Captain A's is a Norwich institution, in the early 80's there was this place and Zaks shack on Cattlemarket Street that could do decent burgers in the centre of town. It must be 25 years since I last visited and I so wanted to write a glowing review! The decor and the seating hasn't changed one bit...which some might call... More

Excellent burger cooked the way that you want it, not the way the food police want you to have it. Captain Americas has been serving consistently excellent food for 45 years under the same ownership, and the new owners have picked up the baton ready to run! Need I say more.

Visited Captain America's at lunchtime on a weekend. The food was good, although fairly average for the price. Portions were fine and the staff were friendly. No problems, but I think there are plenty of other restaurants locally that offer better food for better prices!

Sunday afternoon visit to a regular haunt with our Grandson. Usual friendly reception and lovely attentive staff. Burgers are consistently good quality and perfectly cooked, as are the ribs. We can always rely on Captain America's to do what they do very well EVERY TIME we visit. New owners are making improvements but the good news is that they're not... More

Great food, good portions and friendly staff! Make the bugger buns a bit bigger and I'll give you 5 stars. Lol

Some friends wanted a good burger so where else could I take them. Been there over 40 years and I went when it first opened. The decor needs a bit of an update and the worn carpet on the stairs replaced. Staff are friendly. I had forgotten the tables are fairly cramped so we were able to move to a... More

On a return trip to Norwich, my wife stated she wanted 'a burger' - so where else to go but Captain Americas - where I used to go when I was at school... It was great - perfect diner experience, nothing had changed, in a good sense - it was just a great dining experience, friendly staff and excellent burgers.... More

The good points: The toilets were bright and clean The staff were polite The burgers were ok although no notice was taken of cooking requests The bad points: Decor looking quite worn Stair carpet looking worn out Despite booking ahead staff insisted on cramming six adults into one 4 person booth Burgers aside the rest of the food was cheap,...

Went for a late lunch as a couple. Service was good and staff very friendly. The décor inside was also very nice with bench seats like an American diner and lots of Hollywood and comic book themed props and decorations. But it looks better than it is. I was quite dissapointed with the food though. We felt like American style... More
