“Tops”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

For us, Cappy's was perfect. We loved the combination of casual and elegant (brick walls, white tablecloths), and the food was definitely some of the best we have eaten in a restaurant. If you are staying on the riverwalk, it is worth the effort to get to Cappy's.

“The best in customer service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

The wait staff are awesome and extremely attentive. We've not experienced this level of customer care with any other restaurant. Awesome food presentation. We feel totally tended to. Lovely venue and setting. We noticed other diners able to bring their canine friends onto the patio. The wait staff brought their customer's dog both a fresh bowl of water and a dog biscuit. How cute!

“overpriced average food with average service.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

I have lived here 11 years and people have raved about it. I found the food to be average and the service to be at the same level. Even a bit surly. I wasn't impressed enough to ever return.

“Terrific service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

I had two meals in San Antonio and I knew that one would be at Biga on the Banks on the Riverwalk (I'd been there before and had to go back) and I wanted an "off" the riverwalk experience, but high-quality. Trip Advisor search led me to Cappy's and what a great choice. The service was amazing. Although I wasn't crazy about my salad -- endive and blue cheese -- because it was really overdressed with a watery sort of buttermilk dressing, had no taste of endive, and just one big hunk of cheese sitting on side, the main course was delish. I think all of their grilled items are finished over an open oak fire and the smoky flavor permeated the oak-grilled shrimp that I had as entree. My fault that I didn't pay attention that it came over a green salad with lemon vinaigrette. I probably should have skipped the endive and I would have been happy. Oh....and dessert was OUTSTANDING. A bourbon chocolate pecan pie. It has been a long time since I licked the plate clean, but this was well worth the potential embarassment. Very nice wine list and, again, service, service, service, with a smile.
