    Default Santa Monica/LA/Long beach restaurant recommendations

    I am from San Diego and my parents are coming to visit. I am taking them to Santa Monica, LA, and staying the night in Long beach so they can see the queen Mary. If anyone has a good restaurant, please leave me the name so I can look it up. I been to Santa Monica and LA so I have a few places, but Long beach is the most help I would need. Thank you.

    My wife and I live in Long Beach; some of our favorites are:

    The Crab Pot - located on the Marina. She loves the crab there. They offer fresh catch (which varies) and the steak is quite good as well.

    Chen's - Located on Broadway, and also has the RinkRat seal of approval.

    Naples area

    K.C. Branaghan's - Tasty Irish fare in a place reminiscent of an old world pub. Taken guests there and the feedback always positive. Smithwick's on tap.

    Belmont Shore area

    George's Greek Cafe - Excellent food, friendly staff. Greek wines available.

    Panama Joe's - Good Mexican offerings and libations. Also has bar with live music, if that's your thing.

    Belmont Brewing Co. - Right by the Belmont Pier; award winning craft beers, wide ranging menu and patio dining overlooking the beach.

    For a quick, casual lunch if needed, try -

    Charo Chicken - (PCH, just south of the Traffic Circle). Best chicken in the city, either the pieces or other Mexican-inspired dishes.

    The Aquarium area has the usual; Outback Steakhouse, Gladstone's, P.F. Chang's and some others.

    Good luck with your get together! The Aquarium area is closer to the Queen Mary, but the others (save Charo) I listed are in nice areas along the coast and not really that far.
    Where are you staying?

    Any of those places down by the Aquarium are great. I like Parker's Lighthouse and the Yardhouse the best, especially if it's Happy Hour. Both have excellent deals on top grade food. If you want the best prime steaks ever, check out 555, which is at 555 E. Ocean. Also, you can't beat the Italian food at La Parollaccia on Broadway (near my crib). A great place to grab a drink is the Sky Room on Ocean which has an excellent view and vintage vibe with a great little bar up on the actual roof of the building.
