Salty's on Alki Beach (Seattle Restaurant)

Wow! I wish I had been there. I came in for the Copper River Salmon and was blown away by the food and service. Salty's Rocks!!!John Thoren 6/2013

We celebrate with your White Chocolate Mousse Cake. When my twin daughters were in Junior High and High School we would go to dinner quarterly to celebrate good grades. After one of these dinners at Salty’s at Redondo we enjoyed dessert and one of the choices was your White Chocolate Mousse Cake. Well it was an instant family favorite and we have had it several times. When they left for their freshman year at WSU I wanted to do something special for their first year away during their birthday. I got on the phone and ordered the WCMC, then called an airline that flew to Pullman (WSU) to see if they would fly it there. With cake in hand, I delivered it to the airport and they flew it to Pullman. I called my daughters and told them a surprise was waiting. They were pretty happy! Last Thursday was my birthday and we went to Salty’s on Alki. We ran into Nems, who now does PR with Salty’s, and when she heard it was my birthday she surprised me with — wait for it — a White Chocolate Mousse Cake! After dessert I went to thank her and told her the above story. I guess the moral to this story is celebrate life’s great moments with Salty’s White Chocolate Mousse Cake, or one’s kindness is always repaid. —Linda Papke 4/2013

Salty's at Redondo Beach (South Seattle)

My Family and I had Thanksgiving dinner at the Saltys - Redondo Location this year! This certainly covers our opinion " Excellent Delivery in all areas"!!! The Staff at this location did a great job, The Food was as expected... excellent! The Thanksgiving dinner has become our family tradition now, for the 4th year in a row! We enjoy the day out of the kitchen, and being spoiled by the staff at Salty's! Also nice to come home to a clean house. We do miss the leftovers! Maybe next year you can entertain —doggie bags, to go! wink! Keep up the good work! we will return! Thanks!
—Tim G. 12/8/09

Hi, we are loyal customers of Salty's at Redondo Beach. We definitely think the brunch is the best ever! We think the view is beautiful and the waterfront dining is wonderful! The seafood at the brunch is delicious. The fresh crab and fresh oysters on the half shell are our favorites, along with the seafood chowder with sherry. The wait staff is always well trained, courteous, helpful and prompt.

I confess I am not into anything "blackened" and prefer fish cooked simply, broiled, grilled or baked, with delicious sauces that can be served "on the side." I am also allergic to "soy", so I avoid all dishes cooked with soy sauce. I appreciate the complete list of the ingredients on the menu, so that customers can avoid foods that give them allergic reactions. I also am on a salt restricted diet, so being able to request food cooked with low salt really helps me.

We don't get to Alki, as we live in Puyallup and the traffic is awful getting into Seattle, so we just opt for Salty's at Redondo. We always take our visiting relatives there. Everyone loves it! Thanks!


—Karen R. 10/09
Salty's at Redondo is our favorite restaurant. We always take friends there for a special treat. The service, friendliness and especially the food is great. Keep up the good work!
—Dolores and Bill R. 10/09
On a recent trip to Seattle, my friend, my daughter and I stopped at Salty's (at Redondo) for dinner. (I'd been there before and had been delighted with the food and friendly service.) However, when we checked the menu we saw that there was very little that my daughter (a vegetarian) would be able to eat. We talked to the hostess and she assured us that my daughter's needs would be accommodated. She then took us to the table and spoke to the server. The server (Hannah) assured us as well, that they would be able to make something special for her. A few moments later, the Operations Manager came to our table to discuss with my daughter the type of meal she had in mind and how best to accommodate her needs. Everyone was so kind and helpful and they treated us like visiting dignitaries! The food was delicious and the view, spectacular. But we will never forget the way the restaurant staff went out of their way to ensure we had a wonderful dining experience. I will be posting this as a review on Trip Advisor and Yelp. Thank you all
—Shelly F., Santa Monica, CA 7/09
I am a hairstylist in the Federal Way and Auburn area and I attended the Dinner and a concert on May 27 2009. It was so much fun and I really hope that there will be future events like this one. I worked the next day and shared our experience with my customers. They all expressed that it would be something that they would be very interested in doing also. We enjoyed our drivers and having the exclusive entrance into the concert was awesome. If you choose to have more of these events you can count on us being a part of the experience.

"As usual, your team is/was incredible; personable, welcoming and genuine in making the Salty's atmosphere far superior in customer care. Your team portrays one of my strongest beliefs in business … Any company can offer customer service; whether the team "cares" to give the service is what sets the company apart from their competition. I can find customer service at any place of business. But when that team member "cares" that I am there, it is what will bring me back each and every time ... and this is exactly how I feel every time I come to Salty's ... your team cares!"
—Rae Hanneman, Sales Manager, Portland North Harbour

"The upper level of the restaurant worked very well for our group of 150 people. With the scenic view of the Columbia River, the entertainment of the piano player and the opportunity to have a sit down dinner, your facility was able to offer our group a relaxing and enjoyable evening.
—Annette M. Meyer, Conference Coordinator, American Rental Association
"We were all delighted with the accommodations and especially noted the lovely decorations you placed in the Wine Room. It certainly was the perfect atmosphere for our event!

—Shannon Williams, Administrative Assistant, Kinder Morgan Bulk Terminals, Inc.
