“Truly a hideaway with delightful hidden culinary secrets”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

We went twice so that should tell you something! I'm not fond of fish in soup but the creamy seafood chowder was the bomb. All of the seafood entrees were sizable and delicious offering a good selection. I wish some of the early bird specials would have been available. We especially enjoyed the crabcake appetizer. Gotta order the Almond Basket for dessert early on since it sells out quickly to the locals but if you miss that, go for the bread pudding.

“Good Food, Good Service”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Visited Capone's with a group of 6. Had reservations which were clearly necessary as it was a busy night. Person that seated us was very personable and the waiter came over to us quickly. In fact, the waiter was attentive all night. The food however, was good at best. Everything was presented well, but some of the portions were small and my friend's Macadamia Nut Crusted Snapper was not as tasty as the reviews would have made us think. We will give Capone's another chance soon.

“Great food, good service, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

I have eaten at Capone's twice. The first was with a large party and the second time was with family. Both times we had reservations and were seated immediately. The service was excellent and food very good. The servers were pleasant and very attentive. We enjoyed the choices the menu provided. I had a Salmon dish and it was yummy! We would definitely recommend Capone's and look forward to return visits. If you like tuna, Chuck's is a better choice, though.

Reservations are a must in season.

Awesome place. Much nicer people than " On The Edge"... Rude and obnoxious people there! Great place with great food! Jenni is a great server.

“The good and the bad.”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

My husband and I went to Capone's last night after reading the reviews. We had no reservation but were able to sit outside in the courtyard. The courtyard overlooks the parking lot and is not particularly attractive, but it was warm and okay. We had the eggplant parmesan appetizer which was excellent and boded well for the rest of the meal. Alas the caesar salad was bland and the macadamia nut encrusted snapper that people rave about was completely tasteless. My husband's parmesan crusted snapper was equally devoid of fish flavor. Maybe the reason folks like the fish is that it doesn't taste like fish or anything else for that matter. The service was friendly and prompt on a very busy night.
