We ate here based on the reviews it got. Went here with two small children (3 and 10 months). The kids menu was for ten and under unless you wanted a baby plate consisting of mashed potato and vegetables for three and under? Ok my three year old can eat a regular meal just in smaller portions so that wasn't... More

We were here for supper. Large tasty portions freshly made. The decor is simple and is an ole fashioned diner. Service is very good. Food took a bit but nothing too unbearable. It is worth the wait. Try the Paul Bunyon and the Mennonite Alfredo. Awesome!!!

Love this place! The portions are huge, and everything is home made. The Saskatoon jack salad is to die for! Service can be a bit iffy sometimes, but the food makes up for it.

One word to described this place...DELICIOUS! I know breakfast is one of the easier meals to make...but this place did it right! Portion sizes were huge and not overly priced. I like the option of having pierogies instead of hashbrowns as well. I had a standard breakfast of bacon and eggs with toast and hashbrowns. The two slices of toast... More

Read the reviews of this restaurant on Trip Advisor and planned to eat there on the day we were in Swift Current. After driving around locating it, we found it to be in a strip mall of mostly industrial businesses. Were disappointed to find on our arrival that this restaurant closes at 3 p.m. on Wednesdays.

Come with an appetite or don't be afraid to ask for a doggie bag. Meals are all homemade with Russell's unique cooking skills.

If I'm going to Swift Current and Russell Up Some Grub isn't open - I have a SAD face - the food is great - it takes time when the food is cooked fresh - and boy is it good! When my husband was on weight watchers - they knew exactly what to do for his diet.....LOVE IT ! It's... More

If you are looking for something unique and tasty for breakfast you should definitely hit this place up. If is kind of hard to find-small colorless, unnoticeable sign. But it is worth the effort. We went for breakfast-staff was awesome, coffee was always full and food was fast-and AMAZING. They clearly make their own bread here, and that is what... More
