    Seriously, outside of Bern's in Tampa. this is the best wine list in the state. Excellent wines, rare allocations, all reasonably priced. They have many wines I would happily pay retail if I could.

    Make sure your whole party is there when you go to get seated. They won't seat you until all of you are here. Head to the bar and enjoy a Mimosa or to the oyster bar outside while you wait!

    My absolute favorite place to eat anywhere! An unbeatable combination of atmosphere and great food (and a well stocked bar) makes this my go-to place in St. Augustine - just wish I lived closer!

    Another great night for dinner at Caps. Started with Vilano calamari and she crab soup. Grouper manchego consistently excellent. Blackened trigger also very good. Jose was very friendly and attentive.

  • Jason B.

    As always, food was fantastic. Started with calamari Vilano and she crab soup. Southwestern grouper was perfection. Grouper manchego always hits the spot. It doesn't hurt that Jose is adorable.

    If you want to hang out, head straight for the oyster bar. Less foot traffic, relaxing and fun area to drink and enjoy all afternoon or night.

    The blackened scallops are just OK, the seasoning masks the natural flavor of the scallops. Have the oysters instead!
