Southern
SOL Southwest Kitchen is a family-friendly establishment featuring indoor & outdoor dining, food with bold Southwest flavors and “just juiced” cocktails. Our made-from-scratch dedication has made SOL a local favorite since 2013!

SOL blends bold flavors of the Southwest with our own Southern culinary influences. We like to keep things fresh. With a focus on dishes that let seasonal ingredients and select spices shine. The real star of our kitchen is our wood fire grill, and all menu items—from sauces to salsas to handcrafted cocktails—start from scratch and are made to order. All tequilas are 100% agave, citrus fruits are juiced daily, and avocados aren’t cut until you order guacamole.

They had our table set for 8 when we requested 12. Took a long time to get drinks, our waters were cleared way too earlier while we were still there, and one busser spilled water all over me.

I’ve gone to both locations (Mt P and Downtown) for a few years now and it is always great. The food is awesome, the service is outstanding, and I love the ambience. It’s also a very good value considering other locations in the area. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes great food at a decent price.

Always had good experience at SOL in Mt. Pleasant and this was our first time at the Charleston location. Service was excellent but food was like warm and none of the seven of us thought it tasted very good.

This place was phenomenal! We are definitely eating here again on our next visit. I highly recommend the lobster quesadilla and the bison enchiladas! The Mexican Street corn was amazing too.

From start to finish the whole experience was wonderful. Our server was dry and attentive- drinks and apps came out quick.

We never felt the need to “flag” down our server. She was there checking on us at just the right moments.

- trio of salsa, quest and guacamole - 💯
- Mexican corn 💯
- flat iron steak 💯
- sea bass 💯 but he wished there was more to the plate 🤷‍♀️
- steak salad 💯
- 16 Oz ribeye 💯

We left NOTHING on our plates 🤣🤣🤣

The location is a block off King Street, so do not have second thoughts if the restaurant isn’t as busy as others. The food and drinks are very good. And less busy translates into even better service.

Very disappointed in taste of food. My daughter and I were visiting in Charleston and opted for dinner at SOL. We ordered two different things and neither of us liked the taste. Our waitress was very nice. We just did not express our opinion of the food to her. We will not go back nor recommend to anyone. Nice place but poor food quality.

The margarita’s were clearly watered down. The Napoleon was served cold and pork carnitas were dry, tasted like saw dust. My husband had fish tacos. The fish were practically nonexistent, measuring approximately 2 inches by 1/2 inch. The tacos were warm not hot. We will be sure to avoid SOL in the future.

Came for a casual brunch with friends and we had so much fun! I loved that the patio doors were totally opened and we were able to have some fresh air while still sitting inside. It seemed like a really busy Sunday brunch but our server Jared was awesome and was attentive to our table without making us feel rushed on such a busy day. Everyone's food looked delicious and we took advantage of the $10 bottomless mimosa deal!

I went here with my husband and another couple before a concert at the Music Farm. I had read some bad reviews so I was reluctant but it was so convenient to the Music Farm so I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did because everyone loved it. It was good weather so we sat outside on the patio. The atmosphere was very nice. It was quiet and nicely lit. Everyone enjoyed their food and I have no complaints about the service.

The ambiance, location, and customer service was perfect. The chicken quesadilla was not that great because it was more cheese than meat. I could barely taste the meat and it was not good. Great place for a date night and some drinks tho. The food just needs a little fine tuning. Very reasonably priced as well.

Overall, we’ll be back. We just wished the food was better
