One of the best restaurants in Seattle. Awesome views of the city, great food and friendly stuff. Good price quality. I've been here several times and everything is delicious.

Had a Dungeness crab which was excellent. We had the best table at the waterfront with a nice view on Seattle at the other side of the bay. Excellent place.

We go to Salty's for special occasions - birthdays. The service has always been great and the food for the most part is delicious. There are a few times I've received a pasta dish that just was kind of bland and had too little crab in it. They are expensive so bring your wallet with a lot of cash in... More

The food here is 5 star quality. Excellent customer service and a great view of Seattle. I love the healthy seafood salad that I humbly encourage you to try. The entire menu is full of great food and the Saturday brunch is second to none.

Just recently had brunch at Salty's. Called last minute so was seated in the Cafe area. Great view in the dining hall. Plentiful selection of seafood, Could not miss the oysters. Hot plates are great as well. Overall a great place to spend for a weekend brunch.

Took my parents there for a gala 50th wedding anniversary--this place is way more expensive than we usually eat, so it was a Big Deal. Ugh. The vibe was 'hurry-through', the food was aggressively mediocre, with a clear concentration on quantity over quality, and none of the seafoods was especially nice, or fresh, or delicious. The omelette chef couldn't manage... More

Visited on a Wednesday night with colleagues. This place was very busy, but we were promptly greeted and our table was ready within 10 minutes. The staff could not have been nicer and our waiter was knowledgeable and attended to us flawlessly. The Seattle skyline views across the harbor are spectacular. My starter cesar's salad was crisp and our oysters... More

We came on a Wednesday night off season without a reservation and had to wait only about 5 minutes. We were shown to a wonderful table in the corner with 270 degrees of water view. The waiter was friendly and helpful and over all the food was superior and delicious. I was a bit annoyed. I ordered the bourbon crab... More
