THis was the first restaurant during my trip to Columbus and it was phenomenal. I ordered the most famous dish, the meatloaf which was exquisite. The portion was very generous and could be for two people but I managed to finish the plate myself. The meat was delicious and the mashed potatoes were perfect. Service was quick and efficient. HIghly... More

A colleague who went to OSU years ago took us here. The cozy atmosphere, good food and good beer did not disappoint.

I have been here many many times and it is a wonderful spot. I especially love Sunday Brunches with Mimosas and ON Sundays only, they give iced home made rolls with the meals! Honestly, if the food were not just That Good, I'd eat the rolls only and take my food to Go!

We enjoyed the car décor and the restaurant was fun. The food was very good and the service was phenomenal. I would definitely recommend this place and I will go back. I had southern fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, very good. My daughter had the meatloaf. It was delicious. Enjoy!

We went to Cap City, Grandview to celebrate a birthday. The staff from the hostess to our waitress was very nice. Our orders came out in good time and everyone enjoyed their meal. The atmosphere was fun, good music overhead. It was very cold in the restaurant, so you may want to have a sweater on hand. I'd recommend this... More

We always seem to go back to Cap City while in Columbus. Consistently good food. Although we had a reservation, we still had to wait at the bar because our table was not ready- the bartenders are very friendly. The homemade potato chips with blue cheese is to die for! You really can't go wrong here - although it was... More

Cap City is located close to TheOhio State University and attacks a young crowd, families and couples! The Restraurant is well managed with quick service. Food is always good with generous portions . Fantastic desserts!

Made on line reservation. Parking is tight, so allow time to find a spot. Great food, great service. Vince was our waiter. Ordered the meatloaf and pork chops. All very good. Took dessert to go. We will be back.

Very delicious! Can be a bit pricey. Always busy, but worth the wait. Good for business lunches, or just in general.
