Top notch! Perfect night, perfect music. Played Proud to be an American and had the whole restaurant standing. John Sehl was a very special host and our food and service fit the night. Can't wait to go back and bring my friends.

Stopped in last Monday for lunch. My husband and I each had the Reuben that was on special and it was to die for! The weather was very very hot but the breeze off the river and shade from the tree made it very enjoyable. The view is stunning and we really enjoyed watching the boats on the river. Probably...

Poor service and mediocre food. Most of my table ordered salads. They come with a very small cup of salad dressing. They charge extra if you want more. Our food was delivered by a waitress with her purse around her neck obviously in a hurry for us to leave. It was 8:45. Three more parties came in after us and... More

Dear Inlet Girl, I am so very sorry that you had such a poor experience here. That is absolutely not how I want my customers to be treated. We do give one dressing with the salads after we were throwing out so many of the second ones that we were putting on the plates. You should not have been charged... More

What a surprise! This place was wonderful for lunch... outside on their deck overlooking the river. Food was delicious and they have the best potato salad bar none! Will go back again. Very convenient for anyone taking the Waccamaw Boat Tour.

Extremely friendly service. Usually a small band or guitar player every night starting at 5:30pm. The food is typical pub food. . . fish sandwiches, tacos, burgers, salads, crab cakes, fried shrimp. Nice to enjoy food and drink on the open/shaded patio overlooking a small marina and boats traveling up and down the river. Wear your bathing suit with a... More

This place is great for a relaxing light lunch. Ate here for the first time today in a group of 4. Given the choice of indoors or out, we chose outside even though it was in the 90s, and I'm so glad we did. As previous reviewers mentioned, the back dining area is built around a huge tree that provides... More

K-Rae's is a hidden gem, off-the-beaten-path, but close-in to Murrells Inlet. It sits alongside the Waccamaw River at the end of Wachesaw Road (which runs off of US-17). It is a very scenic location, right on the water and by a small marina. It seems to cater to a lot of locals... and those that are in-the-know. There is adequate... More

Have been visiting here for years going back to the "Hanna Banana" days. Always a good meal and the location is fabulous! Nothing better than a nice evening meal with live music and a great view of the inland waterway!
