Food is always good, service is too. Prices are a little high compared to some other local places. No reservations - so wait can be long if you go at popular times. Always had a great meal and a good time when we visit.

Eat, drink, relax and enjoy this restuarant built with an amazing view of Vilano Beach on the ocean. Always a treat to go here.

It's just a short drive here, from the historical center and across the bridge in Vilano Beach. Or you can tie up your boat outside, right there on the river. We enjoyed lunch under the trees. There are many indoor and outdoor seating options. Be forewarned, they do not take reservations and you won't be seated until your entire party... More

this is a very enjoyable place. It is mostly outdoors with great views of the estuary. Some even drive up in their boats. Great food, fantastic service. Very popular with the locals.

Great place . view is great. Wait staff done very well. The only downer I have is pricing . fine dining price with no flair at all. Would go back just not a regular here.

My husband and I stopped at Cap's for lunch during our St. Augustine trip. It was a great way to get away from the more touristy areas of St. Augustine. VERY yummy seafood and the view absolutely cannot be beat. Highly recommend!!

Cap's is a must if you are on the First Coast. Everyone knows it, everyone goes there, and it is truly the perfect place to take newcomers if you are a local. The waterfront setting is ideal, and the whole scene is mellow, yet vibrant, full of couples, families, all ages, all types. The decor is "island chic" and it... More

the weather provide a great sunset. we waited over 2 hours, when told 90 minutes. we were the last people served, Instead of saying they were out of grouper, it was easier to just divide the remaining grouper for 1 into three portions. I LIVE HERE AND MAY NOT GO BACK ! disappointing to take friends
