Cap's on the Water in St. Augustine, a lovely restaurant and hangout, offers fabulous food and an ambiance perfect for many different moods and meals. The hype about this place is extensive and well-deserved.
Seafood is fresh and tasty, with interesting Southern and Mediterranean accents. Cap's has received Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence for five consecutive years for its extensive 400+ item wine list. The restaurant has also been voted number one for service, outdoor dining and wine list by the local newspaper.
Seating options at Cap's include an expansive outdoor deck, oyster bar and several indoor/outdoor options. I saw many families with children during my visit; and yet Cap's wisely offers an adults-only dining room called The Inside. The views of the Intracoastal Waterway are spectacular from all of them.
Cap's, part of The Historic Coast's burgeoning food scene, is accessible by land or sea.
