I went to Cappys for the first time and enjoyed the most delicious brunch that I have ever had! I ordered the truffle eggs with lump crab topped with a lobster tail. Also, they give you these delightful sweet bread assortments upon arriving. Nothing was lacking and my experience was amazing! I wish I remembered my servers name, but she was friendly and accommodating. I will return and also recommend to friends and family.

Four totally different menu selections. Four totally happy people totally happy with their choices! We saw the mahi mahi special, chicken salad platter, and two variations of the chicken burger. As always, a fine experience!

Cappy’s is an old time favorite. A nice cozy atmosphere where you just feel comfortable being there. The food is always “spot on”, and the service is always excellent. It’s a special place that always excels at everything you expect from a great restaurant. It never disappoints.

This was our last meal in San Antonio before everyone returned home. It was our favorite meal by far! Our waitress was so friendly and gracious; the food was outstanding and we just had a lovely meal. Loved the "feel" of the restaurant and overall experience was rated as outstanding by everyone.

My mother and I went to Cappy’s last Saturday night to celebrate a belated Holiday dinner since she had been out of town. I was looking for a place with good atmosphere and a delicious Prime Rib. Cappy’s was great! It was busy but we had a nice table and our server was attentive and friendly. We were not rushed at all. The food was very good and the wine list had nice choices at a reasonable price. The atmosphere was lovely. I hadn’t been to Cappy’s in a while but we will be back!

The owner greeted us when we walked in. Table wasn’t quite ready but we went to bar area and were waited on immediately. Seated shortly there after. Waitress appeared immediately with water and the specials for the night. Good food, nice atmosphere and friendly people. All in all a nice NYE dining experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our brunch on New Year's Eve. Delicious food and great service. Wonderful cocktails. Try the Ranchhand Brunch dish. You won't be disappointed. Delicious polenta, pot roast, and bernaise sauce.

I EAT LUNCH AT CAPPY'S FROM TIME TO TIME BECAUSE THE FOOD IS UNIFORMLY GOOD, THE SERVICE IS OKAY, THE CLIENTELE ARE REASONABLY REFINED, AND IT IS ONE OF THE MORE CONSISTENT PLACES TO EAT ON THE NORTH SIDE OF SAN ANTONIO. QUITE RECOMMENDABLE!

The South Carolina Oyster Chowder evoked wonderful memories of Christmas Eve dinners with family years ago. The Salmon and Osso Bucco were savory, rich, and delicious. Our waitperson, Taylor, was cheerful, helpful, and very efficient. It was a lovely experience and a perfect Christmas Eve dinner. Thank you to Cappy’s for being open! Happy Holidays to all!

The Osso buco was a special dinner item and was wonderful. Paired it with their last bottle of Leviathan Cabernet. Both luscious. Scallops were perfectly cooked. Will assuredly go back.

Quite disappointed this visit - had reservation but wait was terminable - it was raining so I'm sure that affected things. My gumbo was very thick and unpleasant. (The muffins were good). Our server must have been new because she never refilled my guests water glass - I shared mine - and apparently forgot to place my cocktail drink order until 'duh'. We always go to Cappy's when in SA but might rethink it next time.

Sensational, as always. Creative and varied menu; frequent new items, seasonal and often locally based. This time we had a local antelope served as a type of schnitzel with a rich gravy. It was delicious, pared with a dark, rich draft beer. And the halibut entree was also excellent. Superb, personal service. As good an overall dining experience and good value as you'll find in San Antonio.

This time at the restaurant we sat upstairs and it was very noisy because there was a boisterous party there. Originally, it was very cold up there but eventually warmed up. The food is very good, but a little pricey.
