Dinner by the pool was LOUD with the DJ and pool/hotel guests were also using the tables as well. Our waitress was amazing but definitely stretched thin. They were out of several items to make drinks and a few menu items also. The food was good but this is definitely more of a place for a quick casual meal than for a nice dinner.

While the food was delicious the atmosphere was very loud and active. Band playing in the other room not bad but horribly loud. Lots of children running around. I felt sorry for servers trying to dodge them to serve food. We would probably not rush back.

Thanks for reviewing the restaurant. Thursdays are very busy here as we usually have a band playing. Our hope is the band will be outside throughout the summer which will reduce the noise level. We hope you will come back and give us another shot.

Surprisingly great little spot to eat inside the Holiday Inn right on the beach. Great atmosphere and the wait staff is super friendly. We had the peel and eat shrimp, fish tacos, cauliflower flat bread. It was all solid. Prices are good too. Don’t miss this gem! Parking is right at the hotel and we walked right in via the hotel lobby.

Made reservations, went there .... stood at the host desk where there was a sign that said please wait to be seated.... ten minutes later, the bartender, that was obviously the Only person working; yelled ‘sit wherever you want!’ We had booked‘outside’ - however we didn’t know the view would include and be mostly of the hotel pool and hot tub as well as its’ patrons. Went out to a corner table, that hadn’t been cleaned but did have a dirty bus towel on it readily available ( to I guess - help yourself). No waitstaff Anywhere in sight.
So.... I booked another reservation at a place 35 minutes away ( while using their WiFi) and we all walked out as unnoticed as when we arrived.
Booked at Local on the Water !! And that place was sooo worth the drive !!
I however will never even give Saltaire a try again!!
Oh, and I failed to mention that in the main dining area there was apparently an over forty wine and paint party taking up the whole entrance and window tables. Not for nothing but...

The food was delicious and fresh. The pimento cheese burger was amazing and the in-house made jelly was the perfect compliment to the beef. Highly recommend.

Honestly server was really nice but food all around needs an overhaul - the fried shrimp and avacados fries were the worst / fries were ok though. Salad was ok too but Caesar dressing not so great / sad that we can’t leave a better review but we loved the band - had a great time!!

Terrible... We stood for 5 to 10 minutes before anyone even bothered to seat us. The live music was so loud we couldn't hear ourselves think, altho a waitress (not ours) asked them to tone it down a bit and that helped.

Took 45 minutes to get eggs Benedict and an omelet. We were just getting ready to walk out the door when they showed up with food. The potatoes were cold & soggy (requested extra crispy) , and the eggs benedict were raw (specifically asked they make the poached eggs firm) and my husband had 3 leaves of spinach in his spinach and ham omelet.

We informed the waitress that the food was raw, potatoes were cold and not crisp AT ALL, food was lousy, everything was terrible and she just said OK sorry.

Thanks SerenaB for taking time to review the restaurant. I would like to personally apologize that you had issues while visiting our establishment. We are working hard to offer the highest level of service and food for our guests and we are as disappointed as you are that we failed. We will us this review as a coaching moment for our server and the kitchen. Please give us another try so we can show that this was an exception and not the norm. Kindest Regards, Wendy Foster, Director of Marketing

Extremely disappointing that even though we had had reservations for over a week, we arrived to a closed restaurant at 7:15. Apparently the restaurant closed at 7pm and no one bothered to notify us. A group of six arrived after taking two Uber cars. Extremely rude! Will not return and will share info with others. We went to Pizza Hyena instead where we were well waited on, had excellent food, and tipped well!

We had lunch at their poolside/beachfront patio. Service and drinks were great. Their signature burger is absolutely delicious!

This restaurant is in the Holiday Inn .... the food was good, the servers were very nice and overall it was good. Just know that you are eating in a hotel restaurant.

Hi MichaelH, Thanks for the review in June. You must try our restaurant again. We have a new chef and the food is out of this world. Eat on our deck and you will forget this is a hotel. Best, Wendy, DOSM

We enjoyed dining tonight at Saltaire. The remodeling was much needed. The food was very good! The dinner menu is limited currently but they should be getting their full menu soon. Myrtle vice is delicious if looking for a good drink!
