Nice place to eat

After tour boat ride we had lunch at K-Rae's. The food was good and reasonably priced. Seating is both in and outside of restaurant. Great river views. All in party of six enjoyed their meals. Fish & Chips, Burgers, Oyster ' Po-Boy ' and Ruben sandwiches are fine. Pleasant place to eat and have a... read more

K-Raes is a hidden treasure on the intercoastal waterway. The outdoor deck affords gorgeous views of the waterway and sunsets. The food is consistently fresh and good including a chldren's menu, deserts and great bar. Excellent place for multi-generational groups. I've enjoyed fish sandwiches, shrimp, salads, desserts. A frequent go to place.

We live nearby and get to this place about once a month or so. When you go, try to get outdoor seating as the view of the Waccamaw River is amazing. The outdoor seating is under live oak trees for a real Southern Atmosphere. Food is Southern Modern and service is top notch. Drinks can be a bit pricy, but... More

K-Rae's is one of our favorite local spots. Before we moved here I would dream about sitting on their deck, drinking a nice glass of wine, listening to live music and watching the sunset. Now I can do it often! The wait staff is great, including K-Rae herself. The food is good, they could use more entree salads and healthy... More

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. This place was perfect for us! Outdoor seating on the marina under big shade trees! Live music playing! Sunset! Wow, just perfect! We will... More

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
