We were seated with three grandchildren and while they colored we waited. We watched 3 tables have dishes removed and checks presented. There were only two more tables one of which was us. After waiting and not getting a drink order or a food order placed we decided to leave. There were two servers available to serve the 5 tables... More

I ate at this restaurant on a whim using TripAdvisors "near me now" function to find a restaurant while on my way to the Philly airport. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this restaurant and can easily see why it's a favorite of locals. My server was terrific, very professional and efficient. I ordered one of the soup...

Russell's is one of my favorite places to eat and drink. The food is great, and it is nice to sit out on the deck when it is warm. The servers are always prompt and courteous. I am also glad they finally renovated the parking lot.

Get there early!!!!!!!!! A 4 o'clock dinner is always a good idea because this place fills up fast. Parking can be a problem if the place is full.

Beautiful place!! We sat in front of the fire place. Very cozy! But the waitress was so pushy. We barely sat down when she came to take our order. Not our drink order. Our meal order! Could have waited till I got my menu open. Very push. I was not pleased. The food was ok but a little expensive for... More

The deck is expansive and what most people think when you say TJ Rockwells. Great way to spend a warm evening. Appetizers are large and tasty. Dinners on the other hand are a step down. Inconsistent quality from visit to visit. We used to eat there for family get togethers but interest waned.

The food is very well prepared and delicious. Portion size is appropriate. wait staff is not knowledgeable on all items on menu. There seems to be disagreements between what front staff promises and wait staff can deliver as far as substitutions. Call ahead seating is available but not reservations. Staff seemed pleasant and wanting to please. There also seemed to... More

Service takes forever & manager is just as rude as his untrained staff. Took 20 minutes to get drink refills with no apology - just an "I forgot" from waitress. Someone from the kitchen brought out our appetizer after 45 minutes but took it away without any explanation and never returned. Complained to manager who again didn't apologize & said... More
