Indy Mainstay not to be missed!

Perfect spot downtown for pre/post the Indy Parade during the Indy 500 weekend! We sat outside on a perfect afternoon and had a nicely made bloody mary and bottle of wine from an excellent winelist! There are nice lunch selections. Loved that the waiter said

We were Conrad Hotel guests during a convention and were accommodated by the restaurant even though we had no reservation. The Lobster Bisque was the best I have ever had. Service in the bar is spotty so make sure you are seated at a table.

We had a graduation dinner for my daughter there, a total of 6 of us. This was a truly outstanding meal with perfect service. The steaks were cooked precisely as ordered, and 2 of us had fish dishes that were excellent. They have a wide array of steaks, and our waiter described them and guided our choices. The sides are...

very prompt and professional service. The coffee was great and my cup was never empty. The food was amazing. I had the pepper hash and was not disappointed. A very relaxing and enjoyable breakfast to start the day.

Capital grille is one of my faves. You can never go wrong, however this one is lacking. No kettle chips given or even offered at bar, no sipping rums in bar.. No Zacapa or any other GOOD rum at bar... Water had to be requested, no napkin for water glass, no stirrer for limes requested with whatever rum they did... More

We dined at Capital Grille the morning after staying at The Conrad (which is part of the property). We enjoyed our meals of Belgium Waffles and a Steak Hash Skillet. They were well prepared and had unique flavors. The service was also outstanding, as we had several individuals, including the GM, stop and ask how our experience was. It was... More
