Great ice cream no matter where you get it, but if you go out to there farm you can sit on the porch in a rocking chair and enjoy the sunset also.

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

But is rather a limited, fixed price menu. Choice of three entrees and add two sides from a short list. All for $9.95 plus drink, tax and tip. All the food is fantastic and the meat loaf is NOT to be missed. Real mashed potatoes, homemade gravy and the garden-fresh lima beans makes for a country-style meal. Wife and I... More

I hate to say this because I like to support local restaurants, but Russells was a like a cheap steak house with high prices, lousy service and poor food. It just was plain unsatisfying with the seating kind of strange putting us in a room where the extra fridge was located. $100.00 and just no a whole lot to praise... More

We have visited this restaurant many times and we have experienced mixed experiences. Always ordering the filet, twice it was good. Tonight I ordered the Beef tips for 16.95, and they were tough as .shoe leather. VERY disappointed I felt insulted that they tried to even serve to call that imposter as beef tips. I was so distressed that I... More

We tried Russell"s Steakhouse tonight for the first time. We had talked about visiting here for yrs. Needless to say, we had high expectations. Boy, were we let down! The food was ok (salad was best part of meal), drinks were watered down, service was average, food way over priced for what you actually get, and atmosphere poor. We will... More

Our family went to Russells' on Mothers Day - We had a reservation because we had several young children with us, We waited close to an hour to be seated even though the dining room they showed us to had only 1 table occupied. Then no one gave us any service - no one asked if we wanted anything else,... More
