    Been to Cappy’s many times and enjoy the food and ambience. However this go round the service detracted from everything. After ordering the appetizer we realized that it had red pepper flakes which my wife is allergic to. We tried to let the waiter know that when describing off the menu items that it’s important to call out what’s in the dish. His response was pretty much well that’s the gastric, manager came over and said the same thing. I know what a gastric is, so I was disappointed that their approach was to be defensive and condescending. Will be back because we enjoy the restaurant, just was sorely disappointed in their service this go round.

    Nice meal, good service and a nice atmosphere. But you really need to upgrade your sound system. It’s terrible and I’d rather it be off until a new one is installed.

    I've been wanting to visit @cappysrestaurant for some time and it worked out for dinner tonight. We made our reservations through Open Table and sat in the outdoor patio. Dad had the Cranberry Lemonade, I had the Vodka Smash and my husband had the Strawberry Mint Julep. Cheers to the bartender for their strong drinks! The complimentary bread was soft and sweet and just so good with the soft butter! The Chicken and Duck Liver Pate was excellent with cranberry jelly. Such a generous portion we had to take the rest home. Dad and I shared the Crab Cake entrée and the Lobster Mashed Potatoes. The lobster mashed potatoes were wonderful. The crab cake was on the smaller side and more filler compared to Eddie V's. My husband's Halibut was cooked to perfection and he shared a bite with me. Tyler was a great server though he seemed to be running solo at the outdoor patio in a fairly busy night. Definitely will be back but probably get another entrée to share with Dad.

    First time visit and it was amazing! The wedge salad was great as a starter. My husband had the ribeye and I had the salmon and both were absolutely amazing!!! My husband said the ribeye was one of the best steaks he has ever had. Service was impeccable, Bell was our waitress and she was great! Totally recommend Cappy’s!!!

    Treated husband for Father’s Day Dinner, husband ordered Mussels that was listed on the menu, but waitress said she was sorry forgot to mention they were out no when she mentioned specials for the day. She apologized for them being out of mussels and would compensate with a free dessert. Our food & service was excellent, our dessert was superb, delicious. Needless to say Cappy’s has always been our place to go for any celebration, it’s out of our way,, since we live in La Porte., TX, but it’s our favorite restaurant in San Antonio.

    Food was pretty good, small portions but enough to satisfy. Our waiter was a little arrogant but was hard to get on any type of personal level since he was wearing a mask. Also, if brunch starts at 10am and the pot roast on the menu is not ready until 11am either make a note or take it off!

    Second worst experience at a Lawton family restaurant only this time it was not resolved when we left. Not sure what was happening but floor management was terrible today. Our waiter was changed midway through the meal…then changed back to our original waiter. Our waiter was taking care of us upstairs and outside so he was stretched thin. The waiter spilled ice water on my partner & no one bothered to apologize or make things right about this. I understand water spilling; what frustrates me is that no one made it right. Water was cleaned up poorly & my partner sat through breakfast with soaking wet shorts, socks & shoes. Worst of all, this was our anniversary & management couldn’t be bothered to talk to us about the incident.
