In my opinion this is the best American steak house experience. I have been to the mpls and Naples locations and both were excellent. I think the combination of quality service and food sets it apart from the others. Great wine and whiskey selections. Decor is fitting. Service top notch. Sides are excellent, choose from fresh vegetables to heavy comfort... More

It was always fun to get dressed up and travel to the Capital Grille for a fun night out. The decor is special, the drinks are masculine and the attitude is east coast. We love it. The last two times have been so dissappointing. The greeting was not friendly. There is a fine line between being professional upscale and over... More

Love, love, love Capital Grille! Good service, good food and just a nice place in general. Yes, it is pricy, but you are paying for the great steaks, the nice ambiance and location! Gotta try the Lobster Cheesecake, it is very yummy! Dry-aged steaks are very tasty!

I wanted to be able to review the show Mamma Mia at the Orpheum, however, just reviewed the last production there... Rock of Ages, and the system won't let me do another, hence, I turned to look at how appealing the pairing of The Capital Grille and the play were. I attended with my adult daughter (26 years old), and... More

I don't like going out for NYE, but we had theater tickets and decided to go across the street to the Capital for dinner after the show. We showed up early and were accommodated quickly. We enjoyed a drink in the vibrant bar, and then proceeded to a great meal. The waiter did a great job of explaining the specials... More
