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.

    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.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 8/22/2014
    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

    On arrival the hostess advised us that our reserved table was ready with menus on the table, however did not take us to the table which was very unusual??? Server and food were great with excellent recommendations provided. I would dine here again if I am visiting San Antonio.

    I took my nephew Marty Gibby from Atlanta and my friend John Castellanos from California (Actor from Young and the Restless) here doing a film to lunch and they had the Mustang Chicken, I had the Crab Cakes, the food was exceptional and the service superb. Our waiter was right on top of everything without being intrusive. The table we were seated at was not to my liking as it was by the cash register and I had made a reservation the day before but we soldiered on and it was all in all the best food I have had lately and I eat out 4-5 times a week. I unfortunately do not live near Cappy's or I would live there at lunchtime!

    This was our second time to visit for Brunch and had a reservation, however, we were told that they were running behind and the area we requested was not available. They then asked if we would like to be seated in a very heavy traffic area, we agreed, and then noticed 2 tables in our requested area. We are still new to the menu and ordered the Sunday pot roast and the crab cake. The crab cake was a total disappointment. It is extremely small and was over cooked charred on both bottom and top. The crab was almost non-existant. To make matters worse, we were seated next to the stairs and experienced heavy traffic the entire meal. Our waitress was MIA. We had to request the hostesses to refill our drinks and request bread 4 times.

I enjoyed my halibut and my husband enjoyed the prime rib. The salads were delicious and the wine list had a nice variety and price range. Our server was very attentive. We will go back!

    The menu has changed since we last dined at Cappy's. I ordered Scottish salmon, mashed potatoes and vegetables. The selection was served in a pasta or soup bowl, stacked on top of each other with the salmon being on top. I couldn't cut the salmon as it was emersed in the potatoes which were watery because of liquid from the salmon and vegetables. I gave up aafter 3 or 4 bites and went home hungry. Expensive meal to leave uneaten.

    Finding a restaurant in San Antonio where the variety of dishes and culinary quality are at this level is a rare thing indeed. I took my wife there for our anniversary and the experience was outstanding. The staff was attentive and prompt. The manager was accommodating and conscientious. The decor was pleasant, and the chef was phenomenal. The menu was diverse and sophisticated, with a comfort quality to it. Great balance. Please check this spot out! You will NOT regret it!

    What a great birthday lunch! My chicken salad with fresh fruit and mango gelatin was absolutely delicious, and my husband's steak was excellently executed-cooked perfectly, with frites that were the real thing. The special bread also made it hard to leave room for dessert, but we managed-an outstanding chocolate cake with ice cream! James was very attentive and made sure everything was special. We can hardly wait to return for a romantic dinner!!!

    Thanks to our OpenTable reservation, we were seated immediately in a thoughtful area for our party of six. Our waiter was patient and friendly and allowed us to take our time and enjoy a pleasant evening meal with our out of town guests. The food was especially delicious and our guests were so pleased that they commented that Cappy's is their favorite place for dinner when they visit.

    Cappys has continuously evolved with time to continue its wonderful culinary offerings. Pot Roast and burgers are wonderfully savory and a favorite. Their seafood offerings are prepared to perfection! And their salads are always pleasantly fresh. Of course their signature chocolate cake and the bountiful dessert offerings are always a nice way to end the meal. Aside from the meal, the service and ambiance just completes the whole experience. Highly recommended and very accomodating for gluten free alongside other dietary restrictions.
