My wife and I dined at Salt Air while in Rehoboth and had an excellent dinner. Salt Air is a stylish restaurant with a full bar and good wine list. The waitress brought a basket of crispy pitas with a delicious spread to the table....We began with the buttermilk biscuits with a pepper jam and apple butter spread and appetizers of seared pierogies with pancetta and clams in white wine. Both were delicious and the biscuits the best I have ever had. Entrees were the crab cakes and the pan seared scallops. The crab cakes were some of the best I have had. They were all crab and no filler. The scallops were seared perfectly. Salt Air was one of the best restaurants where I have dined. Salt Air is a must when in Rehoboth.More

We recently ate dinner at Salt Air. We were seated immediately and our server was very attentive. It was a pleasure to see other servers supporting each other. The cheese crackers and goat cheese spread was really tasty. We ordered the shrimp fry and the...brined chicken. The shrimp fry was huge. A large mound of boardwalk fries, topped with very large fried shrimp. It came with coleslaw, ketchup and cocktail sauce. The brined chicken was so tender and juicy, and the grits and wilted greens were perfect additions. Definitely a return to restaurant. Excellent food and service. Well done!More

We ordered two filet mignon that came with a delicious mushroom wine Demi glaze and edible flowers with mashed potatoes and asparagus. My Dad got the shrimp fry. They had a good wine selection.

Had a wonderful dinner there! Eclectic /funky but comfortable decor (not pretentious or ostentatious). Crispy/thin crackers served with a goat/cream cheese, lemon zest and garlic spread. We had crab eggs (deviled eggs with lump crab and deep-fried jalapeno rings on top), Main courses were divers...scallops on a bed of orzo and mixed vegetables; crab cakes on a bed of succotash. We split a delicious dessert of corn cake on a dollop of lemon curd with fresh blue/strawberries and whipped cream. Wait staff was super attentive without being annoying.More

Different eclectic menu. Excellent food. Presentation was spot on. We had dietary restrictions with needing to split dishes and kitchen and wait staff very accommodating for all of our tweaks. Definitely found a new best place to eat!

From the beginning it was obvious the wait staff didn't want to be there and they had just opened for the night. It wasn't as thought it was at the end of shift. Ordered the deviled eggs for a starter....we're still searching for any crab...meat...forget lump crab meat. The scallop entree consisted of 4 small scallops with a plate full of tasteless corn....very dissatisfying for $38 !More

Wonderful! We had tried and failed to get a reservation, but when we walked in, we were seated immediately at a bar table in an alcove at the front. It was Covid perfect, separate and private, with a view of everything. The food was phenomenal....I had the huge grilled peach and burrata salad, it was amazing! Perfect combination of flavors, not to miss if it's on the menu. My husband raved about the seafood corn chowder and the seafood stew. My halibut was good, but slightly overcooked/dry. Good service. We were really delighted with this restaurant, it's our new best place at the beach.More

I travelled to OC/Rehoboth with 2 gfs for a little getaway. Found your restaurant while looking for Rehoboth options since we were shopping up that way. Couldn't make a reservation, already booked but we took a chance and got there at 5ish and were seated...at the food bar (right outside the kitchen), which was fine. Two of us had scallops and one had fried shrimp. OMG. I wish there was one closer to the DMV, the food was EXCELLENT, biggest scallops I have ever seen, everything cooked to perfection, server was nice and we were served promptly. I have told many friends who frequent Rehoboth to run not walk.More

We have eaten here a number of times and the quality of the food is top notch. The fried shrimp and cornbread are superb. Beware, they will give you a lot of French Fries with that - - enough for 3 people. We substituted green...beans for the cole slaw due to an allergy, and the beans were fresh and delicious.More
