The restaurant is very clean. The food is freshly prepared. There is free parking easy to find. Food portions are generous. The waitstaff is efficient and professional.

Excellent breakfast but best known for their superior fish. Take out or eat in no bar service but you can bring your own wine

Decent service but pretty mediocre food. Lox on a bagel was skimpy compared to other places in the area, chowder is thick like paste but tasted OK, so-so lobster salad, sides/toppings seem pre-made and not fresh. Belgian waffle, clam roll and crab cake got thumbs up.

My wife and I are regular customers. We go mostly for breakfast but we have gone with friends and family for lunch and dinner. The staff is friendly, the food is abundant and reasonably priced.

I went for brunch here with kids. The service is excellent and the food is good. Weekend is usually crowded, so sometimes there is wait, but worth it . This is also a good pace for seafood.

On our annual trip north for a couple weeks to escape Lowcountry (Charleston, SC) summer heat index, we go directly to Captain Marden's in Wellesley for our northern Atlantic fish cravings. This place cannot be beat - both retail fish market plus the adjoining restaurant where you BYO wine and enjoy a fantastic 1 1/2 lb boiled lobster for 18... More

The staff always make you feel welcome and the food has always been just as I have hoped it would be. The prices are quite good too. I have visited most often for breakfast and have always been happy that I did...but lunch is solid also. Bonus that you can stop by the store and pick up some of the... More

Although Captain Marden's is known for seafood, I go for breakfast. Everything on the menu is great. Many meals come with large sides of fresh fruit and potatoes.
