Celebrated our 32nd anniversary at the Melrose Grill. This was our first time here and were not disappointed. The layout is like an old bar, long, kind of narrow and dark. It was a bit noisy but still everything fit together really nice. We let...More

It was a very disappointing evening. Our waitperson was pleasant although a bit slow. Two of three meals were good but they screwed up the same order twice. I ordered a New York steak (large cut) and asked for it to be medium rare. When...More

We opted to share the Melrose cut (15oz) filet. It was very good. The salad and veggies were good but nothing exciting. The Parmesan potatoes were a little too spicy for me but my hubby liked them.

When people come to Seattle, they visit a steakhouse like Metropolitan Grill. Certainly, Met offers great atmosphere, along with great steaks and service. Melrose Grill, on the other hand, is a hole in the wall kind of place. But its steaks are one of the...More

I absolutely love Melrose Grill! It's my go-to for a delicious steak. I don't know how many restaurants I've gone to and left in complete disappointment from an overcooked steak, or one that is so rare that it's still mooing. My favorite is the Delmonico....More

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.
