This place is one of my favorite place especially for special occasion. We celebrated a friend's birthday and we enjoyed the good food, ambiance and spectacular view of Seattle cityscape. The place was packed with prom guests but the crew were always nice and instantaneous. Just don't ever think of bringing your own cake as they charge slice fee of... More

Went to brunch on Saturday! The spread is amazing! I ate all that I could possible eat but there was so much more I wished I could try. Great view of the Seattle skyline and the waitstaff was superb! Don't miss it if you are in The area.

We visited on an absolutely perfect Saturday afternoon, felt like everyone in Seattle was out and about. The restaurant was very crowded. We were told there would be about an hour wait for a table for dinner so we opted for Happy Hour food with no wait for a table in the bar! i am not a seafood lover (I... More

If you are staying at a hotel in town, ask the concierge to make reservations for you at Salty's at Alki Beach. Salty's will send a complimentary limo to take you to their restaurant and return you to your hotel. They have a super view of the Seattle skyline overlooking the water. The King Salmon was great, as well as... More

Salty's has superb customer service. James brought the Salty's Limousine to our hotel to pick us up and take us to Alki beach for dinner. Gave us an informative tour on way there. James also escorted to fabulous window table with view of space needle, Seattle skyline, and even Mount Rainier. Beautiful May evening so we had great visibility too.... More

Go for the fresh lobster!! All the food is good, especially the chowder, but nothing compares to the lobster. The outdoor seating gives an amazing completion to this great dinner.

Salty's offered a shuttle service from our hotel to the restaurant. To our surprise the shuttle is actually a stretch limousine. James, the driver couldn't have been nicer, pointing out landmarks on our way to and from the restaurant. Once there, he escorted us to a table with an amazing view of the city and told us to stay as... More

Our favorite Happy Hour place in the Seattle area. We always end our Alki trips here. Why? Great, not good, food on the cheap. We love the Coconut shrimp and the prime rib sliders. Not typical bar food. Great service, great food. And, a view of Seattle 's skyline from their deck on the water. What's not to like?

Salty's on Alki beach is definitely a "go": Location is just awesome opposite Seattle downtown offering outstanding views on Seattle. Go there for sunset or just all day! Menue is extensive and food o.k. - nothing exciting! We were there with a big group and had menue. Signature dish is salmon - definitely good but I had better one in... More
