Russell's was the best place we went while in Vail. The wait staff was friendly, and very accommodating even though I had a broken ankle.

The food was OK, nothing really special and so not worthy for the price. The hostess wasn´t nice and the waitress kept forgetting our drinks.

the meals are very good the service is not, looks like they are going to make you a favor, we arrive early to our reservation trying to have some drinks before at the bar and they can not accommodated us, lack of interests on costumer satisfaction.

Excellent. Great martinis, apps, fantastic steak cooked perfectly, and really reasonably priced, particularly given it's location just over the covered bridge on Bridge Street in Vail. We will go back again and again.

I had the Alaskan Crab legs at Russell's. They were literally the length of my elbow to my fingers and about as thick as my wrist. They were humongous and I never thought I could possibly be that full from just two crab legs!!! They were amazing and fresh to boot. The service was friendly and welcoming. The ambience makes...
