Our Story

Originally built in 1973, Doofers was named after the first owner Walt Grif-Inn. Gus Routos purchased Doofers Tavern in 1982. After 11 years of being an accountant, Gus decided to try his hand at owning a bar. The Routos family had been in the restaurant business for years and had plenty of advice and experience to lend as Doofer's was established.

In 1982 Doofers was a simple tavern with no windows, 2 pool tables and a small kitchen - much different then the spacious bar and grill it is today.

a remodel that builds community 

In 2000 Gus decided to move and remodel the business to an all ages sports bar and grill. Creating a family-friendly environment was Gus' vision and the remodel created the neighborhood grill that the community knows and loves today.

As long time residents of the Renton community, Gus always gives back through local sponsorships of youth sports teams and regular donations to local schools, where both of his boys attended.
