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

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

We've been coming to south Florida for 54 years - heck, we were here before McDonald's - so it is almost inconceiveable that we would have overlooked one of the most iconic eating establishments in the area. Cap's has been around since 1928 and remains in the hands of the original family. The place has hosted such notables as FDR... More

Only negatives are the parking in LHP and the hostess who is not warm and fuzzy. Short boat ride is nice. The restaurant is a slice of Florida history. The yellowtail snapper is amazing. Service is great although a bit pricy but if you are looking for unique evening caps will fill the venue. Do not be turned off by... More

Our great friend invited us and a few other friends to eat at this restaurant and we hit a double crazy punch just walking through the door. The host was rude on entrance and sent us to the bar. So we went there and the woman tending bar was even worse. She was so rude to me I was almost... More

We drove from Orlando to celebrate my husband birthday. I wanted a nice and different dinner experience and this place did not let us down. The crab cakes were delicious even the house Chardonnay was buttery! I had the snapper my husband had the lobster tail. Well worth the drive.

Our second experience at Cap's and will not be our last! Love the informative boat ride over to the restaurant from dock in Lighthouse Point. The Captain is a character! Go early and have a drink at the bar to see pictures of the little history lesson you receive from the Captain. Amazing to see the changes that have taken... More

As soon as my foot steps on a boat my blood pressure drops. So I'm in a good mood already. We were only headed over to check the place out and have a couple of drinks and an appetizer. They have a very cute bar in a separate building next to the restaurant. As we entered we were greeted by... More

If you are a history lover, you will love this place. The first restaurant in Broward County, it has been a speakeasy during prohibition and later played host to people like the Rockefellers, Roosevelts, Winston Churchill and many Hollywood stars. You are picked up from a boat in the Cap's parking lot and taken in about a seven minute ride... More
