    Had a wonderful dinner - great service and a wonderful chat with Fouzia who gave us great recommendations for places to see and things to do. The view was outstanding and the night was made very special.

    Best feature is shipboard dining and bay & Long Beach view. Food not great and not a good value. Lamb was over cooked. Fried fish with fries and no cole slaw was underwhelming. Restaurant does validate parking so you pay $10 vs. $25. I recommend to go to Parker's Lighthouse restaurantin shoreline village, enjoy good food and view of Queen Mary from across the bay.

    Exceptional food and service. The view overlooked the Long Beach harbor. The vibe is very chill and peaceful. Came here to celebrate my birthday, and it did not disappoint. The clam chowder was thick and hearty, with the whole clam included. Perfect 👌🏽 We tried the garlic roasted oysters, which were full of buttery, garlic goodness. Almost reminds me if my favorite charbroiled oysters in New Orleans 😋🦪 Our steak was grilled perfectly to our request, and do not pass on the buttered bread rolls. We had 2 sets. So good. Great experience overall. Would recommend. You do need reservations to get into the ship, and they do validate your parking ticket for half off.

    Dining on the Queen Mary is always a delight because of the atmosphere and elegance of this Art Deco ship of history. My favorites at the Chelsea are the clam chowder, the bread service, the Frito Misto, the Filet Mignon and the Creme Brulee. Be sure to grab one of their signature cocktails and dress the part.

    We had an amazing experience once again! Our server Rubin was a pleasure! He paced our meal well and helped me with a great wine pairing with my Mahi Mahi. He also spoiled me with a delicious birthday dessert candle lit and song sung. I might add that the bartender makes the best vodka martinis on the ship!

    Was t sure what to expect based on reviews, and we loved it ! Party of five for a Bon Voyage send off - had three appetizers (salad, shrimp cocktail and fritto misto) and one entree each. Server was fun and helpful and delivery of items was smooth and with nice presentation. Be sure to get a window seat- view is priceless!

    We love Chelsea Chowder House! Luke was our server and he is very personable. Our meal was delicious and the martinis were marvelous. I had the lamb chops and my husband had the swordfish both were cooked to perfection. We started with the oysters and also shared the wedge salad. Ended with a beautiful chocolate mousse cake complementary for my birthday. We had a lovely evening. If Luke is your server don’t forget to write a note in his “passport “ book.

    Great food and location! I’m a So Cal native and wanted something fun to do with out of town guests. We boarded an hour early and had drinks at the cute bar, then walked around a little to see the models. The entire experience and food did not disappoint! Our drinks were great, the sunset view lovely and food was perfectly prepared, seasoned and portioned. We had fresh oysters, the daily fish and didn’t need any additional sides to be content. Would definitely recommend for an alternative to the marina restaurants.

    A little pricey but worth the experience eating a fine dinner on the Queen Mary. Had the wedge salad (which is large enough to share) & hubby had the clam chowder-lots of clams, potatoes and bacon. The filet was overcooked a little for medium rare but good. Shrimp dish was good but really rich. Desserts of ice cream and mascarpone cheese cake were very good as was the coffee. Service was excellent.

    Chelsey Chowder House & Bar lacked ambiance (lighting and esthetics can easily improve the place). Food was delicious (Lamb was superb) a bit overprice for the type of place. The best part was the service. Luke our waiter was friendly, a pleasure to talk to, and made sure we were taking care of.

    Please realize that you are going to be CHARGED $40 to walk onto the ship, regardless of the time of your reservation. I did NOT see this AT ALL listed on the restaurant pages of the QM website. I was HORRIFIED when my out of town friends texted me that they had to pay to get on as did I when I arrived. I would have NEVER suggested or made a reservation for the Chelsea Chowder House if I had known that!! We had drinks in the Observation Deck, ambiance was good, wine was nice. Bar menu very limited, maybe 6 items offered. I didn't partake, my friends has the pretzel bites as they were so hungry. Dinner was just okay, not spectacular. We had the Mahi, Salmon and Shrimp Pasta. Dessert was creme brulee (strain the custard before baking please, it was not smooth. I am a baker, I know these things) Brulee top was good. Also had the baked apple. They liked it. Prices weren't too over the top especially since it cost us an additional $120 just to have dinner... I WOULD NEVER GO THERE AGAIN FOR DINNER OR DRINKS.....just warning ya.

    Absolute disappointment. Food was overpriced for the quality- especially when factoring in parking and ship entrance fees that cannot be waived. Even with reservations, $25 per person just to enter to go eat before 5:45, on top of your restaurant bill. Accommodations should be made for guests with reservations to eat. A voucher perhaps? Conclusion? Not worth the time or money.

    You have to be willing to pay $25 to enter the ship before 6p.m. and $10 after 6 p.m. just to get to the Chelsea + $10 validated parking if you can leave the ship right after your meal. The prices are high too and the portions are small. The food wasn't very good. The fish and chips was like getting what you do in a frozen dinner and the clam chowder didn't have many clams. The shrimp pasta had 3 shrimp in it. $115 for a second rate meal!

    Got the clam chowder, it was watery and tasteless. Also got the wedge salad, and the lettuce was soggy and old, and the dressing was very watery. Tried to order dessert, but it took so long we had to cancel our order. It’s overpriced and we won’t be back. We are also letting everyone we know not to go there.

    Our server was amazing, and the food was very good. Unfortunately the restaurant was unable to seat us at our scheduled time. We had a reservation for weeks, and required the extra 35 minutes for our dining experience as we had a non refundable tour. We ended up having to take our entrée togo. We spoke to the manager on duty who was very unfriendly and unaccomidating. Over all the femal Manger made it a bad experience and was very unprofessional.

    We had a great experience several months ago at Chelsea House. However, on our last visit on 2/13/2024, we noticed the quality of the food had changed. You are now charged for the bread, and it was included with your meal for free on our last visit. The lambchops were very small, and to be honest, they were the smallest I've ever seen. In addition, the sauce used for the lambchops was bland. They didn't offer mint jelly, which is the standard sauce paired with lambchops. I hope the Chelsea House reviews this review and makes changes to this food item. Also, the New England clam chowder was white, but the texture was watery, instead of the texture being a thick white sauce, and the chowder was not very tasty.

    Views of Shoreline Village and Long Beach are lovely. Service was good and everyone was friendly. Food was mediocre and someone bland. The drink/wine selection was good. The decor was cold and did not seem to fit the art deco theme of the ship, it felt out of place.
