    Four of us dined and had a very good meal to include Caesar salad, wedge salad, crab cake, pasta, burger…a good sampling of the offerings. Our waiter was especially thoughtful to urge us to get our order in before a large party so we would not have to wait too long. Great comfort food. The restaurant tends to be loud if full and the outdoor patio was closed so it was a busy night.desserts are amazing, all of them!

    The five of us enjoyed being together for a birthday. Our waiter was fabulous. Food was really good but too much. The noise was off the charts. The time with family was priceless. I would definitely go again but only if we could be outside. As much as we all adored the food, our inability to hear each other really hindered our enjoyment.

    If you are looking for a place to have a nice conversation and relax, this is not it. Very busy and loud over brunch. It's cute and cozy but we were seated literally near the front door, behind the host. Constant commotion by our table and people passing by. Totally distracting and annoying. Service was lovely and food very good.

    What a great place for brunch! The service was great! The food was amazing and the drinks were good as well. I had the grilled cheese breakfast sandwich and my husband had the Lola Jean sandwich. You can get a 1/2 order of the French toast and I highly recommend it! Everyone that worked there was really nice. Our waitress recommended that we come back for dinner. We will be back! 5 stars for sure!

    Russell’s is one of our favorite spots to take people visiting from out of town or to celebrate something special. We started with the flatbread with bacon, goat cheese and onions. My husband had the burger and fries and said it was great. My lobster pot pie was very rich. The atmosphere there is lovely and they sat us upstairs by the window where it was cozy.

    We were really looking forward to our first time at Russell’s, having read good reviews on their website. It started out nice w/ drinks at the bar & an appetizer while waiting on our table. The baked ricotta appetizer & cocktails were very good. We looked over the menu at the bar & decided what we were going to order. Unfortunately, after we were seated at our table the waiter came over to greet us and then preceded to tell us that 5 of the 8 entrees listed were no longer available(needless to say our picks were not available). We were very surprised to hear this since it was only a little after 7:00 on a Saturday night. How does a restaurant run out of more than half of their menu on a Saturday night? We were so disappointed and also the 3 entrees that were still available did not sound appealing to us. So, we decided to leave and go somewhere else. It was not the date night that we were planning on…so very disappointed.

    Clint, our server, was amazing. As always, Russell’s was a great experience. Food was delicious, service was fabulous. This is one of our favorite spots, we never feel rushed like other places that are just trying to turn tables. Love it here. Filet was perfectly cooked and my husband loved the lobster pot pie. Can’t wait to come back.

    We had such a great experience at Russell’s on Macklind for their Valentines Day dinner! We were lucky to get a reservation since they hook up fast, for 8pm and we’re so glad we went! The ambience made for an ideal dinner date with the lights down low, yet enough candles and other lighting to still be able to see the menu. We got the crab cake, which was phenomenally tasting, as well as the Braised Short Rib that fell apart so smoothly, and the Lobster Pot Pie that I can’t wait to order again! Thanks for making this an amazing dinner date

    Food is always excellent at RonM. Service is almost always just as good. Their wine selection is OK, not great, so you may want to take a bottle and pay the corking fee. Tables are pretty close together so if it is crowded (most of the time) it will be a bit loud for a more intimate dinner with your honey. If the weather is good definitely get a table outside! Deserts are some of the best in town!

    We had been for brunch and lunch but never for dinner - we sat upstairs for dinner. It was quiet and the most enjoyable meal I'd had out in along time. Not too busy so we could hear each other talking. The food was amazing. The waiter comped a dessert of carrot cake - it was tasty but definitely overcooked, maybe that's why he offered it.

    My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our brunch this past Sunday. The biscuits were perfect as always. I had the hash special, and my friends both ordered the crab cake sandwich special. We were all more than happy with our meals. Maggie, Bill, & Kevin were all wonderful and gave top notch service. Per usual, Faron was actively helping his team and engaging with guests. Russell’s is truly a gem of a restaurant and bakery. I think it’s important to note that no one encouraged me to write this review. My comments are 100% authentic based on my experience(s).

    My husband calls Russell's a "gem" and it is. The food is very good. The wine list is very limited but includes carefully chosen very good affordable wines. My husband had a cold brew coffee martini that was tasty. Different than an espresso martini and not sweet. The servings are generous, and we always end up bringing leftovers home. For instance, the Caesar salad should be shared. We always forget. The only thing we would change is that the entrees came before we finished our soup and salad, but by then we were ready to take them home. They are very accommodating with this. The staff is very pleasant.

    The food is always outstanding supported by a menu with lots of choices. And the dessert choices are a great ending to the meal. In the summer and warmer fall temperatures, it is always wonderful to sit outside.

    We had a great time here, it was a really sweet atmosphere, romantic, our server was great and had good recommendations. Our cocktails were very yummy! The food was good… I can’t say anything crazy (good or bad) about it but I would like to go back to try other things! Also the cake was so hard to choose from because all the flavors sounded so yummy, but the Port wine chocolate cake we got was very delicious. Can’t wait to go back and try again!
