Russell’s Place Restaurant is a classic breakfast and lunch restaurant that brings traditional diner-style and wholly American fare to the heart of the Cape Fear region. With a basic but sprawling menu that focuses on all the breakfast and lunch items that patrons love, Russell’s is a solid destination for Oak Island vacationers who want a hearty start to a day on the seashore.
The restaurant is located along Oak Island Drive, just a few block from the beach, which makes it a convenient breakfast or lunch spot for beachgoers from all across the island. Breakfast is the big highlight at Russell’s, (and arguably takes up the biggest portion of the menu), and patrons will find a wide selection of country fresh egg platters, omelets, pancakes, sandwiches, and Belgian waffles to choose from, as well as big “Bear” plates that have a little of veritably all of the above. For lunch, patrons can munch on sandwiches and sides, or a hearty lunch plate that comes with choice of meat, (like crab cakes, ham, or hamburger steak), and two sides. Basic but perfectly filling, Russell’s Place Restaurant is a family-friendly destination where everyone in the vacationing party will surely find something to suit a big morning appetite.
