First Look: 2021 Magical Dining Menu – Russell’s on Lake Ivanhoe

Russell’s on Lake Ivanhoe is a new upscale casual dining restaurant & bar featuring an innovative and fresh menu, all with a great lakeside view and atmosphere.

The restaurant’s theme was inspired by a business man named George Russell who moved to Florida in 1885 and made a living by selling pineapples off of Lake Ivanhoe’s shores.

We were invited to Russell’s to get a first look at their inaugural Magical Dining menu and we thoroughly enjoyed our preview experience from start to finish.  The food, service, and ambiance was impeccable.

The Magical Dining menu includes a delicious three-course meal for only $37 per person, dine-in only, starting this Friday, Aug. 27 through Sunday, Oct. 17, 2021.

What is Magical Dining?

  • 3 courses – Appetizer, Entrée, and Dessert
  • Price: $37 per person, price does not include tax or gratuity.
  • Over 85+ participating restaurants
  • Aug. 27 – Oct. 17, 2021
  • Through Visit Orlando, $1 from each meal served will benefit Pathlight HOME and IDignity, both of which help to combat homelessness in Central Florida.

Here is a first look at Russell’s on Lake Ivanhoe’s Magical Dining menu offerings:


Steak Tartare

A true old world favorite.

Salmon Gravlax

House cured salmon with a dill sour cream sauce.

Wedge Salad

Iceberg lettuce with lardons & gorgonzola dressing.


Beef Tenderloin

Each entree came with a side of creamy mashed potatoes.

Everything we tried was phenomenal but our favorites were the Steak Tartare, Salmon Gravlax, Blackened Wild Salmon, and White Chocolate Bread Pudding.
