I have had a total of 16 at Capri coving all times of day and night. This place has great food and a very competent wait staff. Tommie is outstanding in his knowledge and has personality plus. Average dinner runs around 17.00 and is enough for two. Great pace to eat and relax.

There isn't much non-fast food good eating in DHS, sorry to say. However, the Capri restaurant inside the Miracle Springs Spa is a notable exception. They have a pleasantly diverse, continental style dinner menu, with complete breakfast and lunch offerings as well. Nothing is bad. I'll go even further to say everything that I've ever eaten there has been good.... More

I had the 2 poached eggs over black beans and marinara with prevolone. One of the best breakfasts ever!

The ads for this place make it seem like it is something not to be missed. We had lunch, and it was just ok.

Excellent steaks and friendly, attentive service. We shared the shrimp cocktail for an appetizer. My steak (menu says all steaks are choice) was great - not very often you see a 16 oz filet, and even better at $34.95. It was as big as a softball, and well presented on a hot sizzle plate. Probably the tastiest, juiciest steak I've... More

So happy we found this place! After a long day of travel, we arrived here late, tired and very hungry. Even though they were about to close, Tommie and Ross were more than happy to take care of us! What a great way to start our vacation! Food was so good and service was excellent! Thanks again Tommie and Ross,... More

We ate at the Capri restaurant, and I was pliantly surprised at the quality of the food. We had the Chicken Piccata, which was served on a bed of gluten free paste (which is what we wanted). The portions were good sized, and we left stuffed. In the morning we had breakfast, and I ordered the Eggs Benedict, which is... More
