Salty’s staff was so awesome and accommodating - Took my mom and sister to a classic Seattle dinner While they were visiting from out of town and Salty’s made the occasion so special. Crew was amazing, and food was phenomenal. Thanks!

Beautiful location and the staff is so friendly! On my reservation, I noted that it was for my boyfriend's birthday and when we got there, there was a card and confetti on the table, which made it even more special.

Absolutely loved the Sunday Brunch! The entire staff and all the tasty food items were well worth the price. The flourless chocolate cake was a yummy bonus to the whole experience. We went for a birthday celebration and were happily surprised at how the table was decorated with "Happy Birthday confetti" and even a very thoughtful birthday card signed by the entire Salty's at Alki Beach staff. Thank you again Salty's for a wonderful brunch.

Such a beautiful setting. The service was exceptional. The food was amazing. We celebrated 3 birthdays (2 of them for my twins’ 21st bday). They made them feel extra special.

Average at best buffet style brunch/lunch for two with two drinks $196 (with tip). This could be the absolute worse brunch for the price I’ve ever had. Service was great, but inexplicably pricey for what you get.

I made last minute reservations for my 25th wedding anniversary online and my wife and I showed up an hour later. Even with the late notice, they sprinkled rose petals on our table and gave us a nice card. The food was delicious and all of the servers wished happy anniversary! My wife says that Salty’s on Alki is her new favorite place.

Still the best special occasion brunch option in the city if you’re a seafood lover. We made the most of our family’s love of fresh crack/slurp/peel crab, oysters, shrimp for sure.

The warm buffet line could be kept at a better temp and offer more innovative dishes but there are so many other options it doesn’t detract significantly.

The live tanks in the waiting area need a major clean/refresh and there were no plates or napkins for the pastries. Not compatible with Saltys hard earned reputation and definitely needs attention.

Salty's is a forever Seattle icon. The menus isn't huge; features Pacific NW cuisine favorites and well as steaks for the "landlubbers". The view looking east to downtown Seattle is spectacular. Highly recommend Salty's for drinks, dinner and/or any occasion. I'll be back soon!

This was a first experience where it was just kinda bland. Smaller amounts of dessert, missing small things like skewers for fountains, food not stocked, arranged funny, missing soup bowls, server was ok, my table wasn't big enough for all four of our plates and water and drinks.

I mentioned to our hostess that it was a make up Valentine's Day dinner and they brought rose petals to our table and complimentary dessert and champagne it was very nice. If you go in ask to be seated in nachos section. He was very gracious. And super helpful.

This restaurant has a great location for a gorgeous view of Seattle at night. That sets the tone for the meal as well as the great reception and service. The food is good and well made with a well balanced menu. It is pricey but a great experience.

We went to Sally’s for Crabby Monday. A bib. A picker. Wipes. Butter. Lemon. A whole cracked dungeness crab on a plate. That’s it. What could be more perfect?

Prime rib dinner was a good value. Came with mashed potatoes and asparagus. Both vegetables were very tasty. Requested med-rare prime rib, but dinner companion requested rare. As a result, I also got rare. Rare prime rib is very difficult to cut. Tendons like tough string. Steak knives couldn't handle the rare meat. Maybe a sharper knife would have helped. If you order rare, bring your own sharp knife. Or if you order med rare and get rare, send it back. Salty's is always obliging.

We went to Salty's for our anniversary. The table had rose petals on it with a card. They also managed to get us a window seat which was difficult given that the place was packed. We had a very good time!

Almost no vegan options and just a couple vegetarian... but my omnivore family loved it!!

Amazing view of Seattle.

Don’t skip the pasta station.

Cinnamon roll was one of the best I’ve ever had.

Great view, friendly service, and good buffet food for brunch, but expensive. From an omelette station to pasta or snow crabs to eggs Benedict, they have extensive options. You’ll be full at the end of your visit.
