“If you like crab cakes...”
Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

Great restaurant on the intracoastal with beautiful views. The crab cakes were amazing. Fried flounder was very good. Service was very good as well. It's been a while since our last visit, hope to go back again soon.

“Memorable meal, quality seafood”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Out with colleagues on a drive down from Ponte Vedra, this came up on the GPS and we stopped on a whim. Were seated outdoors, in hut style seating - great atmosphere.
Friendly waitress, prompt services, and very accommodating with a few menu substitutions.
The appetizers of alligator, and fish nuggets were fresh, well seasoned, and came with some good dip combinations. The oysters were fresh and delicious. We all had seafood of one variation or another - fresh catch (Yellowfin tuna) was tremendously flavorful and properly seared, accompanied by vegetable sides that were fresh and delicious.
Overall a great local dining experience

“Cap's an old time favorite!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

A old time Florida seafood restaurant. Not to be missed. How it can only be 34 in St. Augustine restaurants is beyond me. We have been going here for years. It has gotten pricey but still worth it. Service is almost always excellent. One of those don't miss spots.

“As good as I remembered”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

If you love seafood this is the place to try. The food is excellent and the romantic view of sunset is not to be missed. It has been around a while and it is great to see it is as good as I remembered.

“Don't miss Cap's”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Cap's does not take reservations. Go about 90 minutes or so prior to sunset. That gives you time to be seated and order your dinner in time to watch the sunset. Use the free vallet parking. Get an outside table directly on the water (most of the seating is outside). The view is spectacular and the food is quite good. This is an all-around great spot for dinner. Be sure to plan a dinner at Cap's on your visit to St. Augustine.
