Nice sit down restaurant in heart of Vail Village

Great steakhouse atmosphere in Vail Village. Would highly recommend for an evening dinner where you want to dress up. Walking distance to most of the properties in Vail Village and Lionshead, or just a quick shuttle ride to. Great steak and pasta dishes.

Steak is served with style and substance here, but one gets the sense other options are equally solid, so overall another recommended diner in Vail.

Surf or turf? Went because of the previous reviews. Dated décor in a good location. Unfortunately, the menu could use some updating too. If you sit by a limited window seat, you might be a little more forgiving but for the prices you pay, you would expect a little more. The service, however, was excellent.

This past weekend the restaurant was having a special of 50% off all entree's. So myself and a few coworkers went out to enjoy ourselves. After a bottle of wine to start off dinner, we tried almost every appetizer they had available. Unfortunately they ran out of a few things but we made due! I loved the sausage wrapped in... More

A little noisy and crazy on a Friday night, next time we will request a quieter table. Food was good, the crab legs will be on my mind until I visit again next year. The ribs are also to die for. Great little spot right on Bridge street.

You really expect a steak house to deliver a steak cooked to order, so I was bummed to see my rib-eye (though in a tasty teriyaki sauce), an over done "medium" when the waiter assured that my "medium rare" order would be exactly right. The starter of tomato and mozzarella was tasty in a well seasoned balsamic but my husband's... More

The staff was curt - from the hostess to the waitress. If their overwhelmed by the volume of guests that cycle through this popular stop than they need additional training to overcome the anxiety they exude. As much as I wanted this recommendation to be excellent; I couldn't find it. The steaks were average and none of ours came out... More

Russell's is a rustic steakhouse on Bridge Street. We were there on a Saturday night and it was busy. It was so noisy inside, it made conversation difficult. The service was great, though and the food was good, but arrived cold. We started with the bacon wrapped scallops, which were delicious. From there we moved on to King Crab and... More

But food is still good. Have been to Russell's twice this year. I go for the lamb chops they serve on Saturday. The first time they were out of lamb chops by 6:30. The second time my husband's steak was not cooked properly. Management made excuses for the kitchen but were flippant about it. Overall, disappointed
