We went here to try the beers on draft that they brew onsite. They have 4 beers that are always on tap. They have 5 additional beers that they rotate. This place is crowded but we got seated fast.

I met a colleague here for drinks before going out that evening. I have heard great things about Capitol City's Beers and they did not disappoint. I must come back to do a flight of their different beers. Just know, the bar area can get very busy in the evenings and it is a bit loud. However, if you are... More

The location is great and gives you the ability to get away from the excitement of the mall in order to enjoy a quiet lunch or dinner. There are enough options to satisfy the entire family. The appetizers are quite good.

Had dinner here on a busy Friday night. Usual bar restaurant choices. We ordered hummus appetizer, salmon, and salads, and food came out quickly and hot. Food was good, not great but enjoyable.

Visited CCBC in the early afternoon for lunch. We were staying at the Grand Hyatt so it was a quick walk across the street to the restaurant. After we ordered the waiter brought a basket of soft pretzels for snacking - what a treat! My dining partners said the accompanying horseradish sauce was really good but I don't care for... More

A Sunday in the city with a visit to a museum and lunch for 2 couples here. We were hungry and it was worth the stop. Nice brunch offering with a generous omelette;a quesadilla,a keg roll and a bowl of chili. All good, much better than average for a brew pub. Note: The Kolsch beer was outstanding. The Keg rolls...

Loved the food! Service was awesome. We were able to watch the olympics here, not a bad seat in the place. Service was great as well.

Went with friends for brunch and it was excellent. It happened to be Pro Bowl weekend so there were no real football games on; but if there were I'd expect this place would be buzzing. Both the breakfast tacos and the crab cake eggs benedict were awesome. Also can't beat the unlimited mimosas and bloody mary's on the weekend.
