Such friendly staff!!! Amazing food, the meat practically fell off the bone on the ribs I had. Such massive portions, everything tasted amazing. I love the theming of the restaurant and the music is awesome. We couldn't love it more! We went back few months later and everything was the same wonderful quality and staff lovely.

Captain America's is a Norwich classic and a great family restaurant I've been going to for years. I popped in for a casual dinner a few month back, and the place was just as I remember. Fantastic 50's American decor giving an authentic homely diner feel, and faultless polite and efficient service. The food was great as always, as you... More

Thought we'd take a trip down memory lane on a Saturday afternoon. Service was quick and pleasant, however the food was a let down. Huge portion of fries , Veggie burger small and bland , no salad or mayonnaise with the poor quality bun. My husbands burger was good but again huge portion of fries and no flavour to the... More

It's amazing to think that about 40 years ago, Captain America's Hamburger Heaven was my very first taste of the real American diner. At the time, and at such a young age, I fell in love with the music, the decor, the ambience, and, of course, the food! I try to get in there whenever I'm in Norwich, and last... More

We love Captain Americas each time we eat there. Great burgers, which come with a huge portion of chips, a great selection of beers too. We especially love the Chilli Con Carne which comes on the 'Chilli Burger', Hot Dog or by itself. Its all great! Always worth a visit!

Went for lunch today. Food arrived quickly, was lovely and hot and enjoyed by the four of us. Had enough from our main course that we didn't have a dessert. Would come here again if in Norwich.

It was a great day assisted by Captain America's. We had a nice meal and Norwich won. Good food and good... More

You really can't fault this place. For 40 years, long before the invention of modern, horribly expensive gourmet burger restaurants, Captain A's has been doing proper burgers. We went on a Saturday, and the service was quick, the portions were massive, the staff always have a smile, and contrary to what other reviews state, the burgers are no smaller (how... More

I am a regular customer at Captain America's and decided to return after being away to University for the year. I love the decor, the music, and the vibe of this place so so much! However, I was disappointed with my meal. The burgers have defiantly changed in size, as have the buns and the 'salad' that comes with it.... More
