Great place for breakfast. Have outside seating to accommodate our dog. The server was great as was the food. My wife had the French toast made with whole grain bread with bacon and berries $14.15. Small orange juice $2.99. I had eggs, ham, potatoes and toast $7.99 and a side of country gravy $1.59. A very busy place with limited parking but well worth stopping there.

25 years of going and nothing but the best breakfast!!

I have been going to this Lakefront restaurant since I was little. The best breakfast around! Just recently splurged and got the Bananas Foster Waffle--- to die for but a little embarrassing when brought to the table with vanilla ice cream piled high atop an enormous waffle. If you go on the weekend go early or later in the AM or there may be a wait, usually no more than 5-10 min or so. Food is always hot, fresh and comes pretty quickly. The freshly squeezed OJ is fantastic and coffee good! They have a good breakfast selection and prices reasonable. You won't be disappointed.

Best Casual Brunch

I have been going to Russell's for 30 years. There is little that has changed, and it's always been great! The ""Outback"" restaurant used to have to give credit for where they stole the Onion Blossom recipe..... if you don't know the original came from down south by the lake not the Outback!
Great soup, sandwiches, breakfast, and everything else.
I just love Russell's.

Best non-touresty place in New Orleans

The restaurant, at first, looks like another generic diner/lunch joint with frozen chicken tenders and bad coffee. Looks, however, are quite deceiving. I asked Paul, who owns it along with his wife, Kelly, to make me up a plate of his favorite foods. He was happy to do so. A plate turned into a sampling of everything good. Here is the list, in order, with reviews on everything.
Crabmeat and spinach bisque: Smooth and flavorful, with real crabmeat and plenty of spinach, excellent soup du jour.
Crab, shrimp, steak, and crawfish gumbo; Excellent, but not the best I've ever had.
Fried pickles: These are a must try; large cut dills, not chips, with a nice cool dipping sauce.
Fried onion, or bloomin' onion, like The Outback's: his remoulade sauce makes this wonderful.
Red beans and cornbread: A New Orleans staple; done up right here. Cornbread was excellent and home-made, slightly sweet.
Fried oysters dusted with cayenne pepper (or paprika); positively melt in your mouth delicious; fresh oysters lightly fried with cocktail sauce
Handmade crabcake with remoulade sauce: If you don't try anything else, try this. Best crabcake I've ever eaten, including Baltimore's ""finest"".
Spinach salad with avocado and green apples with a hot bacon honey mustard dressing. Also very very good; can't beat the dressing.
Open face roast beef po' boy with homefried potatoes; Also a New Orleans staple, but I'm not a big fan of po' boys or roast beef, although I'm sure a connoisseur would find it above par. It was hot and fresh and on french bread, quite good.
White chocolate bread pudding with sliced strawberries: This was utterly sinful, another must try. Best desert I have ever had, bar none.
Coffee: For some reason, their coffee was also very good. Rich and full.
