They had Scallops with mushrooms and wine sauce on their specials and I had it with Baked Potato. They were cooked just right and it was Delicious.

Excellent dinner and great service in a unique dining environment. Six people dining and all dinners were prepared to perfection.

Food was undercooked. Most of the flounder wasn't edible. Charge $2 for a glass of water?? That wasn't on the menu!! Hushpuppies were just fried cornbread. Nothing about this place really warranted the price tag. Two average portions and the total was almost $70. Outrageous.

We visit Russell's every vacation, often multiple times. The food is always fantastic, the service is awesome and we always leave satisfied. The oysters are our favorite, but everything else we've had there is top-notch.

I can't speak more highly of this place. Russell greeted us at the door and both he and his staff provided excellent customer service. I appreciate when an owner makes you feel like family. The food was equally wonderful. Like I said, the oyster stew...More

The wife wanted to try Russell's from a good review she saw in the paper. The shrimp and crab dip was tasty, but our waiter presented a basket of saltines and captain crackers in the wrappers for dipping. This cheapened the meal for me. We...More

We are solid Russel fans. We've been eating here for seven years. I always go for my birthday not to mention the other times in between. I visited last a Friday for my birthday. Wait was minimal. Our waitress was one I've never seen before....More

Thank you for your continued business! Happy Birthday by the way. Sorry about the flounder, I see there is another review about flounder also. I will definitely check with Herman to see what is up. Flounder went up $3 a pound this season so I...More
