We went to Russell's Seafood tonight (8/29/15) and had a very enjoyable evening. The hostess, Erica, was friendly and took our name and told us there would be a slight wait. While we waited, we went to the bar where Sue was ready to take our drink order and as always was friendly and funny. Our server, Ricky, was terrific,... More

This seafood spot is located further south on the main inlet strip. We found it a little difficult to find the first time we went. The seafood is very good and very fresh. The owner is always around checking on your dining experience. Relatives from New England we gave brought there raved about the scallops and a year later still... More

On vacation with my mom in Myrtle Beach, SC and she mentioned going to this place. We had already been to one All-You-Can-Eat seafood buffet earlier in the week. It was a bit of a drive but we went for an early dinner. The place looked like a smaller, older restaurant but let me tell you, the food was top... More

From being met at the door by the owners, to being seen out and welcomed to return soon, this was a rewarding experience. On vacation in Myrtle Beach, my daughter and I decided to make the trek to Russell's for dinner ~ We were not disappointed !! I asked the owner's wife for suggestions and my daughter and I both...

Granted, it was Friday night and all the restaurants were packed, but still if you can't put out decent food--don't bother. Our waitress seemed like she'd had a little something extra just to take the edge off and miscalculated. I'm still not sure my Oster's Rockefeller had an Oster in the shell, but they certainly had enough cheese whiz or... More

I am really sorry for your disappoing experience. If by Oster Rockefeller, you mean Our Oyster Rockefeller has No cheese of any kind on it. We prepare ours with hollandaise with bacon and of course spinach. Maybe you were at another restaurant because I checked all three waitresses tickets for that night to find out who waited on you and... More

Russell's is my go-to, favorite seafood in the area. Period. Seafood is fresh. Frying is piping hot, crispy but not greasy. The She-Crab soup. Get it. You're welcome in advance.

A locally owned restaurant. Russell greets all his customers and goes overboard to accommodate them. The restaurant is relativelt small but Russell wants it that way to make sure evertything is operating properly. The staff is VERY accomdating and will go out of theor way to make sure you are taken care of. And the food is very good

Russell's is an absolute MUST! All of the seafood is fresh and just tastes amazing. Quick service and fresh food... What more can you ask for? Russell is always there to meet you at the door. The outside patio is perfection. It gives you a great very of the marsh without having to be eaten up by all the bugs... More

One of the places I look forward to visiting every year. Surf and turf is phenomenal and the service is even better. Superb!
