The service was terrible. The food is over priced. I will be a long time before I visit this restaurant again, if ever.

Not the first Capital Grille that I've been to, and the food/service/atmosphere didn't disappoint. Great place for a business dinner or lunch. We took a client there and it was excellent all around. Steak is great. Sides were awesome. The lobster mac-n-cheese was something new, and very worthwhile.

Really like the look of this traditional steak house. Steaks are very good - love some of the rubs they offer.

Ok folks, I am a huge Capital Grille fan. The one in Fort Worth is my favorite, always exceptional food and service. But the one in Pittsburg.....just awful. So the food, as always was exceptional. The waiter Christopher B surly and lazy. I expect no less than the best at a Capital Grille. This guy obviously did not want to... More

This was my first visit to The Capital Grille, and will definitely be back! We went for a lunch with co-workers during restaurant week last Friday. The lunch specials were only $16.15, for a 3 course lunch. We all got the dry-aged sirloin, and no one was disappointed! It was very good. Our server was great, very personable.We were also... More

It's been over a year since I have eaten at this restaurant. My first experience was with friends. My friend and I are not huge steak fans (this restaurant's specialty) so we ordered salmon while our husbands ordered steak. My salmon was great, but the guys were not that impressed with the steak. At this price point, it should have... More

Very accommodating staff when we arrived early for our reservation. No problem, we were seated promptly. A friendly business dinner gave us plenty of time to talk and enjoy a great meal. The beefsteak tomato and mozzarella was excellent to start. Had to try the new corn and Jalapeno as a side with the filet. Sides are enough to share... More
