As a South Florida native, I had never heard about Cap's Place until recently - so we decided to make our 1st visit - and it's not around the corner - we drove over 1 hour to give em a try - and boy am I glad we did! What a fantastic piece of nostalgia - ah, old Florida before it was all built up and cement jungle!
The little jaunt from the parking lot over to Cap's Place was very enjoyable, although, it would have been nice if the "skipper" had spoken more words the entire ride than "Watch your step" when we entered & exited - but oh well!
The food was very good - slightly pricey, but I think you're paying for the experience. Our server, Ron, was fantastic! When we told him this was our 1st visit, he took the time to explain the history of the restaurant and the hearts of palm, and went over all of the specials in detail. My husband ordered the crab cake appetizer - fantastic! Just slightly breaded and full of fresh lump crab meat - WOW! For dinner, our party ordered the crab cake dinner (2 huge crab cakes); scallops (8 huge scallops slightly breaded, broiled in a white wine & garlic sauce); bacon wrapped scallops (8 hugh bacon wrapped scallops); and sesame crusted salmon w/honey mustard glaze. For our sides, there was brown rice w/fresh spinach pieces, mashed sweet potatoes & grilled veggies. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal!
If you haven't experienced Cap's Place, or even if you have, this place should be visited at least every 3-4 months - I'm so glad I didn't listen to the negative reviews - this place ROCKS!
