Sat outside on a beautiful night. Very good waiter who really knew the menu and specials. My recommendation is not to order appetizers. We were filling up before dinner arrived. Everything we ordered was very fresh and delicious. When we are back in town we'll come here again.

I had the popcorn fried shrimp basket (a huge amount of shrimp & fries), and my wife had the very rich & delicious she-crab soup with an appetizer of crab balls as an... More

We decided to try Russell's after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. The restaurant is small, wood paneled intimate seating. There's also outside seating, we ate inside, it was drizzly. The menu was varied, the seafood was great! The seafood platter was lightly breaded and delicious, definitely going back.

Russell's was recommended by a friend who visits Myrtle Beach often and she says, "it's a favorite place for the "locals". The atmosphere is casual and laid-back, with excellent food choices. I ordered the deviled crab and fried shrimp w/ coleslaw and green beans. Delicious hush puppies too! Close by is the "marsh walk" however Russell's is on opposite side... More

Russell's is located at the south end of Murrels Inlet. It sits adjacent to one of the best seafood markets in Myrtle Beach, SC. It just so happens it gets all it's fresh seafood from that same market. Our meals were delightful. I had the fish and chips (great Cod) and my wife had the shrimp. The waiter was superb... More
