Surf or turf? Went because of the previous reviews. Dated décor in a good location. Unfortunately, the menu could use some updating too. If you sit by a limited window seat, you might be a little more forgiving but for the prices you pay, you...More

You really expect a steak house to deliver a steak cooked to order, so I was bummed to see my rib-eye (though in a tasty teriyaki sauce), an over done "medium" when the waiter assured that my "medium rare" order would be exactly right. The...More

The staff was curt - from the hostess to the waitress. If their overwhelmed by the volume of guests that cycle through this popular stop than they need additional training to overcome the anxiety they exude. As much as I wanted this recommendation to be...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.
