The Capital Bar & Grill may be the embodiment of Capital’s Southern Comfortable culinary vision focusing on provincial comfort food with a particular emphasis on the bounty of Arkansas. The tools of the bar include the most sought-after liquors, mixers and ingredients. In sort of a back-to-the-future twist, it has been a devotion to handmade classic and custom cocktails (the Aviation vs. the Cropduster) that has established Capital Bar as a nationally-regarded spirits destination. All this said, we strive to create a fun, relaxing experience for all of our guests: The friendly atmosphere is especially suited to business lunches, after-work drinks and get-togethers, as well as special date nights.

A truly classic Little Rock spot. We had a table by the window which was nice. Would recommend and will go back.

I am sure due to the pandemic the menu is very limited. I was expecting a little bit more quiet atmosphere, but not so much. There should also be a valet sign out front, as we werent sure if valet was available and had to park on the parking deck around the corner.

Went before prelim night 1 of the Miss Arkansas competition. Food and drinks were amazing as always, but noise level was a bit much and service was slower than normal. Both of those things are to be expected with a packed house, though. Didn’t bother my table one bit and still had an outstanding experience!

I thought the menu would be more extensive. The service was okay but not great

I had written graduation on my reservation but it wasn’t acknowledged. I mentioned it to the waiter before we left and it still wasn’t acknowledged. I guess I was wrong to think they would bring my daughter a dessert or anything. 🤷‍♀️

I appreciate their attempt at new takes on some classics. But some items (like the roast beef poor boy) should at a the same.

But overall, so happy the capital Grill is open again.

It was absolutely marvelous to see the beauty and charm of the Capital Hotel reopened in full splendor. A special place and one of Little Rock's finest treasures!!!

I feel the price is part of the experience so it’s reflected in the rating. CBG is back and it was great to be back. Until I noticed the changes that is. Some drinks aren’t offered like Mexican Jack and coke. Hamburger has price increase but it’s not even the same burger. Maybe I went on an off day, not sure. It looks the same but it’s not the same. I’ll be back for sure to give it a other go.

First of all, I’m so happy CBG is RE-opened! There is a new, Impressive cocktail menu, and the tried and true appetizer favorites did not disappoint. I would like to see more entree options with smaller portions and healthier fare. The service was excellent. The noise level was extremely high. I remember this place having a nice quiet ambiance conducive to a relaxing happy hour or dinner with comfortable conversation with my dining partners. Last night’s noise level was high enough that conversation was difficult.
