  • "It was a great experience, and I'd love to go again."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "One member in our party of four received potatoes instead of rice, contrary to the menu's description. Vegetables were primarily carrots. The server apologized for the kitchen's error and brought rice separately--after a wait of several minutes. Food was not memorable."

  • "Met a girlfriend here and we sat outside. The only thing was there was not enough shade, wish they had umbrellas out to provide more shade but the sun kept creeping in. It was early July so not too terribly hot but under the beating sun it become a little unbearable. We had the veggie burgers - which were good and crumbly but yummy. The fries were okay. Service was solid and noise level was appropriate for outdoor seating - not too loud. It is in Shirlington so expect dogs everywhere and if you don't like them, sit close to the building otherwise they will stop and bug you."

  • "The food was pretty good, but the value wasn't great - overpriced. I enjoyed the ribs and would recommend them! My wife liked the fish tacos. My son enjoyed his grilled steak salad and it looked good. The kids mini corn dogs were a big hit, but likely came out of a box from Costco and the kids mac & cheese was Kraft straight from the box. No fruit side was available for kids. For being a brewery, the beer was very mediocre. I had the sampler, which included their 4 core beers and one specialty. The Kolsch was ok but the others were less notable. So much so that I can barely recall them 3 days later. The server was pleasant, but seemed annoyed and rolled her eyes when we asked for a to go box for our fries. Overall she did a good job."

  • "Thoroughly surprised at how good the nachos were! Our server was super friendly on the patio and served up some great beer. The red wheat n blue is worth a try"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "We enjoyed brunch on Sunday, but the wait staff seemed a bit overwhelmed with the Father's Day crowd when we arrived at Noon (fortunately we had a reservation). Things took a little while to arrive and we had to request silverware after our food arrived, while the table next to us had to borrow our salt. Otherwise, we love the al fresco dining and the brunch is tasty. We've eaten here before and we'll go back."

  • "Quick service, tasty food. Besides the restaurant's beers, there are also special cocktails available."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "great menu for both beer and food, lots of choices for everyone. Awesome on a Friday night after work to chill out and enjoy."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "We had an ok meal at Capitol City. Most of us liked our entrees, and the complimentary soft pretzels were a nice touch. However, our party member who ordered the ahi tuna salad wished he had sent it back. The tuna was cold and extremely fishy tasting. Stick to pub food at this restaurant."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Nice place to have brunch on Mother's Day. Service was a bit slow - coffee refills and such did not come automatically."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "A celebration for a co-worker's retirement and we were not sure how many would attend. People kept coming and coming and the staff was so kind and made the event special. I loved my prohibition beer!"
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • "Appetizers and drinks were very good. Outdoor dining area was very comfortable and relaxing. Our waiter was awesome (I believe that his name was Khalil) or something similar."
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "In past years, we had enjoyed the Sunday Brunch at Capitol City Brewing Company. It has been about 2 years since we have dined here, as the restaurant stopped the Sunday brunches, so we stopped coming. I checked on the website to see if there would be a brunch, at least for Easter Sunday, and there was a brunch advertised. The brunch menu was different. A couple of my favorite items were no longer on the menu. I think the restaurant would be a better choice for us for a lunch and/or supper, especially to sample the beers."

  • "I've been coming to this location for years and have always found the food selection and quality to be constantly good. It's a comfortable place with many choice and great beer!!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The cocktails weren't strong, the white wine wasn't cold enough and for the price of the drinks, you'd think they'd be better. The food was mediocre and I will definitely Not be returning."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Nothing negative to say about our dining experience. We had a good time, and the food and beverages were good. Service was very good. Restaurant was nowhere near capacity, and getting a reservation through Open Table the day prior for prime time dining hours was effortless. Not the best restaurant in town, but I'd go back."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "I was traveling for business, and this restaurant came up in a bar and grill search on Yelp. We were looking for a place to watch the Sweet Sixteen evening games. This place has great beer and is a family friendly restaurant at the same time. The bar is big, but so is the restaurant. The food is pretty good; the pretzels with honey mustard horseradish to start off the meal are a bonus. I had the spinach cheese soup which lacked a little flavor, but the hamburger and homemade potato chips were delicious! The service we received was exceptional and relaxed. The restaurant is located in a cute area of Arlington. I would recommend this restaurant for a casual dining experience."

  • "Very accommodating when you have children in terms of food choices and space. Food is great and so is the beer."

  • "Girls night out was disappointing due to lack of menus, poor service and mediocre food. Not sure who trains staff but they need to be retrained."

  • "Food wasn't anything special. Service wasn't great."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Looking at the reviews I expected more from Capitol City Brewing Company. The whole experience was only fair. Gordon Biersch at Tysons is definitely better if you are looking for a brewery experience."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "We had been trying to get into Capital City Brewing for awhile. It was always so crowded and Shirlington has much more to offer. This time we made a reservation and actually arrived early, but still had to wait until just about time, understood. We were seated and started to wait - 15 minutes before the waiter ever showed up, other waiters kept walking by, but no one asked, questioned, nothing. Okay, but he is now here it has got to get better. The water came, then two very nice beers, followed by only adequate food. Twenty minutes into my meal my beer was gone, but no waiter for a new one. Thirty minutes after his first appearance he was back, my meal long gone, water empty, and no beer. Capital City lost a beer sale, and a customer."

  • "Staying nearby in a hotel on a business trip. Dropped in to have a beer. It was happy hour with half price beers and $5 appetizers. I had the Prohibition Porter and the Dark IPA. Both were excellent and I accompanied them with an order of nachos with all the good stuff on them. I am a big eater but the nachos filled me up, so no dinner, but the list of burgers looked great. I would have been back the next night if it had been a two night trip. The whole bill for two pints and the nachos only came to $13.20 plus tip. What a deal in the DC area!"
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "I organized a professional development meeting with colleagues at Capital City Brewing as a place to enjoy a social atmosphere while getting some work done. It was a great pick. We were able to enjoy some happy hour foods, sample some Capital City brews, and enjoy a collegial business meeting and enjoy a social atmosphere."

    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Although you're not going to get amazing food at a chain restaurant, Cap City offers satisfying dishes. It's really more of an after-work place where you'd grab a few beers with friends or coworkers."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "The beers are great, the food was good but not exceptional and the service was good. It's a great place to go for a locally brewed beer on tap but leave enough time to find a parking spot. It was very busy on a Sat night and it took forever to get parking, we only got a spot because someone was pulling out."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "The beer was delish, and the food was tasty. Nothing too fancy, just right. :)"
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "It's just one of those non-descript burger and random entree joints. I suppose if you're a beer connoisseur this is a great place, otherwise the food was just ehhh... Ruby Tuesdayish."

  • "I took my daughter and 8 of her teenage friends here to celebrate her birthday. Our server Patrick was an awesome and very attentive server. Even though we had a large party he was very patient and the food came out very quickly. This is a must go place for a large casual group."

  • "Went to DC location and it was excellent. There was confusion and we did not have a server til we flagged someone down and they were overwhelmed with other guests so took a while to get drinks food etc and food definitely not the same as DC location cause we ordered the same entrees we did there about 2 months ago. It was decent food and ok service but definitely a little disappointed. Took some friends with us cause we had such a good experience at the other location only to be disappointed :-/"
