Best Brunch: Salty’s

The people have spoken.

The all-you-can-eat brunch at Salty’s on Alki may be a bit over the top, but nowhere else in Seattle is quite like it. The buffet centers on what Salty’s does best: fresh seafood. Every weekend, the chefs serve heaping platters of Dungeness crab legs, Puget Sound steamers, salt-crusted salmon, and oysters on the half shell, plus all the usual brunch favorites. There’s even a “Make Your Own” Bloody Mary bar. It’s not a meal to seek out every weekend, but it’s a great spot for a special occasion. 1936 Harbor Ave. S.W., 937-1600
