Originally built in the 20's Cap's Place is a historic part of Old Florida charm which is becoming increasingly scarce.
Get cocktails in the separate bar and read the captions on pictures of a Florida which is long gone. Walk, read and relax in the same footsteps, and uneven floorboards, of Florida's pioneers, visionaries, bootleggers, smugglers and scoundrels.
The authentic wooden frame building is old and sun-washed, but inside is clean, inviting and the definition of Old Florida ambiance.
The staff seems genuine and happy to be there. The walls filled with Florida history. FDR and Churchill were served food from Cap's while staying nearby before leaving for England from Florida instead of Washington to deceive the wolfpacks!
We have never had a bad meal or bad service. The filet mignon is great and my wife was impressed by the seafood medley, enough to have ordered it a second time. However, if you require everything done for you and your every need fulfilled , stay in Boca at Mizner with the fancy chefs, accountants, Credit-default swappers and Ponzi schemers! CAUTION, very aspect of this experience has NOT been cleverly engineered so you can feel good about yourself. Boats have exhaust, old wooden buildings have lumpy floors, the skys' blue, waters' wet. The unscripted experience can supercharge the romantic environment. It drizzled the first evening we went there. The canvas cover on the shuttle LEAKED! Can you believe it, canvas leaks! We found the drier area, I placed my coat down so she could be more comfortable, that's one reason you wear one, not just because it makes you look better, then we put the umbrella back up, IN THE BOAT! Married 27 years and the night was already off to a magic start.
This is not a cheap place to eat but do yourself a favor and skip more of the glorified bar food out there and be part of a real Florida experience.
