Hawaiian Restaurant
“After the fun 10 minute Water Taxi from Pier 50 Downtown to West Seattle...Marination is right next to the pier. Casual place serving Hawaiian/Korean street food while sitting on picnic tables looking directly back at the Seattle skyline. If you are short on time for a ferry to Bainbridge, this is a great alternative.”

Italian Restaurant
“Sweet patio overlooking Pike Place Market and water. Entrance is on Post Alley with only it's signature door giving a clue what is inside. Entertainment comes with the Italian fare many nights. A bit of dinner and cabaret! Seattle classic, since I have been in town for 35 years.”

Speakeasy
