Went before going to The Rep Theatre. Food here is so good. Had roast beef au jus and it was wonderful. We ordered the black eyed pea hummus. Very good but spicy. Great atmosphere and a lot of fun.

The Capital Bar is located in the beautiful and historic downtown Capital Hotel. Its the place to be and be seen at 5 o'clock, from politicians, businessmen, TV personalities, people in the know or just people out of town with class, the capital bar is a must for cocktails.The drinks are excellent and strong, the atmosphere is old world power...

We were staying in the River Market district in Little Rock and wanted something casual but wanted to avoid all the hullabaloo of St. Patrick's Day. We really enjoyed the Capital Grille, It wasn't casual but appeared to be the more casual of the two restaurants. I felt like I was in a Capital Hill restaurant in DC. They had... More

Had a tasty lunch, (portions on the small side) and the server apologized twice for the wait for food. The Cuban was good as was the side salad and the iced tea was herbal and good. Hotel lobby is pretty and President Grant has stayed there and allegedly rode his horse through the front door after a few too many.... More

Trip Advisor made us aware of the Capital Bar and Grill in the historic Capital Hotel. We arrived 6:30, given a fabulous table next to the window by friendly hostess. Our server Catherine was over the top special. The wine list was exceptional and markup reasonable. We ordered a cheese plate appetizer that was one of the best we have... More

Located in the most beautiful hotel, the style is english oldfashion but the food is close to french cuisine and portions too. The service is young and dynamic. You never wait for your order and plates. Interesting for business diner, less for large families. However I spent very good time with my colleages.

Walked over from the convention center to grab lunch on the way to see the Clinton Presidential Center. Had a great lunch: Swiss cheese on hamburger patty, no bun, my guest had a grilled chicken salad, and the manager walked over with this great pimento cheese & chips spread. I'd say we are looking forward to a dinner here.

Not doing it justice, this place is relayed, more casual than you would expect regarding menu and rotate things adding new. It really is worth a stop on par with most everywhere downtown.

After drinking a few craft beer with some friends we decided to go down the street to the Capitol Bar and Grill for a late dinner. We started off with their house made Pimento cheese and soda crackers that were phenomenal. Next I ordered the Cuban sandwich. It was very inviting with its crisp and crunchy pressed bread on the...
