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.

    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!

    The only thing we'd love to see is more gluten free options. We love the Capital but have a family member that doesn't have great options.

    Two out of three dishes were excellent, but the Sea Bass was a disappointment. Creole sauce was lackluster, dish in general nothing special.

    I happened to eat lunch there 2 days in a row. Wedge salad was delicious, but OMG the burger was one of a kind! Tender and cooked perfect. The pimento cheese with homemade crackers was great too.

    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.

    I've had many delicious meals and drinks here but after this experience, I will sadly not be back. The food is always enjoyable, the location superb, has a great vibe, and the value is comparable to other restaurants in the area. This round, the food was fine with the exception of soggy crackers for the pimento cheese dip, but not as wonderful as it has consistently been. However, the service was probably the worst I have experienced in years. I was embarrassed to have suggested it to my colleague (who said it would be her first and last visit). No greeting by a server for 12 minutes, no specials shared, could not answer menu questions, went back to kitchen to ask something and forgot to come back, entrees came out without appetizer, appetizer was brought out when we were almost finished with entree with no plates or utensils to serve it with, no check-ins, and general unprofessional and apathetic demeanor of the server. While I understand we have to have grace because everyone is doing their best to just show up, this was so far below the standard that I experience at any restaurant in Little Rock, it will prevent me from coming back.

    This restaurant is inside of a hotel! It is beautiful unfortunately the night I went it was super busy and loud but the service was amazing. I was seated right away(with reservation) and due to it being my anniversary they even offered to move us to a bigger side of the restaurant, was very sweet of them! The food was amazing and they had strong drinks!

    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!
