Came to Seattle for a convention and made a trip here. Ordered the fish taco while other ordered fish and chips and the daily prawn special. The amount of fish was slightly less than normal. However everyone's food tasted good. Side jalapeño sauce was spicy and delicious. Basket of bread comes with 3 types of breads. The rosemary was my... More

We went there for brunch on a Sunday morning. One MUST make reservations well in advance if you want to eat at "brunch" time. All the food is on the buffet but the variety is amazing. They do make omelets and dessert crepes - both outstanding - and do have a carving station as well as tons of seafood to... More

A great experience. Good food, but nothing was really exceptional. Water taxi, fun short walk to the restaurant and the views make this hard to pass up.

The view, the food, the service, all awesome! I am not a fish lover but had the halibut with crab and it was to die for! Portions were just right and not over the top. The deserts looked fabulous but we did not get any because we were too full. Inside and outside dining available.

Salty's for Sunday Brunch is not just a meal, it's an experience. Situated with a view of the Sound and the Seattle Skyline was our first pleasant surprise. We made reservations but were able to come a bit early. While waiting Salty's provides coffee, tea and juice and individually bagged scones with raspberry jam to make the wait a little... More

A group of friends came out from Colorado and I wanted to prove that Seattle was more beautiful than Denver. So in typical tourist style I sent them to all the landmarks, including Salty's. The view was stunning. The waiter did his introduction of himself and described the daily special. After taking our order he neglected to check on our... More

As visitors to Seattle we can never get enough of the view or the fresh seafood and Salty's the place for both. We had dinner with friends who live in Seattle and this was one of their favorites. How can you say no to beautifully grilled octopus or if that's not to your taste the Manila clams in butter and... More

Brunch on a glorious Sunday afternoon. Raw oysters, crab claws and everything was delicious. Would return again. We took Uber there, after our mealnwe needed to walk a bit. The views of Seattle on a clear day, water taxi back to pier 50.

We only stopped for a drink and some oysters after a water taxi ride so I can only offer a partial review. But the beer on tap selection was excellent, the oysters were great and the view of downtown Seattle was fantastic.
