With views of Elliott Bay and the Seattle city skyline, this is a fantastic place to come for weekend brunch, happy hour, or dinner. Northwest seafood and cuisine is Salty’s specialty. The large outdoor deck has umbrella tables, just in case there’s too much sun for you. If you come on a weekend, you might even see a wedding. The deck is a popular spot for summertime nuptials.
