I went there to buy fish. And the owner was racist and very rude. Please don't waste your time going overthere to buy fish.

Freindly and prompt service. All food was excellent. Food is cooked when ordered but delay is nominal. Several trips here and all have been good.

New to Savanah; first time here. Ordered the Fried fish (flounder) meal with cold slaw and hushpuppies. Fish was fresh and delicious. Sides were also excellent. Place is VERY casual and the food takes a while as everything is made fresh.

Had a delicious lunch on our last day in Savannah. Boiled shrimp, hushpuppys and coleslaw and their famous crab chowder. Wish we could have brought some of that chowder home.

RUSSO'S is a jewel in the world of throw back seafood restaurants. My wife and I showed up at 10 minutes until closing and the two ladies just smiled and insisted that we come in. The food here is AS FRESH As YOU'LL FIND ANYWHERE....More

The best seafood in Savannah-crab soup is "to die for!" Atmosphere very laid back. Everything was delicious! We try to go once or twice on our trips to Savannah!

This unassuming little restaurant served the most delicious sandwiches; we had crab cake sandwich, shrimp po'boy, fries, coleslaw and scrumptious crab soup, and all were amazing! Our server was darling and made us feel right at home. We were so glad that we stopped by!

The best seafood in town whether you're buying it from the market or dining in next door. Forget the menu: just tell Charlesetta the Cook what you want and how you want it and she'll put it on the plate-- and at a price far...More

At the recommendation of a friend we visited Russo's for lunch for the first time and the baked fish was the best ever. Convenient to downtown, there is free parking.The service was very friendly. We will definitely be back.

Really friendly staff. Love the casual setting. The crab soup was good but my main dish steamed shrimp was rather tasteless. Maybe I was unlucky :-(

Unfortunately, Russo's is not open for dinner. The close after lunch.

I am unsure whether pets are welcome. You may want to give them a call.
