Great environment, great service, great food. Casual enough for jeans and a nice top but fine enough for a romantic date. Between us we had scallops, prime rib and beef tenderloin oh and the elk appetizer with the pickled blueberries! Not cheap but appropriately priced. If I lived in Texas this would be a common night out for me.

A friend recommend Cappy’s for dinner while we were in San Antonio for work. Our group of 8 were seated upstairs. I absolutely love supporting a local restaurant, and this place delivered! The food was delicious, served with flair, and super friendly staff. Very nice selection of wine, craft beer and desserts that make your mouth water. Thanks again, loved... More

We like to sit on the outside patio and enjoy the lemon drop martinis. The service is always great and the food is great. This place is great for couples.

Sit upstairs among the treetops for lunch and enjoy gumbo with a San Antonio flair. Lots of excellent choices. Fine service.

We were a party of 6. Reservation at 6:00 p.m. We were served at 6:45. At 8:00 p.m. we were asked to leave. Seems they felt we had been there too long and someone else wanted our table. We were extremely insulted. None of us had ever before been told we had stayed too long at a restaurant. We are... More

40 years! A staple in San Antonio. Paté is awesome. Crab cakes, eggs benedict.. Honestly haven't tried everything on the menu, but everything I had was awesome. Alicia took care of us. We will be back. If you are visiting San Antonio and are around downtown/airport. Stop by Cappy's and check it out. If they've been around for 40 years... More

The atmosphere was fantastic-we sat on the patio, and the food was fine, but the brunch selection was disappointing. All in all, I wouldn't go back. Service was really good also.

This restaurant has to be one of the top ranked best places to dine with, in all of San Antonio Texas! The food, the taste, service, atmosphere, drinks etc... will certainly help set the pace for the rest of your day. I've dined all over the world and for a local restaurant like this one to get it so right... More

Cappys has been here forever, and it's as good as ever. Food is always good here. I suggest reservations on the weekend. The locals are most of the crowd. You cannot go wrong by taking out of town guests here. It's pricey, but consistently worth it. If you are a tourist downtown, get out here. If you're local, get here.
