This is a great restaurant the food was outstanding. Our waiter I believe his name was Matt I’m not sure he was excellent. He never rushed us and let us take our time and it was a pleasure to eat there. I would 100% return there when I’m in the area.

I had the halibut which was great as usual. Ribeye was very good as well. Really like the sauce on the shrimp and brussel sprouts. Sticky toffee pudding was wonderful.

Enjoyed! I love when I can find small hard working restaurants with good food- that are large enough to sit 200 but feel small enough to seem like you are the only two in the room!
Ps: their peach sangria is the best!

Cappy's is one of the best kept secrets in all of San Antonio. The food is amazing and delivered at a great value. It has been added to our periodic rotation of places to eat in the city.

A very pleasant evening despite the 90° weather outside of Cappy's. The outdoors area was quite comfortable. Staff were masked and tables well-cleaned though the tables were closer together than I would have liked.
Our server was outstanding!
We ordered two entrées to share, halibut and crabcake, both of which were well-prepared though neither are going to be remembered as special dishes to bring us back very soon. There were enough other items to try the next time.

I made this reservation on behalf of my boss to meet a business associate.

Upon his arrival checking in with the hostess she was unable to find the reservation I had made. He asked her to check their “Open Table” reservations whereupon she found the reservation.

Totally lame!! We shouldn’t need to tell the hostess where to look. This has happened to my boss many times before with his own reservations. Open Table is huge! The software used at restaurants should merge Open Table reservations so they have all reservations in one location. Otherwise, staff needs to be trained to look!!!!

Simply the best outdoor dining in San Antonio (and as good as any indoor fine dining experience as well). Very pretty, spacious outdoor patio under lights and beautiful old oaks!

This time we had some marinated tuna nachos -- fabulous and a delicious, spicy shrimp appetizer. Both amazing and reasonably priced. Usually have steaks or seafood but took he ravenously hungry option this time: those burgers are so good, high quality meats, and lots of fixings. And of course the service -- Dave took care of us -- is always sensational.

We come to Cappy's often -- they do a marvelous job.

Absolutely delightful! The Brussels Sprouts appetizer is amazing… totally different flavor! Crab cake was all meat… no filler! My friend said her Seafood Gumbo was delicious! We shared the Sticky Toffee Pudding and Raspberry Vanilla Bean Creme Brûlée … both wonderful! We each had White Peach Sangria … times 2! Olivia was our server and was precious! We will definitely go back… I’m sorry I’ve lived here since 2007 and have never been!

What a wonderful place!! From the host station to the wait staff, the service was terrific. The food was amazing. I enjoyed the Louie, poached eggs over crab cakes topped with a yummy hollandaise sauce. The brunch drink selection was fun and overall my group had a wonderful time.

My husband and I were visiting San Antonio and wanted to get away from the River Walk area, so we took an Uber to Cappy's, and it was a great experience! The food was delicious. The halibut was cooked to perfection, and the ribeye with marrow butter was tender and flavorful. The spring salad was fresh and crisp, and the chocolate cake was decadent. Best of all, the service was outstanding. Our server, Wesley, was delightful and made our dining experience special.
