We ate at Russell's on our last night in the Pawleys Island area and were so glad we did! We were greeted as soon as we walked in by the person that turned out to be our server. My only regret is that I forgot...More

We stopped here for dinner and decided to order "non-fried" which was our mistake. We got the steak and shrimp, both were over-cooked. We also tried the fresh fish special that night and unfortunately that fish was also over-cooked. For the price we were disappointed....More

Went here on recommendation of a friend, and will be back. The fish was very fresh. The service was good even when they were busy. Quaint SC beach atmosphere. And the owner was overseeing everything and thanked customers for visiting. He should be proud.

Very cozy place, lots of fishing signs on wall. Shrimp platter was good but It was expensive. Other likes were blackened mahi mahi sandwich, very spicy, and she crab soup. Very expensive meal, but decent food quality did not match price.

Second visit for me. 7 of us, including 2 "locals" who both emphasized that Russell's is the best, freshest seafood around. My images and those on the internet don't do Russell's justice. Made reservations through Facebook and while this is not my choice, the young...More

It is true. I couldn't figure out any other way to put it out there. We are closed for the season. Will reopen around Valentine's Day.
