Were in Seattle for a cousin's wedding and so my daughter had to celebrate her birthday here so we took the whole family out to Salty's on Alkai beach and can't say enough about the panoramic windows of the restaurant overlooking the city. Champagne marinated oysters....mmmm! and other seafood! Family friendly and staff great to work with placing balloons on... More

We decided to return to Salty's for a recent anniversary, and overall the experience was delightful. The staff in our experience is always friendly and of course the view is the best in town -- nowhere else can you look at the skyline from a vantage point directly across Elliott Bay. Because it was our anniversary we were comped a... More

We visited Salty's three times during our extended stay in West Seattle. Every time everything was excellent, the food, the service, the views. Our first visit was for dinner. We had the Spanish octopus and oysters for appetizers. All good choices for seafood lovers. Both the tier 1 and tier 2 oysters are great they just have different flavors, we... More

We had just arrived in Seattle via long haul from London and were starting to feel a bit wobbly and spaced out. However we needed to stay up for at least another three hours to get into the time zone. A quick trip across the bay on the water taxi and a short walk and we were sitting in Saltys... More

This restaurant has been around for many years, and the reasons why are, great food, great view and great service. My wife had the warm seafood salad and I had a cup of the clam chowder and cod fish and chips. My wife's salad looked beautiful and tasted delicious. The chowder was very hot and flavorful. Cod fish and chips... More

It's been a while since I've been to Salty's so it was good to get back there. The food was great and portions very good. The only complaint was that we were seated inside and it was a bit warm sitting in a sunny spot - wish I had asked for something outside where it looked like most they were... More

I have heard for years about Salty's brunch and finally went today with the family. Their incredible reputation doesn't do them justice, this was some of the best service I have ever encountered. The food quality was all excellent and the mimosas were great. This is my second trip to Salty's in the past few months and I have to... More

Our family of 5 adults ate at this restaurant for dinner the end of June. We asked for a seat on the outdoor patio with a view of Seattle. The view was spectacular and we enjoyed being outside. The food for all five of us was wonderful! My non-fish eater husband thoroughly enjoyed the Jidori Half Chicken as one of... More

While on vacation my partner spares no expense when eating out. Since Aki Beach was part of his teen years he took me to the best eatery in West Seattle and what a treat it was. From beginning to end it was all superlatives. Order a Bowl of their World Class Clam Chowder and DO by all means ask for... More
