The food was decent, no complaints there. But homeless people on the street don't have their gaze avoided as much as how the staff avoid making eye contact with you here. It's near impossible, without causing a social scene, to get their attention. I purposely went to the effort of re-downloading the trip advisor app for this review. Also, In... More

Great food and friendly staff, though loud music and general noise from a club upstairs took away from the atmosphere.

It's been our mission to visit all 3 Captain America's restaurants this year and Cork was the last one on the list. Food was tasty and reasonably priced. Staff were very friendly. It wasn't very busy when we ate here during the week so service was quick. Since it was a quiet lunchtime it didn't have the buzz of the... More

I found the food tasty and you were not charged extra for chips. My partner's son is autistic and noise is a problem. The staff had no problem moving us to a quieter location. Family restaurant.

I on many occasion have visited captains in town, the staff make the place and the food comes a close second, always feel welcome when I go for food, the cheese garlic bread is unreal and the brownie wins hands down 😀

Would not be my favourite but it is a good choice for large groups or students. Good 2-for-1 with a student discount card.

Description
Captain Americas brought the original burger to Ireland back in December 1971. Since then it has continued to serve good quality American style food at great value prices. Home to the famous Captain Americas hamburger and mouth watering flame grilled steaks, there is something for everyone on the menu. Captain Americas offers the most attractive lunch deals in town & the early bird menu is a great way to start every night out.

Captain Americas has branches on Grafton St, Blanchardstown and in Cork City. All our restaurants are fully licensed and we have a great selection of cocktails, beers & wines for you to choose from.

Over the years we have collected hundreds of pieces of memorabilia from visiting Irish and international stars such as U2, Colin Farrell, Westlife, Debbie Harry and David Bowie and Green Day. Our memorabilia museum creates a unique and interesting atmosphere in the restaurants.

We take reservations for groups, please look at our bookings page for further information or call us on the number listed below.

Open 7 days a week
