Renton’s Finest Foods Since 1901! * Steakhouse voted #1 Western WA 2010 & 2014 * 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.

Great food at a great price

Eaten here many times and by far best food and best value for the money. hands down beats all the big name steak houses in Seattle or Bellevue. NY was tender and cooked to perfection and dont miss out on the parmeson potatoes! All deserts are great too.

Staff was great and our server, I believe her name was Lisa, was very knowledgeable with specials, wine selection and history of Melrose.

Melrose has the best steak in the northwest - it’s a destination for when you want a flawless filet

We had a great time. We ordered two porterhouse steaks. It was our first time there. It was smaller than we thought it would be. We were seated between two big groups. But overall the experience was great. The service was knowledgeable and prompt. We had a great time

It was our Anniversary and had a good time, However, our server was not attentive and people around us got their food before us. We had ordered before them. My husband's meat was a little tuff. Thank you

It was delicious! I had grilled duck breast - something I had never had. I decided to order that based on our server’s recommendation. And it was exactly what she said it would be. She was knowledgeable about what she was serving. We had excellent service from her as well as all the other staff. The only small drawback - it is very small & crowded so getting a table is difficult (make a reservation!) & walking around must be done carefully. But our table was comfortable for the 2 of us (some 2-tops we’ve been at are really too small for 2 people ordering several items. But this wasn’t.)

The food is incredible! The menu is very small but definitely worth it. Plan on spending at least $150 for 2. We were so full that we could not even get desert.

The staff was kind but they seems to be bumping into each other all the time and they were almost running around us. It was a busy night with all the tables full.

They don't open until 4pm for dinner only.

We went to Melrose for a late Valentine dinner. Our server was awesome...kind, positive, attentive and very pleasant. Our steaks were amazing and the accompaniments were okay. I prefer my veggies just a little more tender and my skewered prawns were actually charred on one side. But all in all it was a great meal.

Great food, great service, alright price. I've ate at steakhouses that are comparable for less.

I made reservations, but ended up waiting 15 mins to be seated. Was not happy with the wait.

Went to the Melrose for our anniversary and enjoyed one of the best steaks I've ever had! My wife had the salmon and she said it was perfect. I would highly recommend the Melrose but make a reservation as it is small and seating is limited.
