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

I've been here a few times and every time our group has had the best meal. You have to get here by boat and reservation is a must if you want to make sure you get in. Seafood is incredible here. The chef has a number of excellent dishes and specials offered. Calamari is super good as are the scallops.... More

Cap's place is "old South Florida" and that's a good thing. Your dining experience begins with a boat ride from a nearby marina because you can only get to Cap's by boat. There's no parking on the "island." When you step off the launch, you'll find yourself across a road from an authentically ramshackle set of buildings from a bygone... More

found service to be good. was afraid after reading so many negative reviews. Really enjoyed the yellow snapper/crabcakes/ heart of palm salad/key lime pie. place is rustic, but not charming. prices are very high, but was aware of that before we went. 2 people, with tip included, was about $115. but, it was a special occasion. not a true seafood...

Cap's provides a look into "old Florida"; wooden boats and booze runners. We always found the food to be excellent but very pricey. The Hostess can be a real turnoff to many. Arrogant and rude seems to be her general demeanor. If you can get past that hurdle you should have a pleasurable dining experience.You should try the place at... More

I grew up in LHP and have raised my children here as well. Whether I am anchoring my boat on the East side and running to the bar for hearts of palm salad to go or docking the boat and hanging out in the charming, historic bar, Cap's is awesome. For outsiders (like Marsha P. below who complained about the... More

As an international travel writer who's called South Florida home for 11 years, I felt that I needed to experience this Lighthouse Point institution. I've read mixed reviews, and hoped that the negative ones, were just posted by hard-to-please guests. I mean, shouldn't the oldest restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale, where you can only arrive by boat, be a must-try gem?... More

I have lived in South Florida most of my life and recently moved to Lighthouse Point. I pass by this restaurant all the time, but never went-- until yesterday. The boat ride from the Marina to the restaurant is very cute. You walk into a very "charming" and "rustic" place. This is not luxury, people. It will feel like you... More
