We live close by and eat at Caps often. It's a great place to take guests when we want to treat them to a wonderful old Florida atmosphere. The food is well prepared and the serving staff excellent. But the management tends to run the place like a dictatorship. A party of four can wait for 30 minutes while two... More

Food was exceptional so was the service. We went about 5:45. It was packed!! 2 plus hour wait... However if you go back to the oyster bar area you can grab a table as people leave . The parking is in a dirt lot there is valet parking. We parked at a friends house and went by golf cart. Reasonably... More

Four of us had a great time at Cap's, due mainly to what was surely a beautiful sunset. We ate inside in front of a big window (temp was a bit too chilly to eat outside, which would have been better). Very friendly service and wait staff, food was better than average but not great. Fish portions could have been... More

Fabulous setting on water with high quality food. Had two fresh fish entrees, both well prepared with nice sides. Our waiter was average, didn't know difference between Pinot Gris and Grigio and served wrong side dish. Sunset over water beautiful - lots of outside seating.

Great location on the water with a wonderful atmosphere. Great fresh catch on the menu as well as other delicious meals. Full bar and drink menu. Can't beat being able to watch the sunset over the river enjoying fresh seafood.

One of the best on the water places to dine. Great seafood, view, outdoor seating just steps from the inter coastal waterway and the cocktails were fantastic.

My husband and I visited last night for the first time. First impression was not great as they are under construction. When asked for an outside table, where told that there was a 25 min wait but yet 40% of the tables were empty. However, once inside and seated, the view was spectacular spectacular, specially as we were seated by... More

Good food with a large outdoor eating area and great view. Crab cakes were good and we really loved the house dressing.

We wen't for dinner at 5:30 so we could watch the sunset. We're were given a booth where all four of us could enjoy the sunset without twisting our necks. We didn't want to rush dinner so we ordered drinks and appetizers and waited until we were finished eating those before ordering out main courses. The monitor were delicious. The... More

We had lunch at Caps on the Water in late January. They were still rebuilding from Hurricane Matthew. We had Oysters Rockefeller, a Blackened Grouper sandwich, Salad & Hush puppies. The oysters were large and fresh as well as the fish. The hush puppies were excellent with whole kernels of corn inside. Nice atmosphere and a wonderful deck area right... More
