Yum! Excellent coffee, which is a must. The breakfast potatoes surprised me - much better than expected - delicious. My favorite, though, was the ham. Very clean, good food & great service - what else do you need? We will definitely be repeat customers, even though we don't live nearby.

This place has great food and great service and priced right. We have been to harrisburg so many times and we eat breakfast everyday that we are in harrisburg, and have dinner there at least 1 time while there. We are from the western part of the state and travel to harrisburg at least 2 times a year.

My wife and I met one of her cousins for lunch recently at Capitol Diner. I was pleasently surprised by the quality of food and efficient service. We were seated right away and our server was very good in getting our drinks and mentioning the daily specials and making recommendations. We each ordered something different and we were all pleased... More

This diner was extremely clean and comfortable. You can tell the staff takes cleanliness very seriously. All the metal and glass sparkled. The interior was decorated far more elegantly than most diners and gave a very upscale appearance. The staff was very attentive and service was prompt for a busy Friday night. The menu had a broad selection and the... More

Stopped late one night on the way home. People rave and love this place. I only find it so-so. Only stop when there are no other close options.

Food was excellent and portion size of the pasta trio was large. The desert case excellent with huge amount of choices. The place was busy and the staff was friendly. Our server (Tina) was good and help with menu choices and questions. Never been disappointed.

I've eaten here several times and never had bad food. Certainly not high-end but decent. Huge menu with a lot of choices including some healthier ones. The place is clean and service was great. Our food came quickly and was hot. Would recommend for a moderately priced place to eat.

Had the gyro wrap, friend had the chicken parm sandwich. The wrap was bland and soggy, but not too bad. The parm sandwich was soaked and not thoroughly cooked. Don't mistake this for a Philly or NJ style diner, with the phone book size menu. And the food is medium at best.

We found this gem looking for a place to eat. Seems everyone wanted something different so we tried here. We were not disappointed. The place is a spotless dinner in the Art Deco style of the 50's. It's a very pretty, chrome masterpiece. The menu was very large and it's open 24 hours a day. It seems when we visit... More
