Good food, too much noise

Cap City is a good place to eat, Everything on the menu is tasty! The parking is adequate, but it may take a few drives around the lot to find a free spot. The issue I have with Cap City is the sound. Background noise is somehow amplified here, making it quite difficult to hear and carry on a... read more

We have been visiting Cap City Diner for more than 10 years, and we are never disappointed! The food and the service are consistently great. Extensive gluten-free menu (including pre-dinner rolls) and knowledgeable staff. We have visited as a family, with other couples for an adult, and for a casual night out at the bar. There's a reason their meatloaf... More

Cap City is another example of Cameron Mitchell's fine dinning establishments. Expect great food and exceptional service by friendly staff. I love the meatloaf with mashed potatoes ! A unique twist on this beloved comfort food. The wings are some of the best in town and I always order the tomato bisque soup. Amazing! But leave room to share a... More

I visit Columbus for work a couple of times a year and always make it a point to dine at Cap City in Grandview. It's only a ten to fifteen minute drive from downtown (during rush hour/dinner time), but worth the traffic! Everything I've ever had there was delicious. This time we started with the warm pretzel and cheese dip...it... More

This restaurant was highly recommended to me by some coworkers while I was on a business trip. I went with a couple other out-of-towners and had a nice dinner (I think I got a Reuben, which was tasty), but unfortunately, I left hungry. Especially being away from home, I always look forward to taking leftovers for a late-night snack, but... More

My highest regard goes to this restaurant for excellent food, good service, comfortable surroundings, and reasonable prices. I had the fried chicken which I really enjoyed. It was prepared in a very unusual and delicious way---two large pieces without bones. They were not strips--they filled the plate. They were crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. If you...

This place was recommended and highly praised by Trip Advisor. We made a reservation and arrived on time to a very crowded restaurant. This was mid-week on a snowy night and there wasn't a single parking space available! We had a short wait for a table and service was prompt. Our dinners were OK but not enough to give it... More

This is one of our top favorites with their offering of a varied menu, very good service and very enjoyable food. Their chicken parm with pasta and extra sauce always works super well. Lots of other favorites are on their menu. Sunday brunch can be very good and tasty, too!!

Have been going here over 10 years and it never disappoints! The staff, service, atmosphere and of course food is always a perfect match to whatever you are hungry for! The rolls are a favorite along with the Braised beef. The chicken is amazing and their brunch will leave you full! A great night out with family or friends and... More

The atmosphere is average. Our waitress was great. The restaurant clean. The price is average. It is the food that's nothing to brag about. The only thing I liked was my two apple spinach salad. I would recommend that. Had I known I would've just stuck with that. I also ordered the flatbread pizza off the appetizer. When it came... More
