Appetizers were served cold when they should’ve been served warm. Service was mediocre. We couldn’t get our drinks refilled. The demi-glaze on the beef tenderloin was awful. My family wouldn’t finish theirs. We aren’t going back.

Very enjoyable meal. Had been about 5 years since our last visit there. Much more casual than we recalled. Friendly staff. Pimento cheese fritters appetizer was excellent. Mahi mahi and crab cake entrees were delicious. The only little quibble I had, which I’ve noticed over the years at other restaurants booked through OpenTable, is being seated in less than desirable tables or high traffic areas. Otherwise, a delightful way to celebrate our anniversary.

First time here. Menu looked very good. Heard the specials and had to have one of those!
Burger and swordfish were great. Try the Brussel spouts! Coconut cream pie is piled high with whipped cream and very good. Their sticky bourbon cake is rich and shareable too.
We will be back to try the next item on the menu!

Matt, my main waiter, is the best there can be. He along with the others assisting him made sure my burger was literally perfectly well-done. Not easy! As usual, Cappy’s remains my choice fir a loveky, relaxing and pleasant duning experience.
Cocktails are superb in potion, portion and presentation as well.

The fresh catch special was a disappointment. The Barramundi was undercooked and therefore difficult to cut, and while fresh, it is not a great fish to eat as sushi. The wine menu for by the glass was lacking as well. Great service and ambiance though, so 4 stars.

Cappy s can’t be beat for a quality restaurant that provides a fairly priced menu and ambiance and service to complement your experience. But, be sure to make a reservation. Little chance of getting seated without a long wait if you are a wali-in. We were seated immediately upon arrival 10 minutes before our reservation time.
HIGHLY suggest the Crab Cake accompanied by a very unique salad. House chardeney a good wine to go with that wonderful meal.

So glad to make it back into Cappy's! This was my first post-covid visit and the service and food were as wonderful as ever! I enjoyed brunch with a friend and a couple who were celebrating their wedding anniversary . I mentioned the occasion in my reservation notes and there was a "Happy Anniversary" card waiting for us at the table! Such a lovely, thoughtful touch which the young couple truly appreciated! Our server, Naomi, gave fabulous service. She was most efficient with drink orders/refills, answering questions (and finding out the answers to anything of which she was uncertain) and accomodating special requests. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals... brussels sprouts (we actually went through 3 shared orders because they are just that good!), a crabcake with salad, eggs sardou, eggs Louie and the poblano shrimp omelette, which I can personally vouch for and highly recommend. The omelette featured perfectly cooked and seasoned eggs, shrimp, creamy avocado and a decadent poblano cream sauce which took the dish to another level. Naomi surprised the Anniversary couple with a complimentary dessert. They chose the key lime pie and loved every bite. Cappy's is a great choice for a quality meal with outstanding customer service and consistently delicious food in a relaxed, comfortable, cozy atmosphere. I look forward to my next meal at this San Antonio gem! (and more brussels sprouts!)

This is a great restaurant the food was outstanding. Our waiter I believe his name was Matt I’m not sure he was excellent. He never rushed us and let us take our time and it was a pleasure to eat there. I would 100% return there when I’m in the area.
