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.

Based on Tripadvisor reviews we tried Russells and were not disappointed. Arrived before 6 and had no problem getting a table despite no reservation. Tried the Teriacci sirlion and it was the best sirlion I've ever had - delicious marinated and cooked rare to perfection. Only issue was my sons ribs which were a bit dry but minor niggle. Service good and was not affected as place filled up. Good atmosphere - recommended.

We loved the steak here. The view of the main road in Vail was fun to see since we had never eaten here before. The service was excellent.

Russell's is about the last place you see before going through the covered bridge and out of Vail Village. So, it is kind of easy to forget about; but well worth remembering. It is situated on Gore Creek, has a lovely view, and excellent food.

My very cool and laid back parents in their 50s were in town and my husband and I wanted to take them out for a good steak in Vail Village. I've been to Russell's before and it was a fantastic experience. This time, not so much. We ordered the scallops to start and they took about 20 minutes to get to the table--this was totally fine as we were happy to sit with our drinks and chat. The problem was that before we were even finished with the scallops, all of our steaks came to the table. The server's reasoning was that t"he steaks were ordered medium rare so they came out quickly". Wouldn't you expect that she would have waited to fire the second course until the timing was right? Still not a huge deal but then our sides lagged behind a few minutes so the timing was just off the entire meal. Thank goodness the food was excellent--props to the kitchen, their work was what we expected of Russell's.
