Located on the corner of 11th and H street NW, Capitol City Brewing Co. opened its doors in 1992 as the first brew pub in our nation's capitol since prohibition, thus giving its citizens and its many visitors the freedom to enjoy some of the finest hand-crafted beer in the country. On the front of our menu is the symbol of freedom, the Lady Liberty, a statue found atop our namesake, the United States Capitol.

Nestled in the heart of Washington's rejuvenated downtown, this location has become a local landmark for celebrating great beer and food with family and friends. We have always taken great pride in our beer so come in and enjoy a cold pint of our very best and match it to one of the many menu selections tailored to the brews we serve.

Loved this place! Only thing that annoyed me was i made a reservation a week in advance and they tried to give us a terrible table up against a railing in the bar area. They did move us right away when we complained tho and manager was awesome. Food was terrific! Fast and delish and reasonably priced.

Terrible service and the food was barely edible. Waited 15 minutes at our table to get a waiteress. Don't go for brunch! Crab cake Benedict was a disaster and the bottomless mimosas were pure orange juice. We inquired about the contents of the drinks and we were told that the mimosas were half and half but they looked to be as dark as freshly squeezed orange juice.

It was freezing the restaurant! We had on our coats, gloves and hats! Not sure what happened to the heat but we couldn’t wait to finish and leave! Very uncomfortable!

The food and service was outstanding. I use a wheelchair and had enough space at the table I was put at to move freely. The server was exceptional. She was pleasant and patient. I will recommend you to everyone.

The places has a lot of potential but the issue with the heat not working properly to away from being able to enjoy the restaurant. Its was beyond cold in the restaurant, the waiter tried to give his best explanation but it was not his fault. Basic the heating unit is to small for the restaurant

The server Paul was excellent, sadly, the food wasn’t. The ribs were tender, but the crab cakes needed a different chef. We reordered the special to replace the crab cakes, which was a mixed grill. It appears that the kitchen staff can cook meat but not seafood—the shrimp were over grilled and burned, so there was nothing except a burnt taste.

The other staff/servers were kind, caring, and attentive as was our exceptional server Paul. Ask for him and beware ordering seafood!

Food was okay. A little bland. Service was slow and it wasn't busy. I’m hoping the server was off his game, and not usually that bad. Overall atmosphere was good.

We arrived at the time of our reservation and were seated immediately. The server was friendly but might have been new as he was unable to tell us the house wine label, or if the homemade root beer had caffeine. He didn't even know they offered home made root beer until my son asked for it.
My son ordered the kids macaroni and cheese with fruit, my husband ordered the crab cake platter and I ordered a salad with seared tuna. The food was served quickly despite the restaurant being quite busy. My son's macaroni and cheese was obviously kraft or an equivalent. My husband's crab cakes were over seasoned and dry. I removed the tuna from my salad as it didn't taste right, it looked perfect but it was just "off". The salad itself was good and I enjoyed the wasabi dressing.
While I could have said something to the waiter, I felt it wasn't worth the trouble. He only checked on us once and seemed to be more interested in flipping the table.

When we arrived our reservation was not in the system, even though I had confirmation from open table. Our server was nowhere to be found for 20-30 minutes.
