OUR HISTORY

Independence Grill & Bar is the product of a boys dream from the early age of 9 years old. With God’s blessing, this dream came true in December of 1998 when we begin this journey with the Broadway Cafe in Salem Oregon. My daughter and I wanted families to have a place that they felt welcomed and wanted. We were able to build our restaurant from the ground up actually working on the construction site. When we begin to serve we realized the need in our community, and we begin to serve youth in the community, serving homelessness and helping people to transform their lives.

In June of 2014 the whole dream came true we we were able to move to Independence Oregon and open a full service restaurant, The Independence Grill. We chose that name because we wanted this to become this communities restaurant.

Independence Grill is not only a childhood dream but also a life long passion. We are a family restaurant committed to serving our customers and community by providing excellent food at great prices and being an example of service.

The word from

OUR CHEF

When I was 9 years old my mom, a single parent with seven children took us out and I had the best pancakes I've ever had in my life. I decided at 9 years old I want to own my own restaurant so I can eat pancakes anytime I wanted to. I Later realize that I really just enjoyed being served a great meal. That's the same enthusiasm and passion that I have for your meal. We at Independence Grill want to be certain that when you leave our restaurant that your experience has met your every expectation of service and quality in a family dining experience. I get extra joy coming out in the dining room and talking to our customers, having light banter and ensuring that everyone is enjoying their evening. I really want to thank you for letting us serve you.

SAY ABOUT US

 

A great meal and the three people at our table who ordered clam chowder said it was the best in the valley. The meals were amazing, the staff friendly, the live music superb, the decor perfect and the owner greeted patrons (while also personally attending to the kitchen). Looking forward to our next visit for their Valentine's day special.

We used the independence Grill to cater for a training. We choose the taco bar and we're absolutely satisfied. The food was fresh, tasted amazing and came in great quantity. The chef and owner Gregg was very amazing to work with and absolutely kind, he even contacted me later to check in and make sure we were all satisfied. Absolutely recommend for any event. Amazing customer service. We will use them again.

Stopped here on the way to Corvallis. Really cool little restaurant. Food was casual fare, but very high quality. Completely recommend it. Has live music at night. Best onion rings ever, in my book.

The service was great and the food was delicious. The owner/chef came out half-way through our meal to check that everything was made to our liking, something I haven't had happen in a long while. This place is a little gem! We will most definitely be coming back!
