Had Father's Day brunch and the menu had several tempting entrees but the Pomard, scrambled eggs with truffles, crab, and lobster, was fantastic and a great value for what you get. Expect a whole lobster tail on top of the eggs. Their bread basket filled with miniature muffins, cornbread, and scones are especially delicious with their strawberry butter. We thoroughly enjoyed our brunch. I would recommend reservations in advance.

We had a fantastic experience. The brussel sprouts and shrimp appetizer was great. Foe entrees, I had a special of the day, a pork tenderloin with roasted street corn. My wife ordered the mustang chicken (recommended by a friend and the server). Both were amazing and we completely finished our plates. Our server was great and they also have a good selection of drinks that are different than you find at other places. We cannot wait to return to try other items.

What Cappy's has always had, it still has--great place for relatively quick meal; food is reliably good, sometimes very good; and a great place to run into friends and neighbors.

Reservation services are pretty good and reliable and your folks seem to want to provide good service.

I wish you guys could make outdoor seating in the summer more livable, with fans, misting or whatever. the outdoor area is a favorite unless beastly hot.

Once again, Cappy’s came through and I enjoyed a great birthday brunch. The salmon and kale salad combo was fabulous! Our server - Alex - was attentive and very professional. The support staff made timely visits and refills. Ali in all, a very nice way to dine! Thank you.

Alex was our incredible server. He made perfect recommendations and his service was among the very best I’ve had. The food was phenomenal and a must if you are in San Antonio! The grilled oysters and shrimp nachos were my favorite. They also have the best sticky toffee pudding I’ve ever tasted.

We've been going to Cappy's for years for the great food and service. This experience was different on many levels, and one that was unique to this brunch.

We booked on Open Table. We were given a table midway through the restaurant, but as my mother slowly approached with her walker, we were abruptly moved to a different table in a curt and unfriendly manner to a table by the busy entrance. The reason given was they had a large party coming that required space, which we found to be untrue as the original table remained as it was and other tables were moved to accommodate the larger party. What they really meant was, and I would have appreciated a modicum of honesty, was my mom was creating a certain problem for them and they wanted to get her closer to the exit.

Our server was efficient and as friendly as possible to turn the table as fast as possible. We were not overtly rushed, but the lack of service and the demeanor in which it was offered told us the story.

We have been patrons of Cappy's for as long as I can remember, and this is the first time we have felt we were unwelcome and a burden.

My boyfriend and I came to Cappy's on Sunday night of Memorial Day weekend (2018). We didn't plan our trip very much but were able to get a reservation for 7pm only a few hours in advance. The items on the menu looked pretty conventional at first glance, but they are actually prepared in very creative and thoughtful ways - perfectly executed. The ambiance was perfect, very nice and quiet with a tastefully rustic feel, and the noise level was not bad at all - it was easy to have a nice conversation at sane decibel levels. The service was timely and very friendly. The bread was fresh and warm. Would definitely recommend!

Hostess took us to the stairs to seat us upstairs without asking if upstairs was ok. My friend who was dining with me struggled to climb the stairs - she is having a hip replacement in 4 weeks. When senior citizens come to dine it would be a thoughtful gesture to ask if stairs are a problem. The hostess told me that I should have made that request when making reservations & proceeded to show us to an upstairs table. Very uncaring attitude.

I had the ribeye steak with couscous. The couscous was crunchy and difficult to eat with my cracked tooth. I ordered it, because I assumed couscous would be soft. Not sure if it was undercooked or suppose to be that way. The favor was good, I just couldn't eat it. The steak knives were not very sharp. I had a hard time cutting the steak. I used my butter knife to show my husband how dull the knives were, as the butter knife cut similarly. The steak was cooked perfect, tasted wonderful. They simply need to sharpen their knives. I asked for a second knife, but it wasn't better. We ordered the shrimp and brussel sprout app and it was fabulous. My husband had the salmon and he said it was great.

Wonderful meal, excellent wait staff and the entire team was so accommodating. We grew from a party of 6 to 8 people and they were most helpful in making sure we had a good experience. They even lent me a shawl when I discovered I had left mine at home.

Food wise they cooked my lamb chops perfectly and my husband’s ribeye as well. He lived the bone marrow butter. If we return to San Antonio we will definitely go back!
