C D M, Sorry your HIGH hopes were not fulfilled at Russell's. I am wondering if you mentioned your problems with your server. Since your server was above average I'm guessing you did not. Summertime is very busy and things go wrong from time to...More

Excellent is the best word I can use to describe Russell's Seafood. The service was very good & the food was great. We had seafood platters & she-crab soup (wow) I would recommend Russell's Seafood 100% to anyone.

It is always nice to visit a restaurant where the owner goes around to visit with the customers and making sure everything is good. The view is nice and check out all of the memorabilia hanging in the restaurant.
