Our waitress was highly unattentive, which is weird as Cappy's ALWAYS has great service. She seemed rushed, would only listen to half our order and would walk away, was impatient to the point where our guests were commenting on it. Cappy's always has such great service and is such a consistently awesome restaurant in the hood that it surprised us.

Everything was great, but it was very noisy and someone had a loud ringing phone. I know you can’t control that.
We will eat at Cappy’s again! Waitstaff and manager were awesome! The chef went above and beyond, yesterday! Thanks so much!

Anniversary, even though my husband had died two weeks earlier. We had already planned on going to Cappy’s, so I kept the reservation and went with friends. The entire staff was so welcoming. Food was excellent, as always. I highly recommend it for any occasion.

We had a delightful meal, and we plan to return soon. This was my husband's first visit to Cappy's, and he was very impressed. His fried shrimp and oyster platter was impeccably prepared and very ample. We ate upstairs and enjoyed the quiet atmosphere. We're looking forward to another meal at Cappy's very soon.

Overall, everything was great. Went for Sunday brunch, and had a fantastic time. Only complaint with the food was the pancakes. Pancakes were cold, flat, firm and not very good; def overpriced or something was just off that day (everything else was perfect). Server wasn't very attentive either, the backup staff was at the table more then him. We were a 2-top (his smallest table), and he made it very apparent he was not going to be spending as much time with us, compared to the larger parties. However, I have had great service there before, I'd recommend the place and come back.

The food is fantastic and the service is wonderful. Everyone was attentive and accommodating. The truffle scrambled eggs was so good and a hit at the table but we still had a hard time deciding who had the best brunch plate because everything was delicious. This was my second time visiting San Antonio from NY and my second time at Cappy's. I plan to make Cappy's my go to restaurant in San Antonio.

Service and food were good. It is a bit pricey but we expected that. We chose to sit outside since we knew we would play cards with the other couple. Horrible mistake, we were attacked by mosquitos and requested to go inside. They have plenty of outdoor seating so they should probably consider some sort of bug repellent candles or lighting so it can be enjoyed.

I have been coming to this restaurant for over 34 years, and rarely have I had anything negative to say. The food is excellent, and each time I go, there is something new or different on the menu. The service was superb - attentive without being intrusive. One of my favorite places in San Antonio!

This was our first visit, but it won't be our last. Taylor, our server, was very attentive. When we had to change from the outside to inside she handled everything quite professionally. Everyone who worked there was cordial. The food came in a timely manner and was very tasty. We loved the fresh baked bread and the butter was soft (most establishment serve it to hard to spread). The choices on the dessert menu made it hard to choose, but we settled on the bread pudding and the peach and raspberry cobbler (yum).
I thought the menu was a little pricy, but that won't deter us from eating there again. My only complaint is that my husband ordered that coconut drink and it was mostly ice. The drink was delicious but we weren't about to pay $4.00 for another glass of ice. In all we were pleased when we left.

I made our reservation through Open Table and got right in. Mrs. Cappy was there on duty and made our check in go smoothly and get seated right away! We had breakfast dishes and they were very filling and scrumptious! Thank you for everything all the way down to the wonderful Bread Basket! Keep up the great work!

Food was the best in San Antonio consistently . I do not order fried food but the fried shrimp is amazing - lightly battered , fresh shrimp . Special Caprese salad with addition of hill country peaches and crispy basil was fantastic.

Cappy's never fails to charm its guests with warm greetings, attentive service and imaginative cuisine. We celebrated my husband's birthday last Saturday evening, and our time at Cappy's was joyful and delicious, from the appetizers to the dazzling desserts. We dined on an array of shrimp, oysters, Ahi tuna, grilled brussel sprouts, lobster mashed potatoes and sautéed garden vegetables, paired with lovely wines. We topped off the meal with a luscious warm bread pudding with bourbon sauce and a seasonal fresh peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream. The birthday celebration was a culinary perfection enjoyed by all.
