The restaurant is in the daylight basement of a two floor building that serves as the restaurant establishment for the Elliott Bay Marina, and the restaurants are open to the public.

The restaurant on the "ground level" floor whose entrance faces the parking lot is a very expensive looking place with valet parking and an entrance that just simply screams "you must have money to eat here".

Maggie Bluffs (a play on the old community name of Magnolia Bluffs) is downstairs, and though it is basically in the basement, it is a daylight basement that overlooks downtown Seattle and the Elliott Bay Marina. Everything about Maggie Bluffs says "this just just a plain old restaurant where anyone is welcome" and the prices appear a lot better than what you will probably find upstairs (though I certainly didn't both checking!)

Favorite Dish: Swiss mushroom burger with soup or salad for $12 was a pretty good meal. The stawberry lemonaide was $4, but there is a free refill provided.

Currently, happy hour is available 7 days a week, and this means 1/2 price on appetizers and $4 beer and wine.

Address: 2601 West Marina Place, Seattle, WA 98199

Directions: Elliott Avenue to Magnolia Bridge. Follow signs to Elliott Bay Marina. Left at bottom of ramp, keep heading towards water. At restaurant, head around back (water side) and downstairs. Nearest transit: bus route 33 & 24 stops on Magnolia Bridge itself.
