I happened upon Cappy's via TripAdvisor and Yelp and had a great lunch there. I had the fish taco, with great, fresh tortillas, perfect whitefish, and tasty sauce. The service was fantastic and the atmosphere was casual and really pleasant. I very highly recommend Cappy's.

I've been here several times, and it has never disappointed. This time I had the ribeye with minted pea risotto. The steak was easily 2 inches thick and was cooked to perfection, not easy. Great risotto, great service, awesome bread before the meal. Will be back whenever I'm in town.

Have had good meal and service in the past. Tonight was very bad. Appetizer was crab deep fried in tempura batter. Crab was not cooked-it was raw. Replacement appetizer was good but was charged to our bill. Rest of meal was just average. Chicken was deep fried with a nice sauce which was a pity for a simple chicken breast... More

This is out of the way for us but brunch spots are limited on the i10 north side of town. The food was great as were the drinks. 3 in our part had egg entrees and they were very generous . My husband had a burger which was good also. The fans made the outdoor seating pleasant

My wife and I had dinner here with business associates about a year after my last review. Once again, all the entrees were excellent and the waitstaff attentive. The atmosphere is upscale and business on a Friday night was brisk. While very attentive and responsive our waitress interrupted our conversation at times, mildly annoying as we were catching up with... More

We heard the chowder here was the best in the area. Both my husband and I disliked it. Not even close to the best we have had in Maine.

My husband and I were in town for a convention. We chose Cappy's and were not disappointed. From the lovely young lady who greeted us at the door, to our waiter, to the manager that stopped by the table, everyone was warm and inviting. And the food.... It was amazing! I had the rib eye. Perfectly cooked surrounded by roasted... More

A great venue day or nite. Cappy's lunch especially on the terrace is a great midday past time - I can recommend the Heights Burger anytime, perhaps with a side of Kale salad. However the most recent experience introduced me to Chef, since I asked about the line fish which was Sail Fish that day. It takes a lot to... More
