Good food, Excellent View!

We went to Sunday brunch celebrating a couple of birthdays. We had a window table with an absolutely beautiful view of Seattle! The price of $50 pp was reasonable, considering the fact that there is a lot of seafood, including Dungeness crab. Also, there is prime rib that was done to perfection... read more

once again we brought the family for the Saturday brunch. Not much has changed. all the food you can eat and we were not disappointed. Everything was prepared well and to our delight we drew the best table in the house... By the windows and looking straight at downtown Seattle.

What can I say that was not perfect about my wedding anniversary dinner? My wife has several food allergies and they worked with us to accommodate and present a stupendous meal. We took a lot of time to figure it all out, but never once did we feel rushed. The food was perfect in every way. Portion, presentation, taste, and... More

This restaurant has a great location looking over the Seattle harbour. That's pretty much where the good stuff ends for us. The service was slow. The food ordinary and over seasoned. Steaks came out over cooked and lukewarm. Very pricey for what was average fare.

Whether you're visiting the area or a local, Salty's on Alki is one of the best places to go for ambiance, great happy hour selections and an incredible view of downtown Seattle across the water. You can usually get a good seat, though the best ones on the deck are packed when the sun is out. My favorites include: A... More

The food wasn't too bad, but I definitely enjoyed the view. A local colleague recommended the spot and I really enjoyed a few drinks and a decent meal while overlooking downtown Seattle. Sit outside if it's nice out and take it all in!

Excellent dinner with large portions. We ate in the bar area which has fantastic views. Portions of the bar are raised so everyone gets a view--but the window seats are best! Lots of fresh seafood variety.

This was the 2nd year for me choosing Salty's (Alki) for my birthday brunch. Everything from the crab legs to the Fair Scones was simply delicious. Lots of seafood, carved meats, breads, pastries, eggs, salads, etc. There is no way you will walk away hungry. Even though the restaurant has been packed both times, there is never any real waiting... More

January 9th, Salty's kept the holiday colors up and added Seahawks furor to their eclectic mix. It was colorful and celebratory. Their entertainment (combo band that played great oldies music), service and view of Seattle were all excellent. The waiter was a very easy-to-like fellow, was very busy but did a super job of making sure our needs were met.... More
