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

We are on vacation in Surfside, a couple of our friends recommended Russell's knowing we are seafood lovers. I can honestly say this was great, we will make this a regular stop every visit. The bartender Suebob was very welcoming, friendly and entertaining. She made our wait very enjoyable. The entire atmosphere was warm, charming and very, very friendly. The... More

It was a mistake to eat at Russells Seafood in Murrells Inlet. I ordered Fried Flounder and Pop Corn Shrimp, from the Early Bird Menu. The hush puppies were good and so was the baked potato and cole slaw. The Flounder did not taste like flounder. It had a very strong fishy taste (Not Fresh). The shrimp was greasy. My... More

Vicki, if you were so unhappy with your meal, why didn't you tell your server? Both of your problems could have been fixed in house, instead you go to TA. I talked to your server and she asked you if everything was ok and you said yes, as she was putting your friends meal in a to go box to... More

Seriously - I paid $24.00 for a "Denny's Steak and Eggs" - New York Strip. It was thin and WAY over priced!!! The baked potato was the best part of my dinner.

I am sorry you did not like your steak. We serve a nice 12 oz. cut of N.Y. Strip. If you would have told someone that you were unhappy with it while you were there we could have fixed it. You calling my food comparable to Denny's is just nasty and mean. Please come by and I will give you... More
