Went there on my own to have a quick dinner and taste some local beers. That was good, but the service was quite inexistant. Too bad given the location and indeed the good beers.

Good food, cold and nice beer, nice attendants. It was crowded but the receptionist got a table for us very quickly. The chicken wings were simply perfect. Thanks for the good time!

A short walk from our hotel made us chose this place for dinner. The beers we tried were excellent! Food was good and the service friendly. I had the salad with ahi tuna - very good. The place is large with some TV playing sports.

Well this visit to Capitol City was a bit dissapointing. The happy hour menu changed and not for the better. Pass on the chicken bites and just go for a burger or entree. The meatloaf is excellent. The beer is great and $4 happy hour...More

As a brewing company you would expect them to have beer especially when they only serve their home brew. We went to have an appetizer and watch the Master’s and they only had 3 beer selections and all were poor (and I love beer!). The...More

Several site-brewed beers on tap, along with full bar and big menu. Tasty burgers and sandwiches. Personal favorite was crab cake sandwich with a pint of Prohibition Porter.

Capitol City Brewing Co. opened its doors in 1992 as the first brew pub in our nation's capitol since prohibition, thus giving its citizens and its many visitors the freedom to enjoy some of the finest hand-crafted beer in the country. On the front of our menu is the symbol of freedom, the Lady Liberty, a statue found atop our namesake, the United States Capitol.

Nestled in the heart of Washington's rejuvenated downtown, this location has become a local landmark for celebrating great beer and food with family and friends. We have always taken great pride in our beer so come in and enjoy a cold pint of our very best and match it to one of the many menu selections tailored to the brews we serve.
