It can be said that one usually eats well in any number of restaurants in Murrells Inlet SC but for those of you who seek a truly superb meal as well as an experience in the local flavor of this part of the low country SC you must go to Russells Seafood Grill & Raw Bar. Russell himself will always... More

Don't miss this place! You will be warmly greeted at the door, usually by Russell, who will probably remember your name next year when you come back. We have been stopping here for years during our stay each year at the Osprey Marina. The sea food is excellent, the atmosphere unique, and the service outstanding. Don't leave here without talking...

Cute little place, friendly staff, food was soooo good. Hush puppies were a "sweet" surprise (we were used to savory) crispy and light. We easily plowed through the two baskets we were allotted. Food was fresh and well prepared. The weather outside the day of our visit was cold and windy. But, a fire had been set in the fireplace.... More

Russell is always on hand for a friendly welcome and chat. He is very serious about giving the freshest and tasty seafood possible and his staff is always on the ball. We are headed to the beach this weekend and will definitely be visiting Russell's. Just good folks serving up good food in a friendly place.

The service was very slow. The seafood dinner was not up to Murrells Inlet standards. The restaurant was crowded and loud.

We have been coming to Murrells Inlet for over 15 years now, but had never tried Russell's. We tried it this time with family and really enjoyed ourselves. The atmosphere is fun, the wait staff and owner could not have been more welcoming, and the food was very good. Had a nice feel about it. I would go back again... More

Funny story.... a friend of ours has been wanting to go here for three years now. Due to different reasons, she hasn't. So we decided to go this trip. She was soooo excited. When we pulled into the parking lot she let out a big sigh. What's wrong? She thought that the actual restaurant was a tree house. Instead... it... More

My wife and I stopped here based upon Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Instead of bread, they begin the meal with fritters. Be careful, because once you start in on the fritters, you may be too full to actually order a meal. Lucky for us, we ordered a meal anyway. I ordered the seafood platter, with fish, oysters,...

Stopped in for happy hour with a business associate and enjoyed several items from their menu. Bartender is always friendly as is the rest of the staff.
