Food and service at Cappy's is always good - and the very best Brussels sprouts in town. Consistent quality is important and that is why we keep going back.

When I called in for reservations, I don’t expect to waited over 20 minutes to be seated. The problem could be that it was the lunch hour and Valentines Day. Food was excellent!!!

A great lunch celebrating Mother’s 96th birthday. She devoured her steak frites and our server Holly was wonderful and attentive. She brought a warm chocolate cake for us to all enjoy after the meal. Love Cappy’s!

We have eaten at Cappy's on several occasions, but our experience on February 13 was exceptional. From the shrimp nachos to the halibut, the food was the best ever. To top it off, our waiter, Alex, was attentive and friendly. Cappy's is our go to "special occasion" place.

I had been a Cappy's a few times in the past, not for several years. So I read on line reviews before I selected it for brunch.
Very nice brunch with 2 family members on a Saturday afternoon. I had a reservation for 12:30pm, but we were not seated until 1:05pm. Moderately noisy, but we were able to carry on some conversation.
Surprised and Disappointed that restrooms were still upstairs. I made it up there with my 2 knee replacements, but would have been nicer if on main floor.
Food and service outstanding.

I wish I remembered our waitress' name because she was phenomenal. She was attentive without being overbearing, she remembered the small things (like no salt on my bloody mary for each round) and was overall a really sweet person. Our water glasses were never less than half full. The food was delicious and came out quickly.

Love this place!

Thank you for excellent food and for NOT having music blaring. I could actually engage in meaning dialogue without having to yell over typical restaurant noise. Although reservations were running about 25 minutes behind, the food and experience was worth the wait.

Make sure to have the brussel sprouts and shrimp nachos. Totally spectacular!

I recently enjoyed brunch and decided to come back to Cappys immediately and bring a friend. The service was good but not as phenomenal as my first time around. Also I asked for toast and the first time I was not charged and this time around I was. I figured at 25 dollars a plate for breakfast, a few pieces of bread would not be a big deal. The food was still amazing and I imagine that I will return but maybe not as quickly as I did the first time!

Extraordinario lugar. Fui con mi esposa sin conocer el lugar y nos llevamos una grata sorpresa. Desde que llegamos nos recibieron muy sin esperar y cada plato fue una experiencia. Se notan los detalles en la preparación de los platos y el servicio de nuestra mesera fue muy bueno. Segúramente regresaremos. Es un gran lugar.

I love Cappy's and have been a customer for years, but sadly on my last visit we had a very unresponsive, almost condescending waitress. She made many missteps that night. For example, when she brought our dessert and we asked for a dessert spoon as our place setting only had a soup spoon she said we don't have smaller spoons. We said, not even a coffee spoon? to which she said yes we do have that and then she never brought it. Additionally, the fish dish I always have gotten in the past was not as good and the same was true of other dishes ordered for the table. Not sure if they have changed chefs lately but I won't be back for a while.
