Old School Business


Russ’ restaurants have been in business since 1934. Founded in Zealand, MI….there are 12 locations in Muskegon, Holland, Grand Haven and Grand Rapids.

Russ’ longevity is simple….what it does – it does well….nothing fancy….just consistent….and that is what the customer expects every time they enter the front door.

The photo is of the Muskegon/Henry St. Location….while the carhop service is no longer available it does have something that few other restaurants might not….and what makes Russ’ unique. Though it may be out-of-date….the tel-in-dine area is still in use.






Just pick up a telephone and call an order in to the kitchen (the wait person brings it to the booth).

Old school for sure….yet still effective and part of the Russ’ culture.
