Don't Let Looks Fool You

Excellent food, beautiful view, nice staff. Tried several menu items, the breaded shrimp was to die for. It was so flavorful and extremely lightly breaded, it could hardly be called breaded. Seafood bisque soup a must try!

This was my third time eating at Russell's and it was excellent as usual. Also, we were greeted by "Russell" and the waitress was equally as friendly. As it was early evening and warm we chose to sit out on the deck. Great atmoshere and we got great service.

I must be honest. These were the most over steamed oysters i've ever had! If you do this for a living you should do it right. Would not reccomend.

I have had much better. Very disappointing since I have not visited Murrells Inlet in several years. Boiled shrimp was over cooked and old, grill fish was over seasoned/salty.

I like the crab soup. It was perfect for a rainy day. I haven't had anything else there except for a beer and crab soup. But it was outstandin on a rainy day. The atmosphere the service was also excellent. I'll be back

Across the street from Hot Fish Club not on the water but still an inlet view. Russell the owner makes a personal visit to every dinner to ensure your expectations have been met. This restaurant may not have the waterfront location but what is has is the best sea food in the inlet. How can I say this? I have... More

This is the place to eat if you want delicious seafood and excellent, friendly service. I choose she crab soup, fried shrimp and oyster platter with baked potato and cole slaw.

We expected more, based on the reviews. The service was excellent, but the food was average. The onion rings, cheese potato balls and the chocolate caramel pecan pie were very good, but the seafood was just average. My wife's hamburger steak was good, but had nothing to go with it. No onions, gravy or anything else, except the offer of... More
