Happening Happy Hours

Select an area for happy hour using the drop down menu below. Seattle neighborhoods are listed first, then other regions of the Puget Sound.


Salty's at Redondo Beach
28201 Redondo Beach Dr S    Redondo Beach    253-946-0636

Happy hours here are lengthy--take advantage! Daily from 2-5:30 p.m., and Sunday through Thursday 8:30 p.m.-close. A couple of beers and a wine are very well priced. Appetizers include lots of seafood along with more typical happy hour fare and are all reduced from normal menu prices.

Beyond Happy Hour: All the Salty's restaurants are known for their consistently good food, but all have a slightly different feel. Salty's at Redondo Beach is much more "beachy" as it's built out over the water and sits along the promenade on the Redondo Beach waterfront. Outdoor deck dining (ODD) is primo here whether you're having lunch or watching the sun set behind the Olympics.

Beyond Happy Hour: The 70s look is still there, but it's fun to visit and watch the cooks from your high-backed counter seat. Menu items aren't wildly original. They're tasty, but you pay a high price. Serving sizes are shrinking--they used to be almost too big, now it doesn't seem like much of a deal.
