A few years ago as I was planning a trip to Columbus for a concert, a co-worker mentioned Cap City Diner - we've been hooked ever since and make it a point to go there whenever we can. So, when I realized we'd be driving straight up 315 for my daughter's college visit, a reservation was made. We arrived 15... More

Arrived 20 minutes prior to reservation time and was seated immediately. Waiter very polite and professional. Great menu options. Prices fair. Portions large. Chocolate cake for dessert is recommended.

I have been going to CapCity Diner for as long as I can remember. It is truly a unique experience in Columbus! Falling under the direction of acclaimed restaurateur Cameron Mitchell - CapCity gives one all the aspects of fine dining without being overly stuffy! The bar has excellently crafted cock-tails and the food is superb. From comfort foods to... More

Remembering it is called a diner allows one to tolerate the noise level a bit more! Lunch menu has many choices and priced somewhat reasonably. Our server Chris was passionate about his job and made sure everything was great! We enjoyed the cup of soup, salad and sandwich combo. Food items are large enough to split:)

My husband and I were recently there on date night - great food at a fair price. Any time of the year is a great time to visit but you might want to make a reservation during football season!

I should have taken the word "diner" more advisedly. It was loud, the waitstaff was pushy, and the food was plentiful but nothing I'd ever order again. I went for the vaunted meatloaf, choosing the $10 sandwich over the $17 platter because I wasn't that hungry. This seemed to displease the waiter. He said I might as well order the... More

We had a large group that went to eat here. The menu was huge. Wide variety to pick from. All of the food we had tasted great and the portions were perfect. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but it is great on the inside! A must try if you are... More

This restaurant is overall excellent. Great variety of choices with everything from their famous meat loaf ( you have to try it) to steaks and seafood. Every time I've been there, the service has been quick and attentive. And their desserts are delicious and huge in size. I recommend the cheesecake.

Had twice an amazing meatloaf (you gotta try it, look for the the cap city dinner meatloaf) and awesome dessert (key lime pie....simply amazing!). I'm 100% italian and the meatloaf there has been as good as the meatloaf i've eaten in my country. the pie was absolutely out-of-this-world. All for a very honest price. One of my favorite restaurants ever.

One of many restaurants in Columbus owned by Cameron Mitchell, Note that service is one of the key ingredients in his successful dominance of the local market. Cap City is a great spot for lunch or dinner or a drink. Menu is basically "American Stuff" done right. If you think you'll like it, you will. Patio is nice in the... More
