Cappy's has been around for a number of years and the quality of this tiny restaurant in the heart of Shadyside has been maintained. The menu is varied and the service excellent and I make a point of at least one visit to Cappy's every time I find myself in Pittsburgh.

I lived in Shadyside in the 70's, so I remember great Reuben sandwiches at the Gazebo. In town for a wedding, I was nostalgic for the neighborhood. The guy in the high end market suggested Cappy's , sort of a dive ambience which is fine had the food been better, i ordered the Reuben , yuck, the corned beef was... More

My husband and I have been enjoying Cappy's for well over 25 years. We are still there every Friday night meeting up with our friends. Bryan and his staff are great. Food and drinks are always good. As a previous review stated, us "regulars" are the ones who keep the seats warm!

Recommend a delightful salad with roasted red peppers, artichokes, olives, cucumbers, lettuce and topped with grilled salmon. Enjoyable

I do not get to Shadyside as much as I used to, but when I do, I head for Cappy's. It is a small pub/bar, but you can rest assured that you will get good food and a good drink in a friendly setting. When the weather is cooperating, you can sit outside and enjoy the goings on along Walnut... More

I dropped in to Cappy's for a late lunch the day after arriving in Shadyside on business when visiting from the UK. It is a neighbourhood cafe with locals keeping the seats warm - always a good sign. The food was well prepared, served as requested, with a ready smile and cold beer. What more do you need?

We sometimes go for breakfast after church. Never ordered the eggs that one of your reviewers said were bad but we do order BLT's . They are good with Bloody Marys. All in all a good place for a quick bite. They do seem to rush you as the place is small.....

Cappy's is a decent place to grab a drink, but beware of the breakfast. Pretty tough to screw up scrambled eggs, but somehow they managed.
