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.

Never disappointed in Melrose. The steaks are delicious, the drinks are well made, and the service is always excellent. Make a reservation or else you'll most likely be waiting. Even with a wait, it's worth it!

We tried the Delmonico and bison ribeye, I must say my delmonico was cooked to my perfection. I also ordered their pecan creme brulee and it was good too. This is worth the drive from Spanaway:) will definitely go more often with friends next to time. I tried their cranberry margarita and it too was delicious.

My girlfriend and I came to celebrate a job change. The steaks were every bit as good as more expensive steak houses. Impressive bourbon list, they had Pappy Van Winkle 20 year, which was a nice surprise. Nice wait staff, quick service, nice restaurant but not over the top. Retains it's old charm. Definitely worth the time to dine here. Reservations can be tough to come by, keep in mind.

We had reservations at 9:15pm and were seated promptly. Our server Vanessa was very pleasant and attentive. Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. The Balsamic vinaigrette was amazing on our salad. The steaks, Rib Eye and Delmonico were the best we had ever eaten! Even the simply grilled chicken was delicious! It was our first visit and definitely won’t be our last!

I like this restaurant but I wish that they would vary their menu. I have had everything there that appeals to me and they haven't changed the menu in years- its getting really boring. What they have is good but I would enjoy it more if they had some specials that weren't the specials they have put out for at least the last 8 years.
