Our salmon & magi-magi were delicious! The Carpe Diem Chardonnay paired perfectly with both. Joe, our waitperson, was attentive and very helpful in selecting the wine & the main course. A lovely evening. Thank you!

Chicken-fried quail was delicious special! Always enjoy dining at Cappy’s. One of the most consistently tasty restaurants in San Antonio.

Our family of five had a Sunday brunch reservation to celebrate a birthday. We were greeted warmly and sat promptly. Joe was our server and made our dining experience fantastic - very attentive, accommodating to a couple of changes due to health restrictions and offered great recommendations for trying a new combination on one of our plates.

The variety of small house scones and muffins with the delicious berry infused butter steals a foodie’s heart. The Homard style eggs were on point with a delicious lobster tail. The crab cake dish as well as the Ranchand egg dish with the pot roast that melts in your mouth were delectable. Lastly, their peach flavored mimosa and the bread pudding making a perfect finish to a great meal.

We make our way to Cappy’s every other month or so. It never disappoints. Had the mussels with the soup of the day. My wife chose the excellent crab cakes. Highly recommended for the consistency and excellent menu.

The management and staff at Cappy's are second to none. They truly understand the value of hospitality and they all work together to give you an exceptional experience. The food is reliable and always tasty. You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Great for families!

I wish that my experience was better here, but I was unimpressed. The food was mediocre, the waitress rarely came by, and we sat upstairs which was nice, except that the bathrooms were located upstairs and the floor shook any time someone was walking.

The food was overpriced for what you received and the little pastries/muffins had lint in them. We did not express our complaints in the restaurant, because we didn't want to seem rude, but overall, the experience wasn't good and I would not return or recommend to anyone.

The food and service at Cappy's restaraunt was absolutely phenomenal! We just recently moved to SA, and wanted to try a nice restaraunt that was not a chain restaraunt. Cappy's definately exceeded our expectaions. My husband and I have added this restaraunt to our five star list!

We always enjoy Cappy’s. Food excellently prepared. Desserts and apps are inspired (we had the special cobbler, toffee pudding cake, and the shrimp-poblano nacho app). Ambience perfect. Service good.

VERY small by-the-glass wine list.

Ribeye was excellently cooked and seasoned, but the steak itself had more fat than meat to it (not marbling).

Great place for a celebration, though and service and environment keep us coming back.

I love this restaurant but I've been disappointed with one particular dish : Steak Frites . If you order this dish you'll get a plate full of grossly over salted fries with SMOKED grilled tenderloin dumped on this bed of inedible fries , dripping juices on them and making them even more disgusting. On top of it lay big parmesan chip. Bad food , bad presentation , no imagination !.
When I told a waiter about fries being greatly over salted he brought me a huge bowl of fries with no salt whatsoever. My husband gave me half of his food and ate my meat . The waiter did not offer any solution to this disaster except bringing bad fries again. This restaurant should be more sensitive to customers needs and bring better options to the menu.

Rob our waiter was awesome. He really set the tone for the whole experience. The crab cake was the best I have ever had. The Walnut endive salad was to die for. I ordered the Ribeye with bone marrow butter medium rare and you nailed it. My wife ordered the Mahi and it was perfect. The only thing I might change would be to offer a prime ribeye and a sharper knife. Overall, my wife and I were extremely pleased and will definitely be back.

Excellent service at all levels. As we sat on the deck waiting for the restaurant to open, a Cappy's employee came out to ask if we would like some water while we waited. A very pleasant surprise!

We have been to Cappys on several occasions. The service is excellent. the atmosphere is casual and friendly. Our personal selections were okay, but not special. Solid food, good convenient location and the traveling Art Show, which changes, every six weeks is always interesting to see new and experienced artists works on display.

Cappy’s our go-to spot for family dining. We dine at Cappy’s every other month.
They are always accommodating to my parents who are older and our toddler-aged daughter. I can’t say enough good things about the food and service. A must for brunch or any meal you are enjoying with family/friends.
Thank you again for a wonderful experience.

Being able to get a reservation the same day was amazing. From the second we walked in, the staff were attentive and friendly. I tried the commodore eggs Benedict and the spinach artichoke one and both were exceptional and cooked perfectly. Definitely will be going again!
