“Great Experience!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

We went here for a comedy show and also had dinner here. The jumbo gulf shrimp were pretty good. And the drinks were regular. We seen Eddie Ifft he was really funny and good. I enjoyed his show he was really funny laughing non stop. But the overall experience was good. Atmosphere was great. Our hotel at the Hilton was right across the street from the place. So if you are staying there you can walk across the street instead of driving.

“Went for the Comedy Show - stayed for the Key Lime Pie!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

I did not eat a full meal here, so keep that in mind. We heard about the comedy show from our shuttle driver (let me re-iterate - rent a car...so much cheaper than a shuttle from the airport). The decor is a hoot - giant sea creatures and nets hanging from the ceiling a great white shark busting through the wall behind the comedy stage - fun. The drinks were good and the alligator bites were fun to nosh on while we listened to the comedians. We saw John Winn, who was hilarious. Then we ordered the Key Lime pie - just to try it...YUM! It's not a dessert I would normally order - but I would definitely order it again at Captain Brien's. Delicious!

“Comedy Club”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

With a two purchase minimum I felt this place was perfect for some comedy. We enjoyed Eddy Ifft and the atmosphere.

“Great Everything!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

We were in the area for a long weekend for a wedding and this place was one of many within walking distance of our condo. Our server Arlett Garcia was fabulous. She makes an awesome, fabulous, fantastic bloody mary! The atmosphere is great. Very "captain-like"! We never ended up going to the comedy club inside but we DID go back for lunch again another day. The food was so good! If we are ever in the area again we will definitely return to Captain Brien's!

“Save your money.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

This restaurant needs to be on Bar Rescue. We walked in and 4 people behind the bar/kitchen entrance area looked over at us and then continued their conversations with each other (and we are pretty sure one of them was the manager!). Our son started babbling at which point someone reluctantly came over to seat us. Poor service all around. And absolutely bland and over-greasy food at expensive prices. My son LOVES grilled cheese and he didn't even have more than one bite. It was basically a slice of cheese on some toast. I had the boom boom shrimp. It was ok. But then I noticed all the poop veins, making it unappetizing. My husband had the fish and chips and they were very greasy and very bland. Tartar sauce or malt vinegar may have helped but it wasn't offered. We left 90% of the food on our plates and told our server nothing was good but he just walked away. He didn't seem to care and neither did the manager. Long story short, we wasted $45 for poor service and below mediocre food. Check out Rookies or Davinci's instead.
