“Oh what a night!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We enjoyed a perfect pre-cruise dinner at Salty's! Their limosine picked us up at our downtown hotel and drove us in style to this quality restaurant. We had a perfect table by the window and enjoyed the fabulous view and an exquisite sundown! The food is wonderful and service special. The halibut was some of the best we have enjoyed. We did so enjoy and have recommended to other couples. It will always be our list when we visit Seattle.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Loved this restaurant, They great food and a even better view of the city of Seattle! The restaurant was located on the opposite side of downtown so we got their by boat taxi and the view of downtown was spectacular! It was a little pricy though...

The views are beautiful, but pre-shucked oysters for their "World Famous Brunch"? Their brunch makes many claims it cannot deliver upon. Edgewater has beautiful views as well and their brunch is better.

“Always a stop”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Every time we travel to Seattle we take time out for the Salty's brunch. We have always enjoyed our brunch, focusing on the seafood selection and the amazing desserts. The wait staff is fun and attentive despite the craziness of the place on the weekends. Highly recommend.

“Best Brunch Ever”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

We had heard about their brunch. It was amazing!! It does cost quite a bit, but what do you expect for all you can eat crab legs, fish, pastas, omelets, desserts and so much more. Make sure you sit outside to see an awesome view of Seattle. The waitstaff is amazing, very nice. I would recommend to make reservations or you might be waiting a long while.The restaurant was very amazing and we would go back if we are ever in Seattle again.
