Captain Marden’s Cod Squad food truck serves as a mobile extension of the Wellesley-based seafood brick and mortar restaurant, all originating from the Marden family’s great-grandfather, who founded the seafood business in 1945.
Beginning its food truck touring around Boston suburbs such as Natick, Needham, and Wellesley, the Cod Squad has since found devoted fans in the city streets of central Boston with its variety of fresh, in-season seafood.
And boy is there a variety - Captain Marden’s Seafood truck offers chowders with cornbread, lobster rolls, crab cakes, fried oysters, scallops, clams, salmon, and more! Chatting with Terri Beal, who is partnered with Keith Marden in running the Cod Squad, was a ball – Terri is great at making her customers feel welcomed.
The Captain Marden food truck has a mix of affordable dishes along with higher-priced meals you’d expect to find with quality seafood.
During my visit I had the delicious jambalaya – a heaping cup was $4 and it was very filling. Just the right amount of Louisiana shrimp, andouille sausage, rice, and spice!
With Go Fish food truck out of the picture, it’s up to the Cod Squad to fill in the empty seafood shoes. Grab a bite at Captain Marden’s Cod Squad truck next time you see them around Boston and are hankering for something from the sea – you won’t be disappointed!
