REST? Webmachine http://webmachine.basho.com/
Webapp, AJAX, jQuery? Nitrogen http://nitrogenproject.com/
Build it yourself from the ground up? Mochiweb https://github.com/mochi/mochiweb
Rails/django-esque? Chicago Boss http://www.chicagoboss.org/
Don't forget Yaws, too, which is web server that makes it easy to serve dynamic content http://yaws.hyber.org/

I can't really speak for the others (ErlyWeb, Misultin etc) as I haven't used them. Underneath you'll often find Mochiweb. 

I can't recommend Nitrogen highly enough, I found myself productive in it very quickly and the mailing list is excellent. That would be my first port of call for a new web app.
