Don't leave the Miracle Springs Resort and enjoy the food at the Capri. The prices are within reason and the food is enjoyable.

Took two friends to dinner; great steaks! Well one of my guests forgot to take his medicine with him, which needs to be taken before a meal. He left and went back to the house to get what he needed. Having already ordered our meal, I notified the waitress what had occurred. She immediately notified the chef, and the order... More

Menu selection was good and quite varied. The wait staff was knowledgeable and helpful in making meal selection. Food came very well prep[ared and was to be savored. I had the fruit de mare on marinara.

This place is our regular since Rick left TBP "Essence". As usual, great food and wine at about half the cost. Highly recommended.

A nice place to eat after a hard day in the spring water pools. The steak was good and the portions are large. There is a good selection of wine. Staff take great pride in their restuarant.

After reading some of the reviews about the new Capri, I was concerned. I really liked the old Capri, and I didn't want to be disappointed. Luckily, I wasn't. The Long Island Ice Tea wasn't as good as I remembered, but it was good. We had two dinners and a breakfast. I never ate breakfast at the old Capri so... More

Took 3 guests and myself to Capri last night. I made reservations beforehand. Their char-broiled beef is best, especially for the price. The Filet Mignon got high marks as did my Rib Eye! Very flavorful, and with some cocktails and a desert, got out for under $105! Pretty amazing! I will go back since the menu is varied enough for... More
