Lots of good to report about Cappy's. I ate here with business colleagues based on a recommendation and the overall experience was excellent, largely due to our outstanding server, Talia-she was great! The menu had many great seafood options. The crab cake, mussels, and seafood stew were terrific. The sticky pudding dessert and the strawberry rhubarb cobbler, also outstanding. Service... More

Delicious Sunday Brunch. This is a family owned restaurant with consistently great food and good service. Indoors or outdoors, the setting is comfortable and welcoming. It's nice to have a place you can dine with confidence in quality food and good service.

I have reviewed Cappy's before, a few years back. Since we have moved north into the hill country we don't get into town that much any more. Recently went back to Cappy's and it is even better than I remembered. The food and service is great. Highly recommended. You will not be disappointed.

Cappy's is a wonderful family-owned restaurant in Alamo Heights, serving a variety of delicious continental cuisine. It's an Alamo Heights institution and a favorite of locals. The food, service, and ambiance are all first-rate. Sunday brunch on the patio will be the highlight of your weekend!

This place was sensational. Everything we ordered was great, from the fish to the steak. It was more on the pricy side, but totally worth it. We went for dinner and wanted to go back for brunch the next day, but didn't have the time. 100% would recommend!

Great food! I had the halibut, and hubby had the snapper. Very delicious, and both fishes were cooked to perfection - juicy and not dry! My husband had the chargrilled oysters which had a good flavor, but they were tiny. We shared the coconut pie which was good, but will order a different dessert next time. Can't wait to return!

I first went to Cappy's about 25 years ago and thought it was good, but never realized how good and never went back until last week when a friend invited me to Sunday brunch. We sat outside in the patio which is adeequate but unfortunately overlooks the parking lot. I ordered the Lobster Benedict which arrived pipping hot accompanied by... More

Whenever we visit San Antonio, we stay at hotels downtown; however, we always eat at local restaurants, never chain restaurants, away from Riverwalk. This was not our first meal at Cappy's and again were most pleased. Location is easy to access on Broadway. The menu offers variety. Service was attentive, though not the most solicitous. Kale salad was fresh and... More

We randomly picked this restaurant based on the MANY positive reviews and a chance to get off the Riverwalk for a night. We could not have been more pleased! Our group ordered a good mix from the menu - steaks, seafood, salads, soups - and everything was great! The beef was cooked perfectly, the seafood was tender and fresh, the... More

We stayed downtown on the Riverwalk at the Drury Plaza Hotel. We had a very spacious room with a Jacuzzi which was great. A long walk from the lobby, but otherwise great. Took an Uber ride to Cappys and it was worth it. Everything we had was prepared and presented perfectly. It is worth every penny and considering what you... More
