It was in a busy environment but the staff handled it amazingly and even though you should book on a Friday night due to being busy and not that many tables, the portions are okay enough to fill you up, but the burger is so nice and presented well, reasonable price and worth a visit if your in the area

Came in here after reading reviews as we wernt able to go to our favourite Dray yard smokehouse. The waitress was excellent attentive informative without being pushy. Working in food retail we saw the two young lads in the kitchen NOT wearing hats. minor you may think but if they're not wearing hats what else are they NOT doing. One... More

The restaurant has been in existence since 1972, and is essentially a small American diner on the 1st floor. Have been coming here since the 1970's, and amazed it is still here. Usually visit about once a year for nostalgia purposes, as no longer live in Norfolk. The burgers are normally very nice, but not exceptional. Worth a visit if... More

My husband and I had one of our first dates here way back before dinosaurs in 1978. Over the years we have been back several times and I can honestly say that nothing has changed except the prices. Took some friends in for lunch and the food is still the same. A Norwich institution and rightly so, not a flash... More

Following a hectic mornings shopping activity, it fell on my shoulders to suggest a hunger filling refreshment stop. Captain Americas was a place I visited many years ago and as the rest of the family had not, we headed there. The decor was much as I remembered from my previous visit and the hospitality the same....we were offered a choice... More

Lovely restaurant. Portion sizes are big and great quality! The barbeque sauce burger was delicious! Staff were lovely and friendly. Reason I held back from 5 stars was that there was a small group of men (I suspect were quite drunk), swearing quite loudly which staff ignored. So, for myself and a friend it was fine but wouldn't have been... More

If you are looking for a burger style meal in Norwich then this has definitely got to be top of your list. It is essential that you book as the place is not to big, the tables are a bit close together but it is full of atmosphere and the staff are very friendly and made us welcome, there is... More
