Our cuisine can be labeled many things, but it is most definitely seasonal. Our service is professional, yet far from stuffy. Our décor is modern, yet simple, and our wine list is extensive. Perhaps most important of all, everyone from our servers and bartenders, to our chefs and management, are among the most dedicated service industry professionals in our community.

Never disappoints

Quiet atmosphere and fantastic, friendly service. The shrimp and grits were amazing, and my husband says that the fried chicken is the best he's ever had anywhere (he got it both times we went). I also got the glazed salmon one time, and that certainly did not disappoint, either! There's a... read more

What a lovely restaurant! We were looking for a great restaurant on short notice and when we couldn't get a table online before 8:30, we decided to call. We were told that there is open seating in the bar and that if we got there early there should be no wait. That is precisely what happened. It may have been... More

We are so fortunate to live close to such a wonderful restaurant as Solstice! We decided to go during Restaurant Week and had another fabulous meal. We had the pork cheek tacos and fried green tomatoes for appetizers which were both excellent, then had the pork and mahi mahi special entrees before having a delicious chocolate caramel dessert and cheese....

It's been excellent every time we've been there. I've had many different dishes and all have been wonderful with very good service. This is truly one of the best restaurants in the Midlands.

We really enjoyed our one-and-only visit and will definitely go back. It's nice and quiet and the food is very good, served up in perfect portions. We'll make this a regular stop when in Columbia.

The "French Onion" fillet was one of the best steaks my wife has ever eaten. It had a wonderful flavor, was extremely tender and cooked perfectly. The Pork steak with pimento cheese the fried green tomatoes were also excellent. The hostess and server were professional and efficient but not particularly friendly and seemed to be rushing us. Also, different than... More

Magnificent Flounder with grits and green beens. The chocolate cheese cake had the perfect blend of flavor, reminding me of the type they serve at the Monterey Bay's Fishermen's Grotto. My friends had chicken and sirloin...everybody loved it!!!!
