  • "Friendly greeting, table was ready. Server very attentive. Food delicious. Highly recommend."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Great place for quick fresh fish that tastes great when you want to go casual! The salads were fresh!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "This is one of many restaurants in a shopping area. There is indoor and outdoor dining. Menu has lots to choose from. There were 6 of us, each had something different and it was very good. I'd return."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "I was in town for a conference at the Marriott. Never been to Marco before and wanted to entertain a large group including customers my group wants to gain business. First Capt Briens was able to handle large groups which was great. Second the server did an admirable job handling a party of 15 alone. Third the menu had variety as I had a few non- seafood lovers in the group so something for everyone. And finally the food was great. Everyone without exception said their meal was excellent. And price was reasonably. Most important it created an atmosphere where we could discuss business and enjoy ourselves."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "Lobster bisque was the best of everything that my husband and I ordered, his New England clam chowder was watery and not many clams. I had macadamia encrusted mahi mahi and it was tasteless, pallea was just ok. Will not be going back."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Food was excellent and reasonably priced. The young staff was friendly, efficient, and worthy of a big tip."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "They did not have our reservation but did seat us immediately when we mentioned Open Table. They were only about 1/3 full anyway. Our server was attentive, however was not aware of any specials that were published in the web. No knowledge nor confidence. The entertainer was so loud we couldn't hear each other. He was a decent guitarist but his voice was not good enough to dominate our conversations with each other and the wait staff."
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "Great Oysters. Christie, our waitress was very friendly and attentive. Also, great outdoor atmosphere"
    Dined on 1/28/2014
  • "They did not have our reservation! They were able to accommodate us, however. It could have been bad because I was entertaining special guests."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "Great service!!!!! Many options. Good choice of sides such as a sweet potato and baked beans. Willing to accommodate health restrictions. Reasonable prices and large portions."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Wait staff was very friendly gave great menu recommendations, sat outside and really enjoyed the casual setting. Food included all the old school favorites, was very fresh and tasty. Good value and good place for families to eat seafood in outdoor setting."
    Dined on 1/2/2014
  • "We went to Captain Brien's for dinner on our last night of vacation. My husband really wanted a good seafood dinner to end our trip. The restaurant is family-friendly, as we had our one-year-old son with us. There is a good selection of kids meals and they are very reasonably priced. I had the scallop dinner with the sweet potato and broccoli. Everything was delicious. My husband had a combo platter and it was just what he was looking for. Our waitress was very friendly and gave us prompt attention. We were there at approximately 6:00 and it was not very busy inside the restaurant. A lot of people were sitting in outdoor seating when we left though. Overall great experience, definitely a place we would visit again!"
    Dined on 1/2/2014
  • "But lackluster service and our meals were only warm. The metal chairs are uncomfortable and make a lot of loud scraping noise."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Outstanding outdoor atmosphere with great food. Raw bar and seafood are fresh and awesome. Always go here when we are in town."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "Took over an hour to get our food. Everyone seated close to us experienced the same. Had to get up and refill our own water glasses. Several people just gave up and left. Restaurant was filled at approx 75% capacity. Charged an "extra plate" fee of $3 because we shared our food!"
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Great pick for us. The place was bustling, on Christmas. Located in a strip mall, w/ several oher dining options. us! Not sure all working were true wait staff, etc, as service was extremely slow. A live band w/ steel drum was so fun. The ambiance made it light and happy to be there- as it's loud. The tuna tartare has a great presentation & tastes delicious. Other items seemed "slopped" on a plate. I had the shrimp salad, it was fine- large shrimp. The lobster tails looked better- next time I will get that & something from the raw bar. I'd definitely return, if given more time on the island."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "My family recently dined at Capt. Brien's. I don't anticipate returning. The kitchen must have been short staffed. Appetizers took 45 minutes to arrive and entree's took 1 hr. 10 minutes. The manager seemed to be aware of the problems and complaints and his response was to high tail to his office. Our server was apologetic and made frequent trips looking for his orders."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Went to marco island on a mini vacay with my husband. we had a craving for seafood and oysters... Service was good, and fast. We had the oysters which were awesome and fresh. My husband got the surf and turf with shrimp; the tenderloin was soooo tender melt in your mouth good the shrimp was blahhh. I got the crab cakes with mashed potatoes and vegetables---black beans with crab cakes (dry, full of breadcrumbs) i didnt enjoy it, mashed potatoes that taste like they were box made and the broccoli was cold. Maybe there are other things on the menu that are good but my overall review is..Blahhh"

  • "Celebrating my birthday my wife and I chose Captain Briens on Marco Island. I loved the Malpeque Oysters freshly shucked and had perhaps the best grouper ever (served crunchy). My wife's shrimp salad was excellent as well. Our server Lexi and her assistant were attentive, capable and not intrusive. We will come again. W"

  • "Great food, great service and the entertainment was top notch."
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "We had a group of 8... 4 adults, 4 kids (3-10). Our first visit we were seated outside almost immediately and the wait staff was great. She was attentive and really went the extra step to accommodate us and the kids. Food was pretty good - great kids menu. We decided to return the next night - as it was convenient and the kids menu. We were seated inside... And right off the bat the waiter really didn't want much to do with us. Was borderline rude when my wife tried to over a cocktail by telling her "you don't want that, I will come back". Overall he just seemed to be bitter and extra inattentive... Our guess was he was too worried about only getting the automatic 18% tip for this size of a party. Sad really."
    Dined on 11/26/2013
  • "We showed up for an 8:00PM reservartion on a Saturday night and was told that inside seating was avbailable only if you paid for the comedy show $48.00/couple. Upon expressing my displeasure of this we were approached by a gentlemen by the name of JJ who said he was the owner. JJ listened to me and personally found us a table in side at N/C where we enjoyed specialty martinis and great seafood. Thanks JJ for making a good businesss decisicion and keeping this customer happy."

  • "We went there for the comedy club and wasn't sure what to expect. Excellent food with so many choices!!! So glad we went!"

  • "We had supper along with a comedy show. What a great combination !! Food is very good !!!"
    Dined on 7/26/2013
  • "The fish was very fresh. We sat outside. There is something very uncomfortable about the ambience inside. It smells too fishy and stale."
    Dined on 7/7/2013
  • "Captain Brien's exceeded my expectations. From first looks, I figured this would be another "everything tastes the same and is frozen" sort of place. We were nicely greeted by one of two managers right off the bat. Our server was excellent, checking in on us the whole night and staying on top of refills and clearing plates. The food was fresh and flavorful. We had oysters, two of the combo plates, and a fresh fish dinner. Good portion size and good quality of food. We took home a few desserts, key lime pie and coconut cake. Both were excellent. If I had to be picky, my complaint would be the use of fake whip cream. Otherwise, good flavor and both moist and yummy. Would not hesitate to come back!"
    Dined on 7/3/2013
  • "My kids and I tried this restaurant. It was convenient to the Hilton and the menu sounded very appealing. We started with the lobster dip. It was not chunky and we didn't see any lobster in it. The chips were also soggy. The scallops were excellent. The grilled grouper was very bland. The broccoli was very tasty. The shrimp scampi was the biggest disappointment. The shrimp were large and looked delicious. It was overpowered with lemon and the pasta was mushy. My kids didn't want me to complain while I was there, but it was definitely a lot of wasted money. Also, service was extremely slow."
    Dined on 6/24/2013
  • "Captain Brien's was a fun place for a group dinner. The grouper was terrific and a favorite according to the waiter. All in our group thought the food was great."
    Dined on 5/15/2013
  • "We made a reservation for Captain Briens on a Saturday night. There was not any notification that outdoor seating would be the only tables available. There is a comedy show inside. Fortunately, the weather was good but I really didn't want to be outside. Our server was very nice but seemed to be overworked. She always said that she would be right back but it normally took 10 or more minutes for her to reappear. The menu has a variety of seafood choices and the prices are reasonable for the area. Our food was good but not great. I'd try it again but not on Saturday."
    Dined on 5/11/2013
  • "We had a great time here. I cannot find good seafood just anywhere, the server recommended a few dishes and i picked the grouper, usually grouper is not as fresh as i may want it to be but boy was this grouper fresh. I got it blackened and my boyfriend got it coconut style. holy cow what a great dish. Definitely recommend checking this place out!"
    Dined on 4/29/2013
  • "We came in yesterday for dinner and we liked it so much, that we are bringing some friends back this weeekend for the show. The server we had was so sweet, and so prompt. It took us a while to order because they have a gigantic selection of seafood! The way they decorated the entire place is really cool too! Unlike any other place ive seen. I loved it, can't wait to go back"

  • "Captain Brien's was a great find for my family and I. They have an extensive drink menu and the food was better than I expected. It has a spacious inside and ample outdoor dining space. Our waiter was not only incredibly polite and diligent but also adorable. I feel like our food took less than 10 minutes to come out and that included 3 entrees. There is a stage in there as well as it doubles as a comedy club. The hostess told me some pretty big names come here. I'll definitely be coming back to see a show soon-it's only about 30 min from Naples. Anyway, everyone should come here when on Marco! It's awesome!"
    Dined on 4/22/2013
  • "We stopped by for lunch and although the inside decor looked pretty neat, we decided to sit outside because of the beautiful weather. Very nice waitress with knowledge of the menu. We started with two dozen blue point oysters, and I really could of just had raw seafood for lunch, they were so good! I got the gulf coast chop salad with shrimp, and I'd go back for it again. My husband got the grouper sandwich and was very happy. We had a table of 6 and everyone left happy, which is always a rare but good occurrence. we will definitely be back next time we spend the day in Marco"

    Dined on 4/5/2013
  • "Dreadful food. Cheap ingredients, v small portions of the fresh fish, badly cooked, overpriced. Not one happy diner from our party of 8. V expensive. $400 for 2 families no desserts and only 3 starters. Really don't go it's terrible."
    Dined on 4/1/2013
  • "Our visit to Captain Brien's was a mixed bag. Sitting on the outdoor patio for a cool early April evening dinner on Marco Island was enjoyable. Our waitress provided very good service, being both polite and paying just enough attention to the needs of our table. What was lacking was the overall quality of the food; it was fair at best. We had three items from the menu and none were memorable. While we may give Captain Brien's another shot when we return to Marco, it'll be because of the fact that you can make a reservation and enjoy an outdoor table, not because of the food."
    Dined on 3/31/2013
  • "One of my all time favorite places on the island. We frequent this joint and always have such a good time, be it heading in for a few drinks, dinner or a show!"

  • "It was such a beautiful Florida day we decided to celebrate with a pina colada, decided to head to Capt. Briens. I've eaten there before but never gone there for just drinks. It definitely hit the spot. We could not pass up some guilty pleasure appetizers either of course, we had some onion rings and fried zucchini, both of which were delicious and crispy. Hoping to head back for a happy hour soon."
