Southern
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.

    I come here often as the hours work well with my work schedule and the quality is always good. Last night there were some challenges with holidays and short staffed. The manager and the entire staff were working extremely hard and did everything to offer a wonderful experience. It is worth the wait and the kindness and professionalism of everyone trying to make a wonderful experience was exceptional.

    Unfortunately there was no alcohol service that night even though it’s name is Bar and Grill. We were looking forward to a nice bottle of wine with dinner. There was no Indication that there was no bar service when the reservation was made.

    We had a fantastic Christmas Eve dinner here. I forgot our server’s name, but he went above and beyond to provide excellent service. The food was delicious and an outstanding value for the price. The restaurant itself was cozy yet upscale. We look forward to making Capital Bar and Grill our Christmas Eve tradition!

    We went the night before Christmas Eve. Our service was very good and the atmosphere is so nice. I had the shrimp and grits , they were very good with plenty of shrimp, my husband had the hamburger and said it was the best hamburger he had ever had and our friends split a rib eye they said it was tender and flavorful. the side vegetables were very good I tasted the brussel sprout and they were excellent . After our meal we enjoyed the lobby and getting our picture made beside the tree. The capital Hotel is such a special place and the Capital Bar and Grill did not disappoint.

    I was not very pleased with the table where we were seated! just inside the doorway! Everyone that walked by bumped into me! If you wanted to use every inch of space why not put up a screen or better yet a half wall! This was disappointing as we had made an online reservation well in advance!

    Two long time girlfriends getting together to celebrate a birthday, shrimp and grits was delicious, service was excellent. We have been very good friends since the late ‘70s so we always have a great time laughing and catching up and Capitol Hotel Bar is the perfect spot.

    Our first visit. We did the charcuterie and shared the fall salad. Everything was tasty and we enjoyed the overall experience. We will return and do entrees next time. Certainly a nicer restaurant in the area. We moved here in April from northern Virginia and the restaurant choices for good food are slim.

    With few dining options on Sunday Night in Downtown Little Rock, this is a no-brainer! Great location, valet parking, reasonable menu options, beautiful location - it is a perfect dining option.

    Food was delicious! The drink was the best cocktail ever! They called it a Malibu. The valet manager could probably use something for his anxiety though.

    My friend and I went for a girl's night and had a wonderful time. We both had the Shrimp and Grits, shared some onion rings and for dessert, I had the banana pudding, and she had the carrot cake. The Shrimp and Grits were perfectly prepared with just the right amount of spices, the onion rings were spot on, and the desserts were fabulous. The only thing that was lacking was the server being slow and not friendly at all, but we weren't in a hurry, so we just enjoyed the beautiful setting and our girl time!

    We stopped at Capital Hotel in Little Rock for the night on our way from Texas to Nashville. Luckily we had made reservations at The Capital Bar and Grill several months ago, it was packed at 5:00! The short ribs and burger were both delicious! As were the spicy pecan appetizer! No room for dessert! Maybe next time!

    We needed to have an early dinner and the Capital Bar and Grill began serving at 5. We were promptly seated and served. We chose light (soup and flatbread and cheeseburger). The flatbread was outstanding! We had eaten lunch there earlier in the week and also enjoyed it very much.

    It took forever to get our wine and appetizer. Then it took just as long to get our main courses. And they were not good. Expensive ribeye was covered in gravy to mask the bad taste. Short rib was tough and flavorless. $204 with tip for two to share a bottle of cheap wine, one appetizer and two mains. No dessert. Very disappointing.

    Ordered the Sweet Tea Brined Chicken “Breast”; I got a chicken wing with wing meat flattened out the size of a 1/2 dollar. The chef tried to tell us this was an Airline Style breast. If that was his intent; he didn’t know how to generate the proper cut to create an Airline Style breast. I did not get a chicken breast ! Been frequenting the Capital and Capital Bar for 36 years and this visit was a one night stay directly from the airport from a trip to Denver and leaving for Baltimore the next morning. Just frustrated to pay $177+ for a meal for my wife and I and have to eat a Cliff bar after dinner so I wouldn’t still be hungry after traveling all day. Shawn Rea

    It was our anniversary and I noted it on OpenTable. No one said anything about it. The restaurant was very cold and they said they could not adjust. There was only one choice in Cabernet by the bottle (which was just ok)very surprising for a nice restaurant. Service and food were excellent, but it is a bar and can get quite loud.

    This should have been better than it was. We would have liked to order from the 111 menu since the ribeye on the online menu wasn’t available. We were simply told “no”, not “111 is having a soft opening and can’t stretch to cover us”. The short ribs needed to cook longer. The drinks menu needs a refresh. I love this place and look forward to it being top notch again.

    Great ambiance. Had high hopes going in. Noise level was high, not sure why. Menu was limited on choices. Ordered the only featured steak on the menu. Was a 3/4” ribeye. Ordered medium rare. Came out medium well. Was disappointed for the price point.

    Exquisite food and service. There was a noisy group for which the staff were very apologetic and placed us as far away as possible. When that group had left the nose levels were very low.
