They have a wide variety of old style drinks on their menu. Try the fried black-eyed pea and pimento cheese, something different and very good. The fried biscuits and fondue are worth a try too.

You cannot go wrong with the Capital Bar and Grill. From steaks to seafood and everywhere between it's fantastic. And the drinks are top-notch!

Good, but not as good as it was a couple of years ago when I was there. The burger was good and cooked as I ordered (Medium), but it was weirdly tall. I had to cut it in half and eat it from the top down layer by layer. Oddly the carrot cake was another tall cylinder, and a little... More

Great brunch, coffee, service, and atmosphere. Relaxing and never felt rushed to leave. Water glasses- nice thin crystal and elegant table settings. The staff are extremely good and very attentive.

The Capital Bar and Grill never dissapoints. Charming, historic and distinctively southern. The food and service are amazing. Live music some evenings add to the atmosphere! Love it!

This is a nice relacing atmosphere. Groups can hear one another and not disturb others. The food is top notch. We had the trout and the duck pot pie casarole which was super tasty and robust. There are only 4 dessert choices and they are proud of their banana pudding but we tried the carrot cake which was the best... More

I hosted a happy hour at the Capital bar and grill the day after Christmas this year. We had the fabulous pimento cheese app along with several salad and an amazing cheese tray. The wines by the glass were fantastic on the reserve menu including a Belle Glos Pinot Noir. We had great service and everything was impecable. Cannot wait... More

We had late lunch here on a Sunday and were very pleased with the experience. The restaurant/bar is located in the historic Capital Hotel and the decor is very nice. I had a Cuban sandwich and a cup of duck gumbo for my meal. Both items were nicely prepared and were delicious. The gumbo came with some small rice biscuits... More

This is a very small bar within the Capital Hotel. We had an absolutely wonderful two drinks there, completely due to the bar tender. What a great educated and outgoing young man. Wish him all the best! Nice bar with lots of options, the prices are not cheap but the ambience makes up for it.

Thank TxBrian
