Enjoyed my omelette! I was able to substitute a salad for the home fries (diabetic), and even though we brought in quite a crowd, they were very accommodating. This place is a Burlington landmark, but we've never been in the almost 30 years of living in this area. Well worth the trip.

Have been going to Russsell Willliams since 1966. Hasn't changed too much in that time. Still go once a month with a bunch of friends for breakfast. Still by far the best and most reasonable breakfast in town and I have tried many elsewhere. Portion are generous. Standard breakfast includes bacon, eggs, home made fried potatoes and toast as well... More

Generally, when meeting up with 14 people in a restaurant you fear the worst. SOMEONE will not like the service, the food, the tables, the decor, the washrooms, etc, etc. BUT in this case, there was not ONE single complaint. Right from the start, our server, Diane, was attentive, personable and willing to help in any capacity. As a previous... More

This is a very popular restaurant for locals in the Burlington area who just want to have a huge breakfast in a very very casual environment. The restaurant hasn't changed in 50 years - arborite tables and chintzy wallpaper and faux wood panels but nonetheless is a reasonably comfy environment. The food is what you would expect from a place... More

They have a really old fashioned hamburger that hits the spot. Nice sesame seed bun, perfect fried crust on the burger and good coleslaw and decent French fries. Only thing that needs improvement is their coffee.

We were only in town for a short while and had a little time to kill and our cab driver recommended this place for breakfast. It was delicious and generous and our server was a delightfully chippy Scottish lady who took great care with us. If you're in Burlington and looking for a great breakfast I highly recommend this restaurant.

Stopped in the other day to have lunch at Russell Williams in Burlington. As mentioned by many previous reviewers, the restaurant hasn't changed inside since the '70's. We had 4 people at our table and everyone was full to the brim when we left. I had the Julienne salad that was absolutely delicious served with off the roast turkey, ham,... More

Two of us had a great meal and great service. I had the chicken parmesan special. Vegetables were just right, not mushy. French fries were golden and crispy. The chicken was juicy and yummy too. Good coffee. Quick service. Friendly staff. We went back again in the morning and had breakfast too.
