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

We went to Russell's knowing we were craving ribs and drinks. We were definitely not disappointed! Our waitress, Oriana, was totally awesome. She was funny, personable and "down to the earth" great (In Maine that's means she is wonderful)! Oriana's attention to details without being...More

An awesome place for a great steak. Make a reservation and request a window seat overlooking the water for an awesome experience. Fantastic service. I highly recommend the Steak Diane. Make sure you save room for chocolate cake.

Had dinner at Russell's while recently visiting Vail. Restaurant is tucked away inside Vail Village but is worth the trip. Service is great and view of the bridge and Gore Creek if you get a window seat is nice. Good selection of foods that were...More

Russell's has been in the same location in Vail for decades. The food is always reliable and delicious. I almost always have the Rainbow Trout and it's always delicious!!

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.
