We were en route to State College and stopped for breakfast. The toast was cold, the over-easy eggs were hard and the service was substandard. I'm not crazy about diners, but usually they are a safe bet for an affordable, decent breakfast. This one did not live up to the good reviews I had read!

Great classic 50's style diner - good food, quick service, it's what PA diners should be about. Good for all ages.

This was our second time trying this diner during our trips to Harrisburg. There was a huge difference from our first visit. Our first try found the AC not working on a hot day and the service extremely slow. The food was excellent, but it was not a very good experience. This time the service was excellent, despite a packed restaurant, and swift and the food was delicious. The tremendous variety of menu options can please anyone. We were very pleased we tried the Capitol Diner again.

Service is terrible 99% of the time and prices are pretty high for dinner. Breakfast always rocks. Lunch/dinner is hit or miss. Everything is either perfect or its totally messed up, but its the best diner food around.
