This is our absolute favorite restaurant in San Antonio! My only compliant is that we asked for a table where it would be quiet since one of the guests was hard of hearing. It was early in the evening and not crowded. The hostess put us at a table beside the bar with the bartender blending and shaking ice most of the evening. Ally was our server and very friendly and knowledgeable with the menu and the wine list.

We have visited Cappy's for over 20 years and have always enjoyed the delicios food, excellent service and friendly atmosphere. I recall going to Cappy's or Earl Abel's after the Majestic Theatre many times over the years as they were the only nice places for desert or a beverage at that hour.

Really enjoyed dining a Cappy's. Waiter was terrific. Food was great. Especially enjoyed the ambience and low noise level allowing us to converse during our diner. We arrived earlier than our reservation time and the staff was accommodating. We appreciate that and will visit again soon.

This has got to be one of my favorite restaurants in San Antonio. The atmosphere is so inviting and the beautiful art on the walls (which is for sale) is amazing. The food is outstanding, drink selections and wine list can't be beat. Whether you are looking for a dressy or casual place to dine you can't go wrong with Cappy's. I can see why they have been in business so many years....everything is flawless!

Cappy’s is one of our favorites and we weren’t disappointed. The food was every bit as good as before and the wait staff did an excellent job I will say they fell a bit short on being able to offer Gluten Free choices but they say they’re working on it. The noise level is higher than I’d like but it’s probably just my sensitive hearing.

The restaurant was great except for the noise. As an interior designer, you need baffles in the ceiling and perhaps some fabric panels on the windows to absorb the noise. I noticed that you do have fabric absorbing material under the table tops which is a good idea but is not enough.

I could to hear the people at my own table.

We visit San Antonio a few times a year and Cappy's is always on my list of places to dine (so is La Fonda, another of their restaurants). The service is very good and the food is delicious! We have been there for dinner and brunch and lunch - all menus are imaginative and fairly priced.

Sunday night dinner with faboulous service from Taylor! (I was having one of those "I can't decide what I want to eat" evenings and I kept vascilating between menu items...Taylor was so patient, understanding and helpful while I waivered over the decisions). I was very happy with my ultimate choices. The shrimp nachos were very well seasoned and bursting with flavor from the spicy shrimp and tangy cheese over the paper thin but crip house chips (I always have a hard time sharing these!) My husband went with Cappy's famous Mustang Chicken and I opted for the mussels (and substituted sauteed spinach for the frites). I have had Cappy's mussels on previous occasions but I can honestly say that tonight's batch was the best that I have tasted. The sauce was so flavorful (I added my sauteed spinach which was a delcious combo!) and the plump mussels were perfectly cooked. We finished with the dreamy, decadent coconut cream pie and a robust black coffee for me and affogato for my husband....lovely endings to another lovely meal at Cappy's!

We were very pleased with this restaurant. There were definite regulars dining here and generally an older crowd. It is hidden behind Cappyccinos coffee shop, but has 2 floors of indoors dining and an outdoor patio which we chose. Fresh bread was very good and so was our salad, which they split for us to share. My prime rib entree was a bit disappointing, but the lamb chops with creole mustard glacé and roast potatoes was delicious! The cocktails were also good. We could see why it is a local favorite spot.

We travel to San Antonio every year headed to South Padre, we live in New Mexico. One reason we stay in San Antonio is so we can eat at Cappy's. The food is wonderful, the only thing is, the noise level is very high. I know there is nothing to be done about that, but is it distracting to say the lest. Our service was good, but not at the level it usually is. We had a 8pm reservation, and our server was super busy, but I noticed a lot of servers leaving around 8:45. It seems to me, if our server was so busy, and others were leaving, someone could have helped her out. But, maybe it was just a bad night. Again, we love this place.

Was looking for a “local” restaurant to take customers and found Cappy’s on Yelp. Booked it based on the reviews, and was not disappointed. Staff provided excellent service, and our waitress Lindsay was the best!

We dined on a Saturday night, two people got the Prime Rib-outstanding flavor and fully satisfied. One person got the mussels, had to be 2 lbs!!! Shared amongst everyone, delicious flavor and freshness. I had the “out of the blue” special-Cibola(sp?)- meaty, firm , fresh- delicious! Just as described.

You must try the shrimp nachos!!!! We could have ordered those for our meals- fresh made in house, the base was thin and crispy, shrimp fresh, and the cheese/ Chile topping complimented the base and shrimp fantastically.

Desserts! Oh my. Coconut cream pie-sweet, and delicious. Key Lime pie-tart sweetness-fantastic. Berry creme brûlée was made to perfection-fresh berries complimented the dish perfectly.

Highly recommend Cappy’s, I know it will be a go to every time I’m in San Antonio!

This was my third visit to Cappy’s and it just gets better every time..... I was there for a birthday treat and the staff went to the trouble to bring us out cake with a candle on top, very nice touch. My son and daughter in-law who had never been before enjoyed the experience too, looks like Cappy’s has two more new customers now....... lovely evening ......
