We were very disappointed in all ways possible. Rude staff, low quality food, and dingy furnishings.

Great place to go get a quick but good breakfast. I had a BLT sandwich and a hashbrown. It was reasonably priced and served quick. Drove by the restaurant several times and it was always full. Wait staff was friendly.

This breakfast place is definitely not one to pass up! Some of THE best breakfast I've ever had! It's a small place so it's get super busy and packed so get there early! I'd recommend anything there, but my favorite is the pancakes and grits!

I had half a Belgium pecan waffle and half biscuit and gravy. You could definitely tell the gravy was homemade. It was delicious. Everyone that went liked their food but be prepared to wait a while. The place gets pretty crowded in the mornings.

Not a place I would go back to for breakfast. The food was not great, service was ok, and the total cleanliness was suspect. I definitely would not recommend eating there.

I wrote a review of Russell's a few weeks ago, but for reason I can't find it. Let me say right up front that I'm pretty turned off by some of these negative reviews, because they just don't right true. Bugs? I doubt it. In fact, I flat out disbelieve you ever saw a bug in this restaurant. They have... More

I ate breakfast here back in may and well While waiting on my food I saw 2 roaches craw up the wall. Yes I know that you can not have everything polishing clean but that is something I do not want to see while eating

I am a regular customer, always enjoy the food and the company of the staff. Anyone new to the area or just visiting I recommend that they give it a try.

This place gets voted "best breaksfast in Cape Fear". So when I order pancakes they should taste like pancakes, not hamburger grease from the previous order. I've tried this place several times and the service is borderline friendly and the food mainly tastes frozen. The owners need to come up with a way to control the flies too, nasty
