Ate there Oct. 19 for brunch. Waited for about 15 minutes because this place apparently gets really busy but got a good table with the kids. Food was good and lots of it. Waiter was very nice and friendly and brought everything we asked for. Attentive. Prices a bit on the high side for a diner but there was a... More

Arrived late on a Saturday night and was looking for something simple, found it here, old style dinner with lots of chrome, had the chicken salad wrap and fries, very tasty. Interesting mix of customers very thing from solo, to family and a group of well dressed high school kids celebrating home coming. Management did a great job of keeping... More

Everything about this place was very good. Great facility, nice people, great prices and food that was tasty and appealing. We were stuffed. The wait staff was working hard to get everyone served in a timely manner. Place glows at night with all of the special lighting. A lot of people eat here in just a few hours. We enjoyed... More

We ate breakfast at the diner. We were seated and attended to very quickly. The waitress was very nice and our food was out in no time. The food was very good too.

I went here for breakfast with friends late at night. We were seats promptly and our waitress quickly took our orders. Our food was out quickly and taste delicious. Their prices for breakfast are really pretty cheap for the amount of food that you get. Definitely will go back.

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

A friend had recommended the Capitol Diner and it was close to our hotel so we had both a dinner and breakfast there. 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
