We had heard that their breakfast was really good so we decided to give it a shot. We waited about 20 minutes to be seated because they were HOPPING! Our Waitress was very friendly. The Food was an Average Breakfast - not bad, but nothing exciting. The price is much like a diners which is fine.

We had excellent service when we arrived and ordered traditional fare. Coffee refills were on target. My pancake was not warm and clearing the table was obviously not the standard. We will go back.

There are better choices for a diner than Russells. The bacon they serve is of poor quality and sliced unbelievably thin. The food her is average at best.

If you're on Oak Island & looking for an inexpensive, yet decent place to grab breakfast or lunch, it's pretty hard to go wrong at Russells. Located on the main island road (Oak Island Drive, imagine that!), it's about 1/2 way up or down the island, depending on which way you're traveling. Breakfasts are down right awesome! If you arrive... More

Go here for breakfast every visit to Oak Island and enjoy it every time. Always busy, and always good. Wait staff friendly; keep your coffee cup full and hot. Portions good.

After hearing good reviews from locals and on Trip Advisor we finally stopped in for breakfast this week. Very disappointing. Coffee is weak and lukewarm. I ordered cheese and bacon omelet. The cheese was a slice of processed, not even melted, and the bacon was placed in the omelet in long strips, difficult to cut with fork. Egg was the... More

We had uber friendly waitresses. I've given this a 3 star because we went in on tuesday and it was icy cold, furnace was not working and blowing cold air. We went back on Friday and although it was a bit warmer they still had not fixed it and we were told it had been 6 days. The food was... More

Western omelet was extremely bland, not to mention small. Wife had french toast that was very thin with little flavor. I think the wet mop in the corner may have had more personality than the wait staff.
