask? Assorted grilled/fried vegetables. That's right, the chef at Husk put together the exact same dish that the chef at Outback always suggests, and they were both equally impressive.
'chili pimp you asshat it's your fault for not knowing that everything including the water is prepared in pork fat at Husk, as such it's your fault for seeking a vegetarian dish there' I hear you say. Fair enough, so let me tell you about my dish. I ordered the amberjack. Now keep in mind that amberjack is a wonderful fish, both robust and flaky at the same time, a fish deserving of being allowed to be tasted on its own merit with subtle accents to complement its texture and inherent flavor. Instead it was swimming in a sauce comprised of a cacophony of ingredients imagined in the mind of a chef that would rather overthink the obvious than leave well enough alone. Seriously dude, fish plus a few precise elements not fish and all of them. All I tasted was the soup he called a sauce and the fish might as well have been bread to the palate. Ugh!
Deserts were bland end equally too clever for their own good taste.
We're glad we went but we will not be going back.
They must have a hell of a PR dept. cause I can name at least fifteen better Charleston restaurants than Husk, and half of them are tourist traps. To go back to the original point ... it is still a complete mystery to us what the Husk fuss is all about.
Must stop for craft beer lovers! Consistently great brews with an added bonus of Lowcountry views!
Knowledgeable staff, and prompt service. I would recommend this shop for repairs, rentals, or sales to anyone i know!
What I'm reviewing is the event coming up this weekend at Atomacon (www.Atomacon.org). A while back I had an idea and with Janet Millwater Iannantuono to bring a sci-fi/fantasy/comic convention to North Charleston since it would have good room to grow as these cons have tended to explode in massive numbers over the past few years. Since I'm a busy artist that travels and works quite a bit, I decided to just do the show instead of trying to help run it. That being said, Janet and her Daughter Michelle have done a nice job starting this show up last year and this will be the second year for the convention. It will be held in North Charleston at the InnPlace Charleston Airport Hotel - It's the hotel that was for years the Marriott and then the Sheraton right next to the neon movie theater which I admit, I love the neon work they did years ago on that building since you CAN'T miss it. This small, family friendly convention will have comics/sci-fi/fantasy/Gothic-horror and gamer art, books, products for sale and gaming as well. It's a convention for the inner geek which it's now "sheek to be geek". There will be Authors, Artists, discussion panels, Cosplay, Gaming - you name it; it will probably be there along with the Ghostbusters complete with the EctoMobile. Last year it was a nice fun crowd and we had a good time. R2D2 will probably be there as well. Yes, he looks just like if not better than the one from the movies and he works! If you would like to have a small version of Comic Con in North Charleston continue and grow, come out and support the artists, authors and vendors of collectibles of sci-fi and fantasy and enjoy yourself. It's a good time for the children as most festivals in Charleston seem to involve drinking and country music and I doubt very seriously there will be a county band there, but there will be the Gothic music of Valentine Wolf and more amazing activities to experience, see and enjoy. Remember, it starts this Friday - Sunday. So go to the website www.Atomacon.org and get your memberships or you can certainly buy them at the door. Don't miss it. Oh, I'll have my art on display there as well. “www.jameshillgallery.com.
overpriced, creepy owners, poor value. So many other great restaurants in town. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY HERE
Atmosphere nice, food great, owners southern! I have lived in the south my entire life..most of these reviews are from people that haven't! Never be rude about a lady and her family because of a meal you thought was ok to begin with apparently they are working hard to make it great experience . Hatefulness go back up north!
Too Meat Lovers, take notice. Nice Restaurant, however when you buy there top steak a 32oz porterhouse cooked WARM RARE for $72US you would expect exactly that. Steak that arrived was a mere T-bone not porterhouse and maybe 24oz at best. I know some of you will say that there is shrinkage due to cooking and the weight of the bone, but having had this steak there before, there was a noticeable change in size this time. I feel is you are paying the prices for there steaks at least make it close to the weight advertised. Enjoy at your own risk.
Their menu has been updated, they have a great new chef formerly from Oak Steakhouse and this guy cooks his ass off. Have had a dozen great meals there over the last few months. Super delicious and prices are now very reasonable.
They closed down.
There will be a big Silent Auction, Kid Zone, snacks & drinks available for purchase and prizes given to those who support our Food Drive by bringing a non-perishable food item to be donated! Help us make this event great!

This place has always been on my bucket list because of all the negative remarks. No business could stay in business if they were true.
Went there tonight and I thought it was great. The food was totally excellent and the service was extreme. I have been through a formal apprenticeship, worked in several country clubs in Atlanta, and have eaten at a few fine places which gives me a little perspective.
Billy Hall came off as genuine and personable and took the time to schmooze my 80 year old Mom. She loved him. I would cross the street to shake his hand.
Tommy is the Man great guy that has the best shrimp you can buy
The oysters were very good..... The chicken was greasy and over spiced ... Had a dozen good oysters then the bill came at $70.00... Was still hungry sorry never again
This is an awesome place! If you have not visited the vineyard and farm, you must do so during the 12th Muscadine Festival during Labor Day weekend of 2015.
Too many great things to write about this place! Everything I've tried so far has been top-notch. Happy that I work close by :-)
