A word from Cappy's Restaurant
This casual, upscale restaurant offers innovative American cuisine including the freshest seafood from the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic and Pacific, great steaks from Allen Brothers in Chicago, and regional and seasonal specialties. Daily lunch and dinner specials feature local ingredients whenever possible. The Heights burger can be paired with hand cut French fries, crispy thin onion rings, homemade lemon-pepper potato chips or German potato salad. There is an outdoor patio under a canopy of oak trees that's shady and extremely popular with locals and visitors to San Antonio. The brunch offered on Saturdays and Sundays features a menu of classic egg dishes, Texas pot roast, jumbo lump crab cake, seasonal "out of the blue" seafood entrees, entree salads, and Mustang chicken. Cappy's has an ever-changing, dynamic and well-priced wine list, with great choices by the glass or bottle. Full bar.

    My good Army friends took me to Cappy's years ago and I try to visit when I'm in San Antonio. Last week I made a trip with my husband and we had dinner with my very good friend who has recently moved to SATX from DC. We were very pleased with our meals (flounder and prime rib) and my husband said it was the best beef he's had in years. Thank You - lovely evening.

    Working backwards, we ordered two Sticky Toffee Puddings instead of one to share and well worth it. An excellent coffee. The Buttered And Bone Marrow Ribeye very good, locally raised...it's Texas! Diver Scallops, Potato Crusted Fish (Alaskan halibut) is very good. Other notables were the Endive Salad and Shrimp And Brussels appetizer. Very good selection of wines. Excellent service. Great to get away from the "downtown dining" and conventioneers, and where there's ample parking.

    When I planned lunch with friends I hadn't seen in 10-12 years, I immediately thought of Cappy's. It was everything I'd hoped for and more--impeccable service, wonderful food, San Antonio-style ambiance. Plus the on-line reservation system was convenient and trouble-free.

    My family and I first started eating at Cappy's almost 20 Years ago. It is incredible to me that they not only maintain their consistent great quality of food and service , but also continue to innovate and keep pace with SA's growing food scene. So many don't get it right, Cappy's always does.

    Great! We loved it. I had not seen my daughter in a long time. The atmosphere was fantastic. We stayed on the Riverwalk but found it too noisy and the food to be less than special. We loved the food, service and eveything about this restaurant. I definitely recommend to others, and I will be returning the next time I am in San Antonio.

    Had Sunday lunch at Cappy's. I can't believe I had never been here. The staff was attentive and quick. The food was delicious. There was a feel of having brunch after a regatta. Décor was not what you'd expect this far from the coast. The food was wonderful. Had the Heights burger medium, juicy and flavorful. Fries had a nice crunchy salt, maybe coarse sea or kosher. Wife had the crab cake which came with a nice dollop of guacamole. Wine was served at the perfect temperature both the white and red. It is definitely a place we will continue to go back. I want to try other items on their menu and want to review again. I'm sure it will not disappoint.

    Cappy's food is outstanding, something that might surprise people who know how long this venerable spot has been around. The flavor combinations are both harmonious and original, and the meat is cooked beautifully no matter what kind. The plating is attractive as well. The waitstaff make you feel well taken care of. Dining out can be hard with food allergies, but Cappy's has instituted an "allergy button" so that special needs plates are prepared in a separate area. We had a nut allergy and a gluten-free diner at the table and both needs were well covered. There is also a nice selection of wines.

    This was an unexpected find as we were in San Antonio for the weekend. Cappy's has a delightfully creative and tasty menu in an intimate old warehouse/barn in San Antonio. The chef's seafood special was a very creative take on Blue Marlin with Indian spices...I couldn't keep from mopping up the sauce with the fresh bread. Service was friendly, relaxed and attentive and kudos to our waitress who was well versed in the menu offerings and preparation - and very helpful
