I had read that the clam chowder was excellent - had it 2 nights in a row and loved it. I had New England my husband had Manhattan and we both liked it. Our granddaughter had the huge hamburger ( 3 patties) with fries and raved about it both nights. The second night my husband and I shared the awesome chocolate cake.

Was dining by myself. Took 30 minutes to get a hamburger. They said the reason it took to long was that the order was not cooked correctly. Charged $25 for a hamburger that had a crab cake on it.

I’ve been coming here to eat with my daughter and we love it! The food and staff are great, and we always talk about it to all of our friends and family. I had a friend visit from out of state, so i brought him here for some drinks and food and he said that i was right on point. The experience was amazing and wants to return, next time he is visiting. A million thank you to the staff and chefs!

The famous Queen Mary was the initial attraction. What an incredible ship with amazing history. We made the trip to Long Beach from north LA, and it was worth it. Sir Winston’s was booked so we opted for Chelsea’s. Good option. Casual with window views of Long Beach. Very beautiful and romantic. Food was very good, I had baked cod with asparagus and my wife had a dinner salad. We both started with chowder, New England for my wife and Manhattan for me. Drinks before at the bar were very good. For nostalgia buffs like me the Queen Mary is a must, and Chelsea’s is a good place to eat and relax after the ship tour.

We took our brother and sister-in-Law to see the Queen Mary (the historical tour was great, by the way) and we ate at Chowder House - great chowders: clam and Corn/Chicken! My wife enjoyed a great ‘mule’ drink as well. We sat by a window and could see the harbor and Long Beach as the sun set.

The food was okay. We ordered calamari, fish and chips and the shrimp scampi. The calamari was good, the fish and chips were too oily when we got it. The shrimp scampi was very watery and tasted like water. Our waitress was very nice though.

The chowder we had was extremely salty. Service took a really long while, considering it was an afternoon service with about 4 or 5 tables. The server doesn’t feel like in his accommodating mode so to speak . We had a light meal after a tour at the Queen Mary. I wouldn’t go back there again.

The Chelsea's Chowder House on the Queen Mary docked in Long Beach was a good time including food & spirits! We visited during the Christmas holiday season after touring the 'Grey Ghost' and enjoyed the continuation of 'fun facts' on the walls! Our service was great, but would like to see a more varied entrée selection on the menu.

My party and I arrived at the Queen Mary parking lot where we were supposed be able to park for free, but instead we were charged at a discounted rate. The signage was poor, and we were not sure where to enter the ship for the restaurant. When we finally found where to go ourselves once onboard the vessel. We were greeted and seated right away. The food was on the expensive side, and the quality was not exceptional just good. I would not recommend dining at this restaurant. Instead, the Queen Mary is a better place to go for drinks at one of the many bars onboard.

We had a wonderful time exploring the Queen Mary; just like being on a cruise ship from the 1940's! Several decks, stores, restaurants, gift shops, news stands, tours, museum exhibits. And I love all the old wood! So beautiful.

This is the mid-price restaurant on the Queen Mary. The staff were friendly, the food and service were good. For some reason the air conditioning was on (in December), so it was uncomfortably cold all through the meal. I would return but would bring extra layers.
