Over the past 15 years, I’ve dined at Raes Coastal Café 40+ times, and, though I could put it more eloquently, I have this to say: It doesn’t suck, Mon! The attentive service, drool-worthy apps and entrees and the good company of the gracious, gregarious owner Walter Clay… This is my restaurant of choice for business, for buddies, for after-workout-grab-it-to-go...

We went to lunch at Rae's Coastal Café to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary because we always enjoy their food. We got there early and snagged a table by the creek. The Bob Marley Jamaican interior was a fun way to have a touch of Caribbean without actually having to take a trip. Molly came over to our table to... More

If you are not a regular you definitely need your GPS. Rae's is tucked away and hard to find the first time. I had the jerked chicken wings and a salad off the appetizer menu, they were GREAT. Others in the group had shrimp & grits, coconut shrimp and a steak dinner. I do believe the martinis stole the show.... More

You'll need to load the address in the GPS to find this place but it is worth it. They went for a Caribbean look both exterior and interior and do it well. The service was prompt and friendly, guess I timed it well. The Chicken Jerk dinner was delicious and it ran me $13. There are dishes that run quite... More

I've heard that this place has gone down from what it used to be, and I'd have to assume that's true. We were there on an Sunday evening, so I give them some slack because I know what it's like to work in the biz on Sundays. Still, for the price ($29 for the fried grouper entree, $12 for a... More

We were seated first when the restaurant opened for lunch. They asked us immediately for our lunch order but it was our first visit so I asked for additional time. Took them quite a while to return for the order. The first meal came 50 minutes later and the other four meals came after we had been there an hour.... More

We loved Rae's Coastal Cafe fifteen years ago when we lived in Augusta. We visited this past weekend and couldn't wait to see if Rae's was as good as we remembered. We were delighted to find the food as good as we remembered, the atmosphere as festive, and the service as friendly. Highly recommend!!

Took my parents here to celebrate Father's day as well as their anniversary. Of course we expected that they would be busy, and we were prepared for that. Unfortunately, the restaurant, and specifically our server, didn't seem to be prepared for business. The server could not answer questions about the menu without leaving to ask someone else. He also seemed... More

In town for a college visit and followed a Tripadvisor review to Rae's. As others have said, it's more than a bit tricky to find and probably would not have made it without GPS (even then it was confusing). Nevertheless, well worth the effort. Fun, casual atmosphere with very good food. We had the jerk chicken wings to start and... More

While in town an associate gave us a recommendation to check out Rae' s. Well after a little challenge following the GPS through the local neighborhood we found the parking lot full - a clue that it is a well liked establishment. We ordered a crab cake and the salmon. Knowing that ordering a crab cake outside of Maryland can... More
