My husband and I came here for a much needed date night. We made the reservation last minute and the only time available was 8:30. It worked for us but it's good to plan a head a bit if you want choices of eating time....More

I went on my own and grabbed a spot at the bar. Great fast service. Everything was really fresh and well prepared. The filet mignon is easily one of the best in the entire NW!!

The food here is good if you don't starve in the wait. We arrived at 5:50 PM and we're told 1-1/2 hr wait. So we put our name in and ran some errands. Well it was after 8:00 when we were seated, next to a...More

Small little place that packs a big punch! Outstanding Ribeye and cooked how I asked for it, which can be tricky for a med-rare lover. Bartender, Mellissa, was informative and generally awesome. Mellissa makes an incredible Manhattan...btw.

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.
