Long Island has a long history of great seafood, so the competition in this category is as fierce as wrestling with an angry swordfish on the line. As one of the crown jewels of Freeport’s Nautical Mile, Rachel’s Waterside Grill is a great catch—hook, line and sinker. Whether pan-seared, blackened or grilled, the seafood at Rachel’s is as fresh and tasty as it gets. Temporarily closed due to Superstorm Sandy damage, but will re-open in March.
