“Unexpectedly Good Take Out”
Reviewed November 29, 2013 via mobile

Our family rented a beach house in Ponte Vedra for Thanksgiving week.  We came in from various parts of the country.  I had made dinner reservations at Caps on the Water but had not considered that airline delays would change our plans.  Instead of a sit down dinner at the restaurant we had to settle for take out.  Caps was very accommodating and boxed up a delicious meal for us.  Considering the circumstances, the food could not have been better.

“Great view”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

At the rcommendation from the hotel we stayed at we decided to try Cap's on the Water. First of all I must say that the view was oustanding and being there at sunset was even better. The drinks were excellent, the service was very good but would say that the food was only average. We love peel and eat shrimp (cold) and was amazed when the waitress told us she had never heard of that and theirs only came hot. She was accomodating and at our request brought us ice so we could cool the shrimp. Food was tasty but not the best I have ever had. To each his own but will think twice about visiting there again.

“Lunch with the family.”
Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

Food and service really good. We had crab cake sandwiches, shrimp tacos, oysters, fish and chips. 5 adults 3 children. Good menu gir the kiddos. We ordered dessert and the best by far was the key lime pie. If you like Key West key lime pie you are in for a treat.

“Worth the ride”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

Was recommended by hotel staff and friend who we met there. Was as advertised. Food, service, location were fantastic. Overcast sky which prevented the sunset but still great experience.

We recently moved to St. Augustine and were entertaining a friend from Nashville. She asked us to take her to a seafood restaurant on the water.Several people recommended Caps and based on the reviews we decided to go. To say the least, we were totally happy with our decision. Atmosphere was fantastic - we watched the sunset and it was breathtaking. The service we received from Ashley was incredible. She intimately knew Caps menu and was very helpful as was were making our selections, expecially given we had never dined there. Her enthusiasm and over the top customer service was very appreciated...Caps should consider itself lucky to employ such a treasure. Food was very good...we all ordered something different but tasted each others dishes with great delight. We shared a coconut cake dessert that was to die for.

Were we impressed...you bet! We're returning this Saturday to celebrate a birthday and the following Saturday to celebrate my son's Thanksgiving visit. I'm sure Caps will be our destination for special occasions and out of town visitors.
