Description: Just across the Covered Bridge in Vail Village is Bridge Street's warm, cozy and oldest steak house - Russell's. We have a friendly, relaxing atmosphere with wonderful Creekside dining. Russell's features dry aged Certified Angus beef, along with delightful fish entrees and world-renowned Alaskan King Crab Legs. One side dish that you can't pass up is our scalloped potatoes - baked with onions, bacon and cheese with a golden brown top. A lot of our staff members have been with us for 20 years or more. Come by and see for yourself why the locals and staff love Russell's. We take great pride in serving premier steaks and seafood in the most enjoyable and accommodating restaurant in Vail. Reservations recommended.

“Delicious steaks”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

We eat here every time we visit Vail. We got the surf and turf with king crab legs and filet. Great wine list. Yummy. Waitress not too friendly, but we loved our meal.

“A wonderful dining experience when visiting Vail Resort”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Russell's is a not-to-be-missed dining experience if you find yourself in the Vail Village adjacent to the wonderful slopes. Excellent menu, doting staff, nice wine selection and great presentation makes this a restaurant I return to year after year. Need reservations...but the wait is worth it!

“the best”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We have had dinner at Russell's in the summer and this past winter. Actually had the same server who really knows how to treat people. My wife and I feel the food and service here is the best in Vail. Always fresh ingredients, large portions, steaks tender and cooked to order. Highly recommend but I guess everyone else does also so you definitely need a reservation.

“Great Food, Great Wine!”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

We visited Russell's for a birthday dinner and had a very enjoyable experience. The food is outstanding and the wine selection is wonderful. We shared the grilled fish of the day as well as the slow cooked ribs. The potato side dish is great and a staple of the restaurant.
We will definitely go back and can't wait for another fun night out!

“Great steak”
Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

This is a must stop if you like a great steak. We have stopped and ate here our last three visits. Each time we have never been disappointed. I wish I could remember our waiters name, he was great, he knew the menu, he over heard our conversation about what we thought of ordering and saved the last special (lamb) for us just in case we were going to order it. (Which we did)

You won't be disappointed.

Thank Dave P
