The crab and steak are a dynamic duo. A seat by the window is great people watching or river watching while enjoying a fantastic meal. Wonderful wine list and great service.

We had trout and grouper. Perhaps we should have had the steaks so I can't comment. The Grouper was very good, but not flavorful or spectacular for the price. Cozy restaurant with very pleasant managers and waiters.

We stopped here for dinner on a Saturday evening. We did not have reservations, but it really wasn't busy. We were seated quickly by a table that provided an "inside/outside" feeling by windows opening onto Gore Creek. Russell's is located at the foot of Bridge...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.
