Russell's was the best place we went while in Vail. The wait staff was friendly, and very accommodating even though I had a broken ankle.

The food was OK, nothing really special and so not worthy for the price. The hostess wasn´t nice and the waitress kept forgetting our drinks.

Excellent. Great martinis, apps, fantastic steak cooked perfectly, and really reasonably priced, particularly given it's location just over the covered bridge on Bridge Street in Vail. We will go back again and again.

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.
