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.

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.

I had steak and vegetables which I really thought was not well prepared. Others in my party ate alternate dishes and seemed to fare better. So don't order the steak. Or, if you do, prepare to send it back if it's not to your specs....More
