Very limited menu. If you like hot dogs and ice cream, I guess you have nothing to lose. Could use some improvement on their choices.

Very relaxing laid back. Typical diner type menu, food isn't amazing but it's good enough entire staff is very helpful and friendly. You can take your meal inside and eat whiles you watch. Movies typically last a week and they only do family friendly movies....More

On a quest for a perfect burger I stopped by the Capitol Cafe on the Square in Laurens. Neat 50's theme and jukebox, old diner-like feel. Burger was very good. Fresh, not frozen. Wait staff was superb. Nice selection of hand-dipped ice cream, too.

We love to grab some food and a movie here. You can't beat the prices, 6 dollars per person for the movie and great food prices as well. If you are near you should take in a movie here in a classic walk in.

Great place for dinner and a movie, or a movie and a glass of wine, or a movie and ice cream, or just dinner. The Campbells have it all and movie tickets are only $6 any time or day.

Friendly service and wonderful old fashioned burgers, whether you are going to the movies or not. But the movie theater is so much fun!

We are happy to have a local movie to attend in our own town. Do not eat there...food is nothing special. We definitely do not consider this a "50s Diner" as they claim. Staff/Owners not friendly & we do not plan on going there again...More
