I ate at Huck's last night for the third time, and I'm always impressed when I go. I usually end up getting one of the specials, because they sound amazing. Last night I had a pretzel crusted bass with match-string potatoes, red cabbage, and this really delicious stone ground mustard sauce. I've tried the pork chop and fried chicken from the regular menu and was very happy with both. Our table also ordered two bottles of wine, since they were 1/2 price (something we definitely appreciated!), and it was one of the best pinot noirs I've had for a very good price. The service is top-notch, and you can't beat the unique cocktails.

To the person from MD who ordered two different things with crabcakes and was disappointed, I question why, when you could have the best crabcakes at home, you would order them when visiting Charleston (even though I find it hard to believe anything would not be good at Huck's).

I have to completely disagree with the last review. I've eaten at Huck's at least a half dozen times since they've opened and never had a bad meal. I'm originally from the northeast, have had the Maryland crab and find Huck's just as good. However, there is plenty of other great choices on the menu and I recommend the awesome fish tacos. As for waiting for a table; it is a small restaurant and reservations are definitely in order. I can understand waiting 45 minutes if you just show up and expect to be seated. Back to the food; the food has always been perfectly cooked and spiced and the wait staff and management come by and check on you all the time to make sure all is well. I highly recommend Hucks.

and no...I dont work there and I'm not related to anyone who does :)

I usually try to give a restaurant 2 chances before I critique but this place was so absurdly overpriced it's not worth it. Overall, the meal was good and the chef creative, but the dining experience was horrible. The atmosphere is frenzied with staff buzzing everywhere, not congruent with a relaxed beach environment. Our server was prompt but startlingly loud. Our bread was OK but had a cinnamon taste, that's fine but with olive oil?? The food came out quickly adding to the fast pace feel. OK, I get the point, in-out-next. I would label this place as a tourist trap with no focus on repeat business. Far too many excellent restaurants in Charleston that deliver the whole package for me to come back again. Good luck.

After waiting 45 minutes for a table we were eager to sample the food. We tried the fried oysters which are the best thing on the menu....the shrimp hushpuppies were a bland disappointment. Skip the crabcake and fried green tomato stack..it was terrible. My son and I had the CRAB STUFFED FLOUNDER, roasted john's island beet pilaf, old bay creme fraiche...all 6 at the table agreed it was just nasty...my husband had the duck which was dreary, undercooked (blood red) and underseasoned...During our 1 week stay we ate our way through Charleston and had some fantastic meals, but Hucks was the single worst dinner I've had in years...so disappointing! If you are from Maryland (as we are)do yourshelf a favor and skip anything with crabmeat. I'd skip this restaurant!

I was recently staying in Isle of Palms and took my family to Huck's. We had a great experience. Wonderful wines! and the fried chicken is great. Had we stayed longer we would have visited more than once and will be returning on our next trip.
I give this restaurant a 10. Do yourself a favor and visit when in town.

Just had to reply to the guy from Maryland. Hate to tell those Chesapeakers that they ran out of crabs years ago up ther and now they buy their crabs from down here.
