“Pricey but tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

Visited on a Wed. night in early Oct. Cost came to about $50 per person. I had an excellent seafood stew, like San Francisco cioppino. Others in party had halibut, crab cakes, and shrimp and grits - all good choices. Interesting but overpriced cocktails. Worth going again.

“Just came back from dinner.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We dined here tonight the good was fantastic. From soup to desert. Everything was delicious. Our waitress Trisha was so helpful. A great sense of humorous. I wish her the best of luck when she is deployed to Germany.

We had dinner at this excellent place. Only downside is the wait, but the food is worth it. The food presentation is outstanding and the desserts are wonderful!

“As good as it gets for a beach town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Salt Air was a very good restaurant and much better than most of its competitors in Rehoboth Beach, where mediocrity rules the culinary roost. The food is fresh and well-prepared, the service is crisp and the portions are just right. This was our best dining experience during our visit. The restaurant is somewhat noisy, but that is not easily avoidable since it is often packed. Reservations appear to be a must if you want to dine at Salt Air.

“Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

If you want small and cozy,this is probably not the place for you.
The bar is large and was packed when we were there. Lively and fun and good drinks.
Reservations are a very good idea. We did not have them but waited only about half an hour.
The space is large but the rooms unfold from one to the other.
My crab cakes were outstanding with huge lumps of crab and seasoned perfectly. My husband was very pleased with his shrimp.My only complaint was the crab and squash soup was much too sweet,so much so, I didn't finish it.
When I mentioned it to the waitress, her response was,"We'll, I like it".
