Cap's On The Water Restaurant Review

: Forget coats and ties; T-shirts and boat shoes are standard attire for Cap's, a no-frills, authentic fish camp located on the Intercoastal Waterway. Fresh seafood is the obvious specialty on a vast menu, and it's brought in two or three times a day. Cap's also likes to jazz up traditional dishes, adding seafood to Italian pastas and marinating grouper in fruit salsas. The best options, however, remain hanging out at the oyster bar right on the water and settling in with a pile of raw bar items, or opting for basic fried or grilled seafood entrées. For dessert, Key lime pie is the big seller. To say the décor is rustic is an understatement. There are some padded chairs inside, but for the most part, guests dine outdoors on wood tables and benches underneath a live oak canopy. Listen, parents: A little restaurant-side beach allows kids to entertain themselves while the grown-ups have some special time.
