Charming slice of history or biggest scam ever? Can't decide

By now you know the premise: take a boat ride to a small island where an old (and I mean OLD) rum-runner's shack (and I mean SHACK) has been converted to a restaurant. The boat ride was fun and charming. Then we arrived and I was dumb-struck. We found 2 shacks -- one the bar, and one the restaurant... read more

$38 fresh fish entries, $36 crab cakes, all reasonable EXCEPT while not bad neither was it exceptional or even particularly good. Food theme was while cooked ok very bland whether crab cakes or yellow tail. Kind of "MEH". Crab cakes had good crab but seemed to be mixed with bread filler (think stoffers stufifing) and mush for crust. Yellowtail smalll... More

Liked the novelty of taking the boat out to the restaurant and then being able to walk around the island. Did not like the incredibly over-priced entrees.

From the time you park and take the ferry over to the island, this is a memorable experience. The history and the ambiance of the place is spell binding. The menu is interesting and the service was wonderful. The food was mediocre. We had the crab cakes, and yellowtail with hearts of Palm salad. The key lime pie was missing... More

This restaurant makes you feel like you have stepped back in time. It is accessible by a short boat ride, which was fun at sunset. We had the seafood platter and their signature dish (Crab Cakes). Both were excellent.

We have been to Cap's on previous trips to Fort Lauderdale by the sea. We were able to take my Daughter and our son in law to dinner there to experience the historic dining experience from great drive getting there to the fun boat ride and the great location. We were seated right away as we made reservations online. Had... More

Found this place quite by accident when we went to dinner with another couple and the place we planned to go to was closed. Going to Cap's is truly a unique experience. It involves taking a 5 minute ferry boat ride to an island and then, upon arrival, turning right or left depending on weather you want to go to... More

I'm just beginning to enjoy seafood but my boyfriend has considered himself an aficionado for a while. My coworker recommended we check this place out so on our last evening in Fort Lauderdale we made the drive. There has been a declaration made by my boyfriend that this meal ranks in the top three seafood meals. Let me explain why.... More

Caps has such an interesting history and the restaruant a very historic building. We had a drink before dinner in the bar... More
