the service is poor and very slow. the food is cold. the waitress was condescending and acted as if she had better things to do. the other russ' in Holland, which is about 20 miles south is a much nicer place with nicer people, and the food gets to the table hot.

My husband and I and another couple go to Russ' at least once a week. We usually have the soup, salad and potato bar. They have a fantastic array of soups. If it is not on the bar you can ask for it and they usually have it in the kitchen. Their deserts are to die for. All of their... More

Russ's is a local chain of restaurants who are noted for their onion rings, soups and chicken dinners. Wide variety of dinner plates available as well as burgers too. Family friendly. Food is average, service great.

Everything is cold and the service gives a chill. Waitresses are very rude and even though some have been there "for years" according to the managment, they could not get the orders right and when there was a complaint, "food is wrong, food or coffee is cold" they just walk away! When she left we thought she went to resolve... More

That's how my great-grandfather would always describe it. There's nothing spectacular about it (except maybe the onion rings, which are terrific), but it's always solid and a good value. Service is always attentive. Kids' dinners are a bargain at $1.99. Speaking of gramps, he'd still fit in there today, although he'd be 132 years old. Very much an older crowd.

My wife and I had the above buffet and it was pretty tasty. Good selection of soups but the salad bar was a bit short in it's offerings. We have eaten here before and had the hot sandwiches which were just okay. We would go back but would opt for the soup, salad, potato buffet.

To quote ny wife after our only trip to the Russ, "The food and clientele is from a hospital cafeteria." I had an open faced hot turkey sandwich that was smothered in nasty greenish cafeteria gravy. Their desserts were supposed to be great, but the pies just tasted like any Denny's pie. We won't be returning.

Good burger; average fries, definitely showing its age as are most of the customers. Next time I will go elsewhere.
