So I decided to eat here while I stayed on the Queen Mary. I really liked the food, service and atmosphere. The food that I ate was simple, but delicious. Definitely recommended! Will be going again once I visit the Queen Mary a second time.

Chelsea Chowder House & Bar portrays to be chic but remains unstylish. It fails, or doesn't cast-it's-culinary-line far enough from the Queen Mary. While onboard, you are held captive asea; charged the equilvant of a pirates'-ransom; and receive a small-pond-like, and not an oceangoing, dining...More

Enjoyed dinner twice when staying in Long Beach. Great to be able to enjoy the ship. The food was good: all the standard fare, such as chowder and fish & chips.
