We met our daughter and husband here for a Sunday Brunch. Boy were we surprised. The place opened at 11:00am, and by 11:30 is was packed. The menu has lot's of options, offering both a brunch menu and a lunch menu. We had drinks from the bar, which were very good. Our service was great, and all four of the... More

I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone in need of a group Brunch location. We went to Cap City to celebrate my daughters birthday with several family members. The food was fantastic and they served cinnamon rolls instead of pre-meal bread. My children were thrilled. The service provided by our server, Chris c, was phenomenal. He made a meal... More

Place is crowded on a Friday night. We had reservations so they was able to seat us on the exact time. Our server was Todd and he did a great job. The food really came out fast and it was very good. I had the Fish and Chips and it was great. The southern chicken was also very good. The... More

Always a great experience. The rather dated decor is for a reason...brings back a bit of nostalgia. Menu price points are in-line. Many good menu choices, but they are best known for their meat loaf. I'm not a big fan of meat loaf, but I have to say it was excellent and very filling. Service is great and wait time... More

They have an excellent gluten free menu! They brought out gluten free cinnamon rolls along with the gluten filled cinnamon rolls for everyone else. I had a turkey burger on a gluten free bun with FRIES! It was very good. I highly recommend if you are gluten free (or even if you're not)!

Just arrived in town and wanted to grab a quick bite. Nice atmosphere and very tasty food very accommodating for allergies (I'm gluten free). Try the Rueben (request extra sauce). Nice fries that are lightly seasoned.

My husband and I had my birthday dinner last month on a Saturday night. The appetizer mussels was good but the crab cake was just so so. Dinner pork chop tasted very good, tender and moist. Desert creme brulee taste alright but the layer of hard caramel was very thick and taste bitter. The server was nice and helpful.

Despite tons of restaurants nearby, we all 4 always agree to return to Cap City. We cannot resist sharing a plate of the Blue Cheese Potato Chips. My daughter gets the Southern fried chicken every time and my son loves the meatloaf. My husband and I love the blue plate specials and the salads. The service is consistently well above... More

Our group of 10 friends met at Cap City Diner. We had a great time, food was excellent, service was good. I've been there twice in the last 4 months, both meals were excellent. I had the Pork Chop dinner and the Spicy Chicken Rigatoni. Both excellent!

Cap City is a delightful place for lunch or dinner. The traditional diner foods, meatloaf, liver and onions, are a stip above the best you have ever had. The Salmon is the best in town. Everyone I go here with loves it. On special days, it is very crowded at lunch so check the internet for the special of the... More
