Visited Cappie's last week with our daughter & grandson. Grandson had the chicken dinner with fries & a dinner roll. Daughter had the salad with chicken pieces. Wife & I had hot dogs with all the fixings, fries & onion rings. Milk shakes, ice cream cones and sundaes followed.

We came for the ice cream after being out of the area for many years. The restaurant is still clean, friendly and tasty. The wait staff and counter staff are what you would want while traveling, they make you feel most welcome. We came for ice cream on a Friday and were back again on Monday for lunch. We look... More

Love Cappies, its an Amsterdam landmark! Open seaonally, its usually filled with families and celebrating sports teams stopping for the hand scooped ice cream. They do offer sugar free ice cream choices! Food is cooked to order, typical "diner" fare. Very friendly service. Always nice to see the owner chipping right in to clean and take out garbage rather than... More

The breaded fish was a patty and the burger looked like a Wendys. Service was average and so was the food. Most come to this place to visit the owners and for the ice cream. I guess that is what we would do the next time we were inthe area also.

Everyone raves about crappies and their ice cream. We decided to stop in and try it. Honestly I wasn't that impressed. I would have preferred ice cream from the grocery store. The service was friendly.

If your looking for a great sit down family style or even individual ice cream bar then Cappies it is. There are plenty of places to get ice cream in the Amsterdam area but Cappies provides plenty of indoor seating including a long bar with stools. The staff is friendly and quick! I have now been there several times with... More

We have been going to Cappie's for 20 years or so. Always consistent and reliable. Menu choices are typical drive-in fare. Great steamed soft sandwich buns. Usually don't get ice cream but it may now be home made but used to be Hershey's brand. Very clean interior.
