Beautifully built, what a cool place, especially at night! We chose this because it was close to the hotel and had good reviews. Huge, huge menu...hard to decide what to eat! I had the Yankee pot roast which came with potatoes and carrots, and I also chose corn as my side, and a yummy tossed salad with hot bacon dressing...haven't... More

Now I like diners like this, to begin with. Living in NYC area, going to a diner like this was a staple, so whenever we are around a diner, we check it out. And we were not disappointed. Food was hot and delish, service was quick, even on a busy Saturday morning. There was a 10 minute wait to get... More

Take a step back in time to an old fashioned looking cafe that has excellent selections on the menu. Order up and you won't leave hungry!

I have been there a few times for lunch. The servers are not very plesant, and they typically act like they are too busy to actually come to my table. They will grab my glass as they are passing, or drop the check off when I flag them. The food is never really good. I ate it, but only because... More

We come here regularly. The food is always satisfying. The wait staff always friendly and attentive. I am a big fan of diner soups, and Capitol Diner does not disappoint. Also great mashed potatoes.

Their breakfast food is a solid choice and their hot chocolate is great. Their sandwiches are good too.

Food is good and reasonably priced. Service is great, we never had to wait very long to be seated. Menu has a GREAT selection to choose from. We have eaten breakfast and dinner here several times and have been satisfied with our meals. They do have a Senior menu to choose from as well as a kids menu. Roomy enough... More

Weekday visit with great, hot food by a very efficient waitress. The french toast, bacon and waffle were excellent. The coffee was very good too. I will return here when in Harrisburg.
