This place is cool in the fact that you have to take a boat to an island in order to get there. We got there early so we can sit at the bar and enjoy the history behind the place. Upon arrival the bartender Sam gave us no smile and demanded we check in with the hostess although we were... More

If you are visiting South Florida, you must go to Cap's Place. The food is fantastic. The seafood is fresh and prepared to order. The service is impeccable. The building was a speakeasy back in the day. You have to take a boat to the place. My parents took me there as a child and I go there now. Please... More

Had an amazing experience with friends. The restaurant is a must visit for out of town guests. It was great food, historic atmosphere and everyone left happy. I suggest you visit at least once!

Order Pompano fish if they have it. It's hard to find and wonderful. Also Hearts of Palm Salad. You won't be disappointed here. This restaurant is accessible by a short ferry ride and what fun it is. It's a rickety old boathouse with great ambience and great food. Make a reservation if they take them. It's been around for years... More

On our business trip to east Coast, needed a diversion from meetings and we traveled to different cities. Stopped here on a whim and really enjoyed the food and service.

Went to Cap's Place with a friend that lives in the Boca Rotan/Lighthouse Pointe area. Despite the fact that we had a large group, we enjoyed great service, great food, great overall experience. And the history behind the place makes it even more interesting. A definite recommend.

We have been to Cap's Place more than a handful of times, and many times just since April '16! We are locals & enjoy taking out of town guests for a unique experience just as much as we enjoy going for a romantic dinner for two! The food is always excellent. Favorites include the bacon wrapped scallops, rack of lamb,... More

From the launch ride over to the old Florida atmosphere to the list of famous diners this place just oozes history. No restaurant can please everyone all the time but you just HAVE to try Caps if you are in the area. All our dishes were excellent including the special palm heart salad. Our waiter was well versed in its... More
