“Great Diner Food!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

My family and I are staying in Harrisburg to enjoy Hershey Park. We came here to Capitol Diner based on the reviews. We enjoyed the food here. The portions are big and and they have a variety on their menu. My daughter has food allergies and she was able to eat here. The waitress answered all of my questions. Decent prices! Will be back.

“Average Diner”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

This diner was pretty average. The food was your basic diner food, decent coffee though, and average breakfast food, nothing special. The service although friendly was so slow. So I can't really say this place is Ok for a quick meal near your hotel because it's not. So unless everything else is closed there is no real reason to go here.

“A classic diner!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Excellent food options and service to match. We were there for breakfast, which got us set for the day - and then some. Very good prices and portions. Very near the mall and Hilton Garden Inn. Great choice before going to Hershey or heading toward Lancaster. They have all you need and more.
