My fiance and I are looking for comfy, low-key, but delicious place for a post-wedding brunch in Seattle. We have about 40 Southerners coming into town we'd like to entertain.
Any advice is appreciated.
I think the Boat Street Cafe would be a lovely setting for the occassion and the food is yummy.
Salty's - for the view to impress, but not the food
Steel Head diner - Very NW and causual, stroll around the market afterwards

Ivar's Salmon House has a good Sunday brunch and a wide variety of good. Salmon, mussels, clams, oysters, crab, cod, prime rib, ham, lamb and some chicken dish as well last time I was there... plus nice salads, omelette station, crepes, eggs bene, etc. and some creme bruelee. They have banquet rooms available.

I think "awful" is probably a bit much for Ivar's. It's not the best seafood in the city, but I'd say it's pretty good for relatively affordable seafood. (I prefer it to Chinook's or Duke's)
The Salmon House in particular is a cut above the other Ivar's spots, and I'm totally good with taking out of town guests there, although partly for the view and the unique long house atmosphere.
We had ours at Anthony's on Shilshole and it was quite nice. I won't tell you how exhausted I was after the wedding but everyone who was there had a good time.
well depending on the day of the week of the wedding and your budget, the sunday brunch at
6/7 restaurant in the Edgewater hotel is excellent. the view is very nice also, especially on a sunny day.
I would consider booking the Magnolia Room at Palisades. I threw a 50th birthday party there last fall and it was wonderful The view is spectacular, the food was outstanding, and the service was absolutely perfect. Their events manager was so helpful in the planning and the wait staff the night of the event was charming. This might not meet your definition of "low-key" but I can attest that it is a great place to entertain Southerners. Check it out at"
