“steak house fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

Russels is a great place. They have huge crab legs, and great steak. Inside is fun and cozy with excellent service. Located nicely right over the Covered Bridge.

“Russells was good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

We went because Russell’s was offering a 50% discount on all entrées (Russell's, Bridge Street's Cozy Little Steakhouse, 228 Bridge St., Vail, CO 81657, tel. 970-476-6700, web: www.russellsvailcom). It looks like a steakhouse—lots of dark wood. We had a good server named Kate and the meal was good too. First we were brought bread and whipped butter. We shared one fish entrée which came with rice pilaf with a tarragon cream sauce and vegetables. The kitchen split the meal even though we had said we would do that at the table. The vegetables were zucchini and yellow squash and it was a big portion. The portion of grouper was good-sized too and we asked for it blackened. It was a good preparation. We also ordered a side of mushrooms. They were white mushrooms sautéed in a tasty and slightly spicy brown sauce of black pepper and sherry. We each had a glass of wine, one Postales Malbec $8 and one Graf Reisling $8. Both were good too. The total bill was $45.

“Perfect Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

Based on Tripadvisor reviews we tried Russells and were not disappointed. Arrived before 6 and had no problem getting a table despite no reservation. Tried the Teriacci sirlion and it was the best sirlion I've ever had - delicious marinated and cooked rare to perfection. Only issue was my sons ribs which were a bit dry but minor niggle. Service good and was not affected as place filled up. Good atmosphere - recommended.

“Great steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

We loved the steak here. The view of the main road in Vail was fun to see since we had never eaten here before. The service was excellent.
