Great food!!

Local staple -- seems like a "Diner's Drive-in and Dives!" joint. Good food and definitely is a local place.

Captain Marden's is a great place for buying fresh seafood and bringing it home (we have done that numerous times) or enjoying a meal on premises. Captain Marden's supplies seafood to many restaurants and country clubs in the metro-west area. I highly recommend this place.

So yummy. The Maine Catch is an unusual Eggs Benedict dish with crab meat under the eggs. I prefer additional fruit so I requested to hold on the home fries and provide extra fruit. This is an amazing dish!

I bought fresh fish to cook on the grill. Their fish is always fresh and the selection is excellent.

We've dined at Capt. Marden's for years enjoying their fresh and delicious fish dishes. We returned last week after a rather long hiatus of perhaps 1 year; delicious crab cakes, shrimp, and specials of snapper and more exotic seafood ! Casual, not at all upscale, the restaurant continues to satisfy and please - corn bread = a nice pre-meal treat.... More

Already impressed enough after one visit to write up a full, detailed review and I can't wait to go back! What's the worst thing about CMS? The parking sitch. I believe I parked "illegally" at the building next to it because the lot was so full at about 1 PM on a weekday. Luckily, I was able to grab the... More

The Captains fish is so fresh and their cooked shrimp is the best you will ever have. You will pay more but 4 of theirs is better than10 of someone else's. They also have a restaurant that I wish was open later at night but the food is excellent and their breakfast beats anywhere around here.

the corn bread was very good, but the fish and chips were awful; the fish, french fries were ok; the fried clams, ok, not wonderful. Service...poor.
