It is so sad to see you close. I have brought many folks for really good food and the courtyard is so pleasant. We all hope you find a new place to reopen. Thanks for many memories.

I believe this place has closed. Don't know if anyone else has taken it over. Waterfront dining on the marina was nice except for the music being too loud.

We arent closed yet.. we will be closing end if December. Apologies if you thought the music was too loud. I always tried to be sure it was dinner conversation volume. More

I have visited K-Raes twice this year. Both times thoroughly enjoyed a pint and lunch. The setting is true South Carolina with Irish tweeks. Food is southern costal bar variety, the she crab chowder was great. Sweet. Sad part is, it's slated to close.

A really neat place on the inland waterway that has great sandwiches and drinks. Unfortunately the marina has been sold and the restaurant will not have its lease renewed.

Had a great meal on the water. Try the tuna tacos. You won't be disappointed. Love entertainment too.

Went for the Sunday brunch this past weekend. We were near the end of the brunch but everyone was very nice. Our waitress explained all to us and kept us in drinks. The location is great with a good look at the waterway. Will go back often

This is a really neat location on the intercostal/Waccamaw River. The view is better than the food. Our party had shrimp cocktail (small and grilled); the wings were anemic; the Reuben was very good; and the wedge salad was also very good, however a little light on the blue cheese and when we asked for more they tried to charge...

Good Morning Barb, I'm sorry you weren't happy with your food items during your visit. The shrimp cocktail are actually not grilled, they are steamed in an old bay base, chilled and served when ordered. I do know that we sold an inordinate amount in the last few weekends and ran out. They may have grilled them that one time... More

Possibly one of the rudest hostess I have run into. Perhaps she was having a bad day but made no attempt to be polite. We had paid to dock boat, left anyway, won't be back

Good Morning, I'm sorry you feel your hostess was rude. It was extremely busy and we were very short handed so maybe she was simply trying to seat everyone quickly and wasn't as patient with you as she could have been. I'm not sure if you were in the right spot as well as they do not charge to dock... More
