Service was great. It was so cold in the building that we ate on the patio. Lamb was tasteless. Overall, based on the quality of the food, it was way overpriced

This is a very good old standard for the Alamo Heights/Olmos Park crowd. It was not too busy but I could have been there early for the usual patrons. (old guard) The food was very good but over priced in today's market with all the alternatives in SA. They can try to up their game or reduce the prices. This... More

Our family discovered Cappy's Resturant almost by accident on the last evening of our Christmas holiday in San Antonio. Our family was pleased with the quite atmosphere of the restaurant. Our waiter was very helpful and carefully explained the various items on the dinner menu. I ordered the pike special and was not disappointed. Our family also ordered the shrimp... More

My wife and I have been to Cappys three times, all of which we enjoyed. The ambience is much nicer on the first floor and outdoor on the patio. Last time we were sat up on the second story, which both my wife and I were not enthusiastic with.

A last-minute opportunity to visit San Antonio before Christmas made it possible for us to reserve a table same-day table at Cappy's, which we had wanted to do on the basis of friends' recommendations, and since reading about their gorgeous ENCHILADAS cookbook last year. On a chilly evening we opted for the shrimp and manchego cheese nachos (maybe the tastiest... More

I had brunch with my sister in law and her daughter on a Sunday morning about 10:30 am. We walked right in and was seated at a table. They did ask if we had a reservation which we did not so I'm guessing it is something we might have needed later in the day. I ordered the Gulf Shrimp Omelet... More

Very impressed! Stopped on a whim looking for a brunch place with mimosas and very surprised by the overall atmosphere, food and service! Best meal I've had in a long time! I had the crab cakes which were some of the best I've ever had this far from the coast. Boyfriend had the Homard omelette that was absolutely delectable. My... More

We decided to try something different from our usual dinner locations. We saw the great reviews for Cappy's and decided to go. I have been here before many years ago and decided it was time to go back. The service and staff were great. Thanks Heather!
