We came to visit Holland for a long weekend to visit extended family. Hadn't been here in eight years but last time we were treated to dinner at Russ's and I thought it was absolutely great. Maybe I just caught them on a bad day but my family and I we're very disappointed. I had the tilapia dinner and it... More

My husband and I had dinner here after 7 pm on a Wednesday evening. When we were seated there were probably only 4 or 5 occupied tables. There were 2 waiters to handle the remaining diners since they closed at 9 pm. All of a sudden every table for 2 or 4 was full and a large party of 10... More

Best family restaurant in Holland. Soup & Salad bar, breakfast, lunch and dinner served. We love the Fried Chicken dinner, Hot Turkey sandwich, meatloaf dinner. Everything is excellent. Their pies are so good, best way to finish the meal off. No alcohol served, just a good ole' fashion home cooked meal.

We hadn't eaten at the original East Town Russ' for about five years. We stopped for a quick soup lunch. My husband had the chili, which he thought was okay, not great. I ordered the Reuben soup, because I remembered it being quite good. For this meal, I was very disappointed in the soup's flavor, which was kind of non-existent,... More

I used to go to Russ' every week with my Grandma. We always had fabulous servers and anything that was on the menu was always available. Now, they have rude staff who don't care about your experience and most of the time they are out of whatever it is I want to order. Don't go in expecting to get the... More

Service was off today. We were given the excuse that a large Hope group came in. Maybe, but that should be part of the plan. If staff can't handle a morning crowd...... More staff is needed. All that said..... Breakfast was good.

We love to eat here when in town! My husband grew up in Grand Rapids and remembers this family restaurant fondly! His big brother used to take him here and he loves it!
