A very busy place but they do find you a place right away. The service is great and the food is great. You can't complain about the food. I rather eat here than any other diner in the area. Definitely will come back

Not clean service was not the best. Prices not for what you get but with the bad press they have gotten I'm not to inclined to go back there

My husband, sister and I went to Harrisburg to spend time with my son and grandson who is leaving for the Airforce. We made plans to go to IHOP. We got there at 10:15 a.m. and the place was mobbed, the people in the lobby waiting were rude. We decided to take our breakfast party of seven and headed over... More

Stopped in very early one morning to have breakfast. It had been a while since we were there. I was hungry, so I ordered the Steak and Eggs with home fries and toast. We're not talking some scrawny little piece of steak. It's a 10 oz. NY Strip. Cooked and seasoned perfectly. Eggs were done the way I like them... More

Yum! Excellent coffee, which is a must. The breakfast potatoes surprised me - much better than expected - delicious. My favorite, though, was the ham. Very clean, good food & great service - what else do you need? We will definitely be repeat customers, even though we don't live nearby.

This place has great food and great service and priced right. We have been to harrisburg so many times and we eat breakfast everyday that we are in harrisburg, and have dinner there at least 1 time while there. We are from the western part of the state and travel to harrisburg at least 2 times a year.

My wife and I met one of her cousins for lunch recently at Capitol Diner. I was pleasently surprised by the quality of food and efficient service. We were seated right away and our server was very good in getting our drinks and mentioning the daily specials and making recommendations. We each ordered something different and we were all pleased... More

This diner was extremely clean and comfortable. You can tell the staff takes cleanliness very seriously. All the metal and glass sparkled. The interior was decorated far more elegantly than most diners and gave a very upscale appearance. The staff was very attentive and service was prompt for a busy Friday night. The menu had a broad selection and the... More
