It was great food but the service is really slow now. It is very expensive as well ... but that seems to be the norm in Russell for some reason.

We brought a Grab One special which was 2 stonegrill dinners and a Fondue to share for dessert. We went over on a Sunday afternoon for lunch and had a lovely afternoon. The food was lovely. Fondue was delicious. The service was a bit slow though. There seemed to just be 1 girl on trying to service all of the tables. But apart from that it was great. We will be back.

If you don't want to queue, spending your time waiting for a table at a packed pub go along the beachfront and eat at The Wharf. Right on the beach, great food, great service.

The food we chose to pay for (oysters then fish & chips) was very tasty. HOWEVER we were very surprised when a $16.50 portion of chicken wings was served to the table and turned out to be four very small (even scrawny) wings. We asked the waiter if there had been a mistake - we were told no and if we had a problem then call the manager. We elected to return the dish to the kitchen. The waiter's rather frosty stare made eating our meal a little uncomfortable.

Casual ambiance, view, fantastic food choices. We loved being able to walk to and from our lodging to this central location.
Ask your B&B/hotel to make a reservation.
