Description: Captain Americas brought the original burger to Ireland back in December...
Captain Americas brought the original burger to Ireland back in December 1971. Since then it has continued to serve good quality American style food at great value prices. Home to the famous Captain Americas hamburger and mouth watering flame grilled steaks, there is something for everyone on the menu. Captain Americas offers the most attractive lunch deals in town & the early bird menu is a great way to start every night out. Captain Americas has branches on Grafton St, Blanchardstown and in Cork City. All our restaurants are fully licensed and we have a great selection of cocktails, beers & wines for you to choose from. Over the years we have collected hundreds of pieces of memorabilia from visiting Irish and international stars such as U2, Colin Farrell, Westlife, Debbie Harry and David Bowie and Green Day. Our memorabilia museum creates a unique and interesting atmosphere in the restaurants. We take reservations for groups, please look at our bookings page for further information or call us on the number listed below. Open 7 days a week

Burgers Reasonable; Substandard Ribs; Horrible BBQ Sauce and Pizzas

This place is reasonable for a burger. Good selection, however burgers here seem to be always overcooked- if you ask for medium-rare, you will get well done. I don't know what will happen if you ask for well-done (maybe burnt?) Pizzas are horrible though! And over-priced! Same goes for RIbs... read more

My boyfriend and I went here as a couple for dinner. It was quite busy when we arrived but because we had been meaning to try the place out for a while we stayed and waited to be seated. I went to the bathroom before we got a table and it appeared to be unisex, which is not really what... More

Went here with my wife and two children after raving about their Dublin restaurant for over a year now. What a let down. The food was OK that's all. Not good considering the price. The real problem was the service. Never in my life have we experience such poor service. Waiting ages for our order to forgetting coffees at the... More

Food was average. The burgers were gorgeous but the baked potatoe was probably cooked 12 hours before serving. My friends had chips which were nice. Cocktails were nice. Service was quite bad but that really was due to understaffing and poor organisation of staff. When we did get served the staff were so nice, it really wasn't their fault other... More
