Steamed or Chilled Dungeness Crab by the Cluster
Drawn butter. Wine Pairing: L'ecole Chenin Blanc, $34: Chenin blanc with its light body but fresh citrus flavors compliment crab
Colossal Bering Sea Red King Crab Leg
At over one pound per leg, these beauties are the penultimate treat! Sourced directly from Alaska there is no better king crab experience. Included with our leg is a bowl of chowder, caesar salad, and to put a bow on the experience, a slice of our signature white chocolate mousse cake. Wine Pairing: Pomum Cellars Riesling, $38: We like riesling or albarino for their refreshing light bodied zip
We have been to Salty’s for many special occasions & are never disappointed. It is also where we love to bring out of town visitors to show off our beautiful Pacific Northwest!
We dined outside on a beautiful day - It was perfect for an Anniversary celebration.
Salty's is one of my favorites! Halibut was great.
Excellent food! My husband and I go on special occasions and everything has been wonderful. The huckleberry lr.on drop is AMAZING! I can't say enough good things about Salty's
Carl was a kind and helpful waiter. Attentive and personable!! Food was great! View from our table couldn’t have been better!
Carly at the front reception was warm and helpful both in person and on the phone. She set aside a lovely table for us as our son had just arrived in Seattle to begin chemo.
Superb customer service!
Wonderful good, great service, unbeatable view. It's an enduring classic for a reason and the perfect spot for a special occasion or taking out of town visitors.
Excellent service, great food.
Surprisingly delightful experience in the outdoor tent, in a rainstorm. Food was extraordinary (xtra tart Key Lime Pie — yay!) The service was very good, but do work on keeping it a bit more unobtrusive and “invisible”.
We had such a great time at Saltys! The food was amazing and the service outstanding. Also, we received a free slice of their homemade cake for my partner's birthday celebration. It is 10/10 recommended.
Hi Sadie, thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to leave us this review! We are so thankful you chose to join us for your celebration. We hope to see you again soon!
Wait staff was amazing especially our main waitress.
Victor was a very pleasant and attentive waiter. We were very pleased with the extra steps taken to help us celebrate our anniversaries. We found the meal very tasty and a very good value. The view was also very much enjoyed by our out of town guests (who were also on their honeymoon) and the outdoor seating area protected us very well from the chill and rain that came before we finished our meal.
It was perfect! The drinks and dinner were delicious and the service was great! This was our second time here after having had a rather disappointing first visit. This made up for it and more! Looking forward to going back!
Beautiful ambiance. Food was delicious, server was knowledgeable and confident. No excessive waits for food, but did not rapidly take/bring our orders so as not to make us feel rushed. Would definitely go back.
Delicious food. The lobster bucatini was delicious and so was the mixed seafood plate. Service was amazing, Tiffany was our waitress and recommended the two dishes we ordered and the bread appetizer. She knew the menu very well. The view was the cherry on top. A must stop for anyone who goes to Seattle. And get the oysters!
Lovely view, easy parking +
Elevator for mobility challenged guest. Great service & lots of choices on the menu but wine list is a tad pricey.
We celebrated our anniversary. The whole crew was so sweet, so welcoming and made this evening perfect for our special occasion.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
Another great experience at Salty’s! My family was visiting Seattle for the first time and I wanted to dazzle them with good seafood and good views. They were very impressed. Our waitress was excellent too and let me order the pasta without clams (since I am not a seafood person).
There’s only one place like Saltys on Alki in Seattle. Take the water taxinif you’re staying DT and live la beach life elevated!
Great food and service. Very happy we made the drive to West Seattle for dinner at Salty's!
Nice clean great service
Adam was a great server
Saltys has a wonderful view and amazing food, I would highly recommend
Thank you so much for joining us, Kyle! We appreciate this wonderful review and look forward to your next visit.
We sat outside under a clear plastic tent that protected us from a downpour (this is Seattle right?) and later presented a perfect view of the city when the skies cleared. Ta-da! Delicious and well-cooked fish and seafood pasta dishes were well worth the longer drive from the city. The waitstaff were excellent.
The staff did a great job of celebrating our family’s special occasion. The service and food was wonderful
Everything was prepared perfectly
Every time I go here I am not disappointed! It doesn't matter what you order but if you so happen to order that 14 oz lobster tail, make sure you order the feast! And try the cream sherry in your clam chowder, you will not be disappointed!
Tracy was our server. She was so great. You guys decorated the table for our 9 year old’s birthday and he was so excited. He said the complimentary cake we took home was the best cake he’s ever had. Now they’re asking for crab legs and shrimp every day. We will be back. Older son says it was the best meal EVER.
Made my daughters birthday an awesome simple experience!
Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to leave us this review! We are so thankful you chose to join us for your daughters birthday. We loved celebrating with you and hope to see you again soon!
Amazing dinner. Great view and service
The food was great. we had an awesome view of Elliot Bay and the city.The waiter was one of better in recent memory, very prompt seating after arrival.
Birthday, they were super nice and had the table decorated and a card signed from the staff. Also got a free desert!
The view on Seattle downtown is priceless!
Delicious food! Went for an anniversary and felt very special from the staff!

Hi Ellie, thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to leave us this review! We are so thankful you chose to join us for your birthday. We loved celebrating with you and hope to see you again soon!
Was a VERY pleasurable dining experience following over a year from refraining restaurants. Your staff accommodated my wife's birthday observation generously,
Thank you so much for choosing to have your wife's birthday celebration with us! We are so glad to hear your service met expectations! We appreciate you leaving this review and hope to see you again soon.
Salty's is everything that you want from a restaurant - wonderful service, a fantastic setting and just the right amount of attention to detail.
Food was delicious and the view just stunning! We'll be back.
First time at Salty’s, and they did not disappoint! The view of Seattle was stunning, the fresh oysters were on point. If you love you some crab and shrimp on your Crab Louie, they piled it high! We talked for literally hours and closed the place down. Waitstaff was attentive (shout-out to our main server, Brian) without micromanaging our experience. Like most restaurants during COVID, Salty’s could use some love. Schedule a visit and enjoy the fine dining at a West Seattle icon.
Service was great! We had Keen as a server. He was attentive and personable. Andy took awesome pictures! It was our last night in town and the food was amazing and so were the drinks! Our waters were consistently refilled A+++, would highly recommend, and would love to come back when we’re in town again!
Saltys at Alki did not disappoint for our Anniversary Dinner Date. We were greeted first by the front host with a Happy Anniversary greeting. Our table was covered with rose petals and a nice card signed by the staff. Camille, our waiter was on point and served us well. The food was amazing and plentiful. The flavors were so good. It’s true, Saltys Clam Chowder is the best and the Alki Sushi Roll, well, let’s just say YUM! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves right down to the scrumptious White Chocolate Mousse, Raspberry Sauce and White Cake that was served to us for our Anniversary. Celebrating 39 years at Saltys was wonderful! We will be back!
The food was amazing and the staff was great. I highly recommend.
