Great experience! It was my grandmothers 77th birthday! Excellent service and even better food!
So delicious. One of the best bbq spots in denver
Our waiter never came back after the water order. We waited 15-20 minutes in an empty restaurant. We didn’t get the opportunity to eat anything because we left without anyone even noticing.
Enjoyed restaurant week at Russell's. The food was very good.
We went for restaurant week, but we didn’t get the deal because no where it said it start at 5pm. The food was really bland. It only tasted good with the bbq sauce.
Brisket was dry and Mac and cheese portion was really small
Worst BBQ I've tasted. Overpriced, run of the mill food. Rude staff.
Our service was subpar, we let two staff members know how the food was dissatisfying, but they couldn't care less. The steak was too salty, and they made it clear that wasn't a priority to them. No need to return here.
Food was average; lacked seasoning. Side portions were small and bland. Atmosphere and service was good.
Excellent and interesting cocktails, meats that are done by people who care. Neither boiled/baked to death, nor stickily sauced. Meaty and perfectly done with three excellent sauces (regular, hot, mustard-based) on the table. Great digs, too. A real pleasure.
enjoyed the meal that I had, but was disappointing that the published menu for restaurant week was extremely different than what was presented at the restaurant. I would have selected another option had I known what the restaurant week menu actually was. I ended up ordering off of the regular menu, which I could do any time.
We really liked the vibe of the restaurant and wanted it to be awesome. There were five of us and we had a 5:30 reservation . I ordered a fillet but they said they were out. Pretty disappointing for a place that serves beef. My daughter ordered Mac and cheese and it was like warm. My son in law ordered salmon and they said it was over cooked so they prepared him a new one. It was good but they rest of the food on his plate was cold. Like I said...we loved the ambiance and really wanted to like this place. We would probably give it another chance but we were disappointed with our first visit
My husband and I decided to come here for restaurant week, I specifically chose this restaurant because on the menu for restaurant week they had Bone Marrow, however when we got our menu they had severely cut the restaurant week menu, and then the one item we went in for wasn't even on their full menu anymore. We decided to stay, however our whole meal severely lacked flavor from the ribs to the sides. We left there incredibly disappointed and hungry.
This was the perfect double date spot. It wasn’t too loud, we got seated within minutes of our reservation, and the food was great.
Hands down the best food around. Great staff, great drinks. Love this place for friends and family.
Bring back loaded chips!!!!!
Great setting, location, service, presentation and drinks. Food was a great but not the real authentic BBQ spot I was looking for and portions were smaller than expected. Overall great date spot and healthy choice.
Always great service and food!!!
Restaurant never opened. Open Table was taking reservations, their phones said they were open, website said they were open. But they were not open. Made reservations for wife’s birthday dinner. We weren’t the only one outside waiting, until we realized they were not going to open. At least a sign outside would of been helpful, but not very professional.
Favorite place in Larimer Square! My husband and I recently split a Combo Plate with Crispy Brussels Sprouts, the Field Greens salad, and the jalapeño cornbread and were very satisfied. All three house made BBQ sauces are delicious. The booth we sat in was spacious and comfortable.
Russell's has become our new favorite place to dine when we attend a performance at DCPA. Food is absolutely excellent and the wait staff is friendly, helpful and with just the right amount of attentiveness. I highly recommend Russell's Smokehouse!
Amazing food, great cocktails and wonderful service. Cant wait to go back!
Meal was great and staff was excellent. We were there to celebrate a birthday and everyone enjoyed it.
Food was awesome, service was great. Definitely be sure to get the brisket!
The meals were delicious, but too much.
The brisket was the best but honestly it was all just pretty average. The ribs were dry, chicken insignificant. The Mac and cheese needs work. Brussels sprouts are great. Fried pickles are great.
This has to be some of the best bbq I’ve ever had.
The beef ribs were dry and as much fat as meat. The smokey mac and cheese had great flavor, but was very watery. The peacan pie tasted dry and old.
The colar greens and cheese grits were very good!
Will return. Good food. Good service. Will return for business lunches or personal reasons.
All the dishes and drinks were super flavorful. Great bartender. Can't wait to go back to the speak easy.
Ribs lacked flavor. Staff was very friendly.
Great food. The meats were all great, we had the pork, chicken and brisket. BBQ sauce wonderful!
Ribs were tough sent back and gratuity was added into bill because we had 2 toddlers that didn’t eat. We had dirty plates on our table for awhile but ribs were comp. the rest of the food was delicious though just not a great experience. Server was ok.
We had a fantastic dinner at Russell’s Smokehouse. Can’t wait to come back again! The service was great and the food was amazing and filled with flavor.
Food was really salty today.
Great,as always. Sirloin tips were especially yummy!
The food, service and value was excellent, my spot for burnt ends from now on!!!!!
The food is decent but over priced, and the atmosphere is not what you see on the website.
My friend and I went there for the first time last Saturday for lunch and we will be returning every time we go to Denver. Charming atmosphere, very friendly and helpful waitperson and my meal was the best I’ve ever had! An all-around wonderful experience and the perfect start to an afternoon outing to the ballet at DCPA!
Good food, good service, good value. Kind of lonely that night, so not much of a vibe, but the important part of the experience was positive.
