Rachel's Waterside Grill's delicacies satisfy diners with locally harvested ingredients. Dinner entrees, preceded by a choice of soup or salad, include such selections as japanese chili-rubbed ahi tuna ($25.95) and the one-pound romanian skirt steak ($24.95), accompanied by garlic sautéed spinach and mashed red potatoes.

During lunch, graze on a grilled-salmon salad ($11.95 for lunch; $14.95 for dinner), or sample a gourmet club such as the Maryland crab cake, which traps crispy crab behind applewood-smoked bacon bars as grilled tomato plays the harmonica to a captivated lemon-chive aioli ($10.95).
