Cap City is always great!

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Columbus. We went for Sunday lunch. It was a beautiful day so we sat outside on the covered patio. Everything on the menu that we have tried has been excellent so we split a Greek salad (the server split it for us). First she brought warm cinnamon rolls... read more

My husband and I have never been here and we had so many recommendations from so many people about this place. We decided to celebrate our anniversary here. The staff was very friendly but we waited 20 minutes before a waiter came over to us and there were just a handful of people there. We had the Swiss goat cheese... More

The Maytag Chips App is a great start. The boys usually get a milkshake and something small like a hot dog or one of their burgers. The meatloaf ifs the bomb. My favorite thing on the menus. Great service and I recommend making reservations. They also used to give out baby food if you had one young enough to eat... More

I have not had a bad meal, and feel if i wasn't happy with a meal item, it would not be an issue. Love the service, atmosphere, dinners, and deserts !!

Ate at lots of restaurants for 5 days in Columbus and this was our favorite one. Huge menu of choices, awesome gluten free menu, kids loved it, and the food was so so good. The place doesn't look special on the outside but don't let that fool you. The inside looks awesome and we really enjoyed eating on the covered... More

This a five-star among diners. Musts include the Maytag blue cheese potato chips. It's not on the menu, but you can get a half order so you can taste something exceptional without having it weigh down the great dinner choices. For a non-alcoholic beverage, try the Peach Palmer: lemonade, tea and a dash of real peach pulp. Easily the best... More

Such an awesome place to dine. Casual to mid-price range. Excellent food options with upscale flair. Check out their menu on their website. Patio option in the warmer months. Parking can be a bit crowded at peak times. Dining areas are seperated into a diner type area and more formal chic area. There is a pretty happening bar.

We went back to Cap City Diner a couple of weeks ago for Sunday brunch and found it to be just as we remembered it. Good food, great service and unpretentious.

You're going to like the potato chips with blue cheese, so just splurge, but share them with a group! Cap City prepares better meatloaf and diner food than vegetarian entrees. Big, fat American style desserts, like chocolate cake that is HUGE and apple pie that isn't the best you've had. Long waits sometimes, so make a reservation. You can eat... More
