Went to Cap City for lunch on a Sunday. Wait time was about 45 minutes. Luckily there were places at a bar area where they prepare salads and desserts so we didn't have to wait.

Awesome food with a great variety. Lively atmosphere and nice bar area for those who enjoy a drink out with a friend. Staff members are attentive and friendly. I highly recommend it to anyone.

Think I have tried everything here...and every item is amazing! Tom. Soup is to die for...a must! Scratch cooking/sauces..etc. Great place for lunch, dinner and/or drinks, desserts. Can NOT go wrong here. I like the atmosphere here better than N. Albany's loctn's; . but food is just as good at either rest.

Meatloaf and mashed potatoes even better than most of us remember from childhood! Many family favorite type dishes.

Great patio in the warm weather, we love to come here and enjoy a nice evening on the patio. The food is always good, large portions and great desserts. The service has always been good when we visit, though we are never in a rush.

I have definitely had better meals but I have also had to pay lots more to get that better meal. I am not saying the food is below par or anyone's expectations, the food is definitely good and they will fix to your liking and I really like that I can order off the menu.
