Great location within Vail for steaks. A lot of bigger groups being served, so nothing seemed to phase the staff. We had a great server named Wes, who was super accommodating with us and had really good suggestions for our meals including the wine.

Russell's is a great old restaurant in Vail. The ambiance and the food are fabulous. It's an iconic location on Bridge St right next to Gore Creek.

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.
