I have been to this restaurant many times over the years and I tried many dishes that were all wonderful. But once you have the Romano Crusted Chicken, no other dish will do. For dinner there are three large chicken breasts that are lightly coated with bread crumbs and they are on top of angel hair pasta and a red... More

Ate at the Cap City diner tonight while on a business trip, the food was fantastic. The wait time on the food was borderline ridiculous in the opposite direction, I think my meatloaf came out about two minutes after I ordered it and my dessert came out about three minutes after I ordered it. The meatloaf and the apple pie... More

Very good food and excellent variety. Music entertainment in Spring/summer/ early Fall. Busy with good location near downtown Columbus. Limited parking

It is diner food for people with money, which is not really what a diner was created for. It is good food though. I went with a meetup gathering of friends and so it was complicated to sit about 30 people I think it was. We had to be split up a little but we had a great time. This... More

My wife and I go to Cap City Diner two or three times a year, get something different each time and it is always excellent. The last time we went, I had the blue plate special: Liver and Onions. I like liver, but this was fabulous. If they can make liver taste this good, imagine what they can do with... More

Cap City is consistently reliable for an excellent array of comfort food; their diner plates are excellent; I love their salads; blackened salmon and calamari are great choices too. Very fun diner atmosphere, high energy, great service!

Cap City is one of our favorite places to stop with friends, on a date, or going to and from the airport. GREAT $5.00 appetizers for their hh menu. If you can afford the calories ( and I highly suggest you splurge at least once) go for the Bleu cheese chips. The calamari is always perfectly cooked, never chewy. And... More
