We were staying at a hotel downtown (in from TX) and the concierge arranged for the Saltys Limo to pick us up at hotel and then we were returned back 3 hrs later (thx Tom, excellent driver).

Salty's at Alki Beach is an institution. Do not walk in here without a reservations for a Sunday Brunch, we got lucky and got seated in 40 Mins, you might not. How ever there are fresh Scones and Coffee to ease your pain of waiting. The whole town is at Salty's here. After being seated I made a beeline to... More

The seating is great! You can enjoy great views! The food was really good! Our service was really good too! It always seems to be easier to complain when a dinner is that pricy, but no complaints here! It was very good!

Seafood at its very best! Crab, clam chowder, scallops, and great wine! I cannot relay to you how good every single dish I had was. Please go experience for yourself. The view and service was excellent as well!

Whenever we have out-of-town guests, they are always treated to brunch at Salty's, offered on Saturdays and Sundays. Our guests have all raved about the food and atmosphere, with the only complaint at the end of the meal that they can't fit more food in their distended tummies! The food is top-notch, specializing in loads of fresh seafood dishes, most... More

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. There are many breakfast items as well as... More

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
