Was in town for extended business and searched out a place that was not a chain. What a find! The ribeye with marrow butter was amazing. The Godiva freeze after dinner was incredible. A must try. Great food and service.

Cappy’s is full of locals on a Sunday evening when the doors first open. The setting is great and we’re always delighted with the entrees. The simple fried shrimp and savory veggies are perfectly cooked and nicely portioned. Start (or finish) with the chocolate martini!

Went there for dinner last night. Food was great actually. Shrimp nachos were delightful and gumbo was also great. Initially sat on the deck but was eaten alive by no see-ums. Bug juice did not deter any of them!
