They do not take Open Table Coupons....wish I had know before asking and being told no at the table in front of friends. I always enjoy the restaurant but thought this was not good PR.

Good place to eat but not a 5 star restaurant. We were approached quickly after we first sat down and received our appetizers fairly fast, but it appeared that the waitress forgot about our food and didn't recognize that it was missing until the neighboring table (seated after us ) received their food. I ordered the jumbo scallops that were good, but it seemed that it had sat and gotten a little cold. They do have an interesting assortment of beverages if you are a non-drinker. Overall it was a good reasonably priced restaurant.

This is probably the most reliable restaurant in San Antonio. We’ve been coming here for over 20 years and it’s consistently excellent.
A nice touch is that the art changes once a month, so while the food remains the same, the art provides constant change.
A clever solution to keeping the “standard” fresh.

One of my favorite cheeseburgers in town. I love that it’s in my neighborhood and I love the way they change the art inside. Do not ask or expect any substitutions of menu items because they are almost militant in their refusal to make exceptions to anything on the menu.

As usual, we had a very nice evening at Cappys. Alex, our server was very informative and helpful as we worked our way through the menu. The Chef did a great job of creating a meal with many good flavors and great ingredients. We often recommend Cappys to our friends for a lovely dining experience.

Eat at Cappy's often and have done so since it opened. It's in the neighborhood, has good food and is always a good experience. Would make one suggestion and that is to take steps to make it less noisy considering the many older customers come there often.

Cappy's is the type of restaurant most of us look high and low for, and it is right here in San Antonio on Broadway. The food is always very good, with specials ranging from prime rib to seafood from the coast. The service is top-notch and management is always checking in to make sure each table, each customer is happy as can be. On top of it all, the owners are incredibly generous to the community.

Love love love Cappys. Good is always great, atmosphere is cozy, service always good. The design/decor is in good taste. The only suggestion I have is that for such a nice restaurant, I would think they would have nicer outdoor furniture. The plastic tables and chairs kills the vibe, cheapens it.

We went to Cappy's for the first time on the recommendation of friends to celebrate my wife's birthday. We we're both pleased overall, although the people at the next table we're a bit loud for an early dinner crowd.

We liked the casual atmosphere and neighborhood accessibility.

We would recommend Cappy's to a friend.

Consistently the best food in SA. Great,helpful, friendly service. Jewel of a restaurant. Skuna Bay salmon with mashed potato’s a personal favorite. But honestly never had a bad meal. And the key lime pie is the best anywhere. But the sticky toffee pudding and warm chocolate cake is right up there,too. All around incredible restaurant!

Not up to its usual standards. Waitress was fair and did keep coming b. Had to ask for ice tea refill and got it with no ice. Then had to ask for more ice as tea was warm. Had pot roast which was good but plate had mashed potato and vegetables just piled on. Not very appetizing. Food was semi warm but not hot. Usually give them a 5 but today was only a 4.

We were visiting San Antonio for the weekend and feel very lucky that we found Cappy's on Open Table. We sat on the patio and thoroughly enjoyed everything about the experience. Our party shared gumbo, crab cake and mussels. Everything was very well prepared and attentively served.
