Was here 25th February for something to eat. First time going here and I was very impressed. Lovely food. Friendly staff. Will definitely be back here next time I'm back in Dublin.

We were probably one of the first couples to frequent Captain Americas many many decades ago. We have always been very fond of the place and there have been real flashes of culinary genius, even with the humble burger, over the years! All the children have been there, followed, lately, by the a grandchildren. Unfortunately, as time time passes, the... More

We went in on a Sunday afternoon recently for some lunch. It's very tight for space. The booths are very small. We ordered a bowl of spicy chicken wings to share for starters. They were not spicy at all and they appeared to be covered in more of an oil than a sauce. Not much chicken on the wings either.... More

We visited twice in 2 days with our 2 young daughters while in Dublin. Both times the food and service was excellent. The menu was vast and we couldn't have hoped for a more family friendly place. Will definitely return when next in Dublin.

It's busy because it's good. It's fun and noisy not a quiet spot but right smack central and drinks and food are great. Couldn't recommend it more.

I think this is one of my top 3 favourite restaurants in Dublin. I've been here multiple times with friends and it never ceases to amaze me. The chicken wings for starter are bomb and enchiladas for main are my go to! My mouth is watering as I write this review. Lunch deals available also.

I have been a big fan of this restaurant up to now. However, on Thursday, January 26th, my wife and I went to Captain Americas hoping to have a nice meal before attending a new play in the Gaiety Theatre. Instead, we got what could only be described as over-priced and truly horrible food. My wife ordered breast of chicken,... More

The menu is great, burgers plus other items, with a separate well priced and well portioned kids menu. We went at lunch time with 3 kids under 8 and it was challenging to get the kids and the stroller and associated baby changing bag up the stairs and then get stuck on the stairs in the queue for entry. Once... More

Arrived at about 6.10pm on a Tuesday evening. The place was packed but we were told to take a seat in the bar and our table for 6 would be about 15 minutes. Within 10 minutes the waitress had us sat at our table and ordering from a menu. Lots of choice and I went with the sirloin strip steak... More

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.
