Ranging from sandwiches to smaller plates to larger plates, the menu had a wide enough range to please pretty much anyone. I had excellent crab cakes and a side of potatoes that was wonderful. The four of us shared a cheese plate which was on the expensive side ($14) but had a nice variety of cheeses and excellent "toast" for the cheese, along with some nuts and cherries. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Prices overall are moderate but the value was excellent. The service was "unhurried" but not bad. The atmosphere is quite informal.

If you haven't been to Russell's on Macklind, you're missing a real treat. It's located in a residential neighborhood, with lots of old brick houses and pretty front porches. The restaurant is in an old building with an eating area inside, outside on the deck (with plenty of fans) and a patio area. The food is very economical, quite delicious and they have great coffee. The desserts are probably the best I've eaten anywhere.

Russell's is tucked into a quiet south side neighborhood. It's predecessor,Murdoch Perk, was greatly mourned when it closed, but Russell has improved what was already a wonderful place. It is very casual (walk up, order, take a number and wait for food to be delivered) for most of the day, but offers table service for dinner. Try to catch a shaded table outside on a warm late spring evening. Anything from the standard menu will surprise and delight, but the chef's off menu specials are indeed special! I had a Carrot-Rosemary soup that had me begging for the recipe. The only problem with Russell's is for dieters - while waiting to order, one is surrounded by an outstanding selection of very tempting desserts. Don't even try to resist!!

This is a gem in the SOHA neighborhood that is no longer a secret. Many have discovered the great breakfast menu (the fried egg sandwich is to die for!), then been wowed by the salads and sandwiches, and then amazed by the always delicious dinner menu (if they have the pork chop, I give it 10 stars!!) that changes with the seasonal ingredients. Service is always friendly and the patio in nice weather is inviting. The desserts are diet busters worth indulging in. Cakes, cookies and treats beyond belief! Bring your kids and your dogs (outside) and relax. You will be wishing it was in your neighborhood!
