We have eaten at the Cap City Diner a few times, usually after a trip to COSI. We always enjoy our experience. This time, we went in the late afternoon on a Saturday and were seated right away. There are a ton of food choices on the menu and their cinnamon bread is so yummy! It was a good experience,... More

This restaurant serves excellent meals. It's a bit pricey, and there may be a wait, but it's worth it! The atmosphere is great, and the food and drink selections are wonderful! Try the Really Big Chocolate Cake!!

Happy Hour is bountiful and delicious! inexpensive cocktails, beer and wine, and half-price appetizers. The calamari and mussels are the best. The bar-keeps are friendly and have interesting histories of their own. 4 to 7 PM. Give this a try!!

Have been several times for lunch. Consistently good quality, service, in a comfortable and casual setting. This is well prepared food, not gourmet, with a wide enough menu to please everyone, and their desserts are to die for. Definitely worth a visit!

After spending three hours at an Ohio State University medical appointment, OSU staff recommended this after we had three places in mind. We both had superb meat loaf dinner which excellent server Todd said was their top seller. Nice and tender. Great knowledgeable servicer(s) plus broad menu. We'll return.

A group of us came here for a lunch after a work meeting. The waitress was very attentive, did not complain about our request for separate checks and was on top of everyone's orders - even special requests. The meatloaf was as good as advertised - and HUGE! The rolls were excellent. We got an order of the Maytag blue... More

Not my favorite Cameron Mitchell but it's not bad. The service is very friendly but sometimes a little slow. I highly recommend the pork chop meal. Fantastic. It's usually pretty busy but not much of wait, if any.

I came here to have Lunch on a saturday on my own. The place is styled like a Diner, but way nicer, newer and more comfortable that you think of a Diner. It even has a fireplace! All of the waiters are friendly and fast, but they always keep a distance and are totally calm. Just how it should be!... More
