We stopped here for dinner and decided to order "non-fried" which was our mistake. We got the steak and shrimp, both were over-cooked. We also tried the fresh fish special that night and unfortunately that fish was also over-cooked. For the price we were disappointed....More

This was our first visit to Russell's. There is no wait to sit on the bar side. The decor is old school and the staff is very friendly. We tried the wings... Yum! And the seafood platter. Everything was delicious and fresh. If your looking...More
