I attended on a Saturday for an early dinner with 3 children. Because of the heat, we asked to sit inside and were accommodated (despite the sign that says no kids in the inside dining room). The restaurant menu/prices and staff act like it's a 5 star restaurant but it's not. The inside dining room is small and is nice... More

We love this restaurant as our "go-to" for the open atmosphere, the view and the generally friendly and helpful staff...oh and the food is generally excellent. We usually order the chowder and ask for the freshest fish...We haven't been disappointed. The fish is always properly cooked with good variety of preparation from plainly grilled to fancy. Imaginative specials and plenty... More

We arrived at about 11:05 AM on Aug 24th and no greeter was at the front desk. Another couple was drinking wine and enjoying the view so we decided to get a table near them off to the left deck. Although the other couple had a server come by a couple times, it took 10 minutes for ours to bring... More

Nice eatery on the river. Great food choices by an excellent creative chef. My only complaint is that the wait staff were not quite as attentive as I would have liked...not much of an issue as the location is so nice.

Staying downtown St Augustine we were always directed to the restaurants within walking distance. Finally we asked isn't there something different? Cap's was then suggested. "Oh well if you don't mind driving..." OMG! Why weren't we told sooner!! This is place is so cool! We felt like we were back in the Keys only better! We arrived in time for... More

The place is unique...beautiful view, great atmosphere, good food, and kid friendly outside! We couldn't stay too long as we had another commitment, but the kids enjoyed playing on the tree by the water. The view was gorgeous. It was upscale and casual at the same time. I had the shrimp and was a happy mama! We will come back... More

We just moved to Jacksonville. Everyone said...."go to Cap's On The Water"....we went and now we understand. Sitting under a beautiful oak tree covered with moss, the breeze off the river while watching the sun go down....did I mention the fabulous food? Our server was absolutely delightful, very knowledgeable regarding the menu and gave us plenty of time to enjoy... More

This was the highlight of a recent trip. We arrived by boat and parked at their convenient boat dock. It was about 1pm on a Sunday and the lunch rush was in full swing but we were seated quickly and given full attention by the staff. The table had a view of the water and a gentle breeze (which I...

Off A-1A through a neighborhood, Cap's sits on the St. John's river. The waterside seats rest underneath a delightful canopy of old oak trees. The facilities meander along the waterfront in a disconnected but charming way. The refreshing breeze broke through the summer heat when we dined at 5:00. We had the gluten free beet and arugala salad with chicken... More
