We have been going to Russell Williams for three decades. Typically we go for breakfast. Food is consistently good, the service is great. As previous folks have written the place is dated but I would agree that it creates ambiance... old school diner. Seems Always busy especially on weekends one can expect a wait. But hey, that's part of the... More

The place serves great breakfast. We regularly go there and have the best meal of the day! I had the western omelet and it was cooked to perfection. Coffee could use a little help but that is a personal opinion.

Three of us went here for lunch for the first time. This restaurant is a throw-back to a simpler time. Very pleasant. The waitress was friendly and quick with the tea and coffee we ordered first. There is no alcohol served here. The menu promises all-day breakfast and a number of old favorites - grilled cheese, burgers, sandwiches, etc. I... More

We ordered the Russell Williams breakfast special, soooooooo much food for $12. Our waitress was down right nasty though, it was like she was angry we were there. I was there with my bestie and therefore it did not effect us because we were just happy to hangout and have good eats.

One look at this place and you should know what you're getting. An old neighborhood diner. That's not a bad thing, sometimes you just crave the old style family restaurant: Outdated everything means you'll find some childhood memories regardless of where you're from. This isn't a modern diner offering "takes" or "updated classics", it's "Hot sandwiches" homemade LTOP burgers, Bacon/Eggs... More

First visit here and was already warned the place was in a bit of a time warp but we had brunch here and really enjoyed it. Very friendly wait staff and will perhaps return here one day if the visit permits

Breakfast was very good and quickly delivered. Staff was very attentive and friendly. Restaurant is rather rustic, pub style. Bathrooms a bit rough.

Friends took us here for a breakfast one Saturday morning and it was a delight, even though they were obviously busy. There were 8 of us and we all ordered slightly different things so it was nice to see the variety of good food that came out. Service was pleasant and fast, coffee offered several times. The food came out... More
