Still just as good as ever

Ive been eating at Russells for years and find that the food is always good. The fried scallops are the best ive had anywhere. Service is always friendly and its nice to see an owner care so much about making sure his food is consistent. Many places i used to dine at in myrtle beach now seem to... read more

Nothing over the top about this relaxing seafood restaurant. Decent food, and the outside deck is a nice place to eat when the sun goes down.

My friend and i had dinner here. I ordered the crab meat stuffed whole flounder. She ordered one of the specials, soft shell crabs. Both dinners were delicious as were the fried cheesy potatoes, hush puppies and slaw. They have seating both inside and out. Its a relaxed atmosphere. I would recommend Russell's!

Very Impressive! I chose a salad with bleu cheese and this was the first restaurant ever to bring a cup of house made dressing and another cup of actual bleu cheese crumbles. For my entrée, I chose the Fantail Shrimp and Scallops with a baked potato.. Wow! Scallops and shrimp were cooked to perfection over white whine and mushrooms. Friendly... More

I have been coming to this restaurant for 23 years and is the best place to eat on the Grand Strand! Russell is usually on hand to greet his customers and Karen close by. They want your experience to always be the best and I like them as much as the food! Once you go you will become a regular,... More

We came in with high expectations. Food was great-eat as many hush puppies as you can! The service & friendliness were beyond wonderful! Most of us had specials with different catches of the day. The yellowfin tuna was delicious both marinated and not. Even our non-seafood eaters were happy. You can tell this is a family run operation who care... More

Highlights...we were seated immediately outside on a Friday night at 7pm, the onion rings were TASTY; the seafood platter was lightly breaded and seemed fresh; staff was very gracious including the owner inquiring about our dinners. Hush puppies were not hot and I would have done better by buying my own grouper down the road and preparing it at home.... More

Have been here in the past and have been pleased. The best part of this meal was the waiter. All of the meals were just so-so. None of the four of us felt any of our meals was anything special and since this place was my recomendation to the group I was especially disappointed. Sorry I will not be back

Thank you for recommending our restaurant to your friends. Truly sorry you were not pleased with your meals, if you would have let us know we could have fixed it somehow. I don't believe we have gone downhill but we have had some staff changes and we have been so busy it has been a little difficult trying to work... More

Went here based on ratings. It's obviously quite popular, as it was packed on a Wednesday. We had early bird. The staff is wonderful, friendly, courteous. Food was a big disappointment. Had flounder and shrimp. It was swimming in butter and very bland. The other dish was flounder and deviled crab. It was non descript. Not sure if we didn't... More

Chose Russell's out of a group of restaurants that were recommended to us. We went for the early bird special which helped to save money :) Everyone was very friendly from the time the door opened until we left. Our waiter was Parker and he was quick, attentive, and nice! He was also quiet...they have one male waiter there that... More
