We stopped for an early supper on our way to red rocks. I could barely finish my sentence and the waitress assumed she knew what I was going to say continually cutting off my words. We had to ask for our drinks to be filled...More

Dont go here on off peak hours. They dont care about customers during shift changes. We got all our food at once and everything was cold. The beef brisket was tough and fatty and the ribs had very little meat on them.

Great location, located in an historic building almost beneath the arching “Welcome to Golden” sign over Washington Ave, Golden’s main drag. Good smoked brisket sandwich (but a bit of a rip to be charged $2 extra for a small portion of baked beans substituted for...More

Food choices were plentiful. The classic cheeseburger was cooked to order and was pretty substantial. Good fries to go with. Chopped salad was also a generous portion and tasted quite good. Service was excellent. Definitely would return.

Capitol Grill's hamburgers are made from grass-fed beef, and this is a rare find in Golden. (I wish the bison was grass-fed as well, and also the other beef dishes on the menu. I also would like to see some farm-to-table food served. I will...More

We ended up trying this place because my daughter wanted mac and cheese and it was convenient. We were seated right away, but it took an extremely long time to order drinks and food. Our drinks didn't arrive for over 10 minutes and it was...More

Our Place is Yours: Old Capitol Grill & Smokehouse has become one of Colorado’s favorite eateries for locals and visitors alike. The Capitol offers up a full menu of on-site smoked meats, classic American fare, featuring our housemade dishes with some unique twists, in an historic setting. We have brought back some of the grandeur of the building from its heyday as the capitol building of the Colorado Territory and in celebration of Colorado’s beauty. The colors, light fixtures and wall art are reflective of the mid-1800s period, when Colorado’s Territorial Legislature met within its walls.
