Our family of four (my husband and I and our two teenage girls) visited Salt Air during our family vacation in Rehoboth Beach. The attention to detail in the restaurant is wonderful- you feel that your meal is perfectly orchestrated from start to finish. We started with Chipotle Wings- flavorful with a kick that hit you after your first wing... More

Couldn't decide whether to eat here or next door.neither restaurant takes reservations.We ended up at Salt air because the wait was shorter. My husband and I both had the fried shrimp platters,very good.portions were huge,corn bread was excellent. Shared a pretzel cheesecake for desert delicious. Great atmosphere!!

The food was ok. I thought it had a chain vibe. They definitely try to rush you and our waitress was not very knowledgeable about the cheeseboard. She got a menu and read what was on it. The cheeseboard was actually very nice. My fried shrimp was nothing special and the coleslaw lacked flavor. They take limited reservations after 12... More

Nice atmosphere - casual and reminiscent of a spring garden. Attentive, knowledgeable waitstaff; manager and an owner (?) both stopped by the table. Had anchovy appetizer with cocktails, followed by entrees: 2 large crab cakes with asparagus and smashed potatoes for the hubby and shrimp and grits with green beans for me. Both were fresh, seasoned well, and delicious. If... More

Our party of four ordered the same dish, a seafood dish with scallops, shrimp, crab, and fish. Expertly prepared in a tomato garlic sauce, served with crisp bread for dipping and boy did we slop up the broth. It was the highlight of the evening. Reservations are highly recommended.

They had our reservation on the wrong night, but got us a table pretty quickly anyway. Excellent meal. Ordered seared tuna, expecting a simple dish on a plate; instead got a ridiculously good miso soup with lots of veggies and 3 lovely slabs of rare tuna. Cheese board and beach fries - superb. Great cocktails by Lauren.

We initially called the restaurant when it opened at noon about a reservation for 5 people that evening, but we were told they weren't taking reservations for that day. I had read all of the great reviews about the place so we decided to try anyways. When we walked in at 5, we were excited to see many empty tables.... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dining experience to celebrate our 30 year anniversary. Our server, Alex, was very knowledgeable and checked enough to make sure our experience was first rate. Considering the meals we had, I could see paying a lot more. But the chef(s) and manager here know how to keep their customers happy. It's simple, just have great quality... More

Salt Air is the most well decorated and themed restaurant in town. I love how the decor changes with each season. When you go, definitely look around and enjoy your surroundings. The service is also wonderful! I have dined at Salt Air many times over the past two years and have always enjoyed the "beach picnic." The food is fresh,... More
