This casual, upscale restaurant offers innovative American cuisine including the freshest seafood from the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic and Pacific, great steaks from Allen Brothers in Chicago, and regional and seasonal specialties. Daily lunch and dinner specials feature local ingredients whenever possible. The Kobe beef burger can be paired with hand cut French fries, crispy thin onion rings, homemade lemon-pepper potato chip or potato salad. There is an outdoor patio under a canopy of oak trees that's shady and extremely popular with locals and visitors to San Antonio. The brunch offered on Sundays features a menu of classic egg dishes, fire-roasted prime rib, Texas pot roast, jumbo lump crab cake, and top entree salads, chicken and seafood dishes. Cappy's has an ever-changing, dynamic and well-priced wine list, with great choices by the glass or bottle. Full bar.

Great ambiance, great food!

I have been to Cappy's a few times and every time I absolutely loved the ambiance. They have nice, calm music playing at the perfect volume- not too loud where it's annoying, not too quiet where you can't hear it, In addition, the outdoor patio seating is great- there are fans going which keep the... read more

I eat here at least once a month. This is a locally owned restaurant that has been one of my favorite for over twenty years. The owner takes great pride in creating a very inviting atmosphere and features local artist on a revolving art show through out the warm and cozy restaurant. The patio has a wonderful large tree overhead... More

My husband and I go strictly for the potato chip nachos. To die for. The service is hit or miss. The nachos are not, they are always spot on!

My husband and our college friend dined on a Friday night. Great service and food was awesome. The mussels are to die for, and my husband enjoyed the lamb. Really liked the seasonal salad with grilled peaches and beets. Our waiter, Kyle, was attentive, but not overbearing. Go and enjoy!

The restaurant was clean, nicely decorated, and had lots of natural light, which made for a relaxing lunch. The service was prompt, friendly, and attentive- without being intrusive. The food was very good and attractively plated. I did... More

I've tried so many items on the menu and they are always great. They do wonderful things with seafood. Today's special was pistachio crusted soft shell crab. Yum! Wine is a little pricey for anything but house. It can get pretty loud inside when full. No noise baffles, just wood floors and brick walls. I love the changing art exhibits... More
