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.

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.

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.

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.

This restaurant is advertising meals no longer on the menu. I ordered the clam chowder soup which on the menu comes in a bread bowl. It did not. The menu was short, not a lot to choose from.

We spent our evening on Queen Mary at Chelsea's Chowder House. The food was lovely but the overall ambience was a little bit of a let down - it could have been better considering how much money we spent!

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.
