Good food long wait

The first thing you need to know is that this place is very small. You will wait an hour for a table even especially if there are some large groups ahead of you. Food was good. Service was good. The AC must have been down. It was warm inside by the back wall away from the door.

Great food, Great people! Found this place by mistake. We were there for Bike Week and the GPS had us going in circles and we just decided to stop in. Glad we did!

We went here with friends. We were kind of crowded with 8 of us. The seafood was very good, but I wasn't impressed enough to return.

Murrells Inlet is known as "the seafood capital of South Carolina" and Russell's is one of the last of the restaurants that harken back to the day when that reputation developed. The seafood is fresh, mostly caught locally (and recently) and prepared to order. He usually has one fresh fish, something like triggerfish, hogfish or wahoo on the daily menu... More

Large portions of fresh fish. The stuffed flounder, grilled grouper and oyster stew were our favorites. Short wait in a busy tourist season. Hidden gem...no more!

Casual and relaxing. The deck seating is first come first serve so if you're not in a rush have a drink and wait. The hush puppies are delicious and would recommend any of the day's specials.

The food was good, the portions plentiful and our waiter was very knowledgable and funny! My only complaint is the kids meals were $8.25. That is extremely expensive for a hambuger, chicken strips or Mac and cheese. (the cost doesn't even include a drink). My little ones didn't finish their food, like most littles, so we wasted almost $20 on... More

We (9 of us) dined later in the evening and our waitress was very nice and happy, after a long busy day! The meal came out quickly and was hot. I was not as impressed as so many people seem to be. I expected an incredible and unforgettable experience. IT was just fine, don't get me wrong, but I did... More

We always go to Russell's when we visit Murrells Inlet, and yes, Russell is usually there to greet you. We ate there twice this trip. We prefer to sit outside which is always shaded in the evenings. Food is always good and prices are reasonable for the area.

This place was great. It's a small restaurant but has a quick turnover and great food. My sister and I had their seafood platter. The waitress was very informative about the food, like the oysters are imported and the deviled crab is not made there. The rest of the food was from local fisherman.
