Long Beach has the kind of relaxed atmosphere that anyone would expect from a beach-side community, and that relaxed atmosphere carries over into its food. While the city has a few upscale and fine dining establishments, the most popular Long Beach restaurants are those with a comfortable and laid back feel that makes diners feel like they are at home.

At Last Cafe gives diners a chance to people watch as they enjoy their food. Diners have the option to sit outside on the patio and watch the world go by; but on rainy or cold days, diners might prefer sitting inside. The American cuisine feels comforting, and the restaurant has the type of atmosphere that keeps customers returning.

Those looking for something a little more elegant might head over to District Wine. Though it does have a vast wine selection, it also has a number of dishes that keep guests happy. The daily happy hour drops the price on some dishes, and customers can find reduced prices on local wines. The flatbread pizzas served with a glass of wine are one of the best dishes on the menu.

George's Greek Deli makes dining in Long Beach easy and fun. This small deli has a wide takeout menu, which includes salads and sandwiches that customers can carry to the beach for an impromptu picnic. One of the classic Long Beach food offerings is Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles. This iconic restaurant serves a wide range of southern comfort foods, including fried chicken served on waffles, chicken chili, collard greens and macaroni and cheese. The chicken and waffles served with a side of greens will make anyone's mouth water.

Eating in Long Beach is a fun and relaxing experience. Whether it's having a picnic on the beach, grabbing some takeout for dinner at home or eating out at one of the Long Beach restaurants, even the pickiest eater can find something to fulfill his or her appetite.
