The Lobster Shop

The Lobster Shop in Tacoma is taking its already world-class weekend brunch to a whole new level for the holidays. Its decadent, live-action station features mouthwatering prime rib and a lip-smacking bourbon-glaze ham. These pieces of meat will pair up nicely with all your breakfast favorites like made-to-order omelets, bacon, sausage and hash browns. Seafood lovers will rejoice because this establishment cannot be called the Lobster Shop without a plethora of seafood: During brunch, diners can feast on smoked salmon, house-cured salmon lox, homemade lobster bisque and New England-style clam chowder. As if that isn't enough, you know you will be unable to pass up the chilled crab legs. After you've piled your plate high, don't forget to save room for all the amazing sweet desserts that will be available. As the Lobster Shop's manager Justin Doll said, it truly is a fantastic feast that cannot be missed.

Salty's at Redondo Beach

Coming down to Salty's at Redondo Beach to have brunch with Santa is a Pacific Northwest family tradition.

Of course, they also come to indulge in Salty's well-known brunch offerings. Enjoy deliciously fresh seafood such as peel-and-eat shrimp, oysters on the half shell and Dungeness crab. Pair the seafood with generous portions of prime rib and bone-in ham. Guests will also be able to feast on omelets and crepes as well as bacon, sausage and waffles.  Don't forget to add the chicken to make a hearty platter of chicken and waffles.
