Captain Americas has been a family favourite for many many years but after our last visit there we left very disappointed. Food was only alright, and very slow service. The light fitting over our table was actually quite dirty, it needed a good scrub. Made us wonder how clean the kitchen was when something so obvious was so dirty ?... More

This seem to be a hot place for the younger crowed on Grafton Street. It's located upstairs and offers burgers and sandwiches to eat. A nice place for lunch and American style food

Great value lunch special - burgers taste great. Service was fast and attentive - never any delay. Take a window seat if one is free - watching Dublin walk by... More

I've been here a few times with my housemates and we always get the best service and food. The blonde waitress makes us feel like family and always recalls what we like. Thank you captains for a consistently great meal. Nachos are a great choice.

after a wet morning of sightseeing 12 of us went in to this restaurant as it was close and warm. upon entering we were a bit put off as straight away they told us about the service charge as we were a large group, we then waited a good 15-20 minutes before someone came to take our order so we...

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.
