    Food was fantastic and Service from Bauer was excellent great recommendations and amazing amazing service. Entrées were out of this world we had the ribs, filet mignon and pork chop. we also got the cheesy potatoes and macaroni and cheese, which were both excellent side dishes. Desserts were good I wish they would have been slightly better. They weren't bad, but just not up to the caliber of the rest of the meal. Look forward to our next visit. Henry

    We had dinner here on a Monday night and restaurant was full. The food is good, not great, but we had a nice meal and great service. Steak was cooked the way we wanted. Ribs were dry, so probably not the best choice. Overall, it’s a popular place in Vail Village.

    Had high expectations. Service was great; scallop appetizer amazing; filet over salted and dry (cooked medium); Mac n cheese was swimming in oil/butter. Ambiance is older; casual - no problem showing up in sweatpants. Other tables vaping throughout meal (Tabacco - not pot?).

    Our food was delicious, and we enjoy Russells 3 to 4 times a year. Thought it was weird when we got our bill and it was rounded up? Sometimes that happens if you use cash, which I sort of understand, but we used a credit card and our server said all bills are rounded up no matter how you pay. Will still come back, but just thought that was a strange practice.

    Limited choices especially if you’re coming with kids. Steak comes with sides which is nice. Steak was fantastic but Wiener schnitzel a little overcooked Salads are great for appetizers and are very fresh with interesting combinations.
