“Go for the soup!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

The soup here was by far one of the best soups I have ever had. I had the lobster bisque and the vegetable barley soup. Both had amazing consistency and flavor. Stopping by here for lunch or dinner is a must-do while in Lansing!

“Fabulous Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Albeit a bit pricey, the food and service are second to none. Absolutely a fabulous dining experience, with a well trained and friendly staff. Great place to do business or to sneak away for a romantic dinner. Highly recommend.

“It was OK; had both good and not so good qualities”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

My first time eating at the Knight Cap. It is small, with only 10-12 tables. And on the pricier side, in relation to other possible Lansing-area eating establishments. My wife and I enjoyed the Couples special, with the Midi steak, roasted califlower, dinner salad, and bonus onion ring. The steak was cooked perfectly, but unfortunately, not tender enough to use just a fork to cut The salad with Roasted Red Pepper vinegarette was outstanding. The roasted califlower had an interesting (if unidentifiable) seasoning flavoring. For onion ring lover, the huge ring provided would have certainly pleased. The table service was very good, but we did not receive the discount our waiter thought was applicable for not wanting the wine accompaning the special. We were also charged for an extra dinner. Waiter apologied for the error. No big deal since we caught it. I personally enjoyed the meal, but will not return. Pricing seems to be based on either having an expense account to pick up the tab (is located downtown near government and corporate offices), or the free-spending bachelor-party boys who indulged on the alcoholic beverages and girls at the adult venue next door to the Knight Cap. I could have gotten a comparable meal at the local Outback Steakhouse for half the cost at this establishment. It had both it's good and not so good qualities.

im not sure how this place is still in business. it can seat like 10 people at a time and the food prices are just absurd, although the food is good.
