Great breakfast

We came here for breakfast during a family reunion trip in the area. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great. My omelette was one of the best I've had a restaurant. My parents had the blueberry pancakes and loved them. Great breakfast spot!

This place has been in town forever. Great seafood, very nice staff, BYOB. Kid friendly. It has saved us many week nights when we needed help with dinner.

We were craving fish and chips and excited to see that there was no wait on a Tuesday. The calamari and fish and chips were not greasy but just bland. Not worth having fried food. I happened to get a bake potato which was ok until I found a hair that looked more like the server's than mine. Our server... More

The seafood here is amazing. Some of our favorite dishes include the lobster roll and the baked halibut. Service is hit-or-miss, especially if you dine-in during peak hours (dinner on Friday or brunch Sunday morning); that said it has never stopped us from coming, and we've been regulars for over 10 years! For the price relative to the quality of... More

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
