The Kobe beef burger can be paired with hand cut French fries, crispy thin onion rings, homemade lemon-pepper potato chip or potato salad.

Cappy's has an ever-changing, dynamic and well-priced wine list, with great choices by the glass or bottle. Full bar.

“Our last day in San Antonio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

We moved from S.A to Pittsburgh and ate our final restaurant meal at Cappy's. Food was great, as usual, service top notch, atmosphere was best in town and we will miss the staff and owners of this most excellent eatery.

“Cappy's is one of the best restaurants in San Antonio”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

The food is rock solid in it's quality. Nothing flashy or unusual to it, cooked right with excellent quality. Lot's of families and Alamo Heights matriarchs eat here. It's particularly busy during lunch time, so a reservation may not be a bad idea.

“Reliable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

You can always count on Cappy's. The food is good quality and the setting is clubby and warm. The prices are reasonable for what is served. It has an intimacy not shared by many restaurants.

“Simply great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

After a couple of recommendations, we decided to visit Cappy's for lunch.... And we will definitely come back to continue exploring the excellent menu. Friendly servers, nice little place, but the best part was the food. All the plates served looked delicious, and the Tuna Salad i had was superb. The whole family enjoyed their selections! Not to be missed if you are in SAT!

“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.
