I love this place! The open buffet is definitely my favorite. There are so many varieties and the dessert bar is just amazing. If you love brunchs definitely go, the view is also wonderful.

Although we couldn't sit outside, being right by the window was the next best thing. The view of the Seattle skyline on a bright sunny day is hard to beat. The food was also delicious--I had an amazing salad.

We had this place recommended by multiple people while in Seattle for vacation. They were totally correct. The food was fabulous and service was wonderful! Our waitress was great and we never felt rushed. Best of all was the great view and location. We sat out on the deck which was comfortable and provided a wonderful view of the skyline... More

My husband and I were picked up by their limo and enjoyed a dinner with an amazing view. Do not leave without trying the firecracker prawns. Amazing! You will leave with amazing pictures of the city skyline.

Love the drinks and always friendly people. I also love the coconut shrimp. This place is always fun to sit in just to watch the water front. Never had anything on the menu I did not like.

Always heard about Salty's weekend buffet but this was just dinner with family. Awesome! The food (bbq salmon) was perfect, the suggested wine was excellent and the service superb. My appetizer salad (tomato)was all flavor. even the bread and butter were delicious. And rare for me, I had no room for dessert. The dining room was well muted, able to... More

My husband and I made our second trip to Seattle this year and made reservations at Salty's per our daughter's suggestion. We were treated like royalty with awesome food, a spectacular view of the Seattle skyline, and a mini wine lesson. Chris, who is an expert restaurant manager, and the employees take the restaurant's reputation personally. We watched them all... More

We had halibut at Salty's and it was one of the best meals I've had.....cooked to perfection and they graciously split the dish for us. Great service and hospitality with great views of Seattle.

Our server Samantha was great too & we really enjoyed meeting her. Took Uber to / from our hotel in downtown Seattle with no... More
