We knew they opened at 5pm so we got there early, additionally we called ahead. We still had to wait a few minutes because other people did the same thing. It was worth the wait. Best food I've had in a long time.

Small place so make reservations. You wont be disappointed. Atmosphere is very inviting and the service is good. They are always crowed so that tells you something.

Always the best steak house around. Our family and friends go to restaurant. Every dish from appetizer to dessert is delicious. Steak, lobster, specialty dishes. You can't go wrong with dinner at the Melrose.

This place has the most awesome steaks and the portions are huge. Salad, veggies, everything is good. I would have given it 5 stars but they don't take reservations for two and it tends to get noisy. The wait staff is great too !

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.
