Great meals

I've had breakfast and dinner. The food is always fresh and tasty. Great neighborhood spot. All of the fish sold in the market is fresh and high quality.

The restaurant is great. It is part of the enterprise that includes Captain Marden's takeout and a large wholesale business. Captain Marden's has the best seafood in Massachusetts, including Legal Seafood.It's also a third generation family business which sets a welcoming tone for all visits there.

The freshest fish and seafood since they next Captain Marden's fish market. There is no liquor license, so you can bring your own which is nice. Dinner is always served with delicious corn bread. I just went for my birthday and had a 2 pound steamed lobster, delish!

Big menu, great french fries, wonderful shrimp in the market, wild caught from Mexico, love the fresh crabmeat in the market and often order the Lobster salad split with the crabmeat salad in the restaurant. Since over the years, I will go once a week…there have been great dinners and some not great dinners. The steamed mussels have been outstanding,... More

This is an old & worthy establishment in Wellesley & it surely deserves the staus of being tried and true. The seafood is fresh and incredible. Their breakfasts,brunches & lunches are such treats to the eyes and to the palette! I've been so impressed with Captain Marden's for over three decades. Trying them is a must.

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
