I recently visited Russell's after a few years to be reminded of why I never go there. Bad food, slow service, dirty bathrooms, and a freezing dining room. I will never go back.

Large selection of specials & entrees.Didn’t do appetizer. Had eggplant /veal parmigiana. EXCELLENT!! Creamy cheesecake for dessert. Go & enjoy yourself. You won’t be disappointed. They had outdoor organ player& a singer. Very talented. Higher mid price range.
