We found this restaurant after a recommendation a local golf course in Murrells Inlet. It's off the beaten path and part of a Marina on the Intercoastal Waterway in the low country. I had the lobster roll and my husband had a salad topped with grouper. The outside seating is right next to the waterway under a huge willow. You... More

We ate here this summer with family who love this place, & I can see why. Eating at sunset on the outdoor deck, under that big tree, right on the river is just one of those things you don't forget. The selection of vegetarian items was pretty good, as was the beer selection, and everything was delicious. Our server was... More

This was our first visit & it won't be our last. We sat outside which is right on the water. It was so peaceful & the view is great. We ordered the fried oyster & jumbo shrimp baskets. They were both excellent & large portions. Great service as well !

We love K-rae's Waterway. Their oversized deck is a great venue for a gathering with friends or a quiet lunch with someone special. There's a giant tree in the middle of the deck which supplies wonderful shade. The view of the inland waterway can't be beat. You'll see big boats, small boats, kayakers, airboats, waverunners, the whole gamut. The food... More

We are new to the area but have dined out MANY times in the 3 weeks we have been here. We have tried all the "trendy" spots on the Marsh Walk but keep coming back to K-Rae's. First...they have a great view. You will see from kayaks to yachts pulling into the marina and the sunsets are beautiful! There is... More

Went there for a get together with friends. We requested a table for six. Although there were tables available, they refused to seat the four of us who were there until the other two showed up. People were seated in front of us until there were no tables left. Didn't stay and won't be back.

I'm sorry you are upset about our seating policy. We hear on a DAILY basis, "the rest of our party is right behind us, in the parking lot, on the way" and most often the rest of the party does not arrive for another hour, sometimes 2 hours. Many times it is a party of 2 "waiting" for a party... More

We have enjoyed this restaurant every time we visit Murrell's Inlet. We enjoyed the former owner, when it was called Hanna Bananas Sunshine Cabana, as he was always welcoming and friendly. The atmosphere is better than the food, but the food is consistently good. I had the crab bite appetizer and a house salad. The salad was fresh and dressing... More

You can beat the view. Drinks are always ice cold and the food is hearty. Entertainment is usually always on.

This restaurant has a wonderful, and I mean wonderful view, of the river. It's a happening scene that it is budget friendly. The drinks are well made and the service is very friendly and welcoming.

Stopped into K-Rae's for their Sunday brunch before heading out for a wonderful boat ride with friends. I had read some negative reviews, but our experience was outstanding. Great food, wonderful views, friendly staff and incredible Bloody Mary's started our day. After our cruise up the Waccamaw river and back we topped off with some cold beer before calling it... More
