They were out of meatloaf which is what we all wanted. Food was just ok. Noise level was painfully loud.

Service was beyond slow-food less than average and overcooked. They did however compensate but won’t rush back anytime soon. Sorry to do this.

We were seated on the covered porch in the corner between a constantly slamming door and a large trash can. I could smell odors from the trash can at our table. Service was slow.

Amazing gem! Food was amazing. Italian salad is the best. Followed up by the special sea bass was amazing. Our waitress was amazing. Sent our son home with a box of pastries. Can’t wait to go back!

We had the sea bass special and the steak strip special. The bass was cooked just right and the steak was not fatty and very tender. The service from Clint was outstanding and he was very patient with us for my wife’s birthday. Though the menu is limited, all dishes have been amazing as this was not our first visit to the team at Russell’s.

We sat on the patio where the heater moderated the temperature sufficiently. The starters, cheese puffs and brussels sprout hash were exceptionally flavorful. Three of the main courses were very good composed of numerous flavors. The hamburger was well done rather than the medium well ordered. We had a great time and are enjoying the leftovers.

The food was great I went there with my wife and baby. It was my wife’s birthday and she absolutely loved it. We had the cinnamon roll, breakfast burrito, and the special of the day biscuits and gravy.

Russell’s was incredible. I loved the ambience and the outdoor patio. It actually started raining while we were there, but the staff was quick to accommodate us and set us up inside.

The food was outstanding and the service was incredible.

Enjoyed a beautiful day on the patio at Russell’s! The cinnamon roll was a delicious starter for the table to share, and everyone enjoyed their meals including sandwiches and quiche. Sandy was a very attentive and kind server. We will definitely be back!

Our experience at Russell’s was fantastic. Our server, Sandy, was sooo engaging. She made our fabulous dinner even more so.
Each of us ordered one of the specials, and they were all terrific…roasted chicken flatbread, tuna and NY strip.
And the bakery items are delicious!
