Gluten-free paradise

I am so glad we found this restaurant. My husband and I both need to eat gluten-free and Cap City treated us so well. The staff provided us with a gluten-free menu that had many choices. We were given toasted rolls to munch on while we waited for our food...the first time I have had this in over 2... read more

As an Ohio State grad, I've been coming here since 2000. The portions have consistently remained huge, which is great if you like to have a lunch for the next day! The price is higher than what you would expect of "diner" food, but really this isn't classic greasy diner fare. I used to come by here and grab dessert... More

We had a crowd of 18 for a family dinner. The waiter was rude and pushy. He didn't listen to what people wanted and instead told you what he thought you wanted you to order. Very curt and he talked over you so that you couldn't get a word in. The food was fair. People liked the meatloaf. Those who... More

We have gotten food from here many times and my rating is not meant to discourage anyone. There are dishes that are very good and appetizers too. There is some inconsistency that keeps the rating down. The general rule is the food is good just don't get your expectations TOO high.

Went here for the first time. Went with family. Cool, casual atmosphere. Food was excellent! But the best thing? Their motto: The answer is yes, what's the question?" And they mean it! Want a lunch portion of that entree - sure! Want to split that salad? Sure! Out waiter, Vince, was fantastic as well. Knew everything, funny and made the... More

Cameron Mitchell never disappoints. Went to Cap City for a business lunch for the umpteenth time. It was great (food and service) as always.

Went to Cap City diner for my wife's birthday and they also take reservations. The food was very good and the prices ok. I did find it a little pricey for alcohol drinks. Not sure how they think a mimosa should cost over $8.00. Maybe if it was more than 4 or 5 oz I could understand it.. Other than... More

Family members from multiple cities came together for a pre-graduation celebration and Cap City Diner, near the Ohio State University campus, worked out very well for us. Our table included a variety of eating preferences yet everyone was able to find something to please them. While the menu is dominated by meat, fish, and poultry choices, the Seasonal Vegetable Plate... More
