Best Outdoor Atmosphere!

We stayed in Surfside during the 2014 4th of July holiday. This was one of the most memorable places we ate during our trip and we still talk about it to this day. Mainly the atmosphere.

We decided to try a spot off the beaten path, K-Rae's is that. Our waiter was very attentive. Food arrived very quickly. Food was very good. We'll be back in June, bringing friends this time

You cannot go wrong making a drive out to the waterway from the beach. The beautiful live oak trees lining the road make it a peaceful relaxing short trip. The marina holds lots of scenic boating fun and the landing is nearly always busy. K-Rae's is very popular with locals and has space for dining indoors and out with great... More

Hello there, Thanks so much for writing such a nice review. Being hidden at the end of the road away from all of the "Marshwalk" excitement, people tend to forget about us. So glad you found us and enjoy it so much and are passing the word. My staff works very hard to provide great food, service and dining experiences... More

This last month this restaurant has started having some AWESOME Events! From wine pairings with food to a Girls Night Out painting pottery! It is reasonable priced, fun and pretty good bar food. Have weekly and holiday specials too plus live music throughout the week. It is a lovely place during warm weather sitting outside with the river view too!... More

The food is always great every time I visit Krae's and the atmosphere is simply amazing. Casual and fun, with a gorgeous view of the Intercoastal waterway. The perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

We are locals and never miss an opportunity to visit K-Rae's when we are in the mood for pub food and camaraderie! The food is excellent, the bar chock full of everything you could possibly want, and the staff is one of the most personable on the Strand.

We visit K-Rae’s for the great food and greater people. The chef prepares soups that are just outstanding. We’ve had Taco, Cheeseburger, Pulled Pork, and Minestrone just to name a few. They are delicious. The chili which K-Rae swears is her recipe will stand tall among the many available in Murrells Inlet. The lunches and dinners are all freshly prepared... More

K-Rae's is the perfect little local hangout. The food is good and the atmosphere is outstanding. It's nice to sit outside and watch the boats in the river. The service is friendly and the Bloody Mary's are awesome at breakfast. Nice spot for a drink at the end of the day as well.
