$1.75 Coors Draft from 3 til 7; so stop by for a brew you can't beat the price. Servers were Jessica and Marie; they did a great job at keeping the beer flowing. We enjoyed fish taco's. The cod was very well breaded and delicious; we told Marie we were sharing when we ordered and she split it to two... More

No matter what you order here, it isn't what you were expecting. It is right on Washington Street and there is sidewalk seating, so stop by for a beer. Go elsewhere for food. Lines can be very long because it is a tourist trap.

We stopped in for lunch and I had a buffalo burger with grilled onions and cheese. I substituted the bun for grilled rye bread. It was awesome while I washed it down with a cold Canadian Molson beer. My wife had the pastrami with I thought was good but not as good as the buffalo burger. We also ate outside... More

The title says all you need to know hamburgers chicken fried steak etc. We received very poor service upon arrival. The greeter and another employee had vanished but one of the waitresses or other staff responded well to our approach and seated us with menus. My chicken fried steak was very good, my wife's hamburger was okay. I was a... More

Stopped in here for lunch during a shopping trip. Was craving a burger & they definitely delivered. Big & good. My husband really liked his chicken fried steak sandwich too. Along with good service & interesting ambiance.

We stopped for dinner late in the day on the last day of our trip. We loved wandering around Golden and thought this restaurant sounded good. It did sound good. Food was mediocre at best. I was dying for a good steak so chose the first one on the menu - they were out of it, so said OK, to... More

Went for lunch, walked in and we're seated quickly (only good thing). We ordered drinks water, tea and an orange juice. The tea was horrible and the oj was not juice but some sort of orange drink. Our food orders were kids hot dog (bun was dry), grilled cheese (more bread than cheese), chicken salad croissants (looked like pure mayo)... More

Less than mediocre food. Don't waste your time or money. We waited forever for our food. When we asked where our food was we were told they had a small kitchen. Well, that doesn't explain the full bar, the outside seating and a huge interior seating area and the extensive menu. The food was cold when it arrived. Did the... More

The atmosphere at the Capital Grill is casual and my husband had eaten lunch there a couple of times and thought it was fine. Last night we went there for dinner and it was awful! Guess we should have stuck with sandwiches and maybe our experience would have been better. Our waitress recommended the ribs as 'fall off the bone'... More

The service was horrendous and the food was only slightly better. Took a long time for a hostess to seat us...there was no one in sight when we walked in. Took 12-15 minutes to get water. From time we sat down, 37 minutes to get food. They were out of Jack Daniels. Food was slightly warm and fries were very... More
