    We come here 3 or 4 times a year and it's always great. Or server this past time was very courteous but efficient about it. We all enjoyed him. Almost all of us got the meatloaf because it's our favorite and that good! There are 5 people in my family and usually 3 or 4 of us choose to come here for our birthday. The desserts are really good too!

    The food was spot on and all in my party of 6 agreed. But, our waitress was kind of spacey. She brought the wrong entree out for me and made some excuse and then I had to ask her twice to bring me a condiment, so by the time I received it, I was halfway through my meal. I also had to ask for a refill on my beverage. She just wasn't as attentive as she should've been and how most servers at Cap City are. Perhaps she was out late the night before? Not my problem.

  • Sunday night family dinner
    Bmcc
    Dined on 8/17/2014
    Met with sons 25 and 23 for Sunday night dinner as they live nearby. A favorite of the family for many years. We each have a favorite dish. One son ordered the crab stuffed tilapia, which looked delicious and was according to him. The romano crusted chicken was very good as well and ordered by 2 in the family. I had the spicy chicken rigatoni, which I have had before. In this instance, the dish was not very spicy and the spicy sauce was very runny and lacked much flavor. Unusual for this dish. Service refilling drinks was a little slow. We were seated on the patio and it was not very crowded so unsure as to the reason. This visit was fine, but not up to the standards of previous visits.

    Cap City has become one of our favorite places to go. With a wide-selection of entries and first rate appetizers, my family's diverse demands (we run from vegetarian to carnivore) are generally met. Food is tasty, service is pretty fast, a little crowded inside. Nevertheless, it is unlikely that we do not go there once a month.

    We have a 4 month old baby, and brunch at Cap City was a breeze. They had a sling available, and the background noise kept the little one content. We were with his great grandparents who were happy and impressed with the food and restaurant. Perhaps they'll visit more often now.

    WE ARRIVED EARLY AND WERE SEATED RIGHT AWAY I WAS VERY SURPRISED THAT THE RESTAURANT WAS SO BUSY FOR A MONDAY EARLY EVENING. I HAD THE ROMANO FRIED CHICKEN WITH THE BUTTER PASTA. AND IT WAS WONDERFUL THE CHICKEN WAS VERY TENDER AND MOIST. I USUALLY GET THE MEATLOAF AND DECIDED TO LIVE OUTSIDE THE BOX AND IT WAS A GREAT CHOICE. SERVER WAS FINE. IT WAS A VERY NICE PLACE TO CELEBRATE MY BIRTHDAY WITH MY MOTHER AND FRIEND.

    Many people turn up their noses at the suggestion of liver and onions because they were force fed bad l&o as a child. Despite my mother's bad prep, I love it! And Cap City takes it to a new level with a balsamic reduction. I've always said that a restaurant the has the courage to put it on a menu has to be able to make it well. Cap City does just that. And did I mention how addictive the Maytag Blue Chips are? Yum!

    I've been to this restaurant before and like it a lot. I used the on-line reservation feature for the first time and was pleasantly surprised (nice table in the corner). We had a small gathering at 1pm on Saturday for my daughter's 20th birthday. The service was excellent and the waiter (Clay) was very attentive. The meal included a huge slice of chocolate cake for her birthday which was a nice touch. Highly recommended!

    You should, no you absolutely have to order the Maytag blue cheese chips appetizer at cap city. They are to die for. Also there meatloaf is the best I have ever put in my mouth along with their special of beef stroganoff... I've never had a bad meal here and I have been many times. Did I mention the staff is always extremely friendly and knowledgable about the menu.
