Grilled salmon topped with lemon butter and served with cilantro rice and veggies
3 corn tortillas stuffed with roasted tequila lime chicken or grilled Atlantic cod. Each topped with Pico, lime sour cream, and guacamole. Served with yucca fries
Fish & Chips
Atlantic Cod lightly battered in our Capitol Kolsch batter and fried to perfection with house made Old Bay tartar sauce, a dollop of coleslaw and served with our seasoned brew fries
not enough servers, wait stuff polite but undermanned, long time in between drinks, order and meal
This is a traditional brewery setting. Everything from fried somethings to a NY strip steak. A beer selection that covers most varieties & craft cocktails to boot! Happy hour is 4p-7p with $5 basic draft selections(2) & cheap apps. The fried chicken sandwich was delicious & the fries were perfectly fried!
The only issue was outdoor seating, not super inviting but know that there is space outdoors in/out of under a tent.
Service was okay! She didn’t do a bad job, but she never came to ask if we wanted another beer or more water. Just brought the bill when we were done eating. I would’ve had another beer, but felt rushed out. Wasn’t like the restaurant was busy or anything either so just a little weird. Otherwise the food and beer were both amazing!! Would definitely come back and hopefully try a few different beers.
They may close the patio for possible inclement weather even though it never shows (but forgot to remove the option for Open Table).
This place rocks! Good selection of beers, pleasant surprises in terms of the menu, and the preparation/taste was excellent!
Just another good experience at one of my long time local favorites. I'm glad their doors are still open!
The food was terrible. Definitely not the place to go.
Service was great but place just did not feel clean. Tables were not well wiped down and there were crumbs on our booth seats. Food was just ordinary....
Ok beer, food average at best.
Our service and food were outstanding! Very quick from order to table. Great beer selection.
The outdoor seating option was helpful. Kids liked the food. Server was super friendly.
This restaurant was awesome!! Our appetizer came out in two minutes and our meal came out five minutes after that. Everything was hot, clearly served as soon as it was done. The food was absolutely delicious. Great atmosphere, very reasonably priced, great service. When I visit DC, I will definitely eat there again!!
Service was remarkably bad, weak drinks, and tasteless food. Nothing special, sorry we wasted a dinner here.
Good food. Nothing fabulous. Just like any other restaurant.
Slow service mid-day Sunday. Decent pub food but nothing exceptional. If you are a beer or ale drinker this could be the place for you.
The food was nothing spectacular. It was our first time trying it after driving past for many years. We realize that due to the bounce back from COVID, many establishments are bringing back staff or training new staff. Unfortunately, no one could answer or would answer questions about the food or drink menu. Our food was made incorrectly twice - it was a burger with no bacon as I don’t eat pork. I am almost positive they simply plucked the bacon off of the top instead of remaking it. We don’t go out often so I certainly regret our first night out being here. We won’t return.
We had issues with ordering on their system. There was a QR code for the menu and ordering, but only half the people at our table were actually able to order through the program. The waitress spilled my cocktail and offered to bring me another, but never did. There are too many better restaurants options in Center City to put up with this kind of dismal service.
Good food and attentive service.
The pretzels were stale. We ordered tacos, pizza and calamari. The tacos had brown guacamole on them and the calamari and pizza both tasted like they were frozen and reheated.
Beers were great and food was delicious. Loved the off-street seating area!
We had a great time! Service was excellent! The only thing that we would change is a selection for a beer flight instead of a set few for the flight, but the waiter explained it gets crazy at times, so we can understand the need for speed and less confusion. Overall, it was awesome and we will be back!!
Online system was great for ordering, but we ordered appetizers and meals and everything came out at the same time. Would have been nice to have been told to enter them as separate orders. Only reason why I can't give 5 stars
Beer is great but food leaves a lot to be desired.
Cap City is one of my favorite places to eat near my office. I was soooo glad to see it opened back up when I went in the other day! My friend and I sat outside at a picnic table and it was very comfortable. The service always sets this place apart—I hadn’t been there in 14 months and the staff remembered me and even brought out my Diet Coke (they know I’m a fiend for it!) without my having to ask. The meal was as good as ever and oooh those crispy lovely sweet potato fries! Thank you for a great experience!!
Staff were very accommodating in helping us dine outside & very attentive
Had to order from our phones, cause of Covid and no handheld menus. Everything came out so fast we asked them if they just stared at the computer waiting on our order to come through. It was crazy fast. But we weren't rushed at all.
A little pricey but that's some places in DC. Try the club sandwich
the online menu and ordering is not user friendly and no one at the resturant seemed to care enough to fix it. the bartender was extremely rude and only served us one drink when he acknowledged we ordered two. My partner and I mainly visited DC to eat at this place because of the food and service we received in the past. However, this one visit was definitely disappointing and we will never ever visit this place again.
Great service and great food
Big burgers and very good drinks
This is a wonderful place. I have been here several times on my travels to DC, going out of my way to come here. The food is wonderful. The crab cakes are exceptional. They have 2 brewed beers and multiple guest brews as well as artisan whiskies. I will be back.
We had a very nice meal here. Loved the pretzels and Dijon dip.
Great place to watch sports, drink beer and have a good meal. Reasonably priced for the geographic location. I like the Porter the best.
Salad was on point
Food wasn’t good. Bland. Service was slow. Had to beg to get our drink orders and this is a “brewery”
Great service and good food
Terrific meatloaf dinner.....just like Mom used to make. Each time I come to Capitol City Brewing, I have the meatloaf more often than not. I enjoy it. Also, my friend had the brats and he said they were outstanding. The veggies that accompanied both meals were cooked just right. This place is VERY consistent.
Wonderful service & fun atmosphere!
Good beer selection including their homemade brews. Reasonable prices, fairly loud but overall good dinner
First time at the restaurant and everything was very smooth ! .Po ably do recommend getting a reservation before caps games . That seemed to make it very easy to get seating right away
Thanks !... will definitely be back !!
Excellent service, amazing food. Perfect atmosphere for pre Capitals game dinning
