Diner Reviews
  • "The perfect spot before attending a show in the downtown area."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "I choose this returant because I had a downtown date night planned. They seated us quickly and got us drinks right away. The drinks were excellent. I ordered the sesame salmon but was brought sesame chicken. The only problem was it was a Friday during Lent and I couldn't eat meat. Due to my other plans I couldn't wait for the correct meal. I would have given it a better review if id actually had dinner here."

  • "Was in town for a convention four years ago and ate here both nights. Loved it! Happened to pass through again and stopped in. Live for their crutons and the catfish Orleans is everything!"

  • "This is a great spot right in the middle of downtown, close to any event held downtown. The food is excellent, service is great, great view of the Mississippi river"

  • "Very convenient for attending functions at the Manship. Food is always good and priced reasonably. We can make reservations easily. Service is always very good. The only thing negative is the high sound level."

  • "It was a busy night--2 nearby concerts and a Mardi Gras parade. The pace of the meal was great, even though the restaurant was crowded. The tuna was perfectly cooked. The service was good. We made the concert with time to spare."

  • "We went here because we wanted to be downtown but didn't want to pay a premium. We should have. My sister got the Greek pasta salad, I got the tenderloin Caesar and my other sister got the Madeira tenderloin. I don't think our tenderloin was actually a tenderloin... Super chewy, not flavorful. Disappointing. The pasta salad was okay but it's pasta salad- hard to mess it up. Certainly wasn't exceptional. Next time, we will suck it up and just go to a pricier place. What we got was not worth what we paid. Vinyl table cloths and ugly chairs.. Felt like I was in a church banquet hall. I honestly would have preferred Applebees..."

  • "My husband and I went Valentines Day dinner here and it was just "eh." The sauce on my chicken was suppose to have crawfish and it didn't; His need tenderloin was way undercooked and had to be sent back. They didn't have a filet on the menu which surprised me for the kind of restaurant it was. Great location, but I wouldn't go back. The food was just okay and the service was below expectation."

  • "Frankly speaking, Capital City was my B or C choice for Valentines. Not any more. We were there Valentines Day. We started with crab cakes and Bang Bang Shrimp. DON"T MISS THE SHRIMP. Crab Cakes were good. Entrees Madeira Tenderloin, Teriyaki Tuna Steak, Catfish Orleans. All excellent. I'm not a catfish fan, but I would order THAT catfish in a heartbeat. Kitchen was actually unhappy with the size of my wife's Tuna Steak (it was not small) so they sent her a 2nd one! Madeira sauce was brilliant on the tenderloin, perfectly cooked to my order. Desert was carrot cake, bread pudding, chocolate cake. The carrot cake was unbelievably good and the slice gigantic. Breadpudding fresh and citrusy. Excellent for Dinner."

  • "Did not enjoy our food, salad needed to sent back lettuce was wilted and the steaks were not cooked to desired tempeture."

  • "Everything was great, food, service and drinks! We went before a concert downtown, perfect location, perfect start to a great evening."

  • "This is not the Capital Grill that you see in most major downtown cities. Food choices are very limited - everything breaded, fried, or salted. My snow peas had more salt on them than McD's french fries."

  • "Met for a business lunch. Service was very attentive without being obtrusive. Food was very good lunch fare."

  • "We enjoyed the ambience overall, but the noise volume is a bit on the louder side. The crabcake and salsa appetizer were dynamite. The fish I ordered was average and side of parmesian grits were good. We had carrot cake for dessert wish was different from the traditional with added nuts and flavor. Overall it was an enjoyable experience and we were seated right away even though we were slightly early for our reservation."

  • "This was my 4th time eating at CCG, 3rd with TERRIBLE service. Please re-train your wait staff. Doubt I will make a 5th trip out."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "We had had nice dinner at CCG Saturday night. Everyone was friendly and the waiter was attentive. This made up for not bringing us the extra sides we ordered and not asking us for a drink order. The portions were large and more than we could eat. The prices were very fair. It would be good for families."

  • "We like to dine at Capital City Grill whenever something special is going on downtown (we saw a play at the River Center this particular night). We have never been disappointed with CCG and always look forward to going there. Both of our entrees were delicious and we each found a wine that we enjoyed. Our server was very attentive without being overbearing. Dinner at CCG was a great way to set a positive tone for the rest of the evening."
