While this isn't someplace I'd go with just my husband or a girlfriend, it is perfect for family dining. Loud, decent food, quick service. That's really all that is required for dining out with kids.

I've dined at several Cameron Mitchell restaurants and this one has not been impressive. While the staff was very friendly, the food is nothing special. I've been to this Cap City three times in the last year hoping that my experience was rare. However, all three experiences have been very similar. I will recommend the pork chops as they were...

We've eaten here twice and love it. Consistent good food and excellent service! Vince was our server this time and surprised me with his trademark cocktail - delicious! Calamari was excellent as was the liver and onion dish! Must do if in grandview of Columbus!

Meals here are hot, lots of gravy, and LARGE. I would suggest you order a salad for each of you and an entree to share. There is nothing fancy here, just basic comfort food. I do think the prices are a bit high for what you get and I would not go there for breakfast, pretty pedestrian. The service is... More

We've eaten at Cap City on many occasions and we are never disappointed. Often we split the entre as the portions are huge and this is plenty. The deserts are to kill for and also should be shared. Another Cameron Mitchell restaurant that is a real winner.

My family and I love the Cap City Diner and most often eat at the location near the corner of Morse and Hamilton Road in Columbus. The menu caters to a wide range of tastes and the service is prompt. If I order a peach tea, for example, I get a carafe to use for refills. The meatloaf platter is... More

Whenever we visit our son at OSU he asks if we'll treat him and friends at Cap City Diner/Grandview. It's a hit on many levels - the perfect place to introduce foreign students to American home cooking (though food there is tastier than anything Mom ever made), portions are huge so you're guaranteed a doggie bag - always nice to...
