The wife wanted to try Russell's from a good review she saw in the paper. The shrimp and crab dip was tasty, but our waiter presented a basket of saltines and captain crackers in the wrappers for dipping. This cheapened the meal for me. We...More

C D M, Sorry your HIGH hopes were not fulfilled at Russell's. I am wondering if you mentioned your problems with your server. Since your server was above average I'm guessing you did not. Summertime is very busy and things go wrong from time to...More
