Reviewed August 1, 2012

We went to a wedding here last weekend and it was beautiful. The wedding and reception were both outside overlooking the ocean. Staff was great.

“A cultural outpost in a seaside cottage”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

The city of Long Beach is bravely trying to make a THERE there, but some cultural amenities are scattered outside downtown. In this case, that's all the better. The 2-story museum is an excellent venue for 1 large or 2 smaller shows, and all the exhibits I've seen there were ones I'd return to see again. Usually local artists, which is also a point in its favor. But even if art is not your thing, you'd love the cafe. Great food - a bit pricey - outdoors on the back terrace, where you can glimpse the ocean as you eat!

“A great little museum on the water with a wonderul restaurant!”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

We enjoy the exhibits and the museum! Some real surprizes! And lovely docents and museaum store! And when you're finished, or even before, don't forget to eat at the restaurant, Claires! It's one of the best kept secrets in town. The menu is great and eating under the bright yellow umbrellas with metal scultures all around, looking out at the water, just can't be beat!

“not as good as the LACMA but pretty good for its size”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

They make you feel as though you being there is not just another notch on their tourist belt, it's well maintained and parking isn't a nightmare.

“Nice place to have weddings, and dine”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

I have eaten at Clare's, as well as performed music for a wedding event here. Staff has always been friendly and helpful, and i highly recommend dining here, or even hosting your event.
