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.

Food was tasty. Staff were attentive and friendly. Although I felt pressured to order more food and drinks here, compared to other restaurants. Sir Winstons is lovely for an old world, romantic dining experience.

Took my honey there for his 60th birthday. His 2 brothers & sis-in-laws flew in from out of state. Luis was WONDERFUL and made our lunch surprise even better with the cake & great ideas. He suggested the Lobster Bisque, which I've never had, WONDERFULLY smooth and tasty. Everyone LOVED the Fish & Chips, including the Bday boy. I had Ceaser Salad w/chk, wow, it was so fresh.
Walking around afterwards made the day even MORE amazing.
I can't wait to go back again.
THANK YOU for helping make my honey's day so special.
P.S. and than you for the great weather because now it's too hot! lol

Steak and pasta were delicious. Our server Angel was courteous and provides us great service.
We were celebrating on our daughter's birthday celebration and we were surprised by the cake and candle given to her.The restaurant has spectacular view of the long beach harbor.
I highly recommend to dine on this restaurant either you are on a business trip or pleasure.

A truly beautiful place to eat. Very good food, an excellent view and the waitress was great.
It's an 800 mile trip from my house. But my family and I will definitely eat here again when we come back next year.

The roadway to the harbor is in need of repair. The exterior of the ship has not been kept up. The interior is interesting and the Queen Mary is a good example of another era when travel was at a more leisurely pace. The dining area is not air conditioned and was quite uncomfortable in the early evening. The service was very poor. The meal, however, was excellent.

Pricey, probably because it is on the Queen Mary. There is a good view from any table. The macaroni and cheese does not have a crusty top as indicated and the meat on the Ruben sandwich was hard and dry. The lobster was good sized and cooked to the right consistency. The staff and kitchen are flexible and responsive.

The waiting area was very stuffy ....like there was no air. Really need to get some type of ventilation going....even a fan would have helped. Also, your webpage picture shows people eating crab legs and we specifically went for crab legs and there were none on the menu. We looked at the online menu and did not see them....so we thought they would be a daily special since there was an entire webpage with one huge picture of a family eating crab legs.....kind of disappointing. The food we ordered was good though.

If you make a reservation at noon or 12:30 you will probably be seated on the window side, which provides a great view of downtown Long Beach across the water. I lowered the rating due to the length of time it took to receive and process the bill due to the tables had filled up and there were too few waiters.

Definitely great food, menu could be expanded a little bit but is definitely good as is. The view is beautiful on the Queen Mary and I guess that's why the food is a little pricey. Overall, service is great and so is the atmosphere so it was worth the extra few bucks for a special dinner.
