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

Our trip with friends to Cap City for lunch was a delight! Our waiter was very helpful. He suggested we order from the "box" at the top. This has their 4 specialities. Among us we had the meatloaf, pecan crusted chicken, and the chicken dish with pasta. YUM! We topped off lunch with the Banana Bread Pudding (wow!) and the... More

Always get the meatloaf when here. When I ventured to another choice they were also excellent. Best starter salads with croutons to die for.

Loved this place for it's casual, trendy, diner-like atmosphere! Also, I have to say the food was surprisingly fabulous. I opted for the meatloaf because I knew it was the specialty ~ and I really enjoyed it! I ate half (big portions) and enjoyed the leftovers the next day, with a little added beef gravy I had in the pantry.... More
