This restaurant is very interesting to visit. You have to take a ferry to get over to the restaurant and the ferry driver tells you interesting stories about the restaurants beginning's. The food was very good but they were out of so many things including their special of crabcakes. It almost became a joke because everything a friend of mine... More

While there is road access to Cap's, there is no parking, so the address given is a parking lot on the other side of the canal where you embark on a launch for the restaurant dock. Cap's is an authentic former speak easy and rum runners retreat, and it appears to be kept in a state of impending collapse. Even... More

Had a reservation for 7:15. Upon arriving we were told they were behind and it would be an hour longer. After waiting an hour or so we were seated after another wait we were given water and rolls. Two groups of four people were seated after us, were waited on and drinks received and order taken and we were left... More

Cap had a very notorious past including rum running during the prohibition years, from GrandBahama. Cap's Place is located on an island itself and a small boat takes you to and from for dinner. It resemble an old fishing camp. Many famous have spent time at Cap's including Winston Churchill, President Franklin D Roosevelt and most recently President Clinton. The... More

We went to Cap's Place for our anniversary after recommendations from some of my husband's co-workers. The boat ride was short and sweet, the food was good and our waitress Jamie was amazing! You must ask for her if you go there. She's is a wealth of information on the restaurant and the menu. She will not steer you wrong.

What costs $25 elsewhere costs double here. Food is pretty blah. Drinks are expensive. Nothing they serve justifies these prices: one course meal for two plus cheapest bottle of wine is over $100. Service is also pretty blah, It's not like they're on another planet or island, however exotic the location might feel, seeing as you have to go by... More

A very interesting spot. Take a boat to ferry over. A step back in time. However, no server in sight until we had to ask. Good quality fresh seafood but too much breading on the Johnny style. If I return I would have simply broiled. Everyone in our group felt that way. Fun place to see due to unique location... More

Our review of Caps Place resturant Pompenau Florida Caps Place resturant,was a horrible experience,beginning with the short 5 minute ferry ride. The captain of the boat lacked diplomacy when he commented on the heeled shoes one of the ladies in our party was wearing saying “ Nice Boat shoes” He gave a short speech about local history, on the way...

Caps has never disappointed us. My wife and I started going to Caps when we moved to FTL about 14 years ago and had an anniversary to celebrate. My co-workers recommended Caps Place. We have gone there ever since. We left FTL about 12 years ago but when we get back to FTL, we always stop and have the yellow... More
