Brentwood's Landmark Restaurant
There is a reason why Cap’s Oak Street Bar & Grill is a Brentwood staple and one of the longest standing restaurants in town. Cap’s has remained a constant spot where patrons can always find a satisfying meal.
The owners, Vasilios (Bill), Elaine and their son Jimmy, have kept the basic menu the same over the years. New recipes and trends are introduced to customers through the “Daily Specials.” Fresh fish is brought in six days a week from Half Moon Bay, and all the steaks are Certified Angus beef. Some of the popular dishes are braised Lamb Shanks, Veal Scaloppini, and the Prime Rib dinner for two on Sundays. Cap’s also features unique meals, such as broiled Elk Chop, Venison and Beef Wellington, or Steak Diane prepared tableside. You can start your dining experience with one of their newest popular appetizers, Lobster Escargot or the ever popular Fried Calamari. Then treat yourself to Banana Foster or Cherries Jubilee, both prepared tableside, a lost art in today’s restaurants
The success of Cap’s stems from the synergy of Bill, Elaine and Jimmy. Bill’s extensive knowledge from working in the top-notch restaurants of San Francisco contributes to his creativity. His recipes and sauces add a special touch to their traditional dishes and contemporary creations.
The long-time chefs do an excellent job of executing his ideas. If you’re planning a banquet, celebration, business meeting or a function large or small, just call Elaine. She can plan and customize your menu for all your needs.
Cap’s is noted for having one of East County’s best wine list. Jimmy has made his mark on the restaurant through his extensive wine knowledge. He designs the menu to satisfy everyone’s palate and budget and updates it quarterly.
You can enjoy your meal in Cap’s classic dining room or enjoy eating in the al fresco outdoor dining area, accompanied by live easy-listening guitar music. Cap’s offers a large banquet room for all of your special celebrations or business meetings. Try going to one of their Comedy Shows, featuring well-known comedians or perhaps if you’re an Elvis fan, the popular James Clark performance is well worth seeing.
Whether you are going out for a casual meal or celebrating something special, Cap’s is the place to go. It is a testament to their success that Cap’s is celebrating its 20th year in business. The community of Brentwood has truly become Cap’s family. After all, when you walk in the door, who can resist Jimmy’s greeting, “Welcome Home!”
