Contemporary American
This casual, upscale restaurant offers innovative American cuisine including the freshest seafood from the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic and Pacific, great steaks from Allen Brothers in Chicago, and regional and seasonal specialties. Daily lunch and dinner specials feature local ingredients whenever possible. The Heights burger can be paired with hand cut French fries, crispy thin onion rings, homemade lemon-pepper potato chips or German potato salad. 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.

Normally, I love Cappy's. This brunch however, left something to be desired. Our server was not pleasant - she seemed extremely bothered by something, which I took personal offense to, as it seemed her issue was with our group, and not the other tables she was assisting in our section. Perhaps it was form of personal discrimination, perhaps she was not well rested, in any case, that is not my problem to infer as a guest who was there to enjoy quality time and food with my family. As someone familiar with food services, bottom line, it is a service industry - you are only as good as the people you tend to agree you are. In this case, Cappy's did not live up to the standard of service I have become accustomed to.

Maggie was our waitress. I thought she was rude and had an attitude. She had the nerve to call me bossy. I was not but was responding to questions. Excuse me, I am the customer and should be treated with respect no matter what you think.
The food was not up to Cappy’s standards. The mustang chicken was burnt, the mussels sauce was salty and the fries were without flavor.
This truly was not a typical Cappy’s experience and it was for a birthday celebration.

Easy to make reservations, our server was very helpful and knowledgeable. Food is consistently well cooked and the side dishes always compliment the entree. Cappy’s is one of our favorites.

Cappys is a great place to good you're looking for semi upscale dining experience in San Antonio. The food is fantastic especially their signature dish "mustang chicken" I highly recommend this restaurant if you are ever visiting the Alamo City.

Food was amazing and our waitress April was awesome! She brought our 18 month old the best bowl of watermelon and it made her whole night! We wish we had a Cappys in Fort Worth but this is our favorite in San Antonio!

Great service and delicious food. My husband described the steak as being like butter. The sticky toffee pudding is a must. The ice cream and sauce are not needed. It was hot and gooey and so full of flavour

Cappy’s is my go to place for fresh fish! Always fresh, cooked to perfection, and delicious 😋 . Katy was such a friendly waitress and efficient. Cream Brûlée had the sugar glazed crunch expected that cracks when you tap it with your spoon. Just what makes this light dessert wanting more. We will be back again and again!

Usually a good experience. Last week was a bad experience. The menu items that made it a bad experience were the tenderloin special and the steak frites. The tenderloin on both plates tasted spoiled or too old to serve. Maybe a bad marinate . The meat was served raw on one plate that was supposed to be medium rare. Most of the sides were good. The broccoli on the chicken salad tasted terrible. Maybe it was the sauce.
The deserts were good. The service was good. Overall disappointing.

Cappys is the quintessential San Antonio experience in the heart of Broadway and Alamo Heights. The food is fresh, creative and well-served with experienced and helpful staff. They care about their customers and it shows from Cappy, Suzy, and Trevor and all the team.

We live about 45 minutes from the restaurant. So a bit of a drive. But when the wife and I want a nice dining experience, we drive into town and enjoy Cappy’s. We invited some good friends to join us for some thing a little special. Cappy’s did not disappoint. Wonderful food. Great service by Ally. Great wine selection. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Actually a ‘Six Star’ experience.
