Must have reservations! It is always packed. This place is a small gem tucked away in an inconspicuous corner off the beaten path but it is worth the trip. If you are looking for a chicken sandwich or hamburger this is not the place for you. They serve higher end Italian or Cajun style meals at a reasonable price in... More

Met friends here for a nice dinner. Weren't sure what to expect from a place that is Italian and Creole but came away wowed. Started with BBQ shrimp app. at $15. The flavor was the same as when we had it in New Orleans. The bread basket they served was so good. Salads were nice and sized perfectly. I had... More

I have never been disappointed with mesl or service st Russo's. We enjoyed the warm bread & olive oil with a white wine from their excellent selection. A green salad with blue cheese crumbles and white French dressing was excellent. And the entree was the highlight. Grilled scallops (2) with 3 pieces of walleye. Grilled veggies & mac& cheese competed... More

This restaurant is a family favorite. Absolutely fantastic food and a lively and unique atmosphere. I would say the restaurant has a mix of Cajun and Italian food. I've visited Russo's for a date night, with the family and also with people from work. The food is extremely high quality and they always have a lot of specials so the... More

Having lived in the area for many years, and having traveled by Russo's many times, we've often stated, as we've driven by, "Must stop in and try them." So last week, for my partner's birthday, we made reservations for what turned out to be an amazing visit and dining experience. We were greeted, plus promptly seated, and treated as tho... More

Although it had been a couple of years since our previous visit, we remembered two things: enjoying the food and high prices. The occasion was a get-together with great friends who have recently moved out of state and we're back in town for a visit. They chose the restaurant. Firstly, let me say it was very, very loud. I had... More

I was traveling on business and a colleague took me here. The place is not impressive inside nor out but the atmosphere is quaint and the service above average. We see seated within minutes. I ordered the shrimp and grits. It was a perfect portion with 6 medium shrimp grilled in grits with mushrooms. It was excellent. The price is... More

My wife and I have been there many times. The food is a blend of Italian and Creole which is unusual. However, it is well done. We especially like to reserve a seat at the bar and eat there because you can watch the kitchen crew working. The owner is usually at the grill and his wife is usually the... More
