“Good but absolutely not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Stopped in with a few friends and had some great drinks but when the meal came, the steaks were good but not what I have had at other locations around the states. The staff was very knowledgeable, friendly and prompt but I am not sure The Capital Grille will be at the top of my lists anytime soon for what should be a "great steak". There are plenty of local steak houses with a much better quality steak.

“Great personal service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012 via mobile

Our waiter was Dustin & he was wonderful! Even noticed we were from out of town & write on a piece of paper areas to check out & things to do while we were in Milwaukee. Food was also great, you have to try the truffle oil fries!!!!! I had the seared tuna steak, had 3 different dipping oils to go with: Wasabi, ginger & soy. My husband had the burger which he said was great & he eats a lot of different burgers. Good decent prices for lunch for an upscale place. Would visit again if back in town!

“Steak place that is average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

Milwaukee has many steak places and this one just is medium to the rest of them. Not bad just not exceptional. Like lunch better than dinner.

“Very interesting menu and well served”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

This appears to be the only first class restaurant in the immediate area. Wide variety of dishes on the menu for those who are not meat eaters. Pleasant room and very attentive service.
