Fantastic value! We met the owner few years ago and he even help with our daughter scholarship with the San Antonio Stock show and rodeo for young artists.
Delicious lobster scrambled eggs on Sunday morning and breakfast bread basket!

Cappy's is a delightful, cozy, warm hideaway where the food is guaranteed to be tasty, and the service will be gracious. It's great for a lunch or business date with its varied, healthful menu, for drinks and appetizers after work, for romantic dinners, family occasions and special Sunday brunches. Decor features local artists' works. I recommend it with enthusiasm.

On vacation in San Antonio. Found the restaurant on Open Table. We shared a very generous wedge salad. I had the lamb chops, very nicely prepared. My husband enjoyed the prime rib. The tub was quite nice and both meats were prepared to medium rare, as requested. Their key lime pie was lite, tart and a nice finishing to the meal.

My fiance and I went here for the first time, to celebrate our engagement and valentine's day over the long weekend. I was very impressed with the service, as my fiance worked with them on a special dessert option for my gluten and soy allergies, as well as a beautiful floral arrangement for our table. The staff is super attentive, thoughtful and kind - which exceeded all expectations! The food was amazing - perfectly cooked salmon and surf & turf - as well as excellent craft cocktails. I would love to come back to Cappy's again the next time I am in San Antonio!

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.
