This was our second visit to Russells Seafood Grill and once again, we left totally satisfied! The tuna steak & Hog head fish was awesome, really loved the cheesey potatoes balls as well. Certainly will return on our next vacation.

My coworkers and I came here for dinner while in town. We liked it and would come back. I had a shrimp basket, a coworker had a deviled crab basket, and another coworker got shrimp and scallops.
