Boundary Bay Brewery is locally owned and run. We do all our own brewing, bottling and distribution. We love keeping business local for lots of reasons, but one of the things we love the most is getting to know the cool businesses in our region that choose to have Boundary Bay beer on tap. Especially the little ones that not everyone knows about! Michael Nichols, our Seattle area sales and delivery guy, wrote this quick little piece about The Maple Leaf Grill…
The Maple Leaf Grill, at 8929 Roosevelt Wy NE in Seattle, is an excellent restaurant with a very cool half-oval bar.
The ML Grill is located in an old 1920’s house on the corner of Roosevelt and 90th – its unique and homey character is further enhanced by the friendly and personable demeanor of its owner and chef, Patrick Paull, and longtime bartender Gwen Tollefson. As of this writing, their beer lineup includes Mac & Jack’s, Hale’s, Bridgeport, Jubelale, and a few others. Their most popular beer, and one handle which is always reliable, is the Boundary Bay IPA. The Maple Leaf Grill also has draft Thomas Kemper Root Beer and all-ages seating outside of the bar area – it is a very appropriate venue for the whole family.
The entire staff is very friendly, and during the late afternoons and early evenings there is a mellow and loyal crowd of regulars. On Wednesdays, the Maple Leaf runs beer specials from 4-close, featuring $2 schooners and $2.50 pints. Tuesday is wine night, with bottle prices ½ off from 4-close. Thursday night well cocktails are just $5, and the ML Grill only serves top shelf liquor. The Maple Grill’s hours are M-F 11:30am-10pm, and Saturdays and Sundays 5-10pm. And from 3-6pm every weekday, you’ll find Happy Hour with $1 off all draft beer and wine by the glass plus 10 different $5 treats! Enjoy deep fried ravioli, grilled eggplant, pulled pork sliders, teriyaki steak & rice, spinach salad, yam fries, a quesadilla, pancetta steamed clams, sweet chili-lime prawns or 1/2 BLT and fries for just $5…all perfect with a BBAY IPA. Cheers!
Great food, served by good people, in a nice place. Eating (and drinking!) at the Maple Leaf Grill feels like one is part of a special group who has discovered a Seattle secret. Cheers! –Michael Nichols
