Russell's won't disappoint!

We always will go down to Russell's when we're in town! The food is fresh, hot, delicious! If you want fried seafood, Russell's is the place to go! It's the best!! My favorite is the fried flounder and popcorn shrimp! Unlike any other! It's a class all it's own! Forget those pricey mega-bars... read more

We ate here because of the good reviews. Restaurant appearance, staff greeting, and rapid service caused us to feel like we had made the right choice. We were slightly disappointed with just average seafood. Salad with blue cheese dressing & hushpuppies were good. Shrimp overcooked & dry, stuffed crab was apparently not freshly prepared, oysters & fish good, scallops average.... More

I'm not sure how this place got a #2 rating on Trip Advisor. The place was crowded and the food was way overpriced. The She Crab Soup that we split so that we could taste it was pretty good but it went down from there. i My wife order the Grouper Imperial. The grouper was cooked appropriately but the sauce...

Who knew there are South Carolina oyster? Great choice along with conch fritters. Warm hush puppies & perfect blackened grouper plus ice cold beer rounded out a wonderful meal with a view of the beach. Attentive pleasant service made it perfect after a long day.

As a local I have to sat Russells is one of the best, most authentic seafood restaurants in the Low Country. Everything is fresh and made to order. The seafood is perfect wether it's grilled, broiled or fried. The service is awesome and the atmosphere is inviting. They have a nice deck /patio area and the inside was literally someones... More

I was on vacation during one of their coldest periods. We arrived to a warm room and friendly greeting. Drinks and food are fairly priced. The seafood (oysters are some of the best I've ever eaten) I had a mixed seafood plate and loved every bite.

We four all enjoyed our dinners; it was what we expected at a coastal seafood restaurant. This was a busy place that appeared to have their act together for serving the standards plus the catch of the day. I had a sense that there was a pride there and that the owners/managers were on hand and involved. Highly recommended.
