“Good times!”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

My wife and parents went shortly after the new ownership took over. Can't speak to the past ownership but this place was great. We each had something different and all the dishes were fantastic. The wait staff was very attentive and the meals arrived quickly and well prepared. In addition, the live music made for a great evening. If we are visiting Marco again we'll be sure to plan a visit for the music and/or the live comedy acts. Oh and the new owners clearly take pride in their restaurant stopping to visit with each table and ensuring folks are having a great time and enjoying their meals. Really great people!

“Great coconut shrimp”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

When a restaurant does great coconut shrimp, I'm a happy man. Captain Brien's was excellent. We visited early in our recent, first-time trip to Marco Island and thoroughly enjoyed our meal outside under the stars. Definately worthy of being placed on your list of restaurants to try.

“Great seafood restaurant”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

This restaurant is at a shopping/entertainment center, surrounded by other great local restaurants and such.
Very vibrant location. Went with family and friends.
Started with chardonnay, beer, calamari, fried zucchini, salad and coconut shrimp.
Then moved on to Shrimp scampi, Macadamia Mahi Mahi, house specialty grouper.
Finished with Molten Lava cake and key lime pie (very good).
Overall it was a happening place to be and we enjoyed the food.
Service was adecuate (it was very busy).
Been there a couple of times.

Great food, great drinks and great service. Found this gem our last day here. Wish we had found it sooner. Would have loved to check out the comedy night. Our server was so polite and recommended drinks that were fabulous.

“just so so”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

Service was not what it should be, restaurant was not crowded, but it seemed like they just catered to the locals, and not newcomers. Food was just so-so, not great.
