The Shrimp & Corn Chowder is best item on menu! It has a little kick and is creamy and full of shrimp & corn. The grilled shrimp tacos really hit the spot. What ever the sauce was on them really added to the taco.

A little off of the main hwy but that makes it peaceful. A respectful offering of various food types and some specials each day make it a place to come back to again and again for different choices. Good food & pleasant service. Few draft beer options but a fair selection of bottled and canned. Shrimp basket was good. Atmosphere... More

Good Morning John, Thanks so much for such an eloquently written and positive review. I agree, we don't have enough draft beer choices, I've been trying for two years to figure out a way to fit a draft beer cooler or system to allow for them but unfortunately with such a small space it is proving difficult. We do love... More

K-Rae's is our first stop after arriving from a long day's travel to Murrells Inlet. The fish tacos are outstanding, although the shrimp basket and burger are strong contenders. We love the laid-back and friendly atmosphere, indoor/outdoor dining option and gorgeous setting on the Waccamaw River - one of the best-kept dining secrets in SC.

I saw K-Rae's mentioned on Trip Advisor and so when we found ourselves hungry and in Murrell's Inlet, we decided to go there. The restaurant is actually at the Marina, which was a nice surprise. There is a small seating area inside, but that is not what people come here for...outside is a big deck, with a beautiful sun-sheltering tree... More

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

I previously responded to this review before I had a chance to speak with all parties involved. After doing so, here is my response. Yes, we only put one dressing on the salads due to the many, many dressings we throw away when people ask for them and don't use. You are more than welcome to ask for more dressing... More
