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.

Three of us had a very nice lunch. We all had salads of fullerene ilks, and the we’re all quite nice. We were offered bread for the table, but didn’t get it until after our meals we’re served. The check came and I paid it; then a second check came that had our after-meal coffees. One check would have been nicer. So restaurant was very good; service — not so much.

We enjoyed well prepared brunch fare and fabulous service from Joe. My husband enjoyed the Eggs Commodore (perfectly poached eggs and delicious hollandaise!) and I was happy with the daily special that I ordered (herb crusted scallop citrus salad) but I thought that the portion size was quite small for the price. The basket of adorable, scrumptious, warm mini breakfast breads and accompanying strawberry butter is always a much anticipated Cappy's signature treat! The Cappy's front house staff is always so professional and hospitable and it's refreshing to see the owners and management checking on diners' satisfaction. Dining at Cappy's is always such a pleasure!

An out of town friend wanted to meet for dinner. I recommended our favorite SA restaurant- Cappy’s. We both were very happy with our entree’s and my friend wishes there was a Cappy’s in her home town

Can’t say enough about Cappy’s!

The Sunday Brunch is always a treat. The menu has a variety that should please everyone. The two items that we originally ordered were not available. We arrived at 2 pm, so this was understandable. The pot roast and the crab cake were delicious. I took 1/2 of the pot roast home for lunch the next day. We enjoy the basket of rolls and muffins which are available upon request.
Our server Ally was excellent. We will return to Cappy's soon for another great meal.

When you walk in and the hostess is fanning herself with a menu, you probably have a good idea that the AC is not functioning. Not sure if that was the case but it was not a cool temperature in the restaurant and two members of our party were not comfortable at all. Not a fan of the upstairs dining either and seems as if we are up there more than any other location. Brought out of town family in and was expecting our usual GREAT Cappy's experience and it just did not happen. We will be back but it will not be anytime soon.

Just great. Small place, good food. Most items run $16-25, but worth it for taste, execution and service. Best Eggs Benedict I've had in a long time, possibly ever. The Louie Benedict was awesome!

I took two business associates to brunch. They each ordered pot roast. It was greasy. My crab cake was warm- at best. For an eighty dollar brunch (we only drank iced tea and had no appetizers or desert), I’ll go elsewhere for my next brunch.

Poor quality of food. We always have to send food back when we go here. It is either poorly done, not hot, of low-quality, or not freshly made. It seems that most of their brunch items are held in a steam table and then served from there when the order comes in. For example, the spinach and artichoke omelet was Army green and looked like brownish-green puree of spinach sauce. One would expect fresh spinach to be used, but that is not the case. Also, hard to tell if there were artichokes in that sauce. The whole thing was some thick puree of spinach nastiness. My husband had the steak frites. A small hockey puck of tough filet arrived on a pile of cold frites. There was a disk of baked Parmesan cheese with this and a wilted half of a Roma tomato. Nothing was freshly made. Again, it looked like something you would get at a cheap cafeteria. Service is pleasant enough, but we always have to ask someone to locate our server. We waited 30 minutes for our bar order to arrive and our server was no where to be found.

As a regular Cappy's patron food and service are always at the top-end. Endive salad is the best! Would recommend catch of the day (out of the blue), AH burger or steak tenderloin. Can't go wrong. Enjoy!

We go out to the theater every month and have been searching for a go to dinner place to meet before the show. We may have found it. The staff, food and surroundings were wonderful. I did look for a quieter area to ask for next time, with no luck, it is far from a deal breaker. All in all a wonderful experience. We will return.
