Please know that our fabulous waterfront views are visible from virtually every seat in our restaurants, not just window seats.

Holiday reservations must be made by telephone — we do not accept online reservations for Valentine's Day, Easter, Mother's & Father's Day, Thanksgiving or New Year's. Please call for parties of 11 or more. On weekends we serve brunch, not lunch at most our locations.

Where did Salty's giant nutcrackers come from? In 2007 the annual downtown Seattle Nutcracker March headed to Salty's for their new home in West Seattle, Des Moines and Portland, Oregon. Beckoned by Gerry Kingen, Salty's owner, the giant nutcrackers saw 2007 as the third and what was to be the final season of the Nutcracker March of life-sized replicas inspired by the Pacific Northwest Nutcracker Ballet. It was a fund-raiser to benefit Northwest Center and it started in downtown Seattle as a public art display. Individually designed by local Northwest artists, these seven-foot tall colorful sculptures used to stand guard in downtown Seattle and now they're at all Salty's from early December into the new year!

"We are thrilled that all the nutcrackers have been purchased,";Tracey Lyman, VP of Community Affairs and People for Northwest Center told us in 2007. "We broke our donation record from previous years' participation in the Nutcracker March."; She added, "We look forward to putting these donations to good use, furthering our mission to promote the growth, development and independence of people with disabilities."
