Excellent service as always. Celebrating Mothers Day a day early to avoid the crowds. Started with a wedge salad that included a tasty dressing made with Stilton. Me entree was Scottish salmon. The lobster mashed potatoes were so rich. Also accompanied by a corn asparagus succotash. Daughter had the prime rib that she has decided is her new favorite food.

I go to Cappy's frequently with a group for brunch but this day a friend and I decided to try dinner. I order mussels everywhere and I finally had a serving of them so big I could not finish them, they were big and tender, however the sauce was not very tasty. I may have eaten too much of the...

Our friends took us there they really like the place. Service was attentive. My wife ordered the rib eye which she said was cooked properly but chewy. I ordered the pork chop special Big PC but maybe cooked too much. Very dense and not as tender as it should have been. The risotto side was excellent. If you don't like... More

Whenever we visit San Antonio Cappys is on the top of the list for places we want to dine. We love the food, especially their burgers and the bread basket. We love their warm and friendly service and sitting outside when the weather is nice. Love this place.

Taking a customer to dinner look at reviews and chose Cappys. Did not disappoint. The bacon wrapped quail was very good. Customer had the tenderloin and devoured it he really enjoyed.

I have ate at this restaurant many times. Last night when dining out on the patio, unbeknown to me, the owner Cappy was sitting at the table next to my friend and me. What a delightful man he is. I had my dog with me, that stimulated a conversation about rescue animals and the veterinarians that donate their valuable time... More

The food was outstanding. They also had a wonderful cocktail list with a great wine menu. The service was outstanding and very attentive. If you're in Alamo Heights or not too far away, definitely give this place a try. You will not be disappointed.

We celebrated our anniversary with wonderful service, food and topped off with a surprise desert. Parking was convenient and the location is in Alamo Heights that is out of the city, but worth a 10 minuet drive from the Alamo. Strongly suggest you call for reservation as after 6:00 it was very busy.

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.
