What a wonderful dinner outside at Russell's on a perfect evening. Great to feel "normal" after months of not going out with friends!
First time visiting for dinner and already looking forward to going back. Nice bar selections, and curated list of suggested drinks. Great appetizers and dinner selection. Did not feel like it was the same menu you see everywhere else. Sat on the patio and atmosphere was fantastic. Shared a dessert with the table, next time will get my own!
1st time dining out in over a year & Russell’s did not disappoint. Just as delightful & delicious as they always have been (our last visit to Russell’s was in Dec. 2019!). Thank you for keeping the health & safety of your employees & customers in mind. We’re SO glad y’all are still open & doing such great business! While we don’t live in St. Louis, we try to visit Russell’s as often as we can when we visit “The Lou!” Keep up the great work! (& Clayton, our server, was fabulous, as was the entire staff).
Russell's on Macklind never disappoints! If you want a beautiful patio experience or you are just trying to stay "safe" during these times... Russell's is your place! Although you can't reserve a patio table going early enough will ensure a spot! Part of the patio is covered but you still feel like you are outside in nature with the birds. Thank you Clint for the lovely evening! (Oh, and ask for Clint :) )
There isn't one thing I don't love about this restaurant except it is so far away from Wentzville. It is definitely my favorite or at least tied for top 3.
Thought the hamburger was overpriced. It came with no sides. The fries we ordered were very greasy.
Great food and ambiance.
Excellence as usual! Love everything about Russells!
We lived our server and the food. It was our friends birthday and the other guests joined us in singing him happy birthday. The food and drinks were perfect! :)
Everything was delightful - the service, food and setting! It’s the reason I visit this restaurant several times a month! Wouldn’t change a thing!
The food was delicious! Huge cinnamon rolls, good coffee, and great service! Patio was toasty warm :)
Wonderful food and service! Had a great burger and tasty pasta carbonara. The patio was very warm on a chilly evening. There is no social distancing with tables though.
Always enjoy going to Russell’s on Macklind! The food and service are always good:-)
Had a wonderful meal with friends and enjoyed the entire experience. Our waiter Bill (a favorite of ours) gave excellent service as he always does. Fabulous cocktails and great food.
This was the first restaurant we’ve been to since the pandemic where we actually enjoyed the total experience and felt normal. Felt very safe. Staff was very attentive and the food was delicious. Ordered a special that was off the menu and it would have been nice to have known the price.....my fault for not asking. Will definitely return.
This is a great place to go for switch from the chain breakfast places in town. We really enjoyed the breakfast burrito and the quiche of the day. Russell's also have fantastic bakery items. Our favorites were the blueberry muffin and the croissant with fruit. We highly recommend this place!
Beware OpenTable rating/review inflation. This is not a 5 star experience. As much as I want to pull for the "little" guy, I just cannot see this place hitting on all cyclinders in the foreseeable future.
It is not so big that the head manager - or whatever he is - can't slow down and perhaps engage in a friendly and cordial manner with the clientele. I mean, there are what - 5 tables in the main dining room? Or maybe this is just customary in St Louis?
Steak was served cold, the 2" thick porch chop was served in a bowl that was so small you could not cut the thing.
The ambiance of the physical surrounding is pleasant enough. But this is just not a happy place. From the top down, nobody seems happy.
It's too bad. I hope they get it together.
This place is always a slam-dunk in my opinion. The food is great. The service is impeccable. I just think you can't go wrong here.
Best Brunch in St. Louis! The food is delicious and the service is fantastic!
It was Fri so we had their fish/seafood specials. The foid was very good. I had the bbq shrimp & grits. Very tasty but too much bbq sauce-it made the soupy grits more so. FishnChips great. Kinda loud (1 table) couldnt hear waitress very well. She was fantastic but had too many tables. Overall very lovely experience.
As always the food was delicious. I'm not really a burger person but thought I'd give the one they had on the menu a try, absolutely delicious. They were very considerate because we were on the heated deck and it started to rain and the wind picked up so we asked if we could move inside and they were very helpful to do that. We always enjoy our experiences there. Of course one of their fabulous desserts had to go home with me for later. Highly recommend.
Was there for Sunday Brunch. I felt it was crowded for pandemic dining. Menu did not include any drinks (even coffee, tea, or any of the bar selections). Not many options for vegetarians. Biscuits were particularly good and all ordered items were presented promptly and presented well with no issues. Used a gift card and there was no way to include a tip on a gift card (even pre-emptively) so we had to scrounge up cash.
Good food. Good safety protocols. We'll go back.
It was so loud we could not hear our server. I realize this is not the restaurant's fault but it was not as good of an experience as usual.
We first came to Russell's shortly after they opened. The owner said that we would love the food and would never go away hungry. That has been the case on every visit.
Must try the giant cinnamon roll! Friendly staff and great atmosphere.
Russell’s is my favorite place to eat!
Russell's is always fabulous! We had the cinnamon roll, breakfast flatbread and French toast, all were good and we took some home along with carrot cake 😋
LOVE!!!!!! If you have not been to this establishment, you should go!!!!
This visit was less impressive than most
Great brunch. Tons of wonderful options
It was perfect!
Always one of my favorite restaurants that never disappoints. The food is delicious and the service is so friendly and attentive. Also, those desserts...
Everything was perfect for a birthday celebration. The food was delicious and the dessert was heavenly. Portions are large. Our server met all our needs.
Great experience all around! Our waitress was great, and both specials we ordered were excellent.
Very limited seating, but the place was hopping!, The food and the ambience was amazing, so good!
Excellent experience for dinner. We have gone for brunch a couple times before and it’s equally as wonderful.
Brunch was really bad!!! Bloody Mary’s were watery and tasteless. Breakfast burrito was again totally tasteless and bland. My husband got biscuits and gravy. “Biscuits” were hard square rocks and gravy was pasty. Stunned that they served a meal that was so pitifully awful.
Love, love, love russell’s. Sitting outside was amazing, the food is always spot on, cocktails are amazing and the staff is 5 star!!!
