So be prepared for stuck up staff (Jen) that will reject any fault and cant take any complaints without making you feel horrible. The 50 plus years and 3 generations of family purchasing specialty fish from Russ and Daughters ends now!

This place gets a lot of hype, and the lox is really very good. However, a bagel sandwich with normal lox will easily cost you $12 depending on some of your fixins...

Too pricey for daily consumption, but a nice treat on occassion.

We always pass by Russ & Daughters on our way to and from Katz's for pastrami and corned beef sandwiches (yum!) but never stopped in until we saw them featured on a television program. It all looked so clean and the proprietors took such pride in the thin slicing of the smoked salmon that we made a special effort to go the next day. It is a scrupulously clean store, beautifully stocked with all the fresh delicacies for which Jewish cooking is famous.
Although we only purchased a quarter pound of smoked salmon (which was FABULOUS), they gave us samples of a few different kinds and were very friendly, funny and informative. One of the owners was there and shared stories about his family with us. The other customers were very helpful and entertaining, as well.
We are putting it on our regular Houston Street routine.

I love Russ and Daughters. It has great fish and it feels like you've stepped back in time. The people are nice but lines are really long on weekends. The whitefish salad is the best I've ever had.

You will be more than happy to line up for the amazing smoked fish and fresh cream cheeses, nuts and dried fruits at this institution of a Jewish deli. Russ and Daughters has been here forever and they still serve up the best quality of food. Always friendly and they make you feel right at home as soon as you walk in.

I come here to get my lox and cream cheese. The fish is always super fresh and their cream cheese is delicious. They have different varieties of cream cheese, caviar, baked goods....The staff is super nice, even on the busiest weekends.

Russ & Daughters is a historic Lower East side tradition that is worth the visit. With a fantastic selection of fish, it is truly a place to see and smell (if you like fish of course). This place does have significant other food selection but this is the place for the kosher seafood lover in all of us.

Classic and historic NY deli doesn't offer much except for high prices. It's been a tourist attraction, but has disintegrated of late. Prices very high.

Delectably silken lox, fluffy cream cheese, robust pickles and olives. A proud Lower East Side legacy.
