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).

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.

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.

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!

Saltys is AMAZING!! I don’t care if you are going for an everyday experience, date night or a special occasion, you will be treated to such a special experience. Our waiter, Brody, was so attentive and took care or us. And the bartender, Scott, serves up the best drinks in West Seattle!

My experience at Salty's is one to remember. Our server, John was very informative and attentive. The Alki Roll was delicious and fresh. In my personal opinion the appetizers are way tastier than any entree my table ordered. The entree's left a lot to be desired which is unfortunate. I'll definitely return for appetizers and drinks!

We celebrated an 18th birthday at Salty's. The weather was nice so we opted for an outside table, and it was great!! They have 3 levels for the outside: main restaurant deck, 2nd level tent deck (controlled environment), and lower (ground) level tent (controlled environment). We were seated lower level right next to the water with beautiful view of the Seattle skyline. Great casual weekday dinner experience with outstanding ambiance, service, and food.

Salty’s never fails to deliver. John was our server and I can’t say enough good things about him. He was helpful without being intrusive. The food was outstanding. I had the lobster and prawn bucatini! Wow, just wow! My friends had the seafood mixed grill and they could not stop raving about it. The fourth person in party had the New York strip steak. Cooked to perfection. Good friends, excellent service and food and fantastic scenery! What more could a girl ask for.
