We've gone to Russell's many times before. Not sure why, but it was just olay. The salad didn't have enough dressing. They didn't have olives so I couldn't have a Martini? Disappointed. I'll still go back, they're usually better...

Food was fantastic. Ambience lovely. Wait staff is very attentive. A lovely place to dine. No complaints. We didn’t eat on the patio but the heaters were on and it looked very pleasant.

Able to sit on deck and there was plenty of space between all tables. Staff were very diligent with mask wearing. Heaters were wonderful. And food was fantastic as usual.

It was a lovely experience, but I always enjoy dining with Russell’s. I had the breakfast flatbread and a glass of white wine. I will be back.

We needed a quick get-away for our family during this crazy time. We traveled to STL and ended up booking our Sunday breakfast at Russell's on Macklind. What a perfect way to end our trip. The place was socially distanced, all the workers and customers were following the COVID rules the restaurant put in place and the food was FABULOUS! Even if you think you don't want a cinnamon roll...you DO!

We dine often at Russell’s on Macklind . We always enjoy our meal and the ambiance of Russell’s. I hate winter “local” vegetables like kale and Brussel sprouts. So, it’s not their fault that some of the entrees made me go ,”Ugh!”. The pot roast was good, though.

We were early for our reservation and were told we would be seated next. Four other tables were then seated, leaving outside seating which is not acceptable to me. We waited again, then were seated upstairs. By the time we finally saw a waitress, they were out of two of the items I wanted.

But the biggest question I have is why we had to ask for coffee refills and each time told that we would have to wait for our server, or they would notify our server. Other employees bring food to the table, why can’t other employees refresh a cup of coffee?

Overall very good, but we were seated outside and were not made aware of that during the reservation. The restaurant was offering inside and outside service so would have appreciated knowing they planned to stick us outside.

I was so disappointed . The breakfast biscuits were not fresh or warm . Even if they are day old heat, heat them up a little . French toast kinda hard and tasteless . Way to expensive . I don’t mind paying more but it has to be worth it .

We were seated out on the patio which took me aback, but it appeared to be cozy enough for our 3 yr old if she kept her jacket on. We watched 2-3 families balk when brought outside but I have to tell you, it was by far the best seating. We all finished our meals w/o coats we were so toasty despite two sides being open. It was less crowded and had fresh air flow (comforting considering current times). Our amazing waitress Niki...(forgive me if that is wrong, mom brain is a thing) was attentive, patient with our little, and exceedingly thoughtful. I was sad to lose Russell’s by the Butterfly Garden as it was a closer drive for us, but so very glad to have met the Macklind team. The oat milk Cap was perfect, our toddler’s French toast so delectable I risked her wraith to steal bites, and the scrambled grilled cheese delicious. Thank you for a lovely Saturday Brunch! We will most certainly make the trek again.

We gambled on this place based on the Open Table ratings and loved it. Meatloaf w/Grits was amazing as was the Sea Bass. Beer and wine list has something for everyone and the Fireside Old Fashion was perfect. We will be back with friends soon!

Love Russell’s on Macklind! Cinnamon rolls are not only huge but delicious! We split a cinnamon roll and breakfast sandwich. Plenty of food for 2. They serve Kaldis coffee which is also a favorite. Our waiter was attentive and delightful! Highly recommend.

Great food, everything socially distanced and they were very careful. I have to say the Seabass is a little pricey but very good. Probably would go for one of the other dishes that I’ve had there were all awesome. One of my favorite places!

From the warm welcome at the front door to our wonderful table service, everyone was so kind, attentive and gracious. Thank you to all the staff at Russell’s for a safe and joyful dining experience!
