2 hour wait. Parking is very limited. The food we received was good and delivered promptly. The waiter, bartender an hosts were all personable. The view from the outside dining with the sunset was excellent.

We went for dinner and ended up eating appetizers. The portions were good, and very tasty. Recommend the gator tail and gumbo soup. Both were really good. Another member of the party had the grilled shrimp dinner which they enjoyed. The price was very reasonable...More

This is a place you'll want to take "out of towners" who come to visit. Be sure to eat outdoors under a beautiful Live Oak tree.

The food was good. However, the environment (the beautiful water, twinkling chandeliers and lights on the trees) is wonderful. And, my kids had a great time feeding the catfish in the water.

Great spot on the water, friendly staff, great scenery, amazing food. The scored grouper is crisp and tasty. If you are in the area, this is a must stop.

Cap's on the Water is a wonderful dining experience which takes full advantage of its beautiful location on the Intercoastal Waterway. I was staying out near the JAX airport so it took us about an hour to work our way down scenic A1A to Cap's,...More

Host was rude and rushed us. She sat us at the table, put the menus down and walked away. She had no personality and did not present well for the restaurant. Meal was not very warm and the fish had been cooked earlier and just...More

Many St. A restaurants are pet friendly, I can't confirm if Caps is even though most of their tables are outside. We are dog owners and lovers but my husband is disgusted with small dogs and their owners that hover over... More
