    We were pleasantly surprise at the onset of our visit to Russell's on Macklind. We were seated on the patio that is very pleasant with shade and fans. We ordered drinks and appetizer which came out and were very good. It was the focaccia bread and ricotta. The waitress took the rest of our order which was salads and three entrees. Next thing you know 1 entree and 1 salad showed up. About 5 minutes later 2 salads arrived. About 5 minutes later another entree and the final entree never showed up. Really no excuse for any of this at a restaurant where an entree is $34 and salads $14. We tried not to let it ruin our evening. The manager offered to take off our drinks, the missed entree and offered a dessert. It really just ruined the evening and the bill still was $150 for a screwed up meal. It was our first time here. Food was good but it wasn't a pleasant dining experience.

    We had an amazing time at Russell’s. The food was amazing, despite the small susbsitutions for some items they were out of late in the day. We had an 8 pm reservation. We ordered the heirloom tomato caprase salad, mussels, and a filet with potatoes and broccolini. We had a slice of tiramisu cake to go. Yum yum yum. Our cocktails were amazing - the bee’s knees and a black buffalo. Clint, our server, helped make the experience. He was attentive and engaging. We will definitely be back! A great way to spend a birthday!

    We enjoyed an early dinner at Russell's. We started with the Cheese Puffs, very good. The entrees are delicious and portions are large. We enjoyed the pork chops served with grits and the roasted chicken with pasta and veggies. Don't forget to save room for dessert.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday brunch at Russell's on Macklind. We ate on the deck where the noise level was fairly quiet, the dining area was shaded and there was a nice breeze. Our server was friendly and attentive. The food was excellent It was a delightful experience.

    I love Russel’s on Macklind for a perfect brunch. I enjoyed my the classic brunch menu and they feature amazing pastries. My breakfast sandwich was incredible and my fiancé ordered the biscuits and gravy which were heavenly. We also had two rounds of the killer bloody mary’s! Addicting.

    Russells is one of my favorite restaurants. I love the outside patio and courtyard. The quiche was excellent, I’ve never had better. The peach Bellini was great. I recommend this restaurant to all my friends and acquaintances.

    First time there. Unique, attractive, eclectic menu. Host and server were friendly, prompt and helpful, always important. For entrees we had the pork chop and pot pie respectively. Pot pie excellent, good flavor, very original. Pork chop oversize and thick, more like a small pork roast. perfectly grilled with good fruit sauce flavor. mashed shallots liked mash potatoes very unique and tasty but smothered the pork garnish a bit. We had the caprese salad with heirlooms which didnt disappoint. They add a whipped ricotta which we liked very much. The touted cheese puffs were a disappointment, sorry. We looked at a few other entrees being served to those nearby. The meatloaf (which I almost ordered) looked very tasty but again the portion was enormous. We had the lemon meringue tart for dessert which was excellent. Small but adequate wine list. i had a very good Rodney Strong cabernet. On the entrance floor there is a large bakery type dessert bar worthy of a look and a take home. Overall a B+ and we will return, anxious to try another dish. if anything the restaurant suffers from oversize portions. One appreciates the generosity of portions but even hearty eaters like us did not need all that food.

    Great food as always. Service lacking in that the server was slow to greet us/return with items requested and then seemed like he didn't want to be bothered even when time to order. We generally always have great service so this was disappointing.

    We met some friends for dinner and enjoyed a whipped ricotta with cherries, walnuts and balsamic. Yum. We moved on to dinner and my wife had a bibb wedge salad and I had the sea bass with brown rice, cabbage and walnuts. We enjoyed drinks too and shared a little dessert. Overall, very good!
