Do not go there if you are hungry or in a rush. There was not rush in the arrival of our food. If there were other options we would have walked out. Food was fine but not anything special.

Popular diner in Harrisburg. The menu is huge and the service is great, but the food was nothing exceptional.

I along with my companion were looking for places to eat and most places even on a Monday were ready to close by 10pm. Thankfully this diner was open and luckily for us the owner who was on the premise that evening helped make it a celebratory evening by offering us some wine after hearing our tale of hungry mouths...

Visited this diner on Thursday September 8th,20016 at around 7:15PM. The diner was not very crowded. The service was not that good nor was the food and the waitress did not come back to see how we liked our meals after they were served. But when the bill was delivered the waitress could not stop talking to us. We have... More

In town for a quick weekend. Breakfast was very good. The place was VERY busy, had to wait, but only for a few minutes. Tried the next day, and there was a line out the door. Guess you can tell how good a place is by the number of cars in the parking lot, there were MANY. Typical diner, but... More

Went here on the recommendation of Trip Advisor reviews and we just loved it here. We had breakfast one day and did it again the next. Sorry we didn't come for a different meal. Food was delicious and service great. Price was on par with a lot of places that don't even come close in food and service. Meal was... More

The Capital Diner is a very family friendly diner. I eat at this diner regularly and have never had a bad experience there. The staff is friendly and the service is fast. Easily accessible, there us a lot of traffic in the road to exit at times.

Ate here for breakfast. Diner was not too busy, we were seated right away. Table was clean. Server was friendly. The food was great. We had biscuits and gravy, omelets and potatoes. Everything was fresh and tasted great. Didn't take too long to receive our meals. I thought the prices were pretty low for the amount of food we got.... More
