Food is delicious, steaks are great as are the appetizers but 2 out of the three times we have been there the order was screwed up. One time, the waitress put in the wrong item and basically made us take it anyway. She gave us soup and dessert free, but when you want steak, you don't want chicken! We like... More

We went here for a date night hoping for a nice steak dinner. The outside is just fine, the waitress seated us quickly. She took us to a table in a back area- you have to walk thru the server's area to a poorly lit room with carpeted floors and what looks like another steak grill (or hibachi?). Our table... More

The atmosphere is not what you would expect for such an expensive steak. Either class the place up or bring down the price.

Ate here last night for a Christmas gathering. We had a choice of fillet, chicken, or salmon. All three came with a salad. The food was average, nothing that stood out. I have had better and have had worst. When we got the bill it was about $70 for two steaks and waters. NOT very impressed to me. I won't... More

The location was very convenient to our hotel, we walked over. The breakfast menu offered enough variety and a good prices. Loved the home fries. The fruit boat was worth the little extra, my 4yo grandson ate the whole thing. Cozy, rustic feel to the restaurant. The whole staff was very friendly and helpful.

I had a Living Social coupon to use to this restaurant and....finally was able to stop there two days ago for lunch. Must say, after reading the menu, on line, and expecting fantastic Angus beef, I was disappointed. I did order a burger with cheese, bacon, lettuce and tomato. The menu indicated steak fries were included. The burger was dry... More

After a long day of travel, the woman at our hotel's front desk recommended Russell's when we told her we didn't want fast food. It was 8:30 at night, and we were looking forward to a nice relaxing meal. Unfortunately for us, it was one of the first nights that the new chef was on his own. They were out... More
