We enjoyed the dinner for two menu which was included in our hotel package. Everything we had was fabulous and the service was amazing. The owner was there to welcome us to the restaurant and to ensure we were happy with our meal when we left. We would highly recommend dinner at Russell's or an overnight getaway at Salvatore's Grand... More

Many restaurants offer a great filet, but Russell's offers great service and an incredible atmosphere that you won't find just anywhere. This is a great place for any special occasion. The steak alla Russell is outstanding.

Had reservations at 5, arrived on time, and was seated right away. Mr. Salvatore was at the host station and recommended our table number. Made the reservation on open table...Great site! Everything was great...The food, service, decor, etc. It is a pricey place. My friends steak was undercooked, but they were on it right away and had it back in... More

I went here for my Birthday last year and it was outstanding. You get the best service in the area along with some of the best food you will have. This is a fine dining place so if you are not comfortable with paying a good amount, this isn't the place for you. We are going to do the Dinner... More

Bought the overnight package for my husbands birthday. Dinner was delicious, service was okay. Tables around us were cleared and crumbs removed except for our table. Not sure why we were neglected. Room was lovely and breakfast was okay. Unfortunately there was only one type of fruit, but coffee was delicious and breakfast staff was friendly.

I went to Russells for my birthday dinner. The food was delicious, no doubt, but what surprised and dismayed me was the incidentals. We were charged for every soft drink refill, smaller diners don't even do that. Also we brought our own cake, which we were told that we could, but we were charged to have it served....really??? So I... More

The 3 cheese onion soup was the best onion soup I have ever had. Garlic parmesan smashed potatoes were very tasty. And the filet mignon ala Russell was cooked perfectly for medium as it was ordered - and tasted delicious, with plenty of mushrooms. Our server, Allen A, was professional yet casual. Service was excellent. Watching the entire dining staff... More
