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

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...
