We visited for brunch and were glad we had made reservations. It was packed and a little loud. We enjoyed the omelet and eyes benedict. Prices are reasonable,

All I can say is the dessert was one of the best ever. We had a great dinner of fish and chips and pork chops with cheese mashed potatoes, which were excellent but the dessert was amazing

Cap City is a local gem. While i always have a slight wait, this is because locals know you can't make a bad choice here. As simple as it sounds, the meatloaf is amazing. Basically any restaraunt with any connection (past or present] Cameron Mitchell is going to deliver a delicious, satisfying meal. Bonus : Cap City is very affordable.

I love cap city because it's casual and the food is great. They have the best may tag blue cheese chips, in fact I usually request them with cheddar cheese instead and they do an excellent job!

I admit $14.00 for a Meatloaf Dinner (one of their signature dishes) is a bit high but the service and attitude of the staff is one of the very best. And the meatloaf is delicious!

Moving here from NJ where diners are everywhere this is not a diner. Service is good but sometimes when it's busy it is slow, The brunch menu is very limited and maybe not the best for young kids however. The food and drinks are tasty and definitely worth the visit. We've visited for both brunch and dinner too. We liked... More

I have been here many time s and will continue to do so! Summer has an open air patio with live music. The food is excellent and the portions are huge! Go hungry

I've gone here twice. Locals rate this place high, it's always crowded. For dinner, I think it's priced high. I had chicken pot pie, a nice serving, but I'm not sure it was worth $16. Food is served quickly and hot. Appetizers are a good size as well. I even had a cup of soup, $5, based on the name... More

Food quality is pretty good, and this place can serve millennials as well as their parents / grandparents with a diversity of menu and beverage options. Lots of seating so typically not difficult to get a table. Food is pretty good, but kind of the large restaurant quality of food where it's getting cranked out pretty quick (similar to Cheesecake...

While this isn't someplace I'd go with just my husband or a girlfriend, it is perfect for family dining. Loud, decent food, quick service. That's really all that is required for dining out with kids.
