Nice for a brew pub. Wait staff was very good, we had a party of 7, waiter did not rush us letting us enjoy our food and brews, and one person asked if she could have a separate check and he did that for the entire table. I was impressed by that. It's true they give you fresh hot soft pretzels for free. I am on a porter kick, the Prohibition Porter was very good.

Buniness Lunch in DC
I was impressed with the follow up the morning of our reservation when I received an call from the venue to remind us and check if we were still on. I had requested a somewhat private area so we could discuss business with our guests and the private upstairs area that was provided was perfect. Will be back for sure

Was surprised to find such
Was surprised to find such great Happy Hour specials! The service was a bit slow, but it was also during a big hockey game and it was packed, so I was understanding. Any slower and I would have been more upset!

Great atmosphere, great beer
Great atmosphere, great beer list, and great menu. The Capitol City Nachos are a favorite, and there is a seasonal cherry beer that was really delicious.

Had been a while since I had been to Cap City, no sure why. But, really enjoyed being back there. Good beer, love the complimentary pretzels, half-price drafts.... Good service, great street-view booth...

A Fun Evening
Party of 8 with 2 babes in arms. Treated the kids great. Appetizers were on happy hour special and excellent. Options available for sides. I went for the fried green beans and were great. All good meals.

Good beer and food, hard to find
The beer and food were very good, and I would recommend this location for either sports watching, enjoying a good beer, or a very reasonably priced beer and lunch combination.
However, I had difficulty locating the restaurant since there is no indication from New York Ave that Capitol City Brewing Company is in the building. The entrance is on H street, rather than the advertised New York Ave address.

Fun introduction to DC
I was hosting a workshop in town and had many visitors attending. I wanted something fun and local for our first night out and settled on Capitol City. The food was great and they had on our guests favorite hockey team. The only downsides were that it was a little noisy for good conversation and the service was a little slow. The place was packed, which accounts for both issues in my book. I would definitely go back, and all my guests felt it was a great experience.

Great for happy hour appetizers and drinks. Appetizers are huge, ordered 8 appetizers for 10 people, needed nothing else! The food is very good, the service always too!

Good family place and good beer.
Good place to take family and get decent quality food. Beer was good as well. Wasn't too busy.

Great food and fast service!
We went for thr first time on Friday before a concert at the Verizon Center. I took my 5-year old daughter too. It was during happy hour, so the place was crowded and loud. We were seated immediately, away from the bar. Our waiter was very attentive to our needs. The food came out within minutes of ordering. I was impressive with the refilling of drinks, and all ouf our needs. They food was good. Our waiter pointed out the $5 happy hour appetizer menu items which was helpful. It was a great place to go back.

Good food and beer
The food here was good. I really liked the complimentary soft pretzels in stead of bread to begin the meal. The house beers were goodas well, especially the Amber Wave. The only complaint is that our server spoke softly. That, combined with music that was just a little too loud, the ordering process was a little difficult.

Nice place for quick bite.
Good basic pub fare. Nothing spectacular as far as quality food, just good basic stuff. Nice selection of beer. Good service.

Great experience at the Capitol
We ate twice at this restaurant while in Washington as it was close to our hotel on 14th street. The food was reasonably priced and tasted great. I got a turkey burger on our first meal (as we were on our diets at that point of our vacation) and a regular burger on our last night. We got the fried green beans and there were complimentary soft pretzels with each meal with a really nice spicy mustard. On our last meal we got dessert.....i had the flan and my wife had the strawberry shortcake. Had a very positive experience both times. The only downside was that it was somewhat noisy but we were there at the busiest time so that was to be expected. We would go back again if we were ever back in town

Great for service and starters
We filled up on the starters -- the green beans were fabulous and gobbled up by our son -- so that the main course was a struggle to eat. The steak and cheese sandwich had a bit too much bread, but if I hadn't had a starter I might have thought otherwise. The waitress was fabulous, anticipating our every need, except when we wanted to pay and get our son to bed, but another waitress helped out. It was a convenient venue and good experience.

The food was good, came out fast for a low budget sit down restaurant.

I've eaten there before and I'll eat there again! The food is standard fare - but very good. The variety of beers, and their creativity in crafting them, is what really sets it apart. Good food, good drinks, good prices - can't beat that!

Great Meeting Spot
Met with family on a Friday night and had a great time. Service was fast and friendly and food was delicious. Noise level was high, but environment was lively.

value in DC
We had a small group coming from the convention center and were hungry and needed beer! Pleasantly surprised by a basket of warm soft pretzels and yummy mustard dip on the table soon after we arrived, great with the beer! Nice bar food options that were a little different and not too pricey.

Fantastic night at CCBC
It was the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, Caps were playing... The place was pretty empty... At first I was worried as we were seated in one of the Kitchen booths (those located in front of the open air kitchen). Staff were yammering, screaming, having fun.... I thought... oh my... BUT, then they finished their work, and came out, apologized to us, explained their situation, which was completely reasonable and fun to hear. Just love the workers there. Our food was perhaps the best we ever had there, super hot (temp), prompt service, and their great beer.... And so reasonably priced! You realize - right? - that you get happy hour beer prices at tables... Not many places do this... Cheer CCBC! See ya next time...
