about us

Central Grille is a bright star and contemporary sparkle in the City of Glendale, and the newest addition to the group of restaurants operated by David Yost & Randy Hoffman. These include Canoe House and SHAKERS in South Pasadena, The Diner on Main in Alhambra and Central Park in Pasadena.

At the corner of Burchett and Central Avenue, Central Grille is a completely new renovation with vibrant interior & exterior designs and an easy-to- get-to location with ample free parking. The new design includes a full-bar offering a great selection of craft beers and handcrafted cocktails. This location was formerly SHAKERS restaurant (also known by many as the Salt Shaker) the Sister store to the South Pasadena location for 42 successful years. The South Pasadena Shakers is still in operation with a strong following and proudly serves the same breakfast, lunch and dinner menu, including their famous carrot cake and zucchini bread and, of course, where breakfast served all-day.

Central Grille offers a new and exciting menu, created in collaboration with Chef Carlos Velasquez, showcasing many inspiring and healthy selections. The atmosphere is charming and fun, with an energetic-styled bar area, where dining is encouraged and the adjacent communal tables and surrounding comfortable booths are popular. Great effort has been taken to preserve a fun and casual environment with just the right amount of satellite TV’s available. Central Grille offers two specifically designed rooms to accommodate private parties. We encourage you to inquire with our Banquet Manager for more details and to book your reservation.
