Well the wait was long - but what do you expect for Sunday morning. But it was well worth the wait. I had the Capital breakfast - two pancakes (huge), eggs, bacon - soooo good. My son had the belgian waffle with ice cream - amazing. My husband and older son had the mexican omelete and corned beef hash -... More

The menu is huge- many selections. The place is big stainless steel diner and it is cool. The service is very fast, food arrives so fast I don't know how they had time to fix it. The portions are a bit smaller than at most diners, but are pretty good tasting. The soups are home made- the value is fair... More

My wife, small children and I visited here on a Saturday around lunchtime. We had no trouble getting a seat and had excellent service. My wife (who has been here before) had lunch and the boys and I had breakfast. We were all pleased and I especially loved my Eggs Benedict. Portions were generous and pricing is very reasonable.

It's been years since I've been to the Capitol Diner, but it was convenient to the business where I was visiting a colleague. It was lunchtime and therefore quite crowded. However, we didn't need to wait long to be seated. The staff was clearly expediting as quickly as they could, so it was easy to overlook the length of time... More

The food was average along with the service. It was open late and I gave it a try but overall was unimpressed.

Came here late night after being on the road. Got a booth right away. We decided we were too tired to eat there so we asked our server if we could take it to go instead. She was really friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent. My gf had the fried chicken with mash potatoes and I had the two... More

We had a blast! Maybe its your frame of mind when you enter that determines your satisfaction with the restaurant, but after sitting in the Giant Center for a full day of wrestling, we wanted a simple burger and something to drink. The burgers arrived tender and juicy and not so oversized that you're full for the entire next day.... More
