Your ship has come in. The Capital Grille in Baltimore is located right in the Inner Harbor. A location every bit as special and impressive as our restaurant is. Come and experience everything from our famous dry aged steaks and chops to exceptional seafood. An award-winning selection of 400 wines. And an atmosphere of comfortable elegance. Any excuse to not try it, simply won't hold water.

My daughter & her husband took me and my husband there last weekend for my birthday. The waiter was excellent and the serving staff very, very good. When you haven't been to a top notch restaurant for a while, you forget how important good service is to the meal. The steaks were done to perfection. Their signature drink was delicious.... More

I recently had lunch at the Capital Grille with a dear friend and her two young boys. The boys had very particular desires about what they would eat, as is normal. The young woman serving us did a fantastic job of thinking up suggestions and establishing a dialog with the guys through the games they were playing on their devices.... More

I visited this restaurant on my birthday. The food and the service was excellent! They also brought me a complimentary desert since it was my birthday which was a nice touch!

I love The Capital Grille, Baltimore. They've always taken very good care of me. Unfortunately, they're owned by Darden. So, I cannot patronize them any longer for obvious reasons. But, if you can ignore the politics, it's a home run, no doubt.

Had another great dinner and evening at Capital Grille this past week. My group had the private "Annie Oakley" room and enjoyed the food, service and ambiance. This private room off the kitchen provides some great privacy for dinner engagements and I highly recommend it. We had 5 people but it can easily accommodate 8 to 10 people with the... More

First, try the Stoli Dole. It's pineapple soaked in Stoli vodka for a few days, served chilled in a martini glass. It's so delicious and goes down smooth. The service here is wonderful and we especially like sitting at the bar and chatting. Everything is delicious. The steaks are cooked to perfection and the sides I could eat every single... More

Great place to bring important business associates for a celebratory lunch that all parties will love. Be sure to consider trying the specials, I have never gone wrong with one yet. The steaks are great, but the salmon is also very good. Prices are not as high as you would expect for a meal this fine. Service is simply terrific!

This is the best steakhouse I have ever experienced. The food and service are clearly at the top of the list. It is pricy, however. But, especially for a special occasion (my wife's birthday) it was the place to go. The appetizers were great and enough to share. The steaks were huge (a 16 ounce filet mignon?!!), the lobster mac... More

Ali provided wonderful service. I mentioned that it was my son's birthday when I made the reservation. The table was set with colorful confetti to mark the occasion - a nice playful touch. My go to place for family celebrations.
