This has been a local Long Beach consistent favorite for 20+ years. Rarely does the 555 disappoint, and when they do it's usually because the servers & bus staff are slammed with customers, as was the case w/ my last visit in June 2007. The menu consists mostly of steak and seafood items (continental fare), tasty salads (blue cheese wedge is delicious!) & a full bar. Dark wood/masculine interior styling, attentive wait staff (most of the time), valet parking (a must in downtown LB during weekday hours). If you are in a hurry, or if you have time for a more casual/leisurely dining experience, you can always sit at the bar for a meal. While 555 is not my favorite restaurant in Long Beach, it is certainly one of the best -- Long Beach Girl, born and raised.

Our family recently stayed at the Westin Hotel in Long Beach, CA before a Royal Caribbean cruise. There were 8 of us and we wanted a nearby restaurant within walking distance and found 555 East Ocean Blvd. listed in the AAA book. This is definitely a steak and sea food house and an excellent one! Most of us had filet mignon ($26-$36) or rib eye ($36). While it is not an inexpensive restaurant, the steak was the best we have ever had. Despite the restaurant being full of patrons, our table was ready when we arrived and our server was very attentive. We found out later that it was voted Best California Steakhouse by the Beef Council.
