Lunch, Dinner or Sunday Brunch at the Capri Fish House

The lunch menu starts with conch fritters, “lobstah” fingers and gator nuggets along with other goodies for a “reel” taste of Florida. Starters are followed by delicious seafood casseroles, seafood platters or the catch of the day cooked in a choice of five different ways to suit every taste.

Lighter fish dishes offer a variety of entrees such as coconut shrimp, clam strips or frogs legs all served in a basket with French fries. Grouper sandwiches, reubens with a fishy twist and salmon club wraps show the versatility of the chef and his team at the Capri Fish House. Steak, seafood, salads and a range of burgers will satisfy those with a craving for meat.

Dinner sees the chef change gear to offer more great seafood including the classic oyster Rockefeller, fried calamari, tasty bouillabaisse crammed with snapper, lobster and mussels or how about Cajun Jambalaya for a taste of southern cuisine? Stuffed shrimp baked with a crabmeat stuffing, baked grouper, seafood kabobs and Chilian seabass wrapped in bacon and served with an orange beurre blanc sauce are just some of the gourmet dishes that keep regulars returning for more at the Capri Fish House.

If you are in the area on Sundays, the Sunday Brunch is a treat you won’t want to miss. The restaurant serves all the usual breakfast items you crave followed by seafood chowder, jambalaya, country ham, steaks, salads and homemade desserts to start the week on a gastronomic high.
