A friend told us about his restaurant .... he had worked there many years ago and wanted us to try. While waiting for our dinner, the great smell of garlic filled the room and I couldn't wait until our meal came. Over all, our meal...More

My wife and I ate dinner on 7/25 with a great table by the Gore Creek. The veal and steak were very mediocre and high priced. We both got a small wedge of funny tasting potatoes and an even smaller amount of "vegetables." With tip...More

We have been going to Russell's for over 25 years. The view on the river side is fantastic, as is the view from the tables on the covered bridge street side. Food and cocktails are always excellent. They do struggle a bit trying get a...More

You can have a very nice steak dinner at Russell’s. The NY Strip, Steak Diane, and Center Cut Filet are excellent. So are the escargots and the tuna sashimi.

We have had dinner at Russell’s restaurant in Vail every year. The quality has not changed at all. The steaks and scalloped potatoes are superb, and the service is good. I highly suggest reservations if you were going out a popular time.

Nice enough food but you cannot hear yourself think because it’s so noisy from other diners. Overall I think the place is over-rated.

My non-foodie husband insists that we dine at Russell's every year. I don't care for steakhouses and I don't like to go to many repeat restaurants. But I concede on this point every year without complaint. You will always get the same dependable steakhouse menu,...More

We are temporarily closed until November 15th! 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.
