“The étouffée was great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

Nice atmosphere for dining alone. The fried fish was also delicious - it was cooked perfectly and nice and hot.

“Great Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We ordered the Spinach Queso appetizer which comes with tortilla chips and was quite good. It would have gone up a notch if they had served it with bruschetta instead, but we didn't complain. Our party order the Fried Crawfish Salad, Grilled Chicken Sandwich and the French Dip sandwich. Everything was very good...the sandwich orders came with string fries which were a nice addition and also good. Our server was a little delinquent considering that they weren't busy this particular Friday afternoon, but we remained pleased overall. Capitol Grills are usually quite good and we would recommend this particular one based on our experience here.

“Decent food, large portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

The food was good though not outstanding. The portions were gigantic. The price was reasonable. The waiter was pleasant but brought us the wrong wine, which he graciously corrected when pointed out. All of our food came at once--appetizers, salads and entrees, which was inconvenient.

“Billy our server was the only grace”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

The hostess was lackluster and lacked intellect - a first EVER in any of my Baton Rouge visits. The bar tender, hostess, they just looked in pain and not wanting to be there. The dirty martini was salt water, and Billy took it back. A new one came - exactly the same. The worst crab cakes I have ever had. It was painful. The little fried crab claws were good (Billy's choice). We got up and left - went to IPO and had a great meal.
