Went here based on the TripAdvisor reviews and loved the personal touch of Russell, along with good food and service. We got Erika by pure luck and she was as good as advertised. She suggested the Hog fish, so I tried it. It was good and a HUGE serving. The cheese potato balls were awesome, and loved the hush puppies... More

From the decor & setting to the delicious food & great service, Russell's Seafood Grill was a dining delight. The she crab soup was superior, the hush puppies were some of the best ever. Our server, Erika, was knowledgable & helpful in explaining the entree options and side dishes. The cheese potatoes were amazing, the salad and dressing delicious, the... More

Loved the setting. We ate in the bar and the bartender was so helpful and attentive . Russell the owner stopped by to thank us for coming . Now the food, my husband had stuffed flounder which was wonderful nicely prepared . I had scallops and shrimp in wine and butter. Not bad, but rubbery. I would go again and... More

I am so glad that we took another couple to Russell's for dinner. The decor fits the beach house style. Very comfortable. Russell met us at the top of the steps and ushered us in. We waited 5 minutes for a table in the bar. They do not take reservations but their efficiency makes up for that. I had broiled... More

Go here if you want local fish house food with local fish house flair. This is not fine dining, so don't look for that - look for well-seasoned fried local catch and you will be fine. They are not located on the water, but across the road. Perhaps it is for this reason that the staff is wonderfully polite, friendly... More

Thank you for this review, you sum us up pretty well, except for the 3 stars(IMO). We are old school Murrells Inlet, not fancy just fresh. Vinyl tablecloths and all! Under advise from our reviewers we started seasoning our batter, sorry you didn't taste yours first. Danged if you do, danged if you don't kinda thing. Time and time again... More

Food is outstanding; the best in Murrell's Inlet which means it's some of the best anywhere. Great bar. Service is outstanding. They win the "Best Hushpuppy" award hands down. Be prepared for a wait at dinner time, but it's worth it.

I am officially a local here now after 25 years! I have been coming to Myrtle Beach for about 40 years. Always have thought Murrells Inlet is the only place to eat seafood. I am still amazed at the people who have always vacationed in a Myrtle and still don't know about the "Inlet". If you want a fabulous meal... More
