you cannot beat the view at Claire's, their service and menu offerings are excellent. In the summer, be sure to eat on the patio to enjoy the ocean air and sunshine. Brunch on the weekend is popular so get a reservation.

Make reservations! our estimated 45 min wait was nearly 1.5 hours. Service ok but clearly understaffed. Many tables near us were occupied by post meal conversing folks...still there when we left 1.5 hours later. Good beer choices, excellent fish and chips, better than average BLT (included salmon and avocado on a so-so hamburger style bun). Would be great if you... More

We went here on a Sunday so there was quite a wait. They do not accept reservations and are only open Thursdays to Sundays. But with the landscape and the view and the museum itself you would not even feel that you waited in line. We ordered the appetizer "museum work of art", fish and chips and their blackened salmon...

We were visiting the museum, Long Beach Museum of Art. It is a popular place so we had to wait an hour, but it passed quickly. While no actually on the beach, it is on a bluff overlooking Long Beach Harbor. The service was good, the food was great, and we followed the meal with a trip through the museum.... More

Warm, sunny, humid morning. It was early so the wait was short. Outside on the patio the table view was that of the ocean, sail boats & in the distance the Queen Mary. Service is always a little slow considering the number of people who are present. The nicely stuffed with shrimp omelet was generously topped with creamy avocado slices,... More
