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.

I hadn't been to Cappy's in several years, but I remembered it as being an outstanding restaurant. More than once, I've returned to old restaurants that did not live up to my memories, but Cappy's lived up to it and more. Every single bite was delicious, from salad to main to dessert. Service was top notch, thoughtful and friendly. I don't plan on letting so many years go by before visiting again!

No matter how often I go to Cappy's for a meal I am never disappointed. Everything from appetizers to desserts is always great. This time there were a few new additions to the menu, which was nice.

Celebrated a successful meeting with brunch on the patio. Food excellent as always; our server Bryan was a gem and made sure we knew we could relax with our drinks on the patio even though they were closing between brunch and dinner. BTW...the best French 75s in San Antonio.

We had the potato crusted halibut and a special for the evening , the paella. Both were superb. We don’t live here but every time we visit we come to Cappy’s. We’ve been coming here for about 17 years since our daughter introduced us when she was attending Trinity; and unlike most restaurants that lose their way over the years, Cappy’s just keeps getting better, even when there’s so little room for improvement. You can have a conversation here without raising your voice, but the vibe is still lively enough. The wines are great. I tried the Head High Pinot noir this time, and it was quite lovely. Note to real estate agents: we were here looking for a house, and one of the reasons we like San Antonio so much is because of Cappy’s!

The shrimp is the best I took my sister for the first time and she just couldn’t say enough about the food she sent me a text on Monday from work and said she was still thinking about our Sunday lunch at Cappy’s

There were 4 in our dining party. My wife and I ordered the fried shrimp and oyster dinner. Our food was delicious. The two other members of our group ordered ribeye steaks. Their meat was tough and was sent back. Cappy's was gracious about preparing an alternate meal for these two. The replacement meal was prepared quickly and was a satisfactory replacement for the steaks. It was a disappointment that high dollar steaks were inedible, but the meal ended well.

We ate here with our family, including 3 teenagers, while visiting over the Winter Holidays. The food was amazing! The staff was attentive and everything was top-notched. The server went out of our way to make sure we were accommodated and welcomed. The News Years Eve Oysters were the best we’ve had! We would eat here again if we were to return to SA!

Whenever we are in San Antonio, we include a meal at Cappy's. The atmosphere is welcoming. The art on the walls changes often. The food is always delicious and dependable. Service is attentive without being hovering. Love this place- especially when it is nice enough to eat on their lovely patio.

What a lovely evening! This was a perfect location to celebrate a 70th anniversary. Cappy’s accommodated the guest number changes and when the guests of honor forgot about the lunch, Cappy’s quickly rescheduled a for dinner.

I had high expectations and they were not met. Food was OK, not great. Chicken-fried quail was over seasoned and could have been any type of poultry. Why not grill it instead so it doesn't taste like a petite chicken? Delicious gumbo dinner is the reason I give Cappy's 3 stars instead of 2. Service started off well, but then waiter disappeared. If the prices were similar to its sister restaurant (La Fonda), I would recommend, but both food and service at Cappy's should have been so much better.

Cappy's is a good place to go for dinner, drinks or just a bite. The bar next door offers the opportunity to enjoy a before-dinner drink at the main restaurant. If you visit on Saturday try the Prime Rib or the chicken for the main course and the pate for an appetizer. The wines served by the glass are excellent, especially the blends or cabs from California.

Service is cordial & professional.
