Love this place! Consistently great food. Portions have reduced but that is ok. The only issue now is that word is out and you need to make reservations weeks in advance. Use OpenTable or plan to wait, a long time. Restaurant across street, Italian, is...More

High expectation for our group of 7, received average experience in food quality, service. I would go again, but it is a bit overrated.

I don't know why we haven't gone here before, but now we'll be going back often. If summer had a taste, it would be the strawberry salsa on the halibut I had last night. OMG, it was fantastic. The Filet Mignon melted in my mouth,...More

Not really a bad restaurant. The steaks we ordered were ok, nothing fabulous. I dont mind paying for good food. I just think its over rated and therefore a little over priced.

My son found this place on the internet---what a great find!! Reservations got confused (my son's fault I'm sure!), but they went out of their way on a VERY busy night to accommodate us. Excellent food and great wine!!

I'm just a customer. Have no way of helping secure a table. Check the website for the reservation number.

Renton’s Finest Foods Since 1901! * Steakhouse voted #1 Western WA in 2010 * Affordable high quality menu *Historic Landmark in Renton The building in which the Melrose Grill resides was established in 1901 and has served as a tavern since the days of the horse and buggy. It also operated as a pool hall, soda shop and card room during Prohibition. Recently restored, Melrose Grill kept its historic roots with the original mirror-backed bar with its rich, dark woods. The walls showcase vintage photos that highlight the transitions this grand building has gone through. With wainscoting on the walls, low-slung lamps and high ceilings the space feels as open as the West was when it was built. The Food and Service at Melrose Grill will amaze and delight your senses. We work hard to provide our customers with the finest foods available, and prepare them in a way that will tame even most particular palate. Voted #1 Steakhouse in Western WA by King 5 & Evening Ma.
