DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY AVOID !!!!!!! – The food is overrated and the kitchen is filthy. The owner/ host is rude and a total dirt bag was extremely rude to me and my family. Would never go back. Avoid this place
average plus – pastrami sandwich - way too much mustard (dripping out into the wrapping). The meat was not fatty but did not have a lot of flavor.
AVOID at all costs ! SLOW SERVICE and terrible food – I went on a saturday morning before going shopping at the eastern market ! my thought was ? WHY do people come here ??? this Place has terrible service ! the food was slow and Not even Standard fare ???
AGAIN Why do prople come to this place ? Apparently the eastern Market area has a LARGE need for a normal Restaurant !! the people must think this kind of place is normal ??? NO , NO, NOT this place !
Time to find anywhere esle but this Small overcrowed Place Stinks too ! the place smelled as though the restroom had overflown and not cleaned up ! what a thing for a restaurant ! NEVER AGAIN !!
A fun place to eat at the Eastern Market – Five of us ate breakfast yesterday at Russell Street and we had a great time. The service was terrific (very friendly and attentive), the food was good and the atmosphere was really fun. It's VERY popular and lines form early on Saturdays, so expect a long wait unless you're near the head of the line.
Best corned beef I have ever had – Corned Beef fans listen up this is the best and leanest corned beef you will find in the Detroit metro area. Try it on sourdough with horsradish to taste or in your omelette with cheese and mushrooms, it's the best! Speaking of omelettes try the smoked sausage and cheese, you won't be disappointed. Home made soups made from stratch, I can honestly say I have never ordered anything at the Russell street deli that I didn't like. The line out the door says it all. It's definitely worth the wait!
Just follow the long line of eager diners to this Eastern Market gem where the breakfasts are the shining star. – In Short
This place is informal; you may share a table with some interesting folks. Hashed browns are made from scratch. Spicy corned beef comes with eggs. Any omelet special, such as havarti, dill and asparagus starts the day off right. Fluffy pancakes are served with fresh fruit and Traverse City maple syrup. For lunch go with the grilled vegetable sandwich, with roasted red pepper, grilled portabella, eggplant, zucchini, chevre and sun-dried tomato pesto.
Downtown Deli Treat (DDT) – I visit the Russell Street Deli every Saturday that I can. The scrambled and omellete specials are alway tantilize the tastebuds and inspire the imagination. Sometimes, there just downright cute! Like Green Eggs & Ham. I have fun with this one everytime. Anyway, there is usually great conversation to be had with your tablematess as well. Although not required, the right mix and you've got yourself a down right memorable moment. If you've never tried it, stop denying yourself this small pleasure. If it's been a while, don't forget you're missed. If you're a veteran, see you Saturday!
