A good traditional place for lunch or dinner

This is a no hurry, old-fashioned place where you can bring a business associate or your family. The service is friendly and polite, no rushing you out

My elderly mother and I enjoyed a delicious dinner with excellent service inside the restaurant. We had parked in a handicapped accessible space near the front door and on leaving the restaurant found that the parking attendant had allowed another, non-handicapped, patron to completely block our car, let the person take their keys, so we were unable to leave. It... More

Had a good business dinner there. Ability to get table with some privacy which worked well given business topics. Food was good as can be expected at a capital grille

We brought our mothers to the Chestnut Hill location for a Christmas luncheon on the Friday before the holiday week. We were so disappointed with the server. He showed no respect to the elderly and ignored us for long periods of time. Our 1:00PM reservation concluded at 3:45pm. What was suppose to be a happy holiday event left us leaving... More

Each time we go to Capital Grille, we leave happy. Now we ask, Why go anywhere else? The atmosphere is elegant, the service attentive and the beef simply divine. For a great meal, you can't go wrong here - worth every penny.

My wife and I had lunch to celebrate my birthday. The food was great, the waitress was terrific and the birthday desert sample was perfect. The lunch menu had a large variety of food to choose from. My steak was done perfectly and my wife's shrimp were superb. An outstanding dining experience!

I don't often eat at steakhouses but put myself in a very helpful mood before going here. I guess there are plenty of people who go for this kind of place, but it just doesn't work for me. In addition to the fact that the food choices are limited, the seating was crowded and not especially comfortable. For me, the... More

From the valet parking to the wait staff, the service is top notch. Throughout the night, we were greeted by name, by everyone. The meal was perfectly timed and delicious.
