Catering & Events


    Bust out the Aloha for your next big wedding, graduation, family reunion, company party… Whatever your need, Marination is ready to rise to the occasion! We can bring Big Blue to you, we can do big pick-up orders or deliveries, or you can rent out the patio at ma kai!


    Do you deliver?

    Yes, we prefer 48 hours notice and charge $50 for delivery within in Seattle city limits.

    Do you have vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options?

    Yes, available on request.

    How much food do I need?

    We recommend 3-4 items per person for an average size meal.

    The answer is YES!

    Yes! We cater private parties. Yes! We go to special events. And Yes! We have simpler options for feeding your group including pick-up, delivery, and pre-orders. Spreading the aloha is serious business. We’re committed. Whether you are hosting a meeting for 20 or a reception for 150, we can offer you three options:

    Option 1: An Iconic Waterfront Venue in Alki

    Our grandest endeavor, Marination ma kai is available for events! Join us down on Alki beach, where we’ve got a big kitchen, a FULL bar, and the BEST view in Seattle! Not to mention 1500 square feet of patio facing the city skyline in all its glory. We will work with you on open air or fully tented events (it is Seattle after all!) The bar is stocked with an awesome rotating draft selection, anddd Aloha-style cocktails (like the lychee margarita), not to mention a couple choice wine options. It’s a great location for FUN people to celebrate!

    We’ve held receptions, birthday parties, rehearsal dinners, and more–and we can’t wait for YOURS to come next! Get in touch with Melinda to talk logistics, and we’ll see what we can do for you! We’ll even help you throw a Hawaiian luau pig roast!

    Contact us through this site or email [] to learn more about renting ma kai.

    Option 2: Your Own Private Rolling Kitchen


    Not only does she have style and a SAUCY attitude, Big Blue also caters! Imagine all the joy of Aloha parked in your backyard. If you feel like treating your people right (see: friends, family, co-workers, etc.) this is the way to do it! We offer the full truck menu, as well as stripped down versions, like tacos and sliders only, depending on your needs. She just loves to get dressed up for weddings and parties! She books up quick so contact us today.

    Certain restrictions apply (must be truck-accessible, i.e. no ferries unfortunately, we tried that one once…)  

    Your crew did a wonderful job last night! The truck showed up on time, didn’t require any involvement from us (big plus!) and started serving food right when we needed it. As expected, everyone loved the food and it was a great success!  Thank you so much for being a large part of making our wedding a successful one!     Sincerely,   Brian & Rachel Connolly

     Option 3: Aloha…Delivered.

    We also do TONS of delivery and pick-up orders through ma kai and the Station. With a couple days notice, we can help you feed up to 150 people! Trays upon trays of tacos, sliders, and kimchi fried rice, talk about ALOHA on a budget!!  Musubis, mac salad, and other menu items are a possibility too, just shoot an email or a call to Melinda!

     Thank you SO MUCH for a smashing good time! The party was such a hit, and the food was an enormous part of that. People absolutely raved about it. Thanks so much for all your organizing!!  Best regards,   Sarah
