Russell's Smokehouse

Russell’s Smokehouse is a nod to an early time, to the spirit of the West and the cowboy tradition of cooking over a slow, low flame. Our specialty is not in the sauce (which is why we don't call it barbecue), but in the rich smoke and the method of cooking.

"I was looking for a place close to the hotel I was staying and I found the food quality good. I believe they are known for their BBQ, but I had BBQ the night before and tried their fried catfish."

"Walked in to a crowded lobby and an empty restaurant. As soon as we sat a very loud static noise came on the speakers and it took them at least 30 seconds to turn it off. Our servers were visibly disappointed we didn't buy alcohol. The food was ok... the ribs did not wow us whatsoever--meat wasn't falling off the bone, meat was tough and cool. The sliders were small and had very little meat--definitely not worth $10. I can't say I'll be coming back or recommending this place to anyone else. Very disappointing based on the reviews I read."

"The food here was awesome! The restraunt has a mix of casual and romantic up until peak dinner hours after 6 pm or so. My only nit pick is wine is expensive, but thats any nice restraunt. I would gladly go back."

"Wait staff was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Nice selection of Bourbon and Rye Whiskey's. Smoked bone marrow appetizer was awesome as was the Smoke Rib Combination main entre. You have to try this Smokehouse when you are in downtown Denver."

"I had a fantastic meal at Russell's Smokehouse. Denver's restaurant week was ongoing so I was able to get a 3 course meal for $30. For an appetizer, I had prime rib sliders, which were good enough that I wished they were the main course. My entree was the best smoked brisket I've ever eaten, and dessert was good too.
Our service was excellent and very fast. We were in a bit of a rush but still had time to relax and enjoy our meals before finishing up and heading back out in under an hour. The restaurant is in a unique spot below the main street and in a great location to access most of downtown. I was only in the city a short time, but still had a chance to try several highly-recommended restaurants in the area. Russell's was easily my favourite.
I will definitely be back if I ever return to Denver."

"Good food but very unsatisfactory level of service. Especially disappointing because the restaurant appeared to have an adequate number of servers and there were many empty tables at the time."

"Great happy hour. Cant bear sandwich and craft draft for $10. Also, the loaded chips are addictive."

"This is a little hole in the wall restaurant in the bowels of Larimer Square. Unique. Casual but nice. I wouldn't go there for the ambiane, but the food was amazing. However, I felt it was a little overpriced and little skimpy on portions."

"I guess I expected a little more from a place that is reservation only. The service was great and everyone was very kind. I did feel we were seated way too close to the people surrounding us, we could hear every conversation in the room...clearly! I felt like this is more of a "group" atmosphere instead of a couple out on a date night. The food was really good but I felt overpriced. I would recommend this place for a group of people but as for that special someone and your date night plans this wouldn't be my first choice. I wish I had a better experience because I was really excited as I had heard great thi gs about Russell's Smokehouse. I will say the good was really good...and the people that work there were very kind and all smiles. I did like that."

"This restaurant is located a block beneath the street so you have to pay attention to find the sign and take the staircase down. Once you do you'll find a cozy little hideaway with great BBQ. The ribs sampler was excellent. 3 kinds of ribs. Very flavorful dry rub over quality meat, and the BBQ sauce was delicious. Sides were also very good. Sweet potato fries were among the best I've ever had, and the sautéed carrots and mushrooms were very tasty. Highly recommend it."
