We booked a table for 7:30 we arrived and our name wasn’t on booking sheet. We got a table and then we’re told it’s a different menu all together which had 1 item basically no option. Nobody informed us about prior to being seated so we left. Only good thing were staff were friendly. Other then that and absolute joke.

Visit was a birthday treat.
Food was great.
A little expensive, but it was a treat.
Eat too much 🤣
Most of all our waitress was fantastic, so pleasant, cheerful and helpful.
We will definitely be back for the next occasion.

Everyday food was nice to eat but paying hotel prices. We arrived 8 minutes before our booking and were asked to go back outside in the wind and rain to wait until the exact time. The table that we were given when we returned had been empty the first time we arrived. Got a share bowl of wings for started and only one wipe given between 4 of us and when we asked for more they never arrived. We then asked for a bowl of water for the fingers after the wings that came out with the main. Had to get the wings boxed to take home.

Fantastic service as usual, but floors were slippy in the section heading to the toilets! Slipped and fell the first time, was cautious thereafter

Waited over an hour for the food to arrive. When it did it wasn’t great it had been rushed out it was clear the order had been forgotten.

Usually the food is amazing just wasn’t this time round.

What made it more disappointing was seeing the staff overworked for the work load. They have all the online orders to deal with and a full restaurant.

The manager did apologise for the delay alright so I was thankful for that when we left. Just seems with the online orders and the number of people they’ve taken on more than they can deal with when it does get busy.

The menu had plenty of choice and the portion size was large and good value for money. Every staff member was welcoming and friendly. They were very helpful when ordering and informed us about current offers and discounts we were not aware of. The drinks were very nice and good value also and the service ran smoothly and there was no long wait time between courses or drink orders. I would definitely recommend Captain America's to anyone looking for good value food and drink with an upbeat atmosphere and quality service. This was my first time eating here and I will return indefinitely.

Nice welcome staff. Table was nicely located and chairs were comfortable.
Our first waitress was very nice but issues started with how long the drinks took to come despite being in front of the bar. It was a bit noisy but normal for a Saturday night. Order was made for the food and taken and delivered correctly. Above average wait time. Food was excellent in every way. Offered the dessert menu and waited for 10 minutes before standing up and asking for the dessert menu at the bar and then the same waitress came down and asked if we wanted the dessert menu? A different waitress came down asking our order for more cocktails and we had the sense that she was impatient. When a customer is unsure what to get maybe it’s a good idea to suggest a bestseller (etc). Once we finished we got the bill and the previous waitress thanked us and asked if everything was Ok. Bare in mind this is a time when every second table was vacant for social distancing so they weren’t run off their feet unless they are operating with a lot less staff. I still would recommend for the great location, Nice American diner style, great menu and excellent food.

The restaurant had a great atmosphere, the service was great and timely. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Food arrived at a good time and was delicious. I ordered the Frenchie Burger with a side of fries and it was excellent. My friends ordered the New Yorker and loved it. I was pleasantly surprised at the Triple Chocolate cake as chocolate desserts tend to be quite heavy, but this one was fantastic really tasty and a great end to the dinner. Cocktails were great as well would recommend the Woo Woo and Blue Lagoon.

Food was great! Service was fine. Although when ordering was asked if we wanted guacamole with a dish but wasn’t told it was an extra charge, presumed it’s was just a yes or no.

We were sat on a table that everyone in the restaurant had to pass in order to use the toilet and none of the other customers were wearing masks going to the bathroom and each person passing were nearly on top of the outside person as they passed. A group of three stopped for a chat right behind us and we just had to sit there inches apart from complete strangers with no masks on. My partner is a vulnerable person as he has an autoimmune disease so we have rarely ventured out during all this but I thought with the distancing measures in place, that we would be ok to go out for dinner for his birthday. We asked if we could be moved but we were told it was too busy. We genuinely couldn’t believe anyone would think these seats are ok they definitely can’t be adhering to government guidelines. The service was lovely, food was lovely but definitely won’t be returning just in case we get a seat like that again it was very disappointing with everything else being so nice that we just ended up stressed for night over the seating.
