This was our first time going to Sea/&/Salt. We had wanted to visit for a while now and it did not disappoint! Chef Blake created a delicious combination with the Surf & Turf (red wine braised short rib, scallops, broccolini, risotto)! The scallops were cooked perfectly and the short rib was so tender. The wine demi glaze was awesome! Loved... More

Good place for happy hour. Fish is fresh and butchered on the premises. Staff are friendly and welcoming.

Chef Blake has a free hand in the kitchen and his creations are excellent. Lobster cuppichino (bisque that looks like cappuccino is excellent. Great Crab cakes, Seared tuna appetizer, Pork chop and... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the tasting menu planned for us by Chef Blake Ferris. The chef came to our table and sought our input on possible items. He shared options and we provided our preferences. We opted to go heavy on the seafood since he indicated it was very fresh. Loved the Rappahanock oysters with the sorbet. Very nice tuna and the... More

We ordered the scallop and grits, bacon, egg cheeseburger and the breakfast burrito. It was all very tasty. I wish we had saved room for dessert. Their cakes and pies looking amazing!

My wife and I were shopping for furniture and noticed a sidewalk chalkboard in front of Nonnah's with a unique menu on it and decided to give it a try. We were professionally greeted and seated and our server welcomed us to "SEA & Salt" and proceeded to tell us about the tasting menu. It had a lot of items... More

We went for lunch and the food was amazing but they don't have a very kid friendly menu. Desserts are great! If you go you have to try the lobster bisque!

We stopped in for a quick dessert and were surprised to find a full menu overseen by an award winning chef. The menu features local, fresh products presented in an innovative way.
