This is my new favourite place. The food was unreal! It came out fast too. I recommend the Philly cheese steak. Service was good and the location is perfect!

I usually visit Captain Americas with friends (all students) for a casual dinner. It is good for informal dining or a nice big feed. Lots of options on the menu to choose from.

Called with 4 adults and 2 children had to wait 20 minutes for a table but that was OK as we'd no booking and they sent us up to the bar upstairs to wait! New yorker burger was fantastic and every thing else we ordered was good and the staff were friendly! Will call again

Myself & my boyfriend went to Captain Americas last night as a treat as we've both been working most of Christmas. It was busy & we didn't think we'd get a seat but luckily we did. However, as we saw a booth open up we asked to be reseated & the girl could not have been nicer! We apologised for... More

I've been to Captain America's countless times throughout my four years in UCC and have never truly had a bad meal there. I recently returned with my boyfriend, having won a voucher for their restaurant and frankly- between the snail slow service and the apathetic staff- I'm not entirely sure I'll be frequenting there again anytime soon.

My friend and I decided to visit captain Americas for dinner around 6pm on the 14th of December, we both had burgers which were nice but what was not nice was the fact we were waiting an hour for our food when everybody else around us seemed to get theirs within 15-20 minutes. The only explanation for this which I... More

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

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 .

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.
