The Grill House Coming Together - In Pictures

Five Years & Counting...

The idea for The Grill House came pretty much the same way everything came for us brothers. Arguing over everything we wanted and finally having mom step in and force a compromise. We realized two things in those early meetings - we wanted to do a grill-based concept and we wanted to name it after our mom, Ms. House (a Woodside High history teacher).

Sourcing local is something we both agreed upon immediately. Having grown up just 20 miles south of Redwood Shores, we both understood the importance and the abundance of local, fresh, quality products. And having a passion for both food and drinking, we choose to use quality, local products in both the kitchen and the bar – because it sucks to have to eat a nice meal while drinking a bad beer.

Once we had an idea, we had to find a location. Whether you want to call it luck, chance or an exhaustive search of the entire Bay Area which included being rejected before even viewing a property, having calls not returned and combing through nearly 100 locations, we came across this gem. Well, gem that just needed a little polish.

We signed the lease February 28, 2014 and were under construction that night, doing as much of the work as possible with our own hands and the help of our family. By July 22, 2014, we had finally received approval from the ABC, the health department and the city to open.

Looking back, that first night was difficult, but one we shared with our friends and family who had no room to complain since they were eating for free. By August 7, things were running a little more smoothly and we had our grand opening. What started with phone calls and emails in 2012 finally became a reality for our family. We thank you for being a part.


Over the last five years we have been honored to serve up a number of our specialties, but who's really counting!
