I am not going to bash this restaurant, perhaps it was just what I ordered. I had the shrimp basket and I guess I expected it to taste different from low price restaurants. It wasn't. However my husband had another item and he enjoyed his. The restaurant tables are very close together and the noise level is high. It is... More

Party of 17, had to wait about 35 minutes to get tables set up. Service thereafter was great, as was the food. I had the flounder & it was excellent.

The food was excellent from the appetizers to dessert!! You must try the fish dip. Russell himself visited every table. We have been visiting this area since 1978 and don't know how we missed it. Will be a stop on every future visit.

This restaurant is very small and depending on when you go, the wait can be long and there was nowhere to sit to wait. Not being a seafood lover, I got the ribeye with their famous cheesy potato balls. The steak was perfectly cooked and very flavorful. The potatoes were delicious. Our waiter, Ricky, was very attentive and the owner... More

We come back to this place every year.....great food and service with "down home" friendliness. One of those places that everyone seems so glad to be there.

Was curious as to whether it was better than the Inlet Crab and Seafood restaurant. It is, and the service and ambiance is better. Go.

Been visiting the Murrells Inlet area for years and for some reason just never made it to Russell's before last week. BIg mistake on our part. Food and service were both great!! Our short wait at the bar was a fun time and our server, Ricky, was attentive as soon as we were seated. Believe they are only open weekends... More

Russell's is where the locals go for seafood. Great food. Wonderful ambiance. No better service anywhere. There's even a 90% chance that Russell himself will stop be your table to share a kind word and insure your visit is perfect. Just a short drive past the "Mega-tourist" restaurants will be rewarded with the best meal you will have on the... More

Been to Russell's at least a dozen times but this is my first review. The first thing that comes to mind is that this is a very small place compared to the big restaurants in the inlet. Having said that, the thing we like about this place is that Russell is always there to make sure your meal is great.... More
