We were there for a business meeting over lunch. The service and food were great. The atmosphere overall was good. The hostess seated us in a back room. Initially it was us and a few other people. Shortly after our entire party arrived and we began our meeting the hostess brought in a very large group to seat in the center of the room and the noise level increased to a point that it was hard for us to conduct our meeting. Will try again in the future and see how it goes.

Best steak ever!
We were so pleased with the service, atmosphere, and food.It was our first time and we were so glad to find this great place. We will definitely go back.

Our family tends to come here for special occasions (this time Mother's Day). We like the atmosphere and particuarily the service.
Our orders are always made to our requests. The prices are not to the level that we would make it a weekly event. The only real concern we have is the cushioning of the booths. The booths appear aged now and the cushioning is minimal causing our legs to bottom out on the boards.

Capital City Chophouse experience
Reservations are definitely suggested because this is a busy place! Also, take your charge card, because it is a bit pricey-- but well worth it! The service is beyond compare, the atmosphere is good and the food is fabulous! I started with the Calamari appetizer-- Wow! The best calamari I have eaten anywhere! Flash fried for tenderness. It comes with fried green beans on a bed of leafy greens with a Thai chili sauce that is incredible!!!! The ribeye steak, with a loaded baked potato and brocolli...perfection! The steak was cooked medium. It had a warm red center, was so flavorful and juicy that I am salivating 3 days later just from remembering! Dessert was tempting, but I was just too full! By far the best steak experience ever!!!

Great Work Outing
Our table was ready and waiting for us when we arrived, which we all did at different times, since it was after work. The waiter was very patient and understanding when we had 2 (out of 8) people cancel at the last minute. He suggested wine and apps to us, while we were waiting. The apps were wonderful, the salads were just right, the food came out perfectly, and was delicious. The noise level was a little high, but that was due to a much larger party who was having a fantastic time. We were there later than I had anticipated, (after 9) due to conversations & enjoying our meals, and the staff was a little antsy for us to finish up.
My only regret is that I didn't save room for the Mile High Chocolate cake - it looked amazing!

Very good restauant near RDU
The Capital City Chophouse is an excellent place for lunch and dinner with business partners, colleagues or family. Food and drinks are very high quality, the service is very friendly and helpful, i.e. excellent. The restaurant is easy accessible. I can definitely recommend it. I will continue visiting it with pleasure.

Off the beaten path
I forget that this is such a great restaurant because I never pass by the location. I have gone there off and on for many
years and always have a wonderful dining experience.

Capital City Chop House Review
If you are looking for a place to take friends and family for a special occasion then this restaurant is a no brainer. They make it a very easy choice if you want really good food and service to make your guests feel special.

I was in the mood for steak. It was my girlfriends birthday and I had not been to the chophouse in a couple years. Its fairly far away from where I live. The steaks were great and really satisfied me and my girlfriend. As good or better than Simpsons or the Angus Barn and a better value. Nice quiet venue as well. I highly recommend. She was blown away by the place and we will be back with her daughter in a month or so for her college graduation dinner.
6/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was great. Service
The food was great. Service was fast. The food came quickly and was hot. I would recommend this restaurant.
6/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent as always
Excellent food & service coupled with a quiet & very nice environment. A great place for a special birthday celebration late lunch/early dinner.
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the food. Was a little worried walking in. Today is more modern and I thought the food would be like the place looked but it was sensational. Thanks again chop house.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Visited this place several times since I've been working in RTP. Food is always delicious and the service is great.
7/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a good choice
I have trouble not ordering one of their great steaks but this time I tried the lamb...wonderful. My wife's salmon was excellent as well. It is also nice to have really good wines by the glass. The oyster-spinach salad is one of the best. My only complaint is that I ate too much.

7.15.13 Lunch at CCC
Just a casual business lunch with a customer. I meet business associates often for lunch at Capital City Chop House. The food is consistently good, as is the service, everyone in the RDU/RTP area knows where it is and it's easy to get to. I had fish tacos on this visit. Very good.
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent wine list, best
Excellent wine list, best 'chops' in the triangle, consistently excellent food - service - dining experience.
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and the service were fantastic. We had an enjoyable meal.
These are the things that keep the restaurant from moving to the next level. The wine list was not as extensive as it should have been. Frozen thaw and bake bread instead of fresh. Additionally the restaurant was dark, and things looked dated and drab. A bright open restaurant would be a more inviting meal.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was delicious
The food here was awesome! Even the salad was great. Once we got our waiter's attention, the service was great. Apparently there was a change to his section, so he didn't know he had our table. And the cookie desert was amazing!!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always great food
I love the tuna appetizers with spinach. The steaks are aged to perfection and delicious.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been to Capital City Chophouse several times on business, and wanted to treat my wife to an outstanding dinner in a high end restaurant!! I started with the blue crab bisque, truly amazing!! My wife had the chopped salad, she claimed that it was the best salad she has ever had!! I had the caesar salad which was also excellent!! For our entrees, we both chose the sauteed tilapia and scampi with garlic parmesan orecchiette (pasta) and steamed asparagus - just awesome!!

Succulent prime rib - cut to order.
I dine here occasionally for business dinners but also make the drive from Durham for dinner with my wife. We typically dine here on Friday or Saturday nites - when prime rib is on the menu. We appreciate that we can order and share a juicy thick cut (e.g., 24 oz); plenty for the two of us, with leftovers for another meal each. We also enjoy the oyster salad - but suggest to share so you're not full before the entree arrives. If there's room left, the key lime pie is very good. The place is quite empty and relaxed on the weekend, so don't expect a lively atmosphere. We like the quiet atmosphere and have consistently received good service. Altogether, a recommendation for very good steaks at a very reasonable price.

As usual, great steaks and seafood
Good Wine recommendation by the Waiter
Great Service by the entire staff. Continually asked how everything was without becoming imposing.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a great experience to dine in an establishment that puts its primary focus on the two ingredients that make such an experience a pleasure..the food and the customer. Our waiter, ERIC, was both knowledgeable, witty, engaging and attentive to all our dining needs, and food was the best quality and taste I have had in a very long time. My wife and I were there to celebrate our anniversary with another couple also having an anniversary, and all thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience. When ERIC was aware of our reason for dining there that evening, he brought us a delicious complementary dessert. Their way of saying congratulations; and a wonderful ending to a great meal and great celebration. Thank You Chop House!! and THANK YOU, ERIC!

Capital City Chophouse
Food was good, we had steaks. Enjoyed the experience but did think dinner was overpriced for the location.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant greeted us promptly and acknowledged our special event. The food was well presented and tasty. The wait staff was very attentive. The only downside was for a romantic dinner we were placed in a room that already had a large party dining casually. The ambiance could have been better but overall we had a very nice time.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The filet is said to be the best in the city. The tuna appetizer is the best I have ever tasted. The Chop House staff are great about acknowledging special occasions.

Good Steaks and Prime Rib
This restaurant is within walking distance of several hotels (Cambria Suites, Hyatt Place, Country Inn and Suites) very close to the Raleigh Durham Airport. We were staying at the Cambria Suites overnight for an early am departure from RDU so it was a convenient choice for dinner. We were there early (5:30-6:30 pm) and the restaurant only had a handful of tables occupied. Service was attentive and food was good (tenderloin and prime rib entrees quite good; salads and creamed spinach also tasty). Wine by the glass was reasonably priced. Would return if we are here overnight again for an early morning flight.

Great Place for Catch-Up
Nice place to have lunch with riends and relax in catching up. They didn't rush us thrugh the meal and the food was not the ordinary! Service was always available for our needs! A great first experience!

32 Years and Counting
Took my dear bride, of 32 years, to The Capital City Chop House for our anniversary. Nice atmosphere and great food. We had a wonderful time and hope to return soon.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The view from second floor dining was awesome for our business lunch! The 1st floor diners energy was high, but did not distract from our experience. The smoked brisket tacos were amazing as were the sweet pork enchiladas and chicken quesidillas. Will definitely return for more business lunches and to try more dishes.

Out of the Ordinary
I had been to the Chop House previously - I decided to take a friend with a "choosy" appetite. I chanced it after looking the menu over when I had been there. He had a small steak and onion rings, nothing too exotice but "raved" about the tenderness and flavor of the steak!!! He actually is looking forward to our next visit. By the way I had a salad with steak on top and it, too, was "the best". We had lunch in the library where we could talk to each other without shouting! lovely!
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our waiter Bob was great. Very attentive. He move our table upon request after we were seated to a more desirable table.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a work dinner. Other than one little glitch where we had a medium well and medium steak mixed up, it was a very good experience. Good food.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
The blue crab bisque and sandwich
The blue crab bisque and sandwich were excellent. Service was terrific
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good alternative to high prices
Good alternative to the expensive steakhouses. Took advantage of weekend prime rib special (29.95) and were very happy with quality of the meat and sides. Portion is not huge, but what we expected for the price and we had room for a nice appetizer- sashimi tuna was excellent and good-sized.
We like to relax at dinner and the waiter picked up on that and went with our rhythym - he was always there when we needed him but left us alone to enjoy our pre-dinner drinks as well.
My only surprise is how many families with small children come here. Maybe due to airport location? It can raise the noise level, though we were accomodated when we asked for a table away from children. I like peace and quiet at dinner, not someone else's unruly kids.

Introducing Someone New to the Area
This is a great place to take someone new to the area to let them know of the great variety of food and service available here. chop house never disappoints! Fresh and delicious salads with great protein toppings, such a selection of well prepared and tasty foods! Of course their other luncheon entrees are just as deleicious, it just that I have a hard time getting past the great choice they offer in salads! Come see the fare. The service is impeccable!
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dining experience!
My wife and I really enjoyed this restaurant. It is a bit pricy, but we felt that it was well worth it. We both had the "Tide and Tundra", an 8 ounce filet mignon and an 8 ounce grilled lobster tail. The steaks were cooked perfectly and the lobster was amazing! The service was great and everyone that worked there made us feel very welcome! We will be back!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food / average service
My first visit for a meal to celebrate a life goal. Food lived up to my expectations and i would return based on that alone.
I expected more attentive service for the price.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent food and outstanding
Excellent food and outstanding service, as always. I've never been disappointed at the Chop House.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Food/ pricey but worth it!
We had an Appetizer Oysters Rockefeller and it was the best I have ever had. We finished off with Prime rib and they had a sweetened Horseradish that was Amazing. It was all excellent Quality. I highly recommend the Capital CIty Chop House.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fantastic place for a group
We picked the location for the airport -people traveling in from around the country. It was terrific! Great service and food and since the restaurant is divided into many rooms, we could hear each other despite the massive table.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Qaulity business lunch
Capital City Chop house represents a quality place for a business lunch, close to the airport. They have a wide varied menu that everyone can find something they like. Booths were a bit crowded and the noise level is on the higher side, but overall a quality, convenient experience that I will repeat.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Have not had a Rib Eye this good in YEARS. Prime Ribs were great and a great deal @ $25.
Greg's service was friendly and VERY attentive.
Going back next week for sure
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
the steaks were excellent!! Great flavor, excellently prepared! The special for today was a delicious steak and shrimp with a crab cake and bernaise sauce!
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Invited business colleagues to dinner. Ordered steaks, tuna sashimi and seabass. The seabass on a bed of spinach over NC sweet potato mash was outstanding. Wine list is limited, but food quality is very good. The calamari and brushcetta appetizers were very, very good. I would definitely make a return visit.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good venue for happy hour
Very lively place. I hosted a client appreciation happy hour and had much success. many thanks to my waiter Lex for being so on the ball. The brie was a big hit as well as the crab dip. Sashimi was a suprise and much appreciated. Thank you!
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
I had the ribeye with baked potato and salad. Fantastic. Better than the Angus Barn and compares with Ruth's Cris and Sullivans.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Was very pleased with this find! Had the Prime Rib and it was prime right!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM

The Capital City Chophouse is great for a business meeting with a central quick access location, professional environment and excellent food.
