We ate dinner last night at Russell's based on other trip advisor reviews. This was our first time visiting the area in twenty years. Had always frequented another popular restaurant in Murrell's but decided to try Russell's. We couldn't have been more pleased! The place is adorable...kind of looks like a tree house. It is cozy, warm and friendly. The hostess opens the door for you and tells you you can choose your own seat. Our waiter, Chris, was excellent. He guided us in our meal choices after listening to what we were looking for and it was just what we wanted! Service was prompt and in fact other wait staff checked on us to if Chris was busy. We ordered the she-crab soup and the seafood sampler (oysters, peel and eat shrimp and clams). It was to die for! The hush puppies with honey butter are incredible! Chris patiently taught us how to open the oysters (thank you!) We each had a glass of wine which was reasonably priced. We had the homemade (by the owner's wife) peanut butter pie for dessert. It was absolutely delectable! Russell, the owner, is very friendly and came over to check on us. We will definitely be back next time in the area and plan to spread the word!
