We always feel pampered when we dine at Russell's. The dining room staff is attentive to your every need. The food is excellent, presented well, and served with a flourish. This past weekend, we celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary in grand style.

Wonderful atmosphere, fantastic service and delicious food. This is a total 5 star experience. From the moment we arrived to when we walked out the door we were treated as if we were the most important people. Service staff was very attentive and polite. The furnishings were beautiful and the meal was to die for. I would totally go again!!!

My husband's 10 oz. filet was done to perfection!! He enjoyed his meal completely and I ordered the half chicken which was done to my perfection. Since it was a celebration our waitress came out with a little surprise ; 2 chocolate covered strawberries with a sparkler. That completed our celebration that night. The service was over and above our... More

My colleagues and I went to Russell's for dinner and we all enjoyed ourselves. Upon entering the restaurant, we were very impressed by the very classy ambience. We were told there was a forty-five minute wait, but Mr. Salvatore himself came over to say hello and informed us that a table was immediately being prepared for our party of six.... More

The package included an overnight stay in a Jacuzzi suite with dinner and hot buffet breakfast. It was awesome. The room was beautiful and spotless. The dinner for 2 was delicious. I had the filet mignon and my husband had the peppercorn chop. Way too much for us to eat comfortably. Those dinners also included a good portion for dessert.... More
