The Capital Grille can always be counted on for excellent food and service. We go often when we are in the Town Center area. The seafood is excellent, and often creative. Best lobster in the Jacksonville area.

I am not a big fan of chain restaurants and thus I have avoided Capital Grille in every city for years. But a friend suggested we go for a special celebration lunch and I was up for the adventure. I was very impressed with everything about this place. The food was very good. Lunch prices were very reasonable and there... More

Compared to a week ago in Orlando Capital Grill on International Drive, this Capital Grille got the Lamb chops right-uniform cut/thickness and perfectly rare (done with just enough char on the outside for great flavor). We really enjoyed the "Generous Pour" with New World whites and reds with generous pours and attentive service; yet, not obsequious. HINT: eat off the... More

Great service and very good food. The wine tasting special was great! About $27 for as many tastes on the flight menu as you wanted to try. There were about 10 wines to choose from so it was fun to try a lot of different things without having to pay $10 a glass. Overall, fairly pricey but they produce great... More

I ate here for the first time today with my boyfriend for lunch. We went in the late afternoon and there was no wait at all. We ordered calamari to start with and it was crispy, spicy, and flavorful. It was a pretty large portion, so it was more than enough for us to share. Next we had the blue... More

My wife made reservations at the Capital Grille for our 29th wedding anniversary. The staff had a table set up for us with a red rose, small heart cutouts over the table and a card signed by the staff wishing us a Happy Anniversary. The service was impeccable. Lindsey who waited on us was wonderful. She took a picture of... More

I have been to Capital Grille once or twice a year or so ago and thought it was "ok." I went again for the Generous Pour event and it was WONDERFUL. I had the filet and lobster, of course the lobster mac-n-cheese and they were delicious. You cant beat the generous pour deal for drinks and I was very happy... More

Our Newcomers group went to The Capital Grille for our July birthdays upon my request since I was one of the birthday girls. And I was so happy about my choice. I had the watermelon salad that was delicious, although the watermelon was cut way too small, more like confetti. Then I had the scallops and it was very good.... More

This is by far one of our favorite restaurants in Jacksonville. We usually try to seek out non-chain dining experiences, but this particular CG has won us over. This is definitely a STEAK house. While seafood options are on the menu, the Mitchell's Seafood restaurant next door can scratch that itch for most diners. The staff at CG-Jax is extremely... More

We have been to the Capital Grille several times but took my sister who had never been there before for a nice lunch. It was late - almost 2:30 so we sat at a table in the bar area. The server was very pleasant and gave us the intro to the menu and their "Plates" specials. We all ordered drinks... More
