My husband and I and two other couples had dinner last January. We ate at all of the top restaurants in Vail that week and were not impressed with Russell's. While the food was just okay, the service and atmosphere were lacklustre and our steak...More

From the momment we walked in the door, we felt like family. Without knowing it, we picked a busy night for dinner. When we arrived there were already dozens of people in line who had reservations. We asked Michael, the general manager, who was working...More

This used to (and i emphasize "used to") be one of the top restaurants in Vail; not so anymore!! Meat was overcooked, vegetables cold and poor presentation. Do not go here!!

My husband and I have gone here twice over two vacations and we loved the food - steaks are excellent and so are salads and side dishes. Highly recommend!

This is one of our favorites in Vail. The quality of the food is excellent and the wait staff is top notch. Make reservations early - it books out quickly. The Alaskan King Crab - yes, in Colorado, is the best!

Good dinner with family. Best dishes were the potato sides (scalloped and mashed) and the ribs. Blackened grouper was good, but not great. Service was timely and friendly. Restaurant is very loud when crowded, hard to hear across the table.

Really good steaks. Great service. They even brought a dessert out to help me celebrate my birthday. Gets a little loud over in the bar area, so if you want to hear your date/guests, ask for the back room area. Loved the wildlife pics up...More

Just across the Covered Bridge in Vail Village is Bridge Street's warm, cozy and oldest steak house - Russell's. We have a friendly, relaxing atmosphere with wonderful Creekside dining. Russell's features dry aged Certified Angus beef, along with delightful fish entrees and world-renowned Alaskan King Crab Legs. One side dish that you can't pass up is our scalloped potatoes - baked with onions, bacon and cheese with a golden brown top. A lot of our staff members have been with us for 20 years or more. Come by and see for yourself why the locals and staff love Russell's. We take great pride in serving premier steaks and seafood in the most enjoyable and accommodating restaurant in Vail. Reservations recommended.
