DH and I decided on the spur of the moment to overnight in Harrisonburg before continuing our trip home to NC. We decided around 7 p.m. to check out the Capital Ale House for dinner. We were promptly seated. We enjoyed the ambiance and the local blue grass band.

We each started with a salad (Caesar for me, Spinach for DH) and then the Sunday night special ... $9 for an 8 ounce prime rib with mashed potatoes and veggies. The sauce served on the prime rib was very sweet. Had we known that it was served with a sauce we would have asked them to hold it. DH said his cut was fatty while mine was fine.

All in all a very nice experience.

Was recommended by a friend. The food was awful and overcooked. Service from the server was poor and this was on an afternoon when the place was nearly empty.

I like to sit at the bar, staff there is nice and helping to choose the 'right' beer.
At the entrance the staff is not so nice, a bit snobby.
Food is average.

My wife and I went on our date night. The food was great, but the best part was certainly the beer. They had a wide selection.

We stopped in before seeing a movie at the courthouse theatre and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Amazing choice of beers!
