Husk restaurant question

Looks like I waited too long to make reservations for our late October visit as I can only get 5:30 or 9:30 reservations. I may just have us all eat a late breakfast and make a 5:30 reservation, but would prefer a little later.

I read they have a bar area. Do you need reservations for there? We will be in Charleston 10/28 and 10/29. What are the chances of 3 of us walking into the bar and gettting a seat at the bar or a table in the bar.

Thanks for your help.

  1. I know food is served in the bar, but I think I heard the menu is limited. You shouldn't need reservations.

    They also serve lunch, so you may want to consider that. We had lunch there last Saturday and with no reservations. There was no wait. And it was wonderful. I had the catfish with field peas and corn-yum. My friend had the shrimp and grits. Equally yum. If they have oatmeal pie, get some for dessert.

    1. Ate at the restaurant back in August. You should definitely call, because the bar is in an adjacent building, but I don't think they take reservations for it. I do know the that the bar is the only place where you can get one of their fabled cheeseburgers, but I doubt you can order off of the regular menu there. Let us know what you think!

        I decided to take an early reservation, 5:30. It's earlier than we usually eat but that is fine. It will give us plenty of time afterwards to wander and maybe get a second dessert elsewhere. Hey, I'm on vacation so what the heck.

        While I like cheeseburgers I think when at Husk I'd probably order something more creative. Very excited about dining there.
        Doing research now about where else to make reservations. Will post other questions in a separate post. Thanks all.

          When I have to eat that early, I like to console myself by having brunch around 10 and skip lunch so I have enough appetite. Might be a good time to try Hominy Grill or Fat Hen or some other brunch destination.

            That is exactly my plan. Eat a late breakfast and then our early dinner at Husk. And Hominy Grill is on my list of breakfast/lunch places so that might be where we go that day. Yum! Can't wait!
