The food was wonderful! Great for a special occasion. Loved how everything was locally sourced.
We have enjoyed this gem of the summer 2021 3 times the past 6 weeks and will miss it very much until next summer. Can’t say enough great things about the entire experience. From the tine we checked in our reservation to leaving for the evening, absolutely welcoming, professional, amazing quality and service. Can’t wait to see what they plan for next year.
Great menu, and great food. We will be back.
We were pleased to finally get a reservation to Summer Salt. It was worth the wait. We met Heather (owner) who talked to us about her farm and where they get all of their fish, meat, vegetables, etc. For a small space, it was surprisingly quiet and comfortable with a beautiful view of the dunes and ocean. All of the staff were great and attentive. The food was beautifully prepared and every course was delicious. We loved the tasting menu and there was more than enough to eat. I can't wait to go back. Summer Salt is a welcome addition to the Avalon dining scene.
This pop- up restaurant was delightful! Great addition to dinner options in Avalon.
Best dinner I’ve had at the shore in a very long time. Service was great, setting is lovely and food was delish!
Excellent, friendly, unassuming service in a laid back atmosphere with phenomenal food!!
Another wonderful dinner! It gets better every time
Wonderful hospitality and the food was fabulous.
This restaurant has top notch food and service. It is a price fixed menu with multiple courses. Our dinner last night had a selection of mushroom, Chicken and Scallops as the main course. Our group had the chicken and scallops and both were delicious. The appetizers courses were delicious. I cannot say enough about this fabulous restaurant with a great dune view this year.
Amazing Farm to Table experience. Fresh, innovative and creative. The combinations of ingredients brought fresh from their "Bayleaf Farm" each day is a must have dining experience. Cheers to Chef Connor and the beautiful Heather, a couple that has certainly knocked it out of the park. - Lauren
It was a lovely dining “experience”. Everyone was very attentive. The food was well presented, refreshing!, delicious! We even ate a few things we wouldn’t have chosen but everything had such wonderful flavoring we liked it!
Wow! What a fantastic experience. The food was amazing. Particularly the scallops and the dessert - so seasonal and fresh. I can’t wait to go back!!!
Finally got reservations and am so bummed we won't be able to get back in before the end of their season. Laid back vibe - everything sourced from Cape May County and what ever the fish catch is that day is what they serve. The owners are lovely and put their heart into everything. Will go back for sure!
the family who run the restaurant are efficient, charming, and hard working. the service is exceptional. I’m so sorry to say that the food isn’t and thus the hard to support the fixed price.
It was a very lovely place, sit outside if you can, the view is breathtaking. Food was delicious but just needed more of it. Left a little hungry.
Great service, food and setting. The owner actually drove to the liquor store to buy wine for us. Because we didn’t know it was BYOB…. Who does that???
Great attention to make sure we enjoyed the night.
Loved it. The people, the food, the ambiance at the outdoor tables. Would go again for a special occasion.
The food was delicious but a bit overpriced for what we got.
Absolutely incredible experience! The views are gorgeous and the menu is perfectly curated. Each dish was fresh, inventive, and delicious.
Every morsel of food that crosses my lips was delectable! The owner (wish I could remember her name) was our server and she was a delight. You can see the love and passion she has for this fabulous place. The views of the red August moon were spectacular! Can’t wait to return
Very unique and potentially outstanding venue. It was disappointing that we had prior to our visit informed the restaurant of a gluten free restriction for one person. The result was a pretty poor effort to accommodate that person, especially when I had received an enthusiastic response to my request. Entrees(scallops) were outstanding, and the gluten dessert(cake) was as well. A great concept. Hope it continues to evolve.
This place offers a one of a kind dining experience you wont forget! Food has tons of flavor. Portions arent huge so if youre starving I would have a snack or reschedule your reservation. Ambiance and food is amazing though!
We enjoyed this dinner/restaurant! Farm to table local food with fun tasting side plates. Everything was so fresh. Love the back deck. Service was excellent. Front of restaurant is the only complaint...just needs some TLC and maybe if the pop up becomes permanent they will add the finishing touches.
Wonderful meal, gracious hosts. Can’t wait to come back next summer!
Wonderful experience. Most of the dishes were outrageously interesting and tasty. The mushroom dish was the least favorite but we loved it all.
Lovely-service was wonderful-setting is beautiful. Food was delicious-very different-great experience. Only suggestion is to get more comfortable chairs or get cushions. Byob is great.
OUTSTANDING! Best restaurant meal we’ve had to date. We were lucky to grab a table after the weather cleared as it was booked for the month. Definitely going back! More than 5 stars.
Very delicious food and the view is spectacular
Awesome. Server could had been a bit more attentive.
Our meal was wonderful and the setting next to the beach very nice.
However, our table was up against the building and the back door to the adjacent arcade full of kids and load game machines. Very annoying. We suggest no one sit next to this door.
Excellent service, delicious food, lovely setting. We went for our anniversary. Dress for warm weather as there is no air conditioning. We would highly recommend Summer Salt!
The food is absolutely phenomenal - everything is fresh and delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.
We had a wonderful time. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and efficient. Eating great food with a view of the dunes and the ocean was special.
My boyfriend and I dined at Summer Salt and did the fixed price tasting menu. The food was absolutely incredible - so fresh, organic, and locally sourced. Our waitress was extremely nice and helpful and went out of her way to accommodate us. Our table had a spectacular view of the dunes, and the entire restaurant had such a welcoming and warm ambiance. Some of the best food we’ve ever had! We will DEFINITELY be coming back.
Food was delicious, service was excellent and looking out at the dunes and the ocean was breathtaking.
Excellent experience! The food and ambiance were outstanding! Highly recommend.
Fantastic food, super service, awesome atmosphere.
For all the hype we were truly disappointed. The food simply was not that great. The chicken main course that my spouse and our friend had was literally tough- they both commented it was dry and tough and not a good experience. The scallops were ok. Appetizers were interesting- fried beets unusual and the tomato salad was great. The others were just ok.
The hosts are really nice folks. Service was ok. Given the price is fixed at 75$ per head would have expected more.
We booked because of the reviews so maybe we just had an outlier experience.
Anyhow, won’t be trying it again. There are many other dining choices in the area where we have had great experiences for less.
