Breakfast, Brunch & Deli? Love Munchly!

You cannot get fresher seafood anywhere in Metro-west. The restaurant is quaint and well maintained. The service staff is exceptional and the food is out of this world. You can also if the time is appropriate get fish of all types to take home. Just like it it came of the boat that day.

The fish is always fresh at Captain Mardens! We've eaten here for about 15 years! We've never had a bad meal. And although we usually go for dinner, the breakfasts are wonderfully creative and worth the trip. Eggs Benedict with crabmeat or lobster is a treat! Well done, Captain!

Been here a few times with mixed results. Let's start off with the good. The food is prepared well and tasty and the wait time was not unreasonable. We generally get fried platters and find them very good. This time I tried the raw oysters and found them good as well. But after that the waitress seemed to pull a... More

Great place for eat-in and take-out. The restaurant seems to be a hot-spot for the older crowd, but my 30-something husband and I enjoy it as much as they do! I would not recommend bringing small children as it's small and quiet - that said, it has been a regular take-out spot for us and our toddler! Great seafood, simply... More

This is a very popular brunch/breakfast spot, especially for Wellesley senior citizens. As a fish restaurant it is nothing special. Do yourself a favor and go next door to the outstanding fish market, buy some fish, and take it home for yourself.

Restaurants who carry Capt.Marden's seafoods know what a badge of quality that is. Boston is full of small seafood companies but this one is certainly one of the best. If you shop there and live nearby, you are most fortunate!

On my wife's recommendation I met someone for breakfast here, and we were both very pleased with the breadth of the menu, the friendly service, and the sunny atmosphere. This is a delightful place for breakfast, and is much bigger inside than it seems from outside.
