“Delicious after theatre dinner!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We had an early dinner and the food and service was wonderful. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly,others had salmon which was prepared with a citrus sauce. The vegetable sides were excellent. Desert was decadent, creme brulee, chocolate cake and coconut cream pie all beautifully presented and delicious. Price was reasonable.

“Great lunch”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Great experience, from the host at the door to the check. The service was great, the food exceptional and the fellow diners genteel. No hats, cell phones or loud people. The room was great, The menu was typical steakhouse, but everything perfectly executed. Service was friendly and seamless. Get steak and clam chowder. Good selection of wines by the glass. Very good cocktails. It's like dining with your parents 30 years ago.

Very nice service, excellent food. The lunch crowd is professional and formal. The menu is varied and they will cook anything, the way you would like. Big salads and specialty lunches.

“Just what we expected and wanted.”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

I love classic American steak houses and as a chain the Capital Grill never fails to deliver. The Philadelphia experience was just so, great steaks ,superb wine selection and my personal test ,'a perfectly dry Gibson before dinner.

“Great service”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We had excellent service and the food was very good as well. Dessert was fantastic and they had an amazing wine selection. While it is pricey, if you go in knowing that, you won't be disappointed.
