The waitress was very attentive and the food was fantastic! Avocado toast was excellent and came with fresh fruit. Extra love for having almond milk on hand!

Cute little place located in Ocean Beach. Service was excellent. Everyone working there was friendly. We had hummus & tzatziki dip and shared the grilled chicken sandwich, both were fabulous.

Rachel's in Ocean Beach for Sunday Brunch is always a good idea. The sweet bakery items and full breakfast are a delicious way to start your day.

We’ve tried a number of restaurants while vacationing on Fire Island but dinner at Rachaels the other night was the best meal we’ve had on the island (and at some Brooklyn restaurants too)!! The service by the owners was lovely with so much pride and...care about the menu and how we were enjoying our food. The stuffed zucchini blossoms from the owners garden and the fried calamari were both delicious starters. Everyone loved their main course especially the seafood and vegetable paella. Very large portion enough for 2 to share. The Flounder Franchise was absolutely the best ever and I ate every bite. My husband had the pork chop with salad on top also delicious and very large. We’ll be back to try the pasta dishes next! Don’t forget to get a cookie from the bakery for desert.More

We came there on a trip to Ocean Beach with hungry stomach. Breakfast at 10:30am, very busy but organized, quick coffee and good service. Eggs very tasty!! Chocolate croissant a must eat!! Came back for lunch at 2pm and it seemed unorganized, maybe change of...crew. Not many people but everything took 3x as long. Mussels so so. Beer was good. Would come back!More

Had to write a review after my wife and I had the Linguine Pescatore and Oreicchetti at a late evening sitting on Aug. 01. The seafood was delicate and cooked perfectly, and the sauce had just the right spicy kick to it. The Oriechetti was...also excellent and full of flavor.More

Best on the island. If any service was subpar which is normal for a post recovery period environment. Food was quality home style American. Overall satisfactory.

The ferry unloaded and a whole hoard of us shuffled over to Rachel's for brunch. The restaurant is tiny, but the tables move quickly. We were a party of 2 and a party of 5 came in right behind us. One of the larger tables...had just cleared out. The host went to check on some other tables and came to us to ask if it was okay for him to give the large table to the party of 5. We said absolutely! We were on vacation and in no rush. He explained that 2 other tables were getting their checks now and he'd be able to seat us shortly. He said if he thought we'd have to wait 20 minutes longer, he wouldn't have even asked - he would have just seated us at the large table. We appreciate that! Our waitresses were very friendly and genuinely happy too. We also appreciated the extra time to peruse their amazing dessert counter! Everything looked phenomenal! We ended up trying their homemade rice pudding, which was delicious and tasted like tiramisu. I had the eggs benedict, which came with curried home fries and fresh fruit. It hit the spot! I felt full, but it wasn't so heavy that I didn't want to walk around all the little shops after brunch. We had a great experience.More

Nice people, very good baked goods and a tasty eggs Benedict. This place strikes me as one of the better places around. Their sweets are also good and they have a great cup of coffee. They also serve dinner and I could tell people who...visit Fire Island regularly like this place a lotMore

Were there for lunch on a Weds- sat outside- 1 other table was occupied- we waited almost 10 minutes for our waitress to give us a menu- had to ask another waitress to have our waitress come back to take our order. Food was so-so...and relatively expensive. We went back for breakfast the next two days(very few places serve breakfast on Ocean Beach) different waitress- better service- food still so-so and expensiveMore

My daughter-in-law, our 2 grandkids and I had a great breakfast here today. Kids loved the chocolate chip pancakes. One adult had the giant SW skillet, and I had the Western OMELET, both of which were really great and really big! The service was also...very good. It wasn’t a cheap breakfast, but it was on par for Fire Island. We’ve been before and we’ll definitely go again.More
