Excellent Service

I enjoyed a late lunch at Cappy's with my mom. Lenny was our server, and he was fabulous. Highly recommend you ask for him. The fried Brussels Sprouts are unbelievably good, as was everything else we ordered. We'll be back for sure!

Although this restaurant is a 15 minute drive from downtown, the drive was worth it. The food was absolutely delicious. The scallops were extra large, reasonably priced. You can't pick a bad dish. The maitre'do was cordial and accommodating on a very busy night. Our server, Heather was very attentive.

My fiancé & I enjoyed a nice valentine's dinner here. The service was amazing & we had the pleasure of meeting the owners. They were giving everyone a free dessert which topped off the very delicious prime rib & lamb we order. I'd recommend to everyone.

I liked that it was not "Tex Mex" but you were clearly in San Antonio and dining with the locals. Good meal, a bit pricey but worth it.

Found Cappy's on TA and it was close to where we were. We entered the restaurant and was greeted by the hostess and we requested a table for two. The restaurant had a lot of empty tables but we waited for awhile before we were escorted to one of them. We sat for ten minutes or so before a waitress... More

Made a reservation based on TA reviews. OMGosh-Cappys delivers! Nicole provided us with great service. All of our dishes were delicious. My wifes Red snapper, and my rib eye had BIG time flavor. Be flexible with your reservations, because this is a GREAT restaurant!

We celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary here last night as our friends highly recommended Cappy's. We were not disappointed. In fact, we were amazed by the service provided and the great tasting food we ordered. It was a beautiful night so we asked to be seated outside. Glad we did! Our meal started with a cup of gumbo that we... More

Our friends were coming to town for lunch on their way to the coast. The wife is on a special diet so restaurant choices are very limited. Cappys was her choice since it is one of her favorites spots when she lived here. We enjoyed a very nice lunch, with drinks. I had mussels and a house salad, just perfect.... More
