I usually check a restaurant on trip-advisor before we go, but this diner was close to our campground and there seemed to be a lot of cars around, so we went. The decor is nice and clean, the wait staff friendly and helpful, but the food is less than hoped for! I had a seafood platter and the fish and... More

I tried the patty melt which was dry and uninteresting but had very good french fries on the side. For breakfast I tried an omelet where they mixed the fillings into the batter and cooked the whole... More

I really enjoy going to this diner. We have made it a tradition now, that once we fly in from my home town to visit my family, this is the first place we go to after the flight into Harrisburg. The service is good and quick, and the food is good. Although I have not yet ordered their desserts, you... More

Never order a Rueben from this place, they threw a pack of cheap sandwich meat on the grill. Not the kind of sandwich I would pay for willingly or happily. The sandwich was really very sad, unfortunately the quality of the food has gone from good to unsatisfactory. The plus side is the diner staff try very hard to do... More

After many visits over the years we have never been disapointed in our Capitol Diner stops. If you're up late or passing through it's good diner type choices and atmosphere with excelletent service in a very clean place. We return here during most trips to the area.

My family and I are staying in Harrisburg to enjoy Hershey Park. We came here to Capitol Diner based on the reviews. We enjoyed the food here. The portions are big and and they have a variety on their menu. My daughter has food allergies and she was able to eat here. The waitress answered all of my questions. Decent... More
