There are so many restaurants on the Nautical Mile...choosing where to dine requires some real decision making. If you desire a menu that offers a variety of choices, Rachel's is the place! The menu selections include an abundance of seafood specialties...from tasty appetizers to delicious entrees. You can choose to have your seafood dish prepared four different ways...all of which are very good. The pasta dishes are huge (I recommend the Shrimp and Bowtie Ala Vodka) and scrumptious. From lobster to mussels to fish, chicken and steak...they can accommodate most palates. There is a nice view through the gigantic windows and although the seating is a bit tight (they made use of every inch of the place), it's not cramped. I recommend Rachel's. It is a really good restaurant. My favorite on the Nautical Mile. Reviewed 4/25/2016

Been here a couple of times originally for brunch and it is wonderful. Seafood chowder soup and gumbo soup unbelievable...my bf had the twin lobster tails stuffed and he said it was unbelievable. I had the seafood risotto and I loved it...can't wait to go back for the mardi gras menu...what a great place! 2/3/2016
“Best on Nautical Mile”
You can come for the food, the service, the view, or just to have a good time with a date, mate, or group and you will have come to the right place. Well prepared seafood dishes and great cocktails. Reviewed December 15, 2015
“Great food, great view!”
In my opinion, Rachel's is one of the best restaurants on the Freeport Nautical Mile. We've eaten there many times and today we were there for lunch. Great children's menu for our 10 year old. We chose to sit inside, but outside seating is also available. My husband loved the seafood chowder, and he is usually so picky about that. The grilled chicken sandwich with roasted red peppers and fresh mozzarella cheese was delicious. See attached picture. I opted for the salad instead of french fries and the salad was delicious with fresh strawberries. I stole some of my daughter's fries and they were so good...crispy and seasoned on the outside and creamy on the inside. Really nice size portions. The views from the restaurant are great.
"Great food, huge portions"
Four of us went to Rachel's for dinner tonight . The men ordered the seafood with pasta (one with red sauce, one with white). They were excellent and tremendous! I had the chili tuna - very good. My friend ordered the broiled seafood platter, and she enjoyed it. Rachel's chowder and the lobster bisque were excellent too.
Great location and delicious food. Located right on the "Nautical Mile." We went for Sunday brunch and were not disappointed. They don't have a separate menu, but rather the normal menu with a few modifications to turn it into brunch. I had the shrimp and spinach omelet which came out piping hot and perfectly cooked. The mimosa was well made as were the treats in the small basket of baked goods. Service was friendly and prices as expected. We arrived around noon and by the time we left, there was quite a crowd waiting to get in.
“Pleasant al fresco lunch”
This restaurant is one of the many on the stretch of Woodcleft Avenue by the local canals known as the Nautical Mile. We chose it for lunch based on it's interesting website. We secured an outdoor table with a view of the canal. My wife had a spinach salad. I had their grilled Southwestern Caesar Salad with a shrimp add-on. No complaints with either order. My Caesar feature grilled romaine and a spicy riff on Caesar dressing. The drinks were pleasant and service was prompt and friendly. Just a nice afternoon. I suspect that on weekends the crowding is much heavier and parking more difficult, but for our late mid week lunch, it was just fine.
