    The dishes were to die for. I loved everything on the menu! Unique and delightful tastes that all mixed well. The Gulf Shrimp Nachos were and amazing appetizer (more like ravioli than nachos), but a nice sized serving and they came out right away. The Halibut was delightful and perfectly cooked. And the Ribeye as especially tender and mouth-watering.

    Food was great but service felt rushed and then ignored. Not busy at all (which surprised me for a Friday afternoon) and multiple empty tables despite a fair amount of service staff around. Ordered coffee and presented with bill. Even tipped 25% and was never offered a top off for coffee nor ever saw our waitstaff again. Less than impressed.

    Been to Cappy's more than a hundred times and always had top-notch experiences...until now. Food was underwhelming especially three of our favorite stand-bys; wedge salad, which was watery and under-dressed (big no-no's for a wedge salad), crab cake was barely warm and nary a "lump" to be found and mac & cheese which, in no way or form lived up to the name, was bland beyond words. Service was just plain bad. Appetizer plates were not removed and crowded the table when our entrees were served. The waitperson asked me to keep the salad fork and seemed puzzled and put out when I asked for a new one. Heck, our menus and many of the plates and silverware were still on the table even as we paid our bill. We decided to not let this experience deter us from visiting again and we hope that this time was an aberration but we have come to expect WAY more. The next time will either make or break our love for this longtime favorite.

    The food is very much worth the cost. From appetizers to desserts, there wasn’t anything that we had that wasn’t delicious. The home made ginger ale was one of the best ginger ale I’ve ever tasted.

    I tell everyone I know that this is the best place in San Antonio for brunch. I only go for brunch so I can't comment on anything else but dinner is anything like brunch then it's a good deal. Quality food, excellent service and peaceful atmosphere. Until COVID I attended once a month for brunch. Thank you to the Lawton Family for such an excellent establishment.

    Mothers Day brunch, we had to add a last minute 5th diner, and had some mobility issues w my 94 year old father in law and they were very accommodating, giving us a bigger table, even on one of their busiest days of the year. Food is always excellent and staff and service is, as well. Cappy’s is our go to spot for all holiday, birthday celebrations. Even my siblings who live in Austin say it is there favorite restaurant and will come down on occasion just to eat at Cappy’s. Excellent. Can’t rave enough.

    I’ve never had a bad meal at Cappy’s. So, we go there almost every week. However, this time I decided to order something different….it was the Cobb Salad. It looked good, but it tasted like it was prepared hours earlier and put in the refrigerator. It definitely didn’t taste fresh. This is the first time I’ve been disappointed. I guess if you can’t make it to order, then it shouldn’t be on the menu.

    Our meals (fried shrimp, mahi mahi, crab cakes) were outstanding, with service to match. Friendly & attentive, without being overly casual. In short: professional. It was a wonderful evening (as always at Cappy’s) and we’ll look forward to the next time.

    Cappy’s is always great. We don’t go that many times per year but have been dining there since the mid 80’s. We chose outdoors to lessen the concern about COVID. It was a bit warm on the deck but they did have fans going and provided mini fans on the tables to lessen the annoyance of flies. Food, service, ambiance are always great. We had the Halibut and chef’s fish special and they were both outstanding. We recommend Cappy’s always!

    We were seated next to a very loud table, less than two feet away. They were so loud it spoiled the dinner. I couldn't hear the person next to me. A couple of other tables had to "cup their ears" and lean forward to hear their wait staff. We quickly ate and left. Caveat on recommending Cappy's: Never sit under the loft area. I would encourage anyone seated under the loft area and next to a loud table to ask to be moved. Or if the weather good asked to be seated outdoors.
