Had a fabulous birthday dinner at the Capital Grille last weekend. Brian was our server and he never missed a beat. My husband had the porterhouse and I had the rib eye and they were both cooked to perfection. Also, enjoyed baked French onion soup, fingerling potatoes and asparagus. Bryan provided a complimentary appetizer and dessert along with some birthday... More

Even though this is a chain, the food is excellent! The last time we ate here, I told them it was our anniversary. When we got to our table, it was decorated, we got complimentary champagne and I got a single red rose. Our server called us by name, very impressive. I had a filet that was melt in your... More

The Capital Grille is a throwback to the days of big, fancy lunches. Not cheap, but the portions are large, the service is fantastic and the food is good. A nice reminder of the way business lunches used to be.

We were in Milwaukee for a wedding while also celebrating our anniversary. You know how when you make a reservation and you tell them it is a special event and you want something extra done but you know for a fact the person on the other end doesn't have a clue and is going to do nothing so you'll have...

Have visited quite a few Capital Grilles in different states and remain impressed by their consistent success in providing quality food and service. A particular favourite dish of mine is the aged rib with porcini rub - melts in the mouth. The 'summer wine event' on the menu allowed us to try as many of the seven wines as we... More

This was an excellent dinner. Loved the filet mignon. Loved the Brussel sprouts. The spinach salad was average. Wine by the glass was good quality. The service was very good.

This would probably be my favorite restaurant if I lived in Milwaukee. First night service was awkward but it was last hour before closing on a weekend; perfect service the 2nd night. Very nice environment but not at all pretentious. Food start to finish was excellent, and I mean excellent. Quality steaks and generously cut. Only thought is that their... More

Met family here to grab a great steak dinner and was not disappointed. My wife had a NY with poached lobster on top. I had a nicely seared Porterhouse. My nephew had a ribeye and my niece had a NY au poivre. All were superior cuts. Only disappointment was the creamed spinach. It was sans the cream and under-seasoned. Ruth... More

Wow...I wish that all of my steaks for the rest of my life are grilled just like this. Words cannot describe how wonderful their steaks are. The only compliant in my case is the price. I think they lost the touch with the regular people. Between three of us, the dinner cost us $300. Nothing major. Steaks, sides and a... More
