This is fast food with table service in an enjoyable setting. Our server was very attentive and as it was our first captain America experience he explained the menu to us. The kids enjoyed their meal and us adults enjoyed ours also. The Dunlea family cork

I love this restaurant as always a favourite with the kids. The food is as expected, it is an up market burger place really and not cheap, but a bit of an institution. The food is quite nice and the chips are really good.

Take a look at the menu and prices before going. Do not go if you are on a budget. Simple. However, if you are prepared to spend, you will not be disappointed. Great atmosphere, friendly staff. Good selection of non-alcoholic cocktails for those not in a position to drink.

Really friendly service. All of the staff always manage a smile despite being the busiest I've ever seen in a restaurant! Only waited 20 minutes for a table of 5 on a Friday night and a good bar waiting area. The food was lovely as always - usually I get the spicy burger but got the blue cheese one and... More

If you are looking for a quiet place to have dinner, this is not the place. The crowd is a young college group, but it is a lot of fun. The food comes out fast and is very good.

Met one of the girls for some dinner and a few drinks here Friday evening. We were asked if we could wait at the bar for 15 minutes. No seats, ordered drinks and the barman tossed my receipt on the counter at me without even looking at me. Got a seat and ordered the jalapeño poppers to start. Just about... More

Visited with my family for dinner. For 2 kids (under 6) myself and my husband the ticket was €82. Very pricey-for frozen food. Burgers were over cooked, they used canned non drained peppers on my salad and the kids pizzas were blackened on the bottom . The waiter was friendly. The food prices were not good value and the taste... More

Firstly, we were told there was a 20 minute wait so we left our names, returned and was told we would have to wait 5 minutes although instead we were waiting for 20 Minutes at the bar. We walked over to ask when we would be seated, they brought us up the back straight away where there was about 7... More

Wings were microwaved and I'm sure I wasn't the first to get them, old and dry and definitely not the first time these had seen the microwave. Burger was horrible and dry, salad was old, onion rings were dry and old. First time I'd had katsu chicken curry, and guess what,,,it was dry and hard, poor poor food and service.

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.
