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.

Cappy’s is horrible about honoring its reservation. Several times I have made a reservation and seated late. This Sunday was no exception. My reservation was at 1:15 check in at 1:13 pm was net seated until after 1:30. The hostesses are poor at managing tables

As always, we had a very enjoyable brunch. Food reliably excellent.
We had a special treat this Sunday, we had the great fortune to have April as our server. What an incredibly pleasant, upbeat young lady. Delightful!

Our meal was excellent, especially the Mexican cheese sticks they were offering as an appetizer that night. I had the Mustang Chicken and it was outstanding. Our waitress was especially attentive and she was subtly always present which is so nice and refreshing. I wish I could remember her name. Wonderful ambiance and the artwork was lovely.

Every time I go to Cappy's I always have a wonderful time. This time my server wasn't too attentive however, I will still go back.

When we got there, I asked my husband to order me a beer and I went off to the restroom. This is typical when we get to any restaurant. When I get back to the table, my husband (41) tells me that the server refused to bring us beers unless I (39) am at the table as well. I’m slightly dumbfounded by this. This type of policy is consistent with a sporting event or concert, but not at a supposedly fine dining restaurant. When I ask the server about it, I was berated about how she could be fired and the restaurant could be shut down! Whoa! Slow your roll there! A little dramatic for this early in the night. If you brought a beer and then noticed I looked young, you could always card me! I’m not going anywhere sport! Out of the hundreds of restaurants my husband and I have frequented, we have never encountered this scenario.

We changed sections and got a very sweet and excited server. The food was ok, and her service was much more customer service oriented.

If this is a strict policy, it really makes me question the caliber of the typical patronage, and therefore i will not return.

Enjoyed a nice lunch with a nice menu, attentive service, and excellent food. I had the burger which was wonderful. Companion had soup of the day and salad, and said they were great. We were looking for a place to have a quiet conversation in nice surroundings and it fit the bill perfectly.

My wife loved it. I am a little more adventurous and it wouldn't be my first choice. If you want a traditional American surf n turf experience, then you will love it.

The food was very good. Cappy's was quite busy and the waitstaff had more to do than they could handle in a timely manner, so the wait for our order and the check were longer than I would have hoped. They did the best they could considering the ratio of diners to help. I had the mussels and they were the best I have had in a very long time. The Halibut was also cooked perfectly. We will go again soon. I hope they have an extra person or two helping move the service a little faster. Cappy's is a good restaurant with consistently good food.

Disappointed because of all the positive reviews. Nothing more than a neighborhood restaurant with decent food, dated decor, older crowd and average service.

Perfect place for a date or celebration. Lovely atmosphere, great food and service. It’s a bit tucked away so you can miss it if you’re not looking for it, however everything was top of the line and the dessert is heavenly.

Cappy's is one of our favorite restaurants. Their Tenderloin Diane is fabulous! My husband ordered the steak dinner special and my in-laws ordered the Mustang Chicken. Every dish was spot on! Don't miss the bread and butter - so good! Bell took excellent care of us and it was a great dining experience.

Remains our favorite lunch. Innovative special dishes with a wide selection. Favorites are the fried shrimp with a side of Brussels sprouts. Never like Brussels sprouts until Cappy's.
