Marination’s brick-and-mortar location at the Alki water-taxi dock (“ma kai” means “near the sea” in Hawaiian) has all the island-fusion favorites familiar to fans of the Mobile and the Station (kalbi beef tacos, aloha sliders, kimchi fried rice... it is all really good), as well as fish and chips, a pork katsu sandwich, and more. Also: boozy shave ice and a reportedly awesome beer garden with really good beer!
Mon-Thu 11 am-8 pm, Fri-Sat 9 am-9 pm, Sun 9 am-8 pm
