Description: Our Place is Yours: Old Capitol Grill & Smokehouse has become one of Colorado’s favorite eateries for locals and visitors alike. The Capitol offers up a full menu of on-site smoked meats, classic American fare, featuring our housemade dishes with some unique twists, in an historic setting. We have brought back some of the grandeur of the building from its heyday as the capitol building of the Colorado Territory and in celebration of Colorado’s beauty. The colors, light fixtures and wall art are reflective of the mid-1800s period, when Colorado’s Territorial Legislature met within its walls.

Will start by saying the staff was friendly and accommodating. Short wait times to be seated and for food to arrive after ordering. Was disappointed with the food. My husband and son ordered the Pioneer steak and were not impressed with the entree or the sides. Food tasted like it was premade and frozen, not freshly prepared. Very bland with little seasoning. Although prices were average, seemed expensive for the quality of the food.

Stopped here for a bite to eat. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food was incredible. The decor was a mix of old and new decor with cool stuff like money vaults from back in the day, etc. This restaurant is a place you definitely want to check out while in Golden. It's near the Coors beer place so you can check that out while here also!

Looking for a place to eat dinner while walking the downtown area of Golden, CO. Old Capitol Grill was a good choice as we had 7 in our party, and the menu selection satisfied each of us. Our salad was crisp and fresh, French onion soup was delicious as well. Three in our party had New York steak served perfectly as ordered. Side selections gave many choices. This restaurant location has an interesting history, and being an old building with tall ceilings kept the noise level down, making conversation easy for our group.

When we arrived in Golden we were not sure where to eat and walked around. We happened upon the Capital Grill. It was a beautiful day and we sat outside. Understaffed to handle all of the tables. We ordered clam chowder, followed by blackened fish tacos & a salad with chicken in it. We got the chowder after the mains; the chowder was more creamed potatoes than clam chowder. The fish tacos were tasty, but the salad was bland and definitely not worth having. As expected, when it came to pay it took a long time for someone to come out and collect payment for a most forgettable meal.

Good food & atmosphere, but the service left much to be desired. Can't say I want to go back. I'll go to Woody's Pizza down the street instead!!!
