“Best Ever!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

We celebrated my husband's 70th birthday. Had made reservations requesting a quiet table and mentioned it was his birthday. The atmoshere and service were beyond great. Had absolutely the best fish we have ever had. Our server was so helpful with our selections of wine and food. We will definitely go back. They even sent a complimentery piece of chocolate cake to go. Guess we will have it for breakfast as we were so full.

“Fantastic Food!! Ambience is wonderful as well”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

The seafood is always very fresh, and they do take reservations, which is so very nice to be able to walk in and not have to wait. This used to be the norm; however, a whole lot of restaurants no longer take reservations...even those that are "high end". Would recommend this one to any and all, and it is also very close to the San Antonio Airport..as it is located just a short distance down Broadway in the Alamo Heights Area.

“Charming place, great food”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Loved the building, with its exposed brick walls. The upstairs area was nice and quiet for conversation. And the food was amazing. Next time we go to San Antonio, we will eat here again.

“Cappy's in San Antonio - WOW!”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Had not been there before, recommended to me while on a business trip to San Antonio. Went on a Tuesday night, reservations by phone fast and polite. Marcus was our server, he was outstanding. Based on his recommendations, had the special Mixed Grill and it was out of this world, also the jalapeno margarita, apparently a specialty of the house. Plus, a nice Cote du Rhone (there were three of us, thanks for your concern)

For dessert: if you don't have the Sticky Toffee pudding, you're missing something extra special, and not likely to be found west of the Old Country, let alone in Texas

Overall, a wonderful evening, HIGHLY recommended

“Disappointed Again,”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

I kept reading all those outstanding reviews on TA,
I really wanted to experience a similar culinary treat.
So we ventured forth once again;

We visited Cappy's for a brunch on Saturday morning.
The greeters here are very friendly and there's nice smiles all over.
Our server was friendly and efficient.
I ordered the Texas pot roast.
It was at least 50% pure fat. I returned the pot roast
and it was replaced by a small piece of fish swimming in a sea of watery salad. For a $16 lunch item I expect more fish than this morsel.

They have a unique tradition at Cappy's for brunch.
They serve you a dish of scones and muffins as you sit down. When you eat these cute little devils your insulin
goes off the charts. When that happens your appetite increases exponentially. That's not playing fair.

My BW had eggs Benedict with fish, two eggs on
an English muffin. There was very little fish,
and the sauce was bland.
It does get crowded here and the noise level gets very high. It's better to arrive early and beat the rush.
