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

I am a big fan of the Cap City in Gahanna, so don't get to this location very often. The food is just as good, and the speed with which it was served was admirable. I just wish our server had been a little less coldly professional and a little more warmly human.

Have been going here for years and was back with some out-of-town guests last week, and love that Cap City never disappoints. From all the reviews here you can see that the crab cakes, meatloaf, balsamic chicken and the desserts are always great, but even the simple cheeseburger is one of the best in town (not in the outrageous category...

We had dinner at this popular establishment last evening, before attending the Micheal Buble concert. The very crowded and extremely noisy dining room provided a less then desirable atmosphere. We have been at Cap City on several other occasions, but this time was different. The service was poor, the waiter was rude, and I can't believe the steak that was... More

This was or second trip to OSU and visit to this restaurant. It's part of the Cameron Mitchell group. Upscale food in a cool diner setting. The dinner rolls are one in a million. Fantastic meatloaf. delicious salads and efficient friendly service give this 5 stars!
