Location and contact

The Grille is in a historic building originally built in 1923 as the Rialto Theater. It was the longest running single-screen theater in the United States until December 1998, when it was lost to fire. Reopened in December of 2005 as The Tavern Grille, guests will see the charred concrete walls that frame the dining room today. The building next door, built in 1925 as a grocery store, was converted into the upscale Tavern Hotel in 2011 and guests enjoy welcome cocktails at the Tavern Grille Bar. Upstairs from the Grille is a luxury penthouse that is part of the Tavern Hotel experience.

We were a part of the Sip & Stay at the Tavern Hotel, and the wait staff, especially Taylor were great. The food has always been great.
