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

I've eaten here many times. I've never left unhappy. Excellent food. Perfectly portioned. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the last time I went, I was somewhat disappointed in my food. I ordered the Maryland crab cake made with jumbo lump crab. While not bad, it was nothing like a Maryland crab cake, nor was it... More

My family loves dining at Cap City. The menu has a huge selection and you really can't go wrong on any of the choices! I have to admit that the Romano crusted chicken is the most favored choice for my family! The portions are large, price can me slightly high for a family of four but you never leave disappointed!

Repeat dinners, once again we were not disappointed. The meatloaf was delicious, the steak & eggs yummy, and my husband enjoyed the fish and fries as usual. The only disappointment was the lack of refill on our drinks and bread.

Had a lunch meeting here and as always did not disappoint. Food and service were very good and they have a great covered patio if it's not too hot or cold. Great location close to downtown and campus.

Had dinner at the diner for the first time. Very cool atmosphere. Decor was reminiscent of those diners of old. Food was very good, though not quite 5 stars. But definitely worth a visit.

Stopped in for early dinner. My husband had the meat loaf which is always good. My tilapia and roasted vegetables were good, but the talapia was a bit bland. Our waitress did an excellent job.

I love everything about this place - you can dress up or down, All kinds of selection and you KNOW it'll be great. Decent sized servings - (leftovers for lunch!) Servers are excellent - just the perfect amount of attention. Brunch is terrific on weekends, but I love dinner there as well. Only TV is in bar area. Ambiance is... More
