Bright, sunny yellow umbrellas line the sidewalk outdoor cafe, and it's your first hint there's something very special about this place. Doors are flung wide open and beautiful sunshine adorns the dining areas inside and outside.

There's Po' Boys, Muffuletta's, Shrimp & Grits, Shrimp & Sausage Etouffe'e, Nola Style Barbeque Shrimp, Fried Green Tomatoes, Fried Chicken Thighs, and Deviled Eggs, to whet your tired and hungry soul.
Shall I go on? Pawley's Island Boil, Succotash, Collard Greens, Black-eyed Peas, Mac & Cheese, Hush Puppies, and Carolina Pulled Pork are served up hot and delicious.
As indicated on the menu on the Sol Facebook page, Southern cooking is divided into 7 different regions of the South. They are Appalachia, Cajun, Creole, Floribbean, Gullah, Low Country, and Soul Food. All are represented on the menu at Sol.
The Grand Opening just happened, and while the team is still figuring out the menu, they are taking recommendations. After all, they do need a winter menu, too.
