Russells Marina Grill, New Orleans Lakefront- Its breakfast any time of the day!

     New Orleans has a lot of local places but not that many in the Lakefront near Lake Pontchtrain area since Katrina.  An easy drive from downtown in Lake View across from the New Orleans Marina you can find Russell’s Marina Grill at 8555 Pontchartrain Blvd.  The new version since Katrina is always a good spot.  I go because I like breakfast anytime of day.  This is no Denny’s and always has great service and plenty of ice tea.

    The entrance to the Marina is yards away from Russell’s Marina Grill.  This is one of New Orleans the few places still on the lake.  You will see some condo high rises in the background.  There are 7-8 complexes with walling distance to the Marina for the many people who like to be near the.   The New Orleans Lake Front offers an endless compliment of  boating and recreational opportunities. 

“Perched near the near the start of Lakeshore Drive, Russell’s fits right in with the “harbor” vibe of the whole area. Large windows wrap around the entire dining room giving it a nice wide-open feel. The pastel color scheme and aquatic-motif are a bit misleading, because at first glance Russell’s doesn’t really look like a spot that could dish up some mean omelets. But isn’t underestimation a treat nowadays?

The best way I can sum up the feel of Russell’s is that it almost makes you feel healthy, while you’re knoshing on bacon and eggs. (A feat I wish every place could pull off given my dining habits.)” from a recent article on

   The wait staff is always pleasant and on top of there toes. They have plenty of regulars.  Parking is easy.  Its also easy to just take a walk across the street to the Marina or to the Lakefront a couple of blocks away.  Prices are reasonable and there is a good chance you will see someone that you know.
