Excellent service really makes a good meal great. Our knowledgeable and ebullient server enhanced the experience. But my steak, ordered VERY rare was, unfortunately not great. This was not the fault of the server, but the kitchen. Cappys will continue to be a go to spot, but not for steak.

Saturday and Sunday brunch is always great. One of the best fancy laid back places to enjoy eclectic renditions of American dishes.

Restaurant is just OK, nothing special, nothing bad. My wife and I wanted moscato wine which they don't have. The waitress recommended zinfandel which was just OK. They were about 15-20 minutes late getting us seated for our reservation, but it was Fathers' Day. Really no reason to make an effort to go back seeing how there are so many other good restaurants around.

Cappy's is located in the popular Broadway area, home to the Witte and McNay museums as well as other trendy restaurants and shops. This is a small, and I emphasize small, restaurant that was apparently built in an older building. It is a clever design but...it features all hard surfaces between the floor and the extensive but attractive use of wood. The tables are very close together and there is an open upstairs are as well.The result was that neither of us could very well hear the waitress description of the specials. The background noises overwhelmed the dining experience for me. Perhaps choosing the outside seating would have eliminated this difficulty. The various combinations of egg dishes for brunch did look attractive but if we go back we will be seated outside.

Cappy's was great as usual, except for a dessert special which had little flavor. They took it off our bill. This is one of our favorite restaurants in San Antonio.

My wife took me to Cappy's for Father's Day brunch. As always, the food, service and ambience were outstanding and just what we have come to expect from this great neighborhood spot. We both had brunch items, and I can easily say that Cappy's really knows how to make hollandaise. The Lawtons have done a great job in maintaining an Alamo Heights institution in Cappy's.

Great food. All the staff was courteous. I had the beef tenderloin with sides. Onions to die for. Our waitress, Rachel was awesome. Excellent service without hovering over our table. Will be back.

Steady, consistent restaurant with good service and pricing. When I am hosting business dinners, this is the non-touristy "go to" place for me. It's quiet, relaxed and has a menu for just about every palette. I like the lamb chops with smashed peas/potatoes (little more flavor please) . There are some interesting appetizers. We ordered crab claws. I would like to have seen more than 4 on a plate but, they were very good. I am picky. Will go back.

Service was outstanding. Came in from Houston, met family from east coast. We all enjoyed the food, the service, the overall experience. A San Antonio treasure
As usual Cappy's was outstanding. Food is always excellently prepared and served. It is delicious. It was a birthday celebration at lunch. The honoree was treated specially nice and very attentive during entire time. Our small group regularly celebrates our birthdays at Cappys. It's a long tradition that we thoroughly enjoy.

Cappy's is always a great experience and finding new, creative menu items is just part of the treat. I found the oysters to be some of the best ever, as was the shrimp. (first time I had tired it!) Four out of town guests with me could not have been more pleased with the wine, the choices on the menu and the quality of the food.

You could really tell that they take time to train their wait staff. They were polite and extremely knowledgeable. Outstanding customer service.
Sunday Birthday Brunch
Cappy's is a favorite of my Mom's so it made sense to come here to celebrate her birthday. Just as on previous visits, our food and service were great! I had the Cobb Salad with the house dressing and was very pleased. We will be back again!

The food and service were excellent! The pace the drinks, food and desserts arrived was excellent.
What a find!
Booking a restaurant from another state is challenging, but based on the great reviews I chose Cappy's for a client dinner. They did not disappoint! Local clients had been wanting to come to the restaurant and hadn't, but vowed to bring their spouses back ASAP. Very accommodating for groups, wonderful service and phenomenal food.

a great dining experience
This restaurant is wonderful! The food is what it's all about--and the food is fabulous! Add to that the knowledgeable and attentive wait staff and you have a great dining experience. I almost wish I lived in San Antonio so I could take advantage of eating in this restaurant every week! We brought our three grandchildren to a San Antonio weekend as a special treat and this Sunday brunch at Cappy's was a highlight for us all.
Daniel was an absolutely outstanding waiter! We had the porkchop and the fried shrimp. Their daiquiri is to die for. It was our 10 year anniversary and we decided to sit on the patio as it was really cold inside but other than that, it was a great meal. Our first time to San Antonio and first time to Cappy's. Will be coming back to both!
Service was fantastic and the food was even better! Everything we had was cooked perfectly and full of flavor. Can't wait to go back!
