I love breakfast and this place does it up just right. We've been countless times and the quality is consistent. Everything we've ordered has been fantastic. The atmosphere is a total 70's Swiss chalet vibe. Dark wood, kitschy memorabilia. The servers are quick on their feet and efficient. This spot is worth the wait for a table!!!!!

We stopped at this very busy restaurant knowing we would have to wait, fifteen minutes later we were seated! Our lunch consisted of a grilled cheese with bacon, fries and gravy for my daughter, and I had a hot roast beef dinner with fries (and gravy), and corn. We ordered a Coke, and Iced Tea. My daughter loved her fries... More

Work partner and I stopped here for lunch after seeing the full parking lot. Excellent "old style" family restaurant that also has an all day breakfast. Can't wait to come back and try it!

This is one of those places that no matter what you order, it's going to be great. The service is great, atmosphere is great, the whole place is great.

They do a great breakfast here, so we decided to take friends for dinner, which was a big mistake. Three of us had the dinner specials, 2 chicken Parmesan and one prime rib. The "salad bar" consisted of iceberg lettuce... no fresh salad toppings.... coleslaw,bean salad and chick peas were the choices. The Prime Rib was underdone, covered in thick... More

We have been here many times since moving to Burlington. It is quite busy on weekend mornings though so you usually have to wait for a table. The selection for breakfast is amazing though - they have everything!

I went myself to this restaurant while in town for business. I had heard recommendations galore on the radio and decided to try it. The waitress was at the table quickly, had no problem with my picky order and food came out quickly. The food was very good. The interior is beat up but I didn't come for the look... More

This is comfort food, plain and simple. The breakfast is unsurpassed - eggs, peameal, and the most incredible potatoes known to me! I have eaten at spectacular establishments all across North America and this one - 10km from my house - is by far my favourite. To be fair, I can not comment on any other food other than the... More

Russels have been around for a long time, if you are looking for a good home cooked meal then this is the place to be. Food is plenty, hot and cooked to order. Its not fancy but good.

This restaurant has been around since 1932 according to their menu. To me it seems it is desperate for upgrades, renos or a good cleaning BUT the relative we took loved it. It had that familiarity she loved. The food was exactly what she wanted and she appreciated the age of the restaurant. To her the portion sizes and prices... More
