Overall I've ate here countless amount of times and I think the Cajun Chicken burger is hands down the nicest burger ever that is if you like a lot of a sauce!! The pizza has always been a disappointment though, as it's way too greasy!! Their milkshakes are also one of my favourites, their prices are also very reasonable you... More

stopped by for lunch with my girlfriend and the first thing we heard at the door was the hostess/waitress asking us "table for 2 ? this way" we didn't have time to respond but thought that it's the typical lunch rush. We ordered 2 starters and 2 burgers as a main course and i asked for a Mojito. The waitress... More

Firstly the kids meal was good value for money and the my boy loved his food. Also the lady who served us was great. Sadly my nachos looked good. But unfortunately wasn't as good as they looked. They weren't warm enough. Cocktails were over priced .

Stopped in for lunch, upstairs dining in the city. Menu has good selection with plenty for every one. Burgers are €15-€20 but very good & tasty. The Coca Cola was not the best but very attentive staff dealt with that & deduction followed. Staff are excellent. Well recommend

Hi, I was shocked to hear that our toilets were 'filthy' as we do place a great emphasis on toilets checks in order to maintain the high standards that we set ourselves. Since your review we have re-trained the staff on toilet checks as well as doubled the amount of checks during a shift. I do hope the next time... More

Spotted a Groupon offer so we headed there with kids (10, 7 & 4). The atmosphere was lively enough with a good mix of people so we weren't worried about the kids chatting and slurping milkshakes!

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
