Cap's is nearly perfect for outdoor, sunset dining. The outdoor waterfront dining area is huge and spacious. Chandeliers hanging from the branches of old Live Oak trees, sparkling lights all around. A complete open air bar at one end of the outdoor area. Dozens of beers and every mixed drink you can think of. The food is outstanding with great... More

Recommend the fried gator tail, smoked fish dip, calamari and crab soup. Outstanding! Glad Cap's is back after the hurricane.

I'm pretty sure you could order lunch or dinner blindfolded, pointing anywhere on the menu and be happy with what you're brought. It doesn't hurt that you're sitting just a few feet from the water watching boats come and go, diving birds and drifting clouds. We liked the chandeliers hanging along with the moss from the big live oaks over... More

If you have not been to Cap's on the river then you are missing out. The food is wonderful and the view of the river is amazing.

Bar/Wait Staff fantastic..Impressed that they all were assisting each other customer's, regardless, Great Job and Great Teamwork. Food and drink was surprisingly good, seasoned well and fresh..Prices seemed a lil steep, for that type of venue. The outdoor bar was very clean and well stocked.

Had family visiting from Massachusetts and they thoroughly enjoyed the food, view and atmosphere. We had a round table - perfect for a family meal and arrived just in time to see the sunset. The server was also awesome & was very good about telling my nephew what items he should stay away from (I.e. may have been fried with)... More

My sister and I went to Caps for my Birthday. It was perfect. The meal was beyond delicious. I had the best Salmon I've had in months. I raved so much, that the waitress had the chef come out so I could thank him personally. Excellent meal, excellent service, and just a fabulous place to enjoy the best food ever.

Good fish! Sadly night time is not the best because you can't see anything.Sunset would probably have been better. Service was good.

This place gets lots of attention because of the location, but how is the food? Had the stuffed snapper. Thin piece of fish and lots of bread. Good taste- enjoyed it. My friend had the grouper special. Bland. The sauce on the grits didn't enhance the flavor. Fish tasted "fishy". Place has a great ambiance but the food is just... More
