We wanted to go eat fresh seafood while on vacation at Myrtle Beach without being forced to eat "buffet style" as many of the restaurants are. This place was quaint, very clean, had a large outdoor patio with gas torch lighting and a nice view. We sat outside at around 830pm on a Friday and had the patio largely to... More

We ate here based on previous TripAdvisor reviews. We were not disappointed in the least. I liked the atmosphere. The service was good. The food was quite tasty. Those who had the scallops raved about them. The prices are fair. The portions are generous. They want to make sure you have a good experience which is greatly appreciated.

Just ate at Russell's and I had one of the best seafood dinners I have ever had. I tried the restaurant last year when I was in town but for some reason I ordered fried food. It was good but fried is "fried food." Well today was different. I ordered the fresh catch "Blackened Mahi Mahi". It was one the... More

My husband and I shared a bowl of she crab soup and a fried oyster platter. In our opinion the soup was a bit bland and seemed to have more potatoes than crab. The fried oysters were delicious with a light crispy batter. The hush puppies were sweet and served with honey butter. Our waitress was pleasant and efficient and... More

We found Russell's 3 years ago and it's still our favorite go-to every year we vacation in Litchfield Beach. The food is fantastic. The restaurant has a great small town vibe, and Russell is always there to greet you and ensure you have wonderful service. We love the homemade onion rings, the she-crab soup, and my husband's absolute favorite is... More

Interesting decor, good service, but specialties are mostly fried - but they do have some non-fried items. Recommend you give it a try and make up your own mind.

Russell's food quality is excellent. We were met at the door by Russell and he assured our service was top notch. The conch fritters are the best. Very reasonably priced.

After you get done trying all the heavily advertised restaurants in the Myrtle area, cruise on down to this secluded treetop cozy restaurant that doesn't show up on your average food radar... Really neat little restaurant that presents with a by the seaside charm and even has a fireplace in the dining area. We knew this place was different when... More

A close friend recommended Russell's Seafood. He wasn't wrong. We went early and it wasn't crowded, but when we left, the parking lot was full. My wife had the fried seafood platter and she said that it was delicious. I had one of the day's specials, baked scallops and shrimp. It was also very tasty. Both entrees were about $25... More
