Melrose Grill was so good that I can't look at another steak house for awhile. One of, if not the best steaks I've ever had. We were in Seattle for vacation and some friends took us. My, how our love for them has grown! Make...More

We love Melrose! I think they have the best filet mignon. Melt in your mouth yumminess! Wait staff have always been attentive. It was the first visit for my friend and she loved it! She and her family have been numerous times since.

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.
