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!

Why do I eat here? It's convenient and never crowded. This is the original in the chain and its age is showing. The decor is old and out of date, the place is filthy (especially the bathroom, not "Dutch clean" by any means) and the food is sub par most of the time. Management needs to wake up and make...

This Dutch Family Restaurant chain is a great place to get a good breakfast. It offers both menu and buffet breakfasts and is part of the Holland old school charm.
