Great service! Employee's went out of their way to assist with anything you needed.
Billy the manager went beyond the call of duty to help us find a destination after dinner. Best service in Milwaukee

Old style steakhouse, wood panel including. Don't get me wrong, the food is very nice and well prepared but the menu is just very very boring. It's sort of like what you would have expected on a steak house menu about 15 years ago. Perhaps it's somewhere to send your parents for their wedding anniversary.

Wow. Exceptional food prepared by talented chefs, great waitstaff, romantic atmosphere, staggeringly good desserts, a top notch wine cellar, and the world's best bourbon (Blanton's) in stock - what more could you want? Thank goodness there is a chef in this country that knows how to cook steak so it ends up looking like food, not some autopsy leftover. My Filet Mignon was tender, moist, flavorful, and (gasp!) cooked all the way through - silent proof that the dolts that can only make steak rare, ultra-rare, and "did you even bother to thaw it" are just incompetent.
I noted that other reviewers said it's the same as all the other Capital Grilles - I think that's high praise. Next time I'm on a business trip, I'll know where to go to get a guaranteed good meal.

Upscale, yet comfortable. The food is terrific, and the service was excellent. It is fairlly pricey, but what you'd expect for this type of restaurant.

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.
