Description: This casual, upscale restaurant offers innovative American cuisine including the freshest seafood from the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic and Pacific, great steaks from Allen Brothers in Chicago, and regional and seasonal specialties. Daily lunch and dinner specials feature local ingredients whenever possible. The Kobe beef burger can be paired with hand cut French fries, crispy thin onion rings, homemade lemon-pepper potato chip or potato salad. There is an outdoor patio under a canopy of oak trees that's shady and extremely popular with locals and visitors to San Antonio. The brunch offered on Sundays features a menu of classic egg dishes, fire-roasted prime rib, Texas pot roast, jumbo lump crab cake, and top entree salads, chicken and seafood dishes. Cappy's has an ever-changing, dynamic and well-priced wine list, with great choices by the glass or bottle. Full bar.

I tried Cappy's for the first time today for a solo lunch. The atmosphere is great, and the staff and management are very friendly and attentive. I decided to try the Bean Burger cooked medium with fries.... Best. Burger. Ever. This thing has a thick oak grilled patty of Akaushi beef, aged cheddar cheese, guacamole, refried beans, fritos, and salsa. Absolutely amazing burger. I can't wait to come back and try their other dishes!

I wish I could give 10s on this one but 5 is the highest I could go! Alberto our server was amazing. He answered all of our questions with detail and he was very friendly. The outside patio is nice and shady with large fans too cool it down. The food...wow! They make many of the items (sauces, potato salad, desserts, ect) here from scratch. Loved it and will visit again :)

Cappy's has not lost its allure, even after 36 years. This is definitely a San Antonio staple. We've been coming here for over 30 years. Nestled in beautiful Alamo Heights, it is simply a beautiful restaurant; I happen to love the brick walls and the overall design. Check out the upstairs area also. It is a very comfortable restaurant; you feel right at home. The lighting is perfect for a nice romantic dinner. The pan-roasted chicken and lamb are absolutely delectable; definite must-haves. The staff and management go out of their way to ensure that the customer is completely satisfied. If you are anywhere near Broadway, or even if you’re 50 miles away, stop by and check them out; you will love the place.

Good food, large portions, but quite noisy and conversation was difficult. Cappy's is an icon in Alamo Heights!

What a great place for lunch or dinner. The salads are top notch and the sandwiches are divine. Shrimp fried or grilled are perfect either way. Service is stellar
