We went to Salty's on Alki Beach to celebrate my birthday and my mother's birthday - the staff was friendly and attentive, and we were seated quickly (we reserved a table a few days in advance through open table).

Salty’s brunch is legendary for a reason. The food is varied, quite delicious and mind-blowingly plentiful.
We come here as a treat every few months and the place never fails to perform.
Whether you go for the steak, crab, flatbread, Thai noodles, omelette, waffles or any one of the other 60+ foods, you’ll eat well.
Only changes I’d like to see: better bathroom facilities, especially baby changing, great variety of drinks. While the food is varied, the drinks on offer are slightly less so. Relatively speaking. But then this is the Willy Wonka of Brunches. The bar is high.

Good selection of food for Sunday brunch although buffet area is too close together. Maybe limit offerings so people can move more freely. A little pricey. They also make sure to let you know you have a time limit to honor reservations. Decor could use an upgrade.

Brother and wife in town. Loved the view, service was wonderful, buffet was a little far away. My wife spilled coffee on me(not your fault of course). Had to peel our own shrimp, no bottomless mimosas.

We took our son for his birthday and requested a table with a water view. They had a card signed by the staff and a balloon at our table. He ordered crab and white chocolate cake for dessert. He was SO excited! We live out of town and so the whole trip was a big birthday gift/surprise. Salty's made his night. Thank you so much for the extra attention to small details and for making a very memorable experience for our family. Now...can you mail-order the white chocolate cake? :)

Aside from occasional dinners and casual dining on the patio in the Summer my husband and I always meet up w/ friends just after Christmas each year at Salty's. Our friends request it. Usually the food is great, the service is good and we get an exceptional table. This time we were seated next to the waiters station which vibrated our table when one of the appliances came on. We were thankfully moved to a new location. Unfortunately, not sure if that was good for our waiter who took a very long time to serve us between each course. He may have been stretched a little thin as he took quite a bit of time to get us served. However, he was very pleasant and knowledgeable and very agreeable when we had to return the bottle of wine we ordered. Overall it was a good dinner, just not as exceptional as it has been in the past.

My friends and I had our annual Sunday brunch at Salty's yesterday for a friend who is impossible to buy for but loves local seafood.
It is so fun to sit and eat and drink with the amazing views of downtown. The brunch buffet is AMAZING! Anything you can imagine and much more. Beautiful ambiance and good attentive service is what keeps us coming back- along with the all you can eat crab. I also love the Bloody Mary bar- they have really fun and delicious garnishes- like chocolate covered bacon or crab claws. What a treat.

I have lived Salty’s on Alki since my first visit thirty one years ago which to my utter surprise and delight was totally complimentary as the gentleman who offered me his card at a church event said it would be.

No visit to the Seattle area nor lifetime here is complete until you’ve dined at Salty’s!
