First time there. A friend took us there. Astonishing food and value. We normally eat at Daniels, which we love, but Melrose is literally half or less the cost. I am not sure how they do it but the steak is every bit as good...More

We are always very pleased at Melrose Grill. Prices are reasonable for a steakhouse. Their beef stroganoff is the best. It is creamy and full of chunks of steak. I always upgrade to the Caesar salad. The bread that comes out at the beginning is...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.
