We discovered Russell's a few years ago while checking out Tripadvisor - saw rave reviews so we thought we'd give it a try. We are so glad we did! This is our favorite spot to eat when we vacation in Myrtle Beach! The place is small and has alot of character! The prices are very reasonable - most of all - the food is DELICIOUS! Our favorite is the grilled Mahi Mahi with the potatoe balls and cole slaw and who can forget the hush puppies with warm honey butter? Like I said - SO GOOOOOOD! Stop by and check out this place - you will be so glad you did. We will see you again in October!

We arrived just as they were setting up for dinner. The service was outstanding and personal. The shrimp that I had were local, lightly breaded and just right. My wife's scallops while a little bland were good but not great, it is only fair to say that our waiter Will told us he thought they were better fried. We both enjoyed the experience and will go back. Russell's is from a time before the beaches in America were all fast food and glitz. A truly authentic beach place with great food and service. Thanks Will.

This is a great seafood restaurant. Russell is on-site and mingles with diners throughout the night. The soft shelled crab is beyond wonderful! Catch of the day is fresh off the dock. Bar is super friendly. Occasionally there is music. Don't miss it on a trip to the SC coast!

My wife and I returned to Russell's this year after a visit a year ago when she had the most awesome grilled hog snapper dish. Our plan was for both of us to have the grilled hog snapper this time, but we were informed by the waitress that they had not been able to get any hog snapper since Labor Day. Bummer! Don't you hate it when you have your taste buds primed for one thing and then have to order another?!

My alternative choice was the soft shell crab special, and I got three very tasty and large soft shell crabs that made a very fine evening meal. My wife got the shrimp and fish special which was definitely above average for the area.

The weather was absolutely perfect for us to sit our on the deck and enjoy the water view across the road. We were the first ones to select outdoor, but by the time we left, the place was packed and buzzing!

Our waitress was very attentive and probably one of the friendliest we had on this past week's vacation to SC.
