I have been here before many years ago and decided it was time to go back. The service and staff were great. Thanks Heather! The menu options all appeared very appetizing and we decided to go with the... More

Awesome wait staff, great food, great environment - I've had this on my list for a long time and am glad I finally made it today. Kenneth was our waiter and I think it was the best service I've had to the best of my memory. The salmon over spinach and rice was great. Bourbon bottom pecan pie was really... More

This place is a bit on the uppedy side but the food is great. The waitstaff is friendly and the ambience is good if you go in time to beat the lunch or dinner crowds, otherwise it can get a little loud in there. The shrimp is amazing and great size. And their meat dishes are great portions and tasty.... More

Cappy's has been a classy establishment as long as I've lived in San Antonio. You know you're in for great service when the wait staff have their names embroidered on their shirts. Reservations are definitely suggested fur Saturday night. This time I opted for the duck breast special I had a field greens salad to start which included goat cheese,... More

Cappy's has been around since the 70s apparently. Its a well known spot in the Heights and has good food and bar on 2 floors, as well as a shady patio. Usually good. It can be a hit or miss these days. Fairly noisy due to hard surfaces on the 1st floor.

We decided to try Cappy's on a Sunday evening. The comfortable ambience is complemented by the superior service. Despite the excellent presentation, though, the prime rib was rather anemic in taste. We wished it had tasted as good as it looked. The same could be said for the swordfish. However, the toffee pudding was one of the best deserts I've... More
