Cap's Place Island Restaurant

Cap's Place Island Restaurant Review

On an island once a bootlegger's haunt, Lighthouse Point's ramshackle seafood spot reached by launch has served the famous as well as the infamous, including the likes of Winston Churchill, FDR, JFK, and Al Capone. Cap was Captain Theodore Knight, born in 1871, who, with partner-in-crime Al Hasis, floated a derelict barge to the area in the 1920s. Broward's oldest restaurant, built on the barge, is run by Hasis's descendants. Sesame-crusted mahi mahi is served with soy-ginger sauce, flaky rolls are baked fresh, and tangy lime pie is a great finale. Clams and oysters are shucked to order.
