Salty's Northwest Seafood Festivals

Salty's Seafood Festivals were created to feature 2014 Northwest seafood at the peak of harvest. When seafood is in season, it not only tastes best, but also can be purchased at a more favorable price — we pass the savings along to you, our guests. We like to think of Salty's as America's Great Escape™ where you can escape and enjoy the bounty of the Northwest at its freshest and finest. Stay tuned on what we're offering by visiting Salty's News. Here's our Seafood Festivals special featured dishes and events:
