Description: Our Place is Yours: Old Capitol Grill & Smokehouse has become one of Colorado’s favorite eateries for locals and visitors alike. The Capitol offers up a full menu of on-site smoked meats, classic American fare, featuring our housemade dishes with some unique twists, in an historic setting. We have brought back some of the grandeur of the building from its heyday as the capitol building of the Colorado Territory and in celebration of Colorado’s beauty. The colors, light fixtures and wall art are reflective of the mid-1800s period, when Colorado’s Territorial Legislature met within its walls.

We actually watched a couple sit down and it about ten minutes, when no one came to help them in that time, they got up to leave.

The artichoke dip was some of the best I have ever had but the rest of the meal was just ok. We'll try someplace else next time.

Food was moderate, not great but not bad. Well priced for quality. I would give the food a 3.  The service however was terrible!  It took 90 min to have lunch at an off time (1:30) with the place less than 1/2 full. It took over 45 min to bring 3 cold sandwiches and a salad. It then took another 30 min when we were done to get our check. Would not go back.

This place is huge inside, very family friendly. I found the menu to be average and the food was all fine.

We had lunch here on Sunday. Liked the atmosphere, but the food was nothing to get excited about. Chose a salad (with chicken, corn, tortila strips). Clearly had simply opened a bad and poured it into the bowl -- basic iceberg lettuce with shredded carrots. A few things tossed in, including overcooked chicken and bottled dressing. My son had chicken tenders & fries. Just what you'd expect... deep fried out of a frozen bag. Maybe the sandwiches are better? Definitely skip the salads if you eat here.

There isn't a lot to say about this restaurant. The burgers are pretty good quality and the meals are garnished with a tiny apple. The building is also pretty cool if you like old architecture.
