A group of us went there in December 2014. From the boat ride to the historical photos etc on the walls to the fantastic service and food, everything was great ! We will definitely return.

Old Florida restaurant location by boat (free) from the Lighthouse Point Yacht Club Marina. Terrific fresh fish, try the snapper ! If you are a history buff, you don't want to miss this charming old time favorite local restaurant, albeit out of the way of the hustle bustle of chain restaurants, however a must if you are visiting South Florida!...

This little shack by the intercoastal was once a favorite hangout for rum-runners. That old time feel is still here, To get there you have to park across the way and there is a ferry that takes you over. Wooden floors and pictures of old florida bring you back in time. Seafood is awesome - can't miss the fresh hearts... More

Great experience in dinning. Fun boat ride to island. Great food. Pricey but very good. Love the crab cakes. But 35.00 dollars is the most I have paid for crab cakes ever. Every Floridian needs to go here at least once.

We like to pop in here when we are in Fort Lauderdale. This is a former speakeasy and is in a couple of rustic 1920's wooden buildings, it has a casual, comfortable vibe.They are on a peninsula with no parking. You park across the waterway in their lot which is in a residential neighborhood and can be tricky to find,... More

So my daughter ended up moving about a mile from where you catch the boat to go to Caps Island to go to Cap's place so we had to go. Pretty cool taking a little boat over, the boat captain gives you some history of the area and the restaurant. Been around for 83 years I think he said. Was... More

If you are looking for a great meal---Cap's is Not the place to go. Very romantic to board a boat for a short trip to the restaurant. It is an old "speakeasy" on water. Food is less than average, and the price will knock the socks off of you.Only thing thats worse, is the price of watered down drinks.The service... More

I have been to this restaurant many times over the years and I'm always pleased. Last Wednesday I brought some from friends from Panama and France to enjoy Cap's unique dining experience. We started with the short boat trip to the island restaurant with Captain Bob who mans the boat on Wednesdays. Our enthusiastic server Melissa made some suggestions for... More

The best part of the visit was the short boat ride. The decor is very interesting, but the food was only average. What ended it for us were their prices. $13 dollar martinis? Both entrees were $35 each. I told the woman who appeared to be the manager that their drink prices rivaled NYC and were overpriced. She said, "That's... More

If you want to enjoy great seafood in a great spot on the water and enjoy seeing Florida like it was back in the late 1920's and 30's, you will want to experience Cap's Place. We lived in the Ft. Lauderdale area for almost 2 years back in 2001 & 2002 and we did not know about the restaurant. We... More
