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.

One of a kind experience!

The customer service is untouched, as with the food which takes you back to a time when you enjoyed the savory touch of grandmas cooking....as for the look itself, very inviting with a decadent menu selection which surpasses many others....I hate highly recommend trying this place for yourself.

Always enjoyable and consistently excellent food service and atmosphere. James the managing partner is a gem that will always make everything perfect, even if it didn't start that way. I've never had a bad meal and the bar is excellent. Nobody is measuring a shot here.

The Capitol Grille remains outstanding on every level - food, ambiance, and service. Four of us went for Restaurant Week, and we were absolutely delighted with Mark W, our server. Our steaks were perfectly prepared to our specifications – they melted in your mouth. Thank you for participating in Restaurant Week.

Capital Grills are usually pretty good and, occasionally, outstanding. This one was the latter. With no reservation my business associate and I were to get a nice table in the bar (the restaurant and bar were jammed in spite of the recent historic snowfall). Service was great. The food was impeccable. They were running a Restaurant Week special -- three... More

Awesome service by Mark! It's restaurant week but we couldn't pass up the lobster! Beautiful presentation! Largest most succulent lobster paired with a melt in your mouth filet!

We have come here several times and it's always a good meal. Service is very good and the atmosphere is very enjoyable. This time we did the restaurant week menu. We did have to add an app to make it a usual full meal. 3 reasons we didn't give this a 5. 1. Sat at a 4 top and the... More

A very big thank you goes out to Lawrence (aka Frog) and all of the other staff members who worked so hard to hold our ever-changing reservations and made our anniversary dinner this past July so very memorable!! July 23rd was our second time here (since our first date.) We had a lovely time, and now we have a photo... More

Met a client for dinner and as always the Capital Grille was an enjoyable time. Great atmosphere for a business meeting. Of course the best thing about this place is the steak and lobster mac & cheese!
